K31 32 GB for mobility?
The issue of mobility is important when it comes to a smartphone.Mobility for surfing the internet, even on holiday.
A model that fits in your pocket: the K31 32 GB.In fact, it’s one of the smallest (5.7 inches) compared to other smartphones.
A size that does not invite fluid use on the internet.Watching movies will be less enjoyable.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 means that the connection will be easier during your internet browsing.There’s GPS on this phone.Your travels will be facilitated, even abroad.Unless you’re in the middle of the desert.
Some smartphones can hide more than one.This means that you can manage several packages at the same time.This model allows you to manage several operators.This will be convenient for those who travel regularly.
Detail that is missing on this K31 32 GB is the absence of reinforced glass.No protection against scratches or shocks that can occur during the lifetime of all smartphones.If you decide on this model, remember to use a transparent tempered glass film, adapted to the shape of the screen.
Unfortunately, on the battery side it’s not so good.With a power of 3000 mAh, you will be forced to recharge more often.As a precaution, you may have an external battery available nearby.
And since Lg did not consider it useful to put a fast charge on this model, we will have to wait.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.It’s a device that is always at hand.You can also simply listen to music.They are quite powerful and quite connected by streaming video.Careful, that doesn’t mean any smartphone will do.
Unsurprisingly, this model is not really made for multimedia.He’s one of the worst in the business.The 5.7-inch screen is poorly suited for exercise.For information, the resolution is 720 x 1520.However, you can use it to listen to your music playlist.
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.
Lg 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.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 choice to play online?
Impossible to play properly without a high-performance device.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.In short, the more advanced the components are, the better the gameplay will be.
Our tests place this K31 32 GB in the middle of the category.The KTKT processor and the graphics chip are correct.The image is beautiful and fluid.
As far as RAM is concerned, this model is lightweight to say the least.It’s 32 GB that have been installed, and that’s not much.But some of you will need more; that’s why Lg has left a free slot for a memory card.
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.Its 3000 mAH power will force you to recharge before the end of the day.
We would have appreciated a higher level for displaying applications.unfortunately, it is at a very low reading comfort level.This is an entry-level model: 295* 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.
What about the videos?
The quality of smartphones allows you to take pictures as well as many cameras.They have millions of pixels that capture details perfectly.But this characteristic is not everything.Being able to share photos taken with one click is also important.Lg has a long history of designing quality products.
Little progress has been made by Lg.In fact, there is only one camera on this phone.
The resolution of this model is not very efficient.A photo resolution of 13 Mp which gives a low quality result.As far as selfies are concerned, this model is devoid of the technology that embellishes the photos .Reprocessing photos is not intuitive.You will be able to take pictures perfectly, but don’t expect high quality.
This model is one of the least space-consuming with only 32 GB.That means you’ll have to make choices between videos, photos and applications.And then we advise you to provide external backup solutions.
The K31 32 GB in conclusion
Our analysis showed that this K31 32 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 the end, it’s a second choice in addition to your main smartphone.
