The C2 Tava 16 GB, enough for internet use?
Your smartphone must be able to accompany you at all times.Mobility for surfing the internet, even on holiday.
The C2 Tava 16 GB is almost a model.A size of 5.45 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.Don’t imagine watching a movie in good conditions either.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 has GPS.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.
No location, no multiple operator management.This model does not offer dual SIM storage.With a national package, you will be forced abroad to take out your card and put another local one in its place.
Detail that is missing on this C2 Tava 16 GB is the absence of reinforced glass.In other words, the scratches or the shocks that happen to us all, will inevitably appear.A possible solution at a lower cost is the addition of a transparent tempered glass film, without altering the screen’s tactile reactivity.
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.You’ll think about having an external battery backup nearby.
Nokia did not choose to install the fast charge feature on this model.Too bad, it’s a very interesting feature today.
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.You can also listen to continuous music anywhere.They are quite powerful and quite connected by streaming video.Careful, that doesn’t mean any smartphone will do.
We would have liked the C2 Tava 16 GB to have been more powerful on the multimedia side.It is one of the worst in this area.The 5.45-inch screen is poorly suited for exercise.And its screen resolution is low.It is rather advisable to listen to music.
This model has an IPS LCD screen.The result is less light scattering, resulting in a wider viewing angle and deeper tones.
Nokia has also designed this product for audio use.A 3.5mm input to connect your headphones or speakers.
With its OS version installed, the phone supports wireless Hi-Fi audio via Bluetooth.A technology that ensures quality sound.
On the sound side, we find that there are no stereo speakers.
The Nokia smartphone for online or local games
Impossible to play properly without a high-performance device.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, technology and the latest generation of components provide better playability.
Our tests put this C2 Tava 16 GB at the bottom of the list in terms of power.The Mediatek MT6761 Helio A22 (16 nm) processor is an older generation.The colors are medium and the images are not fluid.
As far as RAM is concerned, this model is lightweight to say the least.This phone only defaults to 16 GB; that’s probably fair.Knowing that some users need more space, Nokia has provided a free space for an extension.
In case you play a lot, you’re going to strain the drums.The result is at the bottom of our ranking.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 5.45 inches.Its entry-level design with a smaller-than-average screen gives a disappointing result.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?
Over time, smartphones have become almost as good as cameras.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.Being able to share photos taken with one click is also important.Nokia has long been designing smartphones with top quality photo sensors.
On the other hand it’s a little light for the camera part.In fact, there is only one camera on this phone.
The resolution of this model is not very efficient.A photo resolution of 8 Mp which gives a low quality result.We do not recommend this device to anyone who regularly selfies with their smartphone.Reprocessing photos is not intuitive.This C2 Tava 16 GB is good for telephoning, but not for retouching images.
This phone offers very little space: 16 GB; this is the smallest phone available.Forget about your music and movies, in addition to your many applications.With this amount available, you will need to quickly sort through what you want to keep and delete the rest.
Finally, the C2 Tava 16 GB…
Following our tests, we see that this C2 Tava 16 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.
