The Oxygen 68 XL 32 Go, enough for internet use?
The issue of mobility is important when it comes to a smartphone.Mobility for surfing the internet, even on holiday.
Here we are in the presence of a rather large telephone.It doesn’t matter, probably if during your various activities, with its 6.85 -inch size, your smartphone will stay in your bag.A disadvantage that turns into an advantage for surfing the net.Reading will be easier on this type of device.Smooth web browsing, and pleasant interaction with the images displayed on the screen.Surfing with this phone is really nice.
In addition, it natively offers Wifi technology.You will be able to enjoy quality web access, anywhere, even on the other side of the world.This smartphone comes with GPS.No more need for a map to get around a city or a country.Effective functionality almost everywhere.
Several Sims can be activated on this smartphone.This means that you can manage several packages at the same time.That is, several operators at the same time.An interesting option abroad.
No protection on the screen of this Oxygen 68 XL 32 Go.No protection against scratches or shocks that can occur during the lifetime of all smartphones.It is a good idea to purchase an adaptable screen protector as a complement.For the battery, this phone includes one of the most powerful with 5000 mAH and therefore a better autonomy.That means less stress when you’re on the go, or in the middle of an online game.
And since Archos 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.
The right choice for watching movies?
The use of the telephone now exceeds that of television.It’s become a handy tool.You can also listen to continuous music anywhere.They are quite powerful and quite connected by streaming video.Careful, that doesn’t mean any smartphone will do.
Unsurprisingly, this model is not really made for multimedia.He’s not doing as well as most of his competitors.An 6.85 -inch screen with overly vivid colors.A resolution which is moreover in 640 x 1352.He’ll be more comfortable listening 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.
Archos 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 sound result is of a good level.
Finally, we deplore the absence of stereo speakers.
Is it suitable for games?
Games are performance consuming.Games, but also applications require batteries.For smooth and responsive rendering on 3D video games, it is necessary to combine a good processor with a good graphics processor.In short, the more advanced the components are, the better the gameplay will be.
What came out of our tests is that the Oxygen 68 XL 32 Go is low in power.Its Mediatek MT6762 Helio P22 (12 nm) processor is not very powerful, and the GPU is not at the expected level.The colors are medium and the images are not fluid.
We’re at the standard level in terms of RAM.The standard capacity is 32 GB.But some of you will need more; that’s why Archos has left a free slot for a memory card.
Intensive use of smartphone games also puts a lot of strain on the battery.Here you have the best in the market.A power of 5000 mAh will give you all day to play.And with its attractive design, you’ll never let it go again.
We would have appreciated a higher level for displaying applications.unfortunately, it is at a very low reading comfort level.This is an entry-level model: 218* pixels per inch.Even if it remains legible, the clarity of the image and the display are below the competition.
Finally, and regrettably, this model does not allow for contactless payments.
Concerning audio or video use?
People have been using smartphones for some time now… to take pictures.For a long time, manufacturers have been communicating about the millions of pixels their devices were equipped with.But this characteristic is not everything.Editing and sharing options should also be analyzed.Archos has long been designing smartphones with top quality photo sensors.
This model is equipped with the necessary components integrated in Android.As it happens, to improve the result, this phone carries 2 objectives.
The resolution of this model is not very efficient.A definition in 8 Mp, which is necessarily less good than on top-of-the-range models.Unfortunately for image lovers, it does not have HDR.
You will limit selfies with this model, because of the poor quality of the rendering.Reprocessing photos is not intuitive.This Oxygen 68 XL 32 Go is good for telephoning, but not for retouching images.
This device is provided with 32 GB of storage space.So much space to store videos, photos and applications.And with that, you’ll have some time before you have to transfer them to your computer.
Finally, the Oxygen 68 XL 32 Go…
Our tests have shown that this Oxygen 68 XL 32 Go is sufficient for the majority of cases.It’s average, but still a very good product.With a well-placed price, it’s a wise choice.
