As a preamble to this test
A lot of cell phones come out every month, and you get overwhelmed pretty quickly.
For heavy or occasional use, the models to be chosen will not be the same.Now let’s see the results of our situational testing.
This Folder 2 8 GB is not good for all uses.With lesser performance, it does not reach the level of the best.In conclusion, it’s a pricey choice.
|Avoid choosing this phone for|
What does mobility look like?
The intended use of your future phone is of utmost importance. You will use it to make phone calls, but also to surf and search for information on the internet.
Folder 2 8 GB’s really small.A size of 2.8 inches that would have been normal in the early days of smartphones, but not anymore.
Obviously with this size, it is not easy to surf the net.Even less good for watching a movie.The primary use of this phone would be to make calls…
The device is equipped with Wifi.This allows you to easily have a connection with a comfortable speed.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.
Considered as a gadget by some, it does not manage packages or multiple operators.You can only have one active plan with this phone.With a national package, you will be forced abroad to take out your card and put another local one in its place.
No protection on the screen of this Folder 2 8 GB.It’s hard to predict that a device will never fall down.
A possible solution at a lower cost is the addition of a transparent tempered glass film, without altering the screen’s tactile reactivity.
Unfortunately, on the battery side it’s not so good.With a power of 1470 mAh, you will be forced to recharge more often.Keep your charger handy.
On the question of loading, LG 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.
Analysis of multimedia functions.
For many, phones are beginning to replace TV sets.It’s a device that is always at hand.It even replaces the radio, or to listen 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.Careful, that doesn’t mean any smartphone will do.
Unsurprisingly, this model is not really made for multimedia.It is one of the worst in this area.It’s hard to watch a video.The resolution is low: 240 x 320.However, you can use it to listen to your music playlist.
This model has an IPS LCD screen.The result is less light scattering, resulting in a wider viewing angle and deeper tones.
To listen to music, you will need Bluetooth headphones.Indeed, this phone does not have a 3.5mm jack input.
To transfer the sound from the phone, you will have the option via bluetooth.The sound result is of a good level.
And finally, for the sound, we were surprised not to find the stereo.
The right model to play with?
Impossible to play properly without a high-performance device.Batteries are put to the test every day due to the use of mobile internet and applications.The processor and graphics chip must also be of high quality to make the image fluid.Simply put, the higher these features are, the better your gaming experience will be.
Our tests put this Folder 2 8 GB at the bottom of the list in terms of power.The components are starting to date (Qualcomm MSM8909 Snapdragon 210 (28 nm) processor), and the quality is less good.The visual result is below other smartphones in this category.
As far as RAM is concerned, this model is lightweight to say the least.You will only have 8 GB for your videos and music.But some of you will need more; that’s why LG has left a free slot for a memory card.
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.With a power of 1470 mAH, it will need to be recharged during the day.
We would have appreciated a higher level for displaying applications.unfortunately, it is at a very low reading comfort level.It won’t be easy to read the downloaded documents.You’ll have to force it to read the documents clearly.
And to finish on the application part, we note that the payment function via telephone (the NFC), is not available here.
The tool to make photos, movies?
The quality of smartphones allows you to take pictures as well as many cameras.The millions of pixels of the sensors make it possible to make high quality photos.The ability to stabilize at the time of shooting or the Burst mode are also important points.Being able to share photos taken with one click is also important.LG has a long history of designing quality products.
The company has done the bare minimum in this case.There is thus only one lens, to be installed on this model.
The resolution of this model is not very efficient.With a definition of only 2 Mp, you will have lower quality images.This device contains only 8 GB of storage space; less than most.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.
Finally, the Folder 2 8 GB…
Following our tests, we see that this Folder 2 8 GB is not good for all cases.It can be a temporary choice or a temporary fix.In conclusion, it’s a pricey choice.
