Reviews for the Alcatel A50
The Alcatel A50 is a decent starter phone with a solid build quality and adequate performance that won’t break the bank. I wouldn’t recommend it for power users, but it’s a decent phone nonetheless, especially as a first phone for teens with its modular add-ons.

That being said, with its inferior screen, lack of NFC, lack of fast-charging — in spite of it featuring a USB-C port — and its slow, sluggish performance, it’s difficult to say that the A50 compares favourably against the now almost two-year old Nexus 5X.

The Alcatel A50 is more interesting than most $100 phones. If you're sold on the modularity gimmick it might be worth it, but keep in mind that only the LightUp cover is available right now. The Motorola Moto E4 isn't quite as exciting, but it offers compatibility with more carriers and better camera performance, making it a bit more well-rounded, and our Editors' Choice. If you're willing to spend more, the $185 Moto G5 Plus is a great option with a performance boost across the board.

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).
76%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
