Reviews for the Alcatel A3 XL
Source: Good Gear Guide Archive.org version
At $179 we’re inclined to be very forgiving for an Android smartphone, but there's not much to forgive here. This is a fully-functional phone and while it's not suited to elaborate VR apps, everything else is very usable (once loaded). The front camera is average but that's really the only downside. We actually really like the screen with its bright colours and large text/icons - it's comfortable to use and one of the best on the market for those with poor eyesight.

When considering the price point we give a thumbs up to Alcatel for beating similarly priced phones in the Australian market like the LG K4 that offer lower end specs than the Alcatel A3 XL.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.
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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
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).
85%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
