The Leap 16 Go, enough for internet use?
The issue of mobility is important when it comes to a smartphone.Beyond its telephone function, we expect it to be as good for surfing the internet and usable when travelling.
That Leap 16 Go looks really small.In fact, it’s one of the smallest (5 inches) compared to other smartphones.
A size that does not invite fluid use on the internet.Don’t imagine watching a movie in good conditions either.The primary use of this phone would be to make calls…
The device is equipped with Wifi.This allows you to easily have a connection with a comfortable speed.This smartphone has 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.You can only have one active plan with this phone.If you don’t want to increase the bill on your next trip, consider replacing your national SIM with a local one.
Detail that is missing on this Leap 16 Go is the absence of 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.Unfortunately, on the battery side it’s not so good.The 2800 mAh will barely be enough to last a day between calls, texts or games.Keep your charger handy.
And since BlackBerry did not consider it useful to put a fast charge on this model, we will have to wait.Too bad, it’s a very interesting feature today.
The right choice for watching movies?
Smartphones have become the new televisions.It’s a device that is always at hand.It even replaces the radio, or to listen to music.Because of the power of smartphones and their connectivity, you can watch whatever you want.But not all phones are suitable for this purpose.
This is not a model designed for multimedia.It is one of the worst in this area.The 5-inch screen is poorly suited for exercise.A resolution which is moreover in 720 x 1280.At the limit, it will be suitable for listening to music.
The screen of this model has been switched to LCD IPS (In-Plane Switching).The result is less light scattering, resulting in a wider viewing angle and deeper tones.
On the audio side, BlackBerry wanted to do it right.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.A technology that ensures quality sound.
And, on the nice but missing functionality side, we have the stereo speakers; the mono sound is shallower.
BlackBerry’s smartphone: a good choice for making video calls?
Impossible to play properly without a high-performance device.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.Simply put, the higher these features are, the better your gaming experience will be.
In terms of storage memory, it’s in the worst.You will only have 16 GB for your videos and music.In fact, for some passionate users, BlackBerry has provided an extra space to add more.
Forget the long video game sessions on this model.Moreover, this model is one of the least efficient at the moment.Its power of 2800 mAH will not allow you to enjoy it all day long.
As with games, this smartphone is not intended to have many applications.The components do not allow for a quality display.This is an entry-level model: 294* pixels per inch.Even if it remains legible, the clarity of the image and the display are below the competition.
Finally, and regrettably, this model does not allow for contactless payments.
Efficiency for audio and video
Over time, smartphones have become almost as good as cameras.They have millions of pixels that capture details perfectly.But this characteristic is not everything.Being able to share photos taken with one click is also important.BlackBerry is renowned for the quality of its sensors and the design of its smartphones.
The company has done the bare minimum in this case.There is thus only one lens, to be installed on this model.
Don’t expect to see a nice picture on this Leap 16 Go; a lower photo resolution than its competitors.A definition in 8 Mp, which is necessarily less good than on top-of-the-range models.Unfortunately for image lovers, it does not have HDR.
It’s not the best device for making selfies.Reprocessing photos is not intuitive.The sensor of this Leap 16 Go is of very average quality and will dissuade you from using this smartphone for this kind of exercise.
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.
Finally, the Leap 16 Go…
Our tests have shown that this Leap 16 Go is sufficient for the majority of cases.This model is average, and will meet most of your needs.In conclusion, it is a good product.
