Infinix Zero 8i Summary

The Infinix Zero 8i is a tall smartphone with a  big 6.85-inch display with 90Hz refresh rate. It has got a dual selfie camera setup embedded in the top left corner. The Zero 8i isn’t thick, and the curved sides make it comfortable to hold. Infinix has put the fingerprint scanner on the power button which is slowly becoming the norm these days even for budget smartphones. The positioning of the fingerprint scanner is convenient but I can’t say the same about the volume buttons which are on the same side.

There is a selfie flash towards the top of the display, which is neatly hidden from sight. The Zero 8i is available in two colours, Silver Diamond, and Black Diamond. II found the Infinix Zero 8i to be a little too heavy, tipping the scales at 210g. It packs in a 4,500mAh battery and s capable of 33W fast charging but ships with an 18W charger in the box.

Infinix has picked the MediaTek Helio G90T processor. There is 8GB of RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage. You get a triple-slot tray on the Infinix Zero 8i to accommodate dual Nano-SIMs and a microSD card. The Infinix Zero 8i unlocks quickly while using the fingerprint scanner as well as the face unlock feature. The big display on the Zero 8i makes content engaging and I enjoyed streaming video on it. Stereo speakers would have enhanced the overall experience.

The Infinix Zero 8i has a quad-camera setup with a 48-megapixel primary camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, a 2-megapixel depth sensor and a low-light sensor For selfies, there’s a 16-megapixel primary camera and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera.

Daylight shots were average and managed decent detail. Shots from the ultra-wide-angle camera lacked detail and had a slightly different colour tone. Lowlight camera performance was average and it lacked detail. Night mode had a better output but fine grain was visible on zooming in.

If you are looking for a smartphone to game on, the Zero8i definitely has the performance. The camera performance isn’t the best and it could have done with a slightly bigger battery.
