Reviews for the Alcatel 1S 2021
The Alcatel 1S hardly gets any improvements this year. The focus is mainly on the latest Android version and the slightly larger display. You can find out why this is a bit too meager in the review.

We’ve been covering Alcatel phones for a number of years now, and some familiar observations and criticisms continue to apply. The Alcatel 1S, like its predecessors, is extremely cheap, which is its one outstanding virtue. For less than £100 you’re getting a functional smartphone that can handle all of the basics. For anyone who simply wants a phone for calling and messaging, that may just be enough. However, for anyone looking for a bit more from their phone, it doesn’t quite pass muster. Its archaic chip fails to offer any fluidity, its display is dim and low-res, and its camera system only operates effectively in bright yet even lighting.

Alcatel is a French telecommunications company originally founded in 1898. The company specializes in the design and manufacture of cell phones, fixed-line phones, networking and communications solutions, and other telecommunications products. Alcatel is headquartered in Paris, France, and operates worldwide.
The telecommunications equipment manufacturer merged in 2006 to form Alcatel-Lucent. Various business units were sold to other companies, so the Alcatel brand name is used by different companies nowadays. The brand names "Alcatel One Touch" and "Alcatel Idol" are used by the Chinese company TCL for smartphones and tablets.
67.87%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
