Infinix recently launched its mid-budget smartphone Zero 8i which promises all leading features and powerful performance. We reviewed this smartphone for sharing an honest and best review about its built quality, camera, and performance. This review will help smartphone lovers in taking the right decision.
The box contains an 18W charger which can charge your phone very quickly. Even though the charger is of 18W but the phone supports 33W fast charging. You are getting Type-C USB cable, some documents like user manual and warranty card, a SIM ejector tool, a transparent back cover and a screen protector film in this box. Here also you are not getting earphone so you need to purchase on your own.
Design and First Impression
Infinix Zero 8i is such an impressive smartphone as it amazes you with its overall design. The design is quite decent and gives an outstanding in-hand feel. The phone comes in Diamond Glass and the matte finish at rear side makes it very smooth to grip. ZERO 8i also features a multifunctional side-mounted fingerprint sensor. In the first look, it impresses you with its classy design. However, the phone is slightly heavy as it’s total weight is 210.5 gms.
Infinix Zero 8i boasts 6.85” FHD+ Dual pin-hole display. Display has very nano edges and we are getting 90.1% screen-to-body ratio in this phone. The phone has 90Hz refresh rate which is quite common in all the smartphones under this budget. Also, it has a 180Hz touch sampling rate so it will provide a faster screen response and a smooth usage experience. You are also getting 480 NITS brightness in the display which is good for outdoor display.
First of all the camera is designed in diamond shape which truly intensifies its looks. The Infinix Zero 8i comes equipped with a 48MP AI Quad rear camera with an 8MP Ultra-Wide angle lens, a 2MP depth sensor and an AI lens. The rear camera quality is quite impressive so it will be a perfect treat for photography lovers. We were very happy to see the super slow motion and 4K videos feature in this phone. There are some other modes as well like Eye Tracking mode, Macro Mode, Document Mode and Pro mode. Usually when you zoom into the picture, the pixels get distorted and picture quality degrades further. But in this phone, picture quality & it’s complete detailing remains intact.
On either side, the selfie camera looks promising as it is a 16MP + 8MP Dual selfie camera. The quality of selfie camera is good. The brightness and depth of the selfies is quite good. The best thing about Zero 8i’s selfie camera is wide angle shot.
Infinix Zero 8i is equipped with MediaTek Helio G90T 64 bit Octa-core processor. The processor is indeed very powerful and we expect such kind of processor under this budget. Moreover, the smartphone is backed by ARM Mali – G70 GPU, which is super clocked at 800GHz and MediaTek HyperEngine game technology. The specifications are good to allow gaming enthusiasts to play heavy games like Call Of Duty, Free Fire or Asphalt Legends etc without excessive power consumption. We played some of the games like Call of Duty and some racing games to evaluate its overall performance. The gameplay was very smooth and uninterrupted. Also phone doesn’t heat much as the smartphone has Multi-Dimensional Liquid Cooling Technology. Zero 8i operates on Android 10 with the latest XOS 7 skin. It has a 4,500 mAh battery backed by an ultra-Power Marathon technology that optimises the power used by the apps and thereby increases 25% battery backup.
Infinix Zero 8i comes only in the 8GB+128GB storage variant and priced at Rs. 14,999/-. The storage is expandable upto 256GB with the help of microSD card. Comes with two color options, black diamond and silver diamond and available on Flipkart.
