InFocus has added one more member to its budget smartphone series, named the InFocus M680. Its design resembles a lot like previously launched InFocus M535, but there is a lot of positive change made to this one. It comes with great features for an aggressive price of INR 10,999, but that is how most of the InFocus devices are priced. We tried our hands on the M680 and here is what we found in our quick review.

InFocus M680 Physical Overview
InFocus M680 is made mostly of metal, glass and plastic. The back is encased in a plastic panel which looks like just like metal, where the front has glass. Actually the back feels like plastic and looks a lot like metal, which confused us a little until we felt it closely. Sides are protected with a metal strip with diamond cut edges to enhance the look. The volume rocker and power buttons are made of plastic but finished in metal.
The overall look of the InFocus M680 is impressive; it is just 7.25 mm thin and weights only 158 grams. One handed usage is never an easy task on 5.5 inch display phones but thin bezels on the sides make it easier to reach every corner of the screen. The phone feels good to hold in hand but doesn’t feel very solid.
The front top of the smartphone has the front camera, speaker grill, LED notification light and proximity, and ambient light sensors. Navigation keys are at the chin, which are not backlid.
The 13 MP primary camera lies on the back of the phone with a single LED flash.
Hybrid dual SIM card slot and power button sit on the right side of the phone.
Volume rockers are placed on the left side.
A microUSB port is at the bottom with the speaker grill and the microphone.
On top, there is a 3.5 mm audio jack with a secondary mic.
InFocus M680 runs InLife UI on top of Android 5.1, it worked pretty smooth and snappy almost everytime we used it. There are only a few Android custom skins with such buttery response, looks like this time the company has optimized the custom interface matching up the processor in this phone.
Like most of InFocus phones, it also has an option to enable and disable app drawer. Browsing through the phone, I found custom icons, animations, and themes installed by the manufacturers. Many pre-loaded apps were also available on this device, so we tried removing some of them and thankfully you have the option to remove them. I would say multitasking is very snappy on this interface. You won’t be struggling with glitches and lags in middle of doing any basic stuff.
Camera is a key feature on this device, and this time InFocus has fixed a 13 MP front snapper to upgrade the selfie experience. The rear camera comes with a Samsung 3M2 sensor, and with 13 MP, f/2.2 aperture and LED flash.
InFocus M680 camera performance is nothing but great in this price range. The day light pictures look stunning from both front and rear cameras. It captures great details, accurate colours and good light. And in the darker conditions, the performance drops down drastically and the pictures look grainy and vague. Autofocus was quick but not very accurate all the time. Overall, it is still good for the price you have to pay for it. Camera UI offers a lot of modes to have fun with, though some of them may not work at their best.
The front camera performed really well as, the auto focus response is very quick and the colours and details look amazing. It captures good amount of light even in low light conditions.

InFocus M680 is one of the best phones around under the 11k range, like every other smartphone it has some pros and cons but summing up all the of them, makes this device worth for the money. You will find many other choices in this price range with better performance or camera but like we all know, we cannot have all of it. There is a lot of competition in this range varying on your different highlights of each of them.
