Accessories

Alcatel U3 3G is rated 1.7 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Put a 32Gb card in and it's not a bad bargain. This was a phone I purchased to use while mine was getting repaired. Cost £17 with a payg sim. I tried using it out the box and it's awful as there is no memory. I did a factory reset and installed a 32gb card to expand the internal memory. Worked well, downloaded all the apps I needed. The phone is slow, the camera is poor, but it's an android phone for less than £20. You cannot go wrong if you need something cheap and cheerful. I will use it as my phone for major drinking sessions in future.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I understand it's cheap but... This handset is very cheap and I understand that means it's really basic and extremely slow, however, it;s so slow to the point of being unusable. If you have the patience of Job and you never ever use your phone except to answer call when someone calls you do not buy this phone; you will regret it for the rest of your life (or until you throw it in the bin).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from terrible this phone is a total waste of money. I only bought it because my other phone died a death and I need something quick. Trying to download an app ie facebook waste of time because the memory is all read filled up with their whatever going out and findind a good relacement

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't bother. This is worth nothing Slow phone. Limited memory even if you put in expandable storage. The phone lags and you'll pull your hair using one. I'd rather use a dumb phone than this. Expensive paperweight.
