Alcatel A3

The Alcatel A3 is a simple 4G handset with limited features and performance at an accessible price.

Design

  • Fingerprint sensor is a nice addition in a budget phone.
  • Screen resolution is a little on the low side
  • Android 6.0 is getting on in years, but it's still a decent operating system.

Camera

  • Standard camera hardware should be fine for most basic photography.
  • Software interpolation is neat but can't compete with higher-resolution lenses.

Performance

  • Low-power hardware is as expected for a phone at this price.
  • Standard tasks shouldn't give it too much trouble.

Battery

  • Up to 10 hours of talk time and 330 hours on standby.
  • Most users should have no issue getting a full day of use out of a single charge.

Pricing and availability

  • Price: RRP $129
  • Where to buy: Harvey Norman | JB Hi-Fi | eBay
