In a few words
How will you use your Smartphone?Depending on the use that will be made of them, it is mandatory to compare several models with each other.Already at the level of the operating system of this A60 16 GB: here, it is an Android with all the Blackview ecosystem that goes with it.
If this first characteristic is not blocking for you, let’s go to the tests to find out if it is adapted to your uses.
This A60 16 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.
|Avoid choosing this phone for|
|Playing video games|
|Taking pictures or filming|
What does mobility look like?
The issue of mobility is important when it comes to a smartphone. If for you, a phone is just for making calls, you probably won’t need a smartphone.
A60 16 GB’s really small.A size of 5 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.Forget the videos, too.It’s a model made for telephoning, mainly.
Also note that wifi will be available to accompany you.You will be able to enjoy quality web access, anywhere, even on the other side of the world.This smartphone comes with GPS.No more need for a map to get around a city or a country.Effective functionality almost everywhere.
This on model, you can have more than one phone number.In other words, the ability to use multiple phone lines in this unit.And therefore several operators on this model.An interesting option abroad.
No protection on the screen of this A60 16 GB.No protection against scratches or the shocks of everyday life.It is a good idea to purchase an adaptable screen protector as a complement.Because of its battery, the range of this model is one of the worst.With only 2800 mAh, it will be difficult to last a full day.As a precaution, you may have an external battery available nearby.
In conclusion on battery charging, Blackview has not changed anything compared to previous models, which means no fast charge.Too bad, it’s a very interesting feature today.
Is this device good for listening to music and watching videos?
More and more of us watch our phones at the expense of our TVs every day.A handy device for watching videos.The same goes for listening to music.Access to the network allows you to watch a video stream whenever you feel like it.However, not all smartphones will do the trick.
Unsurprisingly, this model is not really made for multimedia.It is one of the worst in this area.An 5-inch screen with overly vivid colors.A resolution which is moreover in 720 x 1280.However, you can use it to listen to your music playlist.
This includes an IPS LCD screen.That is to say that it offers very good colours and very wide viewing angles.
Blackview has also designed this product for audio use.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.A technology that ensures quality sound.
Finally, we deplore the absence of stereo speakers.
The Blackview smartphone for online or local games
Smartphone games now require power.Games, but also applications require batteries.The processor and graphics chip must also be of high quality to make the image fluid.Simply put, the higher these features are, the better your gaming experience will be.
What came out of our tests is that the A60 16 GB is low in power.Its Mediatek MT6580A (28 nm) processor is not very powerful, and the GPU is not at the expected level.The visual result is below other smartphones in this category.
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, Blackview has provided a free space for an extension.
If you play a lot for several hours you will find that the battery is low.Unfortunately in the case of this model, it is one of the worst.Its 2800 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.A below-average configuration with a reduced screen size of 5 inches.This is an entry-level model: 294* pixels per inch.You’ll have to force it to read the documents clearly.
And to finish on the application part, we note that the payment function via telephone (the NFC), is not available here.
Analysis of Audio and Video functions
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.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, Blackview has developed a recognized know-how for smartphones.
The company has done the bare minimum in this case.There is indeed only one lens on this phone.
The resolution of this model is not very efficient.A definition in 8 Mp, which is necessarily less good than on top-of-the-range models.However, it does not have HDR technology.
As far as selfies are concerned, this model is devoid of the technology that embellishes the photos .Also, it is difficult to retouch images properly.This A60 16 GB is good for telephoning, but not for retouching images.
This device contains only 16 GB of storage space; less than most.Forget about your music and movies, in addition to your many applications.With this amount available, you will need to quickly sort through what you want to keep and delete the rest.
Finally, the A60 16 GB…
The design of this A60 16 GB corresponds to an entry-level product.It’s a model that’s mostly intended for troubleshooting.In the end, it’s a second choice in addition to your main smartphone.
