InFocus Turbo 5 Plus Look and Feel

Question: How is the InFocus Turbo 5 Plus design?

Answer: The exterior of the InFocus Turbo 5 Plus is a mixture of metal and plastic. You will find the top-right aligned dual rear cameras, 2.5D curved glass at the front and smooth curved edges on the sides. The entire phone is accented by chrome linings.

The phone is felt quite light in spite of the massive battery that resides within. The fingerprint sensor on the front counts as an added bonus too. On the downside, the metal used on the rear is prone to smudges. Overall, Infocus Turbo 5 plus is a good looking phone in its class.

The right edge has both power button and the Volume rocker and the left one gets the sim-tray. The micro-USB port and speaker grills are on the bottom, and the 3.5mm audio jack is present up top. The fingerprint sensor on InFocus Turbo 5 Plus is at the front, below the display. Other than black, which we have for review, the phone is also available in gold.
