Infinity's flagship product line of Polish myPhone, advertised as a combination of elegant design with good components, available at a low price. We tested the phones already Infinity II and Infinity, which turned out to be successful handsets. Today it's time to test the newest Infinity IIS.
Housing and appearance
Previous models were made in a similar way – the front and back placed a glass surface and the frame is made of aluminum material or a look-alike. It was a sensible solution, suitable device accent hardware premium. In the new generation, however, the manufacturer decided to change the style to a more common and less prestigious. Phone Housing is now entirely plastic, disassembled design. The same line of Infinity caught up in terms of exclusivity with other products Polish brand.There is no reason to complain about in terms of aesthetic values. Infinity IIS is in my opinion the phone really handsome. The white version of the color combination reminds older Lumii previous models Infinity. It is said also to say a few words about the dimensions of the device. Smartphone, by today's standards, is small and lightweight, fits well in the hand, and its operation is very convenient. The build quality has not deteriorated relative to their predecessors. The handset, although not perfectly rigid, no cracks in the hand, and all parts seem to be firmly fit together. Praise should also physical buttons located on the edges – do not move excessively from side to side and have a nice jump. Infinity IIS is not out of line when it comes to equipment connectors. Here we have a classic set of two inputs: 3.5 mm audio and micro USB. They are judiciously disposed at opposite edges of the housing. Speaking of ergonomics, mention is also the location of the buttons, which I have only one reservation. In my opinion the wake located on the right edge should be slightly lower. Even a person with larger hands, holding the device in his right hand will have a problem with its convenient pressed.
The display is in specification very similar to the model unit of the first Infinity. 4.7-inch IPS HD has a resolution, which is 1280×720. This results in a good pixel density of 312 pixels per inch.As the image quality? On average. The colors are bright, but faded – definitely lacking in depth, and black is not intense. Less sensitive you should not feel, however much discomfort. Only by switching to the masthead Super AMOLED or LCD fully we will feel lower class panel of Infinity.

Maximum is up to 534 cd / m2, which ensures legibility of the phone screen, even in strong sunlight. The minimum value is too high to call it a perfect (39 cd / m2), but despite this, even in total darkness using a smartphone is not discomforting. The touch pad works well. Responds correctly to all commands and supports up to 5 independent points.
myPhone promises that Infinity IIS, thanks to the 8-megapixel Sony will be taking pictures of excellent quality. Is that really be? Hardware facilities does not rule it a chance. Sony IMX166 sensor with BSI f / 2.4 is a reasonable basis.But before about the images themselves, a word about the application. This is exactly the same as in the other models of the brand, which is native, without any interference on the part of the manufacturer. Is it good or bad, hard to say. For sure we have the guaranteed possibility to adjust basic parameters, such as ISO and white balance. The interface is logical – many users already know it by heart, and the problem is mostly outdated and bears the look of the interface. The quality of photos taken with the phone is, unfortunately, just mediocre. In ideal lighting conditions, images are acceptable detail, but rather only in the center of the frame. The farther from the center, the less focus. Colours also does not knock, but I can write that photographs image in terms of the actual color image. The camera is sensitive to changes in lighting conditions and less than perfect often subjected to without a fight, resulting in overexposed or darkened image. I must admit that I expected a little more. 8-megapixel unit Lumii 650 is the solution of a higher level.
While the photos are not impressive, so in favorable conditions can capture the correct frame. What you can not write about the video mode. Using Infinity IIS can record movies up to 1080p at 30 fps., In order to increase liquidity option is also reduced to 720p. Regardless of the setting, movies look very poorly. First of all, the picture is often zaniebieszczony (as seen in the sample material below) due to incorrectly selected white balance, lacks liquidity and also the most important: the detail. Front, 5-megapixel webcam is also not recommended. It is far too weak to photos of her taken without shame post on social networks. Emergency can be used for video calls, although even here it is worth to think about whether or not we have anything better at hand.
Infinity IIS, like his older brothers is based on the system media library. This time it's MT6753 chipset based on eight core ARM Cortex A53, clocked at 1.3 GHz. For graphics rendering corresponds to the processor Mali-T720 MP2, and the RAM has a capacity of 2 GB. This configuration appears to be a solid solution, taking into account the fact that exactly the same components successfully propel Meizu M2 Note phablet screen FullHD.In practice, indeed, we should not worry about the lack of computing power. Phone smoothly handles all tasks of everyday life, including even the most advanced games. Asphalt 8, Dead Trigger 2 and Modern Combat 5 does not represent a big challenge for the device.

Our tests show that it is quite exemplary. The maximum temperature to which we were able to heat up the device 36 degrees Celsius.
System and interface
The good, almost pure Android 5.1 – that operate in the test phone. The interface is well-known for the vast majority of users. There are not any surprises, the manufacturer does not add virtually nothing from each other, with the exception of a few free applications that might as well have themselves downloaded from the Play Store.The system most of the time is working perfectly, but sometimes he caught. They occur primarily in the system browser, which likes to turn off. In addition, the two times it happened that in unexplained circumstances the device will be unblocked and włączało pocket random applications. After restoring to factory settings the problem does not happen again.
Battery and accessories
Battery, unfortunately, is not grown with the increase in computing power. The Infinity II complained about the battery. How is it here? Unfortunately worse. 2000 mAh is not enough to guarantee the correct time on a single charge. As you can see in the graphs below, the benchmark battery (with brightness reduced to 120 cd / m2) phone takes positions on the bottom rate. In practice, the device is able to withstand from morning to evening, but only if it reasonably charge. I refer to the brightness set to less than half, occasional checking Facebook, e-mail and web browsing using LTE, a dozen text messages and conversations about an hour. For more rather not count.

GPS (with A-GPS support) finds a signal at express pace, and its accuracy is sufficient for car navigation – a walking may be different, but in most cases there should be no problems.The big plus include dual-band WiFi that works in the standards b / g / n. The module very well does the job and is able to provide a stable connection, even in a situation when we are on a different floor than the router. Importantly, we have also the possibility of streaming video on a bigger screen using Miracast technology (called the device Cast screen). It is also equivalent to NFC – function Hot Fudge. The phone has two entrances and a SIM card both support 4G LTE connectivity and 3G. Infinity IIS supports USB OTG, so we can connect to the phone via a wired flash memory format FAT32, external drive with its own power supply or any accessory indications, such as a mouse or keyboard. main speaker is on the bottom edge, the dedicated grill. The maximum sound volume is 80 dB. Its quality leaves much to be desired and may be used only for notification of calls or messages. Internal phone storage capacity is 16 GB. Available to the user is exactly 11.13 GB. Moreover, it is a memory card slot that supports microSD media with a capacity up to 128 GB (we tested Kingston 128 GB Ultra microSDXC Class10 UHS-1 ). For additional space, you can move the application data.
Summary and evaluation
myPhone Infinity IIS is a good phone considering its price. Still, compared to its predecessors, in my opinion, not quite the best. Equipment deprived characteristic – a luxurious look and exemplary workmanship, in return without giving anything extra. Yes, performance is better, but in previous models, well it was not bad. Finally, my verdict is the same as in the previous model. The most dangerous competitors tested Infinity IIS phones are the previous generation of this brand. It arises at this point the question of whether it makes sense to release another, theoretically newer models, where the superiority of the elderly is questionable?[temperatura2 product_id = "21608"]
