The A60 16 GB, the right choice for surfing the internet?
The issue of mobility is important when it comes to a smartphone. You will use it to make phone calls, but also to surf and search for information on the internet.
The A60 16 GB is almost a model.In fact, it’s one of the smallest (5 inches) compared to other smartphones.
It will be more difficult to click on this small area.Watching movies will be less enjoyable.All in all, perfect for a phone call.
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.Your travels will be facilitated, even abroad.Unless you’re at the bottom of a cave, you’ll be able to know where you are at any given moment.
This on model, you can have more than one phone number.This means that you can manage several packages at the same time.And therefore several operators on this model.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.
We found out that this A60 16 GB doesn’t have 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.Because of its battery, the range of this model is one of the worst.With a power of 2800 mAh, you will be forced to recharge more often.As a precaution, you may have an external battery available nearby.
In conclusion on battery charging, Blackview has not changed anything compared to previous models, which means no fast charge.Convenient to use, it would have made it possible to recharge quickly.
Analysis of multimedia functions.
Smartphones have become the new televisions.Perfectly designed for our daily needs.The same goes for listening to music.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.An 5-inch screen with overly vivid colors.The resolution is low: 720 x 1280.At the limit, it will be suitable for listening to music.
The screen of this model has been switched to LCD IPS (In-Plane Switching).The visual result is very good no matter from what angle you look at the screen.
On the audio side, Blackview wanted to do it right.A 3.5mm input to connect your headphones or speakers.
To transfer the sound from the phone, you will have the option via bluetooth.The sound result is of a good level.
On the sound side, we find that there are no stereo speakers.
The right choice to play online?
Smartphone games now require power.Batteries are put to the test every day due to the use of mobile internet and applications.To play and have a smooth picture, you need to have the CPU and GPU at its best.Simply put, the higher these features are, the better your gaming experience will be.
What came out of our tests is that the A60 16 GB is low in power.The Mediatek MT6580A (28 nm) processor is an older generation.The colors are medium and the images are not fluid.
As far as RAM is concerned, this model is lightweight to say the least.You will only have 16 GB for your videos and music.But some of you will need more; that’s why Blackview has left a free slot for a memory card.
Please note that in intensive use, the battery may not hold.Moreover, this model is one of the least efficient at the moment.Its 2800 mAH power will force you to recharge before the end of the day.
It will be necessary to limit the applications installed on this smartphone.A below-average configuration with a reduced screen size of 5 inches.It won’t be easy to read the downloaded documents.The images are of lower quality, they can sometimes pixelize, and give a final rendering that is painful for the eyes.
Finally, it should be noted that NFC (contactless payment) is not possible with this smartphone.
Concerning audio or video use?
People have been using smartphones for some time now… to take pictures.The reason being related to the millions of pixels they are equipped with.But this characteristic is not everything.The possible retouching via application is also interesting.Generally speaking, Blackview has developed a recognized know-how for smartphones.
On the other hand it’s a little light for the camera part.In fact, there is only one camera on this phone.
The screen resolution of this A60 16 GB is among the lowest on the market.A photo resolution of 8 Mp which gives a low quality result.Unfortunately for image lovers, it does not have HDR.
It’s not the best device for making selfies.Reprocessing photos is not intuitive.The sensor of this A60 16 GB is of very average quality and will dissuade you from using this smartphone for this kind of exercise.
This smartphone has only 16 GB; that’s very little in terms of storage.That means you’ll have to make choices between videos, photos and applications.With this amount available, you will need to quickly sort through what you want to keep and delete the rest.
The A60 16 GB, a good choice for the right use
The design of this A60 16 GB corresponds to an entry-level product.With lesser performance, it does not reach the level of the best.Only its well-placed price is interesting; it can be a temporary choice.
