The 5033D 8 GB adapted for internet use and travel ?
The main advantage of a smartphone is to be connected everywhere and therefore to be mobile. If for you, a phone is just for making calls, you probably won’t need a smartphone.
That 5033D 8 GB looks really small.In fact, it’s one of the smallest (5.7 inches) compared to other smartphones.
Obviously with this size, it is not easy to surf the net.Even less good for watching a movie.It’s a model made for telephoning, mainly.
In addition, through its Wlan option, you can connect to wifi terminals.This allows you to easily have a connection with a comfortable speed.This smartphone comes with GPS.Your travels will be facilitated, even abroad.Unless you’re at the bottom of a cave, you’ll be able to know where you are at any given moment.
Several Sims can be activated on this smartphone.In other words, the ability to use multiple phone lines in this unit.This will even be possible with competing operators.This will be convenient for those who travel regularly.
It is important to note that this model does not include reinforced glass.No protection against scratches or shocks that can occur during the lifetime of all smartphones.If you decide on this model, remember to use a transparent tempered glass film, adapted to the shape of the screen.
A negative point, however, is the battery capacity.With a power of 3000 mAh, you will be forced to recharge more often.This requires organization and always having a back-up charger available.
In conclusion on battery charging, Alcatel has not changed anything compared to previous models, which means no fast charge.Too bad, it’s a very interesting feature today.
Analysis of multimedia functions.
The use of the telephone now exceeds that of television.Perfectly designed for our daily needs.You can also listen to continuous music anywhere.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.
This is not a model designed for multimedia.He’s at the bottom of our ranking.It’s hard to watch a video.The resolution is low: 720 x 1440.He’ll be more comfortable listening to music.
The screen of this model has been switched to LCD IPS (In-Plane Switching).The result is less light scattering, resulting in a wider viewing angle and deeper tones.
On the audio side, Alcatel wanted to do it right.A 3.5mm input to connect your headphones or speakers.
Bluetooth technology will allow you to listen to music with connected devices.The result is very pleasant to the ear.
And finally, for the sound, we were surprised not to find the stereo.
Alcatel’s smartphone: a good choice for making video calls?
For games, you need performance.Batteries are put to the test every day due to the use of mobile internet and applications.On 3D games, the right processor and quality graphics chip ensure smooth rendering.Simply put, the higher these features are, the better your gaming experience will be.
In the end, we found that the power of this 5033D 8 GB is below its competitors.The components are starting to date (Mediatek MT6739 (28 nm) processor), and the quality is less good.Which makes it look just passable.
A smartphone with RAM, but the bare minimum.You will only have 8 GB for your videos and music.And because Alcatel predicted that some of you would be demanding gamers, you have the ability to expand the available memory.
Please note that in intensive use, the battery may not hold.The endurance of this model is one of the weakest.Its 3000 mAH power will force you to recharge before the end of the day.
It will be necessary to limit the applications installed on this smartphone.A below-average configuration with a reduced screen size of 5.7 inches.This is an entry-level model: 282* pixels per inch.The images are of lower quality, they can sometimes pixelize, and give a final rendering that is painful for the eyes.
In addition, you have the NFC component installed by default.A way that will allow you to pay with this smartphone.
For audio or video use?
Having become an essential use of smartphones, the photo function has made great strides since the first generations.For a long time, manufacturers have been communicating about the millions of pixels their devices were equipped with.Other important criteria must be taken into account, such as zoom, HDR function, Flash Led, Panorama mode.Being able to retouch the obtained photos is appreciated.Alcatel has a long history of designing quality products.
The company has done the bare minimum in this case.This model thus has only one objective.
However, it does not have HDR technology.
This device contains only 8 GB of storage space; less than most.Forget about your music and movies, in addition to your many applications.It will be necessary to transfer your contents to other backup spaces very quickly.
Finally, the 5033D 8 GB…
Our analysis showed that this 5033D 8 GB wasn’t made for all purposes.It can be a temporary choice or a temporary fix.In short, it is mainly the price that will guide your choice.
