Design & display

Stunning design

The Alcatel Shine lite is an eye-catching device, with a polished glass and metal build. The glass curves right up to the border of the phone, and there’s a precision cut fingerprint sensor on the back. 

Powerful display

The 5-inch HD display provides high-quality visuals with brilliant colours, even in direct sunlight.  


Accurate snaps

The rear 13MP camera is capable of high quality, accurate photos, even in low-light thanks to the large aperture. With support from the dual tone LED flash too, you’re guaranteed bright and clear photos every time. 

Bright selfies

The front-facing lens puts you in the frame, and also has its own flash. So if the need calls for a selfie on a night out, which it often does, you can be sure it’ll be full of light. 

Under the hood

Rear fingerprint scanner

On the back of the smartphone is a perfectly circular fingerprint sensor, specifically positioned so you can naturally unlock the phone. 

Internal power

On the inside there’s a 1.3GHz quad-core processor keeping everything running smoothly, alongside 2GB RAM.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't get this phone. I bought this less than a year ago and I'm already having to get another phone. On most days the battery will take an hour just to go up 10%, the camera and microphone are awful, when I use it for too long or have my data on more than half an hour it gets too hot too handle without the case, it won't recognize any SD card I put in, the location is usually off by at least 10 feet (although usually more) which makes using maps nearly impossible and the left speaker stopped working a week after I bought it. Definitely not worth £120 even if all the features were working.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worse phone i have EVER come across I bought this phone a couple of months ago and had nothing but trouble with it.. Keeps freezing and pop ups can stop you answering it, No decent phone covers for this phone ANYWHERE. they just don't make them so if your in construction or some other industry that would require a half decent phone case avoid this device as!! I did set out to buy a Samsung but was talked into buying this by a staff member in shop.. Hard to believe Nokia own Alcatel!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing mid range phone Currently Alcatel flagship phone is the Idol 5 which I would strongly recommend. However this midrange phone is something else, responsive, fast has many of the specs had the retired Idol 3 from around 2 years ago. I simply love this phone. You also seen it in the latest Transformers movie. Built wise the quality is incredible. I never had a phone with, a glass screen before. The only negative I have; I can't find an official case for it, not even online the Alcatel online web store, there are plenty of third party ones. You probably don't need a case because of the glass screen
