"Affordable" doesn't have to mean "cheap" with Alcatel's latest budget-oriented smartphone.

The Alcatel name might not carry the same cachet as Samsung or Apple, but the lesser-known brand has carved out a strong space for itself in the budget smartphone space. Its phones attempt to blend stylish designs with capable hardware and an affordable price tag, often to good results.

This looks to hold true with Alcatel's latest wallet-friendly smartphone, the Alcatel 1S. As the most budget-conscious handset Alcatel announced at MWC 2019, the 1S is aimed at folks wanting modern amenities like a large screen and a dual-lens camera at a price that won't break the bank.


  • 5.5-inch 18:9 screen
  • Brushed metallic finish


  • Dual-lens 13MP/2MP rear-facing camera
  • 5MP camera for all your selfies


  • UNISOC processor is designed for efficiency, not raw power
  • 3GB of RAM is decent for a budget phone


  • 3,060mAh battery
  • Up to 24 hours of talk time, according to Alcatel

  • Available outright at $199 from July 2019
