H280S 4 Go for mobility?
The intended use of your future phone is of utmost importance.You will use it to make phone calls, but also to surf and search for information on the internet.
A model that fits in your pocket: the H280S 4 Go.A size of 5 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.Watching movies will be less enjoyable.It’s a model made for telephoning, mainly.
In addition, through its Wlan option, you can connect to wifi terminals.Convenient if you have cut off portability (abroad) and want to stay in touch with your loved ones.This smartphone has GPS.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.
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.This will be convenient for those who travel regularly.
Detail that is missing on this H280S 4 Go is the absence of reinforced glass.No protection against scratches or shocks that can occur during the lifetime of all smartphones.If you decide on this model, remember to use a transparent tempered glass film, adapted to the shape of the screen.
A negative point, however, is the battery capacity.There is only 2000 mAh, which is low for normal use.As a precaution, you may have an external battery available nearby.
In conclusion on battery charging, Energizer 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.It’s become a handy tool.The same goes for listening 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.
Unsurprisingly, this model is not really made for multimedia.He’s not doing as well as most of his competitors.Its screen is not big enough to enjoy a video, let alone a movie.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.The 3.5mm jack input allows the connection of headphones and/or a microphone.
Using its Bluetooth functionality, you can pair your phone with all the devices in your home (speakers, TV…).The result is very pleasant to the ear.
And finally, for the sound, we were surprised not to find the stereo.
The right choice to play online?
For games, you need performance.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.In short, technology and the latest generation of components provide better playability.
Our test shows that this H280S 4 Go is at the top of the rankings.On the processor side, even if it is not always the case, the Quad Core is today almost the minimum.This model has a Mediatek MT6580M (28 nm) processor.A chip that brings fluidity and quality to videos.
As far as RAM is concerned, this model is lightweight to say the least.It’s 4 GB that have been installed, and that’s not much.Knowing that some users need more space, Energizer has provided a free space for an extension.
Please note that in intensive use, the battery may not hold.The endurance of this model is one of the weakest.Its power of 2000 mAH will not allow you to enjoy it all day long.
Performance and good display were expected for the possible applications of this model.unfortunately, it is at a very low reading comfort level.Its entry-level design with a smaller-than-average screen gives a disappointing result.The images are of lower quality, they can sometimes pixelize, and give a final rendering that is painful for the eyes.
And to finish on the application part, we note that the payment function via telephone (the NFC), is not available here.
What about the videos?
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.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.
The features of the camera lens are perfectly connected to the Android system part.This phone offers 1 lenses as standard.
The resolution of this model is not very efficient.A definition in 5 Mp, which is necessarily less good than on top-of-the-range models.However, it does not have HDR technology.
You will limit selfies with this model, because of the poor quality of the rendering.The editing function is out of date.The sensor of this H280S 4 Go is of very average quality and will dissuade you from using this smartphone for this kind of exercise.
This device contains only 4 GB of storage space; less than most.That means you’ll have to make choices between videos, photos and applications.With this amount available, you will need to quickly sort through what you want to keep and delete the rest.
The H280S 4 Go, a good choice for the right use
This H280S 4 Go makes almost any use possible without difficulty.
It’s average, but still a very good product.All in all, a good price/quality ratio.
