Infinix Zero 30 5G Review: Camera Test

Another highly-affordable mid-ranger from Infinix is punching well above its weight, so I took it out and about to check its impressive camera capabilities.

Following my review of the gaming-focused Infinix GT 10 Pro, I also got my hands on a Zero 30 5G, aimed more at vloggers. It also comes with an impressive camera setup front and back, a fantastic large and colourful display, punchy stereo sound, fast-charging and a powerful MediaTek chipset.

Rather than do a complete review of this phone, which has many similarities to the above mentioned phone (check my review to get a good feeling for what Infinix is bringing to the table), I instead decided to just show off the great camera in the Zero 30 5G – and highlight the key differences between the two models, to better help you decide what model may best suit you.

Since the time of receiving a review unit, Infinix has also released a 4G-only version of the Zero 30, but I do not have this device and so cannot comment on the differences (suffice to say, this model sits a fair bit behind both the GT 10 Pro and Zero 30 5G in terms of features and performance).

Key Specifications & comparison with Infinix GT 10 Pro

As you can see from the specs below, there isn’t a great deal of difference between the two phones – with the key changes being a brighter display on the Zero 30 5G (as well as a higher refresh rate), plus OIS on the main camera, 4K video recording on the selfie camera, faster charging – but with a slower processor and less emphasis on mobile gaming.

The GT 10 Pro is set up to appeal more to gamers, while the Zero 30 5G is more for camera enthusiasts and, thanks to the enhanced selfie camera features, vloggers and content creators.

I have highlighted in bold where the key features differ, with the bold showing the higher spec.

AI Sky Background Replacement

One cool feature of both phones is the ability to replace the sky in images with a variety of different scenes – including night views, and simulated long-exposure/time-lapse still images. There are some slight anomalies with the ‘spokes’ nearest the hub on some pictures, but this was also a rather overly complicated scene for the camera to deal with – and more simple shots net better results.

However, I thought it was worth testing it to its limit to see just how much fun can be had with this mode – and some of these photos look pretty stunning.

Pricing & Availability

The Infinix Zero 30 5G is available in three different colours and retails for around US$339, which equates to approximately £270 excluding taxes and import costs.

That’s pretty much the same price as the GT 10 Pro, although there is a cheaper 8GB version of the Zero 30 5G available too – which saves a bit more money.

It isn’t available to buy in the UK, but can be imported from various sites – and is available to buy directly in locations including India and Nigeria.
