Alcatel 3 Specs and Price

Best Jumia Tech Week Deals

Alcatel has been busy with its almost confusing 3-series comprising of four smartphones including Alcatel 3, 3C, 3V and 3X. All of these are mid-range and features the new Alcatel face unlock technology. This is not the only thing they have in common has you can also find that premium 18:9 aspect ratio. However, it seems to be relatively inferior to the others spec wise especially in display section.

Alcatel 3

Design and Display

To be candid, the Alcatel 3 will not wow you in any way and it pretty much looks like an average smartphone. It has round edges and a somewhat bloated look with the camera, flash and fingerprint arranged vertically from up to down in that order followed by Alcatel inscribed at the back.

Nothing is spectacular about the display either, as it features a meagre HD+ LCD screen. In comparison with the better display options available at the moment this is quite low on crisp colour reproduction. That being said, the smartphone sports a 5.5-inches 1440 X 720 pixels display with a pixel density of (293 ppi).

Battery and Camera

You would find just enough battery capacity to last a day in the Alcatel 3 provided usage is kept minimal or not too intensive. This is because you only have a 3, 000mAh battery which might not get through the daily mile in intensive use. Sadly, the smartphone charges using a MicroUSB port, not a Type-C port and does not have the fast charge feature either.

One of the things people do with their smartphones besides surfing the net and social media will be taking pictures or recording videos. The Alcatel 3 has this taken care of with a 13MP rear camera capable of recording 1080p Videos and a 5MP front camera that is also used to face unlock.

Hardware and Software

It has the same in terms of SoC alongside the Alcatel 3X, which does not really have much gusto. Not withstanding, it is still sufficient for a smooth performance on the smartphone, although not as fast as you have in high-end smartphones. In that regard, the Alcatel 3 is powered by a Quad-core MediaTek MT6739 CPU with a PowerVR GE8100 GPU.

Still on the hardware, the smartphone has 2GB internal memory and 16GB of storage space built-in. The storage space is quite small considering the system software will be taking a but out of it already. However, there is support for a MicroSD expansion up to 128GB. Like it’s siblings, it also runs on Android 7.0 from the box.

The smartphone is available for sale for about 67, 000 Naira from various online stores depending on your location.
