Good beginner with a small shortcoming

from Notebookcheck

With the Alcatel 1S (2020), TCL has succeeded in creating a successful overall package in the entry-level class. Some compromises have to be made, especially during camera setup. The additional ultra wide angle and macro lenses are useful additions, but the quality of the main camera is a little lacking.
