The Note 8 16 GB, the right choice for surfing the internet?
The issue of mobility is important when it comes to a smartphone.Mobility for surfing the internet, even on holiday.
The Note 8 16 GB is almost a model.Indeed, with its 5.5 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.Forget the videos, too.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 has GPS.You’ll appreciate not having to ask for directions anymore.Important when you’re away from home.
Some smartphones can hide more than one.In other words, having several subscriptions with the same device.This model allows you to manage several operators.This will be convenient for those who travel regularly.
We found out that this Note 8 16 GB doesn’t have reinforced glass.No protection against scratches or shocks that can occur during the lifetime of all smartphones.It is a good idea to purchase an adaptable screen protector as a complement.A negative point, however, is the battery capacity.With only 2700 mAh, it will be difficult to last a full day.Keep your charger handy.
On the question of loading, Ulefone has done in the economy, that is to say without the fast charge.Too bad, it’s a very interesting feature today.
Interesting for the videos?
For many, phones are beginning to replace TV sets.A handy device for watching videos.It even replaces the radio, or to listen to music.Because of the power of smartphones and their connectivity, you can watch whatever you want.But not all phones are suitable for this purpose.
Unsurprisingly, this model is not really made for multimedia.He’s one of the worst in the business.It’s hard to watch a video.A resolution which is moreover in 442 x 960.He’ll be more comfortable listening to music.
The on-board technology at the display level is the LCD IPS.That is to say that it offers very good colours and very wide viewing angles.
Ulefone has also designed this product for audio use.A 3.5mm input to connect your headphones or speakers.
Using its Bluetooth functionality, you can pair your phone with all the devices in your home (speakers, TV…).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.This implies that the batteries must be able to keep up.On 3D games, the right processor and quality graphics chip ensure smooth rendering.In other words, the power of the technical components is essential to enjoy the game phases.
In the end, we found that the power of this Note 8 16 GB is below its competitors.The Mediatek MT6580 (28 nm) processor is an older generation.The rendering at the image level is inferior to the competition.
As far as RAM is concerned, you’re at the minimum required on a smartphone.It’s 16 GB that have been installed, and that’s not much.And because Ulefone predicted that some of you would be demanding gamers, you have the ability to expand the available memory.
If you play a lot for several hours you will find that the battery is low.The result is at the bottom of our ranking.With a power of 2700 mAH, it will need to be recharged 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.Even if it remains legible, the clarity of the image and the display are below the competition.
Please note that this model does not allow contactless payments.
Concerning audio or video use?
The quality of smartphones allows you to take pictures as well as many cameras.The millions of pixels of the sensors make it possible to make high quality photos.Other important criteria must be taken into account, such as zoom, HDR function, Flash Led, Panorama mode.The possible retouching via application is also interesting.Ulefone has long been designing smartphones with top quality photo sensors.
It’s a surprise from Ulefone.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 Note 8 16 GB.A photo resolution of 5 Mp which gives a low quality result.As far as selfies are concerned, this model is devoid of the technology that embellishes the photos .The editing function is out of date.This Note 8 16 GB is good for telephoning, but not for retouching images.
This device contains only 16 GB of storage space; less than most.Not enough to back up all your video files or music.And then we advise you to provide external backup solutions.
The Note 8 16 GB, a good choice for the right use
The design of this Note 8 16 GB corresponds to an entry-level product.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 the end, it’s a second choice in addition to your main smartphone.
