Infinix Zero 30 5G Review: Impresses On Multiple Fronts, Falls Short On A Few

Infinix Zero 30 5G Review: Impresses On Multiple Fronts, Falls Short On A Few

Infinix recently launched the GT 10 Pro, a phone that was built from the ground up for gamers and offers a unique proposition in its price range. As I said in my review back then, the GT 10 Pro stood out from the crowd with its strong performance and powerful hardware. For this reason, especially considering that this phone is not intended for a specific target group and there are many other brands, I thought it would be difficult to find something similar with the new Zero 30 5G. This price is to compete. Belt. . . However, I will say that the Zero 30 5G is one of the best mid-range phones I've tried recently, and the phone surprisingly exceeds my expectations in many ways. Read my in-depth review to see if purchasing the Zero 30 5G makes sense for you.


The Infinix Zero 30 5G features a 144Hz curved AMOLED display that is a pleasure to look at while watching movies or playing games. The Zero 30 allows users to record 4K video at 60fps from the front and rear cameras, a feature that's sure to pique the interest of social media influencers. However, the phone's front camera performance is not up to par in low light and Infinix has only promised a major OS update, which is not good. Overall, the phone meets most critical requirements and could be a good choice for many.

Design and presentation

The first thing I noticed about the Zero 30 when I picked it up was how smooth the ride was. At just 7.9mm thin, this phone fits easily into your pocket. One of the concerns I often have with thin phones is how durable they are and whether they can withstand normal wear and tear. Apart from the thin bezel, the phone has a curved display, which further increases my suspicions. To solve these problems, I tried a standard bend test on the phone. Keep in mind that I haven't fully run JerryRigEvery yet, but in this test the phone seems very reliable and well made.

I received the Rome Green version of the phone with a leather back panel. Since this phone doesn't have any flat sides due to the curved shape of the screen, the non-slip back panel is a godsend. Continuing to talk about the back panel, I would like to point out that the protruding camera sensors on the back panel make the phone vibrate when you hold it on a table or desk. However, this is a problem with most phones these days and a suitable case can easily solve this problem. Even though the phone has a tall frame, I never had any problems holding it and using it with one hand.

Moving forward, you get a 6.7-inch curved 3D AMOLED display with FHD+ (2400 x 1080 pixels) resolution and up to 144Hz refresh rate, but I've heard a lot of people say they don't see the difference. Distinguish between normal and high refresh rates. If you're currently using a phone with a 60Hz panel, I guarantee the Zero 30's smooth display will help you out. You will definitely feel the difference. The phone allows you to switch the panel refresh rate between three options: 60Hz, 120Hz and 144Hz dynamically, here you can switch between these three options. The AMOLED panel does a good job of displaying blacks, and the dynamic panel does a good job of displaying multimedia content, as expected. The screen offers a maximum brightness of 950 nits, providing excellent picture quality outdoors in direct sunlight. While the phone's bezels are relatively thick by today's standards, their curved shape prevents thick bezels from becoming a major issue. Equipped with a punch-hole cutout on the front for the selfie camera, the Zero 30 has a screen-to-body ratio of 92.7%. This allows you to have quite an immersive viewing experience on this phone.


While I usually talk about the rear cameras first on most phones, I'll make an exception with the Zero 30. This is because the phone offers the ability to record 4K videos at 60fps using the front-facing “50MP AF Vlog Camera.” Since most flagship phones don't support this feature and many of you are probably wondering if this phone has this feature, it's worth starting here. Videos captured with the front camera were very detailed and had accurate colors. However, this only works when there is sufficient lighting. If you try to record video at night or in other low-light conditions, you'll get grainy results that won't improve at higher resolutions or higher frame rates. I had a little trouble detecting edges in portrait mode when taking photos, but otherwise the phone took decent photos.

Now let's talk about the rear cameras. The main camera of the phone has a resolution of 108 megapixels, f/1.7 aperture and supports PDAF+OIS. The phone has a 13-megapixel high-resolution sensor and a 2-megapixel triple sensor. While I liked the photos taken by the main sensor, I found that even the 108-megapixel camera doesn't take exceptionally detailed photos. When zooming in, even on objects that weren't too far away, there was a loss of detail that you wouldn't normally expect from a high-resolution sensor. While the middle portion of the frame looked fairly sharp, there was a noticeable lack of detail moving towards the edges.

The video recorded by the rear camera was of good quality. However, if you want to record these videos on the go, keep in mind that the video will be a little blurry. Despite the presence of optical image stabilization, during tests the video captured by the main camera of the phone turned out to be intermittent.

Performance and Software

The Zero 30 is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 8020 chipset with an octa-core processor (four Cortex-A78 cores @ 2.6 GHz and four high-performance Cortex-A55 cores @ 2.0 GHz) and an Arm Mali G77 MC9 GPU. The Dimensity 8020 SoC handles multitasking with ease and with up to 21GB RAM (12GB internal + 9GB expandable RAM), I had no performance issues no matter the number of apps. in one device. Room. In terms of gaming performance, I played Duty Mobile on the phone and again did not notice any lag or frame drops during my gaming session. The phone has an 11-layer vapor chamber cooling system that ensured I didn't experience any overheating during or after my gaming session.

In terms of benchmarks, the phone scored 706,479 on AnTuTu, which is the highest score of any phone we've tested in this price range. In Geekbench 6, the phone scored 993 in single-core mode and 3,355 in multi-core mode. These results are also impressive in terms of the value of a telephone inquiry.

In terms of software, the phone comes with XOS V13.1.0 and you get a few pre-installed apps that may or may not bother you a lot depending on your preferences. If you've used XOS before, you'll feel right at home with features like Game Mode, XClone, and Lightning Multi-Window. The brand launched a ChatGPT-based AI assistant called “Folax”, which does its job well. Because this assistant is powered by one of the best AI tools in the industry, it understands the context perfectly and answers your questions. However, some features (such as playing music) may require you to download certain applications. . Overall, I found Fox to be a competent AI assistant.

For added security, in addition to the in-display fingerprint sensor (which works reliably), you get an interesting Peak Proof feature that allows you to hide parts of the screen for greater privacy, even in crowded places. When I used it, I found the feature more weird than useful.

The biggest problem with the Zero 30 is software support, with Infinix only promising a major OS update and two years of security updates. By comparison, most other brands in this price range offer at least two operating system updates and three years of security updates. If Infinix can make improvements in this regard, users will be more confident in purchasing the phone.

Battery life and charging speed

With a 5000mAh battery and 68W fast charging, the Zero 30 5G falls into the category of phones that need to be charged at the end of the day after being fully charged in the morning, especially if you are using a 144Hz screen with a low refresh rate, use can last for more than a day. However, since the charging speed offered here is very fast, the entire process does not seem as tedious as other phones.

In the PCMark battery test, the phone lasted 12 hours and 37 minutes with the automatic refresh rate option enabled. You can get better results if the screen refresh rate is set to 60Hz. The phone was able to charge from 0% to 100% in less than an hour, which is especially impressive.

Final decision

The Infinix Zero 30 5G is impressive in many ways: it has a stunning design, a stunning display, and a powerful processor. However, this causes problems with camera performance, especially in low light conditions. Also, the brand only provides software support for the phone for a year which is disappointing, otherwise this phone has a lot of potential. Overall, this phone will be a good buy for most people whose budget is below INR 25,000. At this price range, the phone competes with the OnePlus Nord CE3 5G (review) and iQOO Z7 Pro (review). While these other phones have their strengths, the Zero 30 5G looks like a solid offering to say the least.
