What does mobility look like?
The intended use of your future phone is of utmost importance. Beyond its telephone function, we expect it to be as good for surfing the internet and usable when travelling.
That Note 8 16 GB looks really small.A size of 5.5 inches that would have been normal in the early days of smartphones, but not anymore.
It will be more difficult to click on this small area.Forget the videos, too.All in all, perfect for a phone call.
In addition, it natively offers Wifi technology.This means that the connection will be easier during your internet browsing.This smartphone comes with GPS.You know where you stand.Unless you’re at the bottom of a cave, you’ll be able to know where you are at any given moment.
This on model, you can have more than one phone number.This means that you can manage several packages at the same time.This will even be possible with competing operators.This feature will be useful for travellers among you, who will be able to integrate a prepaid SIM card of the country they are in, without having to remove the main card.
Detail that is missing on this Note 8 16 GB is the absence of reinforced glass.No protection against scratches or shocks that can occur during the lifetime of all smartphones.A possible solution at a lower cost is the addition of a transparent tempered glass film, without altering the screen’s tactile reactivity.
Unfortunately, on the battery side it’s not so good.With only 2700 mAh, it will be difficult to last a full day.You’ll think about having an external battery backup nearby.
In conclusion on battery charging, Ulefone has not changed anything compared to previous models, which means no fast charge.Too bad, it’s a very interesting feature today.
Interesting for the videos?
More and more of us watch our phones at the expense of our TVs every day.A handy device for watching videos.You can also simply listen to music.Access to the network allows you to watch a video stream whenever you feel like it.However, not all smartphones will do the trick.
With a low reading comfort, the Note 8 16 GB is not designed for multimedia.He’s at the bottom of our ranking.The 5.5-inch screen is poorly suited for exercise.And its screen resolution is low.However, you can use it to listen to your music playlist.
The screen of this model has been switched to LCD IPS (In-Plane Switching).The result is less light scattering, resulting in a wider viewing angle and deeper tones.
Ulefone sought to improve the audio experience.This model has a 3.5mm jack input, and allows your phone to play good quality music.
To transfer the sound from the phone, you will have the option via bluetooth.A technology that ensures quality sound.
On the sound side, we find that there are no stereo speakers.
The Ulefone smartphone for online or local games
For games, you need performance.This implies that the batteries must be able to keep up.The processor and graphics chip must also be of high quality to make the image fluid.In other words, the power of the technical components is essential to enjoy the game phases.
In the end, we found that the power of this Note 8 16 GB is below its competitors.The components are starting to date (Mediatek MT6580 (28 nm) processor), and the quality is less good.The colors are medium and the images are not fluid.
In terms of storage memory, it’s in the worst.This phone only defaults to 16 GB; that’s probably fair.Knowing that some users need more space, Ulefone has provided a free space for an extension.
Please note that in intensive use, the battery may not hold.Unfortunately in the case of this model, it is one of the worst.With a power of 2700 mAH, it will need to be recharged during the day.
Performance and good display were expected for the possible applications of this model.unfortunately, it is at a very low reading comfort level.That’s gonna make it harder to read.The precision of the image, the colours; so many elements that will limit your desire to read on this phone.
Please note that this model does not allow contactless payments.
Efficiency for audio and video
People have been using smartphones for some time now… to take pictures.The millions of pixels of the sensors make it possible to make high quality photos.But this characteristic is not everything.Being able to retouch the obtained photos is appreciated.Ulefone has long been designing smartphones with top quality photo sensors.
On the other hand it’s a little light for the camera part.There is indeed only one lens on this phone.
If you are very attached to the quality of the photos, you may be disappointed by this Note 8 16 GB.With a definition of only 5 Mp, you will have lower quality images.As far as selfies are concerned, this model is devoid of the technology that embellishes the photos .Also, it is difficult to retouch images properly.The sensor of this Note 8 16 GB is of very average quality and will dissuade you from using this smartphone for this kind of exercise.
This phone offers very little space: 16 GB; this is the smallest phone available.Forget about your music and movies, in addition to your many applications.With this amount available, you will need to quickly sort through what you want to keep and delete the rest.
Finally, the Note 8 16 GB…
This Note 8 16 GB is not good for all uses.It can be a temporary choice or a temporary fix.In conclusion, it’s a pricey choice.
