Oxygen 68 XL 32 Go for mobility?
The intended use of your future phone is of utmost importance.Beyond its telephone function, we expect it to be as good for surfing the internet and usable when travelling.
This Oxygen 68 XL 32 Go is a large model, a little bulky.It doesn’t matter, probably if during your various activities, with its 6.85 -inch size, your smartphone will stay in your bag.A disadvantage that turns into an advantage for surfing the net.Thanks to this size, it will be easy for you to read the texts on your screen.The image restitution is efficient.All right. All right.
In addition, it natively offers Wifi technology.Convenient if you have cut off portability (abroad) and want to stay in touch with your loved ones.This smartphone comes with GPS.Your travels will be facilitated, even abroad.Effective functionality almost everywhere.
It is sometimes convenient to have several phones in one. And this model can handle multiple Sims.In other words, having several subscriptions with the same device.This model allows you to manage several operators.It can be interesting when you travel abroad.
Detail that is missing on this Oxygen 68 XL 32 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.What’s more, this mobile phone has one of the most powerful batteries on the market, with 5000 mAH.Convenient when you’re travelling or simply away from the office.
Archos did not choose to install the fast charge feature on this model.Convenient to use, it would have made it possible to recharge quickly.
A device for watching movies and listening to music?
Smartphones have become the new televisions.Perfectly designed for our daily needs.You can also listen to continuous music anywhere.They are quite powerful and quite connected by streaming video.However, not all smartphones will do the trick.
This is not a model designed for multimedia.He’s at the bottom of our ranking.An 6.85 -inch screen with overly vivid colors.For information, the resolution is 640 x 1352.He’ll be more comfortable listening to music.
The screen of this model has been switched to LCD IPS (In-Plane Switching).That is to say that it offers very good colours and very wide viewing angles.
On the audio side, Archos wanted to do it right.A 3.5mm input to connect your headphones or speakers.
Using its Bluetooth functionality, you can pair your phone with all the devices in your home (speakers, TV…).The sound result is of a good level.
And, on the nice but missing functionality side, we have the stereo speakers; the mono sound is shallower.
Is it suitable for games?
Impossible to play properly without a high-performance device.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.Simply put, the higher these features are, the better your gaming experience will be.
In the end, we found that the power of this Oxygen 68 XL 32 Go is below its competitors.The Mediatek MT6762 Helio P22 (12 nm) processor is weak and the graphics processing unit of a lower quality than we would have liked.The visual result is below other smartphones in this category.
In terms of memory, this model is in the middle.It is 32 GB that are provided.But some of you will need more; that’s why Archos has left a free slot for a memory card.
Intensive use of smartphone games also puts a lot of strain on the battery.Here you have the best in the market.It has a 5000 mAh battery.And with its attractive design, you’ll never let it go again.
It will be necessary to limit the applications installed on this smartphone.The components do not allow for a quality display.It won’t be easy to read the downloaded documents.The precision of the image, the colours; so many elements that will limit your desire to read on this phone.
And to finish on the application part, we note that the payment function via telephone (the NFC), is not available here.
Concerning audio or video use?
The quality of smartphones allows you to take pictures as well as many cameras.They have millions of pixels that capture details perfectly.However, this is not the only criterion to be taken into account.Editing and sharing options should also be analyzed.Archos is renowned for the quality of its sensors and the design of its smartphones.
This model is equipped with the necessary components integrated in Android.And finally, there are 2 targets on this phone.
The resolution of this model is not very efficient.A photo resolution of 8 Mp which gives a low quality result.Note that it does not have the HDR function which would have improved the images.
You will limit selfies with this model, because of the poor quality of the rendering.The editing function is out of date.This Oxygen 68 XL 32 Go is good for telephoning, but not for retouching images.
This model contains 32 GB of available space.So much space to store videos, photos and applications.The amount of storage will be sufficient to meet your classic needs.
Finally, the Oxygen 68 XL 32 Go…
The design of this Oxygen 68 XL 32 Go is well done and corresponds to consumer expectations.It’s a very good quality model.And with a contained price tag, it’s finally good.
