The Note 8P 16 GB, enough for internet use?
The issue of mobility is important when it comes to a smartphone.You will use it to make phone calls, but also to surf and search for information on the internet.
The Note 8P 16 GB is almost a model.In fact, it’s one of the smallest (5.5 inches) compared to other smartphones.
It will be more difficult to click on this small area.Forget the videos, too.The primary use of this phone would be to make calls…
In addition, it natively offers Wifi technology.This allows you to easily have a connection with a comfortable speed.There’s GPS on this phone.You’ll appreciate not having to ask for directions anymore.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.That is, several operators at the same time.This feature will be useful for travellers among you, who will be able to integrate a prepaid SIM card of the country they are in, without having to remove the main card.
No protection on the screen of this Note 8P 16 GB.In other words, the scratches or the shocks that happen to us all, will inevitably appear.A possible solution at a lower cost is the addition of a transparent tempered glass film, without altering the screen’s tactile reactivity.
Because of its battery, the range of this model is one of the worst.The 2700 mAh will barely be enough to last a day between calls, texts or games.Keep your charger handy.
Ulefone did not choose to install the fast charge feature on this model.Too bad, it’s a very interesting feature today.
Interesting for the videos?
More and more of us watch our phones at the expense of our TVs every day.Perfectly designed for our daily needs.The same goes for listening to music.Access to the network allows you to watch a video stream whenever you feel like it.However, the first smartphone that comes along is not necessarily going to fit.
We would have liked the Note 8P 16 GB to have been more powerful on the multimedia side.He’s at the bottom of our ranking.The 5.5 -inch screen is poorly suited for exercise.A resolution which is moreover in 442 x 960.At the limit, it will be suitable for listening 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.
For the audio part, Ulefone wanted to do well.This model has a 3.5mm jack input, and allows your phone to play good quality music.
Bluetooth technology will allow you to listen to music with connected devices.The result is very pleasant to the ear.
And finally, for the sound, we were surprised not to find the stereo.
The right model to play with?
Games are performance consuming.The same applies to the ever-increasing number of applications that reduce battery capacity.To play and have a smooth picture, you need to have the CPU and GPU at its best.In other words, the power of the technical components is essential to enjoy the game phases.
What came out of our tests is that the Note 8P 16 GB is low in power.The Mediatek MT6737 (28 nm) processor is an older generation.Which makes it look just passable.
As far as RAM is concerned, this model is lightweight to say the least.This model has 16 GB, which is low.And because Ulefone 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.Moreover, this model is one of the least efficient at the moment.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.A below-average configuration with a reduced screen size of 5.5 inches.It won’t be easy to read the downloaded documents.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.
Efficiency for audio and video
Having become an essential use of smartphones, the photo function has made great strides since the first generations.They have millions of pixels that capture details perfectly.But this characteristic is not everything.Editing and sharing options should also be analyzed.Ulefone is renowned for the quality of its sensors and the design of its smartphones.
The company has done the bare minimum in this case.There is thus only one lens, to be installed on this model.
If you are very attached to the quality of the photos, you may be disappointed by this Note 8P 16 GB.An image resolution of 8 Mp which will give a mediocre result.This phone offers very little space: 16 GB; this is the smallest phone available.That means you’ll have to make choices between videos, photos and applications.To put it plainly, you will have to make room regularly or your memory will be saturated.
The Note 8P 16 GB, a good choice for the right use
Our analysis showed that this Note 8P 16 GB wasn’t made for all purposes.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, it is mainly the price that will guide your choice.
