If this first characteristic is not blocking for you, let’s go to the tests to find out if it is adapted to your uses.

The 5048Y 128 GB adapted for internet use and travel ?
Your smartphone must be able to accompany you at all times. You will use it to make phone calls, but also to surf and search for information on the internet.
That 5048Y 128 GB looks really small.A modest 5-inch screen, which on the other hand is easier to fit in a pocket and easier to hold.
It will be more difficult to click on this small area.Forget the videos, too.It’s a model made for telephoning, mainly.
Also note that wifi will be available to accompany you.This means that the connection will be easier during your internet browsing.This smartphone comes with GPS.You’ll appreciate not having to ask for directions anymore.Important when you’re away from home.
Considered as a gadget by some, it does not manage packages or multiple operators.This model does not offer dual SIM storage.It will force those who have a local package and who bring their phone with them when they travel, to take out the card and put in the one for the country of destination.
Detail that is missing on this 5048Y 128 GB is the absence of reinforced glass.No protection against scratches or the shocks of everyday life.It is a good idea to purchase an adaptable screen protector as a complement.Autonomy is one of the worst features on this model.The 2000 mAh will barely be enough to last a day between calls, texts or games.You’ll think about having an external battery backup nearby.
And since Alcatel did not consider it useful to put a fast charge on this model, we will have to wait.Yet it has become almost indispensable, due to the speed at which batteries are now draining.
A device for watching movies and listening to music?
More and more of us watch our phones at the expense of our TVs every day.Perfectly designed for our daily needs.You can also simply listen to music.Access to the network allows you to watch a video stream whenever you feel like it.However, the first smartphone that comes along is not necessarily going to fit.
This is not a model designed for multimedia.He’s not doing as well as most of his competitors.It’s hard to watch a video.A resolution which is moreover in 480 x 960.He’ll be more comfortable listening to music.
The on-board technology at the display level is the LCD IPS.That is to say that it offers very good colours and very wide viewing angles.
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 transmission is fluid and the sound is clear.
And, on the nice but missing functionality side, we have the stereo speakers; the mono sound is shallower.
Is it suitable for games?
For games, you need performance.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.Simply put, the higher these features are, the better your gaming experience will be.
Our tests place this 5048Y 128 GB in the middle of the category.Helped in this by a powerful KTKT processor.The graphics processor makes it possible to manage beautiful images.
When it comes to storage memory, 32 GB is the minimum on most smartphones today.This model has 128 GB, so there’s plenty of it.But some of you will need more; that’s why Alcatel has left a free slot for a memory card.
Please note that in intensive use, the battery may not hold.Unfortunately in the case of this model, it is one of the worst.Its power of 2000 mAH will not allow you to enjoy it all day long.
It will be necessary to limit the applications installed on this smartphone.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.
Efficiency for audio and video
People have been using smartphones for some time now… to take pictures.The millions of pixels of the sensors make it possible to make high quality photos.The ability to stabilize at the time of shooting or the Burst mode are also important points.The possible retouching via application is also interesting.Alcatel is renowned for the quality of its sensors and the design of its smartphones.
Little progress has been made by Alcatel.This model thus has only one objective.
Don’t expect to see a nice picture on this 5048Y 128 GB; a lower photo resolution than its competitors.With a definition of only 5 Mp, you will have lower quality images.Unfortunately for image lovers, it does not have HDR.
This phone contains 128 GB of space, including space for system or mandatory applications.That leaves some room.
You will be able to store anything you wish.Or you can install all the applications and games you like.And you’ll have time to think about which platform you will transfer your content to.
The 5048Y 128 GB, a good choice for the right use
Our analysis showed that this 5048Y 128 GB wasn’t made for all purposes.This model is very far from the top of the range, and may eventually meet the need for a first phone for a child.In the end, it’s a second choice in addition to your main smartphone.
