Only the size of a credit card size and weighs 62.5g. People who come into contact with electronic devices early should be no strangers to the Palm brand. Palm has played a very important role in the transition of personal computing devices from desktop to mobile. Unfortunately, later, for a variety of reasons, Palm did not successfully catch the smartphone popularity of the fast train, gradually disappeared from the ordinary consumer’s vision.
After years of silence, Palm last year launched its first rebranded product, Palm (with the same name as the brand, withnosives), and more recently a chinese version. This week’s Geek Choice sits on a chance to get it, and here’s a quick look at this small phone
Palm’s biggest feature is its small size, which is a size of a credit card and weighs 62.5g. Geek Choice has also experienced some small phones, but Palm should be the smallest we’ve ever used, especially in today’s big-screen phones, and it does feel like a “light as nothing”.
Although very lightweight, but Palm does not feel cheap, it is very refined, front and back are gorilla glass, aluminum alloy frame has a certain degree of arc, such a “sandwich” design like a small iPhone?
In terms of configuration, the Palm screen size is 3.3 inches, because the PPI is 445 for a small screen reason, and it looks fine. Palm features a Qualcomm 435 chip, 3-32GB of storage, and no volume keys and headphone jack on the body.
Despite the dramatic reduction in size, Palm retains the front and rear cameras, which feature a combination of front-facing 8 million plus rear 12-megapixel cameras. Palm doesn’t have a fingerprint recognition module, but the front-facing camera can be used to unlock by faces.
On the system side, Palm is equipped with Android 8.1, the icon of the system app has been specially designed (third-party apps are unified as rectangles), the overall use is no different from other Android devices, we also tried to install weChat, Weibo and sound and other popular apps, no problem, no problem, Of course, the small-screen experience will be different.
Palm has a battery capacity of 800mAh and an interface with Type-C, which officially says can take more than three days of standby time. It’s worth noting that it also supports IP68 waterproofing and can be used in water sports scenes.
Palm is a mini phone, but it can also be thought of as a phone-enabled wearable (e-launched with only the eSIM card version). The official vision is that Palm can help us stay online while minimizing interruptions, and its system also has a “life mode” built into its system to manage notification reduction.
In addition to mobile phones, the authorities have introduced accessories that make them easier to carry. Palm is priced at 1999RMB
