Infinix Zero 4 & Zero 4 Plus: Everything You Need To Know

Another Infinix Zero phone is here!

The Infinix Zero series has always been the manufacturer’s flagship device.

And following the success of the Zero 3, one can say that Infinix mobility is ready to take over the African landscape.

Infinix mobile can be considered as a fairly young company when it comes to the big league of smartphone manufacturers.

Since its launch in 2013, this Hong Kong based phone manufacturer has grown rapidly and now boasts of a market presence in over 60 countries (mainly in the continents of Africa and Asia).

The Infinix brand comes in three main phone series, namely; the Hot series (low-budget phones), the Note series (mid-range budget phones) and the Zero series (the premium budget phones).

Considering the said hierarchy, you can say that the Infinix Zero 4 is the company’s flagship phone.

This time around the Zero 4 comes in two variants: the Zero 4 & Zero 4 Plus.

The most significant difference between the two variants is the RAM and Camera specs. (More on that later).

Moreover, the Infinix Zero 4 & Zero 4 plus feature great innovations and a more premium design compared to their predecessor: the Zero 3.

The Zero 4 series is deserving of every praise and you will discover this in a short while.

Note: Infinix Zero 4 Price In Kenya starts from KSh 15,499.

So, Why is The Infinix Zero 4 so different?


The new Infinix Zero 4 mobile phone not only stands out for its massive Camera specs but it also comes in an all metal deign alongside a fingerprint key for secure identification.

Read on as we dive into more details:

Infinix zero 4 DESIGN


As any lover of elegant gadgets will tell you, if there is a part where the Infinix Mobile group knows to excel is that of producing attractive, sleek and alluringly looking hand-held devices.

The Infinix Zero 4 is the true testament of this statement; its metallic unibody with a handsomely protruding back camera is just classy (though some fear for the vulnerability of the camera positioning).

We can also confirm that new Zero 4 is lighter in weight than its predecessor despite the added metal frame.

And of course, I have to mention that the phone comes in a range of different metallic shiny shades such as: champagne gold, silver, gray, filet brown and “ the ladies favorite” pink.

Also, the phone has a centrally located charging port on the bottom side; flanked by speaker grills on either side, adding a unique feel to its general look.

If like me; you believe that ‘the bigger the screen, the better’, then the Zero 4 “5.5 inches full HD touchscreen” will have you hooked!

In terms of the resolution, the phone has 1920 × 1080 pixels, 440 pixels-per-square-inch (also known as ppi) and supports over 10 million colors.

The screen is pressure/scratch-proof thanks to the protection of corning gorilla glass 4.

SOFTWARE


The Zero 4 runs on android 6.0 Marshmallow coupled with the in-house XOS Chameleon UI.

The standout benefit of XOS operating software is that it comes with a downloadable-updates option which the Infinix team uses to fix any bugs in their devices for more dependability.

On the flip side, android 6.0 Marshmallow is not the latest android version due to the launch Android Nougat, which may not go down well with some smartphone users.

BATTERY LIFE


In terms of power options the phone has rather restricting average battery capacity of 3200mAh; this is thankfully mitigated by its fast charge option which gets it all juiced up in less than two hours.

That said it may be good to observe that the phone has been noted to occasionally experience overheating due to heavy usage which results to faster battery drainage.

CAMERA


It is no secret that the modern day premium smartphone definition has to include a high-end pair of front and back cameras.

Gone are the days when there was a distinct difference between camera phones and smartphones, today’s users want it all in one device.

Infinix Zero 4 does not disappoint either with its pair of 16 megapixels back and 8-megapixel front cameras.

The rear camera is of lower specs compared to the 20.7 Megapixels on the Infinix Zero 3. But you can still get the 20.7 Megapixels camera if you buy the high-end Infinix Zero 4 Plus.

The back facing camera comes with optical Image stabilization(OIS), which is a debut feature in the Infinix range of smartphones.

The OIS helps to prevent hand shake and low light blurring that often ruin the perfect shot.

It is also worthwhile to mention that both cameras have flashlight features for better images in a dark setting.

PERFORMANCE


The Zero 4 has a decent octa-core 1.3GHz processor with MediaTek MT6753 chipset plus a 3GB RAM coupled with a 32GB internal storage space (expandable to 128GB with an SD card) making it very adequately suited for the average android user with minimal lagging issues.

Fingerprint scanner

The Zero 4 also comes with a fingerprint reader like all other recent Infinix smartphone releases.

The fingerprint scanner can also be used as the shutter button when taking photos.
