Alcatel 3L 2021 is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Far too big Perfectly good phone, which is all I was after, but it's absolutely enormous. It's painful to carry round in your pocket, and I'm not about to start carrying a bag round just for my phone. I'd rather leave the liability at home. I ought to have taken a bit more notice of the dimensions before buying, but If I wanted a tablet I'd have bought one. I'm sure manufacturers can do a bit better than this these days. I'd take fewer features if it means they can build a phone that isn't the size of a small pet! Disappointing, and i'd trade in if only someone would take it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay phone Bought this a few weeks ago to replace my Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite. It's an okay phone and will do me for a few months until I can upgrade my current contract. The battery does not last long at all, I find myself charging it 3x a day just to last me. The camera is decent, but to get the 48mp pictures you have to select 'high pixel' mode on the camera, which is not s default setting and it will revert back to 12mp every time you open it. The screen is poor for viewing at an angle, when using Google Maps in the car I could not see the screen even though it was on full brightness. It's a little bit slow compared to what I am used to and it isn't as responsive. I find WiFi speed to be a little slow even though my speeds are 50+. Like I said, it's an okay phone. Wouldn't recommend it unless used by a teenager or an older person.
