Alcatel 3L: analysis

It is a device that with its 4GB of RAM can guarantee satisfactory performance with soft use, that is to say for all those ordinary operations that do not involve excessive processor effort. So it will certainly not be a smartphone suitable for videogame applications or for opening spreadsheets for example. But for those looking for a phone primarily for streaming videos or browsing the web, it will likely be a must have considering the meager price it sells. To be highlighted then the presence of Android 11 with all its new features and the presence of the 3.5mm audio jack. Finally, the photographic sector, consisting of a module with a triple sensor, should guarantee (at least on paper) satisfactory photographs thanks to the main lens from 48MP. The front sensor for self-portraits, on the other hand, is from 8MP.

Alcatel 1S: analysis

The hardware of the cheaper model differs not only for the photo modules, but only for the memory RAM more contained, from 3GB, and memory ROM of suns 32GB. For all the rest we find practically the same characteristics of the more “expensive” model. Certainly the lower memory capacity could create some problems with the fluidity of the device, but if you are among those who use the smartphone almost exclusively for calls or messaging / web browsing, you may have more than a few reasons to opt for this proposal signed by Alcatel.

The presence here too of Android 11 combined with the large battery should ensure daily coverage of the phone’s operation. Unfortunately, it should be noted that both models lack the 5G modem to take advantage of the maximum speed of navigation and that the battery is recharged through an obsolete port microUSB. The photographic sector is sees a rear main sensor from 13MP and a front sensor for self-portraits of suns 5MP.
