The Smart 5 32 GB, the right choice for surfing the internet?
The main advantage of a smartphone is to be connected everywhere and therefore to be mobile.You will use it to make phone calls, but also to surf and search for information on the internet.
This Smart 5 32 GB is a large model, a little bulky.Not necessarily practical to handle with its 6.6 inches when you have to make a phone call.
For the internet on the other hand, the navigation will be perfect.Thanks to this size, it will be easy for you to read the texts on your screen.Smooth web browsing, and pleasant interaction with the images displayed on the screen.A real pleasure.
The device is equipped with Wifi.Convenient if you have cut off portability (abroad) and want to stay in touch with your loved ones.This smartphone comes with GPS.No more need for a map to get around a city or a country.Unless you’re in the middle of the desert.
Some smartphones can hide more than one.In other words, the ability to use multiple phone lines in this unit.This model allows you to manage several operators.An interesting option abroad.
Detail that is missing on this Smart 5 32 GB is the absence of reinforced glass.It’s hard to predict that a device will never fall down.
You will need to plan for the purchase of a protective film.
For the battery, this phone includes one of the most powerful with 5000 mAH and therefore a better autonomy.Convenient when you’re travelling or simply away from the office.
Infinix did not choose to install the fast charge feature on this model.Too bad, it’s a very interesting feature today.
Analysis of multimedia functions.
More and more of us watch our phones at the expense of our TVs every day.Perfectly designed for our daily needs.It even replaces the radio, or to listen to music.Thanks to the ever-increasing access to networks, and with easy-to-use applications, it has become very simple to watch a streaming movie (Netflix, YouTube or Disney) on a phone screen.However, not all smartphones will do the trick.
With a low reading comfort, the Smart 5 32 GB is not designed for multimedia.He’s not doing as well as most of his competitors.Its screen is not big enough to enjoy a video, let alone a movie.A resolution which is moreover in 720 x 1600.At the limit, it will be suitable for listening to music.
The screen of this model has been switched to LCD IPS (In-Plane Switching).The result is less light scattering, resulting in a wider viewing angle and deeper tones.
Infinix has also designed this product for audio use.You have an input for the 3.5mm plug of your headphones.
Using its Bluetooth functionality, you can pair your phone with all the devices in your home (speakers, TV…).The sound result is of a good level.
On the sound side, we find that there are no stereo speakers.
The Infinix phone, for video games?
Smartphone games now require power.Games, but also applications require batteries.On 3D games, the right processor and quality graphics chip ensure smooth rendering.In short, the more advanced the components are, the better the gameplay will be.
What came out of our tests is that the Smart 5 32 GB is low in power.The Mediatek MT6761D Helio A20 (12 nm) processor is weak and the graphics processing unit of a lower quality than we would have liked.The visual result is below other smartphones in this category.
A smartphone with RAM, but the bare minimum.It’s 32 GB that have been installed, and that’s not much.And because Infinix predicted that some of you would be demanding gamers, you have the ability to expand the available memory.
Intensive use of smartphone games also puts a lot of strain on the battery.On this model, there is little to worry about: it is on the best side of autonomy.A power of 5000 mAh will give you all day to play.Add to this a quality design and aesthetics that will make this smartphone a beautiful object.
We would have appreciated a higher level for displaying applications.The components do not allow for a quality display.That’s gonna make it harder to read.Even if it remains legible, the clarity of the image and the display are below the competition.
Please note that this model does not allow contactless payments.
What about the videos?
Having become an essential use of smartphones, the photo function has made great strides since the first generations.For a long time, manufacturers have been communicating about the millions of pixels their devices were equipped with.But this characteristic is not everything.The possible retouching via application is also interesting.Infinix is renowned for the quality of its sensors and the design of its smartphones.
This smartphone has the camera part whose functionalities are supported by the Android OS .And for an even better result, this phone contains 3 lenses.
If you are very attached to the quality of the photos, you may be disappointed by this Smart 5 32 GB.A photo resolution of 13 Mp which gives a low quality result.The technical specifications are perfect for selfies.This will allow you to retouch your photos.You will be able to see at which point each point in the image is correctly captured.This smartphone has only 32 GB; that’s very little in terms of storage.Limited space to store your holiday photos and movies.To put it plainly, you will have to make room regularly or your memory will be saturated.
What about the Smart 5 32 GB?
Following our tests, we see that this Smart 5 32 GB is not good for all cases.It’s a model that’s mostly intended for troubleshooting.In conclusion, it’s a pricey choice.
