C2 Tava 16 GB for mobility?
Your smartphone must be able to accompany you at all times. If for you, a phone is just for making calls, you probably won’t need a smartphone.
That C2 Tava 16 GB looks really small.A size of 5.45 inches that would have been normal in the early days of smartphones, but not anymore.
A size that does not invite fluid use on the internet.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.Convenient if you have cut off portability (abroad) and want to stay in touch with your loved ones. This phone is equipped with a GPS chip.No more need for a map to get around a city or a country.Effective functionality almost everywhere.
If having several lines in the same device is essential for you, go ahead.There is only one SIM card slot here.It will force those who have a local package and who bring their phone with them when they travel, to take out the card and put in the one for the country of destination.
It is important to note that this model does not include reinforced glass.No protection against scratches or the shocks of everyday life.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.With a power of 3000 mAh, you will be forced to recharge more often.You’ll think about having an external battery backup nearby.
And since Nokia did not consider it useful to put a fast charge on this model, we will have to wait.Yet it has become almost indispensable, due to the speed at which batteries are now draining.
A device for watching movies and listening to music?
More and more of us watch our phones at the expense of our TVs every day.Perfectly designed for our daily needs.It even replaces the radio, or to listen to music.Access to the network allows you to watch a video stream whenever you feel like it.Careful, that doesn’t mean any smartphone will do.
With a low reading comfort, the C2 Tava 16 GB is not designed for multimedia.He’s not doing as well as most of his competitors.The 5.45-inch screen is poorly suited for exercise.For information, the resolution is 720 x 1440.He’ll be more comfortable listening to music.
The on-board technology at the display level is the LCD IPS.The visual result is very good no matter from what angle you look at the screen.
On the audio side, Nokia wanted to do it right.The 3.5mm jack input allows the connection of headphones and/or a microphone.
To transfer the sound from the phone, you will have the option via bluetooth.A technology that ensures quality sound.
And finally, for the sound, we were surprised not to find the stereo.
The right model to play with?
Impossible to play properly without a high-performance device.Batteries are put to the test every day due to the use of mobile internet and applications.On 3D games, the right processor and quality graphics chip ensure smooth rendering.Simply put, the higher these features are, the better your gaming experience will be.
What came out of our tests is that the C2 Tava 16 GB is low in power.The Mediatek MT6761 Helio A22 (16 nm) processor is an older generation.Which makes it look just passable.
In terms of storage memory, it’s in the worst.This phone only defaults to 16 GB; that’s probably fair.Knowing that some users need more space, Nokia 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 3000 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.The components do not allow for a quality display.It won’t be easy to read the downloaded documents.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.
Concerning 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.Being able to retouch the obtained photos is appreciated.Nokia has a long history of designing quality products.
Little progress has been made by Nokia.There is indeed only one lens on this phone.
Don’t expect to see a nice picture on this C2 Tava 16 GB; a lower photo resolution than its competitors.A photo resolution of 8 Mp which gives a low quality result.It’s not the best device for making selfies.Also, it is difficult to retouch images properly.This C2 Tava 16 GB is good for telephoning, but not for retouching images.
This phone offers very little space: 16 GB; this is the smallest phone available.Forget about your music and movies, in addition to your many applications.And then we advise you to provide external backup solutions.
What about the C2 Tava 16 GB?
This C2 Tava 16 GB is not good for all uses.With lesser performance, it does not reach the level of the best.Only its well-placed price is interesting; it can be a temporary choice.
