Max 32 GB for mobility?
The main advantage of a smartphone is to be connected everywhere and therefore to be mobile.Mobility for surfing the internet, even on holiday.
A model that fits in your pocket: the Max 32 GB.Indeed, with its 6.1 inches, it is one of the smallest models currently available on the market.
It will be more difficult to click on this small area.Even less good for watching a movie.It’s a model made for telephoning, mainly.
Also note that wifi will be available to accompany you.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.You know where you stand.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 it is possible to have several active subscriptions in the device.And therefore several operators on this model.This will be convenient for those who travel regularly.
No protection on the screen of this Max 32 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.
What’s more, this mobile phone has one of the most powerful batteries on the market, with 5000 mAH.You won’t have to recharge in the middle of the day.
In conclusion on battery charging, Gionee has not changed anything compared to previous models, which means no 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.A handy device for watching videos.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.However, not all smartphones will do the trick.
We would have liked the Max 32 GB to have been more powerful on the multimedia side.It is one of the worst in this area.It’s hard to watch a video.And its screen resolution is low.It is rather advisable to listen to music.
The screen of this model has been switched to LCD IPS (In-Plane Switching).The result is less light scattering, resulting in a wider viewing angle and deeper tones.
Gionee has also designed this product for audio use.The 3.5mm jack input allows the connection of headphones and/or a microphone.
Bluetooth technology will allow you to listen to music with connected devices.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 right model to play with?
For games, you need performance.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.
After our tests, we find out that this Max 32 GB is in the lowest rankings.The components are starting to date (Unisoc SC9863A (28nm) processor), and the quality is less good.The rendering at the image level is inferior to the competition.
As far as RAM is concerned, you’re at the minimum required on a smartphone.You will only have 32 GB for your videos and music.Knowing that some users need more space, Gionee has provided a free space for an extension.
Intensive use of smartphone games also puts a lot of strain on the battery.On this model, there is little to worry about: it is on the best side of autonomy.Equipped with a power of 5000 mAh, you’ll be able to play all day long.And with its attractive design, you’ll never let it go again.
It will be necessary to limit the applications installed on this smartphone.unfortunately, it is at a very low reading comfort level.That’s gonna make it harder to read.The images are of lower quality, they can sometimes pixelize, and give a final rendering that is painful for the eyes.
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?
The quality of smartphones allows you to take pictures as well as many cameras.They have millions of pixels that capture details perfectly.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.Gionee is renowned for the quality of its sensors and the design of its smartphones.
Little progress has been made by Gionee.In fact, there is only one camera on this phone.
Don’t expect to see a nice picture on this Max 32 GB; a lower photo resolution than its competitors.With a definition of only 13 Mp, you will have lower quality images.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.This Max 32 GB allows you to take pictures, but will not restore the brightness or colors.
This smartphone has only 32 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.
In short, the Max 32 GB, the right choice?
This Max 32 GB is not good for all uses.With lesser performance, it does not reach the level of the best.In short, it is mainly the price that will guide your choice.
