There is pretty much to talk about this sleek smartphone. Infinix has earned a sudden reputation; their presence in Nigeria has seen the realization of smartphones exceeding our expectations. Infinx Zero blew my mind and got me pondering how the guys could stack in just about everything required for a smartphone into this baby. What’s most striking is that, it is completely affordable. Tecno has really got a competition here, and it’s goodnews for everyone, because all players in the industry will have to up their game.
Can Infinix claim some bragging rights in a region already dominated by Tecno and Gionee? The answer could possibly be positive, only if they keep pumping in unbelievable mid-range smartphones that can drop the jaw of users in Nigeria.
Infinix Zero looks is built to stand the test of time without ripping-off your wallet. The battery life isn’t the best out there, but it does come with a lot of incredible features and design that would make you have an incredible experience with the handset.
Right-out of the box, you will have a USB cable, Earpiece, USB charger and a manual.
OMG! I screamed as I held the smartphone, what I felt and saw never crossed my mind. I was expecting Infinix to use one of those cheap plastic as the Phone’s shell and use the lame excuse of pricing for implementing the design concept.
Infinix Zero is entirely built with Gorilla Galls 3, giving it much of a premium appearance that anyone would fall in love with at first sight. It is slim, measuring only 7.9 mm in thickness and comes in a metallic frame, with carefully curved edges that bring the smartphone to life.
One place Infinix does score design point is it’s 5-inch HD Capacitive IPS Touch screen that comes without a physical button. It also does not carry any of those annoying symbols as soft keys. The beauty of it all is that, it has just three dots, each representing Home, Meunu and Back from left to right.
Speaking of the screen, it’s definitely not one the nicest I have seen for a smartphone, it has an average pixel density of 294ppi. It equally has resolutions of 720 x 1280 pixels giving you decent clarity when viewing images or watching videos.
Infinix Zero has an impressive 13 MP camera well positioned at the back, top edge of the phone. This is backed-up with LED flash light and a 2 MP front-facing camera. In decent lighting, the camera is nowhere near the best shooters out there, but the images are pretty decent. Impressive camera features of Infinix Zero include HDR, Geo-tagging and Auto Focus.
Infinix broke my heart here; the smartphone doesn’t come with a 4G radio, so you are stucked with the ridiculous 3.75G radio. It does come with dual SIM ports, however, which is distinctively located at the left side of the phone. On the right side, just above the volume controls, you get to locate the memory card slot. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth have also been included. It uses the conventional USB port, which means that you can easily use any of the popular MHC cables with your Infinix Zero smartphone
Processor and RAM
Infinix Zero runs on the popular MediaTeck MT6592 octa-core processor which is clocked at 1.4GHz. This makes the smartphone one-hell-of-a-beast for its rage. All of these is complemented with a hefty 2 GB RAM to make multi-tasking pretty much fast and fun. I did play a couple of power-demanding games like GTA and didn’t really experience any lag and that’s pretty impressive.

I really have nothing to complain about, the storage capacity is decent. You two options, one variant comes with 1 GB RAM and 8 GB ROM, while the other variant comes with 2 GB RAM AND 16 GB ROM.
Infinix is leaving you with a choice, based on your spending capacity. Whichever one you finally decided to snap, you will have the capacity to expand your memory to 64 GB via microSD.
Infinx Zero is really cool and gives you a great feeling when you handle it. The sweet price spot is obviously one of the biggest selling point, the 8 GB variant is sold for NGN20,900 while the 16 GB variant has a price tag of NGN23,900. It is feature rich and runs impressively on Android 4.4.2 kitkat. It is powered by a 1920 mAh Li-Ion battery. Infinix is saying you can get up to 7-8 hours on the phone, if you are a heavy user.
