- Analysis by KJ David

The Alcatel 1S is a 2019 addition to the brand's budget-class smartphone lineup whose specs are loosely based on the slightly-older 1X model. Like a good number of its prepaid competitors, the 1S's cons include a modest 5-megapixel fixed-focus front-facing camera that's at least interpolated (software-enhanced) to mimic an 8-megapixel shooter. Moreover, it comes with only 32GB of native memory expandable by up to 128GB, whereas a few tantamount budget Androids offer 64GB of on-board storage.

Although it won't likely join Phonerated's list of the best octa-core smartphones on the market, we flagged its 1.6GHz + 1.2GHz dual-cluster octa-core processor as a pro, considering that its 1X cousin settles for a cheap quad-core-only engine. It also bumps the 1X's measly 2GB RAM up to a more respectable 3GB.

Joining its selling points is a 3060mAh battery that scores a 37-hour talk time (2220 minutes) , and a 700-hour standby time (roughly 21 days) , both of which sound highly-reassuring compared to the corresponding average marks as we were reviewing its technical pros and cons.

Also among the 1S's feature set is a dual rear camera offering native bokeh effects for portrait shots and AI-aided scene recognition. It consists of a 13-megapixel primary lens interpolated to 16 megapixels and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. In charge of the security department is Alcatel's Face Key feature and a typical rear-mounted fingerprint detector.

Tying together this low-budget Alcatel phone's pros and cons is a 5.5-inch 18:9 Full View display sitting on a run-of-the-mill 1440 x 720 HD+ definition , with a polished brushed metal finish covering the rest of its body. It runs on Android 9.0 Pie out of the box.

Summing up, the Alcatel 1S is a middling 2019 smartphone tailored to first-time smartphone users who are pretty meticulous when it comes to battery life.
