2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 5 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Good looks
  • With a glossy plastic back panel coated with 10 layers of nano chrome particles and a modern, tall display, Infinix Note 5 feels premium and good to hold, and is easily one of the best built phone in this price bracket
  • The phone does not have antenna lines at the back, and with the subtle Android One and Infinix branding, it adds a neat look to the rear panel
  • The shiny back panel easily attracts fingerprints, smudges and scratches
  • The fingerprint sensor on the phone is a bit on the slow side

Display

  • Bright display, with vivid colours, in the new 18:9 aspect ratio - it renders good colour reproduction with wide viewing angles
  • The display on the phone, while pretty nice, is also reflective and therefore outdoor visibility is average

Software

  • The USP of the phone of course is that it's part of the Android One series, which means you get simple stock Android, and a guarantee of updates for 2 years

Performance

  • Good day-to-day performance, with a mid-tier MediaTek Helio P23 (similar to Snapdragon 625) - everything, except very heavy games, will run smoothly

Camera

  • Decent set of rear and front cameras, especially in daylight
  • Both cameras also have a software based portrait/bokeh mode, that works reasonably well, as well as scene-recognition AI features
  • While the cameras are pretty decent in well-lit conditions, they are average in low light

Battery

  • Extra long battery life, with a solid 4500mah battery - with moderate use, the phone will comfortably lasts for one and a half days
  • Fast charging support

More

  • On the whole, the Infinix Note 5 is a worthy option in the budget segment, and can compete well against the likes of the Redmi Note 5 (which is slightly ahead on software customisability and overall build quality, but slightly behind on software simplicity and battery backup)
