Infinix Zero 5: The Most Stylish And Powerful Smartphone in the Market

The Infinix Zero 5 is definitely the most stylish and powerful mid-range smartphone I have ever seen. However that’s not all, in all-purpose, it has everything necessary to cap itself as the best smartphone in the market. You might wish to know the process of selecting best cell phone here.

This Infinix phone similar to the Tecno Phantom 8, offers an excellent performance; extremely good dual cameras; an extended battery life; MicroSD card slot and the new Type-C port.

However, this phone lack wireless charging and water resistance as found in Galaxy S8 and Honor 9. These features have been employed by various company such Samsung, OnePlus, Gionee among others. In addition, this smartphone does not have the trending face recognition technology and iris scanner as an option to the fingerprint scanner.

The fingerprint reader impairs the experience because it is located in a place not viable. It requires you to stretch your finger in order to touch the scanner sensor. This might be difficult because of the size of the phone being 6-inch.

Generally, the Infinix Zero 5 is a perfect cell phone that could be a multi-purpose device, but its fingerprint reader drastically impacts its daily use and is such a vital component that even smartphone that cost less than $200 can provide with better unlocking experience.

The Infinix Zero 5 (along with the Infinix Zero 5 Pro) is Infinix’s best smartphone. In addition, is an absolute cell phone than the LG G6, HTC U11, Sony Xperia XZ Premium and One Plus 5.

The put together features, performance and functions make it the complete smartphone today and one of the best you can get for yourself.

If you felt that the LG G6 had no bezels or edges, the Infinix Zero 5 (just like the Zero 5 Pro) will astonish you.

The top and bottom bezels are even smaller and their curved screen (which also has curved corners) makes it look impressive.

The smooth screen is optimized for a sleek touching experience and designed with anti-scratch abilities that make your phone’s screen always appear new. It also gets better with screen surface tension that reaches some 700 Mpa and has strong collision resistance capacity.

With a diamond cutting edge and 28 points CCD detect technology; the Infinix Zero 5 is crafted with a smooth design and elegant metal texture. The 3.28 mm side length reflects our pursuit of exquisite artistry while the Bordeaux red reflects its passion for improvement.

The back of this cell phone is an elegant metal body with a metal frame, but this time, Infinix apply the symmetrical design just introduced in this Zero 5 to allow the back look nice while holding it in your hand.

At the bottom, the cell phone comes with Type-C USB port, a 3.5mm headphone jack and speaker. On the right edge are the physical button to turn it on and couple with the volume button and the SIM card slots.

Even though this does not sound so bad, if Smartphones like the LG G6 and Google Pixel could fix their fingerprint reader on the back, the problem here is that, the Infinix Zero 5 fingerprint reader is located at the centre in the back of the phone which might require you to stretch your finger before touching it (for those with short finger considering its size).

Unlock Zero 5: Your Weak Point

The fingerprint reader of the Infinix Zero 5 makes it really hard to unlock the cell phone for those with a short finger. Eventually, you will get familiar with this little problem, but it shouldn’t discourage you from buying this phone.

Unfortunately, there is no any alternative security of locking your smartphone except the pattern and the stylish smartphone does not come with iris reader or facial recognition based on their presentation on 14th of November, 2017 by their product director Vance Zuo in Dubai.

Of course, the Zero 5 still offers the capacity to unlock it using a pattern on the screen and a PIN or password, but these methods are much less convenient than what a conventional fingerprint reader offers.

The Infinix Zero 5 runs Android Nougat with the company’s new custom interface “XOS 3”.

Generally, the new custom interface is very similar to what we saw on Infinix Note pro, but this latest upgrade comes with more functions. This implies that the interface gives main concern to the white background of the settings and notifications.

By default, the Infinix Zero 5 is configured with an FHD + resolution (1,920 x 1,080 pixels).

However, the fingerprint reader can be configured to detect your gestures, allowing you to open or close the notifications panel if you slide from the top down or vice versa.

Infinix XOS 3: The Interface with More Security in Mind

XOS will personalize your mobile experience while also decreasing power consumption as found in Note 4 and Note 4 pro. But this time around, Infinix introduced the upgrade version which is XOS 3.

In our day to day usage, this Infinix smartphone is very fluid, even when you have many apps running at the same time. Navigating the screens and menus and opening apps are something that is achieved without problems; the same when you use it to play video games like FIFA Mobile and NBA Live.

That said, it seems to me that Infinix Zero 5 could reduce the duration of some animations a bit to offer more fluid experience.

Battery life: Very good and no bursts – so far
