This Folder 2 8 GB is not good for all uses.This model is very far from the top of the range, and may eventually meet the need for a first phone for a child.In short, if you choose it, it will be mainly for its price.

What does mobility look like?
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.
The Folder 2 8 GB is almost a model.Indeed, with its 2.8 inches, it is one of the smallest models currently available on the market.
Obviously with this size, it is not easy to surf the net.Even less good for watching a movie.It is in these cases that you will regret a bigger screen.
Also note that wifi will be available to accompany you.This means that the connection will be easier during your internet browsing.There’s GPS on this phone.You know where you stand.Important when you’re away from home.
Considered as a gadget by some, it does not manage packages or multiple operators.This model does not offer dual SIM storage.If you don’t want to increase the bill on your next trip, consider replacing your national SIM with a local one.
It is important to note that this model does not include 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.A negative point, however, is the battery capacity.The 1470 mAh will barely be enough to last a day between calls, texts or games.Keep your charger handy.
On the question of loading, LG has done in the economy, that is to say without the fast charge.Convenient to use, it would have made it possible to recharge quickly.
A device for watching movies and listening to music?
Smartphones have become the new televisions.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.Careful, that doesn’t mean any smartphone will do.
We would have liked the Folder 2 8 GB to have been more powerful on the multimedia side.He’s at the bottom of our ranking.Its screen is not big enough to enjoy a video, let alone a movie.The resolution is low: 240 x 320.It is rather advisable to listen to music.
The screen of this model has been switched to LCD IPS (In-Plane Switching).The visual result is very good no matter from what angle you look at the screen.
You’ll need to forget your standard headset.Indeed, on this model, there is no 3.5mm jack plug.
With its OS version installed, the phone supports wireless Hi-Fi audio via Bluetooth.A technology that ensures quality sound.
Finally, we deplore the absence of stereo speakers.
The right choice to play online?
For games, you need performance.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.
What came out of our tests is that the Folder 2 8 GB is low in power.The Qualcomm MSM8909 Snapdragon 210 (28 nm) processor is weak and the graphics processing unit of a lower quality than we would have liked.The visual result is below other smartphones in this category.
A smartphone with RAM, but the bare minimum.This phone only defaults to 8 GB; that’s probably fair.But some of you will need more; that’s why LG has left a free slot for a memory card.
Forget the long video game sessions on this model.The endurance of this model is one of the weakest.Its 1470 mAH power will force you to recharge before the end of the day.
As with games, this smartphone is not intended to have many applications.unfortunately, it is at a very low reading comfort level.That’s gonna make it harder to read.The precision of the image, the colours; so many elements that will limit your desire to read on this phone.
Please note that this model does not allow contactless payments.
The tool to make photos, movies?
People have been using smartphones for some time now… to take pictures.They have millions of pixels that capture details perfectly.The ability to stabilize at the time of shooting or the Burst mode are also important points.Being able to share photos taken with one click is also important.Generally speaking, LG has developed a recognized know-how for smartphones.
The company has done the bare minimum in this case.In fact, there is only one camera on this phone.
If you are very attached to the quality of the photos, you may be disappointed by this Folder 2 8 GB.A definition in 2 Mp, which is necessarily less good than on top-of-the-range models.This smartphone has only 8 GB; that’s very little in terms of storage.Limited space to store your holiday photos and movies.And then we advise you to provide external backup solutions.
Finally, the Folder 2 8 GB…
This Folder 2 8 GB is not good for all uses.It’s a model that’s mostly intended for troubleshooting.Only its well-placed price is interesting; it can be a temporary choice.
