InFocus is a Foxconn owned smartphone brand which usually offers budget segment smartphones with good specs in the market. There is always something new in every smartphone that InFocus releases, and it has done the same with the newly released Infocus Vision 3. It has an 18:9 aspect ratio display, dual rear camera setup and 4000 mAh huge battery, and the unexpected price of just Rs. 6,999. It is available to buy online exclusively from Amazon.in.
I have unboxed a lot of smartphones lately, and they all were packed in the same way, and so does the InFocus Vision 3. The box contents are; the InFocus Vision 3 smartphone, some documents, SIM card ejection tool, charging brick and the USB cable.
Comparing the design and look of the InFocus Vision 3 to some previous InFocus smartphones shows us a lot of improvement with the build quality. InFocus has adapted a lot of new things and added it to this smartphone like the thin bezels, dual camera setup and matte black finish all over.
The InFocus Vision 3 has a very lovely and simple design, there is nothing in the design which makes it stand out of most of the smartphones, but it really feels useful in hands. The only thing which bugs me in the plan is that the power button is a bit higher than it should be, it might be because the volume rocker is on the other side of the phone.
The front of the phone is mostly the display only with all the necessary sensors and the front-facing camera at the top. The back of the phone has a dual camera setup with flash, the fingerprint sensor, the antenna bands and the loudspeaker. The right side has the power button, and SIM card tray slot, left side has the volume rocker, bottom side has the micro USB port, and the top has the 3.5 mm audio port.
The InFocus Vision 3 comes with a 5.7 inches HD+ (1440×720) display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. There are very thin bezels around the screen, and the cover glass has a 2.5D curvature which blends in perfectly with the edges. The screen to body ratio of this smartphone is approximately 82%; this is the most affordable smartphone which comes with the full vision display.
As the performance of the display is concerned, it is as basic as you can find on any other budget smartphone. The screen has a slightly better color contrast and viewing angles than some budget smartphones in similar price category which is good. The brightness is also right in the sunlight, the text on display is readable.
Watching videos on this display is a great experience too because of the minimal bezel design. And because of the 18:9 aspect ratio display, the videos fills entirely on the screen without cropping off any vital detail in the video. Overall I am pleased with the display of this smartphone and a bit shocked to see all this at a very affordable price.
InFocus Vision 3 smartphone comes with a 13MP + 5MP dual camera setup for primary photography. At the front is an 8MP shooter with a beautification mode to get better selfies. The camera specifications seem promising at such a low price, but can the performance impress us, let’s find out.
The 13MP lens clicks in RGB and the other 5MP capture picture in monochrome, then the smartphone merges both pictures to create richer colors in images. This dual camera setup also adds a depth effect in pictures using the Portrait mode. The camera is also capable of shooting 1080p FHD videos at 30 frames per second.
While testing, the pictures clicked with InFocus Vision 3 comes out bright and have a very deep color contrast. The pictures lack in detail and pictures start to pixelate while zooming in a little. Take a look at the samples and decide for yourself. Overall whatever the camera delivers is the best you can get at this price range.
For performance, the InFocus Vision 3 comes with a MediaTek MT6735 processor with four cores running at the 1.3GHz clock frequency. Along with the processor, it comes with Mali-T720 GPU and 2GB RAM for multitasking and gaming purposes. The internal storage is 16GB, out of which only 10GB is free for users, it also supports microSD card for storage expansion.
Now, I haven’t expected much from a Rs. 6,999 smartphone but after using the smartphone for a while, I am a little bit shocked because the performance is super smooth. The games are taking a long time while loading, but after loading done, the gameplay is buttery smooth. The multitasking is also a great deal on a smartphone but InFocus Vision 3 seems to fail at this test as well.
InFocus improved one more thing on Vision 3 smartphone; the UI. It comes with Android 7.0 Nougat with SmileUX. SmileUX is a layered UI from InFocus which feels mostly stock and works smooth. There is no stutter or glitch in the user interface, InFocus has optimized this user interface to make a perfect balance of performance and battery.
- Full View display
- Great camera performance
- Huge battery
- The loudspeaker is at the back of the phone
The InFocus Vision 3 is the only smartphone in the market which comes with the Full View display at such low price. And there is no compromisation has been done from the company’s side by looking at the price tag. The camera is just average, the performance is acceptable, and the battery is massive. This smartphone is a full package at the price of Rs. 6,999.
