Infinix Zero 6 Review in 2020
The Infinix Zero 6 used to be a good phone but in 2020, the Infinix Zero 6 is not worth buying because of its outdated specs. The Zero 6 runs on Android 8 which is an old Android version so you’ll have a compatibility issue with some apps. As at now, there are several better and more recent smartphones in the same price range as the Infinix Zero 6.
