The MAX P490 8 Go, enough for internet use?
The main advantage of a smartphone is to be connected everywhere and therefore to be mobile.Mobility for surfing the internet, even on holiday.
A model that fits in your pocket: the MAX P490 8 Go.Indeed, with its 5.0 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.It is in these cases that you will regret a bigger screen.
In addition, it natively offers Wifi technology.This allows you to easily have a connection with a comfortable speed. This phone is equipped with a GPS chip.Your travels will be facilitated, even abroad.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.This will even be possible with competing operators.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.
Detail that is missing on this MAX P490 8 Go is the absence of 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.A negative point, however, is the battery capacity.With only 2000 mAh, it will be difficult to last a full day.You’ll think about having an external battery backup nearby.
In conclusion on battery charging, Energizer has not changed anything compared to previous models, which means no fast charge.Yet it has become almost indispensable, due to the speed at which batteries are now draining.
Is this device good for listening to music and watching videos?
Smartphones have become the new televisions.It’s a device that is always at hand.The same goes for listening to music.Thanks to the ever-increasing access to networks, and with easy-to-use applications, it has become very simple to watch a streaming movie (Netflix, YouTube or Disney) on a phone screen.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.The 5.0 -inch screen is poorly suited for exercise.For information, the resolution is 480 x 854.He’ll be more comfortable listening to music.
Energizer has also designed this product for audio use.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.
On the sound side, we find that there are no stereo speakers.
The right choice to play online?
For games, you need performance.Games, but also applications require batteries.For smooth and responsive rendering on 3D video games, it is necessary to combine a good processor with a good graphics processor.In other words, the power of the technical components is essential to enjoy the game phases.
We’ve been playing for several hours and it seems to us that this MAX P490 8 Go is incredible.On the processor side, even if it is not always the case, the Quad Core is today almost the minimum.A Mediatek MT6580M (28 nm) processor and a GPU are installed on this model.These elements bring performance and fluidity to the videos.
A smartphone with RAM, but the bare minimum.You will only have 8 GB for your videos and music.But some of you will need more; that’s why Energizer has left a free slot for a memory card.
In case you play a lot, you’re going to strain the drums.The result is at the bottom of our ranking.Its power of 2000 mAH will not allow you to enjoy it all day long.
As with games, this smartphone is not intended to have many applications.Reading comfort where the display is not up to scratch.It won’t be easy to read the downloaded documents.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.
For audio or video use?
Having become an essential use of smartphones, the photo function has made great strides since the first generations.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.The possible retouching via application is also interesting.Energizer is renowned for the quality of its sensors and the design of its smartphones.
The manufacturer has made a system perfectly integrated with Android.This gives you 1 lenses installed.
Don’t expect to see a nice picture on this MAX P490 8 Go; a lower photo resolution than its competitors.A photo resolution of 5 Mp which gives a low quality result.Note that it does not have the HDR function which would have improved the images.
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 MAX P490 8 Go is good for telephoning, but not for retouching images.
This phone offers very little space: 8 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 MAX P490 8 Go – in a nutshell
