For budget phones, Infinix is renowned. Aided by some enticing offers, the business is doing very well with its Smart and Note lineup in South Asian markets such as Bangladesh and Pakistan.
The Infinix Note 7 that we reviewed a while back was shockingly strong, and with the launch of the Zero sequence, they tried to repeat the success.
With the only difference being the camera sensors, the Infinix Zero 8 that I have with me here shares a lot of similarities with the Zero 8i that was released in India.
But will Infinix find some traction with these devices, with cut-throat rivalry on the market from brands such as Redmi and Realme? In this analysis of Infinix Zero 8, let’s find out.

The company has gone big on the design of the Zero 8, as with most other Infinix phones that we’ve seen in the past. Look at that… it’s so… radical. This gem-cut aesthetic will most definitely turn a few heads with a two-tone geometrical pattern.
The color version of the silver-diamond looks very swell here, but the phone is also available in green and black variants.
Amongst other cameras, the large diamond-shaped camera bump often stands out, while also leading to a considerable degree of wobble when positioned on a flat surface.
Infinix Zero 8 is powered by the beloved MediaTek Helio G90T, jumping to results. This SoC made the rounds because of its excellent gaming performance for the price, based on the 12nm process.
The memory side of things is very common, as there is a single 8/128 GB option for the handset.
And one of the best things about this phone is the efficiency, without a doubt. There is not much lag, as you would imagine, in daily use, including light to medium multitasking.
Scrolling the UI or the site gets very smooth when the 90Hz refresh rate kicks in. Infinix’s Android skin, called XOS, is not that well built, but the smooth experience makes up for the reality a bit.
You can also set the screen refresh rate to 60Hz or choose the automatic mode in which, depending on the content on the screen, the device switches between the two settings.
Although the result is very decent, XOS is quite bad. The phone comes with a bunch of pre-installed bloatware programs, most of them from the Infinix ecosystem.
Let’s get to the cameras now. The Infinix Zero 8 is powered by a 64MP Sony IMX686 primary image sensor with a quad-camera setup on the rear. The 8MP wide-angle, a 2MP depth sensor, and a 2MP macro camera are also in addition to this.
Similarly, inside the cutout, the front of the house has a 48MP primary and an 8MP wide-angle camera. For this study, to evaluate the camera capabilities of the Infinix Zero 8
On the Infinix Zero 8, the audio configuration is nothing to write home about either. It has a single configuration for the bottom-firing speaker and the audio is not that nice.
It sounds flat and the sound does not have enough detail/richness to appreciate it at-all. You can play around with the equalizer or various sound profiles via the pre-installed DTS Sound app.
