And to begin with…
How will you use your Smartphone?Depending on the use that will be made of them, it is mandatory to compare several models with each other.Considering that this is not a prohibitive measure, let’s see if this article is made for you.
BlackBerry provides us with a well-balanced phone here.Performing well, it almost reaches the level of the best.All in all, a good price/quality ratio.
The Bold 9900 sw 8 Go adapted for internet use and travel ?
The main advantage of a smartphone is to be connected everywhere and therefore to be mobile.Beyond its telephone function, we expect it to be as good for surfing the internet and usable when travelling.
Bold 9900 sw 8 Go’s really small.In fact, it’s one of the smallest (2.44 inches) compared to other smartphones.
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…
Also note that wifi will be available to accompany you.Convenient if you have cut off portability (abroad) and want to stay in touch with your loved ones.This smartphone comes with GPS.You’ll appreciate not having to ask for directions anymore.Important when you’re away from home.
If having several lines in the same device is essential for you, go ahead.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 Bold 9900 sw 8 Go.No protection against scratches or shocks that can occur during the lifetime of all smartphones.You will need to plan for the purchase of a protective film.
Unfortunately, on the battery side it’s not so good.There is only 1500 mAh, which is low for normal use.This requires organization and always having a back-up charger available.
In conclusion on battery charging, BlackBerry has not changed anything compared to previous models, which means no fast charge.Yet it has become almost indispensable, due to the speed at which batteries are now draining.
Is this device good for listening to music and watching videos?
Smartphones have become the new televisions.Perfectly designed for our daily needs.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, not all smartphones will do the trick.
We would have liked the Bold 9900 sw 8 Go to have been more powerful on the multimedia side.He’s one of the worst in the business.The 2.44 -inch screen is poorly suited for exercise.For information, the resolution is 480 x 360.It is rather advisable to listen to music.
On the audio side, BlackBerry wanted to do it right.A 3.5mm input to connect your headphones or speakers.
With its OS version installed, the phone supports wireless Hi-Fi audio via Bluetooth.The transmission is fluid and the sound is clear.
And finally, for the sound, we were surprised not to find the stereo.
The right choice to play online?
For games, you need performance.The same applies to the ever-increasing number of applications that reduce battery capacity.On 3D games, the right processor and quality graphics chip ensure smooth rendering.In other words, the power of the technical components is essential to enjoy the game phases.
In fact, for some passionate users, BlackBerry has provided an extra space to add more.
In case you play a lot, you’re going to strain the drums.The result is at the bottom of our ranking.The power of 1500 mAH will require you to recharge during the day.
As with games, this smartphone is not intended to have many applications.The components do not allow for a quality display.Its entry-level design with a smaller-than-average screen gives a disappointing result.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.
The tool to make photos, movies?
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.Being able to retouch the obtained photos is appreciated.BlackBerry has long been designing smartphones with top quality photo sensors.
Little progress has been made by BlackBerry.In fact, there is only one camera on this phone.
And last point about the image options, there is no HDR in this model.
The Bold 9900 sw 8 Go – in a nutshell
Our tests have shown that this Bold 9900 sw 8 Go is sufficient for the majority of cases.Performing well, it almost reaches the level of the best.With a well-placed price, it’s a wise choice.
