Design and Display

Alcatel 3 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. It does not look like a premium device.

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

The 3, 000mAh battery is just enough battery capacity to last a day with not too intensive usage.The smartphone charges using a MicroUSB port, not a Type-C port and does not have the fast charge feature either.

The Alcatel 3 has a 13MP rear camera capable of recording 1080p Videos and a 5MP front camera that is also used to face unlock.

Hardware and Software

In that regard, the Alcatel 3 is powered by a Quad-core MediaTek MT6739 CPU with a PowerVR GE8100 GPU.

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.
