The InFocus Vision 3 Pro (Picture Gallery) features a 5.7-inch HD+, 18:9 aspect ratio display with a resolution of 1440 x 720 pixels. During our usage, the screen delivered sharp and bright colour outputs. However, while viewing the screen from an angle, we did notice a mix of blue and yellow tint. Also, in bring sunlight viewability takes a hit.
Performance and Software Department
During our review period, the Vision 3 Pro was fluently able to manage most of the daily tasks, including switching between apps and multitasking. However, our gaming experience on the smartphone was below average. Most of the casual games like Candy Crush and ludo were running finebut high-end games such as the Gameloft’s Asphalt 8: Airborne or PUBG Mobile were showing signs of lag, frame drops and noticeable heating issues.
Now if we talk about software part, the device runs on the previous generation Android 7.0 Nougat operating system with the InFocus’s custom UI, Smile UX, on top of it. Similar to the Xiaomi Redmi 5 (Review), the interface does not feature app drawer but is resembles stock Android user interface. Concerning bloatware applications, the device surely gets few apps like UC news, UC Browser, Freeshare, Mkey, Amazon Shopping and Amazon Prime Videos.
Camera and Battery
The camera performance of the Vision 3 Pro is just average. During our review period, the pictures captured in outdoor natural condition as well as indoors were washed out with noticeable noise. Although the smartphone was able to focus pretty fast, still comparing to the Asus Zenfone Max Pro (M1) the detailing in the photos was off in few cases. The low light performance was just decent. However, if LED flash supports is taken while clicking picturesthey look better. The camera UI is pretty basic and you will find all the prominent settings.
Indoor Condition: Primary Camera
With the battery capacity of 4,000 mAh, the device refuses to die even with regular usage and video playback. In our experience, we were getting an average of 1.5 days of battery backup. The smartphone takes nearly 2 hours to charge from 0 to 100 percent.
