How will you use your Smartphone?New technology or basic model – what’s the difference?This model, the W10 Alpha 32 GB uses Android, which is already a choice in the telephone world.
Now let’s see the results of our situational testing.
The design of this W10 Alpha 32 GB corresponds to an entry-level product.This model is very far from the top of the range, and may eventually meet the need for a first phone for a child.Only its well-placed price is interesting; it can be a temporary choice.

|Taking pictures or filming|
Is the W10 Alpha 32 GB compatible for nomadic use?
Your smartphone must be able to accompany you at all times. Mobility for surfing the internet, even on holiday.
That W10 Alpha 32 GB looks really small.A size of 5.71 inches that would have been normal in the early days of smartphones, but not anymore.
It will be more difficult to click on this small area.Forget the videos, too.It’s a model made for telephoning, mainly.
The device is equipped with Wifi.This allows you to easily have a connection with a comfortable speed.This smartphone has GPS.You’ll appreciate not having to ask for directions anymore.Effective functionality almost everywhere.
It is sometimes convenient to have several phones in one. And this model can handle multiple Sims.In other words, having several subscriptions with the same device.This model allows you to manage several operators.This will be convenient for those who travel regularly.
We found out that this W10 Alpha 32 GB doesn’t have reinforced glass.In other words, the scratches or the shocks that happen to us all, will inevitably appear.If you decide on this model, remember to use a transparent tempered glass film, adapted to the shape of the screen.
A negative point, however, is the battery capacity.With only 3450 mAh, it will be difficult to last a full day.You’ll think about having an external battery backup nearby.
Lg did not choose to install the fast charge feature on this model.Too bad, it’s a very interesting feature today.
The right choice for watching movies?
For many, phones are beginning to replace TV sets.It’s become a handy tool.It even replaces the radio, or to listen to music.Because of the power of smartphones and their connectivity, you can watch whatever you want.However, the first smartphone that comes along is not necessarily going to fit.
This is not a model designed for multimedia.He’s not doing as well as most of his competitors.Its screen is not big enough to enjoy a video, let alone a movie.For information, the resolution is 720 x 1512.At the limit, it will be suitable for listening to music.
The on-board technology at the display level is the LCD IPS.The result is less light scattering, resulting in a wider viewing angle and deeper tones.
On the audio side, Lg wanted to do it right.This model has a 3.5mm jack input, and allows your phone to play good quality music.
Using its Bluetooth functionality, you can pair your phone with all the devices in your home (speakers, TV…).The result is very pleasant to the ear.
Finally, we deplore the absence of stereo speakers.
Is it suitable for games?
For games, you need performance.The same applies to the ever-increasing number of applications that reduce battery capacity.On 3D games, the right processor and quality graphics chip ensure smooth rendering.In short, the more advanced the components are, the better the gameplay will be.
After our tests, we find out that this W10 Alpha 32 GB is in the lowest rankings.The Unisoc SC9863A (28nm) processor is weak and the graphics processing unit of a lower quality than we would have liked.The rendering at the image level is inferior to the competition.
In terms of storage memory, it’s in the worst.This model has 32 GB, which is low.And because Lg predicted that some of you would be demanding gamers, you have the ability to expand the available memory.
If you play a lot for several hours you will find that the battery is low.The result is at the bottom of our ranking.Its 3450 mAH power will force you to recharge before the end of the day.
It will be necessary to limit the applications installed on this smartphone.unfortunately, it is at a very low reading comfort level.Its entry-level design with a smaller-than-average screen gives a disappointing result.The precision of the image, the colours; so many elements that will limit your desire to read on this phone.
And to finish on the application part, we note that the payment function via telephone (the NFC), is not available here.
For audio or video use?
The quality of smartphones allows you to take pictures as well as many cameras.They have millions of pixels that capture details perfectly.However, this is not the only criterion to be taken into account.Being able to retouch the obtained photos is appreciated.Lg is renowned for the quality of its sensors and the design of its smartphones.
It’s a surprise from Lg.There is thus only one lens, to be installed on this model.
Don’t expect to see a nice picture on this W10 Alpha 32 GB; a lower photo resolution than its competitors.An image resolution of 8 Mp which will give a mediocre result.The resolution is sufficient for your selfies.If necessary, you can even retouch the images with the embedded software.You will be able to see at which point each point in the image is correctly captured.This smartphone has only 32 GB; that’s very little in terms of storage.Not enough to back up all your video files or music.It will be necessary to transfer your contents to other backup spaces very quickly.
The W10 Alpha 32 GB, a good choice for the right use
The design of this W10 Alpha 32 GB corresponds to an entry-level product.With lesser performance, it does not reach the level of the best.In the end, it’s a second choice in addition to your main smartphone.
