The Design and Display
Without a doubt, the Infinix S5 has a design that is going to have you take a second look. You probably might confuse the S5 for a smartphone from another brand. This goes to say Infinix went beyond the norm.
The beautiful design of the handset is a product of Infinix’s move to making their smartphones fit into the current trend of smartphones with classy design.
Design-wise, there isn’t much to say about comparison, when you compare the Infinix Hot S5 to its predecessor the Infinix Hot S4, as both do not actually look alike. The Infinix Hot S5 features a fresh design.
The smartphone features a plastic build. There is plastic on the rear as well as on the frame. On the rear of this device, there is a camera module, a camera flash, a fingerprint sensor, and the Infinix branding.
Flip the Infinix S5 to get a front view, we are presented with its star feature, which is a 6.6-inch hole-punch IPS LCD display, with a screen resolution of 720 x 1600 and a screen density of 266 PPI. Although the top bezel has been shrunk to the barest minimum, there is still a noticeable amount of bezel below the display.
For color variants, the Infinix Hot S5 comes in Quetzal Cyan, Violet, Nebula Black. This means that if you are to purchase the smartphone, you would have the option of having a smartphone with any of these three colors.
The Infinix S5 packs in impressive camera hardware. The camera hardware on this device may not appear to be stellar in the midst of other top smartphones, but the affordable nature of this smartphone makes these cameras stellar for the price.
Unlike its predecessor, the Infinix S5 comes packed with a quad-camera system on the rear. This Quad camera system on the rear is home to 16MP primary camera with an aperture of F/1.8, a 5MP ultra-wide camera, a 2MP depth sensor, and a QVGA macro lens.
With this rear camera setup, you would be able to take photos in HDR, Panorama mode, shoot 1080p videos with frame rates maxed at 30fps and do lots more.
