After using more than three years: The most valuable things which they're surprised me during these years: battery life, Display screen and 6 megabytes of RAM. I'm usually playing more than 2 hours games a day with my device and have any problem with. The camera is really superb in days but at nights decrease in quality. The speaker is not Dual [stereo]. This device is light weight in fact because of plastic Case. This material could be a negative point. The adapter is fast charging technology which means only take 1 hour to get full from 0 to 100.

3 AÑOS CON EL MOVIL AVERIADO

4 / 10

Siempre he sido de samsung, eso sí gama alta tipo note pero por cor instancias tuve que comprar este en 2019. En principio es un gama media suficiente para un usuarioedko no muy exigente, el problema viene cuando en apenas 1 mes el teléfono dejó de funcionar todo lo relativo al multimedia, ni altavoces ni micrófono, ni graba vídeos, ni reproduce en condiciones vídeos de ningún sitio etc. Con lo cual llevo más de 2 años camino de 3 con un móvil con el que no puedo ni realizar llamadas ni que me las hagan porque no oigo ni me oyen, ni puedo ver videos si no lo enlazo con un altavoz Bluetooth, no puedo poner unos auriculares, ni puedo escuchar audios ni enviarlos, etc. En fin, he aprendido a vivir con ello pero es una putada gorda. El resto es un ien teelefon, buena, pantalla, cámara aceptable, batería aceptable ya después de más de 2 años se nota su desgaste etc, pero vamos el móvil si no se le estropea lo que tengo estropeado, es un bien móvil. Y diréis ¿porque no lo llevaste a arreglar en garantía? Pues porque me lo ponían a fábrica me hacían un reset y no podía, permitirme el lujo de perder más de 120 gb de información, solo por eso.

Pros

  • Es Samsung, eso siempre es una ventaja
  • Tamaño ideal
  • Pantalla muy buena

Cons

  • Batería se queda corta según pasan actualizaciones
  • Carga no demasiado rápida
  • Ausencia de infrarrojos
  • No es posible conectar por hml

Cameras

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the front camera. A higher megapixel count means that the front camera is capable of capturing more details, an essential factor for taking high-resolution selfies.
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.
5.wide aperture (main camera)

f/1.7 & f/2.2 & f/2.2

With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
