GSMArena feature lab: Enter new goodies - read the full textWe finally had a chance to put some time into developing a handful of new features for our site, so with the hot summer behind us, we rolled up our sleeves to shape several novelties that we’ve been reflecting on lately. We bet you’ll be...

Please, test some Alcatel phone, too! ( OT-806 won't be bad. )

Can you comment on the dynamic range, please?
I wonder where the limitation of the dynamic range comes from: either small maximum output voltage or high floor noise. Especially the latter is distracting with sensitive headphones (e.g. in-ear 16Ohms like the Sennheiser series) in a quiet environment listening to classical music.
It would much help to publish the floor noise level when the headset is connected and the music is playing a "zero content" file. It is not sufficient to measure in "paused" mode as the units sometimes are muting the audio output in that state.

A hint regarding the different output reading with and without headphones attached: The bigger the difference is (e.g. the hump in the base area) the higher value a serial resistor may have in the line of audio output. The hump should come from the impedance that the headphone resembles as this is not equal for all frequencies. If the Audio output has zero inner resistance then the curves are identical - something that an audiophile addict may expect. Having such devices would however demand extreme quality from the last stage of audio output, especially regarding the floor noise (see above).

Anyway you are resembling the most elaborate and dedicated audio testing already and you are my one stop source for getting reliable information in that regard.

How do you arrive at your narrative evaluation. Do you wieght one reading over another, if so in what proportion or do you do a simple average, again which avergaing do you perform?

GSMarena is totally helping me in choosing the right phone so i wont make any mistake. by the way, I heard that Satio's battery is quite bad. it is true? and what should the user of that particular phone do? actually Im planning to get Satio. right now im using 5800xpress music.
if there any replacement batteries that can long last?

This phone (and many others) has Bluetooth and speakerphone but NO voice activated dialling via a blue tooth headset, Why? It's illegal to hold a phone when driving, if you use more than 1 car it's not practical to have an in car hands free system so the headset is a must. The phone is so good in other ways, why has this essential feature been left out?

I did not have time to read all of the comments already posted, so this request might be a duplicate.

Can you also measure noise levels for normal speaker (not the speakerphone)? Because in a noisy bus, or on a sidewalk of a busy street that sound level is quite important, too.
