infinix s5 review, Price, design, Games test, performance and battery life

infinix s5 Pro is another affordable smartphone aimed at the highly volatile Indian market. It does little to begin with a triple camera.
infinix s5 impresses not only with its stunning look, but also with a 10803 resolution with a 6.53 “IPS LCD screen with no cutouts.

The design

infinix s5 Pro may be a cheaper smartphone, but its design stands in sharp contrast. A fashion statement that hints at a premium and a paint job that is thought to impress. Whether it is One Green (Our) or Violet Flowers, the S5 Pro is easy to identify and like.

But like any modern smartphone, the infinix S5 Pro has a traditional build. The front is a flat piece of glass protected, here is a plastic frame with a glossy finish, and the back may look like glass, but it is actually with a couple of layers of plastic.

The screen below the 6.53 “mark is probably the first one someone has seen and is great. Apart from the bottom, it’s very thin, the corners are well rounded, and the colors look very orange and fancier, so the fact This is the error that can be made for the first OLED panel.

This means that we have to manually adjust where and when to use this phone, which is not something that one needs to do in 2019. The camera hole itself is not too annoying, and the display has a relatively limited thin bezel around the chin.

The body is made entirely of plastic and has a shiny finish at the back, a huge magnet for fingerprints. We’ve got the Quetzal Cyan version, but it’s also available on infinix s5 Violet and the Nebula Black Tram. The back has a “feather” pattern, which looks good and gives the impression of holding the glass back. The rear fingerprint sensor has a different texture from the rest of the body and is easy to access. We also like that the camera module is not very comprehensive.

Space for sim card

There is a place on the left side of infinix s5 where you will find a tray for two Nano SIM cards and a separate tray for MicroSD card (up to 256 GB). The power and volume buttons are placed in opposite directions, and the ergonomics and tactile feedback are good. Below, we have a headphone socket, speakers and a micro USB port.

infinix s5 performance and battery life

infinix s5 is a long phone and it is not easy to manage in one hand. That said, it doesn’t look too heavy at 178 grams and is quite thin at just 7.9 millimeters. The glossy finish makes it a bit slippery at times.

For general use, we got the infinix s5 to perform well. The custom UI worked smoothly and we were able to perform many multi-tasks without being caught by the phone. However, some apps were slightly slower, such as Google Maps. The SOC is not the most powerful, and is reflected in the benchmark score. In N-Tattoo 8, we got 92,126 points, while the T-Rex test came back to just 26 fps in the GFX bench.

Games test

Simple games work well, but heavy titles struggle to fit their ideal graphics setting. We also test this mobile with mini joy apk and this work perfectly but  Call of Duty Mobile pre-set ‘Low’ graphics, which made it playable but without visual clutter. Unfortunately, the videos did not look so good. YouTube videos played at maximum supported resolution (720p) had a sharp drop and often had a slightly brighter display around the edges of moving objects. The speaker below sounded a little light but it rang loudly. When we placed the phone horizontally, it was easy to hold the speaker with your palms.

There was a rush to verify the fingerprint sensor and unlock the phone. There is also facial recognition, as long as there was enough light in the room it was decent skin. This supports app type of game store or play store.

battery life

In our HD video loop test, the 4000 mAh battery did not work particularly well and infinix s5 only lasted for 13 hours and 24 minutes. However, the actual usage was much better. We typically worked for one-and-a-half hours, which included making calls, playing games, and using cameras. Charging was also not fast. Using the bundled adapter, we managed to get this phone up to 39% in just one hour. It took more than three hours to fully charge the phone. When Redmi 8 (review) offered a budget phone, fast charging would have really helped and it’s a shame that infinix s5 lacks this feature.

infinix s5 camera

At the back, infinix s5 has a 16-megapixel camera with f / 1.8 aperture and PDF. Next, we have a 5 megapixel ultra wide angle camera, which is also used for ultra close-up photographs. The L2 2-megapixel depth sensor used in portrait mode is available, and Infinix says the fourth is a low-light sensor, but has not revealed its resolution. We are not sure what effect this final sensor has, as blocking it with a finger does not affect the final product.

Even with the PDAF, the main camera sometimes took some time to focus despite good lighting. HDR processing was not great, and most of the pictures we took were proportionless in dark or light areas. The dynamic range was also weak. The close-ups performed better with a sharp edge and slightly better colors. You can switch to SuperMacro mode by tapping the toggle in the viewfinder, which converts to a wide-angle camera. Here, we were able to get closer to the subjects, but the descriptions were fairly average.

Last word

infinix s5 is one of the few rupees 10,000 inr and 23,999 in pkr, and so on as a hole punch display game. However, the rest of its features and capabilities don’t really add up to a great experience, and in this regard, we think phones like Realme 5 (review) and Redmi Note 8 (review) offer better prices.
