Is the Z61 Pro 16 GB compatible for nomadic use?
The issue of mobility is important when it comes to a smartphone. Mobility for surfing the internet, even on holiday.
That Z61 Pro 16 GB looks really small.A modest 5.45-inch screen, which on the other hand is easier to fit in a pocket and easier to hold.
It will be more difficult to click on this small area.Even less good for watching a movie.All in all, perfect for a phone call.
The device is equipped with Wifi.This allows you to easily have a connection with a comfortable speed. This phone is equipped with a GPS chip.Your travels will be facilitated, even abroad.Unless you’re in the middle of the desert.
Several Sims can be activated on this smartphone.This means that it is possible to have several active subscriptions in the device.This will even be possible with competing operators.It can be interesting when you travel abroad.
Detail that is missing on this Z61 Pro 16 GB is the absence of reinforced glass.It’s hard to predict that a device will never fall down.
It is a good idea to purchase an adaptable screen protector as a complement.Autonomy is one of the worst features on this model.With only 3100 mAh, it will be difficult to last a full day.This requires organization and always having a back-up charger available.
On the question of loading, Lava has done in the economy, that is to say without the fast charge.This is very useful when the smartphone battery is empty and you’re in a hurry.
The right choice for watching movies?
More and more of us watch our phones at the expense of our TVs every day.Perfectly designed for our daily needs.You can also simply listen to music.Because of the power of smartphones and their connectivity, you can watch whatever you want.However, not all smartphones will do the trick.
We would have liked the Z61 Pro 16 GB to have been more powerful on the multimedia side.It is one of the worst in this area.The 5.45-inch screen is poorly suited for exercise.A resolution which is moreover in 720 x 1440.At the limit, it will be suitable for listening to music.
For the audio part, Lava wanted to do well.A 3.5mm input to connect your headphones or speakers.
With its OS version installed, the phone supports wireless Hi-Fi audio via Bluetooth.A technology that ensures quality sound.
And, on the nice but missing functionality side, we have the stereo speakers; the mono sound is shallower.
The right model to play with?
Smartphone games now require power.Batteries are put to the test every day due to the use of mobile internet and applications.The processor and graphics chip must also be of high quality to make the image fluid.In short, the more advanced the components are, the better the gameplay will be.
Our tests put this Z61 Pro 16 GB at the bottom of the list in terms of power.Which makes it look just passable.
A smartphone with RAM, but the bare minimum.You will only have 16 GB for your videos and music.And because Lava predicted that some of you would be demanding gamers, you have the ability to expand the available memory.
Please note that in intensive use, the battery may not hold.The endurance of this model is one of the weakest.The power of 3100 mAH will require you to recharge during the day.
Performance and good display were expected for the possible applications of this model.Reading comfort where the display is not up to scratch.It won’t be easy to read the downloaded documents.You’ll have to force it to read the documents clearly.
And to finish on the application part, we note that the payment function via telephone (the NFC), is not available here.
Efficiency for audio and video
People have been using smartphones for some time now… to take pictures.The reason being related to the millions of pixels they are equipped with.However, this is not the only criterion to be taken into account.Editing and sharing options should also be analyzed.Generally speaking, Lava 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.It’s not the best device for making selfies.So photo retouching is not exceptional.The sensor of this Z61 Pro 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.Not enough to back up all your video files or music.To put it plainly, you will have to make room regularly or your memory will be saturated.
