General design and screen

Alcatel 1T 10

Alcatel 1T 10 is marketed completely in black

There is not much to expect for the conformation of this model and this is confirmed by just having a first look. Nails on official dimensions of 243.2 x 162.2 x 9.55 mm and a total weight of 450 gramsit is clear that it is not the smallest, lightest or most comfortable to use tablet that has been seen in stores, while its conformation logically focuses on a black plastic casing.

Another element that is not quite well achieved is the considerable thickness of the bezels that surround the screen, leaving room for its physical keys for power and volume change on its upper frame. Yes indeed, When interacting with said panel, users can be left calm that the basic standard of quality or fluidity is met of touch actions.

A) Yes, Alcatel 1T Smart 10 has capacitive support for 10 touch points, while its 10.1-inch size responds to a native resolution of 1280 x 800 inches. In this way, you can consume videos, movies and series in high resolution.

Performance with many limitations

Alcatel 1T 10

Alcatel 1T 10 works on the basis of Android 10

As stated above, the tablet makes use of the Android Go platform based on version 10 of the Google mobile platform. This means that the interface has been simplified to maintain good fluidity considering the lower hardware components available, even with the availability of some Apps also optimized for this entry-level mobile experience.

Alcatel 1T 10 is based on a MediaTek MT8167B processor composed of four cores at a frequency of 1.3 GHz, accompanied by 2 GB of RAM, IMG GE8300 GPU at 500 Hz and an internal storage space of 32 GB that can be expanded through a microSD card up to 128 GB. There is also a 4080 mAh Lithium-Ion battery that promises a range of up to 400 hours on standby.

It is worth emphasizing the integration of two speakers and two microphones with support for noise cancellation, in addition to a 2-megapixel front and rear camera with f/2.4 aperture with video recording capacity at 720p at 30 fps. For connectivity, a reversible USB-C input takes care of battery recharging, while Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct and Bluetooth 4.0 take care of wireless.
