The InFocus Vision 3 Pro is a good budget smartphone that comes with a modern, bezel-less design. The smartphone has a good HD+ display, good set of cameras, dual primary cameras with bokeh effect, decent overall performance, two-day battery life and smooth interface. For unlocking the phone you can use both fingerprint sensor and Face Unlock. However, fast charging and Full HD resolution are missing, the processor feels a bit outdated and we do not get a dedicated microSD card slot. So if you want a decent smartphone in this budget, then go for the InFocus Vision 3 Pro. In case you want to check out the competition, then take a look at the Redmi Note 5, Honor 9 Lite and ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M1.
InFocus had announced the successor of the Vision 3, the Vision 3 Pro in India back in April 2018. It has a modern design with a bezel-less body. The main USP of the phone is its dual rear cameras along with big battery life. So let us find out in our InFocus Vision 3 Pro review if it does stand apart in the crowded budget smartphone market or you should skip the phone. Although, do take a quick look at the specifications of the mobile below.
The InFocus Vision 3 Pro runs on SMILE UX based on Android 7.0 Nougat OS and is powered by a MediaTek MT6750 quad-core processor and 4GB RAM. The phone boasts of a 5.7-inch HD+ display and packs in a 4000mAh battery. There is 64GB of internal memory onboard but you can also expand it further up to 128GB. In the camera department, we get 13 megapixel and 8 megapixel cameras at the back along with a 13 megapixel selfie shooter. The Vision 3 Pro has 4G VoLTE connectivity along with Dual SIM support. Other options include WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS. The InFocus Vision 3 Pro features a lot of sensors such as accelerometer, proximity and ambient light sensors.
The InFocus Vision 3 Pro has a metal body and the phone looks quite premium. It has a good build quality and a modern, bezel-less design. The Vision 3 Pro is not the most compact phone since it comes with a 5.7-inch display and hence you might have to use two hands to use it smoothly. It has an ergonomic design and you can use it for longer periods without causing any pain to your palms. The edges are slightly rounded and they help in providing a good grip. The back cover has a matte finish, which helps in providing a good grip.
Starting with the front side first, we get a 5.7-inch display along with the selfie camera, couple of sensors and earpiece on top. The mobile comes with on-screen navigation buttons and hence there are no capacitive buttons below the display. The 3.5mm audio jack, microUSB port and loudspeaker are found at the bottom while the top remains clean. The volume rockers and power/lock button are located on the right while the left side houses the slot for SIM and microSD cards. Turning towards the back, the primary cameras sit on the top right, followed by the LED flash beside it. The fingerprint sensor is found below the cameras. The InFocus branding is found near the bottom. The back cover is non-removable but we get a 4000mAh battery (non-removable) under the hood. Overall, the InFocus Vision 3 Pro has a modern design, solid metal body and decent hardware.
The InFocus Vision 3 Pro features a 5.7-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1440 x 720 pixels (HD+). It is a modern, bezel-less display with 18:9 aspect ratio. We could have got a Full HD+ display in this segment but HD+ display also looks quite good. The colors look natural, brightness levels are good and viewing angles are decent. The images and texts look very sharp and vivid. This display is meant for content consumption since it is quite big and you can do your day-to-day activities without any problem. We get an ambient light sensor and hence the brightness level gets automatically adjusted. There is an added layer of 2.5D curved tempered glass protection on top of the display. It is not a branded one from the likes of Corning or Dragontrail but it surely does protect the screen from daily wear and tear. The touch response of the Vision 3 Pro is very fluid and it is mainly because of the smooth interface and good display quality. Overall, the InFocus Vision 3 Pro has a modern display but the resolution could have been better.
In terms of performance, the InFocus Vision 3 Pro does a moderately good job. It comes with an old low-end chipset from the house of MediaTek but is reliable as well. There were minimal lags and stuttering while running high-end apps and games but during day-to-day usage we did not face any lag. Most popular apps and games opened quite quickly. The multitasking experience is very smooth as the phone comes with 4GB RAM. In terms of gaming, we could run normal 3D games but high graphics intensive games like Fifa 18 lagged a bit. The Vision 3 Pro comes with 64GB of internal memory, out of which around 52GB of free space was available after first boot. You can increase it up to 124GB by adding a microSD card. It comes with a fingerprint sensor at the back and it works very quickly and accurately. You can also use the Face Unlock feature to unlock your phone in just 0.5 seconds using the front camera.
Talking about connectivity, the Vision 3 Pro from the house of InFocus supports Dual SIM (nano) and there is 4G VoLTE support. Both the slots support 4G but not simultaneously. The 4000mAh battery under the hood is non-removable and it does not support fast charging. You will get up to two days of battery life with moderate usage, which is good enough for a this phone. However, charging the phone from 0-100 takes more than three hours.
Overall, the InFocus Vision 3 Pro is a good performer but we would have liked a more powerful processor.
The InFocus Vision 3 Pro comes with dual rear cameras. We get a 13 megapixel primary sensor along with a 8 megapixel secondary sensor at the back. The sensor is quite fast in focusing on subjects and is also accurate most of the times. Although, we faced some shutter lag here and there. The camera is pretty good and we cannot expect more in a mid-ranged budget smartphone. The images shot during day light condition had a good amount of detail and the color saturation was neutral. Although, some images had overblown highlights and noise. Images clicked in artificial or low light conditions had some amount of noise and grain. Photos clicked in HDR mode looked great with a lot of dynamic range while macro shots looked good with depth of field effect. You can use the secondary lens for clicking portrait photos with bokeh effect and they looked very good when clicked in natural bright outdoor lighting. On the front, there is a 13 megapixel camera for clicking selfies. It can take good quality selfies and you can also use the 'light up screen' mode to take bright selfies in dark conditions.
The camera app of the InFocus Vision 3 Pro is very intuitive and clean. It can even be easily used by anyone. It offers various modes including some filters but the Auto mode does the best job in most lighting conditions. We get a 'Dualfie' mode for clicking pictures using the front and rear camera simultaneously. Both the camera department can shoot Full HD videos and the quality is quite good. Overall, the InFocus Vision 3 Pro has a very good set of cameras.
The loudspeaker of the InFocus Vision 3 Pro is located on the left bottom. The sound is quite loud and it is good in quality as well. The audio does not distort even at the highest levels. As the mono speaker is located at the bottom, the sound gets muffled when you place your hands at the bottom while playing games or watching videos. The stock music player offers a lot of options along with equalizer settings but you can also use any third-party music app for playing local music or streaming online music. In our opinion, you should use an earphone while playing games, listening to music or watching movies to get the best audio experience.
Talking about the video watching experience on the Vision 3 Pro, you can watch HD and Full HD videos very smoothly but 4K videos will stutter a bit as the processor is not very powerful. Overall, the InFocus Vision 3 Pro gives a very good audio and video experience.
Out of the box, the InFocus Vision 3 Pro runs on SMILE UX based on Android 7.0 Nougat OS. It is a relatively new OS from the house of Android but is currently one generation behind. You will not receive any OS update ever and hence you should not expect it to run on Oreo in the future. The SMILE UX looks quite modern and it is certainly better than its predecessor, the InLife UI. It is very smooth and we did not face any stuttering or frame drops during the day-to-day usage. However, there were minor hiccups while running heavy apps and games. The Vision 3 Pro comes with all the important Nougat features but the SMILE UX is heavily customized. There are a couple of pre-installed apps (bloatware) but you can easily delete them if you wish to save up on some internal storage. In case you do not like the look and feel of the SMILE UX, you can certainly go for more sophisticated look such as Pixel Launcher or Nova Launcher.
Overall, the InFocus Vision 3 Pro has a smooth interface based on Nougat but do not expect any major Android OS update.
