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

  • Impressive sleek design, with a glossy gradient finish at the back
  • Quite lightweight at 155 grams, and due to its compact size, it fits into the hand perfectly
  • Fast fingerprint scanner - apart from unlocking the phones, it also allows you to take photos, accept calls, browse through pictures, and dismiss alarms using gestures
  • Fast face unlock
  • Due to its glossy finish, the phone attracts lots of smudges at the back panel (though Infinix does thankfully ship a TPU case in the box)

Display

  • Modern, vibrant, 6.26-inch water-drop notch display, with good viewing angles
  • Sunlight legibility is especially good, unlike many other budget phones
  • Eye care mode allows for a comfortable reading experience at night

Software

  • Infinix's custom XOS UI has a decent set of additional features, including XClub (customer forum), XHide (to hide pictures, videos), Phone Master app (to free up RAM to boost performance), gesture support, and a smart panel to the left of the first home screen
  • You can also do plenty of UI customisations with the XTheme app
  • There is unfortunately plenty of bloatware too, as is often the case with such custom UIs

Performance

  • Decent performance in day-to-day use with a modest Helio P22 (similar to Snapdragon 625) at the core
  • There is plenty of competition though that packs better processors in this price bracket (especially from Xiaomi and Realme), and will give much smoother gaming performance - so if you are a power user, then the S4 might not be your best choice

Camera

  • Decent triple camera setup on the rear - 13MP primary camera + 8MP ultra-wide camera + 2MP depth camera - one of the rare phones to offer a triple camera setup in this price bracket
  • Daylight shots are above average with good clarity and overall colour reproduction - the phone also does an excellent job of capturing macro shots
  • Auto-focus is fast
  • The quality of the wide-angle camera is decent too, and it gives you interesting picture framing options, especially when shooting landscapes
  • Good 32MP front camera - takes clear and crisp selfies - and is pretty decent in indoor lighting as well
  • Both rear and front cameras also have a decent bokeh mode
  • Overall, this is one of the best camera setups in this price bracket
  • Low light performance of the rear cameras is average

Battery

  • Very good battery life with a large 4000mAh battery - you can expect a day and a half of use with moderate usage

Verdict

  • Overall, despite a modest processor, the phone is one of the better contenders in the entry-level budget segment - with 2 key USPs - a good battery life and a good camera setup - if you are a light smartphone user, and not into gaming, it's certainly worth considering - if however you are more of a power user, you should look at alternatives from Xiaomi and Realme

  1. The camera is where Infinix has really outdone themselves...If you’re after better performance though, you should look at the Redmi 7
