Starting with the cheapest , the Alcatel 1X will also be the simplest of all with its 16 GB of internal memory in which to install not too many applications, and 1 GB of RAM that can be a little fair when using several applications at the same time although count with Android Go , it will help you be more fluid.

Here the screen grows, the resolution goes up to HD and the battery capacity increases to 3,000 mAh, although we are left without a fingerprint sensor.
