As a preamble to this test
Among all the possible choices, it becomes difficult to choose the smartphone that best suits your needs.Depending on whether you are a seasoned user or a beginner, the choices are different.Now let’s see the results of our situational testing.
This 20,03 4 Mo is not good for all uses.With lesser performance, it does not reach the level of the best.In short, if you choose it, it will be mainly for its price.
20,03 4 Mo for mobility?
The issue of mobility is important when it comes to a smartphone.Beyond its telephone function, we expect it to be as good for surfing the internet and usable when travelling.
That 20,03 4 Mo looks really small.Indeed, with its 2.4 inches, it is one of the smallest models currently available on the market.
That means it’s not practical for internet browsing.Don’t imagine watching a movie in good conditions either.The primary use of this phone would be to make calls…
If having several lines in the same device is essential for you, go ahead.You can only have one active plan with this phone.With a national package, you will be forced abroad to take out your card and put another local one in its place.
No protection on the screen of this 20,03 4 Mo.In other words, the scratches or the shocks that happen to us all, will inevitably appear.It is a good idea to purchase an adaptable screen protector as a complement.A negative point, however, is the battery capacity.There is only 1000 mAh, which is low for normal use.You’ll think about having an external battery backup nearby.
In conclusion on battery charging, Alcatel has not changed anything compared to previous models, which means no fast charge.Yet it has become almost indispensable, due to the speed at which batteries are now draining.
The right model for multimedia use?
For many, phones are beginning to replace TV sets.It’s become a handy tool.The same goes for listening to music.Thanks to the ever-increasing access to networks, and with easy-to-use applications, it has become very simple to watch a streaming movie (Netflix, YouTube or Disney) on a phone screen.However, not all smartphones will do the trick.
We would have liked the 20,03 4 Mo to have been more powerful on the multimedia side.He’s at the bottom of our ranking.An 2.4-inch screen with overly vivid colors.And its screen resolution is low.It is rather advisable to listen to music.
On the audio side, Alcatel wanted to do it right.You have an input for the 3.5mm plug of your headphones.
With its OS version installed, the phone supports wireless Hi-Fi audio via Bluetooth.The result is very pleasant to the ear.
On the sound side, we find that there are no stereo speakers.
Is it suitable for games?
Games are performance consuming.Batteries are put to the test every day due to the use of mobile internet and applications.The processor and graphics chip must also be of high quality to make the image fluid.In short, technology and the latest generation of components provide better playability.
Knowing that some users need more space, Alcatel has provided a free space for an extension.
In case you play a lot, you’re going to strain the drums.Moreover, this model is one of the least efficient at the moment.Its power of 1000 mAH will not allow you to enjoy it all day long.
We would have appreciated a higher level for displaying applications.unfortunately, it is at a very low reading comfort level.It won’t be easy to read the downloaded documents.You’ll have to force it to read the documents clearly.
Finally, and regrettably, this model does not allow for contactless payments.
The tool to make photos, movies?
People have been using smartphones for some time now… to take pictures.For a long time, manufacturers have been communicating about the millions of pixels their devices were equipped with.But this characteristic is not everything.Being able to share photos taken with one click is also important.Generally speaking, Alcatel has developed a recognized know-how for smartphones.
Little progress has been made by Alcatel.In fact, there is only one camera on this phone.
The screen resolution of this 20,03 4 Mo is among the lowest on the market.An image resolution of 2 Mp which will give a mediocre result.Note that it does not have the HDR function which would have improved the images.
The 20,03 4 Mo – in a nutshell
The design of this 20,03 4 Mo corresponds to an entry-level product.It can be a temporary choice or a temporary fix.In the end, it’s a second choice in addition to your main smartphone.
