So you have probably spotted the difference right? The main difference is in the battery, camera and the hardware. The hot 8 has a 5,000mah battery while the smart 4 has a 4,000mah battery. Hot 8 has an 8mp selfie camera while the smart 4 has a 5mp selfie camera. The Hot 8 has a dual rear camera of 13 and 2-mega pixels while the smart 4 has only a single rear camera which is an 8mp camera. So have you now seen the difference?

Both this smartphone is priced about the same, that is 36,000 naira which is about $100 USD. Here is my advice, get the Infinix hot 8, don’t buy the Smart 4. If you like photography, long battery life and a bit faster processor, you will definitely get the Infinix hot 8 over the Smart 4.

But if you want a backup phone for browsing the internet and attending to some of your client, you can get the Smart 4. If you also have a sibling in junior secondary class, you can as well get the infinix smart 4 for him or her. But all in all, the hot 8 is better than the Smart 4. Hope you are clear now and that i have opened your eyes for a better purchase.
