Infinix Note 5 – Android OneAndroid One makes sure you get a very clean stock Android experience on this phone. There is no bloatware, no unnecessary pre-installed apps you need to worry. Being an Android One smartphone, the phone is committed to next two iterations of the Android versions – the Android Pie and the K. The updates should rollout seamlessly since there are not many extra tweakings on the phone. Feature-wise the phone has flip to mute, 3 finger screenshot and one hand mode. The fingerprint sensor the fastest I have come across but is reliable. There is no app lock. There is no face recognition.
Performance of Infinix Note 5Under the hood and powering the device is Mediatek Helio P23, the chipset is into 12 months cycle since its launch and can best be an entry-level midrange chipset from Mediatek staples. It works for normal day to day tasks. It also has a fairly good energy optimization into it. The Note 5 works well for daily tasks like attending calls, checking on WhatsApp and social apps like facebook, twitter etc. It also is ideal for video binging and not worry about battery drain. Casual games play very well but struggle against graphics intensive games. I was able to play PUBG mobile but not without lags and frame drops, understandably it runs on low graphics settings by default. The call quality is good, the loudspeaker is fairly loud. Being an Android One device, the phone is quite brisk compared to other phones running on the same chipset.
Battery life of Infinix Note 5A massive 4500mAh battery must be reassuring for those who need a good battery backup in their phones. With Note 5, you can easily sail past 2 days and stretch it more depends on your usage. The phone comes with an 18 watts charger and the big battery manages to go from 0% to 100% under 150 minutes. Definitely, the battery is the strongest point of the Note 5.
