InFocus launched the Vision 3 smartphone with the first 18: 9 display last year. After this we will be able to see the 18: 9 display of many companies in 2018, who have taken our attention. Vision 3 was a good phone but it was quite weak in its price. However, things changed and the handsets like Redmi 5, Redmi Note 5 and Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 knocked.
Infix La Vision 3 Pro to compete with all these, but is this phone made to match the existing smartphone in the market? We investigate …
InFocus Vision 3 Pro Design
InFocus Vision 3’s body is plastic but it seems to have been upgraded. There is a metal backplate in its back, which gives premium friction as soon as the phone is in its hands. Top and bottom are plastic cap for antenna. The front has a 5.7 inch display, in which the combination of colors is good and viewing angles are also good. The display is clearly visible in the sun. Color Temperature is the option to adjust. Also the display output can also be changed from standard to dynamic.
The buttons given in Vision 3 Pro are slightly higher, due to which the thumb has to be stretched considerably. In Vision 3 Pro, Infocus has given down the micro-USB port. Together there are two grills, out of which there is a loudspeaker in the left. The 3.55 millimeter headphone jack is at the top. The selfie camera is on one side. Notification is given next to LED earpiece.
There is a hybrid dual sim tray on the left side of the phone, in which 1 micro-slot is for the first SIM and the next for the next Nano slim. Memory card can be used in the second slot. The back of Vision 3 Pro has dual cameras and an LED flash. The fingerprint scanner is also given in the back.
18: 9 Aspect ratio makes the phone tall and slim, it makes it easy to capture the phone. It has rounded agencies and the phone is quite light. In the box, the user gets the Micro-USB cable, 7.5W charger, earphone. The quality of the accessories is not good and the headphones are not as good.
InFocus Vision 3 Pro Specifications and Features
The features given in the phone justify ‘Pro’ given in its title. The phone works in the MediaTek MT 6750 processor, while Vision 3 comes with MediaTek MT 6737H. The phone has an octa-core processor. The processor is new and it has been seen in Asus ZenFone 3S Max and Vivo V5s, which were launched last year. The phone has 4GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, which can be extended up to 128 GB. InFocus supports Vision 3 Pro 4G and VOLTE works in both of its SIMs.
In terms of software, the phone runs on Android 7.0 Nouga, which has been outdated since the arrival of Android Orio. Infocus added some customizations to its OS. It does not have an app drawer in it and all apps remain on the home screen. Bloatware is kept low, allowing users to enjoy Amazon Shopping, Prime Video, UC Browser, Mikey Keyboard. The relief is that all of them can also be uninstalled.
InFocus Vision 3 Pro Performance, Camera and Battery Life
The performance of Vision 3 Pro is much better than Vision 3. The processor is new and capable of giving superior excursion. Messages and common web browsing on social media are better with its help. However, due to the running of some app backgrounds, the phone is stuck, which is white despite the 4GB RAM. The Vision 3 Pro game is easy to support, but games like Shadow Fight 3 start getting stuck in it.
Battery life depends on your use. It is quick to run gaming, heavy apps. We found that the phone gets hot within 15 minutes of playing games. Vision 3 Pro lasted 12 hours and 8 minutes in our video loop test. It goes all day with common use. If you play games, it is difficult to walk the phone all day, you will need a charger for some time.
Dual camera setup is in the back of Vision 3 Pro. It is a sensor of 13 + 8 megapixels, which comes with wide angle lens. In addition to standard photo and video modes, time-laps, beauty, panorama, pro modes have been added. HDR is available but it takes some time. We expected a little quick response from this. Photos taken from primary sensors were good but Landscape shots showed lack of clarity. Secondary sensor allows wider frame to help the user with wide angle lens. There is also lack of detail here. The secondary sensor equipped with autofocus is slow compared to primary. There was some hindrance in taking portrait photographs. Its edge detection needs improvement. Macro shots are better. They understood the differences between the subject and the background.
Camera performance is not good in low light. Vision 3 Pro controls the knees but the details are reduced. Video recording goes up to 1080 pixels, it supports both cameras. But the Redmi Note 5 allows video recording of 4 in this list. There is no feature of stabilization, which will keep the hand steady. The 13-megapixel selfie camera takes good pictures. Beauty modes are activated automatically. Zoom in can lose the details of selfies, but still there are photos worth sharing on social media
InFocus Vision 3 Pro is the upgrade to Vision 3, which has a strong processor, has got more RAM. However, the competition has increased by the Redmi 5 and the Redmi Note 5. The newly launched Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 also challenges Vision 3 Pro for Rs 10,999. If you are looking for a budget smartphone in the market, then Vision 3 Pro can move to ZenFone Max Pro M1.
