Review: Alcatel 1x with Android Go

Hardware Software Wrap-Up Comments  

I was hoping for more from Alcatel here. The 1x may be a $100 phone, but I've reviewed tons of $100 phones that outperform this one at nearly every major feature.

In the 1x's favor, it does offer decent hardware, respectable battery life, support for memory cards, and a small footprint that's good for small hands. That's a pretty short list.

There's much more going against the 1x, such as the crummy display, below average voice and data quality, and below average GPS and Bluetooth performance. The pared-down Android Go platform is what it is, but even the "Go" and "Lite" apps have a hard time running on the 1x's underpowered processor. The phone is just way, way too slow for any device in 2018.

If you want or need an unlocked phone for $100, buy the Motorola Moto E5 Play instead.
