Reviews for the Alcatel 1T 10
The Alcatel 1T 10 is a very light 10-inch tablet in the lower price segment. However, due to its affordable price you have to lower your sights considerably in terms of its features.
The latest Alcatel tablets feel cheap, but they also have low enough prices that you may just let them get away with it.

Model: The Alcatel 1T 10 is a budget tablet that sports an IPS display with 800 x 1,280 pixels resolution, quad-core processor and 16 GB expandable storage. It is aimed for entry-level users who need a tablet for casual usage such as watching videos, checking emails, reading ebooks and run fewer demanding apps. It's hard to get excited about tablets that feature such low-end spec as the Alcatel 1T range, but the prices are low, so they will suit those looking for a simple experience or want something to entertain their kids. The tablet feels cheap on hand, but its price is low enough that users may just let it get away with it. The Alcatel 1T tablet comes with simple designs, but neither feels premium in the hand. Each has a plastic back that is reminiscent of Amazon Fire tablets. The company refers to it as 'raw material', but don't expect anything that feels luxurious in hand here. In terms of color choice, a user can choose from Premium Black or Blueish Black. The Alcatel 1T 10 has a larger display at 10.1-inch with dimensions of 255 x 155 x 9.35 mm and a weight of 415 g, which means it's not easy to hold in one hand. But you've got a lot more screen real estate which should make watching a video or doing general tasks easier.
As for hardware specifications, it has MediaTek's MT8321 quad-core chipset with 1 GB of RAM onboard. It will seem like an okay experience for users, but don't expect these tablets to handle high-end games or lots of apps running at the same time. As for storage, the 1T 10 comes with 16 GB (11 GB to use after the OS is installed). That's not enough for most tablet users, so if a user wants one of these, it is recommended to put in a microSD card. The tablet is compatible with cards up to 128 GB. As for software, the 1T 10 run the latest Android 8.1 Oreo software right out of the box. Whether Alcatel will manage to keep them up to date with software upgrades in the future remains to be seen, but it's great to have the latest software already running on here. The inclusion of an ‘Eye Care Mode’ (designed to reduce the effects of blue light) and a ‘Kids Mode’ is a plus. The latter of which is a version of the operating system designed with younger users in mind. Not only does this mode offer a selection of pre-installed apps and games suitable for younger users, but it also comes with additional settings to allow parents to pre-set various aspects such as usage limits.

This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
This is pretty heavy for a smartphone. Usually, small tablets weigh as much.
