Reviews for the Crosscall Core-Z5

Crosscall Core-Z5 Camera test
Source: DxOMark English
The Crosscall Core-Z5 smartphone from the French maker of durable phones is primarily intended for users who need devices that are resistant to shocks and drops and that can perform in extreme conditions.The Core-Z5 is also the brand’s first 5G phone, and it finds itself in our premium price segment ($600 to $799). When it comes to image quality from the single rear camera, however, the Core-Z5 still has far to go before it can compete with other phones in this segment. The camera, in general, is capable of capturing basic correct images in standard outdoor conditions, where the device is most likely to be used. In our testing, the Core-X5’s photos and videos turned out better than those taken with the Action-X5, a Crosscall model we evaluated previously, but the Core-Z5’s image quality was severely limited because of the lack of an ultra-wide camera module, which affected the device’s zoom and overall score. The lack of a tele module on the Core-Z5, a feature that is commonly found on devices in this price range, also hindered the device’s camera performance.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
