The smartphone market is quite prosperous in the budget segment. There are many smartphones available under the price of Rs 10,000, which have been introduced with many better and more powerful features. One of them is Infinix S5, which costs only Rs 8,999. Today we are going to tell you about the Infinix S5 review in this article. If you liked this article, then you must comment about it.
Talking about the main features of the phone, it comes with 4000 mAh battery and features like Android 9 Pie. However, it is not at all the case that if the price of the phone is low then it can be purchased. It is very important to know about the phone before purchasing it. Due to this, we have brought a review of Infinix S5 for you, so that you will be able to know the specifics of this smartphone and decide whether to buy the phone or not.
Display and Design
First of all let’s talk about the design of the phone. The company has paid a lot of attention to the built quality of the phone. The body of the phone is plastic but the company has given a glossy look on the back panel of the phone. However, due to being glossy, fingerprints will easily print on the back panel of the phone. In design it does not look like an ordinary smartphone. Nowadays the way big screen smartphones are being introduced, similarly the big screen Infinix S5 has also been launched in the market. It is a bit difficult to use the phone with one hand. At the same time, the phone is quite slippery. In such a situation, we would advise you not to use the phone without a cover.
The Infinix S5 is one of the few budget smartphones that comes with a punch-hole display at a low price. The design of the punch-hole given on the screen will not destroy you at all. Its bezels are quite thin which will give you a better experience. There are volume and power buttons on the right side of the phone. At the same time, there is a SIM tray on the left side, in which two nano SIMs and a microSD card can be fitted.
Now let’s talk about the display. The phone has a 6.55-inch Infinity-O HD + display. We will not give its display a full number because when viewing the screen from an average distance you will see the text fine but it is a bit difficult to get a better experience while watching the video. This is because there is a lack of sharpness in watching videos on the phone. When using the phone in more light, we had to adjust the brightness repeatedly.
Hardware and software
The performance of hardware and software in any smartphone is a symbol of its performance. Talking about Infinix S5, the entry level MediaTek Helio P22 processor is present in the phone. It is not as powerful as the Snapdragon 665 or the Helio P70. We have compared the Helio P22 with both these processors as the phones with these processors have been launched at the same price as the Infinix S5. In such a situation, the company could do a better job in terms of processors. The phones were quite smooth during multitasking. We did not feel any difficulty in moving from one app to another. At the same time, if talking about gaming experience, the phone is neither too hot nor hung while playing the game present in the phone. If you want to play heavy games on the phone, you can play by setting its graphics in low quality. When we watch the video on YouTube, it shows a maximum of 720 pixels. If you watch the video at a higher resolution than this, you will see a decrease in the sharpness of the video.
This phone has been launched in only one variant. It comes with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage. If seen, this RAM and storage with this processor can be called a perfect match. As we told you, there is no problem of multitasking in the phone. In this case, this phone with 4 GB RAM is working fine in this case. At the same time, 64 GB storage is also enough for users. If they are more used, they can use microSD cards up to 256 GB. Talking about fingerprint sensor, it was quick. This sensor takes very less time to unlock the phone. Apart from this, Face Unlock feature is also available for security. This feature also responds very quickly.
Now come to the software. This phone works on XOS Cheetah based on Android 9 Pie. The phone’s software can be called the main feature of the phone. The quick notifications and settings in it provide a great experience. However, some customizations have also been made in the phone, which were not needed. For example: Palm Store and AHA games are given to deliver curated games and apps. They also cannot be uninstalled. Their notifications also bother them as there is no need for them. However, XOS also allows you to hide notch, making it easier to use apps.
Camera and Battery
The Infinix S5 has been introduced with a quad rear camera. Its primary sensor is 16 megapixels, which has an aperture f / 1.8. It comes with PDAF feature. The second is a 5-megapixel ultra wide angle camera. It is used for close-up shots. At the same time, the third is a 2 megapixel depth sensor, which is used in portrait mode. Apart from this, there is a fourth low-light sensor. This camera includes PDAF, Quad LED Flash, Auto Scene Detection, AR Animoji. It also has modes like Custom Bokeh, AI HDR, AI Beauty and Panama. Speaking of video recording, it shoots at 30 pixels at 1080 pixels. These phone features, now talk about its camera performance.
Despite being a PDAF, it often takes some time to focus on the photo. Photos are well captured in high light but close up shots will give you a better look. However, it is difficult to give details in them. In low light, the quality of the photo will not get you up to the mark. In the camera segment, the phone did not give us better performance. The company could have made this segment even better. You can also take photos in super macro mode, however, you will get the same quality as normal photos. Due to the wide aperture, you can take a good photo with the primary sensor. Pixels can burst when zooming the photo. It is not good to detect pictures even in night mode.
Talking about the selfie camera, it has a 32 megapixel HDR + AI dynamic sensor. The quality of the phone is good in the selfie segment. You will not be disappointed in this. However, on so many pixels, the size of the photo becomes quite large. In such a situation, you can manually reduce its resolution.
The Infinix S5 has a 4000 mAh battery. In this segment we can give it whole numbers but only for average usage. On average usage, its battery can last 1 to 1.5 days. When charging the phone with its original charger, it charges fast. If seen, the phone is charged with its original charger but some users charge the phone by putting a charger in any phone. In such a situation, we advise them to charge the phone only with the original charger so that the battery life of the phone can be prolonged. If you watch videos or browse the phone continuously, you may have to charge the phone twice a day.
According to us, the features of the phone are not such that it can attract users, only punch-hole display. From the battery life of the phone to the hardware performance, the phone can be called average. In such a situation, if you want to see the options of this phone too, then Realme 5 and Redmi Note 8 are also present in the market. Their performance and features are better than Infinix S5. However, the final decision is your decision about which phone is better for you.
