Infinix Mobile recently launched the Infinix S5 and S5 Lite to the Ugandan market. An out-of-the-bracket make, the new phones have an outstanding feature in the front in-display camera that we had only heard of on high-end smartphones.
On this, you get to experience the Infinity-O display on a huge display. This makes the phone a lot slimmer, with a bezel-less design, and a 20:9 screen aspect ratio. We have the Infinix S5 Lite with us and are going to review it over the next week.
What’s inside the box?
The Infinix S5 Lite box is wrapped in an attractive box, in a colour similar to what the Hot 8 came with. When you unwrap it, you’ll find the phone, charger head, a transparent phone case, earphones, micro USB charger, screen protector, and a few documentation guiding you on how to use the phone.
What do we like?
A screen that large: Is it becoming a norm for mid-rangers to have 6.6-inch screens of late? If so, that’s the best news 2019 has given to smartphone lovers like we are. The Infinix S5 Lite is adopting this trend and fitting in very well with the interests of gamers and phone fanatics. I can’t wait to play around with whatever it has to offer.
Battery so good: As indicated on the cover, the Infinix S5 Lite comes with a 4000mAh battery that can last up to 3 days of activity on good use. Yes, this is tried and tested. On top of the good battery saving, the phone also has a really fast charging mechanism that allows you to spend just less time juicing the phone and a lot more time using it.
Superb selfies: The S5 Lite is a super class smartphone. It comes with a cool in-display 16 MP selfie camera, the first of its kind for an affordable mid-ranger on the Ugandan market, and the first for an Infinix as well. For the few images we’ve taken with it, the output is outstanding. There are no complaints so far.
Nice sound: We might know the Infinix S5 for just its good selfie cameras. But the sound output is equally good. Most of the latest Infinix smartphones are composed with an HD sound output that lets you get the best of the sound regardless of the environment you are in.
Affordable: The S5 Lite is more than just a lite version of a smartphone. If you were to have it for a day, you might as well not think of the bigger S5 as it is packed well enough yet at an affordable price.
