How will you use your Smartphone?New technology or basic model – what’s the difference?Already at the level of the operating system of this 1.3 16 GB: here, it is an Android with all the Nokia ecosystem that goes with it.
Now let’s see the results of our situational testing.
Unfortunately, our analysis showed that this product was below what you would expect from a smartphone.This model is very far from the top of the range, and may eventually meet the need for a first phone for a child.Only its well-placed price is interesting; it can be a temporary choice.

Is the 1.3 16 GB compatible for nomadic use?
Your smartphone must be able to accompany you at all times.Beyond its telephone function, we expect it to be as good for surfing the internet and usable when travelling.
The 1.3 16 GB is almost a model.A size of 5.71 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.It’s a model made for telephoning, mainly.
The device is equipped with Wifi.This means that the connection will be easier during your internet browsing.There’s GPS on this phone.You’ll appreciate not having to ask for directions anymore.Unless you’re at the bottom of a cave, you’ll be able to know where you are at any given moment.
It is sometimes convenient to have several phones in one. And this model can handle multiple Sims.In other words, the ability to use multiple phone lines in this unit.This will even be possible with competing operators.An interesting option abroad.
It is important to note that this model does not include reinforced glass.No protection against scratches or shocks that can occur during the lifetime of all smartphones.If you decide on this model, remember to use a transparent tempered glass film, adapted to the shape of the screen.
Because of its battery, the range of this model is one of the worst.There is only 3000 mAh, which is low for normal use.As a precaution, you may have an external battery available nearby.
On the question of loading, Nokia 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?
The use of the telephone now exceeds that of television.Perfectly designed for our daily needs.It even replaces the radio, or to 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.But not all phones are suitable for this purpose.
Unsurprisingly, this model is not really made for multimedia.He’s at the bottom of our ranking.Its screen is not big enough to enjoy a video, let alone a movie.For information, the resolution is 720 x 1520.He’ll be more comfortable listening to music.
This model has an IPS LCD screen.The visual result is very good no matter from what angle you look at the screen.
On the audio side, Nokia wanted to do it right.A 3.5mm input to connect your headphones or speakers.
With its OS version installed, the phone supports wireless Hi-Fi audio via Bluetooth.The transmission is fluid and the sound is clear.
On the sound side, we find that there are no stereo speakers.
The right model to play with?
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.To play and have a smooth picture, you need to have the CPU and GPU at its best.Simply put, the higher these features are, the better your gaming experience will be.
Our tests put this 1.3 16 GB at the bottom of the list in terms of power.The Qualcomm QM215 (28 nm) processor is an older generation.The colors are medium and the images are not fluid.
In terms of storage memory, it’s in the worst.This model has 16 GB, which is low.But some of you will need more; that’s why Nokia has left a free slot for a memory card.
In case you play a lot, you’re going to strain the drums.Moreover, this model is one of the least efficient at the moment.With a power of 3000 mAH, it will need to be recharged during the day.
We would have appreciated a higher level for displaying applications.A below-average configuration with a reduced screen size of 5.71 inches.It won’t be easy to read the downloaded documents.You’ll have to force it to read the documents clearly.
Finally, and regrettably, this model does not allow for contactless payments.
For audio or video use?
People have been using smartphones for some time now… to take pictures.The millions of pixels of the sensors make it possible to make high quality photos.However, this is not the only criterion to be taken into account.Being able to retouch the obtained photos is appreciated.Nokia has long been designing smartphones with top quality photo sensors.
Little progress has been made by Nokia.This model thus has only one objective.
The screen resolution of this 1.3 16 GB is among the lowest on the market.An image resolution of 8 Mp which will give a mediocre result.As far as selfies are concerned, this model is devoid of the technology that embellishes the photos .The editing function is out of date.The sensor of this 1.3 16 GB 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.That means you’ll have to make choices between videos, photos and applications.And then we advise you to provide external backup solutions.
In short, the 1.3 16 GB, the right choice?
The design of this 1.3 16 GB corresponds to an entry-level product.With lesser performance, it does not reach the level of the best.In short, it is mainly the price that will guide your choice.
