The Alcatel 3 has a lot to offer the budget-conscious smartphone buyer.

For folks who want a decent yet affordable smartphone that doesn't look like it came out of a Happy Meal box, Alcatel is always a solid choice. Its phones strike a smart balance between form, function and affordability, an approach epitomised in one of the company's latest handsets, the Alcatel 3.

Revealed at MWC 2019, the Alcatel 3 sits at the higher end of Alcatel's budget offerings. With a large 5.9-inch screen, a capable Snapdragon processor and a dual-lens camera, it delivers on all the key features of a modern smartphone while leaving out the luxuries the average person rarely uses.


  • 5.9-inch screen
  • Extra-wide 19.5:9 aspect ratio
  • Sleek metallic frame


  • Dual-lens 13MP/5MP rear-facing camera
  • AI scene detection promises to enhance your photos automatically


  • Snapdragon 439 promises solid entry-level performance
  • 3GB of RAM is sufficient, though a little low


  • 3,500mAh battery is above-average for a budget handset
  • No fast-charging means a lot of time spent chained to a power outlet

Pricing and availability

  • Alcatel has yet to reveal pricing or availability for the Alcatel 3.
