125 for mobility?
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 125 looks really small.A size of 2.4 inches that would have been normal in the early days of smartphones, but not anymore.
That means it’s not practical for internet browsing.Don’t imagine watching a movie in good conditions either.It’s a model made for telephoning, mainly.
It is sometimes convenient to have several phones in one. And this model can handle multiple Sims.In other words, having several subscriptions with the same device.This model allows you to manage several operators.This will be convenient for those who travel regularly.
It is important to note that this model does not include reinforced glass.It’s hard to predict that a device will never fall down.
It is a good idea to purchase an adaptable screen protector as a complement.Autonomy is one of the worst features on this model.There is only 1020 mAh, which is low for normal use.This requires organization and always having a back-up charger available.
In conclusion on battery charging, Nokia has not changed anything compared to previous models, which means no fast charge.This is very useful when the smartphone battery is empty and you’re in a hurry.
The right model for multimedia use?
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.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, the first smartphone that comes along is not necessarily going to fit.
This is not a model designed for multimedia.He’s not doing as well as most of his competitors.It’s hard to watch a video.And its screen resolution is low.It is rather advisable to listen to music.
Nokia sought to improve the audio experience.A 3.5mm input to connect your headphones or speakers.
With its OS version installed, the phone supports wireless Hi-Fi audio via Bluetooth.A technology that ensures quality sound.
And finally, for the sound, we were surprised not to find the stereo.
Nokia’s smartphone: a good choice for making video calls?
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.Simply put, the higher these features are, the better your gaming experience will be.
After our tests, we find out that this 125 is in the lowest rankings.The rendering at the image level is inferior to the competition.
And unfortunately, Nokia didn’t think it would be useful to add a memory extension next to the original memory location.
If you play a lot for several hours you will find that the battery is low.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.
Performance and good display were expected for the possible applications of this model.A below-average configuration with a reduced screen size of 2.4 inches.This is an entry-level model: 167* pixels per inch.Even if it remains legible, the clarity of the image and the display are below the competition.
Please note that this model does not allow contactless payments.
Concerning audio or video use?
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.Other important criteria must be taken into account, such as zoom, HDR function, Flash Led, Panorama mode.The possible retouching via application is also interesting.Nokia has long been designing smartphones with top quality photo sensors.
What about the 125?
Following our tests, we see that this 125 is not good for all cases.This model is very far from the top of the range, and may eventually meet the need for a first phone for a child.In short, it is mainly the price that will guide your choice.
