Where do you go for a simple $100 Android phone?
Alcatel has a champion in mind. The Alcatel 1X is an extreme-budget device that uses Google’s software for low-power handsets. The Android Go Edition makes itself known for apps that take up less space, like Facebook Lite and Maps Go.
The phone is small (or “palmable”, if you prefer) and specs are unsurprisingly bare bones.
You get a 5.3-inch screen in an 18:9 ratio, an 8-megapixel camera with flash and a fingerprint sensor on the back. Storage is laughably slender: 16GB of space for your photos and apps, and just 1GB of RAM. You can add a memory card for up to 32GB of extra space.
For $50 more, thegives you a 6-inch screen, 12-megapixel camera and larger battery.
