1SE (2020) 32 GB for mobility?
Your smartphone must be able to accompany you at all times. Mobility for surfing the internet, even on holiday.
A model that fits in your pocket: the 1SE (2020) 32 GB.In fact, it’s one of the smallest (6.22 inches) compared to other smartphones.
That means it’s not practical for internet browsing.Don’t imagine watching a movie in good conditions either.All in all, perfect for a phone call.
The device is equipped with Wifi.Convenient if you have cut off portability (abroad) and want to stay in touch with your loved ones.This smartphone has GPS.You’ll appreciate not having to ask for directions anymore.Unless you’re in the middle of the desert.
Some smartphones can hide more than one.This means that you can manage several packages at the same time.This model allows you to manage several operators.This will be convenient for those who travel regularly.
It is important to note that this model does not include reinforced glass.No protection against scratches or the shocks of everyday life.You will need to plan for the purchase of a protective film.
In terms of autonomy, this phone is in the average with a 4000 mAH battery, comparable to competing models.Enough to get through the day.
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.
Is this device good for listening to music and watching videos?
More and more of us watch our phones at the expense of our TVs every day.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.However, the first smartphone that comes along is not necessarily going to fit.
We would have liked the 1SE (2020) 32 GB to have been more powerful on the multimedia side.It is one of the worst in this area.An 6.22 -inch screen with overly vivid colors.And its screen resolution is low.At the limit, it will be suitable for 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.
For the audio part, Alcatel wanted to do well.A 3.5mm input to connect your headphones or speakers.
Bluetooth technology will allow you to listen to music with connected devices.The sound result is of a good level.
Finally, we deplore the absence of stereo speakers.
The right model to play with?
Impossible to play properly without a high-performance device.The same applies to the ever-increasing number of applications that reduce battery capacity.For smooth and responsive rendering on 3D video games, it is necessary to combine a good processor with a good graphics processor.In short, technology and the latest generation of components provide better playability.
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.Knowing that some users need more space, Alcatel has provided a free space for an extension.
Apart from playing for several hours, the battery is quite well dimensioned.This model is identical to what you will find in the competition.The power is 4000 mAH, well enough for the day.
As with games, this smartphone is not intended to have many applications.unfortunately, it is at a very low reading comfort level.It won’t be easy to read the downloaded documents.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.
Concerning audio or video use?
The quality of smartphones allows you to take pictures as well as many 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.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.This phone offers 3 lenses as standard.
This 1SE (2020) 32 GB has a photo resolution of 13 Mp, identical to its competitors.You will find the brightness and colours of your holiday images at your fingertips.You will limit selfies with this model, because of the poor quality of the rendering.Reprocessing photos is not intuitive.This 1SE (2020) 32 GB allows you to take pictures, but will not restore the brightness or colors.
This model is one of the least space-consuming with only 32 GB.That means you’ll have to make choices between videos, photos and applications.With this amount available, you will need to quickly sort through what you want to keep and delete the rest.
The 1SE (2020) 32 GB in conclusion
This 1SE (2020) 32 GB corresponds to the majority of use cases.Performing well, it almost reaches the level of the best.All in all, a good price/quality ratio.
