Infinix Zero Ultra Review

Infinix mainly focused on budget-level phones, until now. The company has now launched its first premium phone in India by the Infinix Zero Ultra. I have the device with me and I have been using it for a couple of days.

It packs a MediaTek Dimensity 920 chipset which offers decent performance, along with a 200MP triple camera setup to take good photos. You also get a 120Hz AMOLED display which is smooth and beautiful for everyday use.

All that is good, but those aren’t the main highlight of the phone. The real thing is the 180W fast charging support. I will test that out as well. So let’s get started with this Infinix Zero Ultra review without any further ado.

Infinix Zero Ultra Price in India and Variants

The Infinix Zero Ultra has been launched in India in only a single variant. It comes at a price of Rs. 29,999 for 8GB RAM and 256GB storage variant.

The phone is available in two different colour options: Coslight Silver and Genesis Noir. You can buy the phone on Flipkart starting December 25.

  • Chipset: MediaTek Dimensity 920
  • RAM & ROM: 8GB RAM 256GB Storage

  • Dimensions: 165.5 x 74.5 x 8.7 mm

Infinix Zero Ultra Design and Build

This phone does have a flagship appearance overall. Curved displays look nice, whether you like them or not, and I really like the shimmery silver back. The phone’s overall appearance and build quality make it appear to be much more expensive than it is.

Infinix Zero Ultra Design

The camera has a noticeable bump, but the bundled case will protect the camera lenses and save you from wobbling. If you don’t like this, there’s also the Genesis Noir variant, which has a leather finish with a glass back.

Even though the glass back panel has a shiny finish, the ripple pattern of the Coslight Silver variant makes it resistant to smudges and gives the ZERO ULTRA a distinctive appearance. On the other hand, it features a plastic frame which is understandable considering the company had to cut some corners to keep the price low.

Because of its 213 gram weight, the Infinix Zero Ultra feels a little bulky, and it takes some getting used to. Since both sides are curved, holding it with one hand is still very comfortable. It makes it appear slimmer than it is and is very simple to hold.

Infinix Zero Ultra slimness

One feature that is missing from the device is an IP rating for dust and water resistance. It’s unfortunate that the device lacks an IP rating, and this is likely where the brand made some compromises to reduce the cost of the phone.

The right side of the phone has a power button and volume rockers, both of which are easily reachable. The left side is totally clean. The top side has the secondary mic and secondary speaker while the bottom houses the type-C port, primary speaker, primary mic and SIM card tray.

Infinix Zero Ultra Camera

I was looking forward to testing out the cameras on the Infinix Zero Ultra since it features a 200MP primary camera. The other two lenses include a 13MP ultra-wide camera and a 2MP depth camera. The punch hole on the front houses a 32MP camera for taking selfies.

That 200MP lens is one of the main selling points of the Infinix Zero Ultra, and it doesn’t disappoint for the vast majority part. The 200MP performs admirably in most scenarios and can compete with phones costing significantly more. The photos are vibrant, detailed, sharp, and have a wide dynamic range.

Infinix Zero Ultra Camera

The same level of performance is maintained in low-light conditions. The Infinix Zero Ultra’s super night mode is outstanding. It takes some nice low-light shots.

Using the camera’s 200MP mode increases the amount of detail visible in a photograph, but it also increases the photo size to about 70MB, which quickly depletes your storage.

The 200MP also requires you to hold the phone steadily for approximately 2 seconds before it processes and finalises the photo. I’m not convinced that the MediaTek Dimensity 920 was the best processor for such a stressful task.

The ultra-wide-angle camera’s details aren’t as good, but they’re definitely much better than the photos we’d see on phones with the standard 8MP lens used in many phones.

The portrait mode is a little bit too aggressive; I had trouble using it as it kept blurring a portion of the subject’s face.

Infinix Zero Ultra back Camera

The selfie camera is a 32-megapixel camera, which is much better than the selfie cameras that I have seen on other Infinix smartphones. The selfies capture a lot of details with good clarity and sharpness. The skin tones were also close to natural.

Talking about video recording, the main camera can record 4K videos at 30fps and 1080p videos and 30/60fps, while the front camera can only record 1080p videos at 30fps. The 4K videos were detailed and crisp with good colours however the output was shaky even though the main camera has OIS.

Infinix Zero Ultra Battery and Charging

The Infinix Zero Ultra packs a 4500mAh battery which is a little less than the 5000mAh mark that is generally seen in this price range. Nonetheless, the phone offers a good battery backup. You can easily get one day of battery backup if you are a casual user.

I got about 5-6 hours of screen on time. My usage involved taking photos, playing games and watching some videos on YouTube. However, if you are a heavy user who likes to play games all day long, you would need to plug in the charger twice in a day.

But no worries, because Infinix has given the fastest charging speed in its price segment. Getting late to head out and having a dead phone? No problem. Plug in the 180W fast charger and you’ll have enough juice on your phone to get you going for the whole day.

The 180W fast charger takes just 15 minutes to fully charge the phone from 0 to 100 per cent. A quick charge of just 5 minutes will juice the battery to more than 40 per cent, which is really impressive.

Note that you need to enable fusion mode in the battery settings to achieve such charging speeds. Yes, the phone gets a little hot during this time. One thing that Infinix Zero Ultra lacks is wireless charging support. It disappoints me to see a 30K phone coming with no wireless charging.

Infinix Zero Ultra Display

The Infinix Zero Ultra features an FHD+ 6.8-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels. It’s a curved display with 120Hzrefersh rate and a peak brightness of 1000 nits. It uses the auto-refresh rate by default, but you can change it to 60Hz or 120Hz manually in the display settings.

Infinix Zero Ultra Display

The phone gets bright enough for both indoor and outdoor use. I used it on even sunny days and didn’t face any issues. The display quality is quite good, and it is without a doubt, the best panel we’ve seen on an Infinix phone.

In contrast to the AMOLED displays on other Infinix smartphones, it has more vivid colours and deeper blacks. Because the screen is so sharp, the viewing experience becomes completely immersive.

Infinix Zero Ultra Display quality

You can enjoy doing a lot of stuff on it, including watching movies and web series, scrolling Instagram or other social media apps and gaming. It also has Widevine L1 support, so you can watch high quality content on OTT platforms like Netflix and Prime Videos. I really enjoyed using the phone because of its ultra-smoothness and curved design.

Not to forget, the bezels on the top and bottom are also very thin, so you get the most out of the display.

Infinix Zero Ultra Performance

Performance is where Infinix could have done a little better, and I wish it did. The Infinix Zero Ultra is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 920 chipset which is paired with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. You can further expand the RAM virtually by 5GB using internal memory.

Infinix Zero Ultra Performance

MediaTek Dimensity 920 is a decent mid-range chipset but can be seen on phones that cost much less than Infinix Zero Ultra. Infinix should have gone with a better processor like MediaTek Dimensity 8100 or 1200.

Well, even though it’s not a flagship chipset, you won’t face any trouble in performing day to day activities. I was using the phone for doing multiple tasks and I did not notice any lags or shutters. However, the RAM management is not the best I have seen. The apps refreshed most of the time when I opened them back after a while.

Talking about gaming, you can play high-end games at medium to high settings. I tried playing some demanding games like Apex Legends Mobile and Call of Duty Mobile. Well, even though the games ran smoothly and were playable, there were some frame drops every now and then (high settings), as expected from a mid-range chipset.

Infinix Zero Ultra gaming Performance

You can lower down the graphic settings to get a smoother gaming experience. In one sentence, I would not recommend this phone to someone who is looking for a gaming phone. After playing for about half an hour, I noticed that the back panel was starting to get warm.

Infinix Zero Ultra Software and UI

Infinix Zero Ultra runs on XOS 12 skin which is based on Android 12. Still launching phones with Android 12 at the end of 2022….doesn’t make sense. The UI is packed with features however it is not the most simple to navigate. But anyways, the UI feels smooth, thanks to the high refresh rate.

Infinix Zero Ultra Software

We get features like Peek Proof, Smart Panel, Game Mode, Social Turbo, Lightning Multiwindow, Memfusion, and more. That’s a lot of features, right? But you know what’s even more? Bloatware! The phone is packed with third-party apps. And not just that, they bombard you with spammy notifications all day. I had to disable them in the settings as it gets really annoying.

By default, you can navigate the phone using gestures. Like swiping up on the home screen will open the app drawer. Swiping down from the left will show the control centre and doing the same from the right will open the notification shade.

Infinix has only promised one major software update which means it will get the Android 13 update but after that….no one knows. I would suggest Infinix to move towards a more stock-like Android experience – more simple, less trash.

Infinix Zero Ultra UI

Infinix Zero Ultra Audio, Connectivity, Biometrics

Infinix Zero Ultra packs a stereo speaker setup, one located on the top while the other is located at the bottom. The audio quality is good and clear but it lacks bass. The volume gets pretty loud but most of it comes from the bottom speaker. Well, that’s not a deal breaker but what might be is the lack of a 3.5mm audio jack, for some users.

Moving on, the Infinix Zero Ultra comes with 5G connectivity and support for 12 5G bands. These include n1, n3, n5, n7, n8, n20, n28, n38, n40, n41, n77, and n78. Other connectivity features include Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, and GPS.

Infinix Zero Ultra connectivity

You get an in-display fingerprint sensor as well as face unlock for biometrics. I tested out both and they were fast and pretty accurate.


The Infinix Zero Ultra is a good phone for its price, but there are some ifs and buts. Infinix has offered a premium design and has tried to offer features to match the overall vibe of the phone. The phone packs a ton of good features, like the 180W fast charging and 120Hz display.

The hardware you get is really capable. The performance is good for everyday use and will suffice for gaming. The main camera took some really nice shots in daylight. However, I feel it’s not up to the mark of a 200MP camera.

The battery performance is decent and the charging speed is just really fast. At the same time, the UI is far from good. There’s a lot of work needed to be done by the brand in XOS. At last, I’m not sure if spending 30K on an Infinx phone would be a wise decision considering you only get a good display with super fast charging speeds.
