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.
That Z61 Pro 16 GB looks really small.A size of 5.45 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.Don’t imagine watching a movie in good conditions either.It is in these cases that you will regret a bigger screen.
In addition, through its Wlan option, you can connect to wifi terminals.This allows you to easily have a connection with a comfortable speed.There’s GPS on this phone.You know where you stand.Effective functionality almost everywhere.
Several Sims can be activated on this smartphone.This means that you can manage several packages at the same time.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 Z61 Pro 16 GB.No protection against scratches or the shocks of everyday life.A possible solution at a lower cost is the addition of a transparent tempered glass film, without altering the screen’s tactile reactivity.
Unfortunately, on the battery side it’s not so good.There is only 3100 mAh, which is low for normal use.This requires organization and always having a back-up charger available.
Lava did not choose to install the fast charge feature on this model.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?
The use of the telephone now exceeds that of television.It’s a device that is always at hand.The same goes for listening to music.They are quite powerful and quite connected by streaming video.However, not all smartphones will do the trick.
Unsurprisingly, this model is not really made for multimedia.He’s at the bottom of our ranking.The 5.45-inch screen is poorly suited for exercise.The resolution is low: 720 x 1440.However, you can use it to listen to your music playlist.
Lava sought to improve the audio experience.A 3.5mm input to connect your headphones or speakers.
With its OS version installed, the phone supports wireless Hi-Fi audio via Bluetooth.The result is very pleasant to the ear.
On the sound side, we find that there are no stereo speakers.
Lava’s smartphone: a good choice for making video calls?
For games, you need performance.This implies that the batteries must be able to keep up.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.
In the end, we found that the power of this Z61 Pro 16 GB is below its competitors.The visual result is below other smartphones in this category.
In terms of storage memory, it’s in the worst.This model has 16 GB, which is low.In fact, for some passionate users, Lava has provided an extra space to add more.
Forget the long video game sessions on this model.Unfortunately in the case of this model, it is one of the worst.The power of 3100 mAH will require you to recharge during the day.
As with games, this smartphone is not intended to have many applications.The components do not allow for a quality display.This is an entry-level model: 295* pixels per inch.You’ll have to force it to read the documents clearly.
Please note that this model does not allow contactless payments.
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.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, Lava has developed a recognized know-how for smartphones.
Little progress has been made by Lava.There is indeed only one lens on this phone.
The resolution of this model is not very efficient.A photo resolution of 8 Mp which gives a low quality result.We do not recommend this device to anyone who regularly selfies with their smartphone.The editing function is out of date.This Z61 Pro 16 GB 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.Forget about your music and movies, in addition to your many applications.And then we advise you to provide external backup solutions.
The Z61 Pro 16 GB, a good choice for the right use
Following our tests, we see that this Z61 Pro 16 GB is not good for all cases.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.
