This A60 16 Go is not good for all uses.It’s a model that’s mostly intended for troubleshooting.In the end, it’s a second choice in addition to your main smartphone.

Is the A60 16 Go compatible for nomadic use?
Your smartphone must be able to accompany you at all times.Mobility for surfing the internet, even on holiday.
The A60 16 Go is almost a model.A size of 5 inches that would have been normal in the early days of smartphones, but not anymore.
It will be more difficult to click on this small area.Even less good for watching a movie.All in all, perfect for a phone call.
In addition, through its Wlan option, you can connect to wifi terminals.This allows you to easily have a connection with a comfortable speed.This smartphone comes with GPS.No more need for a map to get around a city or a country.Important when you’re away from home.
Several Sims can be activated on this smartphone.This means that you can manage several packages at the same time.This will even be possible with competing operators.This feature will be useful for travellers among you, who will be able to integrate a prepaid SIM card of the country they are in, without having to remove the main card.
Detail that is missing on this A60 16 Go is the absence of reinforced glass.No protection against scratches or the shocks of everyday life.It is a good idea to purchase an adaptable screen protector as a complement.Because of its battery, the range of this model is one of the worst.With only 2800 mAh, it will be difficult to last a full day.Keep your charger handy.
In conclusion on battery charging, Blackview has not changed anything compared to previous models, which means no fast charge.Convenient to use, it would have made it possible to recharge quickly.
The right model for multimedia use?
More and more of us watch our phones at the expense of our TVs every day.It’s become a handy tool.The same goes for listening to music.They are quite powerful and quite connected by streaming video.Careful, that doesn’t mean any smartphone will do.
This is not a model designed for multimedia.He’s at the bottom of our ranking.Its screen is not big enough to enjoy a video, let alone a movie.And its screen resolution is low.However, you can use it to listen to your music playlist.
The screen of this model has been switched to LCD IPS (In-Plane Switching).That is to say that it offers very good colours and very wide viewing angles.
On the audio side, Blackview wanted to do it right.A 3.5mm input to connect your headphones or speakers.
To transfer the sound from the phone, you will have the option via bluetooth.The result is very pleasant to the ear.
Finally, we deplore the absence of stereo speakers.
The Blackview phone, for video games?
Smartphone games now require power.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.Simply put, the higher these features are, the better your gaming experience will be.
After our tests, we find out that this A60 16 Go is in the lowest rankings.The components are starting to date (Mediatek MT6580A (28 nm) processor), and the quality is less good.The visual result is below other smartphones in this category.
As far as RAM is concerned, you’re at the minimum required on a smartphone.It’s 16 GB that have been installed, and that’s not much.And because Blackview predicted that some of you would be demanding gamers, you have the ability to expand the available memory.
If you play a lot for several hours you will find that the battery is low.The result is at the bottom of our ranking.With a power of 2800 mAH, it will need to be recharged during the day.
Performance and good display were expected for the possible applications of this model.Reading comfort where the display is not up to scratch.This is an entry-level model: 294* pixels per inch.You’ll have to force it to read the documents clearly.
Finally, and regrettably, this model does not allow for contactless payments.
What about the videos?
The quality of smartphones allows you to take pictures as well as many cameras.For a long time, manufacturers have been communicating about the millions of pixels their devices were equipped with.But this characteristic is not everything.Editing and sharing options should also be analyzed.Blackview has long been designing smartphones with top quality photo sensors.
This model is equipped with the necessary components integrated in Android.Thus, this model has 2 objectives.
The resolution of this model is not very efficient.A photo resolution of 8 Mp which gives a low quality result.And last point about the image options, there is no HDR in this model.
As far as selfies are concerned, this model is devoid of the technology that embellishes the photos .So photo retouching is not exceptional.This A60 16 Go allows you to take pictures, but will not restore the brightness or colors.
This device contains only 16 GB of storage space; less than most.Limited space to store your holiday photos and movies.And then we advise you to provide external backup solutions.
The A60 16 Go – in a nutshell
The design of this A60 16 Go corresponds to an entry-level product.It’s a model that’s mostly intended for troubleshooting.In the end, it’s a second choice in addition to your main smartphone.
