2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 7 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Beautiful, striking design - a style statement with a hint of premium and a paint job envisioned to impress - one of the best looking phones at this price
  • The front looks equally stunning with the all screen design with no notch or anything, thanks to the pop-up selfie camera (for the first time in this price bracket)
  • Fingerprint sensor is decent and there's also face unlock that works well
  • Slightly broader and hence makes one-hand use a bit tiresome

Display

  • Vibrant, punchy and large 6.53" IPS LCD screen of FullHD+ resolution - the panel has no cutouts, which makes for a more immersive experience when watching movies or playing games
  • The display isn't that bright and could be a problem for outdoor use

Software

  • Software experience on the S5 Pro is decent, it comes with XOS 6 based on Android 10 - there are a ton of useful settings such as battery saving options, themes, smart panel, social turbo, gestures, and what not
  • The interface is heavily skinned and full of bloatware that sends spammy notifications

Performance

  • Average performance with the old MediaTek Helio P35 - the phone lags when you do a lot of multitasking like opening multiple Chrome windows, switching in between them and the games smoothly is a no go

Camera

  • Good triple camera for the price - 48MP primary lens, 2MP depth sensor, and a dedicated Low light sensor of 0.3MP
  • The daylight photos turns out pretty good with a decent amount of resolved detail, low noise, and accurate colours, the contrast is very good, as is the dynamic range
  • The low-light photos with the Infinix S5 Pro turn out great for this class, well exposed, with good colour saturation, and the detail is quite enough
  • The portrait photos are also good with proficient subject separation and convincing enough blur
  • The 16MP selfie camera is just average - the detail is poor, there is noticeable red tinge and the dynamic range is rather low - the selfie portrait also doesn't work well
  • Video quality is also average, it lacks any stabilisation and the quality is just okay

Battery

  • Good battery life with the 4000 mAh cell - will easily last a day of use with medium to heavy use
  • No Fast Charging

Verdict

  • Infinix S5 Pro is a beautiful-looking smartphone and if you're in the market for a pop-up selfie camera, nice, large display and good cameras, it makes for a decent choice
  • However, if you consider the performance, it feels like an underdog when compared to the likes of Realme 5, Samsung Galaxy M30 and Redmi Note 8
