Reviewing the InFocus Epic 1

The recently launched smartphone from InFocus, the Epic 1 is a mid-range smartphone that looks impressive, yet fails to hit the mark. Here’s a look at the US electronic manufacturer’s latest gadget.

Fitted with a touchscreen display of 5.5 inches, the screen has a resolution of 1080 pixels by 1920 pixels. This full-HD display should provide a video watching experience that is crisp and has bold colours.

The device is packed with a Helio X20 1.4GHz processor and 3GB of RAM. Those who enjoy playing heavier Android games like Forza, Fifa and Asphalt 8, will find that the gaming experience offered on this device is smooth and without any lag. However if you are playing heavy games and multitasking between HD videos, you might find that your phone will slow down.

In terms of storage, the Epic 1 offers a memory capacity of 32GB inbuilt storage. This can additionally be expanded using a microSD card of up to 128GB. The smartphone is powered by a non-removable battery that has a capacity of 3000mAh and offers a battery life of approximately a day and a half. However if you are to play games and browse on 3G internet, the battery life will be decreased to about 20 hours.

For those looking for a phone with a good camera, the Epic 1 has a primary camera placed on the rear which has a lens of 16 megapixels. For selfie lovers, the secondary front camera of 8 megapixels will certainly suffice. This also allows users to enjoy a clear video calling experience.

The device comes with Android’s v6.0 Marshmallow OS pre-installed. It is unlikely that the phone will receive the Nougat 7.0 OS upgrade.

The phone’s dual SIM (GSM and GSM) slot supports only Nano-SIM, so Micro-SIM users will have to cut their card to fit this device. Connectivity options for this smartphone include GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Infrared and 3G, 4G (with support for Band 40 used by some LTE networks in India).

There are also a number of sensors built into the smartphone including a Proximity sensor, Compass Magnetometer, Ambient Light Sensor, Gyroscope and an Accelerometer.

The InFocus Epic 1 is priced at approximately Rs. 12,999 and is a good option for those who are looking for a phone that has an impressive camera, smooth functioning, a sleek design and a good storage space.

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.
