But what makes this gadget popular or infamous to its users? Here are the pros and cons of Infinix Smart 5. As we discuss Smart 5 advantages and disadvantages, you must put into consideration the price you pay for it and what it is –an entry-level smartphone.

Infinix Smart 5 Pros (Advantages)

  • This device has an immersive cinematic display. The display is generously huge with high resolution. You will enjoy watching and streaming videos, sharing, and browsing through your phone as this display is clear and distraction-free. It is distraction-free since it is a Water-drop Notch display for the 8MP selfie camera and has a thin bezel.
  • You will enjoy high processing performance than peers. The 1.8GHz Octa-core processor paired with 2/3GB RAM delivers high processing performance when streaming content, running apps, and gaming.
  • Infinix Smart comes with a triple rear camera which is quite generous given its price tag. We don’t know what the two QVGA lenses do, but we think they are more or less for marketing purposes.
  • Have you noted anything unique with Smart 5? By now you should. The selfie camera comes with a dual-LED flash let alone one. Even high-end smartphones miss this. This implies both rear and front camera will do just fine in low light scenarios.
  • Infinix Smart 5 maintains the old 3.5mm headphone jack, thus, enabling you to connect your current headset when listening to music, watching videos, or when gaming.
  • It is packed with premium features found with mid and high-end units despite its price tag such as a fingerprint sensor, GPS, FM radio, and 4G network support.
  • To keep you powered all day long doing what you love to do with this phone, Infinix Smart 5 is packed with a massive battery. You can play games, watch videos, listen to music, share, take pictures, shoot videos, and call without worrying about running low in power.

Infinix Smart 5 Cons (Disadvantages)

  • Its body is mostly made of plastic. The frame and the back are made of plastic meaning it is prone to scratch and easy to break. The display is made of glass but has no in-built screen protection hence also prone to scratch -unless you buy a separate screen protector.
  • Lacks NFC meaning you cannot make secure wireless payment via close wireless payment terminals.

Infinix has not provided pricing for this gadget but will be available soon once it is released.


Should you buy Smart 5? It is worth consideration. You buy it if…
