As an introduction to this analysis
How will you use your Smartphone?For heavy or occasional use, the models to be chosen will not be the same.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.
Following our tests, we see that this Comfort 16 Mo is not good for all cases.It’s a model that’s mostly intended for troubleshooting.In short, if you choose it, it will be mainly for its price.
Comfort 16 Mo for mobility?
The main advantage of a smartphone is to be connected everywhere and therefore to be mobile.Mobility for surfing the internet, even on holiday.
That Comfort 16 Mo looks really small.A size of 1.8 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.Even less good for watching a movie.It is in these cases that you will regret a bigger screen.
If having several lines in the same device is essential for you, go ahead.You can only have one active plan with this phone.This will force those who travel to think about changing their SIM.
No protection on the screen of this Comfort 16 Mo.No protection against scratches or shocks that can occur during the lifetime of all smartphones.A possible solution at a lower cost is the addition of a transparent tempered glass film, without altering the screen’s tactile reactivity.
Unfortunately, on the battery side it’s not so good.The 1000 mAh will barely be enough to last a day between calls, texts or games.As a precaution, you may have an external battery available nearby.
And since Emporia 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.
Analysis of multimedia functions.
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, the first smartphone that comes along is not necessarily going to fit.
This is not a model designed for multimedia.It is one of the worst in this area.It’s hard to watch a video.A resolution which is moreover in 64 x 128.It is rather advisable to listen to music.
Emporia sought to improve the audio experience.You have an input for the 3.5mm plug of your headphones.
To transfer the sound from the phone, you will have the option via bluetooth.The result is very pleasant to the ear.
And, on the nice but missing functionality side, we have the stereo speakers; the mono sound is shallower.
Is it suitable for games?
Games are performance consuming.Batteries are put to the test every day due to the use of mobile internet and applications.To play and have a smooth picture, you need to have the CPU and GPU at its best.In other words, the power of the technical components is essential to enjoy the game phases.
Moreover, for some passionate users, it will be light, especially since there is no extra space to add more.
If you play a lot for several hours you will find that the battery is low.Moreover, this model is one of the least efficient at the moment.Its power of 1000 mAH will not allow you to enjoy it all day long.
As with games, this smartphone is not intended to have many applications.unfortunately, it is at a very low reading comfort level.That’s gonna make it harder to read.The images are of lower quality, they can sometimes pixelize, and give a final rendering that is painful for the eyes.
And to finish on the application part, we note that the payment function via telephone (the NFC), is not available here.
Concerning audio or video use?
Having become an essential use of smartphones, the photo function has made great strides since the first generations.They have millions of pixels that capture details perfectly.However, this is not the only criterion to be taken into account.Editing and sharing options should also be analyzed.Emporia has long been designing smartphones with top quality photo sensors.
Unfortunately for image lovers, it does not have HDR.
What about the Comfort 16 Mo?
Our analysis showed that this Comfort 16 Mo wasn’t made for all purposes.It’s a model that’s mostly intended for troubleshooting.In short, it is mainly the price that will guide your choice.
