Launched in March 2018, the Bharat 5 Pro ships with a 5.2-inch display, 3 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of internal storage. The phone is powered by a whopping 5000 mAh battery, which gives it the aforementioned insane battery life. Expandable storage is available up to 64 GB through a hybrid slot.
A budget smartphone, this one is for those who want extra power from their handsets without spending exorbitant amounts on their phones.
The Bharat 5 Pro certainly makes a good case for itself. Decent features, coupled with a strong price tag in the INR 8000 range, and an insane battery as the USP make the Bharat 5 pro a great buy in this segment.
It is only available in black, however, which is a slight letdown. A rear 13 MP camera with LED flash, and a front 5 MP camera with LED flash as well offer good performance, but do not expect them to click pictures on the levels of Apple or OnePlus devices.
The strengths of this phone are very one dimensional, however. With the price tag, this sort of behaviour should be expected, by the way. A very battery centric smartphone, you should be looking to buy this device if you are someone who needs your phone battery to last two days without charging. If not, then you might want to look at other options in the price range, namely the Redmi 5.
Well-rounded features, coupled with an insane battery make the Bharat 5 pro a must buy for those who don’t want to stay near the charging point all the time.
The Bharat 5 pro houses a 5.2-inch touchscreen display, and is capable of displaying the standard 16 million colours. The resolution on the screen is 1280 by 720 pixels, in other words, an HD resolution. The display is nice to look at, colours are bright, but that’s about it, really. No special features or standout thoughts, the display is exactly what an entry-level smartphone should have.
The pixel density stands at 282 pixels per inch, and the screen to body ratio is about 67.8%. The display does support multitouch input. The viewing experience, all in all, is good, but not great. It offers a decent experience for the price.
The phone has a pretty basic design, and does by no means feel anything more than a budget smartphone. Colour options are lacking, with the black colour being the only option. The phone weighs around 170 g, which is quite decent considering the large battery. The bezel on the phone is slim, however, at least slimmer than other devices we’ve reviewed in this price range. All in all, the device feels exactly what it should feel like: a budget smartphone.
The phone houses a MediaTek MT6737 SoC, which includes a 1.3 GHz quad-core ARM Cortex A53 processor, coupled with a Mali T720 GPU. 3 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage power the phone, which comes with Android Nougat v7.0 out of the box. Performance is largely satisfactory, with websites rife with user reviews reporting lag and phone hanging while multitasking.
Even though the phone boasts a decent 3 GB RAM, the performance doesn’t look like it. Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi offers much better devices in this regard.
UI optimisation is also lacking, with the Bharat 5 Pro running an unknown Nougat based skin.
The rear shooter in the Bharat 5 Pro is a 13 MP one, with LED flash. It also possesses an autofocus feature, which is a nice addition in budget phones like this one. It clearly helps in taking better pictures, but do not expect the quality to be extraordinary. The phone obviously does not have the picture clicking capabilities of the iPhone X or the OnePlus 6.
The front camera, however, is a decent one, and this is mainly due to the LED flash. It is a 5 MP shooter, and helps in clicking those low light selfies at parties and such.
All in all, the camera performance is satisfactory at best, and Micromax could have done better with their snappers on the Bharat 5 pro.
Clearly the unique selling proposition of the phone, the battery is of a whopping 5000 mAh capacity, and lasts you 2 days straight, without needing charging. The battery also allows other phones to be charged through an OTG cable, which is a decent feature to have in a budget smartphone. The ginormous battery is clearly the key attraction of the device, and the main reason for many people purchasing this handset.
The Bharat 5 Pro is largely a one-dimensional device, and is usable because of its ginormous battery. The rest of its features are respectable on paper at least, even if users report degraded performance in spite of the 3 GB RAM and MediaTek SoC. The phone is a decent buy for budget customers who are looking for insane battery life. If a solid battery isn’t your priority, then other options can and should definitely be considered.
