Alcatel 3L is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice phone for the price I've had the phone for a few days now and, overall, I'm impressed with it. Better signal reception than the Sony it has replaced, battery life is good, OS is quick apart from a slight lag on app opening and the phone is still pocket sized whilst having a decent sized screen. A couple of less than perfect issues for me would be the rather tinny and 'sharp' sounding speakers, slightly washed-out screen appearance and the raised camera lens on the rear but at £130 for an octacore, with 4gb ram and 64gb internal memory, it's a lot of phone for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing for the price I've had this phone for around a week and it is decent, the cameras are great and take clear sharp images, the feel of the phone is amazing, the 4 GB memory allows you to easily load any app, the 50GB end user memory allows for loads of apps to be installed, along with 128 GB expandable storage to let you store all the photos you'll ever want to take. The whopping 4000 mAh battery means that if you just lightly use this phone you can easily go 3 days or so without charging it (assuming you stop apps you aren't using from the recent apps screen). I have tried playing some games on it and it's not that ideal for gaming, small optimised games will work but if you want to play something like shadowgun legends then expect lag, however with the crisp 6.22 inch HD screen it is ideal for movie watching. From a usability standpoint the speakers are in an idiotic position on this phone, they are only on the bottom with no back speaker, so covering them even a little ruins any experience trying to be set with sound, for example holding this phone at the sides and your finger goes along the edge of the bottom of the phone. I have had no problems with the flashlight as some people claim to be having and everything so far works (I have yet to try the NFC but it does come with this feature). It also does come with Android 10 that is kept up to date. Something worth noting is that this takes a nano SIM, just walk into your local store of the provider you are currently with (EE for example) and tell them you'd like to request a new nano SIM for a phone you bought, they'll likely ask for ID to prove it's you and scan this to get it verified, after that they'll ask for your number so they can setup the new SIM on their system for you. When searching for phone cases etc, ensure you look for "Alcatel 3L 2020", the year is important as prior versions have alterations. TL:DR version: For £130 why not? It has an amazing battery that lasts 3+ days with light use, it has amazing quality cameras, NFC + all the other bells and whistles, it has Android 10, 50 GB end user storage with 128 GB expandable, 4GB memory and a MediaTek MT6762 CPU.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 3L Spec Carphone advertised the 3L as limited to a 32 x gig SD card upgrade. I put a 64 gig in it without any problem. Only niggle so far was due to a pocket mode I could not get the torch to work. However I installed a torch app which added the ability to blink the torch and solved the problem. The only other item is the connector is older usb not a C as I had expected. Great phone for the price though.
