Besides the screen, the only thing that is best about it is its battery. The phone has a powerful 6000mAh battery, which when charged, you can use without recharging it for at least a day and a half.

Why not buy this smartphone?

What we didn’t like about the Infinix Smart 5 is that it weighs 207 grams, which is a lot. However, due to the large battery, the phone is heavy. Also, after looking at the design of its rear camera, you will find that it has four cameras but has a dual rear camera setup. The phone has a 13MP camera and an AI camera. Apart from that, a fingerprint sensor and an LED flashlight are provided on the back. If you compare it to other smartphones available at this price point, its weight and camera may disappoint you.

The camera experience was not as good with this smartphone. Like other phones on offer at this price point, the phone’s camera correctly clicks on the image in daylight. However, when the light is low, you will see a big difference in the photo taken. With the Infinix Smart 5 camera, you can capture HD + (1080p) videos. Moreover, in this price range, you can also do slow-motion video recording.

Talk about its performance, so if you are using the phone only for calling and entertaining, you will have no problem using it. The phone has less RAM and runs on the basic entry-level processor. We have not received any complaints regarding the heating of the telephone. Another thing that we didn’t like about this area is that there are many kinds of preinstalled apps that come in the phone including apps for games etc. Basic games like Ludo King, Coin Master, Candy Crush, etc. can be played on Infinix Smart 5.
