The Infinix ZERO 8 is a unique-looking device its camera module has a distinct diamond-shaped arrangement and the back panel’s two-tone geometric pattern adds more to the gemstone-like theme.
Design, Screen & Colors
The smartphone is built of plastic but it doesn’t feel cheap it seems sturdy and well put together. the glossy finish does attract plenty of smudges and fingerprints though.
On the front, the Infinix ZERO 8 has a 6.85 inch IPS LCD screen with a 1080p resolution reasonably thin bezels and a fast 90-hertz refresh rate. there is a rather large punch hole cut out for the dual selfie cam it’s integrated into the UI quite well. there are even custom animations that turn the hole into more of a cool centerpiece.
The screen itself is unfortunately not as great as you might expect scrolling the UI does look smoother than it would on a 60hz panel but there is noticeable ghosting and smearing especially in the text it’s even more apparent if there are moving lines on the screen.
it’s not just that though the colors of the display aren’t very accurate overall they’re on the bluish side and there’s no white point adjustment to remedy that the max screen brightness is underwhelming for an LCD too.

Fingerprint Lock, Audio & Storage
Moving on the Infinix ZERO 8 can be woken up and unlocked via the capacitive fingerprint reader located on the side that doubles as the power button it’s very snappy and accurate.
For audio, the Infinix ZERO 8 has a single bottom-firing loudspeaker it isn’t anything special it scored only an average score in our loudness test and the sound quality is about what you’d expect at this price point. There is a 3.5-millimeter jack for connectivity with standard headphones and with them plugged in you have support for FM radio plus storage is expandable on top of the 128 GBs built-in.
- Built-in: 128GB Built-in, 8GB RAM (list of 8 GB RAM Mobile Phones)

Pre-Loaded Application and Bloatware
The Infinix ZERO 8 UI is the overly customized XOS 7 based on Android 10. this is one of the heaviest and busiest skins we’ve encountered in a while the phone comes with a crazy amount of applications and bloatware pre-loaded for a variety of different functions. it’s not immediately intuitive what they are for and some of them are redundant plus they require plenty of permissions in order to run too which could be a security concern on top of that there are advertisements all over the place which hit you from the moment you set up the phone at least you’re able to uninstall the majority of these apps and after that, the UI experience is much smoother.
There are some proprietary features that are actually rather useful like the side panel which is a convenient spot for storing some shortcuts and there is also a game bar that is easily accessible from within a game it gives you quick access to notification controls screen recording and other options as well as shortcuts to WhatsApp and a web browser.
Processor, Chipset & Battery
At the heart of the Infinix ZERO, 8 is a Mediatek HELIO G90T chipset it’s not as strong as the famous snapdragon 720G but with the G90T, the Infinix ZERO 8 is capable to grip its own standards against many mid-range price smartphones. don’t expect a gaming powerhouse but you can get a smooth experience out of most modern games and you can achieve higher frame rates on games that support that the UI works fine too if you get past the bloated software experience. powering the device is the decent-sized 4500 milliamp-hour battery and battery life is awesome.

Infinix ZERO 8 Quad Cameras
Infinix Zero 8 has a quad-camera setup, there’s a 64 Megapixel quad that has the main camera and 8-megapixel ultra-wide cam which has autofocused and can take macro shots and a couple of 2 megapixels.
Let’s move on to selfies from the Infinix ZERO 8 dual front-facing set up, the main camera is a 48-megapixel and its 12-megapixel shots look great with lots of detail and great colors and sharpness these leave little to be desired except that there is no autofocus 8-megapixel shots from the ultra-wide selfie cam are nice in that they give you a wider field of view. these manage to look kind of convincing plus the main selfie cam supports video recording in 4k at 30fps dynamic range isn’t amazing but it’s quite impressive.
4k video mode is quite noticeable, the rear ultra-wide camera can only shoot in up to 1080p its footage is noticeably softer and noisier than the main cams but at least it has much more lively colors there is electronic stabilization available for both the main and ultra-wide cameras though it caps the resolution at 1080p it does do a decent job at smoothing things out.
- Main Quad Camera: 64 MP, (wide), 1/1.72″, PDAF + 8 MP, (ultrawide), 1/4.0″ + 2 MP, f/2.4, (macro) + 2 MP, f/2.4, (depth), Quad LED Flash

So, that’s the Infinix Zero 8 you get a unique looking design a large high refresh rate display solid performance awesome battery life with fast charging and a versatile camera setup both on the back and on the front which is nice to see on PK RS. 39,999 (298$) phone.
However, it’s pretty clear that Infinix has cut some corners here especially with the display, and the bloated and ad-filled software experience isn’t great either though it does help to lower the cost of the device one of the biggest things to consider is that the Infinix ZERO 8 isn’t available globally it’s for specific markets in Africa and Asia if you don’t live there importing this phone is probably not worth the hassle but if the zero 8 is available where you are it does provide quite a bit of value for the money.
