On the beach, in the street and anywhere, any excuse is good to take out your smartphone and blast photos of the group of friends, the plate of food or the cat that looks out from the balcony of a terrace.

Triple main camera

The Alcatel 1S 2020 puts all the meat of the grill in its photographic section. The evolution of the Alcatel 1S includes up to three sensors for the main camera. The first of them is a 13 megapixel wide angle to be able to take larger photos, something that we will appreciate if we have to photograph a monument or a large group of people. Also noteworthy is its macro lens, which is used to take detailed photos . On a personal level, it is a mode that I really appreciate, and that I have enjoyed using the Huawei P30.

Finally, a 2-megapixel lens is also included to provide deep detail and to be able to take photos with blur (the popular bokeh). They could not miss other features such as HDR mode or Full HD video recording . Where you will notice more of the cutout typical of battle mobiles is in the front, since the camera for selfies stays at 5 megapixels. Of course, it uses a flash fitted with the screen itself to improve photos at night.

Wide screen and good battery

Another key to the Alcatel 1S 2020 is on its screen. You can tell that we like them bigger and bigger and this model reaches 6.22 inches . We would have recently considered it a “shoe phone” and now it has become almost the standard for size. The screen itself has IPS technology and an HD + resolution , enough to move through menus and apps, but perhaps somewhat short in the case of watching videos or series and movies on apps like Netflix.

As for the battery, on paper we have a model capable of withstanding the type without problems throughout the day. We are talking about a 4,000 milliamp battery , the same capacity as, for example, the Samsung Galaxy S20 that has just been presented. Taking into account that in this case we are talking about a model with less power, it is very likely that we can get through the day of use without having to look for a plug. The official data that is given from Alcatel is that it holds 20 hours of 4G conversation.

Price and reviews

The Alcatel 1S 2020 will arrive in stores in a few days for a price of 120 euros . We are facing an entry phone that has a good balance of features, especially in the section of the main camera (with its triple sensor) and in the 4,000 milliamp battery that promises many hours of use without worrying about charging. As for the points that seem weaker, perhaps in the section of the front camera it could have been pushed a little more taking into account the intensive use that many users give to the selfie camera. All in all, a very interesting proposal if you are looking for a mobile to match for little money.
