The 8S 2020 64 GB, the right choice for surfing the internet?
Your smartphone must be able to accompany you at all times.You will use it to make phone calls, but also to surf and search for information on the internet.
That 8S 2020 64 GB looks really small.In fact, it’s one of the smallest (5.71 inches) compared to other smartphones.
That means it’s not practical for internet browsing.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.Convenient if you have cut off portability (abroad) and want to stay in touch with your loved ones. This phone is equipped with a GPS chip.No more need for a map to get around a city or a country.Unless you’re in the middle of the desert.
Several Sims can be activated on this smartphone.This means that it is possible to have several active subscriptions in the device.This model allows you to manage several 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.
No protection on the screen of this 8S 2020 64 GB.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.
Autonomy is one of the worst features on this model.The 3020 mAh will barely be enough to last a day between calls, texts or games.This requires organization and always having a back-up charger available.
On the question of loading, Honor has done in the economy, that is to say without the fast charge.Convenient to use, it would have made it possible to recharge quickly.
Interesting for the videos?
More and more of us watch our phones at the expense of our TVs every day.It’s become a handy tool.You can also simply 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.He’s at the bottom of our ranking.Its screen is not big enough to enjoy a video, let alone a movie.The resolution is low: 720 x 1520.He’ll be more comfortable listening to music.
The on-board technology at the display level is the LCD IPS.The visual result is very good no matter from what angle you look at the screen.
For the audio part, Honor wanted to do well.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.
And, on the nice but missing functionality side, we have the stereo speakers; the mono sound is shallower.
Honor’s smartphone: a good choice for making video calls?
Smartphone games now require power.The same applies to the ever-increasing number of applications that reduce battery capacity.To play and have a smooth picture, you need to have the CPU and GPU at its best.In short, technology and the latest generation of components provide better playability.
Our tests put this 8S 2020 64 GB at the bottom of the list in terms of power.Its Mediatek MT6761 Helio A22 (12 nm) processor is not very powerful, and the GPU is not at the expected level.Which makes it look just passable.
The memory available on this model is average compared to competitors.The standard capacity is 64 GB.Knowing that some users need more space, Honor has provided a free space for an extension.
In case you play a lot, you’re going to strain the drums.The endurance of this model is one of the weakest.With a power of 3020 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: 295* pixels per inch.The images are of lower quality, they can sometimes pixelize, and give a final rendering that is painful for the eyes.
Finally, and regrettably, this model does not allow for contactless payments.
What about the videos?
Having become an essential use of smartphones, the photo function has made great strides since the first generations.For a long time, manufacturers have been communicating about the millions of pixels their devices were equipped with.The ability to stabilize at the time of shooting or the Burst mode are also important points.Editing and sharing options should also be analyzed.Honor has long been designing smartphones with top quality photo sensors.
The company has done the bare minimum in this case.In fact, there is only one camera on this phone.
If you are very attached to the quality of the photos, you may be disappointed by this 8S 2020 64 GB.With a definition of only 13 Mp, you will have lower quality images.You will limit selfies with this model, because of the poor quality of the rendering.The editing function is out of date.The sensor of this 8S 2020 64 GB is of very average quality and will dissuade you from using this smartphone for this kind of exercise.
This smartphone has 64 GB, which is in the middle of the storage range on competing models.So much space to store videos, photos and applications.The amount of storage will be sufficient to meet your classic needs.
The 8S 2020 64 GB, a good choice for the right use
Following our tests, we see that this 8S 2020 64 GB is not good for all cases.This model is very far from the top of the range, and may eventually meet the need for a first phone for a child.In the end, it’s a second choice in addition to your main smartphone.
