Top Features of Infinix Hot 5 X559

Infinix Hot 5


1. High Battery Capacity

How long your mobile device can last matters a lot. Of course, you wouldn't be connecting your phone to a power source every now and then. That's where this device meets up to the task. Boosting a 4000 mAh battery, users can be confident of long hours usage without disappointment. On the average, users are guaranteed a 35 hours talk time on the 2G network and a 24 hours talk time on a 3G network. The standby time stands at a whopping 837 hours equivalent to 35 days. 

For game lovers, social media enthusiasts and multimedia fans, this is definitely a suited smartphone to enjoy all the fun confidently.

2. High-Performance OS

This mobile phone has been built to run on the famous XOS Chameleon Operating System with top performance, optimisation and security features. It is a customised OS based on Android OS, but tailored to deliver flexible user designs and enhance the experience. Additionally, its power management features ensure that 4000 mAh battery functions at a level double its basic capacity. You can read more on this OS here.

3. Aesthetic Design

This device has a rigid structure combined with colourful 3D texture to encapsulate youthfulness, beauty, elegance, and passion. Its slim body design allows for one-hand grasps and further promotes portability. The edges are slightly curved with striking glows that emulates mirrored solar reflections. 

With five different colour variants of Fine Gold, Sandstone Black, White, Lemon and Red, you have a whole lot to choose from.

4. Fingerprint Scanner

Looking for a faster and convenient way to secure your device? Then, this device is for you. The Fingerprint scanner improves the security of the device. No more need for long and cumbersome passwords and patterns, just a few seconds of fingerprint sensing does the magic. This feature combines with the Xhide App to deliver unimaginable security control on your files, data, folders, pictures, and other information you store on it.

5. Performance-boosting Storage Capacity

When the question of storage is put forward, I usually consider two aspects, the RAM and ROM sizes. The RAM size contributes the overall processing speed, while the ROM simplify determines the number of documents you can store and applications that can be installed on it. 

It has a 2 GB RAM to optimise performance and a 16 GB internal storage capacity which is expandable up to 32 GB with a micro SD Card.

6. Higher Definition Camera

Though not among the top megapixels camera, this one is enough to capture high-quality pictures and videos. An 8 MP camera with five internal lens elements and multiple shooting modes captures your photos with the finest details. The 5 MP camera equally captures beautiful photos. Assisted by a soft light flash, brightness is replenished for capturing in dim environments.

7. Front Dual Speakers

The dual speakers located at the front utilise Dirac Stereo Widening technology to deliver high-impact audio and video contents with pleasant softness and tone. You can choose to have a taste of the high-volume capacity rare in most mobile phones. These features enable users to stream videos and media contents with much clarity and focus.

How to Enable or Unhide App Freezer on Infinix

The Infinix app Freezer is a very useful tool preinstalled on Infinix phones running on XOS Chameleon Operating Systems. The app contributes immensely to how users can manage the RAM space of their devices.
It simply evaluates how you use some apps after a time, and recommends that the ones that are rarely used be frozen. By freezing rarely used apps, more space is freed as frozen apps appear to be uninstalled, even though they can be unfrozen anytime.

How to Freeze and Unfreeze Apps to Manage Storage Space

The Infinix Freezer App is a useful app built into the XOS Chameleon to enhance storage management, simply by preventing rarely used apps from taking up unnecessary space. It is not a new thing that some smartphones require more space for other relevant apps – e.g. Email app, social media apps, etc. - to function effectively.
However, the available space appears to be taken up by applications rarely used, and surprisingly, enormous space is consumed by these apps. Though there are several approaches such as clearing apps cache, uninstalling rarely used apps, using a cleaner, among others, using Infinix App Freezer provides the balance between safety and efficient space management.

How to Use XOS Chameleon to Hide/Unhide Apps, Pictures, Videos and Documents

With the universe transiting every day towards the mobile grid, mobile devices have become the smart tool for administrative duties, team management, communication, data storage, and other activities of high importance. The portability attached to these devices have made them so relevant that top business establishments provide their staffs with them to get things done even on the go. This is seen as a great technological leap expected to ease activities and enhance productivity.

Using mobile phones for managing accounts, staffs, personal business, large business units, government activities, and many others requires storing some confidential information on the phone. That translate to the need for security and XOS Chameleon's XHide App provides just that needed protection against unauthorised access to files, folders, and applications on the phone.

How to lock and unlock your Android Phone with Fingerprint Sensor

As mobile technologies keep emerging and old ones improved upon, new threats equally arise. To counter the identified threats, several security measures are put in place by manufacturers at different levels and degrees to ensure that the privacy of users is kept intact. In addition, a combination of features and components - both hardware and software - have been designed to bolster the security of mobile devices aimed at protecting the confidential information of users.
One of such security measures is the development of fingerprint sensors on smartphones and other smart mobile devices. Though fingerprint sensors have been used with other devices to check security leakages, their recent inclusion in mobile phones’ development has been deemed an excellent security leap.
Recent security concerns have been centred around unauthorised access to personal information of users by individuals – malicious apps are the commonest channels for these attacks. This is easier when such phones are not…
