The Zero 5 comes with a big display, a MediaTek P25 processor and a dual camera setup which is a bold move from the company. But will the device survive in the fierce mid-range battle where devices like Xiaomi Mi A1, Honor 9i have already made their mark? Let’s find out.
The Infinix Zero 5 is a massive phone both inside and out. It sports a metal unibody design that feels smooth to the touch. The handset will be offered in a choice of Champagne Gold, Sandstone Black and Bordeaux Red. The rear also has a Huawei P9 thing going on with a black band across the top which is where its dual cameras and LED flash can be seen. You can find the fingerprint sensor just below the strip. Setting up your fingerprint can take a bit longer than usual, and the sensor isn’t as snappy as we hoped, but there wasn’t any error in registering the fingerprint. The handset feels solid to hold and the smooth back adds to the rich feel. It is a huge phone so it may not be the most comfortable one-hand experience for a lot of people out there.
The Infinix Zero 5 is powered by a 2.6GHz octa-core MediaTek P25 MT6757 processor coupled with 6GB of RAM. The device is offered with 64GB of storage on board although you will get around 53GB of storage to play with. The Zero 5 Pro (launched alongside) is essentially the same as the Zero 5, only it comes with 128GB storage. There is a microSD card support for storage expandability. It also packs a fairly large 4,350mAh battery, which is needed for a phone of this size. All of this looks great on paper for a mid-range smartphone, and our initial hands-on impressions is that the device’s performance is pretty fluid with very little stuttering.
Now, if you’re in the market for a stock Android or near clean Android experience then this is not the phone for you. The Zero 5 runs on the company’s latest XOS 3.0 Hummingbird based on Android 7.0 Nougat. It comes with some preloaded apps like Facebook and WhatsApp. The XOS also packs some privacy features that lets you password protect apps and remotely delete your phone’s data, as well as apps like Freezer that essentially offloads apps you don’t want to use without having to delete them. Notably, some app icons like the Camera app have some pretty neat animations that make it look novel to say the least. In our limited time with the phone, we found the UI to be fairly smooth.
Based on our initial impressions, the Zero 5 does offer a lot. It’s big, has a vivid display, sturdy build and a software that, while doesn’t offer a pure Android experience, still offers some notable privacy. The cameras are decent as well, although we will need a little more time to really test them out. At Ksh. 30,000 the Zero 5 may find it difficult to compete against the likes of Moto X4 and Oppo F5, as the company is still trying to create its presence in the Indian market. But, at least, it seems to be a good start.
