Lite, but Loaded!
Hisense / 23-08-2021 / Tech
What is it with mobile phone manufacturers these days releasing various versions of their latest devices? Lately, every time a new range is announced you can expect it to be packaged with a mini this, or a max that option as well, which can be a little confusing for those of us that are just looking for a solid and reliable mobile device that gets the job done without all the thrills and the fuss. But then there is also a huge sector of the mobile phone market that sifts through the phone spec sheet with a fine-tooth comb, analysing and comparing every feature against all the other device options available to make sure they're getting the most out of their final choice, hopefully, because they're going to use all of the features, unlike some of us, I'm sure. But the mobile phone manufacturers obviously recognise this tech-savvy, content creation generation, and that's exactly why there are so many options out there these days.
With this recent trend in the new mobile phone market, what are the main differences between the different variations, and where is the 'compromise'? This is a question you have to ask when choosing a new device and often you'll find that the compromise comes in the build quality of the phone, especially with the 'mini' or 'lite' versions. Thankfully this is not the case with Hisense and its new Infinity H50 range. You see the one thing that you can always guarantee with a brand like Hisense is well-manufactured products at very competitive pricing. Hisense strives to design and develop products that are fitted with the latest available technology, without compromising on the quality to drive its prices down.
The Infinity H50 range has just been released and it comes in 3 variants: the standard H50, the H50 Zoom, and the H50 Lite. As good as the H50 standard and H50 Zoom versions are, the 'smaller' Lite version doesn't live up to its label as much as you think it does because you are getting very similar specs with the H40 predecessor from 2020. The new Infinity H50 Lite has a 6.55-inch display area that projects 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution, which is the immediate stand-out feature on the device, and is where Hisense derives the name 'Infinity' from.
When you look at the engine room of the H50 Lite, the device is powered by an Octa-core processor, which is supported by 4GB RAM and a 128GB storage capacity.
As far as the camera facilities are concerned, there are four separate sensors at the back. These are made up of a 48MP main lens, a 5MP wide lens, a 2MP macro lens, and another 2MP lens for depth photography. When you flip the Lite over, there is also a 16MP forward-facing peep-hole for all the content-creating selfie action. The selfie lens also includes a setting called 'Beauty Mode', which uses AI to identify the surrounding light conditions, automatically adjusting itself to capture the best image. Hisense has also included Face ID recognition with the forward-facing camera for increased security on the device.
We can get even more granular with some of the other features like Bluetooth 4.2, hybrid SIM slots, USB-C 2.0 charging and data capabilities, the 5100mAh lithium battery, or the standard Google Android 10 operating system, which is extremely user-friendly, but it is clearly evident the Hisense has gone to town and left no shortfalls with the Lite variant of its Infinity H50 range.
So, if you're in the market for a new mobile device capable of providing you with a seamless experience that is supported with just the right amount of technology when you need it, then the new Hisense Infinity H50 Lite should definitely be considered.
