The Leap 16 Go, the right choice for surfing the internet?
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.
Leap 16 Go’s really small.A modest 5-inch screen, which on the other hand is easier to fit in a pocket and easier to hold.
That means it’s not practical for internet browsing.Even less good for watching a movie.The primary use of this phone would be to make calls…
In addition, through its Wlan option, you can connect to wifi terminals.This means that the connection will be easier during your internet browsing. This phone is equipped with a GPS chip.Your travels will be facilitated, even abroad.Unless you’re at the bottom of a cave, you’ll be able to know where you are at any given moment.
If having several lines in the same device is essential for you, go ahead.This phone does not have dual SIM.This will force those who travel to think about changing their SIM.
Detail that is missing on this Leap 16 Go is the absence of reinforced glass.In other words, the scratches or the shocks that happen to us all, will inevitably appear.It is a good idea to purchase an adaptable screen protector as a complement.Autonomy is one of the worst features on this model.The 2800 mAh will barely be enough to last a day between calls, texts or games.As a precaution, you may have an external battery available nearby.
In conclusion on battery charging, BlackBerry has not changed anything compared to previous models, which means no fast charge.Yet it has become almost indispensable, due to the speed at which batteries are now draining.
The right choice for watching movies?
The use of the telephone now exceeds that of television.Perfectly designed for our daily needs.You can also listen to continuous music anywhere.Thanks to the ever-increasing access to networks, and with easy-to-use applications, it has become very simple to watch a streaming movie (Netflix, YouTube or Disney) on a phone screen.But not all phones are suitable for this purpose.
We would have liked the Leap 16 Go to have been more powerful on the multimedia side.He’s at the bottom of our ranking.It’s hard to watch a video.And its screen resolution is low.He’ll be more comfortable listening to music.
The on-board technology at the display level is the LCD IPS.The result is less light scattering, resulting in a wider viewing angle and deeper tones.
On the audio side, BlackBerry wanted to do it right.You have an input for the 3.5mm plug of your headphones.
Using its Bluetooth functionality, you can pair your phone with all the devices in your home (speakers, TV…).The sound result is of a good level.
Finally, we deplore the absence of stereo speakers.
Is it suitable for games?
Games are performance consuming.Games, but also applications require batteries.For smooth and responsive rendering on 3D video games, it is necessary to combine a good processor with a good graphics processor.Simply put, the higher these features are, the better your gaming experience will be.
As far as RAM is concerned, this model is lightweight to say the least.This model has 16 GB, which is low.But some of you will need more; that’s why BlackBerry has left a free slot for a memory card.
Please note that in intensive use, the battery may not hold.Unfortunately in the case of this model, it is one of the worst.Its 2800 mAH power will force you to recharge before the end of the day.
It will be necessary to limit the applications installed on this smartphone.A below-average configuration with a reduced screen size of 5 inches.It won’t be easy to read the downloaded documents.You’ll have to force it to read the documents clearly.
Please note that this model does not allow contactless payments.
For audio or video use?
People have been using smartphones for some time now… to take pictures.For a long time, manufacturers have been communicating about the millions of pixels their devices were equipped with.However, this is not the only criterion to be taken into account.The possible retouching via application is also interesting.Generally speaking, BlackBerry has developed a recognized know-how for smartphones.
The company has done the bare minimum in this case.This model thus has only one objective.
The resolution of this model is not very efficient.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 .So photo retouching is not exceptional.The sensor of this Leap 16 Go is of very average quality and will dissuade you from using this smartphone for this kind of exercise.
This device contains only 16 GB of storage space; less than most.Forget about your music and movies, in addition to your many applications.It will be necessary to transfer your contents to other backup spaces very quickly.
The Leap 16 Go, a good choice for the right use
The design of this Leap 16 Go is well done and corresponds to consumer expectations.It’s a very good quality model.And with a contained price tag, it’s finally good.
