Physical Overview

InFocus Epic 1

The InFocus Epic 1 comes as the first smartphone in the new Epic series from the company. It features a metal panel on the back, a 16 MP camera with phase detection autofocus and a fingerprint sensor. Apart from that, it may also be the cheapest smartphone to come with the new USB Type C port, in addition with included support for fast charging.

The front of the phone features the 5.5 inch full HD IPS LCD display. Just above the display, you will find the circular ear piece, the front camera and the ambient light sensor. While most companies go with a linear ear piece, the InFocus Epic 1 comes with a circular one. It does make the phone look a little different, especially in its price range.

InFocus Epic 1 Display

The InFocus Epic 1 comes with a 5.5 inch full HD display. At 1920 x 1080 pixels on a 5.5 inch display, you get a pixel density of ~401 PPI. In our testing, we found the colour reproduction and accuracy to be very good. We took the device outdoors for more testing and found the brightness to be adequate enough with very good viewing angles.

Camera Overview

The InFocus Epic 1 is one of the very few smartphones in this price range to come with a 16 MP camera and phase detection autofocus. The camera also supports image stabilization, object tracking, apart from a range of other features and modes in the camera app. You can record up to 1080p videos at 30 FPS using the rear camera.

On the front, you get an 8 MP camera with f/1.8 aperture for selfies and video calling.

Price and Availability

The InFocus Epic 1 is priced at Rs. 12,999. It will be available on Amazon.in exclusively starting October 25 midnight.

Conclusion

The InFocus Epic 1 is a very good phone at a very good price. It has a few distinguishing features like the deca-core Helio X20 processor, 16 MP camera with PDAF and object tracking, a USB Type C port with fast charging and a fairly good design. At Rs. 12,999, the InFocus Epic 1 is a very good option.
