Avoid this phone at all costs. With only 512 MB of RAM and a 1.0 Ghz Dual Core processor it's a source of frustration to any user. It's painfully slow, even when you root it, you press anything and have to wait 10 or 20 seconds to get a response from the screen. Plus it never received the planned upgrade to Android 5.0 Lollipop. Alcatel, which is a brand of TCL China, is well known for deceiving customers, even bundling malware and adware in their phones. Avoid ANY phone from Alcatel or TCL. I don't know how this phone behaves with a custom ROM but, given that the specs are so poor, if it can't run stock Android 4.4 properly you can be sure it will struggle to run pretty much anything.
I tried to record a call that I received and I got it ... Now I need to know where to locate the audio file of that call and that I can not do it. It's an alcatel onetouch pixi 3 (4).

Neannie, 19 Aug 2017Horrible! Everything went crazy. First thing to come up is camera. Called tech support. They r... moreThe only way to get out of safe mode on a Alcatel pixi 3(4) is to do a hard reset, press the power button and volume up at the same time and a sub menu will appear, go down to hard reset and press yes and the phone will reset itself to "Factory settings" But make sure all your stuff is backed up first ! I've had my Alcatel pixi 3(4) for 18 months now and l truly Hate the piece of crap!
Horrible! Everything went crazy. First thing to come up is camera. Called tech support. They re-started it-lost all my data. Got it put back in and wrong #'s popping up on contacts. Can't hang up while it's dialing-no "phone" showing to hang it up. Then it went into "SAFE MODE", CAN'T find out how to get out, and no tech support on week-ends or after hours!!! Anyone know how to get out of "safe mode"??
I am so frustrated with this phone!! My screen is locked I can recieve calls but unable to make calls. Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
since getting this phone i cant use it. cant remove emergency calls only even tho i have credit and data package bought for this phone. have it only a few days but seriously thinking of selling it on as its of no use to me if i cant make calls on it
Don't buy this phone, don't even accept one for free. I promise you, the lag can be up to 15 seconds using apps and keyboard. I guarantee you will be filled with evil and furious anger if you have to rely on this plastic piece of annoying crap. Trust me please.
I just wish I had bought the Wiko phone instead. I HATE this phone! It sucks completely. I bought it based on Alcatel's promise (clearly announced next to the phone on the store) to upgrade to Android 5.0 Lollipop (which Alcatel NEVER did, making them LIARS and deceivers of their customers, and because it has a removable battery. OMG! I'm regretting that move till this day... After 1 and a half year, the KingoAndroidRoot apk was able to root it, so at least that. A friend of mine had one Alcatel One Touch but with much better specs than this and after 3 years her phone just died. Yeah that's right: Alcatel products SUCK!
Just DON'T BUY anything with the Alcatel brand on it. Specially this piece of crap phone.

This is a cheap phone and expectations should not be high. Having said that, I really like it. I bought it as a stop-gap measure when my Samsung went missing and don't regret it. THe basic screens are really easy to navigate. Battery life is a couple of days if you are not using it too much, touch pad easy to use. The only thing that is slow. If all you want is a handheld to make phone calls, tap into the internet and take the occasional photo it's great. Now that I have my Samsung back, I've chosen to keep using the pixi 3. I'm so sick of running out of battery!
Worst phone i've ever seen. I prefer to have NO phone than having this phone.
After having this phone for six months and rarely using it for calls and do not go on the internet ,I basically only text with it ,the battery doesn't keep its charge for more than two days .I have called the company four times and each time they are going to send me a new battery ,it has been four months since my first call and and still no battery .Every call is the same ,they verify my address and tell me I will receive a battery in 7-10 business days .Needless to say I do not recommend this phone or this company
OK , so my friend still uses this phone after 2 years and very rare it closes at 90% battery life.The touchscreen is the same - horrible and very unresponsive (what to except from a TFT).He hates the internal storage - 2GB is too less for him.I think the rating should be about 7/10.
