Alcatel 3V


Alcatel 3V review, price and features: Is this budget device a good starting point or should you spent a bit more to get something better?

Big, sharp display ; Camera quite capable ; Available for a low price

Poor to middling performance ; Cheap design ; Clunky UI

The Alcatel 3V lays on a big, bold display, and it’s possible to pick one up for significantly less than the RRP. But its cheap design, inconsistent performance and mediocre custom UI leave it trailing behind the very best of the sub-£200 pack.

Alcatel 3V review


A cheap phone that can't hide its budget roots

Big, sharp screen ; Low price ; Camera can produce good results

Sluggish performance ; Poor battery life

You get a big sharp screen at a low price, but the phone’s just too slow

Alcatel 3V review


Headline features at a bargain-basement price

Very low price ; 6-inch FHD+ screen ; Fingerprint scanner

Cameras are hit-and-miss ; Childish software overlay ; Mediocre performance

The Alcatel 3V doesn't have the best hardware and it's not very pretty, but considering the impressively low price, this budget offering packs a lot in.

Alcatel 3V review


Alcatel's latest budget offering is a real mixed bag – is it a contender for the best phone in the sub-£100 category?

Bargain price ; Dual display modes ; Face unlock

Poor camera/video ; Short battery life ; Weak specs ; Cheap design materials

Ultimately, I can’t tell you what to buy but I suggest you consider the Vodafone N8 (if you can still find one) or preferably invest another £50 and go for the Honor 7A or the Motorola Moto G6 Play – neither cost that much more in the overall scheme of...

Alcatel 3V


Tall 18:9 screen and dual rear cameras are all the rage, but you don't often find them on budget phones like the Alcatel 3V. Here's our full review.

Alcatel at MWC 2018


Living up to its long-standing reputation TCL brought a traditionally "abundant" roster of new phones to MWC 2015. Also, in keeping with tradition, most of these come in a large number of versions, with plenty of optional features, so bear with us here.

Alcatel 3V review


The Alcatel 3V has features found in more expensive phones, but this is a cheap phone that feels, well, cheap.

Attractive design ; Low price ; Decent display

Poor performance ; Slow camera ; Slow charging ; Too little storage

If Alcatel had picked a slightly faster processor and squeezed in an extra 1GB of RAM, we would be recommending the 3V almost unreservedly as an amazing bargain. At $150 we can live with some of the other limitations because there’s a lot to like here,...

The Alcatel 3V has a big, high-res screen for just $150


You'll be able to buy it from Amazon, Best Buy and Walmart.

Alcatel 3V Smartphone Review


Plastic with style. The Alcatel 3V is priced well and should be powerful enough for casual users. Alcatel has managed to make the device look stylish despite using a plastic case. Find out in this review whether the Alcatel 3V's internal hardware is as...

strong low-light camera performance ; dual-SIM ; dedicated SIM and microSD card slots ; high contrast display

short battery life ; outdated SoC

The Alcatel 3V achieved comparatively mediocre results in our performance tests largely because of its outdated SoC. This old hardware impacts battery life too, where the 3V is woeful compared to our comparison devices. The Alcatel 3V is an affordable...
