|Avoid choosing this phone for|
What does mobility look like?
The intended use of your future phone is of utmost importance. Mobility for surfing the internet, even on holiday.
A model that fits in your pocket: the 9720 32 GB.A modest 2.8-inch screen, which on the other hand is easier to fit in a pocket and easier to hold.
That means it’s not practical for internet browsing.Don’t imagine watching a movie in good conditions either.The primary use of this phone would be to make calls…
In addition, it natively offers Wifi technology.You will be able to enjoy quality web access, anywhere, even on the other side of the world. This phone is equipped with a GPS chip.You know where you stand.Effective functionality almost everywhere.
Considered as a gadget by some, it does not manage packages or multiple operators.This phone does not have dual SIM.With a national package, you will be forced abroad to take out your card and put another local one in its place.
We found out that this 9720 32 GB doesn’t have reinforced glass.No protection against scratches or shocks that can occur during the lifetime of all smartphones.It is a good idea to purchase an adaptable screen protector as a complement.Unfortunately, on the battery side it’s not so good.With a power of 1450 mAh, you will be forced to recharge more often.This requires organization and always having a back-up charger available.
And since Blackberry 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.
The right model for multimedia use?
For many, phones are beginning to replace TV sets.A handy device for watching videos.You can also listen to continuous music anywhere.Access to the network allows you to watch a video stream whenever you feel like it.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.Its screen is not big enough to enjoy a video, let alone a movie.The resolution is low: 480 x 360.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.
For the audio part, Blackberry wanted to do well.You have an input for the 3.5mm plug of your headphones.
To transfer the sound from the phone, you will have the option via bluetooth.The result is very pleasant to the ear.
On the sound side, we find that there are no stereo speakers.
The Blackberry smartphone for online or local games
Smartphone games now require power.Games, but also applications require batteries.On 3D games, the right processor and quality graphics chip ensure smooth rendering.In short, technology and the latest generation of components provide better playability.
Our analysis shows that this 9720 32 GB is average.A powerful KTKT processor and a good quality GPU.This gives a correct fluidity of image.
As far as RAM is concerned, this model is lightweight to say the least.This model has 32 GB, which is low.Knowing that some users need more space, Blackberry has provided a free space for an extension.
Please note that in intensive use, the battery may not hold.Unfortunately in the case of this model, it is one of the worst.With a power of 1450 mAH, it will need to be recharged during the day.
We would have appreciated a higher level for displaying applications.The components do not allow for a quality display.That’s gonna make it harder to read.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.
The tool to make photos, movies?
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 share photos taken with one click is also important.Generally speaking, Blackberry has developed a recognized know-how for smartphones.
The company has done the bare minimum in this case.In fact, there is only one camera on this phone.
The screen resolution of this 9720 32 GB is among the lowest on the market.With a definition of only 5 Mp, you will have lower quality images.However, it does not have HDR technology.
This smartphone has only 32 GB; that’s very little in terms of storage.Limited space to store your holiday photos and movies.And then we advise you to provide external backup solutions.
The 9720 32 GB in conclusion
The design of this 9720 32 GB corresponds to an entry-level product.It’s a model that’s mostly intended for troubleshooting.In short, it is mainly the price that will guide your choice.
