Infinix didn’t come to play with its 2023 midrange and flagship series which includes the Note 30 series and Zero 30 series. And TL;DR: The Infinix Zero 30 5G which launched in Venice, Italy is a beast in comparison to its predecessors and close rivals.
Right from the build quality and design, the Zero 30 5G screams premium. It has a slim and light profile with a glass front and glass back protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
The unit we’re checking comes in Rome Green with an Eco-leather back. The texture feels premium and is non-slip so you can comfortably use it even with one hand.
Zero 30 5G has two more colour options including Golden Hour and Fantasy Purple.
It has IP53 water and dust resistance, stereo speakers and dual microphones.
Face unlock and an in-display fingerprint reader comes in clutch for quickly accessing the phone.
The Zero 30 5G also has a brilliant screen which was a joy to use in the few days I have had the phone. It’s a 6.78-inch curved vibrant AMOLED display rocking a 144Hz refresh rate making scrolling and gaming smooth and fluid.
The impressive screen also supports HDR10 and with a peak brightness of 950 nits, you can comfortably use it when you’re out and about.
I liked binging multimedia content thanks to the screen’s clarity, sharpness and brightness even outdoors.
Zero 30 5G performance is top-notch. We have a Dimensity 8020 chipset, 21GB of RAM(12GB Onboard and 9GB Virtual) and 256GB of storage. This combination is powerful enough to handle anything you throw at it – especially if you are a heavy multitasker like me.
The phone comes with Android 13 and XOS 13.1 as well. It recently got the August security patch.
Powering the phone is a 5000mAh battery that supports 68W ultra-fast charging. I was getting a full day of mixed use with some charge left for late-night binge-watching. A quick toss in the charger will have you juice up to 80% in under 30 minutes.
The highlights of the phone are the new and upgraded cameras which I have loved using for the past few days.
Zero 30 5G comes with a 108MP primary camera with object image stabilization, a 13 MP ultrawide and a 2MP macro.
Housed in the centre punch-hole cutout is a 50MP selfie camera. Infinix has now joined the big leagues as all the cameras including the front-facing camera can now shoot 4K 60fps video. So if you are a content creator who loves vlogging, then the Infinix Zero 30 should be your top choice camera smartphone.
Besides normal video modes, you get cinema-style vlog templates with themes ranging from sport, street, family, vintage, travel and more.
Before we end this early review, Infinix has launched their Mobile Vlog Awards 2023 and they have invited consumers to participate by submitting their vlog creations taken by the Zero 30 5G to win prizes including getting creative support for the winners by Infinix.
