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.
A model that fits in your pocket: the 5003 1C 32 GB.A modest 5-inch screen, which on the other hand is easier to fit in a pocket and easier to hold.

The right model for multimedia use?
More and more of us watch our phones at the expense of our TVs every day.It’s a device that is always at hand.The same goes for listening to music.Because of the power of smartphones and their connectivity, you can watch whatever you want.However, the first smartphone that comes along is not necessarily going to fit.
With a low reading comfort, the 5003 1C 32 GB is not designed for multimedia.It is one of the worst in this area.An 5-inch screen with overly vivid colors.For information, the resolution is 480 x 960.He’ll be more comfortable listening to music.
This model has an IPS LCD screen.The result is less light scattering, resulting in a wider viewing angle and deeper tones.
Alcatel has also designed this product for audio use.You have an input for the 3.5mm plug of your headphones.
Bluetooth technology will allow you to listen to music with connected devices.The transmission is fluid and the sound is clear.
And finally, for the sound, we were surprised not to find the stereo.
The Alcatel smartphone for online or local games
Games are performance consuming.This implies that the batteries must be able to keep up.The processor and graphics chip must also be of high quality to make the image fluid.In other words, the power of the technical components is essential to enjoy the game phases.
In the end, we found that the power of this 5003 1C 32 GB is below its competitors.The Mediatek MT6739 (28 nm) processor is weak and the graphics processing unit of a lower quality than we would have liked.The colors are medium and the images are not fluid.
In terms of storage memory, it’s in the worst.It’s 32 GB that have been installed, and that’s not much.In fact, for some passionate users, Alcatel has provided an extra space to add more.
Please note that in intensive use, the battery may not hold.The endurance of this model is one of the weakest.With a power of 2000 mAH, it will need to be recharged during the day.
We would have appreciated a higher level for displaying applications.unfortunately, it is at a very low reading comfort level.Its entry-level design with a smaller-than-average screen gives a disappointing result.Even if it remains legible, the clarity of the image and the display are below the competition.
Finally, it should be noted that NFC (contactless payment) is not possible with this smartphone.
For audio or video use?
People have been using smartphones for some time now… to take pictures.They have millions of pixels that capture details perfectly.But this characteristic is not everything.Being able to share photos taken with one click is also important.Alcatel has a long history of designing quality products.
Little progress has been made by Alcatel.There is thus only one lens, to be installed on this model.
Don’t expect to see a nice picture on this 5003 1C 32 GB; a lower photo resolution than its competitors.A definition in 5 Mp, which is necessarily less good than on top-of-the-range models.And last point about the image options, there is no HDR in this model.
It’s not the best device for making selfies.Reprocessing photos is not intuitive.This 5003 1C 32 GB is good for telephoning, but not for retouching images.
This phone offers very little space: 32 GB; this is the smallest phone available.Limited space to store your holiday photos and movies.To put it plainly, you will have to make room regularly or your memory will be saturated.
