As an introduction to this analysis
When it comes to comparing smartphones with each other, you have several options.For heavy or occasional use, the models to be chosen will not be the same.The Note 8 16 GB detailed in this article uses an Android operating system, with all that that implies.
If this first characteristic is not blocking for you, let’s go to the tests to find out if it is adapted to your uses.
Unfortunately, our analysis showed that this product was below what you would expect from a smartphone.With lesser performance, it does not reach the level of the best.In short, if you choose it, it will be mainly for its price.

What does mobility look like?
The intended use of your future phone is of utmost importance.You will use it to make phone calls, but also to surf and search for information on the internet.
The Note 8 16 GB is almost a model.Indeed, with its 5.5 inches, it is one of the smallest models currently available on the market.
Obviously with this size, it is not easy to surf the net.Don’t imagine watching a movie in good conditions either.The primary use of this phone would be to make calls…
In addition, through its Wlan option, you can connect to wifi terminals.This allows you to easily have a connection with a comfortable speed.There’s GPS on this phone.Your travels will be facilitated, even abroad.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.This will even be possible with competing operators.It can be interesting when you travel abroad.
We found out that this Note 8 16 GB doesn’t have reinforced glass.It’s hard to predict that a device will never fall down.
If you decide on this model, remember to use a transparent tempered glass film, adapted to the shape of the screen.
Autonomy is one of the worst features on this model.There is only 2700 mAh, which is low for normal use.As a precaution, you may have an external battery available nearby.
And since Ulefone did not consider it useful to put a fast charge on this model, we will have to wait.Convenient to use, it would have made it possible to recharge quickly.
Is this device good for listening to music and watching videos?
Smartphones have become the new televisions.It’s become a handy tool.You can also listen to continuous music anywhere.They are quite powerful and quite connected by streaming video.However, the first smartphone that comes along is not necessarily going to fit.
Unsurprisingly, this model is not really made for multimedia.It is one of the worst in this area.The 5.5-inch screen is poorly suited for exercise.For information, the resolution is 442 x 960.It is rather advisable to listen to music.
This model has an IPS LCD screen.The visual result is very good no matter from what angle you look at the screen.
Ulefone sought to improve the audio experience.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 transmission is fluid and the sound is clear.
On the sound side, we find that there are no stereo speakers.
Ulefone’s smartphone: a good choice for making video calls?
For games, you need performance.This implies that the batteries must be able to keep up.The processor and graphics chip must also be of high quality to make the image fluid.In short, technology and the latest generation of components provide better playability.
Our tests put this Note 8 16 GB at the bottom of the list in terms of power.The Mediatek MT6580 (28 nm) processor is an older generation.The rendering at the image level is inferior to the competition.
In terms of storage memory, it’s in the worst.It’s 16 GB that have been installed, and that’s not much.In fact, for some passionate users, Ulefone has provided an extra space to add more.
Forget the long video game sessions on this model.Unfortunately in the case of this model, it is one of the worst.Its power of 2700 mAH will not allow you to enjoy it all day long.
We would have appreciated a higher level for displaying applications.Reading comfort where the display is not up to scratch.Its entry-level design with a smaller-than-average screen gives a disappointing result.The precision of the image, the colours; so many elements that will limit your desire to read on this phone.
Please note that this model does not allow contactless payments.
The tool to make photos, movies?
People have been using smartphones for some time now… to take pictures.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.Ulefone has long been designing smartphones with top quality photo sensors.
It’s a surprise from Ulefone.There is indeed only one lens on this phone.
The screen resolution of this Note 8 16 GB is among the lowest on the market.A definition in 5 Mp, which is necessarily less good than on top-of-the-range models.We do not recommend this device to anyone who regularly selfies with their smartphone.So photo retouching is not exceptional.This Note 8 16 GB is good for telephoning, but not for retouching images.
This device contains only 16 GB of storage space; less than most.Not enough to back up all your video files or music.To put it plainly, you will have to make room regularly or your memory will be saturated.
What about the Note 8 16 GB?
Following our tests, we see that this Note 8 16 GB is not good for all cases.It’s a model that’s mostly intended for troubleshooting.In the end, it’s a second choice in addition to your main smartphone.
