Android is closely integrated with various Google services, such as Google Maps, Gmail, and Google Drive, which makes it easy for users to access and manage their data across multiple devices. The 1S utilizes Unisoc SC9863A chipset. This octa-core CPU is managed by an advanced scheduler that allocates tasks to the CPU for speed and power efficiency in real time.
The 1S utilizes PowerVR GE8322 GPU. A GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) is a specialized chip that is primarily designed to handle and accelerate the processing of graphics and visual data. It is responsible for rendering images, videos, and animations on a smartphone screen. PowerVR GPUs are a popular choice for mobile device manufacturers, and are known for their power efficiency and strong performance. We use AnTuTu app to measure general processing performance. AnTuTu Benchmark is the most popular benchmark app for Android phones.
|Screen size||5.5 inch|
|Resolution||720 x 1440 px|
The 5.5 inch phone comes with IPS display. The IPS display provides enhanced features, such as optimal viewing angles, color accuracy, invariable color reproduction and better power consumption. The 5.5 inch display make this smartphone pocket-friendly. The size of the screen is measured diagonally, from corner to corner. A larger screen typically requires more power to illuminate, which can impact battery life. The display of Alcatel 1S is multitouch capable. Multitouch technology enables the device's touchscreen to detect and interpret multiple touch points on the screen simultaneously.
|Internal storage||32 GB|
|Memory card slot||microSD|
With 3 GB of RAM, a smartphone can run multiple apps simultaneously without experiencing any significant lag or slow performance. Having more RAM alone does not necessarily guarantee better performance, and other factors such as the processor and storage speed can also impact overall performance. 32 GB of internal storage is generally considered to be the minimum amount of storage you would want in a smartphone. The 1S has 32 GB of internal storage. The internal storage of the 1S (32 GB) can be expanded with a compatible microSD card.
