1V (2020) 32 GB for mobility?
The intended use of your future phone is of utmost importance. If for you, a phone is just for making calls, you probably won’t need a smartphone.
A model that fits in your pocket: the 1V (2020) 32 GB.Indeed, with its 6.22 inches, it is one of the smallest models currently available on the market.
Obviously with this size, it is not easy to surf the net.Forget the videos, too.All in all, perfect for a phone call.
In addition, it natively offers Wifi technology.This allows you to easily have a connection with a comfortable speed. This phone is equipped with a GPS chip.You’ll appreciate not having to ask for directions anymore.Effective functionality almost everywhere.
Several Sims can be activated on this smartphone.This means that you can manage several packages at the same time.And therefore several operators on this model.An interesting option abroad.
Detail that is missing on this 1V (2020) 32 GB is the absence of reinforced glass.No protection against scratches or shocks that can occur during the lifetime of all smartphones.It is a good idea to purchase an adaptable screen protector as a complement.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.
On the question of loading, Alcatel has done in the economy, that is to say without the fast charge.Yet it has become almost indispensable, due to the speed at which batteries are now draining.
The right model for multimedia use?
For many, phones are beginning to replace TV sets.Perfectly designed for our daily needs.You can also listen to continuous music anywhere.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.
With a low reading comfort, the 1V (2020) 32 GB is not designed for multimedia.It is one of the worst in this area.It’s hard to watch a video.The resolution is low: 720 x 1520.He’ll be more comfortable listening to music.
This includes an IPS LCD screen.The light of the backlight varies according to the orientation of the pixels allowing a wider viewing angle.
On the audio side, Alcatel wanted to do it right.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 sound result is of a good level.
And, on the nice but missing functionality side, we have the stereo speakers; the mono sound is shallower.
The Alcatel phone, for video games?
Games are performance consuming.Batteries are put to the test every day due to the use of mobile internet and applications.On 3D games, the right processor and quality graphics chip ensure smooth rendering.In short, the more advanced the components are, the better the gameplay will be.
As far as RAM is concerned, this model is lightweight to say the least.This phone only defaults to 32 GB; that’s probably fair.And because Alcatel predicted that some of you would be demanding gamers, you have the ability to expand the available memory.
Apart from playing for several hours, the battery is quite well dimensioned.This model is identical to what you will find in the competition.With a power of 4000 mAH, it will be enough to charge the day before to be able to hold the day.
As with games, this smartphone is not intended to have many applications.unfortunately, it is at a very low reading comfort level.This is an entry-level model: 270* pixels per inch.The precision of the image, the colours; so many elements that will limit your desire to read on this phone.
And to finish on the application part, we note that the payment function via telephone (the NFC), is not available here.
Analysis of Audio and Video functions
Over time, smartphones have become almost as good as cameras.The millions of pixels of the sensors make it possible to make high quality photos.The ability to stabilize at the time of shooting or the Burst mode are also important points.The possible retouching via application is also interesting.Alcatel has a long history of designing quality products.
Little progress has been made by Alcatel.This model thus has only one objective.
The 13 Mp resolution of this model is interesting.The results of your holiday movies will be of very good quality.We do not recommend this device to anyone who regularly selfies with their smartphone.The editing function is out of date.You will be able to take pictures perfectly, but don’t expect high quality.
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 1V (2020) 32 GB?
This 1V (2020) 32 GB meets the majority of use cases.This model is average, and will meet most of your needs.And with a contained price tag, it’s finally good.
