Even i could roll them into one. Firstly, the sony, which i shoot all of my a role in 4k for the channel, and i also wanted to replace the the black view, which i was starting to not trust its reliability was starting to get a little bit questionable and the battery on its way Down so speaking with ian from rugged phones, australia, he recommended i give the the alcatel a go. So this is the wp, 10 5g enabled and i’m going to do a review on it, based on its ability to be a rugged and useful outdoor phone. So straight out of the box, taken it out of the box, obviously, and and and how to play with it, it came with uh with a charger which i needed to put on. Unfortunately, assurance is that i’d get an australian plug. I found i’m not too concerned about that, because i’ve got enough lying around and i’ve got adapters, even if i didn’t so the wp 10 at first look has got android trying to configure the native android. I don’t know if you, if you are aware of how difficult it is to configure native android, so what i’ve managed to do is download a management program. I got this. One here is nova it’s a free app, and it just keeps everything. Nice and organized it’s got a great draw that’s. The one thing that native android doesn’t have doesn’t have a draw: you’ve really got to go looking for your apps and try to get them onto your desktop.
So let’s have a look. What the specs are on this particular um, this particular phone, so it’s, waterproof dust, proof shock proof you can drop, it put it in water, it’s rated to ip68. So the connections here for usb uh can be locked off the microphone and the speaker are all waterproof. The camera is uh, the cameras are behind a little plastic screen, so they’re not going to get damaged. Only that screen is – and there is no three and a half mil jack for headphones – it’s all either through here in an adapter or it’s uh it’s bluetooth, which is where the world is heading. Okay. So a 6.67 inch screen it’s a full hd, um and it’s got the gorilla glass on the front. You can see there’s a little peephole there. The screen goes all the way around and when you’re looking at programs when you’re looking at videos, all you’re going to do is have that little gap there, unlike the black view, which has a dip there, which is actually more annoying than having that so it’s got Eight gigabytes of ram and that’s dual channel ram it’s got 128 gigs of rom, but no extension, you can’t put a micro sd card in there. Although it’s got a dual sim, the sim isn’t the range the way it is here where you can sit a an s micro sd card in the space of one of the sims big unit, which has an 8 000 milliamp hour battery.
So let’s just give it a a quick look and see how heavy this this thing actually is. Three point: 365 grams that’s, pretty damn heavy that’s starting to head toward half a kilo of phone. The black view, on the other hand, is in the order of about 320 325 thickness 17.6 millimeters width 83.4 and a height of 178.. It makes it quite a substantial unit, chipset so it’s, the mediatek demensity 800 it’s uh it’s, four cortex a76s, two gigahertz and four cortex a55, two gigahertz it’s fast, but uh. One of the things that i bought this for was its camera. Now it has the uh. The 48 megapixel sony camera in there, which is the imx 5 8 2, not the 5 8. Now the 582 will give 4k video it’ll give 48 megapixels on one of those lenses only are either 13 or 2. The front camera here is 16 megapixels thing that concerns me with the particular sony module here. Is that i’ve just recently researched all the sony? Phones, not one single one of them, use this particular or the other mod, the module, the 582 or the 586 module and i’m wondering why that is it’s. All these chinese phones it’s all the cheap ones that are using this sony, chipset and sony itself isn’t. Even using it so that’s a little bit of a concern and i um i’m going to do some more research and i may even bring out another video and especially if i find some results, i’ll, let you know, but i’ve actually done some some video with it.
We’Ll have a look at the results of that, so the aspect ratio on the display is 20 to 9., full hd 2400 by 1080. Pixels 10. Point multi touch, so you can touch it with 10 fingers or 10 points and it’ll it’ll touch very bright and and works. Well. It’S got a fingerprint reader on the side, which is reasonably quick up and down volume buttons there. It has a dedicated, sos button there, which will automatically dial a number and it’s got a ptt or a push to talk right now. I don’t have anything programmed for either of those, but my gut feeling for an outdoor phone would be an sos app, a gps, something like that for the ptt. This particular model was unlocked for all networks. I really can’t see the point. Having going all to all the trouble to put 5g in and not have wireless charging, it does not have wireless charging it’s got nfc the only way you can charge it is with a plug that just takes out one of your options, which is a little annoying Because i’ve actually got a battery pack with a wireless charger on it. I was sort of hoping i could continue to use that it’s uh it’s, going to be useless in in this particular scenario, so it’s built in gps into into the phone body it’s got its own aerial, which supports gps, glonass, galileo and and the baidu. So great connectivity in that regard and you shouldn’t get lost if you’ve got the software in there now the sensors, as i said before, it’s got a fingerprint reader.
It’S got a proximity sensor, an ambient light sensor, an accelerometer, a gyroscope electronic compass and on their website. It says it has: it has a coolant meter or a kilometer. The cooler meter or kilometer is the meter that measures current within a circuit, and i don’t know where or how it would do that. So some of the other features it’s got is uh. Smart gesture air gestures, glove mode, dark mode, underwater mode which uh, which is we’re, going to test that out and see if we can get some decent footage screen cast screen night light mode, green record, fm radio, app, lock global versions and a whole language support. So it’s not short on any of that, which is pretty much google’s operating system anyway. So there you have the alcatel wp. 10.
