The Infinix hot 9 is an upgrade from the Infinix hot 8 but not by much. It is a prevent decent phone with a solid battery. Infinix has also changed their strategy of starting their base models with 16gb of Rom so the 32gb on the Hot 9 is a welcome development. Its not a big upgrade from most devices in it’s price range but the Infinix hot 9 is still an upgrade nonetheless.
