Design & Build:
The InFocus Vision 3 comes with an unibody slim factor design and its built using premium poly-carbonate and it does give a metallic look to the device. The device is very slim to hold in hand and with even 5.7″ display , we don’t feel any discomfort to carry and operate even using one hand. The front of the device comes with a Full Vision 5.7″ display and there are no capacitive touch buttons. At the right there is a power / unlock button and the sim slot. On the left there is a volume rocker and at the top, there is a 3.5 mm audio jack. There is a Micro USB charging/data port at the bottom and on the back the dual-lens camera along with LED flash is located. The branding is at the bottom and there is a speaker grill placed at the right bottom on the back of the device. Fingerprint scanner is perfectly located at the back and its reachable easily. The build quality of Vision 3 is really good and for the device at this price range, it does look great in hands.
The main attraction of the device is the 5.7″ 18:9 Full vision display. It does look stunning on the device and the performance of the same is also great. The viewing angles is great and even under the bright light, we could see the content clearly. Thanks to the 18:9 ratio, one could enjoy watching the movies and entertainment content without any compromise on the display. And for playing games also, the display is good . Overall, we are totally happy with what the display offers and in this price range a device offering a Full vision display is absolutely great.
Hardware and Performance:
The InFocus Vision 3 houses a decent MTK Quad-core processor under the hood if not a great and faster processor out there in the market in this budget range. We cannot say the performance is exceptionally good on this device, but its not pretty bad either. We could see device handles the multi-tasking with ease when there are not more than 5 or 6 applications in back ground and we don’t see any lags during regular day to day operations. Gaming is OK and it does stutters and frame drops if the visual settings is set to either high or medium in the games like Asphalt 8. If the setting is set to ‘low’, we could play the game without any lag or frame drops. The fingerprint works fine and I wouldn’t say super fast, but it does work as expected . The call quality is great on the device and we don’t see any issues with that. The Antutu benchmark test score is 33078 which is quite ok. Overall for the device at this budget, the performance and the hardware which Vision 3 offers is quite decent and one shouldn’t expect more other that what its there right now.
The InFocus Vision 3’s dual camera with 13 MP and 5 MP combo works perfectly fine and the pictures which it takes in bright light and even in low light gives some decent quality pictures. Camera features are good and gives lot of customization to the end user to click pictures. The front camera also is pretty decent for the pictures clicked in well lit conditions. We are quite happy with the the pictures which shot on Infocus Vision 3. Some samples are below. Dualfie is one of the feature in camera to look for and try out.
Software & Features:
The InFocus Vison 3 comes with Android Nougat out of the box topped with their own UI called SMILE UX. The UI is quite customizable and comes with certain features like S-Boost using with one can manage the auto-start, background apps, defragmentation and Intelligent acceleration. There are certain additional features like AppTwins, Somatosensory motion, ScreenRecord and private space which are useful add-ons to the device. Of-course, the UI looks good on this device, we honestly think, the stock Android or close to stock Android and give the customization options to the end users would have been great on this device.
One of the additional attraction on this device is a powerful 4000 mAH battery which caters the important need of keeping the device alive for at least 48 hours when used to the full extent with data and network ON all the times and for decent amount of calls. We could get around 7 hours screen on time while continuous playback of video and the standby time for this device is pretty good too. The charging for the device takes around 4 to 5 hours from 0 to 100% which is quite OK. Overall, we are totally happy with the battery backup and the performance which Vision 3 offers.
If you are looking to buy a budget device and have an urge to use and enjoy the Full vision display device, this is the best device to go for without any hesitation. Pricing is perfect on this device for what it offers and this device could be a easy and comfortable buy for the youngsters and customers who has restrictions on the budget spend.
