Design & Build Quality
InFocus M330 comes with a great build quality and design. It weighs around 167 grams and is easy to hold. The device is available in only color. The front is dominated by a 5.5 inch HD (1280×720) display. Talking about the display,it is sharp, bright and has good outdoor readability.
Above the display you have a massive 8 megapixel front facing camera along with a LED flash. You also have a notification LED along with proximity and ambient light sensors in the front.
Below the display you have three usual Android capacitive touch buttons – Menu, Home and Back. The buttons don’t have any kind of haptic feedback but they do have back light which makes it easier to spot them in low light conditions.
You will find a volume rocker on the left side of the phone and a power/lock key on the right. Both the keys have metallic finish and works pretty well. The phone has metallic finish around the edges which gives it a premium look as well as finish.
Moving to the back, M330 comes with a removable back panel which has a matte finish. The back attracts lot of dust and smudges. You will find an 13 megapixel camera along with LED flash and InFocus branding at the back.
If you remove the back cover, underneath it you will find a 3,100 mAh removable battery along with two SIM card slots and a micro SD card slot. At the bottom of the device you have primary mic for voice calling and a micro USB port.
A 3.5mm Audio jack is present at the top of the phone. We don’t have any complaints with the device as far as build quality is concerned but the device is bit heavy when compared to other 5.5 inch devices.
Hardware & Performance
The phone is powered by a 1.7 Ghz Octa core Mediatek MT6592 processor along with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage which can be expanded by using a microSD card. For an affordable smartphone, it is powerful enough to handle your daily tasks and apps.
To measure the performance we ran few benchmark tests on the device – Antutu, GeekBench 3, Nenamark2 & Quadrant Standard. The device scored pretty well in all the 3 tests, it achieved 31,025 in Antutu, 59.7 FPS in Nenamark 2 and 13,900 In Quadrant standard test.
The phone can handle most of the games available for the Android platform. It was able to run Asphalt 8 on Medium settings without any issues but on high settings there was a minor lag while playing the game. Talking about the connectivity features, it supports 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS.
InFocus M330 runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS which has been modified by the company. We didn’t face any kind of lag while navigating through the interface but there was a minor delay while launching the applications.
The phone comes with an 13 megapixel back camera along with LED flash. The back camera can record 1080p videos and it works pretty well. Here are some sample images captured using the back camera:
The quality of captured images is decent but not that great. After testing the InFocus M2 camera we had high hopes with M330 but we were disappointed. The phone also has an 8 megapixel front facing camera for capturing selfies. The quality of front camera is great and you will enjoy capturing selfies with it.
The phone is powered by a 3,100 mAh removable battery which can last for an entire day with moderate usage. In our test the battery lasted for around 18 hours during which we played few games, watched videos, kept all our email & social accounts on sync over 3G, did voice calling for around 40 mins.
InFocus M330 is available exclusively on Snapdeal.com for Rs 9,999.
