Infocus Vision 3 Pro Impressions
Infocus launched its Vision 3 smartphone back in December last year. I also reviewed the phone and you can read the review of Infocus Vision 3 if you missed that. Today, the company has upgraded the Vision 3 and launched Infocus Vision 3 Pro in India.
This phone comes with better specs and few more features. I have now started using this phone and review will come soon. Before that, I want to share the first impressions of Infocus Vision 3 Pro.
Note: I received this review unit from Infocus and I had no idea of price at the time of writing this article.
Design of Infocus Vision 3 Pro is almost same as we saw in Infocus Vision 3. The only change is the position of speaker. Now it is placed at the base side while it was on rear panel in Vision 3. The volume rocker and power button are at the right edge while SIM card slot is on the left edge. Top edge houses headphone jack while the base edge houses micro USB and speaker vents. The rear panel has a dual camera with LED flash at top left and fingerprint sensor is located at top center.
The phone has curved at edges for offering good grip. I must confess that phone is slippery and you require a back cover for adding a protection. The phone looks good and offers premium feel in budget segment.
The 5.7-inch display comes with HD+ resolution offering 281 PPI pixel density. The display looks fine with good viewing angles. It has good brightness and nice color reproduction. It even works fine for outdoors.
The phone packs 1.5Ghz octa-core MediaTek MT6750T processor with 4GB RAM. The selection of chipset could have been better because I assume that the phone will be priced around Rs. 10000. I wouldn’t recommend a 28nm Fabrication in 2018 for this price. We already have Snapdragon 450 or 625 based on 14nm FinFET Fabrication for a lower-midrange segment. In past 20 hours of my usage, I didn’t find any issue with performance but I am not sure about long run. 4GB RAM is good enough for offering better multitasking. Mali-T860 MP2 GPU is there to handle graphics requirements. I will talk about the performance in review of Vision 3 Pro. Stay tuned for all upcoming updates.
The phone comes with 64GB of storage with option to expand storage but the phone comes with hybrid slot.
It runs on Android 7.0 Nougat with a custom UI at the top. The phone comes with few bloatware including UC Browser, UC News, Amazon and Prime video. The UI comes with few notable features like ScreenRecorder, Smart RoboS, Sboost and more. It uses on-screen navigation keys that can also be customized.
The phone comes with a fingerprint sensor that works fine and unlocks phone fast. It also supports face unlock. It works with accuracy but sometimes it takes time in unlocking. Well, expecting a fast face unlock from a budget phone is also not a wise thing.
The phone comes with a dual rear camera on the back. This setup includes a 13 megapixels primary sensor and 8 megapixels secondary sensor. Here, the secondary sensor is for wide angle shot and capturing portrait shots. The phone also comes with 13 megapixels front camera with display flash option for low-light. I didn’t test the camera much but I captured few shots that were good enough.
It supports 4G VoLTE, WiFi, Bluetooth, micro USB and GPS connectivity. The phone packs large 4000 mAh battery. The battery is large and I hope good backup as I found good battery backup in Vision 3. The chipset used in the phone supports Mediatek’s PumpExpress 2.0 fast charging but the company didn’t offer fast charging adapter. I will surely test it with better adapter to check if it supports fast charging.
The phone looks good in terms of design and specs with only disappointment in the selection of processor. Without testing properly, I do not want to comment on performance. So, you need to wait few more days to know if this phone is worth to buy. Pricing will play an important role.
