US-based InFocus which has been primarily known for DLP and LCD projectors, large-format touch displays and tablets in home market has recently launched InFocus Turbo 5 in India. The newly launched device has a decent mix of design, software, and hardware but the differentiating feature of the smartphone is its long battery life, thanks to a 5000mAh battery. Priced at Rs 6,999, InFocus Turbo 5 offers sharp display, decent camera quality and solid battery life. Will Turbo 5 be able to win over existing low cost heavy-weights? To know, let us look into the device.
Out of the box, the first thing you will notice is its premium design. The metallic finish in rear and sides further add elegance to the overall design. The front of the device is dominated by a 5.2-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1280 pixels by 720 pixels. In usage, the display quality of Turbo 5 is fairly satisfactory with sharp and crisp resolution. You can also read in direct sunlight without much difficulty. Power and volume rocker keys are placed on the right edge while the left has space for dual SIM card slot. A 3.5 mm headset jack is placed on the top edge while the bottom is dedicated for Micro-USB port and a speaker grille. Speaker grilles have some issue as we faced serious difficulty in maintaining call quality. One has to either put a hand or keep the bottom of the device close to the lips for a call, else the person at the end may not hear anything at all. We noticed this problem with the M680 also that we reviewed last year.
InFocus Turbo 5 runs on Android 7.0 and is powered by 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6737 processor and 2GB RAM. During the review period, the phone worked without any major hiccup. InFocus Turbo 5 comes with a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front camera. Both the cameras are decent and take pictures with good quality and fine details in regular light. However, the images were a little dull and less vibrant in low light conditions. Camera app is fully customisable.
Overall, InFocus Turbo 5 is a decent affordable smartphone with attracting design, sharp display, good camera quality and long battery life.
