To begin with, the Infinix Hot 9 Play is a big phone. In fact, it is even larger and wider (though slightly lighter) than the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. The phone has a plastic body, as expected, and the back panel features a gem-cut structure that reflects changing colours depending on how light strikes its surface.

Similarly, the rear panel of the Hot 9 Play has a glossy texture, which attracts fingerprints and smudges. As a result, we strongly advise you to place a good case on top of it to avoid having to wipe it down every now and again. The buttons, like the frame, are constructed of plastic. Despite this, they are clicky and responsive enough for me. The dual SIM tray is located on the left side of the phone, as are the buttons.

Port selection is also rather good. At the bottom, there is a normal 3.5mm headphone jack as well as a Micro USB port for data transfer and charging. On top of Midnight Black, Hot 9 Play is available in Quetzal Cyan, Violet, and Ocean Wave colour variants. I was initially intrigued to the Violet variation, but this alternative has grown on me as well.

Infinix Hot 9 Play specs

Moving on to the display, the Infinix Hot 9 Play boasts a large 6.82-inch TFT IPS LCD. So, content consumption on such a huge phone was an incredible delight… well, not so much. Unfortunately, in order to push for huge numbers, OEMs do not really care about the complementing features that are important for a well-rounded experience. The Hot 9 Play’s huge display has a subpar HD+ display with a pixel density of 263 PPI.

That spec sheet is sufficient to make a broad assumption regarding the display’s quality, and you would be correct. It is lousy at best. The big display and low resolution are not a good combination, and it shows. Videos are not pleasurable since the image is far too dull, and subjects frequently have this strange white edge to them – a result of the phone attempting to compensate for the phone’s low pixel density for such a large phone. The colours are not spectacular either, but that is to be expected for a phone in this price bracket. Overall, do not fall for the Hot 9 Play’s enormous display hype because it does not convey the entire picture.
