Unboxing The Infinix Zero 4 Plus — Infinix’s First 6-Digit-Priced Smartphone — 360° View Included.


  Admit it, the price tag on the Infinix Zero 4 and the Zero 4 Plus probably got you feeling this way:

It’s either the recession caused a lot of havoc, or Infinix restrategized with their premium series by going the 6-digit-way. Whichever way you choose to look at it, you can’t deny the fact that the Zero 4 Plus has got some incredible specs, right?

So, what does it have to offer when it comes to its package, build and design? How about I tell you in 9 points.

1. THE USUAL SUSPECTS PLUS TWO MORE

Unlike the Phantom 6 Plus’s packaging that has a lot of paparazzi, the Infinix Zero 4 Plus is encased in a simple rectangular box.

Plus, you get to see the usual accessories:

However, Infinix added two new accessories — a clear phone case to protect the back of the device and tempered glass screen protector.

This is how it looks with the phone case:

2. AN ALL-METAL BIGGIE

The Zero 4 Plus has a full metal body, combine that with its 5.98-inch screen, and you are looking at a biggie.


3. THE BACK VIEW IS A MAJOR STEP-UP

I have not been a fan of Infinix design for a while now (Excluding the Hot S), but the back view of the Zero 4  Plus looks way better than the Zero 3.

 

All thanks to its antenna bands….

Hi HTC.

… And the Chaffed design which might feel edgy when holding it, but allows you get a good grip as well.

However, the front view still gives off the same Infinix look, nothing much going on there save the Gorilla glass.

 

Oh yeah, you get the on-screen buttons instead of the physical ones.

4. HELLO HYBRID SIM!

With the Zero 4 Plus, you are getting a Hybrid SIM — a choice between having 2 SIM cards and no memory card or 1 SIM card and one memory card.

 

5. IT  IS SLIGHTLY LIGHTER THAN THE PHANTOM 6 PLUS

Although the Infinix Zero 4 Plus is quite bulky in hand, it still feels slightly lighter than the Phantom 6 Plus which weighs about 209g.

Add the back case to it, and you are looking at a lot more weight

 

6. THE iPHONE-INSPIRED GRILLS

At the bottom of the device, you have your USB port — no, it is not a type-C port— and the speaker grills.

Don’t be fooled, though; the Infinix Zero 4 plus has a mono speaker.

 

7. THAT BUMP OF LIFE

The back view houses your fingerprint sensor, the 21MP camera with OIS and Laser Auto-focus.

 

.. AND THE BUMP!

Yup! This song came to mind (Don’t ask me why).

 

Only this time, I don’t think you can consider the bump a sexy one because it might be prone to scratches.

8. THERE IS A NOTIFICATION SENSOR

I always feel the need to make this a big deal because I can’t for the life of me understand why this should be missing from a Smartphone. But Infinix saved me from ranting by including a notification sensor on the Zero 4 Plus.

 

You also have the 13MP front camera with flash.

9. THE USUAL PLACEMENTS

There is the 3.5mm jack on top.

 

While the volume and power buttons stay together.

 

GIF CONCLUSION

A song that describes my first impression with the Zero 4 Plus:

The only difference is that I know what the Zero 4 Plus reminds me of, and I can’t wait to see what the Zero 4 plus has to offer.

 

OVERALL

First impression talk — I think Infinix played safe with the design, but while unboxing I played a little with the device and let’s just say, the Infinix Zero 4 Plus might just be a typical case of don’t judge a book by its “Front view.”

So, stay glued for the full review.

By the way, let me know if you want to see something new, either a comparison or anything.
