On: December 20, 2017

American smartphone brand InFocus has ventured into the Indian budget phone market with the Vision 3. The smartphone features a modern design with a price tag that wouldn’t burn a hole in your pocket. For a price of Rs. 7000, the Vision 3 aims to make a mark in the entry-level and budget smartphone segment. Let’s have a closer look at what the phone has to offer.

Display and Design

For the price tag the phone comes with, it sticks to the basics when it comes to design. What makes it stand out is its bezel-less display. Although the phone hasn’t managed to eliminate the bezels altogether, it is an ambitious attempt considering its cost. The phone sports a metal build with a fingerprint sensor on the back. The primary camera setup is also located on the upper left corner on the rear side. It bears some amount of resemblance to the Billion Capture+ which also features a dual-rear camera setup.

Performance and Storage

Underneath its hood, the phone is powered by the quad-core MediaTek MT6737 SoC clocking at 1.3GHz. The smartphone also packs in a Mali-T720 GPU for enhanced graphics performance. For multi-tasking, the InFocus Vision 3 is fitted with 2GB of RAM. In terms of storage, this offering by the brand ships with 16GB of internal memory which can be further expanded up to 64GB through its microSD card slot.

Camera and Software

In the optics department, the phone boasts of a dual-rear camera setup on the back. The primary camera arrangement comprises of a 13-megapixel sensor which is accompanied by a second 5-megapixel snapper. An LED flash is also provided to aid in capturing images in low-light. Up front, the phone is equipped with an 8-megapixel selfie camera. The cameras on this phone are also backed up with software enhancements to capture portrait and Dualfie images. The Dualfie image feature has taken inspiration from Nokia’s Bothie Image. Similar to Nokia’s take, the Dualfie feature stitches together images captured from the front and rear cameras. The phone runs on  InFocus’ custom ROM dubbed as SmileUX which is based on Android 7.0 Nougat.

Connectivity and Battery

In terms of connectivity, this offering by InFocus ticks all the right boxes and offers support for up to 4G with VoLTE through its dual-SIM slot, dual-band WiFi and Bluetooth. On the bottom, the phone has a microUSB port for data transfer and charging the device. The phone draws power from a large 4,000 mAh non-user removable battery that should last a long while before running out.

Considering the price of the InFocus Vision 3, it beats Micromax’s Infinity Pro to become the cheapest bezel-less phone currently available.
