InFocus first launched the Vision 3 smartphone with 18:9 display last year. After this, we will get to see 18: 9 display phones from many companies in the year 2018, which caught our attention. The Vision 3 was a good looking phone but was pretty weak for its price. However, things changed and Redmi 5, Redmi Note 5 And Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 Like the handset knocked.

To compete with them all, InFocus brought Vision 3 ProBut is this phone made to compete with the existing smartphones in the market? We investigated…

InFocus Vision 3 Pro Design

The InFocus Vision 3 has a plastic body but it seems to have been upgraded. Its back has a metal backplate, which gives a premium feel to the phone as soon as you take it in hand. The top and bottom have plastic caps for the antennae. There is a 5.7-inch display on the front, which has a good mix of colors and viewing angles are also good. The display is clearly visible even in sunlight. There is an option to adjust the color temperature. Also, the display output can also be changed from standard to dynamic.

The buttons given in the Vision 3 Pro are a bit high, due to which the thumb has to be pulled a lot. In the Vision 3 Pro, InFocus has placed the Micro-USB port at the bottom. There are two grills together, out of which the loudspeaker is present in the left. The 3.55mm headphone jack is given on the top. The selfie camera is on one side. The notification LED is given next to the earpiece.

On the left side of the phone, there is a hybrid dual SIM tray, with 1 micro-slot for the first SIM and the second for the next Nano Slim. The memory card can be used in the second slot. The Vision 3 Pro has dual cameras at the back and an LED flash. Fingerprint scanner is also given in the back itself.

The 18:9 aspect ratio makes the phone tall and slim, making it extremely easy to hold. It has round edges and the phone is quite light. In the box, the user gets Micro-USB cable, 7.5 W charger, earphones. The quality of the accessories is not good and the sound of the headphones is not that good.

InFocus Vision 3 Pro Specs and Features

The features given in the phone justify the ‘Pro’ given in its title. MediaTek MT6750 processor works in the phone, while Vision 3 comes with MediaTek MT6737H. The phone has an octa core processor. The processor is new and has been seen so far in the Asus ZenFone 3S Max and Vivo V5s, which were launched last year. The phone has 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, which is possible to expand up to 128 GB. InFocus Vision 3 Pro supports 4G and VoLTE works in both its SIMs.

In terms of software, the phone runs on Android 7.0 Nougat, which has been out of date since the arrival of Android Oreo. InFocus has added some customizations to its OS. With this, there is no app drawer in it and all the apps remain on the homescreen. Bloatware has been kept low, so that users can enjoy Amazon Shopping, Prime Video, UC Browser, Mkey Keyboard. The good news is that all of them can be uninstalled as well.

InFocus Vision 3 Pro Performance, Camera and Battery Life

The performance of Vision 3 Pro is much better than Vision 3. The processor is new and is capable of giving a better experience. Messages on social media and general web browsing get better with its help. However, the phone gets stuck due to some apps running in the background, which is a problem despite having 4 GB of RAM. Vision 3 Pro supports normal games easily but games like Shadow Fight 3 start getting stuck in it.

Battery life depends on your usage. It costs quickly to run games, heavy apps. We found that the phone gets hot after playing the game for 15 minutes. In our video loop test, the Vision 3 Pro lasted 12 hours and 8 minutes. With regular use it goes on all day. If you play games then it is difficult for the phone to last all day, you will need a charger for some time.

There is a dual camera setup in the back of the Vision 3 Pro. It is a 13 + 8 megapixel sensor, which comes with a wide angle lens. Apart from the standard photo and video modes, time-lapse, beauty, panorama, pro modes have been added to it. HDR is available but it takes some time. We expected a quick response from this. Photos taken with the primary sensor were good but landscape shots lacked clarity. The secondary sensor allows the user to have a wider frame with the help of a wide angle lens. There is a lack of detail here too. The secondary sensor equipped with autofocus is slower than the primary. There was a slight interruption in taking portrait photos. Its edge detection needs improvement. Macro shots were better. In this, the difference between subject and background was clearly understood.

Camera performance is not good in low light. The Vision 3 Pro can control the noise but the detail falls short. Video recording goes up to 1080 pixels, it supports both cameras. But the Redmi Note 5 in the same list offers 4K video recording. There is no stabilization feature, which would require the hand to be steady. The 13 megapixel selfie camera takes good pictures. Beauty mode is activated automatically. You can lose the details of the selfie by zooming in, but still there are pictures worth sharing on social media.

Decision

Vision 3 Pro is an upgrade of its previous smartphone Vision 3, which has got a strong processor, more RAM. However, the competition has been increased by the Redmi 5 and Redmi Note 5. The recently launched Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 also challenges the Vision 3 Pro at Rs 10,999. If you are looking for a budget smartphone in the market, then you can leave the Vision 3 Pro and go for the ZenFone Max Pro M1.
