Alcatel 1X 2019

The good

  • Lightweight design
  • Dual-lens rear camera
  • Cheap!

The bad

  • Slow camera response
  • Battery life is average, even for a budget phone
  • Already running an older Android OS


Alcatel as a brand is heavily identified with affordable budget phones. The Alcatel 1x 2019 is exactly that. It's not an expensive phone, and for your very little money, you get a very basic experience, regardless of whether you're talking software performance, camera quality or battery life.

Design

  • 16:9 LCD with no notch
  • Nice and light in the hand
  • Feels very cheap

Camera

  • Dual lens, but it's slow to capture
  • Portrait mode available for selfies – except it isn't

Performance

  • Slow MediaTek processor
  • Why is Alcatel selling an Android 8 phone in 2019?

Battery life

  • 3,000mAh battery delivers fair, but not great endurance
  • Slow micro-USB charging

Verdict

  • Not an exciting phone, but entirely fairly priced

  • The Alcatel 1x 2019 sells outright for $199 through Amazon and Officeworks.

    If what you're after is a phone with more battery life, and your budget can jump up a little, consider the Motorola Moto G7 Power.

    If you're after a phone that's going to be more up-to-date, the Nokia 3.2 retails for just a touch more than the Alcatel 1x 2019, but you get a much larger display and better battery life for your money.
