Alcatel OneTouch Pixi 3 (4) review

 

The Alcatel OneTouch Pixi 3 (4) is a very cheap smartphone designed as a starter phone. Easy to use, with limited functionality, it offers a basic Android experience with social media and games ready installed. It also has the advantage of being very...

The One Touch Pixi 3 (4) could make a good first phone for a young teen. It's cheap and compact, and includes social media and a few games, as well as being able to make calls and send texts. With limited potential for running apps, you don't need to...

Sim Free Alcatel PIXI 4 3G Mobile Phone - Black

 

Its a nice looking phone that really does look like its worth ten times more. The speed is fast and snappy. One major downside is the fact that it is loaded with preinstalled apps that cant be deleted and do take up a lot of space.

Alcatel is odd

 

The Alcatel Pixi 4 comes in different sizes, and can be 3G or 4G. even when you get these things to match you can still get different things, sockets in different places, who knows what else . . . just odd

Great Product for the price

 

I needed a replacement SmartPhone as my Second Hand one stopped working. I selected this and am delighted. It works well and meets my needs. I know there are limitations with memory size, etc., but that doesn't give me a problem. I would buy one again.

A pretty good phone for really low price

 

At the budget end of the market I was expecting a "just about usable" phone. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the phone is far better than that!

Not as good as expected from Alcatel

 

Nice looking phone and we'll constructed. Battery life is poor and certainly not as advertised. Also some of my old apps are not compatible with this phone which is poor. Wouldn't recommend.
