Alcatel's Go Play smartphone is built for underwater photos and could be great for social gamers


This colourful smartphone can survive a fall of up to 1.5 metres, Alcatel says. Here's what you need to know.

Alcatel Go Play review: get wet on a budget


If you're in the market for a budget smartphone that just will enjoy the pool as much as you do, the Alcatel Go Play isn't a bad choice, writes Andy Walker.

: While I’m not blown away by the Alcatel Go Play, it’s by far the best Alcatel phone I’ve ever used. It’s utterly practical, loves the splashes and brushes off knocks. For those who already own flagships, it’s an excellent secondary device for hiking....

Alcatel Onetouch Go Play: One Tough Budget Phone


Too many budget phones feel like they're held together by hopes and well wishes, falling apart at the first sign of trouble. That's not the case with the Go Play, a tough phone that took an admirable amount of punishment and kept going about its...

Water-resistant ; Withstands 5-foot drops ; Handy ViewMe app ; Better-than-average battery life

Weak video camera ; Lackluster display ; Subpar performance

The Alcatel Onetouch Go Play can survive everything from a dip in the water to an unexpected drop, making it a compelling budget option despite its lackluster performance.

Alcatel's Go Play smartphone is built for underwater photos and could be great for social gamers


BERLIN -- The best kinds of phones are the ones that forgive being dropped on the floor, plunged into the toilet, or buried in sand at the beach. Alcatel's new Go Play smartphone may be one such device.

Alcatel isn't the biggest name when it comes to smartphones, so I'm pleased to see the company taking strides to stand out with underwater photography and some interesting software. There's no word on pricing or release dates just yet, so keep your eye...

Alcatel Onetouch Go Play


Even at R3 500, the Go Play from Alcatel finds itself up against some stiff competition in the entry-level to mid-range smartphone ranks.

Solidly built; Good Battery life; Dependable all-round camera

Pricing not best in-class; Display a tad dull

All in all, the Go Play is a solid offering. It features a few little quirks like dual coloured back covers, underwater shooting and drop resistance that might attract users, plus the basics one expects from a entry-level to mid-range smartphone....

Review: Alcatel's Go Play 5in Smartphone cannot compete


Alcatel's mid-range, IP67 rated smartphone fails to impress against strong competition.

When you weigh up a Nexus 5X versus the Alcatel Go Play, unless you really, really, really need an IP67 rating on your smartphone, you should just grab the Nexus 5X and a case.

Alcatel Go Play smartphone review - waterproof, shockproof and affordable


The most avid users of smartphones are younger users who are enjoying a lifestyle their delicate devices often can't keep up with but the new Alcatel Go Play can put those worries at ease. The Go Play is a 5-inch Android smartphone with a rugged...

The Alcatel Go Play is an impressive smartphone that certainly punches above its weight in terms of features and performance. That fact that it’s waterproof, shockproof and dustproof and still priced below $300 makes it an even more attractive product....

Alcatel Go Play – “Life-Proof” smartphone – Review


It's pretty important not to spend your time comparing $299 phones with $999 phones if you're out there hitting the stores trying to find your next smartphone. But when you stop and look at what's available between $250 and $350 you'll be blow away by...

Tough all round smart phone


This phone is iP67 rated for water & dust resistance as well as being able to be dropped without smashing and breaking. Included cover backing is very easy to grip. Haven't dunked it in water yet, but have dropped it a few times without any damage. Big...
