In conclusion on battery charging, Alcatel has not changed anything compared to previous models, which means no fast charge.Too bad, it’s a very interesting feature today.
The right choice for watching movies?
Smartphones have become the new televisions.A handy device for watching videos.You can also simply 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.However, the first smartphone that comes along is not necessarily going to fit.
We would have liked the 3X (2020) 64 GB to have been more powerful on the multimedia side.He’s at the bottom of our ranking.An 6.52 -inch screen with overly vivid colors.A resolution which is moreover in 720 x 1600.However, you can use it to listen to your music playlist.
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.
Alcatel has also designed this product for audio use.The 3.5mm jack input allows the connection of headphones and/or a microphone.
To transfer the sound from the phone, you will have the option via bluetooth.The result is very pleasant to the ear.
On the sound side, we find that there are no stereo speakers.
The right model to play with?
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, the more advanced the components are, the better the gameplay will be.
The memory available on this model is average compared to competitors.It is 64 GB that are provided.And because Alcatel predicted that some of you would be demanding gamers, you have the ability to expand the available memory.
Please note that during intensive play, the battery is put to the test.Here you have the best in the market.Its power is 5000 mAh; that’s enough to play for hours.Add to that a nice design, this phone has all the qualities.
We would have appreciated a higher level for displaying applications.Reading comfort where the display is not up to scratch.This is an entry-level model: 269* pixels per inch.The images are of lower quality, they can sometimes pixelize, and give a final rendering that is painful for the eyes.
And to finish on the application part, we note that the payment function via telephone (the NFC), is not available here.
Concerning audio or video use?
Having become an essential use of smartphones, the photo function has made great strides since the first generations.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 has a long history of designing quality products.
Unsurprisingly, Alcatel installed an efficient photo sensor and integrated it perfectly into Android.Thus, this model has 4 objectives.
