Infinix S5 Pro Review

The Infinix S5 Pro happens to be Infinix Mobility’s first device for the year 2020. The large notch-less display smartphone features a triple camera and the feature we reported will be available this year.

Design

Like every other phone out there, the Infinix S5 Pro has a convention body build. The S5 Pro got a glossy plastic body with a glass covering at the front. I would have loved to see more than plastic in a pro device (at least a 2.5D Glass protection on both sides of the phone)

Despite the plastic build, the device did ow with the color options; Violet Flowers and Forest Green.

Also, Featuring a 6.53 inch IPS LD display, the S5 Pro has very slim bezels except for the bottom chin which is common in Transsion devices for structural integrity. The device also offers a 1080 x 2340 pixel resolution, 19.5:9 aspect ratio, and 394 pixels per inch

Taking a hint from its sister company Tecno, Infinix embedded the front notification LED, and ear piece speaker on the thin top bezel.

The motorized selfie camera popularized by Oppo and Vivo finds its way to the S5 Pro. It is situated at the top and contains a 16MPmodule. It automatically pops up when the selfie camera is opened. Care should be taken when using this feature as the expected retraction lifespan is between 140,000 to 180,000 times.

At the back is the camera module that houses the triple lens set up. The fingerprint sensor follows then the Infinix Trademark. The S Series brand is located at the bottom

To the right hand side are the power button and the volume controls while the left hand side features the SIM tray. The SIM tray has room for two nano sims and an SD Card.

The bottom of the phone houses the 3.5mm audio jack, mouth piece, speaker and the USB 2.0 port (seems like Infinix is married to this USB port for life, so we should forget about USB Type C)

Performance

The Infinix S5 Pro happens to be Infinix’s most powerful smartphone to date as it features the Helio P35 chipset. This is a breakaway from the Helio P22 processor which I never thought Infinix would ditch.

The Helio P35 features cortex A53 octa-core chips that clocks up to 2.35GHz (4×2.3GHz +4×1.8GHz). And it is assisted by a PowerVR GE8320 GPU.

The S5 Pro comes with either 4GB of RAM space with 64GB of storage or 6GB of RAM space with 128GB of storage space. While the device can handle movies well, it is not recommended for gaming as there will be annoying glitches since the GPU can’t keep up demands.

The devices run Android 10 OS under the Infinix XOS 6.0 skin. The default skin comes with a lot of widgets and third-party apps. These apps (as well as the XOS launcher) serves annoying constant ads. The ads can be turned off though but they serve as part of a del between Infinix and those companies to help lower the price of the phone.

There are different widgets and features that you may like and use though others look like overkill.

Camera

The rear camera is housed in a hump that contains a QVGA low light sensor, a 2MP depth sensor, and a 48MP rear shooter, all assisted by a dual LED flash.

Storage options should be considered though as higher MP cameras tend to consume more space e.g a single 48MP shot can take up to 18MB of storage.

The app is packed full of features. Regular features like Portrait, AI mode, and Bokeh are available. The selfie camera houses a 16MP shooter. Being Infinix’s first attempt at pop up cameras, it may not come out too well especially with the absence of LED flash.

Battery

The Infinix S5 Pro is packed with a 4000mAh battery. The battery should last 2 days of average usage on a single charge. There is a 5V/2A battery that can give up to 35% in 35 minutes.
