Sooner or later, an upgrade to Infinix hot 2 ♨ is here with us. The contemporary tool from Infinix mobility was released the day past amidst large expectations but i'm by hook or by crook now not impressed to peer some other 1GB RAM inside the hot ♨ series.



specifications and features of Infinix Hot 3 X554 as presented at the event. Like i said earlier, it features a 1GB RAM and 16GB internal memory with a good screen size of 5.5 inches placing it in the ranks of Phablets.

However one aspect that baffles me is the fee distinction of this phone in Kenya and Nigeria. Even as it's far bought at just $75 in Kenya, here in Nigeria, we're supposed to pay N26,500 to get the device. Although its not that pricey however why have to there be rate
distinction?

As indicated above, the infinix hot 3 was launched with a price tag of N26,500 . While the price tag seem very affordable, something isn’t just right. Elly, few
days back, gave us a hint via comment stating that the hot 3 has been launched in Kenya with a price tag of $75 (75USD).

I also did some little research and stumbled on a kenya website currently selling the hot 3 x554 smartphone for KSH 7,899. Since i don’t know the current exchange rate, i decided to consult Google and Google said
Kenyan Shilling 7,899 equals to N15,507.79 in Naira.



Okay, i do understand that the exchange rate provided by Google may not be accurate and dollar rate affects the price but then, let’s do some very simple mathematics going by what Elly said.
As at today being the 4th of April, 2016, i made a purchase online and my bank charged me N305 to a dollar. Some banks in Nigeria charge even less. Now, N305 x 75 = N22,875 . If we want to go further by using the black market dollar exchange rate, N320 x 75 = N24,000. The difference may be very little but i don’t think it’s fair. So my question is, why the difference in
price? Are we being cheated?
