Our Observations

When pressing the on/off button of the device, the manufacturer’s logo appears almost instantly. We started pressing the “Menu” button when the logo appeared and discovered that the device is responsive as soon as we get the image. That means that the start-up and ready-to-use times are the same – approximately 4.61 seconds, which is quite fast.

The recording functions however is not available at that exact time. To record videos, you must wait a few additional seconds, until the icon appears in the top left corner. We decided to stop the start-up timer as soon as the menu started working, as all other functions are available then. Also, the recording usually isn’t the first thing you need when turning on the device.

For the Pulsar Helion 2 XQ38F, we used the easy-to-install Li-Ion Battery Pack APS 5 that is included in the box. The user has the option of having multiple batteries that can be switched while on the field in case the battery runs out.

The device is easy to handle, and the buttons are easy to press even if you are wearing gloves.

Pulsar Helion 2 XQ38F also has a Standby option, which is a remarkably useful battery-saving feature. With the short press of the on/off button, the screen turns off and the device enters the Standby mode. To use the device again, you simply press the on/off button, and the display appears immediately. The device is also instantly responsive to the users’ actions.

When turning the device off, you just simply hold the on/off button. The countdown (for how long you must hold the button to turn the device off) appears on the screen.
