And now that you know, our tests will let you know if, in terms of features and functionality, this smartphone is right for you.

The Z61 Pro 16 GB, enough for internet use?
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.
That Z61 Pro 16 GB looks really small.A modest 5.45-inch screen, which on the other hand is easier to fit in a pocket and easier to hold.
A size that does not invite fluid use on the internet.Watching movies will be less enjoyable.It is in these cases that you will regret a bigger screen.
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.You know where you stand.Unless you’re at the bottom of a cave, you’ll be able to know where you are at any given moment.
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.That is, several operators at the same time.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 Z61 Pro 16 GB.No protection against scratches or the shocks of everyday life.If you decide on this model, remember to use a transparent tempered glass film, adapted to the shape of the screen.
A negative point, however, is the battery capacity.The 3100 mAh will barely be enough to last a day between calls, texts or games.This requires organization and always having a back-up charger available.
And since Lava 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.
A device for watching movies and listening to music?
More and more of us watch our phones at the expense of our TVs every day.It’s become a handy tool.You can also listen to continuous music anywhere.Because of the power of smartphones and their connectivity, you can watch whatever you want.Careful, that doesn’t mean any smartphone will do.
We would have liked the Z61 Pro 16 GB to have been more powerful on the multimedia side.He’s not doing as well as most of his competitors.Its screen is not big enough to enjoy a video, let alone a movie.And its screen resolution is low.He’ll be more comfortable listening to music.
For the audio part, Lava 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 sound result is of a good level.
Finally, we deplore the absence of stereo speakers.
The right choice to play online?
Smartphone games now require power.The same applies to the ever-increasing number of applications that reduce battery capacity.On 3D games, the right processor and quality graphics chip ensure smooth rendering.In other words, the power of the technical components is essential to enjoy the game phases.
In the end, we found that the power of this Z61 Pro 16 GB is below its competitors.The rendering at the image level is inferior to the competition.
As far as RAM is concerned, you’re at the minimum required on a smartphone.You will only have 16 GB for your videos and music.But some of you will need more; that’s why Lava has left a free slot for a memory card.
In case you play a lot, you’re going to strain the drums.The result is at the bottom of our ranking.With a power of 3100 mAH, it will need to be recharged during the day.
It will be necessary to limit the applications installed on this smartphone.The components do not allow for a quality display.Its entry-level design with a smaller-than-average screen gives a disappointing result.The precision of the image, the colours; so many elements that will limit your desire to read on this phone.
Finally, and regrettably, this model does not allow for contactless payments.
The tool to make photos, movies?
People have been using smartphones for some time now… to take pictures.They have millions of pixels that capture details perfectly.But this characteristic is not everything.Being able to share photos taken with one click is also important.Lava has a long history of designing quality products.
On the other hand it’s a little light for the camera part.There is thus only one lens, to be installed on this model.
The resolution of this model is not very efficient.A photo resolution of 8 Mp which gives a low quality result.It’s not the best device for making selfies.So photo retouching is not exceptional.This Z61 Pro 16 GB allows you to take pictures, but will not restore the brightness or colors.
This device contains only 16 GB of storage space; less than most.Limited space to store your holiday photos and movies.To put it plainly, you will have to make room regularly or your memory will be saturated.
What about the Z61 Pro 16 GB?
This Z61 Pro 16 GB is not good for all uses.It can be a temporary choice or a temporary fix.In conclusion, it’s a pricey choice.
