Android Go is the suitable solution for all these people who have a extremly small price range however need a pleasant phone. For fewer than ?100, because of to this enlightened version of Google’s running system, you could obtain a phone what provides a smooth user experience even with low-end hardware sections. The newest Android Go smartphone released is the Alcatel 1x which debuted at CES 2019 in Las Vegas. Below, we will compare the new TCL’s low-level with other important Android Go phones produced in China: Huawei Y5 Lite and Nokia 2.1.
Excluding the Nokia 2.1 what arrives with an aluminum body, all these Android Go have a full polycarbonate design in order to cut costs. Given the aluminum body of the Nokia 2.1 and the Gorilla Glass protection for its display, it has the suitable build quality and it must be the most resistant. However, it is not the most pretty one as it has thicker bezels thanks to its 16:9 panel. Alcatel 1x has a absolutely improved look thanks to its 18:9 screen and its clean back. Note that Nokia 2.1 is the only smartphone to function stereo speakers for a far more solid audio performance, whereas Alcatel 1x is the only to function a fingerprint reader what is placed on the back cover.
In each case, you get an HD+ panel, the resolution is not so high but it is enough for a good level of detail. Huawei Y5 Lite does not seem to have an IPS screen, so it need to be inferior. I would personally prefer Nokia 2.1 due to the fact it has a wider 16:9 panel that is In addition protected by Gorilla Glass. Further more, the huge panel along the stereo speakers is capable to provide a improved multimedia performance, at least with video contents. That is why I prefer Nokia 2.1 whenever it comes to panel and multimedia.
Nokia 2.1 has the fastest and most powerful processor: the quad-core Snapdragon 425. But it has just 8 GB of internal storage and only 1 GB of RAM. That is why talking about experience, Alcatel 1x should be a bit improved. Despite its processor is fewer convincing, it has 2 GB of RAM as effectively as 16 GB of internal memory. The higher amount of RAM should make it easier to manage far more apps at the exactly time, whereas 8 GB of internal storage found on the Nokia 2.1 is sometimes insufficient on a 2018 cameraphone. On each of Those gadgets, you get a micro SD slot to expand the internal storage. All the smartphones have Android Go installed, based on the variant 8.1 Oreo.
On the paper, Alcatel 1x has a excellent camera department. The dual digital camera on the back with a 13 MP major scanner and a 2 MP depth camera certainly makes the change. It must be in a position to capture far more detailed shots as effectively as a better bokeh effect. Further, the front camera ships with a front-facing LED flash that is not introduce on the Nokia 2.1, whereas it could be found on the Huawei Y5 Lite. However the latter’s rear digital camera must not be at the same level as Alcatel 1x 2019, that is why it takes the second place.
Nokia 2.1 is a battery champion and it can last far more than two days on a single charge. It has a 4000 mAh battery what can typically provide a very long battery life even on midrange and high-end smartphone, so imagine on an low-level one with a low-resolution screen and a low-end chipset. It is one of the best handsets for battery life. Judging from the parts and the marginal difference between the capacities, Alcatel 1x and Huawei Y5 Lite should have much more or fewer the similar battery life, but the software optimization will undoubtedly make the difference and we still could not test it as the Alcatel 1x was released just two days ago.
The value is the strongest point of these smartphones and every smartphone with Android Go installed out of the box. Whereas Nokia 2.1 and Huawei Y5 Lite have are sold at about ?100/$115, Alcatel 1x 2019 will soon hit the shelves with a value tag of ?120/$137 in Europe. Even though it has only 8 GB of internal memory, I would personally give a possibility to the Nokia 2.1 because of its stereo speakers, its better build excellent, its bigger battery and the huge software support by HMD Global in the last year. However someone might Furthermore which includes Alcatel 1x 2019 since of its fingerprint reader, a far more advanced hardware department and a improved rear digital camera. For me, the battery makes the difference on an entry-level smartphone, that is why I would go for the Nokia 2.1. I would undoubtedly not choose the Huawei Y5 Lite because it offers nothing special in comparison with its rivals and it is inferior to both Alcatel 1x and Nokia 2.1.
