A few days back, InFocus launched its entry-level dual camera phone to be in competition. InFocus Turbo 5 Plus is the phone from the company to offer you dual camera experience in low cost. I tested this phone and found some interesting results. Read my review of InFocus Turbo 5 Plus to know about this phone.
InFocus Turbo 5 Plus comes with good design and solid build with metal finish. The phone got 4850 mAh battery, so it is heavy with 174 grams. This is the reason the phone is thick with 8.95 mm thickness. But its back has slightly curved at edges for making it easier to hold and offer better grip.

The phone has a physical home button below that display. It has a fingerprint scanner and can also be used for back on single tap and open multitasking on double press.
It has the volume rocker and power button on the right side. The left side has SIM card tray containing Hybrid dual SIM slots. The top side has 3.5mm audio port and the base side has micro USB and speaker. The back panel has dual camera setup with LED flash at top left corner. It also has InFocus branding on the back as well.
The build quality looks fine and design is good as well.
The phone has 5.5-inch IPS LCD panel with 720p resolution and 2.5D curved glass screen. This display offers nice color reproduction and wide viewing angles. Not just indoor, it is well even in outdoors. At this price, you cannot expect better than this.
The display also comes with Miravision to enhance the picture quality. You get display mode to tweak. There is also an Eyecare mode that reduces blue light to give you good experience in the night.
The phone runs on Android 7.0 Nougat. It comes with few pre-installed apps including Xploree Keyboard, Amazon and Amazon Video. It uses on-screen navigation keys along with the fingerprint button for navigation. The UI response is fine considering its price.
The phone comes with 1.5GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6750 processor with 3GB RAM. Considering the price, the setup is fine. It performs really well while doing day to day tasks and using social media apps. If you try to run too many heavy apps at the same time, you will surely feel bit lag but an entry-level phone is not meant for that.
Not just normal performance, this phone also handles gaming really well. I teAsphalthpalt, Modern combat, Dead Trigger life games and enjoyed gaming. The phone even manages to keep heating in control while gaming. And being true, I was not expecting this at all. So, you will surely enjoy this phone is you are a gamer.
You get 32GB of storage that can also be expanded up to 32 GB.
InFocus Turbo 5 Plus comes with 13 megapixels + 5 megapixels sensors at the back, with f/2.0 and f/2.2 aperture. The dual camera gives you decent quality pictures. It can also capture images with background blur which also gives average results. At the front, it has 5 megapixels camera the with f/2.4 aperture along with digital zoom.
The phone offers a fingerprint sensor to unlock the phone. It is also well in terms of accuracy but it takes bit longer time due to transition effect. This could be removed.
Multimedia experience is also fine. Loudspeaker works good and sound is also loud enough. The phone comes with dual-SIM connectivity with hybrid slots. It supports 4G with VoLTE. I tested with JIO SIM and it works fine. Other connectivity options are WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, micro USB and GPS.
The phone has a 4850 mAh battery that is really well in terms of performance. You get around 2 days of backup with normal usage and a full day usage with heavy usage. You also get intelligent power saving and battery saver mode to further enhance the battery.
This larger battery also takes a long time in fully charging. It takes over 3 hours in fully charging with the charger provided within the box.
The phone comes for less than Rs. 10,000 where you cannot expect big from a smartphone. InFocus Turbo 5 Plus brings the dual camera to the affordable segment with the aim to give better camera experience. Even if the camera of this phone doesn’t impress, the performance and battery of this phone surely impress. This phone’s display also gives you the good experience. The battery and performance are the key points of this phone. But the presence of a dual camera doesn’t add much value and it could be better.
I recommend this phone for its battery and performance, not so much for the camera. It is available exclusively on Amazon India.
