Infocus Vision 3 Review: Budget Smartphone offering 18:9 Display, 4000 mAh battery

Infocus recently launched its first bezel-less smartphone – the Vision 3 smartphone in India with the bezel-less display which is Priced at Rs 6,999. The device is exclusively available on Amazon for purchase.

The Infocus Vision 3 is the cheapest smartphone to come with a 5.7-inch HD+ (18:9) aspect screen and 4000 mAh battery which are its key features. Performance wise, the phone is good for normal use but you cannot rely on it for your gaming.

Lets quickly check out what this budget Smartphone offers to its consumers :

Infocus Vision 3 Build and Design

Like every budget to mid-range smartphone, this phone comes with the metal-like finish on the plastic design. I found the build quality good keeping its price in mind. On the front, it holds an 18:9 HD+ Display along with earpiece, few sensors and notification LED.Notification LED is so blended in design that you won’t notice it until it blinks.

The sides and rounded corners give pretty good grip. The fingerprint sensor is provided on the back which is easily accessible. Dual Camera set up is little raised from the back and the volume rockers are on the left. Speaker grills are at the bottom back which is not appreciated these days, especially when you are watching a video resting your phone on the table or palm. Power key and Hybrid sim slot are on the right side of the device. Overall, the build and design quality is nice.

Infocus Vision 3 Performance

Infocus Vision 3 comes with 1.30GHz MediaTek MT6735 quad-core processor along with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. Lack of storage space is definitely a problem for users who may want to install as many apps on this device. Infocus Vision 3 comes with a hybrid sim slot, so you can expand the storage at the cost of using just 1 Sim.

As stated earlier, the phone works smoothly in the day to day operations but lags when you play games in high-quality mode. Well, this is the case with almost all the quad-core devices out there. I tried playing Asphalt 8 which is the norm for me to try on every device ( 😀 ) and clearly there were frame drops high-quality mode. The game was pretty smooth in low quality mode, while in medium quality, it just worked fine with few frame drops.

Infocus Vision 3 Display

Infocus Vision 3 comes with 5.7 inch HD+ Display which has never been provided ever by any company in the budget segment devices. Even though the device carries bigger display, the resolution is less than that of its competitors. Sunlight legibility of this device is less, colours seem to be washed out. Again, considering the price, you cannot demand much.

Infocus Vision 3 Camera

It comes with dual rear camera setup which is a combination of a 13-megapixel sensor and a 5-megapixel sensor, while for the front, there is an 8-megapixel camera making it a camera-centric smartphone. In the camera app, you get a portrait mode and a wide angle mode. The dual cameras do not work like a dual camera should meaning you should not expect the bokeh you usually get from dual cameras.

InFocus Vision 3 Back

For portrait mode from the rear camera, the subject should be near, and also, it needs a Human face to work out with bokeh effect. The images from the rear camera are pretty average in low light while crisp and clear in the natural light. Rear Camera though does not understand which subject to keep in focus and ends up blurring the picture here and there in an attempt to create the bokeh effect. This is something I would like to get fixed by their software updates.

On the other hand, the front camera works like charm and gives problem occasionally when trying to click selfies with bokeh effect. You can click photos in 4:3 aspect or full mode which will let you cover your complete screen with the image. Other features include Dualfie (PIP in the Camera app) which is similar to Nokia’s Bothie, 1080p Video Recordings, Time-lapse, video, photo, beauty, panorama and portrait.

Infocus Vision 3 Battery and Connectivity

The Infocus Vision 3 comes with a huge 4000 mAh battery, which easily powers the device throughout the day on a single charge under normal usage. If you don’t use the device much and keep it for calling and WhatsApp, this could last an average of one and half days. However, charging is quite slow. The device takes around three to four hours to charge from zero to 100 percent.

From the connectivity perspective, it supports 4G LTE, Bluetooth, WiFi, micro-USB port and all the basic connectivity functions. The options are pretty much standard these days. As for the sensors are concerned, it comes with proximity, light, accelerometer and light sensors.

Verdict

You can buy this handset if your budget is low and want to experience large 18:9 screen, better battery life. Rear Camera is average, but the front is good for selfies.
