The smartphone will be exclusively available via Amazon India from July 4 in Mocha Gold and Pure Gold colour variants. Available in two variants, the InFocus Turbo 5 price in India is Rs. 6,999 for the 2GB RAM/ 16GB inbuilt storage variant, and Rs. 7,999 for the 3GB RAM/ 32GB inbuilt storage variant.

Gone are the days where you could actually anticipate a different-looking smartphone. The Turbo 5 looks like any other budget Chinese smartphone in the market today. It has a metal unibody and comes in two colour options – Pure Gold and Mocha Gold. The volume and power buttons are located on the right, while a hybrid SIM tray (nano+nano/microSD card) is located on the left.

The top side houses the 3.5mm headphone jack, while the lower frame has the microUSB charging port. The front has a 5.2 inch display and a pane of 2.5D curved glass covering it. Above it is the earpiece, and the soft navigation keys are at the bottom. The rear is home to the primary camera and a multi-purpose fingerprint scanner.

All in all, we found the InFocus Turbo 5 to be a decent looking device. It’s nothing groundbreaking, but what’s worth mentioning is that the smartphone is quite slim despite having a big 5,000mAh battery.

Performance and specifications

InFocus Turbo 5 boasts a 5.2 inch HD IPS display, which looked fairly sharp during our limited time with it. The smartphone is powered by a 1.3GHz MediaTek6737 processor, paired with 2GB/3GB of RAM and 16GB/32GB of internal storage. There’s support for microSD cards as well. The Turbo 5 runs the latest Android 7.0 Nougat OS.

For imaging duties, InFocus Turbo 5 has a 13MP rear camera with autofocus and LED flash. There’s also a 5MP front-facing camera and burst mode is supported by both cameras.

During our time with the smartphone, actions like quick-toggling between apps and multi-tasking were seamless. The UI is pretty neat and there isn’t much bloatware, providing a stock Android-like experience. InFocus has assured timely updates for the Turbo 5 as well.

Major connectivity options of the InFocus Turbo 5 include 4G VoLTE, LTE, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0.

 We found the camera experience to be just about average during our testing. When zoomed in, the pictures show too much noise. Selfie shooter isn’t really that good either. On the other hand, fingerprint sensor is quite fast. What’s great about it is that it can be used for other tasks such as clicking pictures and activating the flashlight as well.
The USP of the InFocus Turbo 5 is its 5,000mAh battery, which can also charge other devices via OTG mode. But that’s something we’ll only be able to test during our detailed review

Turbo 5 seems like a decent budget smartphone with big battery and design as its highlight features. We didn’t face any major issue with the smartphone in our brift usage.
