2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 12+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Looks good with a 'metal-finish on plastic' design that has become quite common on low to mid range phones recently
  • The rounded corners and edges give a good sense of grip
  • Decent fingerprint sensor
  • Some design decisions are odd - first, it places the volume buttons on the left - and it takes a little time to get used to the new placement - additionally, the speaker grille on the bottom at the back of the phone definitely feels a bit weird, especially if you’re watching a video while the phone is resting on your palm or on a table - overall, the Vision 3 does attempt to bring a level of finesse into entry-level phones but falls short on the details

Display

  • Minimal bezel, 18:9 display in this price range is quite an achievement, and adds to the trendy looks
  • Average display quality - while the 18:9 display on the phone at this price point is exceptional, the actual quality of the display leaves a lot to be desired - it is low resolution, has low viewing angles and barely average sunlight visibility - colours on the Vision 3 also are a bit washed out

Performance

  • Average performance - the Mediatek processor is only good for basic use and the lower performance does become noticeable once you have more than five apps or about 20 Chrome tabs open - if you push the phone, the phone will tend to get warm and crash

Camera

  • Average camera - again while a dual camera setup in this price bracket is a rarity, the actual implementation leaves a lot to be desired - there is lack of detail around the edges, the colours are a bit washed out, and while both the front and the back cameras support portrait mode, the results are not really up to the mark with edges repeatedly being blurred over even when the face is clearly in view - there is also above-average noise in night time shots - overall, the Vision 3 is a pretty average camera phone at this price point, despite its dual camera arrangement

Battery

  • Decent battery life - will last the work day
  • The battery too, while decent, performs below what you would expect out of a 4000 mAh phone - with average use, it just about lasts the work day
  • Slow charging speed

More

  • The phone ships only with a 16GB storage variant, which if you tend to install a lot of apps, will become a limiting factor (it also has a hybrid sim slot, which means you can either use dual sims or the memory card, but not both together)
  • On the whole, InFocus seems to have taken a checklist-like approach in building an entry-level phone - including as many high and mid-range features as possible without focussing on the actual performance quality - if you are looking for something that actually performs well, there are better phones out there (having said that the dual camera setup, and the minimal bezel display, are two features you would be hard pressed to find otherwise in the price bracket)
