The Diamond Selfie Lite 16 Go adapted for internet use and travel ?
Your smartphone must be able to accompany you at all times.You will use it to make phone calls, but also to surf and search for information on the internet.
The Diamond Selfie Lite 16 Go is almost a model.A modest 5.0 -inch screen, which on the other hand is easier to fit in a pocket and easier to hold.
A size that does not invite fluid use on the internet.Don’t imagine watching a movie in good conditions either.It is in these cases that you will regret a bigger screen.
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 phone is equipped with a GPS chip.Your travels will be facilitated, even abroad.Unless you’re at the bottom of a cave, you’ll be able to know where you are at any given moment.
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 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.
Also note that this Diamond Selfie Lite 16 Go is equipped with a reinforced glass.Insurance against accidents such as shocks or scratches.This can happen when you have to move around a lot with your smartphone.
Because of its battery, the range of this model is one of the worst.With only 2300 mAh, it will be difficult to last a full day.Keep your charger handy.
On the question of loading, Archos has done in the economy, that is to say without the fast charge.This is very useful when the smartphone battery is empty and you’re in a hurry.
The right choice for watching movies?
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.They are quite powerful and quite connected by streaming video.However, not all smartphones will do the trick.
With a low reading comfort, the Diamond Selfie Lite 16 Go is not designed for multimedia.He’s one of the worst in the business.It’s hard to watch a video.The resolution is low: 720 x 1280.However, you can use it to listen to your music playlist.
This model benefits from the screen with Amoled.This optimises brightness and viewing angles.
Archos has also designed this product for audio use.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 sound result is of a good level.
Finally, we deplore the absence of stereo speakers.
The Archos phone, for video games?
Impossible to play properly without a high-performance device.Batteries are put to the test every day due to the use of mobile internet and applications.On 3D games, the right processor and quality graphics chip ensure smooth rendering.In other words, the power of the technical components is essential to enjoy the game phases.
In the end, we found that the power of this Diamond Selfie Lite 16 Go is below its competitors.The Mediatek MT6753 (28 nm) processor is weak and the graphics processing unit of a lower quality than we would have liked.The visual result is below other smartphones in this category.
In terms of storage memory, it’s in the worst.This phone only defaults to 16 GB; that’s probably fair.Knowing that some users need more space, Archos has provided a free space for an extension.
In case you play a lot, you’re going to strain the drums.Moreover, this model is one of the least efficient at the moment.With a power of 2300 mAH, it will need to be recharged during the day.
As with games, this smartphone is not intended to have many applications.unfortunately, it is at a very low reading comfort level.Its entry-level design with a smaller-than-average screen gives a disappointing result.You’ll have to force it to read the documents clearly.
Finally, and regrettably, this model does not allow for contactless payments.
Analysis of Audio and Video functions
Over time, smartphones have become almost as good as cameras.The reason being related to the millions of pixels they are equipped with.However, this is not the only criterion to be taken into account.Being able to retouch the obtained photos is appreciated.Archos is renowned for the quality of its sensors and the design of its smartphones.
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 720 x 1280 screen resolution makes this Diamond Selfie Lite 16 Go an excellent smartphone, better than most of the competition.You are sure to make videos of excellent quality.Note that it does not have the HDR function which would have improved the images.
The resolution is sufficient for your selfies.This makes it easier for you to retouch the photo.This Diamond Selfie Lite 16 Go is really easy to access for the retouching part of the images.
This smartphone has only 16 GB; that’s very little in terms of storage.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.
Finally, the Diamond Selfie Lite 16 Go…
Our tests have shown that this Diamond Selfie Lite 16 Go is sufficient for the majority of cases.It’s a very good quality model.And with a contained price tag, it’s finally good.
