As a preamble to this test
How will you use your Smartphone?Depending on whether you are a seasoned user or a beginner, the choices are different.The operating system is a matter of taste; on this H280S 4 GB, Energizer chose Android.
If this first characteristic is not blocking for you, let’s go to the tests to find out if it is adapted to your uses.
Unfortunately, our analysis showed that this product was below what you would expect from a smartphone.It’s a model that’s mostly intended for troubleshooting.In short, if you choose it, it will be mainly for its price.

The H280S 4 GB adapted for internet use and travel ?
The main advantage of a smartphone is to be connected everywhere and therefore to be mobile. Beyond its telephone function, we expect it to be as good for surfing the internet and usable when travelling.
That H280S 4 GB looks really small.In fact, it’s one of the smallest (5 inches) compared to other smartphones.
That means it’s not practical for internet browsing.Forget the videos, too.It is in these cases that you will regret a bigger screen.
In addition, it natively offers Wifi technology.This means that the connection will be easier during your internet browsing.This smartphone comes with 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.
This on model, you can have more than one phone number.This means that you can manage several packages at the same time.This will even be possible with competing operators.This will be convenient for those who travel regularly.
No protection on the screen of this H280S 4 GB.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.Because of its battery, the range of this model is one of the worst.With only 2000 mAh, it will be difficult to last a full day.Keep your charger handy.
And since Energizer did not consider it useful to put a fast charge on this model, we will have to wait.Too bad, it’s a very interesting feature today.
The right model for multimedia use?
For many, phones are beginning to replace TV sets.A handy device for watching videos.You can also simply listen to music.Because of the power of smartphones and their connectivity, you can watch whatever you want.Careful, that doesn’t mean any smartphone will do.
With a low reading comfort, the H280S 4 GB is not designed for multimedia.He’s one of the worst in the business.Its screen is not big enough to enjoy a video, let alone a movie.The resolution is low: 480 x 854.At the limit, it will be suitable for listening to music.
Energizer sought to improve the audio experience.A 3.5mm input to connect your headphones or speakers.
With its OS version installed, the phone supports wireless Hi-Fi audio via Bluetooth.The transmission is fluid and the sound is clear.
And, on the nice but missing functionality side, we have the stereo speakers; the mono sound is shallower.
The right model to play with?
Smartphone games now require power.Games, but also applications require batteries.To play and have a smooth picture, you need to have the CPU and GPU at its best.In short, the more advanced the components are, the better the gameplay will be.
Our tests place this H280S 4 GB in the middle of the category.A powerful KTKT processor and a good quality GPU.And with the graphics processor, the visual result is fluid.
In terms of storage memory, it’s in the worst.It’s 4 GB that have been installed, and that’s not much.But some of you will need more; that’s why Energizer has left a free slot for a memory card.
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 2000 mAH, it will need to be recharged during the day.
We would have appreciated a higher level for displaying applications.Reading comfort where the display is not up to scratch.This is an entry-level model: 196* pixels per inch.The images are of lower quality, they can sometimes pixelize, and give a final rendering that is painful for the eyes.
Finally, and regrettably, this model does not allow for contactless payments.
The tool to make photos, movies?
The quality of smartphones allows you to take pictures as well as many cameras.For a long time, manufacturers have been communicating about the millions of pixels their devices were equipped with.However, this is not the only criterion to be taken into account.The possible retouching via application is also interesting.Energizer is renowned for the quality of its sensors and the design of its smartphones.
Little progress has been made by Energizer.There is thus only one lens, to be installed on this model.
If you are very attached to the quality of the photos, you may be disappointed by this H280S 4 GB.A definition in 5 Mp, which is necessarily less good than on top-of-the-range models.However, it does not have HDR technology.
As far as selfies are concerned, this model is devoid of the technology that embellishes the photos .Reprocessing photos is not intuitive.This H280S 4 GB is good for telephoning, but not for retouching images.
This phone offers very little space: 4 GB; this is the smallest phone available.Not enough to back up all your video files or music.It will be necessary to transfer your contents to other backup spaces very quickly.
The H280S 4 GB, a good choice for the right use
Our analysis showed that this H280S 4 GB wasn’t made for all purposes.It can be a temporary choice or a temporary fix.In conclusion, it’s a pricey choice.
