Design and Display

Being a budget smartphone the Alcatel 3V is made of plastic with a glossy finish that is some sought of smudge magnet  Like some of the recent smartphones, the Alcatel 3V also comes with reduced bezels at the top and bottom and much slimmer ones at the side. There’s also the camera, flash and the fingerprint sensor below, on the rear panel. Up front the touch buttons have scrapped to reduce bezels and there is the arrangement of the sensors and camera above the screen.

The display here is one of the highest point of this smartphone as it is not only sizeable but also of good quality. It also appears not too large with the slim bezels as it doesn’t overtly affect the overall size of the smartphone. The Alcatel 3V has a 6.0-inch 2160 x 1080 pixels display which is not so common for budget smartphones.

Battery and Camera

As for battery capacity, the Alcatel 3V sits somewhere in between as it come with just enough to get you through the day. Unfortunately the smartphone does not support fast charge which means you will have to stick with the conventional few hours of charging. The battery capacity lies at 3, 000mAh which is not bad for a budget smartphone.

There is also a dual camera on the back side for more detail and the popular bokeh effect. This is made up of a primary 12MP camera and a 2MP sensor. In the selfie department, the Alcatel 3V provides you with a capable 5MP camera which is enough for your snapchatting and media activities.

Hardware and Software

On the flip side, the hardware featured on the smartphone is out of place even for a budget tagged smartphone. That being said, there is a Quad-core MediaTek MT8735A processor running at 1.4GHx and a Mali-T720 GPU for sorting out graphics.

Moving on, the Alcatel 3V ships with a 2GB RAM and a 16GB follow come storage space. While the storage space is a bit small, it can be expanded up to 128GB using a memory card. Alcatel 3V also runs on Android 8.0 Oreos which is the latest at the moment.
