Infinix ZERO 5: Unboxing

The first thing we will see when uncovering the box will be the device, followed by its instructions and warranty, later we will find the charger USB type C and their respective headphones.


Infinix ZERO 5: Hardware and Performance

Inside we find the MediaTek Helio P25 MT6757 2.6Ghz eight-core processor, known for its dual camera operation, compatible with the 6GB RAM of 1600MHz and in 64GB or 128GB versions of storage space.


The equipment has an excellent performance even when having 2 processes open at the same time and the level of RAM is usually maintained at 32% if you are not using any application of the device.


Its 4,350 mAh Lithium-ion Polymer battery that gives you over 12 hours on heavy usage, but is not removable, a disadvantage in many current models, however, it is fast-recharging.

Infinix ZERO 5: Display and Design

On the front, the 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 3 uses its rigidity and efficiency to protect the IPS screen of 1920×1080 pixels Full HD with 5.98 inches, which fits in its 17.8 cm height x 7.7 cm width and in total gives it a weight of 197 g.


Its metallic cover shines in its 5 presentations, with the ideal texture so that it does not slip out of our hands, and have the fingerprint sensor space at the back. In the lower part, the navigation buttons are no longer found like in the predecessor models, Infinix ZERO 4 and Infinix ZERO 4 Plus, because in the ZERO 5 they are part of the screen; which is very subjective in terms of comfort. And below we can see the USB ports, microphone and hearing aids.

To one side we find the volume and blocking keys separated by millimeters, and we will see the slot of the DUAL SIM at the same height as its counterpart on the other side, the slot to insert the external memory card. Both are very small, delicate and easy to lose, you have to be careful with these.


The Ambient Light Sensor and the Proximity Sensor are located at the top next to the selfie-shooter.

Infinix ZERO 5: Camera and Software

The most remarkable and appreciated feature of this device without a doubt is the quality of its rear dual camera Sony IMX386 of 12 megapixels, with wide angle sensor of f / 2.0 aperture, plus 13 megapixel telephoto lens with f / 2.6 aperture, which explode all its potential both in night shots, with its 2 LED flash, and in direct approaches to objects with the 2x optical zoom.


On the front, the Infinix Zero has a 16 megapixels f / 2.0 camera with flash, including the professional mode of the previous Infinix ZERO 4 but with the Bokeh Effect and time-lapse features only in this new model. Just 3 more megapixels than the Infinix Zero 4 may have not much difference, but is a good cam with Image Stabilization, Laser Focus, and Panorama, for the photography lovers.


Plus, Android 7.0 Nougat has a good appearance with the XOS Chameleon 3 interface, it is user friendly and has a very elegant finish, but what really gives it usefully is its default applications, such as the multi-account app (practical for have more than 2 Whatsapp and Instagram account at the same time), the screen recording mode and the Aha store for downloading content.


Infinix ZERO 5: Conclusions

This time, Infinix has concentrated its effort in offering better capture of images, joining the market of dual cameras as the perfect bet for this model. You will get vibrant shots with high-quality colors and inclusion of details that will make it worth every cent.

And although the battery occupies the largest space of RAM, its performance is very fluid between processes and with some games of high demand, even when used in screen recording mode.

Infinix ZERO 5 is exactly what any amateur of photography with a short budget has been looking for.
