Among all the possible choices, it becomes difficult to choose the smartphone that best suits your needs.Depending on whether you are a seasoned user or a beginner, the choices are different.Already at the level of the operating system of this Smart 3.0 2 Go: here, it is an Android 9 with all the Emporia 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.
The design of this Smart 3.0 2 Go is well done and corresponds to consumer expectations.He’s on the average phone right now.With a well-placed price, it’s a wise choice.
Is the Smart 3.0 2 Go compatible for nomadic use?
The intended use of your future phone is of utmost importance.If for you, a phone is just for making calls, you probably won’t need a smartphone.
That Smart 3.0 2 Go looks really small.In fact, it’s one of the smallest (5.5 inches) compared to other smartphones.
It will be more difficult to click on this small area.Even less good for watching a movie.All in all, perfect for a phone call.
Considered as a gadget by some, it does not manage packages or multiple operators.This phone does not have dual SIM.It will force those who have a local package and who bring their phone with them when they travel, to take out the card and put in the one for the country of destination.
No protection on the screen of this Smart 3.0 2 Go.No protection against scratches or shocks that can occur during the lifetime of all smartphones.If you decide on this model, remember to use a transparent tempered glass film, adapted to the shape of the screen.
Because of its battery, the range of this model is one of the worst.With a power of 1020 mAh, you will be forced to recharge more often.You’ll think about having an external battery backup nearby.
And since Emporia 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.
Interesting for the videos?
For many, phones are beginning to replace TV sets.It’s a device that is always at hand.The same goes for listening to music.Because of the power of smartphones and their connectivity, you can watch whatever you want.However, the first smartphone that comes along is not necessarily going to fit.
Unsurprisingly, this model is not really made for multimedia.He’s at the bottom of our ranking.The 5.5-inch screen is poorly suited for exercise.For information, the resolution is 720 x 1440.At the limit, it will be suitable for listening to music.
Emporia sought to improve the audio experience.You have an input for the 3.5mm plug of your headphones.
Bluetooth technology will allow you to listen to music with connected devices.A technology that ensures quality sound.
And, on the nice but missing functionality side, we have the stereo speakers; the mono sound is shallower.
The Emporia phone, for video games?
Games are performance consuming.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 short, the more advanced the components are, the better the gameplay will be.
We’ve been playing for several hours and it seems to us that this Smart 3.0 2 Go is incredible.It is not necessary to always have the latest generation of components, but it helps for the rendering.The processor, is a Mediatek MT6260A.A chip that brings fluidity and quality to videos.
As far as RAM is concerned, you’re at the minimum required on a smartphone.You will only have 2 GB for your videos and music.In fact, for some passionate users, Emporia has provided an extra space to add more.
Please note that in intensive use, the battery may not hold.The endurance of this model is one of the weakest.Its 1020 mAH power will force you to recharge before the end of the day.
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: 167* 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, and regrettably, this model does not allow for contactless payments.
For audio or video use?
The quality of smartphones allows you to take pictures as well as many 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.Editing and sharing options should also be analyzed.Emporia has a long history of designing quality products.
The features of the camera lens are perfectly connected to the Android 9 system part.And for an even better result, this phone contains 1 lenses.
The screen resolution of this Smart 3.0 2 Go is among the lowest on the market.With a definition of only 2 Mp, you will have lower quality images.Unfortunately for image lovers, it does not have HDR.
This smartphone has only 2 GB; that’s very little in terms of storage.Limited space to store your holiday photos and movies.To put it plainly, you will have to make room regularly or your memory will be saturated.
