Infocus Vision 3 Review

The smartphone sports a 5.7-inch HD+ Full Vision display, with resolution of 1440x720 pixels and an aspect ratio of 18:9. It has a body to screen ratio of 82.4% and the screen has 2.5 D curved glass.


InFocus Mobile launched its Vision 3 “dualfie” smartphone in the Indian market, to tap into the millennial’s increasing fascination with taking pictures and selfies.

With the camera undoubtedly becoming one of the most important components in a phone, the US-based technology company launched Vision 3 in January, with a unique camera feature known as Dualfie, which has been developed exclusively for the Indian market.

The Dualfie feature allows you to use both front and rear cameras simultaneously and have both pictures displayed together on your phone screen.

 

InFocus Vision 3: Great Value for Money

The InFocus Vision 3 is a budget phone, priced at Rs.6,999. At this price-point, it spells good value for money.

The smartphone sports a 5.7-inch HD+ Full Vision display, with resolution of 1440×720 pixels and an aspect ratio of 18:9. It has a body to screen ratio of 82.4% and the screen has 2.5 D curved glass.

By and large, the phone feels pretty good. Although one can notice some color change when tilting the display, the viewing angels and overall display quality are fairly good, especially for a budget phone.

Vision 3 is powered by a 1.3GHz Quad core processor, with Mali-T720 GPU. It comes with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage, expandable up to 128GB. The phone runs Android v7.0 Nougat Smile UX.

The phone is rather slow when you switch in on, but once it has settled down, it starts running without interruptions. One would have expected Vision 3 to have a better processor than MediaTek MT6737H. This lacks the power and there are phones with better processors in this price range.

Avoid multitasking, as this slows the phone to quite an extent. Most apps and features work smoothly on their own.

Vision 3 packs in a 4000mAh lithium ion battery, which is impressive. The battery performance is inarguably good; and this deserves to be a highlight of this budget phone. The company claims the battery gives standby time of 22 days, music shuffle of 45 hours and talk time of 20 hours; and also allows reverse charging, so you can turn your phone into a power bank.

It is a dual SIM phone that offers 4G LTE, GPRS and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n.

 

InFocus Vision 3: When a Picture Speaks a Thousand Words

Although Vision 3 offers good specs, the spotlight has been stolen by its camera. With a tagline “capture it all”, Vision 3 has a dual camera setup on the rear. The primary camera is 13MP and the secondary one is 5MP. The rear camera has a 120 degree wide angel lens and an LED flash. The front-facing camera is 8MP and offers the Dualfie feature.

Some of the options like Beauty Mode, Panorama and Pro Mode work really well and are useful. The front camera offers bokeh mode, which blurs the background in a picture. However, this mode is rather disappointing in Vision 3. Often the phone isn’t able to identify the background accurately, and you may end up with parts of your face blurred as well.

There’s another feature here, which pops a message if you’ve left the camera on and idle for more than 2 minutes. After this, the phone automatically shuts down the camera app, which saves battery.
