Infinix Zero 30 5G Review: shines on multiple fronts, falls short in a few.

That’s precisely why I thought it would be difficult to match the new all-new Infinix Zero 30 5G, which has not been specifically designed with a particular audience in mind and several other brands that offer robust products are also competing at this price range.

And I am correct about that, as the Infinix Zero 30 5G is one of the better midrange phones I have tried in recent times and it surprised me on a number of fronts. Read my detailed review for information on whether it makes sense to buy Zero 30 5G or not.

Infinix Zero

The nfinix Zero 30 5G is equipped with a bright 144Hz curved AMOLED display which makes it an entertaining way to watch movies or play games. The Zero 30 provides users with the ability to record 4K footage at 60 frames per second from both front and rear cameras, an option that can be highly sought after by young social media influencers.

Design and display of Zero 30 5G

When I held the Zero 30 5G in my hand, the first thing I noticed was how sleek it was. This phone slips into a pocket with ease at just 7.9 mm thickness. But one of the concerns I have when it comes to sleek phones is my constant concern over their durability and whether they’ll survive everyday wear and tear, or not.

I’ve received a variant of the phone in Rome green which has an antextured leather finish on its back. Having the back panel not slippery was a godsend, considering that this phone has no flat sides because of the curved shape of its display.

While I still speak of the front panel, let me point out that when you’re standing flat against a desk or table, your phone will shake because of the camera sensors at the back. But the majority of mobile phones lately have this problem, and an appropriate case is easy to solve for you. Although the phone’s height is high, I didn’t feel like it would be difficult to carry in one hand.

The 6.7-inch FHD+ (2,4001080 pixels) 3D curved AMOLED display on the front has a refresh rate of up to 144Hz. While I hear a lot of people say they can’t tell the difference between standard and high refresh rate panels, I can assure you that if you’re using a 60Hz panel phone right now, the butter smooth display on the Zero 30 5G will definitely make you feel the difference.

You can change the display refresh rate from 60Hz to 120Hz or 144Hz by pressing a button on your phone. You’ll also have the chance to turn on an automatic speed change based on your usage, rather than LTPO displays which allow this rate to move in a dynamic way, you will only be switching from these three options.

Cameras of Zero 30 5G

Although I’ve traditionally begun by referring to rear cameras for most smartphones, in the case of Zero 30 5G I will make an exception. Because of this, the phone’s 50MP AF Vlog Camera on the front enables recording 4K video at 60fps. It’s worth starting here since most flagships don’t offer this feature, so many of you may consider the phone for that particular function.

Now let’s discuss the rear cameras. The phone’s 108MP primary camera features an f/1.7 aperture, PDAF, and OIS. The phone also has a 2MP secondary sensor and a 13MP ultrawide sensor. While I enjoyed the images captured by the primary sensor, I discovered that even the 108MP camera didn’t capture images with a high level of detail.

Performance and software

The MediaTek Dimensity 8020 chipset, which powers the Zero 30’s octa-core CPU (four 2.6 GHz Cortex-A78 super cores and four 2.0 GHz Cortex-A55 performance cores), and Arm Mali-G77 MC9 GPU, are both preinstalled on the device. Regardless of how many programs I had open at once, the Dimensity 8020 SoC manages multitasking very well, and with up to 21GB RAM (12GB built-in + 9GB additional RAM) at my disposal, I had no performance concerns.

With regard to benchmarks, it managed a score of 706479 at AnTuTu, which was the highest we’ve ever tested in this price range. The phone had a score of 993 on Geekbench 6, with a multicore score of 3355. For the asking price of a mobile phone, these scores are also impressive.

Battery life and charging speed

The Zero 30 5G falls under the category of phones that are required to be charged at the end of the day after fully charging, especially if you use a 144Hz display because it has 5,000mAh battery capacity and 68W fast-charging support. You’ll probably last longer than a day if you use your phone at a lower refresh rate. However, as this charger offers an extremely fast rate of charge, the entire procedure seems not to be too hard for some phones.

With the ‘Automatic-switch Refresh rate’ option enabled, the phone lasted 12 hours and 37 minutes in our PCMark battery test. Even greater results are possible when the display refresh rate is adjusted to 60Hz. This phone’s ability to charge from zero to one hundred per cent in less than an hour is also especially noteworthy.

Final verdict of Zero 30 5G

It is the Infinix Zero 30 5G’s impressive design, excellent display and reliable processor that has impressed a lot of people. The performance of the camera is, nevertheless, subject to certain problems in this respect, especially where there are poor light conditions. Moreover, this company only offers a year’s worth of software support for the phone, which is disappointing because otherwise, it has so much potential. Overall, for the majority of people with a budget as low as 25,000 rupees, this phone has been an excellent purchase.

In this pricing range, the device will go up against models like the OnePlus Nord CE3 5G (review) and iQOO Z7 Pro (review). The Zero 30 5G appears to be a decent product, to put it mildly, even though these other smartphones have their own strong points as well.
