The 6.1 Plus 4 GB, the right choice for surfing the internet?
The issue of mobility is important when it comes to a smartphone. You will use it to make phone calls, but also to surf and search for information on the internet.
6.1 Plus 4 GB’s really small.A modest 5.45-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.Forget the videos, too.It’s a model made for telephoning, mainly.
In addition, through its Wlan option, you can connect to wifi terminals.This means that the connection will be easier during your internet browsing.This smartphone comes with GPS.No more need for a map to get around a city or a country.Unless you’re in the middle of the desert.
Several Sims can be activated on this smartphone.This means that it is possible to have several active subscriptions in the device.That is, several operators at the same time.An interesting option abroad.
Detail that is missing on this 6.1 Plus 4 GB is the absence of reinforced glass.It’s hard to predict that a device will never fall down.
You will need to plan for the purchase of a protective film.
Unfortunately, on the battery side it’s not so good.With only 2500 mAh, it will be difficult to last a full day.This requires organization and always having a back-up charger available.
On the question of loading, Nokia 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.
Is this device good for listening to music and watching videos?
Smartphones have become the new televisions.It’s become a handy tool.You can also simply 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.
We would have liked the 6.1 Plus 4 GB to have been more powerful on the multimedia side.He’s at the bottom of our ranking.The 5.45-inch screen is poorly suited for exercise.For information, the resolution is 480 x 960.He’ll be more comfortable listening to music.
This model has an IPS LCD screen.That is to say that it offers very good colours and very wide viewing angles.
Nokia 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.
Finally, we deplore the absence of stereo speakers.
Is it suitable for games?
Smartphone games now require power.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.In other words, the power of the technical components is essential to enjoy the game phases.
Our analysis shows that this 6.1 Plus 4 GB is average.A powerful KTKT processor and a good quality GPU.And with the graphics processor, the visual result is fluid.
As far as RAM is concerned, this model is lightweight to say the least.It’s 4 GB that have been installed, and that’s not much.Knowing that some users need more space, Nokia has provided a free space for an extension.
Forget the long video game sessions on this model.Unfortunately in the case of this model, it is one of the worst.Its power of 2500 mAH will not allow you to enjoy it all day long.
It will be necessary to limit the applications installed on this smartphone.A below-average configuration with a reduced screen size of 5.45 inches.It won’t be easy to read the downloaded documents.The precision of the image, the colours; so many elements that will limit your desire to read on this phone.
And to finish on the application part, we note that the payment function via telephone (the NFC), is not available here.
Concerning audio or video use?
Over time, smartphones have become almost as good as cameras.For a long time, manufacturers have been communicating about the millions of pixels their devices were equipped with.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.Nokia is renowned for the quality of its sensors and the design of its smartphones.
Little progress has been made by Nokia.This model thus has only one objective.
The screen resolution of this 6.1 Plus 4 GB is among the lowest on the market.A definition in 8 Mp, which is necessarily less good than on top-of-the-range models.And last point about the image options, there is no HDR in this model.
As far as selfies are concerned, this model is devoid of the technology that embellishes the photos .So photo retouching is not exceptional.This 6.1 Plus 4 GB allows you to take pictures, but will not restore the brightness or colors.
This smartphone has only 4 GB; that’s very little in terms of storage.Forget about your music and movies, in addition to your many applications.And then we advise you to provide external backup solutions.
The 6.1 Plus 4 GB – in a nutshell
Following our tests, we see that this 6.1 Plus 4 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.
