Even though Infocus released a really great phone, the Infocus M810t, which was pretty much the Oneplus One at $160, they are still not as popular as companies like Elephone, Ulefone et cetera. This is the Infocus M560, also known as the M808, I808 or the V5, Infocus really gave this phone a ton of names, and it has some pretty normal specs, MTK octacore, 1080p screen and 2GB of RAM, but it costs just $115, pretty cheap for specs like this. Infocus really created a finished package with the M810t, and I hope that they can do the same thing here with the M560. I’m going to tell you what’s great, and what’s not so great, so keep on watching to find out. Gearbest.

So this phone doesn’t look bad per say, but it definitely doesn’t look cutting edge. It just doesn’t have that futuristic look that phones like the Galaxy S7 does, it feels like the designers took the safe route in terms of design. This phone also isn’t very compact even though it’s a 5.2″ phone, it’s a little on the big side.
You don’t get capacitive buttons on the bottom but just the Infocus logo.
On the right side of the phone you find trays for the NanoSIM and MicrOSD card slot and the buttons on the left. The button placement is going to be awkward for right hand users, but if you’re a leftie, it’s perfect.
Compared to the Infocus M810t, which was encased in glass, the M560’s metal back feels really solid and durable.
I rate the build quality as extremely solid and sturdy, it inspires confidence that your phone won’t break. However, the phone is a little on the large side and it doesn’t look as sleek or cool as I would like.
