Hisense Infinity H30 Lite phone review
"A phone without pretensions, for users looking for the basic and a very economical price."
Modest display resolution and visibility
Unlock facial recognition sometimes fails
The Chinese firm Hisense will ring you mostly for its televisions and appliances, but a few years ago it also added mobile phones to its catalog. What are your weapons to compete with other well-known brands in this field? Mid-range and input devices. The Hisense Infinity H30 Lite model belongs to the latter. It is a phone with everything that an average user may need for their day to day.
A manageable device
Hisense Infinity H30 Lite mounts a 6.1-inch screen, only invaded by a drop-shaped notch in the center and bevels that slightly diminish it. It offers resolution HD + (720 x 1,560 pixels), which is not the best to watch videos and series but it does the size. For unlocking it gives two options, for facial recognition and with the fingerprint. The reader for the latter is in the back, a comfortable and effective place, although the trend that has been imposed now is under the screen. Come on, that the reader ah has already become outdated, but not for that reason it is still practical. The fingerprint reader has not given us problems, but the facial recognition has not always worked well.
The plastic finish of the case boasts a bright finish (very beautiful) in blue. Next to the reader, vertically, there is a dual camera. On the right side, the mobile integrates the volume control and power buttons. On the left, the button that activates the Google Assistant. This model does not connect with USB-C but with a micro USB. You can connect headphones or headphones with the mini connector Jack 3.5 mm
With a size of 153.7 x 73.6 x 9 mm, the phone is manageable with one hand and feels light. Earphones and a transparent gel case are included in the box to listen to music and protect it instantly when the phone is released.
Specifications, in its range
This model offers modest technical characteristics, as expected in a device of the input range with a very affordable price. It integrates an SC9863A eight-core processor, 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage (expandable with microSD memory cards up to 128 GB). The capacity of the battery is located at 3,000 mAh, which should give a day of use with a single charge with medium use, but this will vary if it is intensive or moderate. In our tests, it has been recharged from 0 percent to half in 50 minutes and completely in 145 minutes.
A dual camera
In the photographic section, this model incorporates a dual rear camera of 16 and 5 megapixels with artificial intelligence, capable of recognizing up to 12 scenes. Take decent photos, with the possibility of making adjustments to the virtual aperture before shooting, among other editing tools. The camera does not have night mode, but you can always use the flash. The one of the selfiesphotography with 8 megapixels.

In software, the basic
Infinity Lite comes with the Android 9 Pie operating system and therefore works with all Google applications of Google Play Services like all Android phones except the Huawei Mate 30 Pro. You will also find tools such as a sound recorder, FM radio. You will not find pre-installed third-party applications. From its own interface, it brings the AI Guardian application to optimize the use of the phone, both in energy saving and in storage memory.
The Hisense Infinity H30 Lite phone will not let you down if you are going to use it for basic and everyday uses, such as talking on the phone, sending WhatsApp and email messages. To listen to music and, above all, watch series is a bit short, but you can power. The camera fulfills its function, takes acceptable photos, especially considering its price of 149 euros. Despite feeling and looking very plastic, the glossy finish gives it a pleasant and attractive appearance.
