E500 8 Go for mobility?
The main advantage of a smartphone is to be connected everywhere and therefore to be mobile.You will use it to make phone calls, but also to surf and search for information on the internet.
The E500 8 Go is almost a model.Indeed, with its 5.0 inches, it is one of the smallest models currently available on the market.
It will be more difficult to click on this small area.Even less good for watching a movie.The primary use of this phone would be to make calls…
Also note that wifi will be available to accompany you.This allows you to easily have a connection with a comfortable speed.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.
Some smartphones can hide more than one.In other words, having several subscriptions with the same device.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.
No protection on the screen of this E500 8 Go.In other words, the scratches or the shocks that happen to us all, will inevitably appear.You will need to plan for the purchase of a protective film.
Autonomy is one of the worst features on this model.The 2000 mAh will barely be enough to last a day between calls, texts or games.Keep your charger handy.
On the question of loading, Energizer has done in the economy, that is to say without the fast charge.Convenient to use, it would have made it possible to recharge quickly.
The right choice for watching movies?
Smartphones have become the new televisions.It’s a device that is always at hand.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.
This is not a model designed for multimedia.He’s not doing as well as most of his competitors.It’s hard to watch a video.And its screen resolution is low.He’ll be more comfortable listening to music.
Energizer sought to improve the audio experience.You have an input for the 3.5mm plug of your headphones.
Bluetooth technology will allow you to listen to music with connected devices.The result is very pleasant to the ear.
On the sound side, we find that there are no stereo speakers.
The right choice to play online?
For games, you need performance.The same applies to the ever-increasing number of applications that reduce battery capacity.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.
Our tests have shown that this E500 8 Go is one of the most powerful.The elements installed by the manufacturer are serious.Here this model is equipped with a Mediatek MT6580M (28 nm) with a calculation unit for graphics.This component allows a great fluidity at the level of the images.
A smartphone with RAM, but the bare minimum.You will only have 8 GB for your videos and music.Knowing that some users need more space, Energizer has provided a free space for an extension.
In case you play a lot, you’re going to strain the drums.Unfortunately in the case of this model, it is one of the worst.The power of 2000 mAH will require you to recharge during the day.
We would have appreciated a higher level for displaying applications.Reading comfort where the display is not up to scratch.That’s gonna make it harder to read.The precision of the image, the colours; so many elements that will limit your desire to read on this phone.
Finally, it should be noted that NFC (contactless payment) is not possible with this smartphone.
For audio or video use?
People have been using smartphones for some time now… to take pictures.The millions of pixels of the sensors make it possible to make high quality photos.However, this is not the only criterion to be taken into account.Being able to share photos taken with one click is also important.Energizer has long been designing smartphones with top quality photo sensors.
This smartphone has the camera part whose functionalities are supported by the Android OS .And for an even better result, this phone contains 1 lenses.
If you are very attached to the quality of the photos, you may be disappointed by this E500 8 Go.An image resolution of 5 Mp which will give a mediocre result.Note that it does not have the HDR function which would have improved the images.
As far as selfies are concerned, this model is devoid of the technology that embellishes the photos .The editing function is out of date.This E500 8 Go allows you to take pictures, but will not restore the brightness or colors.
This phone offers very little space: 8 GB; this is the smallest phone available.That means you’ll have to make choices between videos, photos and applications.It will be necessary to transfer your contents to other backup spaces very quickly.
Finally, the E500 8 Go…
This E500 8 Go meets the majority of use cases.This model is average, and will meet most of your needs.All in all, a good price/quality ratio.
