Gadgetren – The Infinix HOT 30 and Infinix HOT 30i are two of the many devices we can think of when we want to propose to a new mobile phone in 2023.
Both are available at a relatively affordable price where the Infinix HOT 30 is priced at IDR 1,899,000 while the Infinix HOT 30i is priced at IDR 1,499,000. However, it also offers specifications and a number of interesting features compared to similar devices.
It’s just that with a fairly large price difference, the two Infinix phones are truly different devices. In this case, the Infinix HOT 30 targets a slightly higher caste than the Infinix HOT 30i.
The difference between Infinix HOT 30 vs Infinix HOT 30i
The data processing kitchen of the two devices is the most obvious differentiation. Infinix HOT 30 brings MediaTek Helio G88 which incidentally was developed for a higher category in comparison MediaTek Helio G37 courtesy of Infinix HOT 30i.
On paper, the capabilities of the Helio G88 will be far superior to the Helio G37. This mid-range chipset from MediaTek has a more powerful core with a more updated architecture, although the frequency is indeed lower.
A little background for those of you who don’t know, the Helio G88 comes with an ARM Cortex-A75 and Cortex-A55 architecture core with speeds up to 2GHz. Meanwhile, the Helio G37 is still based on the Cortex-A53 which can be driven up to 2.2GHz.
This difference in data processing capabilities will definitely affect the user experience offered by the Infinix HOT 30 and 30i. Moreover, the two mobile phones also have display support which is quite lacking.
Infinix HOT 30 is developed with IPS size display 6.78 in. Not only is it wider, but the board it uses has resolution Full HD+ (2400 x 1080 pixels) which offers better picture support than Infinix HOT 30i.
Infinix HOT 30i display is because it only supports resolutions up to HD+ (1612 x 720 pixels) with the size 6.6 in. But thankfully, the panels belonging to the two phones are both supported by support for refresh rates up to 90Hz.
The camera domain is the next differentiator. While both have a 50MP main lens coupled with an AI sensor, the Infinix HOT 30 has a high-resolution front camera. 8MP where it is higher than that of Infinix HOT 30i which is still 5 MP.
Although both rely on a 5,000mAh battery, the charging support for the two devices is also different. Infinix HOT 30 is equipped with technology 33W fast charging while only the Infinix HOT 30i 10W just.
Absence of features NFC (Near Field Communication) on the Infinix HOT 30i also makes the difference between the two even more visible. This short range communication protocol is because it is already available on the Infinix HOT 30 which costs more.
