InFocus has not just strived to persuade customers with the deca-core CPU or a premium build but has provided top-notch camera specs. Do these are enough to make the Epic 1 the best camera smartphone in its range? We’re are answering this right here.

The InFocus Epic 1 sports a 16-megapixel camera sensor on the rear with an f/2 lens and dual-LED flash. For capturing selfies, the smartphone has an 8-megapixel front camera sensor with an f/1.8 lens.

InFocus has provided a proprietary camera app on the Epic 1 that has a dated interface. Nevertheless, the app has features like voice capture, gesture shot, smile shot and auto scene detection. It also delivers a convenient experience with simple controls.

The InFocus Epic 1 takes decent shots under different environments. The primary camera sensor is capable of capturing accurate colors, while the secondary sensor is sufficient enough to offer selfies for social network sharing. But when it comes to low light photography, both the camera sensors produce high noise levels. Macro shots are also not at par.

In addition to still images, the Epic 1 has 1080p (full-HD) video recording support. The smartphone uses built-in microphones to record clear audio while capturing movements of subjects and objects in a field. You’d notice some jerks in the recorded videos due to lack of optical image stabilisation (OIS). But the smartphone does stabilise videos using electronic image stabilisation (EIS).

Overall, the InFocus Epic 1 seems to be an acceptable option in the market of camera smartphones. It doesn’t have any “wow” feature but comes with a stable experience to capture your memories in detail even in the budget-constrained package.
