The main advantage of a smartphone is to be connected everywhere and therefore to be mobile.You will use it to make phone calls, but also to surf and search for information on the internet.
Saphir 24F 16 Go’s really small.A size of 5.0 inches that would have been normal in the early days of smartphones, but not anymore.
Obviously with this size, it is not easy to surf the net.Forget the videos, too.It’s a model made for telephoning, mainly.
In addition, it natively offers Wifi technology.You will be able to enjoy quality web access, anywhere, even on the other side of the world.There’s GPS on this phone.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.

In terms of autonomy, this phone is in the top of the battery ranking with an on-board power of 4000 mAH.Convenient when you’re travelling or simply away from the office.
On the question of loading, Archos has done in the economy, that is to say without the fast charge.Yet it has become almost indispensable, due to the speed at which batteries are now draining.
Is this device good for listening to music and watching videos?
More and more of us watch our phones at the expense of our TVs every day.It’s a device that is always at hand.You can also listen to continuous music anywhere.They are quite powerful and quite connected by streaming video.However, not all smartphones will do the trick.
With a low reading comfort, the Saphir 24F 16 Go is not designed for multimedia.He’s one of the worst in the business.Its screen is not big enough to enjoy a video, let alone a movie.A resolution which is moreover in 720 x 1280.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 light of the backlight varies according to the orientation of the pixels allowing a wider viewing angle.
On the audio side, Archos wanted to do it right.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.The sound result is of a good level.
On the sound side, we find that there are no stereo speakers.
The Archos smartphone for online or local games
Smartphone games now require power.The same applies to the ever-increasing number of applications that reduce battery capacity.On 3D games, the right processor and quality graphics chip ensure smooth rendering.In other words, the power of the technical components is essential to enjoy the game phases.
What came out of our tests is that the Saphir 24F 16 Go is low in power.The components are starting to date (Mediatek MT6737VWT processor), and the quality is less good.The visual result is below other smartphones in this category.
A smartphone with RAM, but the bare minimum.This model has 16 GB, which is low.Knowing that some users need more space, Archos has provided a free space for an extension.
Several hours spent playing inevitably impacts the battery.Here you have the best in the market.It has a 4000 mAh battery.With a nice design, it’s a smartphone that you like to hold in your hands.
It will be necessary to limit the applications installed on this smartphone.unfortunately, it is at a very low reading comfort level.This is an entry-level model: 294* pixels per inch.The images are of lower quality, they can sometimes pixelize, and give a final rendering that is painful for the eyes.
Please note that this model does not allow contactless payments.
For audio or video use?
Over time, smartphones have become almost as good as cameras.The millions of pixels of the sensors make it possible to make high quality photos.The ability to stabilize at the time of shooting or the Burst mode are also important points.Editing and sharing options should also be analyzed.Archos has a long history of designing quality products.
Little progress has been made by Archos.There is indeed only one lens on this phone.
Don’t expect to see a nice picture on this Saphir 24F 16 Go; a lower photo resolution than its competitors.A definition in 8 Mp, which is necessarily less good than on top-of-the-range models.However, it does not have HDR technology.
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.This Saphir 24F 16 Go is good for telephoning, but not for retouching images.
This phone offers very little space: 16 GB; this is the smallest phone available.That means you’ll have to make choices between videos, photos and applications.To put it plainly, you will have to make room regularly or your memory will be saturated.
