Review INOI 5i

The modern budget smartphone market todayready to offer an abundance of models. Absolutely for every taste without price restrictions. On the one hand, it’s good, on the other, not quite — difficult to choose. As always, smart compromise solutions win.

What should an inexpensive smartphone be like?


Many people start their wish list with a display,and it is right. INOI 5i has 5.5″ HD IPS display. Good color rendition and sufficient brightness reserve. At angles, again, the display is readable. This is important for state employees, because many models still have TFT matrices installed.


Round body lines improve tactileperception while using the smartphone. And this trick is now actively used by state-owned manufacturers. In addition, there is 2.5D glass in INOI 5i, which only enhances the effect of positive effect.

Rear case material —rubberized polycarbonate. Pleasant to the touch, practical to use, but periodically needs wiping. The volume rocker and power button are made of chromed plastic.


It is double in INOI 5i, but mediocre (likein all smartphones up to 10,000 rubles). Gives an acceptable result in good lighting; shoot only with flash in the evening. If you are looking for a device with a good camera, then your budget will have to be increased 2-3 times. Otherwise, the camera copes with basic tasks. Fixing an object, text — no problem! There's even HDR. The front camera, by the way, left a positive impression!

Special features

I would like to continue the INOI 5i review by talking aboutweightless, but for many very important technical features. For example, the device fully supports high-speed 4G networks, which means comfortable Internet speed is guaranteed. In addition, the device runs Android 8 Go — special version of the OS for public sector employees. It has a light-weight interface and good optimization. In practice, many note the stable operation and ease of operation.

Music fans will be pleased with the presence of a Hi-Res codec, which allows you to listen to high-quality tracks over the air. without loss.

INOI 5i can be safely recommended for purchase asthe main phone if you don’t have high demands on the camera and don’t have ambitions as a gamer. Otherwise, it copes with basic tasks perfectly well. It is perfect for communication (messengers, social networks, calls) (thanks to 4G, support for 2x Sim and a good screen). For every day — no problem! You can get to know the 5i better and find out where to buy it on the official website. I recommend paying attention to the warranty support section, the manufacturer has it at a high level.
