Alcatel OT-708 Touch Review by 3G.co.uk

 

It's cheap, certainly, but in this case you really do get what you

It's a touch-screen phone for less that £50 – not a common thing even now

5MB of internal memory is barely enough to store your contacts, let alone pictures and music

It's cheap, certainly, but in this case you really do get what you pay for.

Alcatel OT-708 One Touch Mini

 

The Alcatel OT-708 One Touch Mini is a budget touch screened mobile available on pay as you go terms. At less than £50 you shouldn't expect it to rival the iPhone. And it doesn't. But it offers a 1.3-megapixel camera, 2.4-inch touch screen, blingy LED...

The Alcatel OT-708 One Touch Mini isn't up there with the top-end touchscreen handsets, but as a basic touchscreen mobile that's ultra-affordable it's a top piece of touch-on-a-budget. Alcatel OT-708 One Touch Mini is tagged with Alcatel OT-708 One...

Alcatel OT-708 One Touch Mini review

 

Budget touchscreens aren't what they used to be. The advent of the bargain bucket HTC Tattoo and T–Mobile Pulse have redefined what cheap mobiles should do. But for those whose wallet has been totally clobbered by the recession, there is hope, in the...

Cheaper than a night out at Wetherspoons

Small screen, touch gestures take ages to register

As touchscreen phones go, it's won't win awards, but it's ideal for bargain conscious gadgeteers

Alcatel has never has a strong reputation, mainly because its devies are low spec, super-cheap phones that are only available on one . Before the demise of Woolworths, you could pick an Alcatel phone up for less than £10, although now the French...

Looks nice but terrible phone.

 

It's a nice looking little phone with a bright display. I bought it because it was so cheap and I needed a new phone. I regretted this purchase within an hour of use. I found the touch screen unresponsive and the text input almost unusable without th...

Consumer review (reevoo.com)

Alcatel OT-708

 

The phone itself has a stylish design, probably very popular with younger users who might enjoy its touch facility, music and camera functions.

A little too sensitive for my taste, probably ideal for younger users with smaller hands however I found this phone very difficult to use, the keypad a little too sensitive and not particularly user friendly.
