Infocus Turbo 5 Plus review – Dual camera no good

Here is the Infocus Turbo 5 Plus review, this handset was launched in India with a very good price tag of Rs. 8,999 and it comes with dual cameras on the back. So how is this handset and how well does the dual cameras on the back perform, check this review to know more.

Infocus Turbo 5 Plus is powered by MediaTek octa core processor that does a good job. You can run high end apps and play high end games with ease, handset does not heat up and another unique thing is the 4850 mAh non-removable battery.

The battery life is also pretty impressive you will easily get a very battery life with mixed usage. VoLTE is supported which means you can use Reliance JIO SIM on this handset. Now coming to the camera part the dual cameras on the back is disappointing, in simple words they do not really work like a dual camera should, check the sample images you will know what I mean.

Rear Camera : 13MP + 5MP (dual cameras), auto focus, dual LED flash
Front Camera : 5MP
Video Recording : FHD resolution

Now there are dual cameras on this handset on the back and I expected it to work like a dual camera unfortunately it did not. With dual cameras you can get Bokeh type effects but if you look at the samples it does a weird Bokeh effect that looks quite odd and feels like as if deliberately done.

Now even if you ignore the dual camera part and use the camera in single camera mode the performance is just average. So in all there is nothing to talk about when it comes to camera on the Infocus Turbo 5 Plus. Selfie also has  a blur mode that does the same with single camera :-). Handset can shoot FHD videos.

Camera Rating : 3 out of 5

Other features

The home button on the front doubles up as finger print sensor. It is decently fast and accurate. There is one more issue I found it probably could be on this handset only, it was with reference to the speaker. For certain high sounds the speaker was vibrating, seems like there is tear.

Verdict

Infocus Turbo 5 Plus comes with a very good price tag, it looked good with dual cameras but that is the biggest disappointing thing on this handset, part from that everything else is good. So if you are looking for a good camera this is not the one.
