Hotwav M5 Plus is the big brother of Hotwav M5 and both phones are 3G smartphones. The Hotwav M5 Plus like the former was released in the month of November 2018. It is an entry level smartphone too but it is a bit larger than the M5 and the rear camera is more powerful. The only snag here is lack of RAM.

In this review, we are going to take a look at all aspects of the features of Hotwav M5 Plus. These include design, price, camera, network, performance, battery life, and more.

Camera Features

This aspect is a very simple one. At the rear there is a main 13 MP lens which comes with LED flash. The video performance is 720p@30fps. At the front there is a selfie camera of 5 MP f/2.4 aperture.

Camera features include among others, geotagging, auto focus, HDR, touch focus, face detection, and panorama.

Hardware and Software

Android OS v8.1 Oreo is the primary software in the Hotwav M5 Plus. We believe that this will update from Android Oreo to Android Pie in due time. Supportive as well are the other hardware components such as MediaTek MT6580P of process technology 28nm. In addition to that, there is 1.3 GHz Quad-core Cortex A7 CPU, and Mali 400 MP2 GPU in the device. These run on 32-bit architecture.

Sensors found in Hotwav M5 Plus include accelerometer, proximity, ambient light, and fingerprint.

Network and Connectivity

There is no 4G in this device. That is to say that Hotwav M5 Plus runs on just 2G and 3G, which means it is able to handle GSM and HSPA networks. There is provision for dual Nano SIM card slots to enable smooth running of the connectivity.

Other essential components of connectivity include Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, mobile hotspot, GPS, A-GPS, headphone jack, micro USB 2.0, and others. There is no infrared, NFC, or HDMI in the device.

Battery Life

Powering the Hotwav M5 Plus is a 3050 mAh Li-Po non-removable battery which has no wireless charging and no fast charging technology. Talk time and fast standby time has not been specified. However, the battery is able to pull the smartphone through a day of heavy use if placed on full charge overnight.
