Hands on with the Infinix zero 8
This new offering from the company is the first for the brand in many aspects. Notably, the latest Infinix offering comes with a 90Hz refresh rate display, a MediaTek Helio G90T SoC, and a quad-camera setup arranged in a rhombus-shaped module and comprises a 64MP primary sensor.
Though Infinix Zero 8 weighs over 200g, the excellent weight-balance distribution makes this gadget quite manageable to grip. This phone’s structure is built with plastic-frame with plastic-back. On the front screen, Zero 8 has a dual punch-hole camera that tends to hamper the continuity of the display. On the rear side Zero 8 has a diamond-shaped camera bump that makes its back-panel design quite unique. You will find the ‘Infinix’ logo beneath the rear-camera series. The chin/bezel of this phone is quite average.
On the right edge of this phone, you get a volume rocker and home button cum fingerprint scanner. It has a SIM card slot on the left side for inserting a dual SIM and a memory card. The upper edge is clean; while the bottom edge is occupied with a USB Type-C port, 3.5MM headphone jack, primary microphone, and a speaker grill. The box includes a standard earphone. This phone appears in 3 colour options: black diamond, green diamond, and green diamond.
If you desire to watch YouTube videos, movies, or web series, on a large Full HD mobile-screen display don’t miss the Infinix Zero 8. This Smartphone has a 6.85-inch IPS LCD screen featuring 1080p by 2460 pixels resolution and 392 PPI densities. Its full HD display presents magnificent colour vibrancy and sharpness. Furthermore, Zero 8 is blessed with a 90Hz refresh rate that would facilitate you in browsing the screen with ultra-smoothness. Its touch-responsive screen works fast during multi-tasking.
The sunlight visibility of Zero 8 is quite average. Unfortunately, this Smartphone has no Corning Gorilla Glass Protection. But the box includes screen protectors for both the front screen and back panel. You can apply those accessories to protect this phone from scratches.
Inifinix Zero 8 is available in one variant: 8GB RAM with 128GB internal storage. The powerful RAM would assist in the smooth operation of large apps as well as heavy-duty gaming software. Certainly, this is good news for gamers. Though its internal storage is quite enough for both professional and regular applications, you can expand the memory using an external microSD card.
This phone runs on the XOS 7 operating system on top of Android 10. However, the UI seems loaded with bulks of pre-installed apps and software along with some advertisements. These issues can somewhat slow down the functions of Zero 8. Don’t worry! Un-installation of less necessary apps can accelerate the performance of this gadget.
Infinix Zero 8 is powered by a 4500mAh battery. Though it is a standard configuration, Zero 8 falls behind the lower-priced competitors like Galaxy M21 bearing 6000mAh batteries. Zero 8 comes with a 33-watt charger with cable.
