If we talk about gaming performance on the smartphone. It comes with liquid cooling which allows for sustained gameplay for a long duration of time. In this price range, this is one of the better chipsets for gaming.
Connectivity and battery:
If you talk about connectivity it does support dual volte view, wi-fi, OTG is the 3.5 mm jack added as a bonus. There is no LTE plus support and Bluetooth connectivity is also good. It has a 4500 mAh battery and supports up to 33-watt fast charging. This gives you 0-70 percent in just 30 minutes. You will easily get up to 6.5-7 hours of screen on time on heavy usage as well and the power marathon tech also helps to increase the battery standby time and reduce the background power consumption.
It comes with XOS 7.0 with new icons and is based on Android 10. still, the UI has also received a little overhaul to facilitate single-handed usage. There are still some bloatware apps and still not completely clean but the UI has improved. There are still recommendations in the app drawer for instant apps and in the notification bar, there is a persistent notification for bomb store actions. Though these apps can be disabled still a clean UI experience from the start could have been amazing.
It has a huge prominent QUAD camera setup, at the back, it has a 48-megapixel primary 1.79 sensor, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide sensor 2-megapixel depth sensor, and has got eye-tracking autofocus as well. Support for 10x digital zoom, the images were pretty good from this camera and the front camera also is a good one but sometimes the cameras struggle to render accurate colors. The ultraviolet sensor also struggles a little bit in low light conditions but give it ample light and it produces really awesome images. There’s a slight color difference between the two different front camera modules, so that’s also something that you would have to deal with but apart from all of these things the main camera sensor has really good results. It shoots up to 4k videos but the saturation in the 4k videos from the main camera sensor was a little bit bummed up and the ultra-white sensor at the back and at the front as well. The front ultrawide sensor shoots good video with good audio. But the dynamic range is severely limited, while the front primary camera sensor shoots up to 4k video but the colors are really highly saturated and boosted in the front video and you would also see that the dynamic range is pretty limited on the front main camera sensor, which is a 16-megapixel sensor.
The only problem is the images in the post-processing algorithm which applied more over sharpening than acceptable. Gcam mod does not work right now on this smartphone though there is support for cam 2 API, maybe in the near future, we might see a working Gcam mod. For the smartphone, the camera on this one is a good performer and the Ample number of sensors that you get on this smartphone do enhance the overall experience. Infinix Zero 8i smartphone is available for a limited price of $240 (eBay) and this particular pricing does have some really good things though, there are still some chinks in the armor but overall it’s a pretty solid package.
