    Rated 5 out of 5 by Murph from Very pleased This was replacement for a phone that died, so l needed a SIM free, unlocked phone so that I could at least continue using the data plan I'm still in contract for till next June. I'd not heard of Alcatel so it was a bit of a leap in the dark, but I needn't have worried. It was really easy to set up straight out of the box, just took the old SIM out and put it in this phone, no problems, it was up and running. Delivery was excellent, arrived exactly as and when promised, (unlike the first replacement phone I ordered from Amazon, who insist on using Hermes. That one never arrived, had to get a refund. Thanks for nothing, yet again, Hermes.) Battery life is great, lasts three days. Well worth the money, I actually bought through a cashback website so got nearly £10 back.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by nimac from Superb phone for the money I've had my Alcatel 3 for a couple of months now and have to say I'm mightily impressed. You take a chance with a budget phone from a less popular maker but this purchase has paid off. Excellent screen, quick processor, reliable fingerprint sensor, great battery life, standard headphone socket and a good camera (the benchmark being my old 13mp LG), Android 9 - for £129, what's not to like? Well, a couple of niggles - the speaker is perfectly adequate for phone calls etc but not of a marvellous quality for music (surely most people use headphones anyway) and the auto brightness adjuster is way too sensitive - I turned it off and the display is absolutely fine. All in all, a sensible purchase for those on a budget wanting a fast phone with a good screen at a low price.
