Infinix HOT 30 Vs Redmi 12C specs comparison

Infinix officially launched the HOT 30 back in April.  The HOT 30 has undergone significant upgrades to its processor, especially in terms of screen, fast charging, and video features. 

These upgrades make it a leading gaming phone with superior screen quality,  powerful performance, and the fastest charging capabilities in its class. We have the review video up which you can watch here. 

Infinix is selling the HOT 30 for Ksh.22,899 and at that price, the phone goes head to head with devices like the 4GB + 128GB variant of the Redem 12C (Review Video) which is available for Ksh. 17, 300.

Both the Redmi 12C and the Infinix HOT 30 are pretty good budget phones. The Redmi 12C is powered by a MediaTek Helio G85 SoC while the Infinix HOT 3O comes with a Mediatek Helio G88 (12nm). But which of these two phones should you really buy?
