The Z71 32 GB, enough for internet use?
The issue of mobility is important when it comes to a smartphone. Mobility for surfing the internet, even on holiday.
The Z71 32 GB is almost a model.A modest 5.71 -inch screen, which on the other hand is easier to fit in a pocket and easier to hold.
It will be more difficult to click on this small area.Watching movies will be less enjoyable.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 know where you stand.Unless you’re in the middle of the desert.
This on model, you can have more than one phone number.In other words, having several subscriptions with the same device.That is, several operators at the same time.It can be interesting when you travel abroad.
We found out that this Z71 32 GB doesn’t have reinforced glass.No protection against scratches or the shocks of everyday life.You will need to plan for the purchase of a protective film.
Because of its battery, the range of this model is one of the worst.There is only 3200 mAh, which is low for normal use.As a precaution, you may have an external battery available nearby.
And since Lava did not consider it useful to put a fast charge on this model, we will have to wait.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 become a handy tool.You can also listen to continuous music anywhere.They are quite powerful and quite connected by streaming video.But not all phones are suitable for this purpose.
With a low reading comfort, the Z71 32 GB is not designed for multimedia.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.For information, the resolution is 720 x 1520.It is rather advisable to listen to music.
This includes an IPS LCD screen.That is to say that it offers very good colours and very wide viewing angles.
Lava has also designed this product for audio use.The 3.5mm jack input allows the connection of headphones and/or a microphone.
With its OS version installed, the phone supports wireless Hi-Fi audio via Bluetooth.The transmission is fluid and the sound is clear.
On the sound side, we find that there are no stereo speakers.
The right model to play with?
For games, you need performance.The same applies to the ever-increasing number of applications that reduce battery capacity.The processor and graphics chip must also be of high quality to make the image fluid.In short, the more advanced the components are, the better the gameplay will be.
What came out of our tests is that the Z71 32 GB is low in power.The Mediatek MT6762 Helio P22 (12 nm) processor is weak and the graphics processing unit of a lower quality than we would have liked.The visual result is below other smartphones in this category.
In terms of storage memory, it’s in the worst.This phone only defaults to 32 GB; that’s probably fair.In fact, for some passionate users, Lava has provided an extra space to add more.
Please note that in intensive use, the battery may not hold.The result is at the bottom of our ranking.Its 3200 mAH power will force you to recharge before the end of the day.
As with games, this smartphone is not intended to have many applications.Reading comfort where the display is not up to scratch.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?
Having become an essential use of smartphones, the photo function has made great strides since the first generations.For a long time, manufacturers have been communicating about the millions of pixels their devices were equipped with.But this characteristic is not everything.The possible retouching via application is also interesting.Lava is renowned for the quality of its sensors and the design of its smartphones.
It’s a surprise from Lava.There is indeed only one lens on this phone.
With its photo resolution of 13 Mp, this Z71 32 GB is an interesting choice compared to other equivalent models.You will find the brightness and colours of your holiday images at your fingertips.You will limit selfies with this model, because of the poor quality of the rendering.The editing function is out of date.This Z71 32 GB is good for telephoning, but not for retouching images.
This phone offers very little space: 32 GB; this is the smallest phone available.Not enough to back up all your video files or music.And then we advise you to provide external backup solutions.
The Z71 32 GB, a good choice for the right use
Following our tests, we see that this Z71 32 GB is not good for all cases.It’s a model that’s mostly intended for troubleshooting.Only its well-placed price is interesting; it can be a temporary choice.
