I own the Evolve ONE. Poor battery life, slow processor. Email sync issues. A phone is really a computer. This is a cheap computer. Buy a decent phone. The Evolve II is not compatible with my Chase Bank phone deposit app. Get a Samsung or LG.
DO NOT BUY. HORRIBLE phone.threw this thing across the room 6 times before I could finish typing this review. Doesn't function. Keyboard is the worst in existence, good luck trying to type. Biggest chore of the day is trying to send a text on this thing. Headphone jack sucks, breaks easy. Same with charging port. Everything crashes. Won't receive half your texts. If there is one drop of moisture within 20 miles, every time you touch the screen it will get super confused and try to open like a hundred different things. Total waste of time and money, I can't even think of anything good to say about it.
Solinium Pulse, 07 Nov 2014As my first phone, this is really good for the price. I got it for $50, but I see some of you ... moreI brought this phone eight months ago in Puerto Rico for $100.00, right now T Mobile is selling it for $79.00. It is pretty good, although I paíd much more for it than in the states. I use DU Speed Booster and DU Battery Saver, recently installed Lollipop Launcher, works very well. I talk, text and look up información with Google Search. Not bad, I own a tablet, so when I need other información I use my tablet.
Seriously, people have other agenda's here I think . This is a great phone with a great value. So these negative reviews? I'm pretty sure they're from the competition. This is a great phone!
Anonymous, 02 Jan 2015I want a new phone AND a refund now..thinking of filing class action lawsuit!!I'm on my second Alcatel in two mths can't call out on them. People can't hear me.
Yeah, I've has my phone for less than a year, and after a few weeks I was looking for a new phone. The keyboard crashes- A LOT, Chrome randomly shuts down, Google Play music will turn off or switch songs in the middle of my JAM (still pissed; one does not simply skip Bohemian Rhapsody), and you cannot send pictures. The few GOOD things are that it charges fairly quickly, and the back facing camera takes SUPERB pictures. ........That's it.
I've had this phone for about a year and two months, and it is actually really crap. I had to replace the first one in a matter of months after the headphone jack wouldn't work AT ALL and the bezel around the screen and camera were getting shot to bits. Second time around, I (somehow) got it to connect to a Smartwatch 2, and now I'm afraid to actually use the damn thing because more times than not the actual launcher doesn't respond as well as everything else and I have to restart the phone. This happens inexplicably on any app, and most of the time it sits on my desk, off. Please, I beg you, DO. NOT. BUY. THIS. GARBAGE.

Its very slow, the keyboard disappears while typing, Facebook messenger along with regular texting closes by itself I could make a huge list of things that are wrong with it. Wow its horrible.
This phone is crap, I bought this phone in September by October I started having problems, now all of a sudden I can't sent pictures in my texts anymore only by emails, who read emails anymore.. lol. it keep saying unknown error, attachment unsuccessful, also I can't open any downloads that someone sends to me . Why is that Alcatel?
what a heck of a phone which is really and originally slow on the internet. Alcatel should really build upon this phone to release a comforting one to replace this..awwwww !!!!!

This phone really was a headache. It froze up all the time and the keyboard was slow as molasses. Not to mention when typing it'll go away randomly and take minutes to come back up. Plus the phone is slow. It got to the point where I'd have to wait a good 2 mins just to get it to skip a song. Also sometimes you can be surfing the internet and it will randomly go off. I expected the camera to be bad but this phone overall is just a pain to deal with. I would not recommend this phone.
It was a good phone at first. Then after a few months it started having lots of problems. Now i haven't dropped it or anything and it randomly started messing up. Yes I'm on my phone constantly you'll never see me off it, but I've done it with others, no problems occured. It's buttons stop working occasionally it'll take me out of an app for no reason it shuts off and now i can't even get into it anymore because whenver i try to put in my password it freaks out and won't let me do it. At first i thought maybe it's just me, but then i read these lovely reveiws and realized it's just a bad phone in general. Definitely not buying a phone like this again.

I'm 14 and I am a tech wiz myself haha, I guess it's just our modern day tech getting to our brains. Well I had this phone. I slammed it against the wall I don't know how many times. I got so frustrated with my evolve that I actually cried several times. I lost it, but my family switched to Virgin Mobile USA anyway so I didn't care. I'm thinking of buying it for my 2 year old sister as a toy that she can play games on. She wouldn't care how scrappy it is, because all the phone even amounts to IS a two year old's toy.
