Design and Construction
The Hot Note is a mid-range offering with a 5.5-inch HD display up front which equates to a decent pixel density of 267ppi. Placed above it are the receiver and 2 megapixel front camera. Down below are three unlit capacitive buttons for navigation.
Found on the right side are the plastic buttons for the volume and power / lock. Right up top is the headset jack. While down at the bottom is the microphone and microUSB port.
At the back you will find the 8 megapixel camera, single LED flash, andthe loudspeaker down below. It has a removable back panel which gives you access to the microSD and SIM card slots.
The Hot Note looks like a typical Android device but it offers something that is still rare in some Android smartphones and that is a big 4,000 mAh battery. According to the company, the Hot Note can last up to two days and that is with constant 3G data connectivity.
Build-wise, the Hot Note feels slim and light for a smartphone with a large battery at 8.9mm thick and 172g weight. The sides and rear feature a brushed metallic finish which feels good in the hands and nice to look at. The unit we tested features the anthracite grey but the company says it will bring in more color options.
