InFocus Turbo 5 Review: The Smartphone Powerbank

HOW DOES IT FEEL OUT OF THE BOX?

At the first look, the InFocus Turbo 5 has a narrow side bezel. When the phone is turned off it seems that there aren’t any bezels on the side. This makes the device look more premium and less distracting while watching any content. However, we felt that the bezels on the top and bottom are extremely thick. The power and the volume buttons are located on the right side. The 3.5mm audio jack is located at the top and the micro USB charging jack at the bottom. It comes with a built-in 5.2-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1280×720 pixels. The phone measures at 8.95mm and weighs 164 grams which are bit heavier compared to Redmi Note 4A. For added security, InFocus included fingerprint scanner at the back is pretty responsive. The main highlight of the device is a huge 5000mAh battery. You can stay without charges for more than two days. No need of powerbank and charger.

HOW DOES IT PERFORM?

The device is packed with MediaTek MT6737 processor with a combination of 2GB RAM and Mali T720MP2 graphics chip. Daily usage like browsing, watching videos and other less demanding operations performs fairly well. According to storage, 16GB of ROM can be expanded with microSD memory cards, so that you can store millions of pictures and dozens of videos on your phone.

I was impressed with the battery performance from the 5000 mAh battery that gave more than two days of usage before it ran out of juice, and there is fast charging support as well. Turbo 5 can give up to 34 days of standby which is impressive. InFocus packed its own customized Android 7.0 Nougat OS. The UI design is minimalistic and very simple to navigate. The InFocus Turbo 5 also comes with a fingerprint sensor to make your phone safe from unauthorized access. The fingerprint sensor unlocks the device at a lightning fast speed compared to other smartphones in the same range. The phone comes in a Mocha Gold which gives the smartphone a premium look.

Talking about the connectivity, Turbo 5 is a dual SIM (GSM & GSM) smartphone that accepts Nano-SIM on both slots. It also comes with Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, FM, 3G and 4G.

HOW IS THE CAMERA?

Well, it got a 13-megapixel camera on a rear, that will provide with decent quality pictures. The Intex camera application comes bundled with the device and offers basic as well as manual mode. Through manual mode, you can control the aperture, exposure, ISO and white balance. You can also use Auto mode in which it captures well-detailed shots. Talking about the front camera, Turbo 5 comes with an 8-megapixel front facing camera that takes decent selfies which are expected from a low-end smartphone.

VERDICT

The Infocus Turbo 5 is definitely one of the best low-budget powerful smartphones which are packed with a massive 5000mAh battery. In terms of screen and camera output, it does not match up with Redmi 4A. Even if you ignore the screen the camera is still pretty much disappointing. Moreover, the phone looks good and feels sturdy. But spec and performance wise, we have no doubts in recommending the Infocus Turbo 5.
