The K31 32 GB, enough for internet use?
The intended use of your future phone is of utmost importance.Mobility for surfing the internet, even on holiday.
K31 32 GB’s really small.Indeed, with its 5.7 inches, it is one of the smallest models currently available on the market.
A size that does not invite fluid use on the internet.Even less good for watching a movie.All in all, perfect for a phone call.
In addition, it natively offers Wifi technology.Convenient if you have cut off portability (abroad) and want to stay in touch with your loved ones.This smartphone comes with GPS.You know where you stand.Important when you’re away from home.
It is sometimes convenient to have several phones in one. And this model can handle multiple Sims.This means that you can manage several packages at the same time.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 K31 32 GB.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.
Because of its battery, the range of this model is one of the worst.With only 3000 mAh, it will be difficult to last a full day.Keep your charger handy.
On the question of loading, Lg has done in the economy, that is to say without the fast charge.Yet it has become almost indispensable, due to the speed at which batteries are now draining.
Analysis of multimedia functions.
For many, phones are beginning to replace TV sets.It’s a device that is always at hand.You can also simply listen to music.Access to the network allows you to watch a video stream whenever you feel like it.However, not all smartphones will do the trick.
We would have liked the K31 32 GB to have been more powerful on the multimedia side.He’s at the bottom of our ranking.The 5.7-inch screen is poorly suited for exercise.The resolution is low: 720 x 1520.At the limit, it will be suitable for listening to music.
The on-board technology at the display level is the LCD IPS.The result is less light scattering, resulting in a wider viewing angle and deeper tones.
Lg sought to improve the audio experience.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 result is very pleasant to the ear.
And, on the nice but missing functionality side, we have the stereo speakers; the mono sound is shallower.
The Lg phone, for video games?
Impossible to play properly without a high-performance device.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.In short, the more advanced the components are, the better the gameplay will be.
Our tests place this K31 32 GB in the middle of the category.Even if the Mediatek MT6762 Helio P22 (12 nm) processor is not of the latest generation, it is powerful.The graphics processor makes it possible to manage beautiful images.
As far as RAM is concerned, this model is lightweight to say the least.This phone only defaults to 32 GB; that’s probably fair.In fact, for some passionate users, Lg has provided an extra space to add more.
Forget the long video game sessions on this model.The endurance of this model is one of the weakest.Its power of 3000 mAH will not allow you to enjoy it all day long.
Performance and good display were expected for the possible applications of this model.A below-average configuration with a reduced screen size of 5.7 inches.That’s gonna make it harder to read.Even if it remains legible, the clarity of the image and the display are below the competition.
Finally, it should be noted that NFC (contactless payment) is not possible with this smartphone.
Concerning audio or video use?
Over time, smartphones have become almost as good as cameras.The millions of pixels of the sensors make it possible to make high quality photos.Other important criteria must be taken into account, such as zoom, HDR function, Flash Led, Panorama mode.Editing and sharing options should also be analyzed.Generally speaking, Lg has developed a recognized know-how for smartphones.
It’s a surprise from Lg.In fact, there is only one camera on this phone.
The resolution of this model is not very efficient.A definition in 13 Mp, which is necessarily less good than on top-of-the-range models.As far as selfies are concerned, this model is devoid of the technology that embellishes the photos .So photo retouching is not exceptional.This K31 32 GB allows you to take pictures, but will not restore the brightness or colors.
This device contains only 32 GB of storage space; less than most.Forget about your music and movies, in addition to your many applications.With this amount available, you will need to quickly sort through what you want to keep and delete the rest.
The K31 32 GB in conclusion
Our analysis showed that this K31 32 GB wasn’t made for all purposes.It’s a model that’s mostly intended for troubleshooting.Only its well-placed price is interesting; it can be a temporary choice.
