Reviews for the Alcatel A30

60% Alcatel A30
Source: PC Mag English
The Alcatel A30 is a decent budget phone, especially if you're looking for a backup or starter device. For less than $100 you get good network performance, an HD display, and a fairly recent version of Android. But Alcatel makes quite a few compromises to reach that price point, including a slow processor, lackluster battery life, and poor camera quality. The A30 is still a reasonably solid choice for the price, but it's hard to fully recommend when other affordable phones like ZTE's Avid Trio and Zmax Pro, and LG's Stylo 3 are out there. Even the older Blu R1 HD remains a solid alternative. And while the Motorola G5 Plus is a decent step up in price ($184.99 for the Amazon Prime model), you get a tremendous increase in specs, performance, and features, making it our Editors' Choice.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Alcatel:

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).


60%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
