Infinix Note 5 Stylus Review – Samsung S-Pen like experience for just Rs. 15,999

Infinix today launched the Note 5 Stylus and the unique thing about this handset is that it comes with a X-Pen that looks and performs similar to the S-Pen as seen on the Samsung Galaxy Note series. The Infinix Note 5 Stylus price in India is Rs. 15,999.

Infinix Note 5 Stylus is using a metal body, built and finishing is pretty good, especially the Red color looks great. The X-Pen houses inside the body just like as seen on Samsung Galaxy Note 9 handset. In fact the X-Pen looks a lot similar, comes with a fine tip and button.

With X-Pen you can Create Note, Write Memo, View Files, Smart Screenshot & for Doodling, Painting, Calculator, also supports Handwriting Recognition (will get that soon via OTA update). When you remove the pen you get the X-Pen related menu.

When screen is off and you remove the pen you can quickly note down content on screen and save it, just like as seen on the Samsung Galaxy Note smartphones.

Fast Charge: 20 seconds of Xpen charge gives 90 mins output. Pressure Sensitivity: 4096 sense of pressure, so the lines are finer and more detailed and overall experience of the pen is close to real handwriting experience.

Inside the hood the Infinix Note 5 Stylus houses the MediaTek P23 octa core processor, there is 4GB RAM, 64GB ROM, comes with hybrid slot supports dual VoLTE, and is running Android Oreo out of the box (supports Google Lens and Google Assistant). This is Android One Smartphone.

The screen is 5.9 inches with FHD+ resolution, it is a full view display with 18:9 aspect ratio, 2.5D curved glass and there is no notch. Other features are Dual band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, FM Radio. There is LED notification too.

Coming to the camera on the rear there is 16MP AI camera, supports AI Portrait and on the front there is 16MP camera. Camera quality is above average, edge detection in portrait mode is not that great but can be fixed / improved via software updates.

Night shots are okay when using auto or HDR mode, but if you use manual mode then the output is pretty impressive.

I played PUBG game, game was playable but not really that smooth. Antutu score I got was 85064. Handset does not heatup much.

Battery

There is 4000 mAh battery and inside the box you get 18W fast charger too. It took me 1 hour 20 minutes or so for a full charge and on a full charge you can get up to one and a half to two days of battery life.

This is a unique handset, hardware is decent, looks great in RED, the X-Pen is awesome and really makes the handset look even more premium.
