It’s been a while since we last touched an Infinix smartphone and every time I see an Infinix phone, I am surprised by what they offer – especially with the price. This new Infinix Zero 30 5G surprised me once more as it packs some of the lesser-known but amazing hardware and at the price of only RM1,299.
You’ll also be getting the 50MP front-facing vlog camera that can record up to 4K 60fps videos – and it has ChatGPT built-in so you can ask it the most complex questions and it’ll read the answer to you out loud.
This phone packs this list of specs:
- 6.78-inch AMOLED screen
- 2400×1080 pixels
- 144Hz refresh rate
- MediaTek Dimensity 8020 chipset with 5G connectivity
- Up to 12GB RAM
- Expandable up to 21GB
- 256GB storage
- Main: 108MP f/1.7; PDAF; OIS
- Ultrawide: 13MP f/2.2
- – 4K 60fps 50MP Front Vlog Camera
- 5,000mAh battery
- 68W proprietary Super Charge fast-charging
- Android 13 with XOS v13.1.0
Now, when I first saw the specs of this phone, I was curious – how does the Dimensity 8020 actually perform? So I installed Genshin Impact instantly and tested the game. I’m going to be honest – I was skeptical but I was pleasantly surprised as the game defaulted to the “medium” graphical preset, and I changed it to 60fps.
Obviously, the photo wouldn’t show you how much the FPS actually is (and there is no performance monitoring tools built-in) I can definitely tell you that we are getting more than 30fps consistently while playing Genshin Impact at the medium graphical preset. Wow.
And because of the curved AMOLED screen, I can enjoy the magnificent graphical fidelity of the game through that screen. Fontaine looks absolutely stunning with its green vistas with weird natural phenomena. I am really surprised by how good the screen makes the game look.
Obviously, battery life is also a concern since gaming on a phone means the battery will be depleted very quickly. Fear not – this phone does come with a 68W charger in the box. It is a proprietary charger, though.
From our test – we can change the phone’s 5,000mAh battery to 100% in less than 45 minutes – and that’s actually really fast.
Yet the temperature control is good too. Those shark fins correspond to the charging speed. As the charging speed goes up, the temperature also goes up – so the phone stops fast charging for a while to let the battery cool down, then continues to fast charge after a while. since the temperature threshold is around 42.5°C, I can say that the temperature control is actually very safe.
Overall, for the price of RM1,299 and you’re looking to get this phone for gaming, I think you’ll be surprised how much value you are actually getting out of this phone.
