It is here at last!
It has been a year since the Infinix Zero 3 (Zerology) was released and now its replacement, the Infinix Zero 4, is here at last.
For the first time in the life cycle of the Zero series, Infinix mobility also released a more advanced version of their flagship device, the Infinix Zero 4 Plus.
The much anticipated Infinix Zero 4 and its twin, the Zero 4 Plus were launched in Lagos on November 16, 2016 in preparation for the Jumia black Friday 2016 sales.
The zero 4 sports a massive 16 Megapixels rear camera alongside an 8 Megapixels front camera.
The Zero 4 plus is even better: 13 Megapixels front camera plus a 20.7 Megapixels rear camera.
So, how much of an improvement over the 3 is the 4? Our Infinix Zero 4 review brings you all the juicy detail.
Tighten your belts as we dive into details in this Infinix Zero 4 review.
- Optical Image Stabilization
- Fingerprint Sensor
- Premium metal design
- Non-removable Battery
- Camera downgrade on the Zero 4
So, What’s special About The Infinx Zero 4 & Zero 4 Plus
Infinx Zero 4 review: Design
Compared to the Zero 3, the Zero 4 has a lot more curves and a metal frame which gives it that premium look and feel that reminds you of the iPhone.
The Infinix Zero 4 sports a 5.5-inch IPS LCD touchscreen and a full HD display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920p(440ppi).
On the other side, the Infinix Zero 4 plus belongs in the phablet market with its 5.98-inch display.
Both phones are better protected against scratch and drops thanks to the reinforced Corning Gorilla Glass 4.
At the top of the devices, we have the 3.5mm earpiece slot right at the center.
The front of the devices sports the front camera, front flashlight, and a call sensor.
The function keys are present at the bottom of the screen, represented by dots.
On the right side, we have the volume keys and powers button as well as the SIM jacket(Dual sim slot).
On the Left side, the memory card jacket sits comfortably.
You will find the speakers, mic and microUSB port at the bottom of the phones.
Sited at the back is the fingerprint sensor just below the camera and the laser focus LED flash light.
The back covers of these devices are non-removable.
Infinix Zero 4 review: SOFTWARE
The Zero 4 & zero 4 plus will hit the store with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. This is probably the weakest link in the Zero 4 specs.
We were expecting it to ship with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
The new OS will be supported by the Infinix XOS user interface that adds that unique touch to the Android Os.
Moreover, the Infinix XOS has been tipped as one of cleanest, smoothest and easily customizable user interface to run on an android device.
INFINIX ZERO 4 PICTURES
The new flagship devices are likely to keep the competitors away due to their premium design. The only look alike phone in the market is the Tecno Phantom 6.

Infinix zero 4 review: HARDWARE & MEMORY
Be ready to experience an amazingly fast speed with the 64-bit Octa-core CPU running alongside 3GB of RAM.
The Zero 4 will process data faster and deliver a more power-efficient performance than Zero 3. It has a MediaTek Helios X20 chipset inside with an octa-core clocked at 2.3GHz compared to the MediaTek Helios X10 on the Zero 3.
In addition, it ships with a preinstalled internal memory of 32GB to hold all your documents and multimedia files.
And a memory card slot that can power an additional 128GB external storage.
INFINIX ZERO 4 review: CAMERA
This is the real deal.
The most important thing is that the front camera of the Infinix Zero 4 has been upgraded to 8 Megapixels.
The Zero 4 allows you to capture selfies that include more friends, more detail, and more environment with the 8-megapixel
front facing camera equipped with panoramic selfie functionality, f/2.2 lens, and front-facing flash.
However, the rear camera now sports a 16 Megapixels camera compared to the 20.7 Megapixels on the Zero 3. But there is more to it.
The Infinix Zero 4 has now been improved with an impressive optical image stabilization (OIS) technology.
The OIS helps to prevent hand shake and low light blurring that often ruin the perfect shot.
Also, the 16-megapixel rear camera comes with 4X Sharper Zoom and f/2.0 lens, which will allow you to capture important moments with surprising clarity and detail, even when standing at a distance.
Infinix Zero 4 review: Battery
The Infinix Zero 4 sports a non-removable 3,200mAh battery with fast charging and ultra power saving capabilities while the Infinix Zero 4 plus has a 4,000mAH battery.
The octa-core processor with media Tek chipset helps to save the battery life on the devices.
Infinix mobility has iterated that you can charge the mobile from zero to 100% in approximately 1 hour 30 minutes.
