Alcatel U3 3G is rated 1.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from don't even bother Bought this as im on a sim only contract, my g6 broke and needed a temporary replacement so went into carphonewarehouse, explained the situation, they gave me some brick phone saying it would work with my network which it didnt, went back and they decided this was the cheapest which would work with my network. Its honestly a joke how bad this phone is, 10 year old brick nokias run smother. Even texting it just crashes let alone trying to run any proper apps. I only installed soundcloud, facebook and messenger (+ only had about 2 contacts and 0 photos at this point) went to install snapchat and came up saying memory full. Went to tesco the next day and have bought a moto c for about £30 more and the difference is night and day, honestly do not buy this phone it is a complete waste of money

Rated 1 out of 5 by from BAD I bought this phone and it is ruined and it has a alarm clock set before hand buying it. I think you should not buy this phone. Because it is really bad and it changes peoples voice when you go on a call. BAD BAD BAD BAD BAD BAD BAD I think it is used before you can get it in your hands. Do not know what hands it may have gone before it may have went to a robbers hand and then you get trapped.

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.
