Question – Does Infocus M350 have Corning Gorilla Glass Protection?

Answer – No, Gorilla Glass 3 is not present.

Question – How is the Display on Infocus M350

Answer – The IPS LCD panel includes a 720p HD resolution. The display is sharp, but not very vibrant. Colors and viewing angles are good, though not the best. In the respective price range, display quality is above average. Touch responsiveness and outdoor visibility is quite good.

Question – How is the Design and Build Quality?

Answer – Infocus M350 has a curved matte finish back. It is slim around the edges, but overall, this is not a slim smartphone. weight is quite reasonable and hardware buttons housed on the slim edges give good feedback. Vertical bezels on the front side are too beefy and look more so as navigation keys are on the display, which also makes this phone taller than other 5 Inch display smartphones. The quality of plastic used robs M350 of a premium finish.

Question – Navigation keys are on screen or capacitive buttons?

Answer – only on-screen navigation keys are present.

Question – Is there any heating issue in Infocus M350?

Answer –  We haven’t experienced any abnormal heating in M350.

Question – What comes inside the Box?

Answer – We don’t have the infocus M350 box with us, so we are not sure what all will come bundled inside.

Question – What size SIM card is supported?

Answer –  One normal SIM card slot and one Micro SIM

Question – Does it have LED notification light?

Answer – Yes, LED notification light is present

Question – How much is Free Storage?

Answer – Out of 16 GB, around 12 GB is available at user end. You can choose SD card as external storage

Question – Does it support USB OTG?

Answer – Yes, USB OTG is supported.

Question – How much is free RAM on first boot?

Answer – Out of 2 GB, 1.5 GB RAM is available on first boot.

Question – How is the Camera Quality?

Answer –  The rear 8 MP camera delivers average performance. Day light shots are good, but the camera falters beyond normal in artificial light. The selfies clicked from the 8 MP front camera look good even in indoor lighting, though we expected better details.  a separate beauty plus app is present which lets you toggle your selfies.

Question – How is the performance ? How much did it score on Antutu and Nenamarks?

Screenshot_2015-06-25-15-08-46

Answer –  Performance is pretty good. Infocus M350 scored 31596 points on Antutu, 56.1 and 9923 on quadrant standards. Performance is smooth even with graphic intensive games.

Question – How is the device software?

Screenshot_2015-06-25-18-28-44Screenshot_2015-06-25-18-28-26 (1)

Answer – Software is Android 4.4.4 KitKat based customized UI, which isn’t very palatable. Both UI design and features need more work.

Question – How many sensors does Infocus M350 have?

Answer – You can see the full list in the image below

Question – How loud is Loudspeaker?

Answer – loudspeaker is reasonably loud and because of the curved design, sound is not blocked when the phone rests on a flat surface.

Question – Can Infocus M350 Play Full HD 1080p Videos?

Answer – Yes, the handset can play Full HD 1080p and HD 720p videos.

Question – How is the battery backup?

Screenshot_2015-06-25-18-32-58

Answer – Battery backup has also been above average so far. Antutu battery tester score with brightness on is 8380, which is comfortably above average.

[stextbox id=”info” caption=”Note” direction=”ltr” shadow=”true”]Now, Once we get to spend more time with it, we will update more info in this article about battery backup and performance.[/stextbox]

Conclusion

Infocus M350 has a solid processor and sharp display, but the UI, camera and design left us wanting for more. The device appears to be a little less lucrative in practice than on paper. There is still a lot to like in the new infocus smartphone. Registrations are open and the handset will be available for purchase tomorrow.

    • How did you solve the sim 1 slot problem… please share… me too have the same problem now…Infocus m350

  16. Hey all, I have successfully updated my infocus M350, from Kitkat to Lollipop through 10Mbps wifi connectivity. I guess users with GPRS or slower 3G data connectivity shouldn’t risk downloading the huge update. Reason being, loss of packets over slow and congested network. Try for faster networks else one might download corrupt data packages. Resulting in facing unwanted trouble operating your new mobile.
    I have had no trouble whatsoever with the new update. Performance got even better. And finally they gave us 64 bit O.S. Thus Antutu shows up better scores of about 33k. While among the other new things, the front camera got HDR feature enabled. While there has been sudden temperature spikes on rare occasions, on heavy usages, which gets addressed automatically and quickly. Kudos to the cooling of the device. I feel like I own a beast. What a performer, a true beauty at only 6999 INR. The specification speaks for itself.
    There has been so many other overhauls done via the lollipop update. All better than before. One must totally go for the upgrade.

  17. Also I infocus m350 comes with little known Ashahi Dragontail scratch resistant screen ( competitor of Gorilla glass )

  18. I upgraded to 5.1 Lollipop today…it is great…..the 5th attempt I succeded. It is working fine and smoothly
