Alcatel 3L Review — A ridiculously cheap phone that’s surprisingly good
Source: Ausdroid English
As with many things electronic, you can get great bang for your buck through the range (within reason) and this is no exception. But you can also get a lot more phone for a bit more money, the Realme C3 at $269 and Motorola G8 both spring to mind. That’s not to say that the 3L is a bad buy, quite the opposite – if you’re shopping on a really tight budget or just need something low end for someone who doesn’t want or need the bells and whistles then this is a great option.

65% Alcatel 3L review: A modest effort with modest results
Source: Good Gear Guide English
The Alcatel 3L rarely delivers above and beyond the kind of conservative confidence the price tag inspires but it doesn’t feel like a struggle to use in the way that some other budget devices do. It’s a modest smartphone that achieves modest results. It’s not hard to expect more but, at the same time, I can’t say that I really expected any less either.

Apart from that, I like the emoji feature as well as the automatic scene recognition which really does aid with your picture taking. So for £174.99 its a good phone for those on a budget I just would have hoped for more storage.

Hands on: Alcatel 3L (2019) review
Source: Techradar English
The Alcatel 3 (2019) could be one of the budget hits of 2019 with what appears to be a great balance of features, power and style for a price that is hugely attractive.

Imagination PowerVR GE8320: Integrated graphics card for mid-range ARM SoCs.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


The former French manufacturer of telecommunication equipment merged to Alcatel-Lucent in 2006. Several business segments were sold to other companies, so the Alcatel brand is now used by various companies. The Chinese company TCL uses the brand names "Alcatel One Touch" and "Alcatel Idol" for smartphones and tablets.

The market share in the smartphone + tablet segment is very small, but there are quite some recent reviews in different languages. The ratings are average (as of 2016).

71.46%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
