Review: Hisense Delivers Very Subtle ‘KO’ Blow!


The title says it all! Introducing the Hisense KO – It’s shockproof, dustproof and waterproof. So regardless how adventurous and daring you may be, the phone’s IP protection has you covered.


Its 5.0-inch display boasts 1280×720, fresh and clear packed with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 415 octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM and packing a mammoth 32GB worth of storage. Even though the device does support dual-sim, there is no SD card support. With regards to camera quality, it features a 13MP camera in the back, and a 5MP camera at the front.

Hisense is going for a rough but practical design, where the device stays firmly in your hand thanks to the rubber, but it never comes across as cheap.

In terms of performance, the device s absolutely impressive! Apps loaded lightning fast and did not heat up at the back when under pressure. The battery isn’t bad at all, lasting almost a complete day with all major social networking apps being switched on.

The Hisense UI is definitely one of the most amazing things on the device. It’s more reminiscent of iOS than Android and bares quit a few similarities. It also has next to no built-in apps, which keeps the OS clean and clutter free at all times.

All in all, for the price tag (under R4 000) that’s attached to the Hisense Infinity KO, just proves that Hisense are definitely looking to take the mobile market by storm considering this device has so much more here than just the ability to handle some dust and water. Fast… Powerful & Absolutely Reasonable!
