Reviews for the Alcatel Shine Lite

Alcatel Shine Lite Review
Source: Yugatech English
It’s clear that Alcatel has managed to squeeze itself inside the crowded sub-Php10K segment with the Shine Lite. It is equipped with nice features like LTE, Dragontrail Glass, fingerprint scanner, and Android Marshmallow. However, most of its efforts are placed on the premium build which might shun users who prioritize performance over aesthetics after considering the price.

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).


68.21%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
