Below are the specifications and features of the device.

Specifications Summary

OS Android 9.0 Pie
Display 6.6 inch IPS HD+ Infinity O Display
Camera 16 MP main + 2MP + QVGA rear, 16 MP selfie
Storage 32 GB | 64 GB Expandable to 128GB
Processor Octa Core, 2.0 GHz
Battery 4000 mAh
Security Face ID and Fingerprint ID


Design and Display

The Infinix S5 Lite has the ditched the notched screen popularised by the iPhone and all it variants for a fresh option; the punch-hole.

The Infinix S5 Lite is among the cheapest phones that offer a punch-hole camera design. This gives it a better screen-to-body ratio. Standing at 6.6 inch, the smartphone has a glossy plastic casing with a 2.5D screen protection.

The rear side of the smartphone contains a vertical triple camera setup alongside the LED flash. The fingerprint sensor is also present at the back. At the right side of the phone is the volume and power buttons. The left side houses the SIM tray.

Onto the display segment, there is an HD+ display (dubbed Infinity O) with a screen resolution of 1600 x 720 pixels offering a 20:9 aspect ratio. Infinix claims the device offers a 90.5 percent screen-to-body resolution.

The large display makes for good media and gaming experience but then one hand mode operation is going to be quite difficult except the software option is activated.

The base of the device contains the 3.5mm jack, microphone, USB port, and speaker grille.



The punch hole is home to a 16MP selfie lens. This is great for selfie shots but the camera lacks a front LED flash hence it is not suitable for night shots.

The rear cameras feature a 16MP main camera, a 2MP depth sensor for portrait mode and a QVGA low light sensor. There is also a quad LED flash for night shots. From all indications, the phone does a better job with daylight photography as it lacks night mode. The Infinx AI software will smoothen out some of the glitches though.

AR stickers are available and can shoot 1080p videos @30 frames per second

Hardware Specifications

The Infinix S5 Lite dons the Helio P22 Octacore processor under the hood. It is clocked at 2.0 GHz with Cortex-A53 chips and assisted by the PowerVR GE8329 GPU.

The device comes with either 3GB of RAM paired with 32GB storage space or 4GB of RAM paired with 64GB of storage space. The storage memory space can be expanded to 128GB via an SD card.

Software and Performance

The Infinix S5 Lite runs Android 9.0 Pie under the XOS 5.5 skin. The interface remains the same as with most Infinix phones as you still get the smart panel and gesture based navigation.

Then there is the major Infinix problem – bloatware. There are tons of apps installed on the phone that you don’t need. There are also ads popping out in the app drawer and notification. A big miss.

Other available features include the Game mode, Do Not Disturb Mode, One hand mode, WhatsApp mode etc. Also, while there may be a few performance based updates, there is no news that Infinix will upgrade this phone to Android 10.

The device is not meant for heavy gaming though and it lacks ambient sensor.

Battery Specifications

The Infinx S5 Lite is powered by a 4000mAh battery and comes with a 5V 2A charger. There is no fast charge option available. In normal usage, the phone lasts over a day.


If you can live with the few drawbacks (lack of ambient sensor, front flash, fast charge, night mode), then this device is great for you, else compare it with the Tecno Camon 12.

Anyways, we shouldn’t expect much from a device in this price range after all. It is one of the best Infinix devices you can get presently.
