Have you seen the mobiles with shiny covers that are being carried this year? Well, enjoy the back cover of the Alcatel 3 of 2019. And it is that this brand has gotten fully into the fashion of gradient cases . That is, in those bright finishes full of colors that, in addition, change the tone according to the reflections of the light that falls on their surfaces. And, personally, it seems like a success. It is the best way to make this Alcatel 3 of 2019 a colorful mobile with personality.
And I say with personality because, despite following an increasingly widespread and shared fashion, he does it in his own style. That is why we find the same gradient pattern from top to bottom, changing between various shades. On the one hand I have seen the black and blue model, which is elegant and youthful, but also another that varies its tones between blue and purple, this being more risky and beautiful (to taste the colors). All with a mirror finish. The material is plastic, yes, but it has nothing to envy to the glass finishes of high-end mobiles. Especially when it comes to mirror effect and striking finish.
Super wide screen
This Alcatel 3 of 2019 also adds to the fashion of the all screen. And it is that its front is used only by the screen. No buttons. There is a mini U-shaped notch at the top and a small frame at the bottom. Specifically, we can speak of an 88.4 percent screen ratio on the body of the mobile.
For this, the panel is lengthened to the top, it becomes panoramic. Thus it reaches the aspect ratio of 19.5: 9, which gives it the name of super full view. A total of 5.9 inches in diagonal that makes the screen large but comfortable to operate with one hand. And, in the end, it is a tall mobile, but not wide, so it is ergonomic. The panel technology is IPS, and reaches an HD + resolution of 1,520 x 720 pixels , enough to enjoy movies, series and videos with good brightness and definition.
Android 9 Pie
Another important point that you should know about this mobile has to do with the software part. And is that the Alcatel 3 of 2019 can be updated to Android 9 Pie . That is to say, it has all the news in terms of security, but also regarding the improvements of this Google operating system. In addition to ensuring compatibility with applications for the future.
All this, yes, moved by an 8-core Snapdragon 439 processor that is responsible for managing resources to move applications such as WhatsApp, Instagram, Facebook or Google Chrome without problems. Or even casual games like Candy Crush Friends Saga. It encourages us to use the majority of applications and games designed for mobile phones. In addition, we find two models for those who want an extra boost in performance. A basic model of 3 GB of RAM plus 32 GB of storage, and a more advanced one of 4 GB of RAM with 64 GB of storage, somewhat more agile and loose in this to perform functions.
By the way, in both cases the battery is 3,500 mAh . Enough to power the mobile throughout the day, despite its large screen.
Photography with Artificial Intelligence
The Alcatel 3 of 2019 not only has two cameras, a 16-megapixel one for general photography and a 5-megapixel one to detect depth and help with the bokeh effect or portrait mode, but they are supported by Artificial Intelligence. That is, the processor is capable of recognizing what the camera sensors are capturing, recognizing up to 21 different types of scenes and objects , and applying the most appropriate photographic settings: brightness, saturation, sharpness, finishes, etc. All this in real time and fully automatically. Without the user being almost aware of all this work. And for what? Well, to achieve the most striking photograph possible in each case.
Of course we can deactivate this function from the settings of the camera application if we are adept enough at photography. In addition, there are different modes to play with the lights and the exposure, or of course take portraits with the background out of focus . By the way, it is possible to adjust the focus in real time or afterwards , from the gallery.
The security of the Alcatel 3 of 2019 is present in front of and behind the terminal. And it is that it has two systems. Behind it is the fingerprint reader, at a good height to hold the mobile and be able to enter its functions. On the front, thanks to the camera for selfies in the notch, it is possible to activate facial recognition . An agile way to access the mobile just by pressing the power button. In a second the mobile recognizes the face and makes the lock screen disappear. And ready.
