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 looking, premium design, with a glossy mirror finish on the back panel
  • Lightweight
  • Fits comfortably in the hand
  • Decent, fast rear fingerprint sensor
  • The back panel is prone to smudges (though thankfully, the company has given a bundled protective case)

Display

  • Good, modern, water-drop notch, 6.21-inch display - it offers some good colour reproduction and viewing angles

Software

  • XOS UI is pretty decent, works smoothly, and comes loaded with some interesting features
  • There is plenty of pre-installed bloatware though, a problem that plagues a lot of such custom UIs

Performance

  • Decent day-to-day performance with a Helio A22 at the core (similar to Snapdragon 615) processor - light users will be happy (though power users will want to look elsewhere)
  • Multi-tasking performance is limited though because of the limited 2GB of RAM - again, the device is only meant for light users

Camera

  • Triple camera setup at the rear, which is a rarity for this price segment - includes a primary camera + depth sensor + low-light sensor
  • Decent daylight performance from the rear camera set, with good detailing
  • Macro shots are pretty good too
  • Decent selfie camera too - the selfies look natural and have a decent amount of detail with punchy colours
  • For this price point, this is one of the better camera phones
  • Both the rear and front cameras have significant shutter lag though, so if you don't keep a steady hand, you can sometimes end up with blurry photos
  • Low light performance of the rear camera is only average (even with the low-light sensor)

Battery

  • Good battery life with a 3500mAh battery - you will comfortably get a day of use
  • Decent charging speed - the phone can be charged from 0 to 100 per cent in about 1 hour and 30 minutes

Verdict

  • Overall, the Infinix Smart 3 is an attractive choice for this price bracket, if you are fine with just-about-ok performance, and want to instead prioritise the camera
  • If you do care more about performance more, look at options from Xiaomi or Realme instead
