The Infinix zero 3 X552 succeeds the highly successful Infinix Zero 2 and it’s also the latest addition to the ‘Zero’ series by the Hong Kong-based smartphone maker. The phone definitely has a whole lot of potentials and for a phone that was released December last year to still be highly sought after this year 2016, then i think it has passed the test of time and also lived well enough to the hype. Please read on for the review about the device….
According to users, there are 2 issues with the phone which are:
(1) Fast draining battery
(2) Under heavy usage, phone heats up slightly
The above mentioned cons i believe isn’t much of a problem as if the phone is left for a little while, then it cools off.
For the positives, the phone sports an amazing SONY IMX230 CMOS sensor which exceeds expectations with an enhanced light sensitivity and a 20.7 megapixel still photo resolution. It is combined with a 6P Largan lens to retain vivid details even when enlarging or cropping. It also features a wonderful user interface (UI) and performs beautifully well. The pros will be talked more on below.
BODY , DESIGN & DISPLAY
The Infinix zero 3 X552 which is almost similar in design to the Infinix zero made in 2014 comes with a 5.5 inches screen and has a display resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels and 401 pixels per inch (PPI). The camera is capable of shooting 4K videos and comes with features such as HDR, voice and touch capture, gesture shot, slow motion . The front camera has 5MP resolution with LED flash. Good enough for your selfies. It is sleek and may not be too comfortable to hold for long due to its sharp edges. The whole phone is covered with corning gorilla glass which also males it scratch proof. The volume and power buttons are on the right side and the earpiece jack is located at the top while the charging port is at the bottom just like most phones have. With this phone, you are sure to experience greater clarity on your gaming and videos with 178 degrees large viewing angle.The sound quality is also superb.
SOFTWARE & HARDWARE
The Infinix zero 3 X552 runs on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop laced with the beautiful Infinix XUI (X User Interface). The User Interface is a huge improvement on the Zero 2 with smaller icons and revamped notifications tray.
