The Note 7 16 GB, the right choice for surfing the internet?
The issue of mobility is important when it comes to a smartphone. Mobility for surfing the internet, even on holiday.
That Note 7 16 GB looks really small.Indeed, with its 6.1 inches, it is one of the smallest models currently available on the market.
A size that does not invite fluid use on the internet.Even less good for watching a movie.It’s a model made for telephoning, mainly.
In addition, through its Wlan option, you can connect to wifi terminals.You will be able to enjoy quality web access, anywhere, even on the other side of the world.This smartphone has GPS.You’ll appreciate not having to ask for directions anymore.Unless you’re at the bottom of a cave, you’ll be able to know where you are at any given moment.
Several Sims can be activated on this smartphone.This means that you can manage several packages at the same time.And therefore several operators on this model.It can be interesting when you travel abroad.
Detail that is missing on this Note 7 16 GB is the absence of reinforced glass.It’s hard to predict that a device will never fall down.
If you decide on this model, remember to use a transparent tempered glass film, adapted to the shape of the screen.
Autonomy is one of the worst features on this model.There is only 3500 mAh, which is low for normal use.Keep your charger handy.
Ulefone did not choose to install the fast charge feature on this model.Too bad, it’s a very interesting feature today.
The right choice for watching movies?
More and more of us watch our phones at the expense of our TVs every day.Perfectly designed for our daily needs.You can also listen to continuous music anywhere.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.But not all phones are suitable for this purpose.
Unsurprisingly, this model is not really made for multimedia.He’s not doing as well as most of his competitors.It’s hard to watch a video.For information, the resolution is 600 x 1280.It is rather advisable to listen to music.
The on-board technology at the display level is the LCD IPS.The light of the backlight varies according to the orientation of the pixels allowing a wider viewing angle.
On the audio side, Ulefone wanted to do it right.A 3.5mm input to connect your headphones or speakers.
Bluetooth technology will allow you to listen to music with connected devices.The result is very pleasant to the ear.
And, on the nice but missing functionality side, we have the stereo speakers; the mono sound is shallower.
The right choice to play online?
Games are performance consuming.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.Simply put, the higher these features are, the better your gaming experience will be.
Our tests put this Note 7 16 GB at the bottom of the list in terms of power.Its Mediatek MT6580 (28nm) processor is not very powerful, and the GPU is not at the expected level.The visual result is below other smartphones in this category.
And because Ulefone predicted that some of you would be demanding gamers, you have the ability to expand the available memory.
In case you play a lot, you’re going to strain the drums.Moreover, this model is one of the least efficient at the moment.The power of 3500 mAH will require you to recharge during the day.
Performance and good display were expected for the possible applications of this model.A below-average configuration with a reduced screen size of 6.1 inches.It won’t be easy to read the downloaded documents.Even if it remains legible, the clarity of the image and the display are below the competition.
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?
Over time, smartphones have become almost as good as cameras.The reason being related to the millions of pixels they are equipped with.The ability to stabilize at the time of shooting or the Burst mode are also important points.Being able to retouch the obtained photos is appreciated.Ulefone is renowned for the quality of its sensors and the design of its smartphones.
As usual, Ulefone did it right, with the sensor part integrated on the Android system.This phone offers 3 lenses as standard.
Don’t expect to see a nice picture on this Note 7 16 GB; a lower photo resolution than its competitors.A definition in 8 Mp, which is necessarily less good than on top-of-the-range models.Unfortunately for image lovers, it does not have HDR.
You will limit selfies with this model, because of the poor quality of the rendering.Reprocessing photos is not intuitive.This Note 7 16 GB is good for telephoning, but not for retouching images.
The Note 7 16 GB, a good choice for the right use
The design of this Note 7 16 GB corresponds to an entry-level product.It can be a temporary choice or a temporary fix.Only its well-placed price is interesting; it can be a temporary choice.
