So let’s find out whether the newly launched Infinix Note 30 5G is worth buying or if it’s just another 5G smartphone.
Is it Worth Buying Infinix Note 30 5G
Yes, the Infinix Note 30 5G is worth buying because it offers a balanced Mediatek Dimensity 6080 SoC, 45W charging support, 14 5G bands, stereo JBL speakers, and even NFC support which is rare to see at Rs 14999 price tag.
However, the Infinix Note 30 5G comes with lots of bloatware that can be uninstalled but it also has ads that can’t be disabled 100%.
The cameras are also not that great but for the price of Rs 14999, it’s not the worst as Infinix is offering 45W charging support and 14 5G Bands.

So that being said, let me show some of the reasons to skip the Infinix Note 30 5G.
Reasons to Not Buy Infinix Note 30 5G
- Filled with bloatware.
- Ads in the UI.
- The cameras are not the best.
- All the camera sensors suffer a bit under low light conditions.
- Plastic Build.
- Screen brightness is not the highest.
- Only One OS update is promised.
- XOS has lots of unnecessary features that can be overwhelming for some users.
- The front and even rear cameras need lots of optimizations.
- It does have a 120Hz LCD display but it can be a deal breaker for those users who wanted an AMOLED panel.
Now, the cameras are not the worst or the best. It’s below average that gets the job done. The video quality is not perfect either, it takes more of whiter and saturated videos.

The XOS is improved but it’s not perfect either. It has lots of bloatware and even ads which won’t give you the best software experience.
Also, I didn’t find any issue with the LCD panel but still, if you wanted an AMOLED panel then you have to go with other options where you will lose features like 45W charging, 120Hz refresh rate, or even 5G support.
The Infinix Note 30 5G is not a perfect smartphone but it does offer features that users will get attracted like 45W charging, 5G support, or even NFC support. The cameras are not the best but it gets the job done while the ads in the UI might annoy you.
For those are asking, yes, the phone does have support for Gcam.
