The E500 8 Go, enough for internet use?
The issue of mobility is important when it comes to a smartphone.If for you, a phone is just for making calls, you probably won’t need a smartphone.
That E500 8 Go looks really small.Indeed, with its 5.0 inches, it is one of the smallest models currently available on the market.
It will be more difficult to click on this small area.Don’t imagine watching a movie in good conditions either.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’ll appreciate not having to ask for directions anymore.Unless you’re at the bottom of a cave, you’ll be able to know where you are at any given moment.
Some smartphones can hide more than one.In other words, having several subscriptions with the same device.That is, several operators at the same time.It can be interesting when you travel abroad.
No protection on the screen of this E500 8 Go.It’s hard to predict that a device will never fall down.
A possible solution at a lower cost is the addition of a transparent tempered glass film, without altering the screen’s tactile reactivity.
A negative point, however, is the battery capacity.There is only 2000 mAh, which is low for normal use.This requires organization and always having a back-up charger available.
And since Energizer did not consider it useful to put a fast charge on this model, we will have to wait.Too bad, it’s a very interesting feature today.
The right model for multimedia use?
Smartphones have become the new televisions.Perfectly designed for our daily needs.You can also simply listen to music.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.However, the first smartphone that comes along is not necessarily going to fit.
This is not a model designed for multimedia.It is one of the worst in this area.An 5.0 -inch screen with overly vivid colors.A resolution which is moreover in 480 x 854.At the limit, it will be suitable for listening to music.
Energizer has also designed this product for audio use.You have an input for the 3.5mm plug of your headphones.
Bluetooth technology will allow you to listen to music with connected devices.The sound result is of a good level.
On the sound side, we find that there are no stereo speakers.
The right model to play with?
Smartphone games now require power.This implies that the batteries must be able to keep up.For smooth and responsive rendering on 3D video games, it is necessary to combine a good processor with a good graphics processor.In other words, the power of the technical components is essential to enjoy the game phases.
Our test shows that this E500 8 Go is at the top of the rankings.First-class components selected by the manufacturer.The processor, is a Mediatek MT6580M (28 nm).A chip that brings fluidity and quality to videos.
As far as RAM is concerned, you’re at the minimum required on a smartphone.You will only have 8 GB for your videos and music.Knowing that some users need more space, Energizer has provided a free space for an extension.
In case you play a lot, you’re going to strain the drums.The result is at the bottom of our ranking.The power of 2000 mAH will require you to recharge during the day.
We would have appreciated a higher level for displaying applications.Reading comfort where the display is not up to scratch.That’s gonna make it harder to read.The images are of lower quality, they can sometimes pixelize, and give a final rendering that is painful for the eyes.
Finally, it should be noted that NFC (contactless payment) is not possible with this smartphone.
Analysis of Audio and Video functions
Having become an essential use of smartphones, the photo function has made great strides since the first generations.They have millions of pixels that capture details perfectly.But this characteristic is not everything.The possible retouching via application is also interesting.Generally speaking, Energizer has developed a recognized know-how for smartphones.
This smartphone has the camera part whose functionalities are supported by the Android OS .And for an even better result, this phone contains 1 lenses.
The screen resolution of this E500 8 Go is among the lowest on the market.An image resolution of 5 Mp which will give a mediocre result.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 E500 8 Go is good for telephoning, but not for retouching images.
This device contains only 8 GB of storage space; less than most.Not enough to back up all your video files or music.With this amount available, you will need to quickly sort through what you want to keep and delete the rest.
The E500 8 Go in conclusion
The design of this E500 8 Go is well done and corresponds to consumer expectations.It’s a very good quality model.With a well-placed price, it’s a wise choice.
