Infinix Note 5 Stylus Design

At the bottom of the phone will be a 3.5mm headphone jack, micro-USB port, speaker grill and stylus. It has to be pressed to take out the stylus. Like the stylus found in the Samsung Galaxy Note series, it also has a button. The hand reaches the power button easily, but for the volume button, you may need to stretch the hand slightly. The SIM tray is on the left side of the phone and in the retail box you will find an 18 watt charger.

Infinix Note 5 Stylus performance, battery life and camera

The Infinix Note 5 Stylus smartphone did not slow down during multitasking and navigation between menus. The fingerprint sensor given for security in the phone also works fast. Instead of providing its own face unlock software, the company has given Google Smart Unlock support. The stylus is what makes this device different from the Infinix Note 5.

The stylus proved to be quite useful for notes and sketching. The thing to note here is that if you keep the stylus out of the phone for a long time, you will get a pop-up reminder. The company has given XPen app in the phone. The app can be opened easily with the help of buttons on the stylus. For the information of the people, let us know that the photo can be clicked with the help of button on the stylus present in Samsung Galaxy Note 9, but this feature is not given in the stylus given in Infinix Note 5.


Now talk of benchmark score. The Note 5 Stylus scored 84,828 in the Antutu Benchmark and 4,475 in the PCMark Work 2.0.

In our HD video loop test, the phone supported us for 13 hours and 37 minutes. Recall that, Infinix Note 5 had a backup of 9 hours and 40 minutes. With the help of the 18 watt charger that comes with the phone, the battery of the phone is charged from zero to 42 percent in half an hour. PUBG Mobile can be played on the medium graphics settings. During gaming, the phone slowed down due to which the medium setting had to be set to low. The battery reduces by 18 percent after playing for an hour or more and the phone starts heating up a bit.

The Note 5 Stylus has a 12-megapixel single rear camera setup and a 16-megapixel front camera with selfie flash. In the camera app, users will get features such as Panaroma, Night, Time Lapse, Professional, Beauty and Portrait Mode. Google Lens is also integrated into the camera app. The quality of the pictures taken by the Note 5 stylus is average. In daylight, the phone focuses slowly. Slow focus can disappoint you while taking a macro shot. With the help of portrait mode, the picture has a good depth effect. Camera performance in low-light is not very good and after clicking the picture, it looks grain. Both primary and selfie cameras are capable of recording video at 1080 pixels, but you will not get video stabilization support in the phone.

Our decision

Being part of the Android One program, the Infinix Note 5 Stylus is guaranteed to receive regular software and security updates. The Vivid display of the phone is quite good and its stylus also proved to be quite useful. In the phone, you will get stylus like Samsung Galaxy Note series. But if you are not fond of using the stylus, then in the budget of up to Rs 15,000, you will get the options of best smartphones like Asus ZenFone Max Pro M2, Realme U1 (Review).
