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 1X review


Solid design ; Strong battery life ; Affordable

Lots of shutter lag ; Poor performance ; Android Go apps are sluggish ; Mediocre display ; Slow charging speed

Like its stablemate the Alcatel 3V, the Alcatel 1X is just too slow to recommend. It’s likely due to the weak processor, but this kind of performance doesn’t bode well for Android Go.

Alcatel 1X


The Alcatel 1X is a basic unlocked Android phone that costs less than $100, but it makes a number of sacrifices to achieve that low price.

Affordable. Pleasant design. Lightweight Android Go software.

Sluggish performance. Poor camera and call quality. Low-res display.

If you are on a very tight budget and require an unlocked phone, the Alcatel 1X works for basic calling, texting, and browsing. Beyond that, we find it hard to recommend. The Moto E5 Play varies in price depending on where you buy it, but it's...

This is what a $100 phone looks like


It'll sell at Amazon, Best Buy and Walmart.

Review: Alcatel 1x with Android Go


The Alcatel 1x is among the first Android Go devices to reach the U.S. market. Android Go is a pared-down version of Android meant to run on entry-level hardware. The 1x is a low-cost phone that includes a 2:1 screen, 8-megapixel camera, MediaTek...

I was hoping for more from Alcatel here. The 1x may be a $100 phone, but I've reviewed tons of $100 phones that outperform this one at nearly every major feature.

The Cost of Buying a $100 Phone


No one gets a cheap phone because they want to have a sub-par experience filled with stuttering and lagging apps. People get cheap phones because they're cheap, and usually work just enough to justify the low price point. Take the Alcatel 1X, for...

It's certainly cheap!

Hands on: Alcatel 1X (2019) review


A solid, low cost smartphone

Grippy, soft touch design ; Large display for low price

Not the latest version of Android ; Internal space may fill up fast

A solid, affordable smartphone that can handle apps and basic games, along with delivering good-enough cameras and a pleasant design.

Alcatel 1X review


Introducing the first phone with Android Go

Large, clear screen ; Reasonable cameras

More expensive than rivals ; Basic design

The Alcatel 1X offers those on a super low budget a relatively big screen smartphone experience without too much compromise.

Alcatel 1X: An affordable budget device humbled by ambition


If you're looking for a throwaway device with all the functionality that modern Android offers, this'll tick that box - but it won't look pretty.

Super cheap ; 18:9 display ; Unique feel-factor

Rough performance ; Average battery life

Is alright as a temp phone


Bought this as a Christmas present for my mother, phone keeps turning itself off and freezes quickly. Would only recommend as a temp phone, not one to use on a daily basis.
