Alcatel U3 3G is rated 1.5 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy Bought this as a cheap phone to use and its battery us shockingly bad and the processor kept crashing could barely load texts let alone basic apps I paid £35 for the phone in this store. Definitely rubbish I'll be chucking the phone as I didn't keep the box

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible I bought this to use for phone calls, basic browsing and as a wifi hub for a notepad. It crashes and freezes so often it cannot be used reliably for any of these. At the moment the home button and the task buttons on the bottom of the phone do not work and the settings controls have disappeared from the swipe down panel at the top. It's going in the bin. Carphone Warehouse should not be selling this, whatever you do, do not buy it.

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
