Infinix S5 Lite Full Specifications and features
You get a massive 6.6 inches HD+ display. This display comes with a 720×1600 pixel resolution and it has an aspect ratio of 20:9. This is an IPS LCD display panel, which is decent for the colors and viewing angles. Max brightness is 480 nits, which is impressive. I don’t know why these companies are launching this much large displays with lower resolution. If you want a large display then it is ok otherwise, I can’t recommend this display to you!
This phone runs on the Android 9 Pie with XOS 5.5. Like most of the phones, it comes with MediaTek Helio P22 Octa-core processor, which is made on the 12nm architecture. It has a max clock speed of 2 GHz. If you are a gamer then you will get PowerVR GE 8320 GPU for the lite gaming and it is not made for the gaming. RAM is 4 GB and internal storage is 64 GB, which is expandable up to 256 GB via memory card slot(dedicated).
On the rear side, you get a triple-camera setup but don’t be happy because of the three cameras. It has 16+2+VGA camera sensors. The 16 MP is the main sensor with f/1.8 aperture. This sensor comes with pixel-binning it will give 4 MP camera shots.
2 MP is a depth sensor and the VGA sensor will work for the low-light shots. This can record 1080P videos at 30 FPS. 16 MP is the front sensor and it comes with f/2.0 aperture. The front camera can record 1080P videos at 30 FPS.

Should you buy this cheapest phone with the punch-hole display?
Infinix has tried well with S5 Lite but there are some drawbacks in this phone. First I will talk about the display. The display size is so large and I personally don’t prefer or recommend this much large display because of the handling issues.
Android 9 Pie is good and XOS 5.5 is decent. Like all the phones it comes with MediaTek helio P22, which is good but still, there should have been improvements. I am not happy with this processor. The RAM amount is good and internal storage is impressive with the dedicated memory card slot.
The triple-camera setups look good on the paper but there is no word of third VGA sensor. The front camera is good. I can’t recommend this phone. But if you want 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage at the same pricing then Panasonic Eluga Ray 810 is a better option then this one. I am giving the kick to this one!
