I have been using this phone for a long time, this phone is slow today if you update or install more applications , coz it only has less than 512 ram and 1.3 GHz arm A7 mediatech possessor. Now my battery is almost dead. Touch position is not perfect all time , combined with slow ness it becomes awful.
The good of this phone is it's radio plays without ears phone plugs in, display is good although it's lower resolution compared to others.
Now im with this phone and soon i will get xiaomi redmi 3s and im looking forward to it, because tis phone i s veeeeeeery slow.
Aleks, 03 Jun 2015Avoid this phone! It is slow, unresponsive and has a terrible touch screen. I have been using ... moreYour problem (lake of speed) is for many other kind of phones. because of ram.
yes. RAM (512KB) is much less.
Try buying smart phones that have (at least) 3GB ram. Don''t accept phones have less than 3GB.
the lowest price of smart phones are xiaomi, LetV, LeEcho and so on.
Caektown, 19 Sep 2016This phone really sucks. I have had Alcatel phones in the past and they've been fine, this ... moredid you download too many apps ? remember that the Ram of the Phone s only 512mb so it means once the ram reached it's limit the apps will crash / automatically close, try to uninstall some of your applications , try to root the phone uninstall bloatwares, which is not usable for your phone to work smoothly
Need answer,everytime i use the camera it cannot display the picture after it is been shot
This phone really sucks.
I have had Alcatel phones in the past and they've been fine, this is the first smartphone of theirs I had and I was bitterly disappointed.
It's slow (think dialup), it crashes trying to run applications (particularly games), it freezes, it restarts itself and it's jammed with so many pre-installed apps and 'essential' software that they immediately eat up a great deal of your storage space.
At the very least an SD card can be used, except if you go into applications the hone seems to think there is nothing on the SD even if you've moved as many files and apps to it as is possible.
Camera is meh.
I had mine less than a year, it most recently died a very horrible and sudden death - no idea what happened, but I think the hard drive may have died on me. It started off booting but then not loading when I unlocked it, instead I got spammed with error messages saying everything had stopped.
Then it just wouldn't boot.
On the positive side, my preschooler is very happy with their new toy.
my alcatel one touch has developed som problems. so p,lease neeed adivce.
touch screen at the low level does not work.insensitvie.i it does not sense when i touch a number 8 or 0.it insteads opens emergency number.
my sim card for mtn got blocked and its asking me for puk pin. and when i try to enter any number it directs me to emergency number.please help me
Tidz, 18 Apr 2016Hi can someone tell me if its possible to screen shot on this phone?yes can screenshot in this phone just press power button and volume down at the same time
Since it has 512MB RAM , dont install application like Clean Master . They stay resident in memory and eat the free RAM . Remove such applications . Instead , hold down the Home button and then press "Close all " to free the RAM .
If the phone begins to restart on its own replace the battery .
It is a nice budget phone . The sound is good . The memory is little . The camera is not great .

I saved up... moreHi adaptoid03 ,
I read what you wrote and I want to help you to improve the performance for your phone. the simplest and fastest is to do'' factory data reset'' , and so the phone back to its original state, -then- of course was good but as you put more and more applications it becomes slower and freezes . but this 'erases all data' on the phone so it's best to first get all your data and if you have an ''SD card'' in the phone then you first took it out . for better work phone and a longer life battery, ''delete facebook application'' and after log in through the browser . delete all useless applications that take internal memory, but ones that are in the system ,and can not be explicitly delete, then do ''disable'' ( say - youtube,-google play music,- google play movies, etc.) .about display set on minimum brightness , and do not use for longer than 15-20 min, uninterruptible .at least once a week power off overnight and when the battery reaches the 20-25% put it on the charger and charging up to 95-98 %--not to 100 %
because that does not count charge cycles, and better working, greeting.

I saved up for it and it's fine. Had it for a year now. The only complaints I have are:
- Battery drains too fast. Seriously, it can't stay for more than 2 and a half hours, luckily I don't use phones very much so this isn't too big of an issue.
- Touch screen is really uncalibrated. I had an alcatel phone before this (no idea what model) and it had a choice to re-calibrate, this one doesn't. You CAN get used to it (I did) but it's still pretty annoying.
- Not for games. ok duh
if you want to play HD games get a tablet or something. I know that this only plays the most basic games but seriously, I didn't buy this to play Asphalt 8.
My first android device, most functions are good but battery too small and touch screen in keyboard mode is unusable, cant find app to recalibrate screen as it is not only wrong but not always the same amount wrong, using browser is not possible and entering passwords,,,,,,,forget it.
Pro : Very good as a phone . Fast processor , beautiful colors of the display , great looking , Flight mode
Cons : The camera takes photos with not real colors !!! The RAM 512MB is way little and sometimes not enough .
Other thoughts : Good choice for the price . As a camera it is awful enough
