Accessories

Alcatel U3 3G is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Emergency phone - very slow Bought this as an emergency phone because I left mine behind. I guess it was the cheapest smartphone I could find in a hurry. Phone funtionality - slow to respond. The keyboard is difficult to use (making lots of errors, partly due to slow response time) and the connectivity with BT Wifi hotspots keeps dropping out. Having great problems connecting to home BT WiFi although no issues with other devices. Photo quality is not very good. Insufficient memory to run many apps. (I don't use many but cannot use all my usual ones). Don't buy this as a main phone! Still might be OK for temporary emergency phone, but be prepared for lots of niggles.
