And to begin with…
Among all the possible choices, it becomes difficult to choose the smartphone that best suits your needs.For heavy or occasional use, the models to be chosen will not be the same.Already at the level of the operating system of this Note 8 16 GB: here, it is an Android with all the Ulefone ecosystem that goes with it.
And now that you know, our tests will let you know if, in terms of features and functionality, this smartphone is right for you.
This Note 8 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.

Is the Note 8 16 GB compatible for nomadic use?
The issue of mobility is important when it comes to a smartphone.Beyond its telephone function, we expect it to be as good for surfing the internet and usable when travelling.
That Note 8 16 GB looks really small.A modest 5.5-inch screen, which on the other hand is easier to fit in a pocket and easier to hold.
Obviously with this size, it is not easy to surf the net.Don’t imagine watching a movie in good conditions either.The primary use of this phone would be to make calls…
In addition, through its Wlan option, you can connect to wifi terminals.You will be able to enjoy quality web access, anywhere, even on the other side of the world. This phone is equipped with a GPS chip.Your travels will be facilitated, even abroad.Unless you’re in the middle of the desert.
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.And therefore several operators on this model.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.
It is important to note that this model does not include reinforced glass.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.
Autonomy is one of the worst features on this model.There is only 2700 mAh, which is low for normal use.You’ll think about having an external battery backup nearby.
And since Ulefone did not consider it useful to put a fast charge on this model, we will have to wait.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?
More and more of us watch our phones at the expense of our TVs every day.It’s become a handy tool.It even replaces the radio, or to listen to music.Access to the network allows you to watch a video stream whenever you feel like it.But not all phones are suitable for this purpose.
This is not a model designed for multimedia.He’s at the bottom of our ranking.It’s hard to watch a video.For information, the resolution is 442 x 960.However, you can use it to listen to your music playlist.
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.
Ulefone sought to improve the audio experience.This model has a 3.5mm jack input, and allows your phone to play good quality music.
Bluetooth technology will allow you to listen to music with connected devices.The transmission is fluid and the sound is clear.
And finally, for the sound, we were surprised not to find the stereo.
The right choice to play online?
Impossible to play properly without a high-performance device.Games, but also applications require batteries.To play and have a smooth picture, you need to have the CPU and GPU at its best.In short, technology and the latest generation of components provide better playability.
In the end, we found that the power of this Note 8 16 GB is below its competitors.The Mediatek MT6580 (28 nm) processor is an older generation.Which makes it look just passable.
A smartphone with RAM, but the bare minimum.This model has 16 GB, which is low.But some of you will need more; that’s why Ulefone has left a free slot for a memory card.
If you play a lot for several hours you will find that the battery is low.Unfortunately in the case of this model, it is one of the worst.The power of 2700 mAH will require you to recharge during the day.
Performance and good display were expected for the possible applications of this model.A below-average configuration with a reduced screen size of 5.5 inches.This is an entry-level model: 192* pixels per inch.The precision of the image, the colours; so many elements that will limit your desire to read on this phone.
Finally, it should be noted that NFC (contactless payment) is not possible with this smartphone.
Efficiency for audio and video
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.But this characteristic is not everything.Being able to retouch the obtained photos is appreciated.Ulefone has long been designing smartphones with top quality photo sensors.
On the other hand it’s a little light for the camera part.There is thus only one lens, to be installed on this model.
The screen resolution of this Note 8 16 GB is among the lowest on the market.An image resolution of 5 Mp which will give a mediocre result.As far as selfies are concerned, this model is devoid of the technology that embellishes the photos .Also, it is difficult to retouch images properly.The sensor of this Note 8 16 GB is of very average quality and will dissuade you from using this smartphone for this kind of exercise.
This phone offers very little space: 16 GB; this is the smallest phone available.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.
The Note 8 16 GB in conclusion
Following our tests, we see that this Note 8 16 GB is not good for all cases.It can be a temporary choice or a temporary fix.In conclusion, it’s a pricey choice.
