What does mobility look like?
The intended use of your future phone is of utmost importance.Mobility for surfing the internet, even on holiday.
That One A9 16 Go looks really small.A size of 5.0 inches that would have been normal in the early days of smartphones, but not anymore.
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.
The device is equipped with Wifi.Convenient if you have cut off portability (abroad) and want to stay in touch with your loved ones.This smartphone comes with GPS.You know where you stand.Unless you’re at the bottom of a cave, you’ll be able to know where you are at any given moment.
If you have several packages at the same time, this phone is to be avoided.You can only have one active plan with this phone.With a national package, you will be forced abroad to take out your card and put another local one in its place.
Interesting point about this model is the presence of reinforced glass.The display will thus be protected from the multiple shocks that occur during the lifetime of the phone.It has almost become a necessity, as the probability of damaging his screen is so great.
Autonomy is one of the worst features on this model.With only 2150 mAh, it will be difficult to last a full day.This requires organization and always having a back-up charger available.
The last interesting point brought by HTC is the native fast charge function.In a few minutes, you have the battery almost back up to speed.
Interesting for the videos?
Smartphones have become the new televisions.It’s become a handy tool.You can also listen to continuous music anywhere.Access to the network allows you to watch a video stream whenever you feel like it.However, not all smartphones will do the trick.
In use, the One A9 16 Go is convincing on the multimedia part.It’s comparable to competing products.A screen that allows you to view videos without too much difficulty.Perfectly suited for viewing videos on the internet.Knowing moreover that the resolution is at level 1080 x 1920.
For the audio part, HTC wanted to do well.The 3.5mm jack input allows the connection of headphones and/or a microphone.
Using its Bluetooth functionality, you can pair your phone with all the devices in your home (speakers, TV…).The result is very pleasant to the ear.
And finally, for the sound, we were surprised not to find the stereo.
The right model to play with?
Impossible to play properly without a high-performance device.Games, but also applications require batteries.On 3D games, the right processor and quality graphics chip ensure smooth rendering.Simply put, the higher these features are, the better your gaming experience will be.
Our tests put this One A9 16 Go at the bottom of the list in terms of power.The Qualcomm MSM8952 Snapdragon 617 (28 nm) processor is an older generation.The colors are medium and the images are not fluid.
As far as RAM is concerned, this model is lightweight to say the least.You will only have 16 GB for your videos and music.But some of you will need more; that’s why HTC has left a free slot for a memory card.
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 2150 mAH will not allow you to enjoy it all day long.
Most of the applications we download today require performance.The reading comfort of this model is good.It is an interesting model and big enough with its 5.0 inches.All the documents that you have downloaded will be properly displayed on the screen.
The last point on the functionality side is the presence of NFC.It is a means of payment with the smartphone.
For audio or video use?
Having become an essential use of smartphones, the photo function has made great strides since the first generations.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.Generally speaking, HTC has developed a recognized know-how for smartphones.
As usual, HTC did it right, with the sensor part integrated on the Android system.So you have 1 objectives present on this smartphone.
With its photo resolution of 13 Mp, this One A9 16 Go is an interesting choice compared to other equivalent models.In fact, it’s enough to make some nice pictures or a few holiday movies.For more precise image rendering, it features HDR (High Dynamic Range) imaging.
This model is one of the least space-consuming with only 16 GB.Not enough to back up all your video files or music.And then we advise you to provide external backup solutions.
In short, the One A9 16 Go, the right choice?
Our tests have shown that this One A9 16 Go is sufficient for the majority of cases.It’s a very good quality model.With a well-placed price, it’s a wise choice.
