Infinix Mobility launched its flagship smartphones for the year 2016, the Infinix Zero 4 (X574) and Infinix Zero 4 Plus following the success it recorded in the Infinix Zero series in the past year. These are the fourth generation members of the series, and both variants offer a massive upgrade to the Zero 3, their predecessor. The smartphones also come with a more powerful processor and a rear camera which has been upgraded with Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS).
In this article, I pit the Infinix Zero 4 against the Infinix Zero 4 Plus. I’m going to compare them according to their specifications (display, design, memory, battery, hardware, software, etc) and when I’m done, I’ll leave you to choose which one is best for you. Enjoy.
Infinix Zero 4 vs Infinix Zero 4 Plus – Device Comparison
Here is a table of contents to make it easier for you to breeze through the article. Click on any of them to jump to the content:
Display & Design
The Infinix Zero 4 sports a 5.5-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080 * 1920 pixels while the Infinix Zero 4 Plus sports a bigger 5.98-inch IPS Display with the same resolution. Both phones also have the 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 3 screen protection against bumps and scratches. In terms of display, the Infinix Zero 4 Plus will be favoured by large screen lovers.
Performance & Storage
For performance, the Infinix Zero 4 features a MediaTek MT6753 chipset but a lesser 1.5GHz octa-core processor. On the other hand, the Infinix Zero 4 Plus packs a powerful deca-core (2.1GHz Dual-core; 1.4GHz quad-core and 1.85GHz quad-core) MediaTek Helio X20 MT6797 processor with Mali-T880 GPU. The Infinix Zero 4 Plus proves to be more powerful than its variant Zero 4.
Furthermore, the Infinix Zero 4 offers 3GB of RAM with 32GB of built-in storage and supports up to 128GB microSD card while the Infinix Zero 4 Plus sports a larger 4GB of RAM, but the same 32GB built-in storage. It also has a dedicated slot for a memory card that can also add an additional 128GB.
The Infinix Zero 4 sports a 16MP rear camera, and at the front, it sports an 8MP camera for selfies while the Infinix Zero 4 Plus comes with a 20.7 MP Camera with a f/2.0 aoerture, Laser Autofocus and Dual LED Flash, plus a 13MP front camera with LED Flash and f/2.2 aperture. Although both have the Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) feature, the Zero 4 Plus offers more in terms of camera functionality.
Battery & Charging
The Infinix Zero 4 packs an impressive 3200mAh non-removable Li-Ion battery with a fast charging feature (Xcharge PE+ 2.0) which offers up to 5 hours talk time for a 10-minute charge, while the Infinix Zero 4 Plus has a more powerful 4000 mAh non-removable battery that also comes with the same fast charging technology.
Both smartphones support 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth connectivity. They support the USB on the go. Both do not have NFC capability, so apparently they tie in terms of connectivity.
Software & Hardware
The two smartphones run on the Android 6.0 operating system. They both have a fingerprint scanner but neither has an iris scanner. However, the Infinix Zero 4 Plus comes with a better version of the XOS Chameleon Skin that can give you different wallpaper and graphics.
Conclusion – Infinix Zero 4 vs Infinix Zero 4 Plus
It is obvious that Infinix Mobility is deliberately trying to offer more in order to justify the word ‘Plus’ in the name of the Infinix Zero 4 Plus by upgrading some of the features that already come with the Zero 4, and this they have done impressively. It is therefore not surprising to see that the Zero 4 Plus costs more. I would totally go for the Zero 4 Plus without even thinking about the extra cost that comes with it.
So, which do you think is the best between the Infinix Zero 4 and Infinix Zero 4 Plus based on our comparison above?
