The Hot 6 Pro which is the company’s latest device offers features and more to the customer at a budget. The sides and back are made of plastic and only the front is covered in glass. On the left, we have the dual nano SIM/MicroSD combo tray and on the right, we have the volume rocker and power button.The headphone jack is at the bottom, which is usually not comfortable. The loudspeaker is also at the bottom and it is sufficiently loud. It uses a micro-USB port for charging, which is fine since it is easy to get third party cables for cheap.
The Hot 6 Pro is huge all thanks to its 6” 18:9 screen. The phone is rather tall and it has substantial bezels and the screen looks quite good for a 720p display (1440 x 720 to be exact) and using it for browsing or watching videos is a treat. The rear sports the dual rear cameras with the bright LED flash to the side, and the fingerprint scanner towards the top half. The antennas are well hidden at the top and bottom.
The Snapdragon 425 with the 3GB RAM enabled me to multitask with ease, especially in multiscreen mode, which works in perfect squares thanks to the 18:9 display. The Hot 6 Pro also has 32GB of internal storage which gives you the leverage to download a lot of apps. Most of your ‘big files’ can be kept in your SD card. This helps in freeing up the internal storage.
The launcher lets you customize a bunch of settings like how densely packed the icons are, infinity scroll, how to scroll between panes, icon size, auto-arrangement of icons and much more. My favorite setting is smart arrange which arranges your icons into relevant folders, like Twitter and Facebook are put under ‘Social’. It is not perfect yet since you will still see some apps in the wrong folders, but still cool nonetheless. The fingerprint scanner works well but it is not the fastest ever used. However, just like most fingerprint scanners out there, make sure your fingers are dry while using it or else it won’t work.
