The 1SE (2020) 32 GB adapted for internet use and travel ?
Your smartphone must be able to accompany you at all times. If for you, a phone is just for making calls, you probably won’t need a smartphone.
1SE (2020) 32 GB’s really small.In fact, it’s one of the smallest (6.22 inches) compared to other smartphones.
That means it’s not practical for internet browsing.Even less good for watching a movie.The primary use of this phone would be to make calls…
Also note that wifi will be available to accompany you.This means that the connection will be easier during your internet browsing.There’s GPS on this phone.No more need for a map to get around a city or a country.Unless you’re in the middle of the desert.
Several Sims can be activated on this smartphone.This means that it is possible to have several active subscriptions in the device.That is, several operators at the same time.It can be interesting when you travel abroad.
Detail that is missing on this 1SE (2020) 32 GB is the absence of reinforced glass.It’s hard to predict that a device will never fall down.
A possible solution at a lower cost is the addition of a transparent tempered glass film, without altering the screen’s tactile reactivity.
In terms of autonomy, this phone is in the average with a 4000 mAH battery, comparable to competing models.It will be possible to spend a full day between loads.
In conclusion on battery charging, Alcatel has not changed anything compared to previous models, which means no fast charge.Yet it has become almost indispensable, due to the speed at which batteries are now draining.
The right choice for watching movies?
For many, phones are beginning to replace TV sets.It’s become a handy tool.It even replaces the radio, or to listen to music.Thanks to the ever-increasing access to networks, and with easy-to-use applications, it has become very simple to watch a streaming movie (Netflix, YouTube or Disney) on a phone screen.But not all phones are suitable for this purpose.
Unsurprisingly, this model is not really made for multimedia.He’s one of the worst in the business.Its screen is not big enough to enjoy a video, let alone a movie.For information, the resolution is 720 x 1520.It is rather advisable to listen to music.
The on-board technology at the display level is the LCD IPS.That is to say that it offers very good colours and very wide viewing angles.
For the audio part, Alcatel wanted to do well.A 3.5mm input to connect your headphones or speakers.
Using its Bluetooth functionality, you can pair your phone with all the devices in your home (speakers, TV…).The transmission is fluid and the sound is clear.
And, on the nice but missing functionality side, we have the stereo speakers; the mono sound is shallower.
The Alcatel smartphone for online or local games
Games are performance consuming.Games, but also applications require batteries.To play and have a smooth picture, you need to have the CPU and GPU at its best.In short, technology and the latest generation of components provide better playability.
A smartphone with RAM, but the bare minimum.It’s 32 GB that have been installed, and that’s not much.But some of you will need more; that’s why Alcatel has left a free slot for a memory card.
Normal use of this smartphone is adapted to its level of autonomy.An autonomy which is in the middle range.With 4000 mAH, its power allows you to stay connected all day long.
We would have appreciated a higher level for displaying applications.The components do not allow for a quality display.That’s gonna make it harder to read.The images are of lower quality, they can sometimes pixelize, and give a final rendering that is painful for the eyes.
Finally, it should be noted that NFC (contactless payment) is not possible with this smartphone.
The tool to make photos, movies?
Having become an essential use of smartphones, the photo function has made great strides since the first generations.For a long time, manufacturers have been communicating about the millions of pixels their devices were equipped with.The ability to stabilize at the time of shooting or the Burst mode are also important points.Being able to retouch the obtained photos is appreciated.Alcatel is renowned for the quality of its sensors and the design of its smartphones.
As usual, Alcatel did it right, with the sensor part integrated on the Android system.And for an even better result, this phone contains 3 lenses.
With its photo resolution of 13 Mp, this 1SE (2020) 32 GB is an interesting choice compared to other equivalent models.You can be sure to make good quality photos and videos.We do not recommend this device to anyone who regularly selfies with their smartphone.The editing function is out of date.This 1SE (2020) 32 GB allows you to take pictures, but will not restore the brightness or colors.
This phone offers very little space: 32 GB; this is the smallest phone available.Limited space to store your holiday photos and movies.With this amount available, you will need to quickly sort through what you want to keep and delete the rest.
What about the 1SE (2020) 32 GB?
This 1SE (2020) 32 GB corresponds to the majority of use cases.It’s a very good quality model.And with a contained price tag, it’s finally good.
