The phone is usable and convenient in every way - except it has no memory! A single app will cause the phone to have indigestion and cease to function. For that reason, it is almost entirely useless as a smart phone. Reserve your use to that of a utility spare phone, which is what mine is now demoted to. Just to be clear: do not buy if you want the functionality of a smart phone. My one app is SwiftKey, thereafter nothing could be loaded and other with-phone apps (such as PlayStore) had to be systematically uninstalled in order to receive texts. It's a shame, because the unit looks and feels good. Why no memory, Alcatel? It can't be that expensive? Altogether, a rather odd experience.
AnonD-598705, 17 Oct 2016A very important question: Does it have a notification LED? Thanks in advance!yes
Just a correction, screen PPI isn't 441 but 294, and screen/body is 69.5%
Yes it does have a LED at the top and highly recommend it, However you have to get a memory card at least 8GB as once the internal space is full it will start to freeze and the phone will stop responding
A very important question: Does it have a notification LED? Thanks in advance!
Can anybody recomend this phone, i'm looking to up grade (24 month contract & this is in my budget) would it be worth it as i've never heard of it, Thank You
I agree about the 8g low memory of this phone. As suggested by previous posts, I have formated an sdcard as an internal memory and it worked fine. No problem to transfer any data. Few applications can also be transfered onto the external sd, but it does not free too much space. Eventually, you end up with a saturated internal memory and this is really too bad. I am really looking at a solution to free some more space. Otherwise, I am quite pleased with this phone, at least for this price range.
How can I make the ring tone last longer before it goes onto voicemail :
Fantoddycat, 29 Sep 2016Have read that photos are needed to transfer to desktop once before moving to SD card. It's an... morefor that you could back the lost images should try the program for data recovery as
( wondershare data recovery, or recovery cd) there are many applications install the program to pc then connect to the phone and run to find lost data, also it have and android applications that you can install on the phone to find your lost data but better and faster going through pc

Fantoddycat, 30 Sep 2016Could you tell me how I can format sd card as internal memory? Nobody could answer this for me... more
sd card can not be internal memory means that which is built into the phone to remain internal memory and what is added to the phone SD card that is complementary and can not be the main memory so simply impossible to upgrade with external memory.

Am I the only one having success with this phone? I rather like it and does everything I need, just make sure you format your SD card as Internal Memory and then you're sorted.
The problems I have been hearing on here lie with Android 6 and not the actual phone or Alcatel themselves.
Have read that photos are needed to transfer to desktop once before moving to SD card. It's annoying enough and during transfer my photos to google device, it stopped and started rebooting. Then I found out all photos are gone except a few in google device. Does someone know what happened and how I can get them back? Thank you.
Myron, 18 Sep 2016I can't find where to move internal storage to SD cardNearly all apps are prevented from transferring to SD card on Android. Photos and other data can be transferred but on the Alcatel it can be tricky. However, I have found that if photos will not transfer, placing them on the desktop and then transferring from there does work. Currently I am managing to transfer every piece of data on to the sd card.
a great phone for the price , does everything a phone should , no issues at all with it . my one complaint is 8gb storage around 5 pre installed software , i would recommend it unless you think you can buy a phone for £70 and it does everything a top of the range phone
Bought it 3 weeks ago, now selling it for 40℅ of the price. Problems:
- 1st week the battery was average, then it became trash;
- Switching between 3G from both SIMs turns them off, completely.
- GPS module is crashing already, at the service center said that it's hardware problem. "Fixed" it 3 times and it still breaks...yes 3 times for 3 weeks.
- You can use your SD as a mount storage, high speed class 10 behaves like a 10 year old class 4 card.
- And for conlusion, the RAM is always taken at ~ 80℅ by the system, so u have ~20 for all of the apps you plan to use. Forget about games or more than 4 browser tabs.
