Read more

The Zero 30 boasts a curved 6.78-inch AMOLED display with a 144Hz refresh rate, 10-bit colour depth, and peak brightness of 950 nits. While it retains much of the Zero Ultra's design DNA, the Zero 30 offers new colour options and a 92.7% screen-to-body ratio. I particularly liked its Rome Green colourway.

Camera Capabilities

The phone's 50MP selfie camera allows 4K 60FPS recording, exceeding many pricier alternatives. The rear houses a 108MP Samsung ISOCELL HM6 sensor, sharing similarities with the Note 30 VIP and GT 10 Pro. Image stability is enhanced thanks to OIS and EIS technologies.

Performance Benchmarks

Read more

The Dimensity 8020 chipset on the Zero 30 slightly underperforms compared to the Note 30 VIP and GT 10 Pro but outshines the Dimensity 920 on the Zero Ultra. Everyday performance is seamless, and the 144Hz display adds to the responsiveness.

Software & UI

Running on XOS 13 based on Android 13, the phone features a ChatGPT-powered voice assistant called Folax. While not as integrated as Google Assistant, it handles basic tasks adequately. The phone also comes with an array of native apps, none of which are intrusive.

Battery Life

The 5000mAh battery performs well for a day's moderate use. Although the official charger supports 68W, I found it to work fine with 45W third-party power delivery plugs.

Pricing & Alternatives

While the official RRP remains undisclosed, the Zero 30 offers specs close to the Note 30 VIP. Therefore, the pricing will be a critical factor in assessing its value proposition.

Final Thoughts

The Zero 30 builds on the strengths of the Note 30 VIP, offering a premium display and better camera setup. The lack of wireless charging and a slightly less powerful chipset do raise questions. It's hard to pass a final judgement on the Zero 30 without knowing its RRP, but it's clearly a step in the right direction for Infinix.
