InFocus Epic 1 review Camera, Battery performance and Verdict

This is InFocus Epic 1 review part 3 – A 16MP camera is packed on the back with LED support and front camera is of 8MP resolution. Rear camera is with F/2.0 aperture and front camera with a F/1.8 aperture. Camera quality is average could have been better, front camera is much better.

The primary camera can shoot in 1080p resolution. Handset can play 4K videos and it should be able to record videos in 4K resolution too, but that option is not available in the default camera app.  Do check the sample images and video at the end of this review. The sample video that I shot was in 1080p resolution at 29fps. The video got recorded in 3gp format and file size is 128 MB.

Others

The finger print sensor on the back is decently fast and accurate. I did not find any issues with 4G, network or signal. WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS worked without any issues. There is IR blaster on the front, you can use this smartphone as a remote control and control other electronic devices like TV, AC, setup box etc.

Battery

There is a 3000 mAh non-removable battery. Battery performance is okay.

InFocus Epic 1 Battery Performance (time / battery % drop / estimated battery temperature).

  • Running Benchmark app – 15 minutes / 6% / 38 degrees
  • Asphalt 8 + MC5 game play – 16 minutes / 9% / 40 degrees
  • 4K video playback with full brightness (WiFi /4G on) – 42 minutes / 28% / 36 degrees.

It took me 2 hour 37 minutes to charge the handset using wall charger (9V/2A) from 1% to 100%.

Verdict

The InFocus Epic 1 is no doubt a powerful handset with a good build and the price is just too tempting. The deca core processor does not heat-up much, temperature is under control. Camera quality and the battery performance is not up to the mark.
