Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Philips V526

The CPU performance of Philips V526

The processing power of the Philips V526 is comparatively low at 1.3GHz×4(Quad core). You'll most likely notice its lack of power when running games or playing videos. However, you shouldn't have any problems making calls, browsing the internet or using apps like Twitter or Instagram.

The Philips V526 only has 1GB of RAM, which is fairly low. The RAM is regularly insufficient, so operation gets unstable and jerky even when using apps that are not resource intensive.

In rating the Philips V526's overall operational speed, it ranks at the low end of smartphones. It will lag and feel sluggish even during normal use. In most cases, users will feel the performance to be lacking.

Philips V526's storage capacity

The Philips V526 has 8GB of data storage. This is fine if you mainly use email or social media sites, but if you plan to take photos and videos or play games, you should buy an upgrade.

Since the Philips V526 is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

Philips V526's size

The Philips V526 is 2.9 inches (73.4 mm) wide, 5.7 inches (145 mm) tall, and 0.4 inches (10 mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the Philips V526, it weighs about 189 oz (189 g). It feels a little heavy when held with one hand. It may tire your hand out if you operate it for too long a time.

In giving an overall rating to the Philips V526, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

Philips V526's screen

The Philips V526 has a 5 inch screen. The iPhone X has a big screen, which very likely won't ever trouble you. Just be aware that it's not a very good size for writing long blocks of text.

The resolution of the Philips V526's screen is pretty much standard. It shouldn't be a problem for normal use, but it might prove to be a bit dissatisfying for those who wish to better enjoy their photos, videos, or games.

The camera function of Philips V526

The Philips V526 has a 13 MP main camera that lets you take photos and videos in a quite high resolution. You may be a little dissatisfied with it in some situations, for example when you want to capture scenery in very high resolution or print out beautiful photos, but this should not be an issue you run into very often.

The Philips V526 comes with a 5 MP pixel camera, which is a standard level. It's perfectly fine for selfies, but may be not as satisfying if you wish to take photos of large numbers of people, or make printouts.

The battery performance of Philips V526

The Philips V526 has a battery with a quite large capacity of 5000 mAh. Compared to other smartphones, the battery life of the Philips V526 is very good and will no doubt satisfy all your needs. You won't have to worry about the battery even when you use the phone to watch videos or play games for hours on end.

Overall assessment of Philips V526

The Philips V526 is a relatively high-performance smartphone. If you plan to use it as your main smartphone, you may find it slightly inconvenient, but within tolerable limits.
