A thorough review of the characteristics and specifications of the TONE m14. We provide a detailed evaluation of the phone in terms of usability – including ease of holding, screen visibility, performance, image quality, and multitasking capabilities – as well as functionality, looking at the battery and camera.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the TONE m14

TONE m14's size

The TONE m14 is 3.1 inches (78 mm) wide, 5.9 inches (151 mm) tall, and 0.4 inches (9.5 mm) thick. The size makes it a bit difficult to use with one hand. In the case of the TONE m14, 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 TONE m14, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

TONE m14's screen

The TONE m14 has a 5.5 inch screen. The smartphone has a large, impressive screen, which allows you to enjoy photos and videos to the fullest. It is also very good for writing business documents and doing other work.

The screen quality of the TONE m14 is such that videos and images can be blurry at times. There's a noticeable lack of image quality in general.

The CPU performance of TONE m14

The processing power of the TONE m14 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 TONE m14 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 TONE m14'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.

TONE m14's storage capacity

The TONE m14 has 4GB 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 TONE m14 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.

The camera function of TONE m14

The main camera of the TONE m14 has a capacity of 8 MP pixels, and is adequate for normal use. But some users may feel dissatisfied with the picture quality.

The TONE m14 comes equipped with a 2 MP pixel front-facing camera, which is very low resolution. If you aren't particular about your videos or photos, it might be fine, but otherwise, we recommend a smartphone at least one tier higher.

The battery performance of TONE m14

The TONE m14's battery capacity is 2500 mAh, a standard level for these types of phones. Compared to other smartphones, the TONE m14 has a standard battery life. It should not be a problem for normal use. However, if you spend a lot of time online or playing games, you may find the battery life a bit dissatisfying.

Overall assessment of TONE m14

The TONE m14's performance level is that of a budget smartphone. It's a bit too weak to use as a main smartphone, so if possible you should consider something slightly more powerful. However, it should be sufficient for people that only want to use the most basic functions, like making calls and browsing the internet, and for people that don't really use smartphones much.

The merits and demerits of TONE m14

The merits of TONE m14

  • With the large display you can comfortably use it to watch videos and play games.

The demerits of TONE m14

  • The image quality on the screen is not good.
  • The CPU performance is not very good, and will become operationally sluggish when using apps.
  • The rear-facing camera is very low resolution, so you should not think of using this smartphone as your main camera.
