InFocus has been known to be an affordable brand in the Indian smartphone market. They prefer keeping a low profile and yet their phones perform really well in the market. They have been releasing some really good phones in India in the low and mid-range smartphone segment and these phones have been selling quite well.
Now, InFocus has launched the Bingo 50 smartphone as an addition to the already existing range of “entry level” smartphones in their range. Let’s get started with the quick review of InFocus Bingo 50.

Design & Looks
The InFocus Bingo 50 holds a similarity in terms of looks to the InFocus M350 that was released a while back. The buttons, body, speaker and camera placement etc. are extremely similar to what InFocus M350 had. But that is not a bad thing. The InFocus Bingo 50 is a really good looking phone which feels really solid and sturdy because of the minor bulk from the body that it has.
The front of the phone sports a 5-inch screen along with front facing camera, earpiece and LED notification light at the top. Below the screen you will only find an InFocus logo as the branding. When it comes to the rear side of the device, you basically have two options. One is the “fake leather-like” back panel and another one has a similar feel to what OnePlus One’s sandstone back had. It is totally a personal preference as to which rear panel will suit you well.
The primary camera is on the back along with an LED flash and a noise cancellation microphone. The speaker is placed on the bottom side of the back panel. The back panel itself is removable which can be removed to insert two micro-SIM cards along with a microSD card. The battery however is non-removeable.
Camera & Imaging
The phone comes with two cameras. The front facing camera is a 8MP shooter just like the rear camera on the phone. The sensors used in both front as well as the rear cameras are the same and both of them have an aperture of f/2.2 which is good for a phone of this price point. The cameras performed well for the price and the low light performance was good too. The colors were a bit washed out but that happens only when the camera is being used in low light.
Performance in real life
The InFocus Bingo 50 is actually a pretty good performer and really surprised us. The display itself is gorgeous and the size of 5-inches is apt for gaming and multimedia consumption. Even the battery on this phone is a real performer and you can expect some good battery life from this sucker. The casual games ran just fine but you will notice a bit of lag while running some titles that need a more powerful CPU+GPU setup.
Software & Android
The phone is running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow which is a major selling point when a phone in this price range is concerned. The Android has a skin on top of it which InFocus calls InLife UI 2.0. The user interface is quite good to be honest and adds some extra functionalities like gestures etc. in stock Android.
InFocus Bingo 50 is a great phone for the price. For starters, you get the latest version of Android i.e. Android 6.0 Marshmallow on this phone which is not common in phones in this price range. The processor is a great choice for people who are willing to buy an entry level smartphone and the cameras are great as both front and rear camera has the same sensor hence the performance is same and it is better than many devices in the same price range. All in all, this is a great smartphone from InFocus and things are looking good for the company in future.
