2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 6 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Decent fingerprint sensor at the back - unlocking the phone is convenient and smooth
  • The bezels on the top and bottom are on the larger side compared to other 18:9 display phones - taking away some of the compact size advantage of such phones
  • The glossy body finish attracts too many smudges and scratches

Display

  • Looks smart and sporty, with an infinity edge display - putting it in a unique position among budget phones
  • The 18:9 Infinity Edge display looks good (the screen has good brightness, wide viewing angles and rich colours), and gives a good experience while watching videos, or browsing

Performance

  • Average performance — the interface tends to be sluggish at times (things improve a little bit with a 3rd party launcher)

Camera

  • Decent dual-rear-camera set-up on the back - amongst the better dual cameras you would see on budget offerings - takes good pictures especially in good lighting conditions- and has a decent bokeh mode
  • Which the rear cameras are pretty decent, there is a 1 second shutter lag in the camera which often leads to blurry images
  • Average front camera - apart from the same issue of shutter lag, it suffers from soft details and under-saturated colours

Audio

  • Loud audio output via speaker

Battery

  • Decent battery life - the 3000mAh non-removable battery lasts the work day
  • Battery life is decent but given the mAH rating should have been better
  • No fast charging support

More

  • Weighing 165 g, the smartphone is slightly on the heavier side
  • On the whole, if you are looking for a smartphone with 18:9 aspect display on a budget, the iVoomi i1s is a pretty decent option, but it is a bit behind the InFocus Vision 3, its primary competitor, on some important things — screen & build quality, battery life and performance - and if you don't care much for an infinity display, then the likes of Redmi 5A or the 10.or D are much better value for money
