Leap 16 Go for mobility?
The main advantage of a smartphone is to be connected everywhere and therefore to be mobile.Beyond its telephone function, we expect it to be as good for surfing the internet and usable when travelling.
The Leap 16 Go is almost a model.A modest 5-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.Watching movies will be less enjoyable.It is in these cases that you will regret a bigger screen.
The device is equipped with Wifi.You will be able to enjoy quality web access, anywhere, even on the other side of the world.This smartphone comes with GPS.You’ll appreciate not having to ask for directions anymore.Important when you’re away from home.
No location, no multiple operator management.This model does not offer dual SIM storage.With a national package, you will be forced abroad to take out your card and put another local one in its place.
We found out that this Leap 16 Go doesn’t have reinforced glass.No protection against scratches or the shocks of everyday life.It is a good idea to purchase an adaptable screen protector as a complement.Unfortunately, on the battery side it’s not so good.There is only 2800 mAh, which is low for normal use.Keep your charger handy.
On the question of loading, BlackBerry 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.
Analysis of multimedia functions.
Smartphones have become the new televisions.A handy device for watching videos.You can also listen to continuous music anywhere.Access to the network allows you to watch a video stream whenever you feel like it.However, not all smartphones will do the trick.
This is not a model designed for multimedia.He’s at the bottom of our ranking.The 5-inch screen is poorly suited for exercise.And its screen resolution is low.It is rather advisable to listen to music.
The on-board technology at the display level is the LCD IPS.The result is less light scattering, resulting in a wider viewing angle and deeper tones.
For the audio part, BlackBerry wanted to do well.A 3.5mm input to connect your headphones or speakers.
Bluetooth technology will allow you to listen to music with connected devices.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?
For games, you need performance.The same applies to the ever-increasing number of applications that reduce battery capacity.On 3D games, the right processor and quality graphics chip ensure smooth rendering.In short, technology and the latest generation of components provide better playability.
A smartphone with RAM, but the bare minimum.You will only have 16 GB for your videos and music.Knowing that some users need more space, BlackBerry has provided a free space for an extension.
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 2800 mAH, it will need to be recharged during the day.
As with games, this smartphone is not intended to have many applications.A below-average configuration with a reduced screen size of 5 inches.Its entry-level design with a smaller-than-average screen gives a disappointing result.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.
Concerning audio or video use?
Having become an essential use of smartphones, the photo function has made great strides since the first generations.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.Editing and sharing options should also be analyzed.BlackBerry has long been designing smartphones with top quality photo sensors.
The company has done the bare minimum in this case.There is thus only one lens, to be installed on this model.
Don’t expect to see a nice picture on this Leap 16 Go; a lower photo resolution than its competitors.A photo resolution of 8 Mp which gives a low quality result.However, it does not have HDR technology.
You will limit selfies with this model, because of the poor quality of the rendering.Reprocessing photos is not intuitive.This Leap 16 Go allows you to take pictures, but will not restore the brightness or colors.
This phone offers very little space: 16 GB; this is the smallest phone available.Limited space to store your holiday photos and movies.And then we advise you to provide external backup solutions.
Finally, the Leap 16 Go…
This Leap 16 Go meets the majority of use cases.Performing well, it almost reaches the level of the best.All in all, a good price/quality ratio.
