The H280S 4 Go, enough for internet use?
Your smartphone must be able to accompany you at all times.If for you, a phone is just for making calls, you probably won’t need a smartphone.
A model that fits in your pocket: the H280S 4 Go.A size of 5 inches that would have been normal in the early days of smartphones, but not anymore.
Obviously with this size, it is not easy to surf the net.Forget the videos, too.The primary use of this phone would be to make calls…
Also note that wifi will be available to accompany you.This means that the connection will be easier during your internet browsing.This smartphone comes with GPS.No more need for a map to get around a city or a country.Unless you’re at the bottom of a cave, you’ll be able to know where you are at any given moment.
Several Sims can be activated on this smartphone.This means that you can manage several packages at the same time.And therefore several operators on this model.It can be interesting when you travel abroad.
Detail that is missing on this H280S 4 Go is the absence of reinforced glass.It’s hard to predict that a device will never fall down.
A possible solution at a lower cost is the addition of a transparent tempered glass film, without altering the screen’s tactile reactivity.
A negative point, however, is the battery capacity.With a power of 2000 mAh, you will be forced to recharge more often.As a precaution, you may have an external battery available nearby.
And since Energizer 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.
Interesting for the videos?
For many, phones are beginning to replace TV sets.A handy device for watching videos.It even replaces the radio, or to listen 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.It is one of the worst in this area.The 5-inch screen is poorly suited for exercise.The resolution is low: 480 x 854.However, you can use it to listen to your music playlist.
Energizer has also designed this product for audio use.You have an input for the 3.5mm plug of your headphones.
With its OS version installed, the phone supports wireless Hi-Fi audio via Bluetooth.A technology that ensures quality sound.
And, on the nice but missing functionality side, we have the stereo speakers; the mono sound is shallower.
The Energizer smartphone for online or local games
Smartphone games now require power.This implies that the batteries must be able to keep up.The processor and graphics chip must also be of high quality to make the image fluid.In short, the more advanced the components are, the better the gameplay will be.
Our tests have shown that this H280S 4 Go is one of the most powerful.On the processor side, even if it is not always the case, the Quad Core is today almost the minimum.This model has a Mediatek MT6580M (28 nm) processor.This chip offers a better performance in terms of visual and video fluidity.
As far as RAM is concerned, you’re at the minimum required on a smartphone.This phone only defaults to 4 GB; that’s probably fair.But some of you will need more; that’s why Energizer has left a free slot for a memory card.
In case you play a lot, you’re going to strain the drums.Unfortunately in the case of this model, it is one of the worst.With a power of 2000 mAH, it will need to be recharged during the day.
As with games, this smartphone is not intended to have many applications.A below-average configuration with a reduced screen size of 5 inches.It won’t be easy to read the downloaded documents.You’ll have to force it to read the documents clearly.
Finally, it should be noted that NFC (contactless payment) is not possible with this smartphone.
What about the videos?
Having become an essential use of smartphones, the photo function has made great strides since the first generations.The millions of pixels of the sensors make it possible to make high quality photos.But this characteristic is not everything.Editing and sharing options should also be analyzed.Energizer has long been designing smartphones with top quality photo sensors.
As usual, Energizer did it right, with the sensor part integrated on the Android system.And for an even better result, this phone contains 1 lenses.
If you are very attached to the quality of the photos, you may be disappointed by this H280S 4 Go.A definition in 5 Mp, which is necessarily less good than on top-of-the-range models.Unfortunately for image lovers, it does not have HDR.
As far as selfies are concerned, this model is devoid of the technology that embellishes the photos .Also, it is difficult to retouch images properly.The sensor of this H280S 4 Go is of very average quality and will dissuade you from using this smartphone for this kind of exercise.
This device contains only 4 GB of storage space; less than most.That means you’ll have to make choices between videos, photos and applications.To put it plainly, you will have to make room regularly or your memory will be saturated.
The H280S 4 Go – in a nutshell
This H280S 4 Go makes almost any use possible without difficulty.
This model is average, and will meet most of your needs.And with a contained price tag, it’s finally good.
