The Infinix Note 5 looks beautiful in its Ice Blue design and glass finish with which we are provided to us. The display is huge having front camera and the LED flash on it along with the earpiece. The back of the smartphone has the rear lens, LED flash and the fingerprint scanner along with the logo of the brand, the series name and the Android one engraved on it. The right panel of the device holds the volume key, power button and the SIM tray that can hold two SIMs and a microSd card. There’s nothing on the left and on top of it. At the bottom, it has got the speaker grille, charging port and a conventional 3.5mm headphone jack.


The smartphone has a big 5.5 inch full view display having an aspect ratio of 18:9 which provides good viewing experience for the video content. The screen provides an ambient viewing under various lighting conditions.



Infinix Note 5 uses an octa-core MediaTek Helio P23 MT 6763 chipset clocked at 2.0 GHz and Android 8.1.0 on top of it. The smartphone comes with clean Android experience with the stock Android out of the box. The Note 5 is an Android One powered smartphone which makes it compatible to use various Google features such as Google Lens. The smartphone user experience is quite immersive without any bloat as such. The smartphone comes in two variants of 3GB/32GB and 4GB/64GB.

The Infinix Note 5 sports a 16MP front camera and 12MP rear lens. Both the lenses use the AI technology for the scene recognition. The front camera is having an aperture of f/2.0 for the night photography with soft LED flash. It comes with various modes as well such as beauty, normal and Bokeh, etc. The front lens performs well during the initial testing. The rear camera houses a 12MP lens which also clicks good images in the initial testing.

I would say that the battery is its main USP till now. The smartphone is powered by a huge 4,500mAh battery which can easily last upto two days of normal use. This could be the selling point of this device as smartphone makers tend to tweak the battery capabilities of adjust few more features but not in this case.

Initial Verdict

The Inifinix Note 5 catches the attention with its glass design and aesthetics. The smartphone has AI capabilities in its cameras as well as the stock Android experience seems quite immersive during our initial testing. The battery will remain its USP, I believe.
