    A screen for movie buffs

    You’ll enjoy watching movies on the Alcatel 1 thanks to its 5-inch display and impressive 18:9 ratio. The HD quality picture and widescreen view makes movies look great, so it’s just the ticket for keeping yourself entertained on the train.


    Fun photo tools for social media lovers

    Love sharing photos. Then you’ll enjoy the Instant Collage tool that lets you arrange your shots in a way that’s perfect for sharing. Or try Photo Booth for booth-style shots to help you strike your best pose.

    One-handed photo mode

    One-Handed mode makes taking photos easier by placing all the camera buttons into the corner of the screen for easy reach. Now you can change the camera settings and snap your shot faster without missing the moment.



    Up the storage

    There’s 8GB of storage built-in. But if that’s not enough, simply insert a MicroSD memory card and enjoy up to 128GB more of space for your movies and photos. Sweet.

    More room for the apps you love

    The Alcatel 1 runs on Android Oreo (Go Edition). It’s a much leaner version of Android with no filler apps – just the apps you know and love. That way you’ve got even more room to download the stuff you want.

    Alcatel 1 is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Phone654 from An overall excellent phone. A very good phone bought it in March and has been a amazing phone - good for everyday use or as a spare back-up phone. Use it for contacting family - capturing special moments. I would recommend this 100%.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by Jaguar Ford from Not all that! This phone is not all that but it does job. Space-bar is too close to the Back button so when you type a message for example it is annoying

    Rated 5 out of 5 by RobertM90 from Briliant phone I bought this not having the highest expectation for the price but I was wrong. It's a compact device an fits perfectly in my hand and pocket and it performs really well, no lag or glitchy interface. The camera is great too, 5MP but perfectly sufficient for everyday needs. I'm going to buy a second for my hsuabdn too
