Performance & Battery


It is powered by a MediaTek Helio P35 SoC and comes with a 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage. It operates on Android 10 with XOS 6.0 Dolphin OS. The brand’s UI comes with a house of pre-installed applications and games where some of them can be removed and others can only be forced stop.

The phone is also capable of playing games like PubG mobile which plays very smoothly with medium settings. The smartphone features some user-centric features like bike mode, one-hand support, game mode, do-not-disturb, eye-care, and book reading that makes this smartphone more special.


In terms of Sensors, this smartphone has all the daily use sensors except two sensors as shown in the above image.


It is backed up by a battery of 4000 mAh and is good enough to offer a full-day battery life on moderate usage. It usually takes 2 hours to fully charge the battery.

We also tested the benchmark of this Infinix smartphone,



Infinix S5 Pro features a triple-camera setup at the back which includes an AI Triple Camera 48MP (f1.79) + 2MP Depth Sensor and Low Light Sensor. The camera supports features like Auto Scene Detection: Detects 8 Scenes, AR Animoji, Modes: Custom Bokeh, AI HDR, AI 3D Face and Body Beauty and Panorama.


And now the most highlighted feature of this smartphone is its 16MP AI Pop-up selfie camera. The selfie camera clicks very clear selfies in different lighting conditions. It also offers features like AI Portrait, AI 3D Face Beauty, Wide Selfie and AR Animoji. Not only this much, the smartphone also records the video in 1080P.


The camera clicks a good picture in the daylight atmosphere and the AI provides a further boost to the image output. The bokeh mode, the AI camera detects human face well, but does not recognize other objects accurately, which is undoubtedly a sort of drawback for this smartphone. Moreover, in a low light atmosphere, the camera gives an average performance and image quality is also quite low. Speaking about the image quality by the selfie camera; the 16-megapixel takes fairly good pictures in good light and the picture quality decreases as the amount of light decreases. The macro image sensor clicks great photos. You can check out the Camera samples for more ideas.
