Alongside the Alcatel 1x (2019) released at the Las Vegas event (CES 2019), TCL Communications also unveiled the Alcatel 1c (2019). Alcatel 1c (2019) has more focus on the low-end market compared to its older sibling.

Like most smartphones designed as entry-level status, this phone possesses the Android Oreo Go Edition. Other areas are also optimised for decent performance for smartphone users who don’t demand too much.

Alcatel 1c (2019) Quick Review

Well, the materials used in designing the Alcatel 1x (2019) and this smartphone are very similar; both being polycarbonate and glass with fingerprint resistance. Fingerprint resistance in the sense that your fingerprints won’t be left behind everytime you hold the phone. That’s one hell of an advantage to the phone’s beauty. This is because the phone can retain its lovely appearance after lengthy usage over time.

Ironically, the phone lacks a fingerprint scanner to provide biometric security. That way, users can rely on the conventional means of locking their smartphones such as PINs, passwords and patterns. Up front, substantial amounts of bezels are present on the sides of the smartphone.

Even at that, 18:9 aspect ratio still makes it out on the 5-inch screen. Unsurprisingly, 480 x 960 pixels serves as the determinant of the display’s qualities. One more vital feature found at the phone’s fore is the 2MP camera. At the rear, a 5MP camera handles the photography duties. A LED flash is supported to help out in dark areas.

Running on Android Oreo Go edition, most of the apps on the smartphone are Go applications. Thus, the 1GB RAM is optimised for decent running of apps without lagging. Files can be stored on the phone’s internal 8GB storage. As expected, it can be expanded to 32GB by employing an external memory.

And yes, a modest 2,000mAh battery will get you through most part of the day on an economical usage. There’s no LTE support on the device, so you have just GSM and HSPA for your voice and data activities.
