InFocus Turbo 5 Review

InFocus Turbo 5 Review

The InFocus Turbo 5 was recently launched in the sub-Rs. 10,000 smartphone segment, which has lately seen a lot of new models. Companies are fighting it out, trying to offer more for less, and Indian consumers are spoiled for choice. InFocus, the US-based company, made its debut in India almost two years ago and has mostly focused on the budget segment. Its latest smartphone is yet another low-cost device. At a starting price of Rs. 6,999, the new InFocus Turbo 5 will be competing against some very popular options like the Xiaomi Redmi 4, among others.

Under the hood, the new InFocus Turbo 5 packs a massive 5000mAh battery which is its biggest highlight, and it also lets you charge other devices. Is this enough to make the InFocus Turbo 5 worth your money and time? We find out in our review.

 

InFocus Turbo 5 design

The InFocus Turbo 5 differentiates itself from the rest of the budget smartphone crowd with the narrow borders to the sides of the screen. It looks good for a phone at this price, and there’s less distraction when watching videos. However, there are thick bezels above and below the display. Even with a 5.2-inch screen, this phone is comfortable to use with just one hand, which is what we did for most of our review period.

The standard capacitive navigation buttons are placed right below the screen, and they don’t light up which means that you could have trouble finding them in the dark. The InFocus Turbo 5 is available in Mocha Gold, which we received for our review, and Pure Gold.

There’s 2.5D curved glass on the front, and the rounded corners help with grip. Unfortunately, the back of the device mimics many phones that are already available in this segment. The antenna bands running across the top and bottom look very common now. InFocus has used faux metal on the back, and it definitely doesn’t feel solid compared to the body of the Xiaomi Redmi 4. There’s an InFocus logo in the middle at the back, with a fingerprint scanner above it.

At 8.95mm, the Turbo 5 is slightly thicker than the competition, though the 5000mAh battery beneath the hood makes up for that. The 164g weight isn’t too much either. The power and volume buttons are on the right while the 3.5mm audio socket and charging port are on the top and bottom respectively.

Overall, the InFocus Turbo 5 doesn’t offer a lot of new things in terms of design, but the narrow screen borders do help it score in terms of visual appeal.

InFocus Turbo 5 specifications and software

The InFocus Turbo 5 features a 5.2-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) display with 2.5D curved glass. The phone is powered by a quad-core MediaTek MT6737 processor clocked at 1.3GHz with integrated Mali T720 MP1 graphics. There will be two variants of the Turbo 5, one with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, and the other with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.

You get a large 5000mAh battery which the company promises will last for almost two days on a single charge. It’s also rated to deliver up to 34 days of standby time, 50 hours of continuous music playback, or 23 hours of video calling time. We’ll find out how the battery actually performs in the next section.

One useful feature that InFocus has implemented with the Turbo 5 is that it supports reverse charging, which means it can be used as a power bank to charge other devices.

There’s a 13-megapixel rear camera with an LED flash, and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. Both feature f/2.2 apertures. Connectivity options on the InFocus Turbo 5 include 4G with VoLTE, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth, GPS, and FM radio.
