Photos taken with the help of this smartphone, could surprise at this price. Thanks to the bright display, most of the photos look very good. When shooting landscape images, we observed that the camera tended to overexposure images, but the manual reduction of the exposure value gave us the best results. The details are pretty good, but when you view your photos close-up, you'll see fine graininess. The macros are also crisp and the phone is able to accurately capture the colors. Taking macros indoors is a bit slower because the device is not so fast blocking the focus. Photos taken in low light were also decent, and the smartphone managed to maintain a low level of marriage. Parts are well preserved when around a lot of light and you will see graininess only when scaling to full size. Infinix Hot S3 has a 20-megapixel camera with dual LED flash. The Beautify mode is turned on by default, and it gives you a quick transition for the bokeh effect. We found that the bokeh is decent, but sometimes blurs the edges that were supposed to be in focus. With magnification, the images of the essence seem grainy. Video recording is the maximum for 1080p both cameras. The color reproduction is good, but there is no stabilization, so you will need a constant manual setting during recording. Verdict Budget smartphones are being improved all the time, and Infinix Hot S3 is one of the most impressive devices we have recently tested. This is not the most powerful budget smartphone, but it has a hardware that is qualitatively performing its work. Like Infinix Zero 5 Pro, the display is the strongest aspect of Infinix Hot S3. The performance of the camera is affordable and the battery should serve you all day.
