The Galaxy M01 Core 16 GB, the right choice for surfing the internet?
The issue of mobility is important when it comes to a smartphone.Mobility for surfing the internet, even on holiday.
That Galaxy M01 Core 16 GB looks really small.Indeed, with its 5.3 inches, it is one of the smallest models currently available on the market.
Obviously with this size, it is not easy to surf the net.Watching movies will be less enjoyable.It is in these cases that you will regret a bigger screen.
The device is equipped with Wifi.You will be able to enjoy quality web access, anywhere, even on the other side of the world.There’s GPS on this phone.You’ll appreciate not having to ask for directions anymore.Effective functionality almost everywhere.
Several Sims can be activated on this smartphone.In other words, having several subscriptions with the same device.This will even be possible with competing operators.An interesting option abroad.
We found out that this Galaxy M01 Core 16 GB doesn’t have reinforced glass.No protection against scratches or the shocks of everyday life.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 3000 mAh, you will be forced to recharge more often.This requires organization and always having a back-up charger available.
And since Samsung 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.
Analysis of multimedia functions.
For many, phones are beginning to replace TV sets.It’s become a handy tool.You can also listen to continuous music anywhere.They are quite powerful and quite connected by streaming video.However, not all smartphones will do the trick.
We would have liked the Galaxy M01 Core 16 GB to have been more powerful on the multimedia side.He’s at the bottom of our ranking.The 5.3 -inch screen is poorly suited for exercise.The resolution is low: 720 x 1480.It is rather advisable to listen to music.
For the audio part, Samsung wanted to do well.A 3.5mm input to connect your headphones or speakers.
Bluetooth technology will allow you to listen to music with connected devices.A technology that ensures quality sound.
On the sound side, we find that there are no stereo speakers.
The Samsung smartphone for online or local games
Games are performance consuming.Games, but also applications require batteries.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.
After our tests, we find out that this Galaxy M01 Core 16 GB is in the lowest rankings.The Mediatek MT6739 (28 nm) processor is weak and the graphics processing unit of a lower quality than we would have liked.The rendering at the image level is inferior to the competition.
In terms of storage memory, it’s in the worst.This model has 16 GB, which is low.In fact, for some passionate users, Samsung has provided an extra space to add more.
If you play a lot for several hours you will find that the battery is low.Moreover, this model is one of the least efficient at the moment.The power of 3000 mAH will require you to recharge during the day.
We would have appreciated a higher level for displaying applications.A below-average configuration with a reduced screen size of 5.3 inches.This is an entry-level model: 311* pixels per inch.The images are of lower quality, they can sometimes pixelize, and give a final rendering that is painful for the eyes.
Finally, it should be noted that NFC (contactless payment) is not possible with this smartphone.
Concerning audio or video use?
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 retouch the obtained photos is appreciated.Samsung is renowned for the quality of its sensors and the design of its smartphones.
The company has done the bare minimum in this case.There is thus only one lens, to be installed on this model.
Don’t expect to see a nice picture on this Galaxy M01 Core 16 GB; a lower photo resolution than its competitors.A definition in 8 Mp, which is necessarily less good than on top-of-the-range models.This model is one of the least space-consuming with only 16 GB.That means you’ll have to make choices between videos, photos and applications.To put it plainly, you will have to make room regularly or your memory will be saturated.
Finally, the Galaxy M01 Core 16 GB…
This Galaxy M01 Core 16 GB is not good for all uses.This model is very far from the top of the range, and may eventually meet the need for a first phone for a child.Only its well-placed price is interesting; it can be a temporary choice.
