Reviews for the Alcatel Plus 12

20% Review: Alcatel PLUS 12 2-in-1
Source: PC Authority English
The Alcatel Plus 12’s slow CPU and slow storage make for an awful experience. Even for basic tablet use, websites take far too long to load. Using a large spreadsheet in Excel is a headache. It is supposed to be a simple, basic machine for low-end use, but nobody deserves this sort of slowness on a brand-new device. An iPad is cheaper and faster for tablet use and for laptop use, there’s plenty of sub-$500 laptops that are better than this. Spend a little extra money and get a Windows tablet with an i3 or i5 CPU, it’ll be well worth it.

Intel HD Graphics 500: Integrated low-end graphics adapter with DirectX 12 support, which can be found in some ULV SoCs from the Apollo Lake series. Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
N3350: Frugal dual-core SoC from the Apollo Lake series for inexpensive notebook. Runs with clocks between 1.1-2.4 GHz and integrates a DirectX 12 capable graphics adapter. Compared to the previous Atom generation, the per-MHz performance of the CPU architecture was vastly improved and the graphics adapter was improved as well.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
11.6":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

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.

0.365 kg:

This weight is somewhat high for a smartphone. Smartphones with a big screen and small tablets weigh as much, usually.


Alcatel:

The former French manufacturer of telecommunication equipment merged to Alcatel-Lucent in 2006. Several business segments were sold to other companies, so the Alcatel brand is now used by various companies. The Chinese company TCL uses the brand names "Alcatel One Touch" and "Alcatel Idol" for smartphones and tablets.

The market share in the smartphone + tablet segment is very small, but there are quite some recent reviews in different languages. The ratings are average (as of 2016).


20%: This average evaluation is exceptionally bad. There exist hardly any laptops, which are rated so negative.
