INFINIX HOT S3 (Blog 1): Design, Features and Accessories.

Hey Guys! Welcome back to my Blog. So as we all should know, Infinix Mobile launched a new smartphone; Hot S3, and its a MUST HAVE! I will be reviewing it for the next couple of weeks to give you guys an Insight of what this amazing smartphone has to offer.

Lets get to it!

1). DESIGN.

The Hot S3 comes with a Unique Plastic Build which still gives you a premium metallic feel and a nicely firm grip. The phone comes in three colors; Brush Gold, Sandstone Back and Topaz Blue (And I got the Sandstone Black cause I just love black lol)

Due to the type of build material, the phone gives you a decent weight of about 150 grams which is ideal because its not heavy, and neither is it light (and possibly irritating, lol).

It also comes with a Lithium-ion (Li-ion) 4000mAh In-built Battery which is able to last you a whole day +’ under moderate use.

The Infinix Hot S3 also comes with a 13MP Rear Camera which is a very decent measure, and still gives you super quality photos to enhance your photography desire. The Back Camera is also accompanied by a ‘Dual Tone’ LED Flash which maintains the best photo quality in places with very low light.

The two button rails on the side are the Up and Down Volume buttons, and at the bottom lays the Power Button.

The Hot S3 also comes with a Fingerprint Scanner at the back (round feature about Name) and can be used to confirm purchases too other than securing your phone (wow).

Coming to the top and bottom of the phone, the bottom (upper photo) has a really good loudspeaker which produces amazing sound (when playing music and alike), charging port and a mouth piece. The 3.5mm headphone jack was placed at the top of the phone (lower photo).

The Infinix Hot S3 comes with a 20MP front facing (low light selfie) camera which means it automatically adjusts its exposure in low light situations hence allows you to still take your Proper Selfies. It is also backed by an LED flash (which is also used in a Special Feature I will mention at the Bottom 😉 )

The Hot S3 comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 Processor (1.4GHz) WHICH SAYS GOODBYE to Lags when using your smartphone and really speeds up your operations when Browsing through the Web, or simply multitasking through your Apps. This is backed by a 3GB Ram and thats just Amazing.

The Hot S3 also comes with a 5.7 ‘Infinity Display’, 18.9 Aspect Ratio (One of my Favorite Features) and this really helps give you enough room to do and review your work. The Display is built with a 1440 x 720 Pixel Density which gives you about 285 PPI, which are really good features for a Bright, Crisp and Clean Display output.

As if thats all, the Hot S3 also comes with the “Facial Recognition” Feature, that means you can Unlock the phone with your Face, and I tried it out a couple of times after unboxing and its absolutely fast and accurate. In situations of low light (or darkness) the Front LED is there to make your face Visible and not limit your Facial ID use at all!

2). ACCESSORIES.

The Hot S3 is packed with 3.5mm Headphones which produce a premium quality sound, ideal for all your audio output privacy, a USB Cable and a Charging Head to keep your phone powered up (Its Really Fast at charging your phone actually).

3). USER MANUAL AND WARRANTY.

The Hot S3 also comes with an amazing 1 year warranty for the Phone and 6 months for the Accessories, so you don’t have to worry about purchasing a faulty phone (in the slimmest possible chances).

4). ADDITIONAL FEATURES

The Hot S3 has Two Nano Sim Card slots and a Micro SD card slot all on one Tray, so you are able to expand your storage space to up to 128GB (on top of the 32 GB Inbuilt storage space), as well as use two sim cards to expand your network connectivity options.

It is equipped with 4G connectivity for fast browsing and streaming.

Comes with the Android 8.0 Oreo Operating System.

And Last but not the least, it also features “GPS”.

______________________________

So guys that, THAT RIGHT THERE, Is the Amazing Infinix Hot S3 Smartphone and Im super excited to have it.

With all those features it comes packaged with I hardly see no reason why you shouldn’t consider it as your next Phone Purchase.

Im yet to Experience it to the fullest as I will take it out for all my Adventures and Spins, and really have the ability to Express Myself through It. Everything will be posted on my Social Media Accounts.

Here are the Monday to Friday Wrist Watches to consider.

Now as a lot of you know, an outfit just feels EMPTY without a watch, I mean, dahh .. and if you want to call yourself a dandy man, you should have a fine taste in wrist watches (apart from your cologne collection, which we will look at later). So if you are having a little struggle with your go-to wrist watch brands you might want to consider these 5 wrist watches any dandy man would wear from Monday to Friday. Lets get into it:

1). FOSSIL

I think this is one of the most underrated mens watches in town. But if you consider yourself a clean guy, a nice leather strap in blue, finished with a gold bezel and a chronograph, Fossil definitely delivers just what you need for almost any occasion.

2). CARTIER

If you call yourself a wrist watch enthusiast then you should know that Cartier has produced some of the best go-to wrist watches for many formal (and informal) events. This is definitely one of the way back Swiss watches that are popularly known for classy men only. So on that part of the week that you are throwing a blazer on, finish the look with a Cartier wrist watch and turn heads.

3). VACHERON CONSTANTIN

This is one of the not so popular wrist watches, that should only mean its not for the average of course. Most dandy men on Instagram (like @erikforsgren) has been spotted wearing a Vacheron Constantin and we Immediately loved the outcome. So if we are talking of a Business Meeting and you may need something to draw people’s attention from you as you think of other points, wear this and hold your chin often. (No seriously).

4). ROLEX – Day Date

People usually tend to abandon brands just because they have become popularly known amongst people, but thats a mistake. Rolex has forever been one of the trade mark wrist watches across different income ranges, but we are not talking about just any Rolex, an ORIGINAL Day Date is a perfect match for a nice day of Golf while discussing Business with your colleagues. So behave yourself and get yourself one.

5). SEVEN FRIDAY

Another not so popular wrist watch is the Seven Friday and this is definitely not your average mechanical watch. Most suit lovers who are confident in themselves have been spotted wearing a Seven Friday wrist watch and immediately stood them out. So whether you are going out shopping with the Family, or attending a Business meeting, or a simple Brunch with your friends, wearing a Seven Friday wrist watch will definitely bring out your Dandy Identity.

Meet my new Inspo – Anele Papu, South African born photographer and all-round multi talented creative.


I came across Anele’s instagram page one time (cant really remember how, lol) but ever since i followed him i have received a decent amount of motivation to further my fashion skills, photography skills and also, well im thinking of starting the gym and Anele does all three. 


One of the things i noticed about this guy is the way he simply alligns his outfits, so simple and neat, and they just come out really awesome. His passion for photography has given me a little further push to continue my hunt for a personal good quality camera to improve my fashion showcases, and the fact that he works out too, and im about to start working out, how much more inspiration could one be looking for? 

Born in Port Elizabeth, Papu attended the school of Music, Art & Design at Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University. He gained incredible experience over the past two years through his Multimedia & Marketing company, Vulzee. It was during this time he had the pleasure of working and collaborating in multiple projects with South Africa’s finest talent and exceptional companies.


His career was launched when he recently moved to Johannesburg in early 2016 and has had the opportunity to collaborate and work with remarkable brands such as Roll Royce, Adidas, Huawei, Daniel Wellington, Uber South Africa, TopMan, Jaguar South Africa. His work has been featured in exhibitions with Adidas and publications such as GQ South Africa.

The 5 things that shouldn’t miss in every man’s closet.

Okay so today we’re gonna talk about the five things that every decent man should have amoungst his stuff, and i know some of you might already have some or all of these (like myself) so i though we help out a few that might, well, need such advice.

So lets get straight into it.

1). A Pair of White Shoes.

Come on guys, long gone are the days when one would say, “I don’t own a pair of white shoes because its a hard color to maintain.” By now you should know that white shoes need some extra care right after stepping into them (you are not clean till you can maintain the color white, period). I advise simple, non-sophisticated shoes like Common Projects, Vans, and even Adidas Superstars. They are quite an easy get away for people that want their outfits simple and neatly done. They also help one to come up with an outfit because they easily match almost any color due to their neutral characteristic. So grab yourself a pair of white shoes. ITS AN ORDER. lol.

2). High Quality ‘Designer’ Wallet. 

A good, quality wallet gives you confidence. Now i know you might be wondering why I’m emphasizing the designer part: well it doesn’t have to be a designer branded wallet, but for a person like me i like accessories that are easily defined by their brand; talk of Cartier, Gucci, Bottega Veneta, Fendi … It just doesn’t feel right to have this really good outfit on, with a low quality wallet in your pocket. It doesn’t have to be designer, but get a wallet of HIGH quality that will last long. Some months back i spent my last cash (i wont mention how much) to buy myself a Prada Wallet and up to now, I always look at it and, it just feels so dope (the texture + name).

3). Turtle Neck


You can have any other jersey in your closet, but grab a turtle neck too. Turtle necks are really nice jerseys to wear when it comes to winter days especially when you want to keep warm and look stylish at the same time. They have a characteristic attached to them of automatically making you a ‘cool, clean and nicely dressed’ person even without adding too much effort to your outfit. So i advise you get at least one turtle neck jersey; color based on the type of clothes you have (I advise burgundy, light grey or black).

4). Wrist watch(es)


Most people have the mindset of saying a wrist watch is for time; well yes it is but there is another reason you should have a wrist watch in your closet – to complete your outfit. I have walked out of my room on different occasions without my wrist watch and trust me i felt just how incomplete my outfit was, forcing me to rush back in and get it. However, I advise each man to have AT LEAST TWO (2) high quality, branded watches. Come on guys, save some cash and get two watches because being dapper requires spending actually. You can buy them according to the type of dress codes you like. Have one for killer occasions and another for daily use. You might want to pick a neutral color like black – and also brown (brown is even more classy). 

5). Deodorant 


“Buy Deodorant, Buy Deodorant, Buy DEO-DO-RANT.” You may not have enough cash for a perfume, but deodorant must NEVER miss out in your closet. In fact Deodorant and Roll On are two of the things that must never miss in every man’s closet. Go ahead, walk naked outside if you want to, but smell good while you piss people off with your indecency. But on a serious note, it is vital to wear deodorant after each shower to not only avoid disturbing the public, but also for your personal hygiene.

Meet Beverly Hills’ Menswear Influencer – Perkens Bien Aime


Young and want to get your suit game up? Then this young dapper man might just be your redemption.

[And guess what, At the end of this blog post we have a surprise guest whos a friend and partner of Perkens -whom i will also write a blog about soon]

Perkens, a young and classy gent from Beverly Hills, California, moved to Los Angeles to pursue his dreams as a designer. In a short biography about him he added:

“I am intensely passionate about menswear and my goal is to be able to contribute to this ever-evolving world of fashion.”


Perkens is an Insider at the fashion movement called Gentleman’s Quarterly (GQ) and also owns a website called ‘Garcona La Mode’ (you can just add .com to visit it) where he shows us what to wear in different seasons.


The first time i saw Perkens was on Instagram and one thing that captivated me was just how clean and simply arranged his outfits were.

Talk about switch up, Perkens shows us how to best balance between office wear for the young gent that just graduated from college or university, to a nicely done casual wear that’s suitable for any ‘clean’ environment.

You can follow him on his Instagram account where you can stay updated with some of the most classy, dapperly done outfits he has in store for us – @perkinsbienaime.

Below are some of the cool outfits i managed to fetch from his Instagram and website:

As promised, our surprise guest is Fashion and Lifestyle blogger, ‘Blake Scott’ , on our far right >.

Justice ‘Hytic’ Kazunga – Media Company CEO that can switch up looks!


Meet Zambia’s very own Fashion Enthusiast Justice ‘Hytic’ Kazunga, pursing his studies in Russia at Tula State University, who is also the C.E.O of the media company ‘305 Media’ which focuses on various trends and latest media content especially from Zambian Photography, Music and Music Videos and other related stuff, and is aimed at boosting the Zambian Multimedia game. Now thats just Brilliant!


I have been a fan of Justice’s ability to switch up from Dapper looks, which i have seen him in while wearing every dapper man’s essential shoe – the Derby ‘Cap Toe’, to casual fits where he gives us ideas on how to rock sporty shoes like Adidas, Nike and also slip-on type of shoes … not forgetting the other ways he loves his blazers worn other than the usual office preference, which leaves him as one of the top Fashion Inspirations.
