Alcatel 7 review: A decent budget phone with one major drawback

Sunday, September 9th, 2018

There aren't very many good budget phones in the United States. There are a few standouts, like the Nokia 6.1 and Moto G6, but most pale in comparison to budget devices sold in Asia and parts of Europe.

Alcatel, a sub-brand of TCL, is somewhat well known in the United States thanks to the hordes of inexpensive phones it sells through prepaid carriers (like MetroPCS and Cricket). The company's phones usually aren't anything special, but the recently-announced Alcatel 7 piqued my interest.

Alcatel 1, the $80 Android Go phone, now available on Amazon

Wednesday, August 29th, 2018

If you need a cheap phone, and we're talking really cheap, then I'm sure that you've probably heard about Android Go and the accompanying ultra-budget phones. The Alcatel 1 just went up for sale on Amazon for a measly $79.99, but that low, low price comes at a cost (heh).

As you might recall, our very own Ryne suffered through using the Alcatel 1X not only for our review, but also to see how life with Android Go is.

Alcatel 1X review: Android Go is a huge compromise in every sense, including price

Friday, June 29th, 2018

Affordable phones will always be a compromise, but Google hopes it can make entry-level devices a bit better with something new: Android Go. It's the same Android platform you know and presumably love, but optimized for sub-1GB RAM environments. That way low-end hardware can have its own low-end version of Android, rather than suffering an OEM debate between shoehorning in the latest version to perform terribly, or an older version which won't be secure or feature-filled.

Upcoming Alcatel 1 Android Go phone is an even more budget-friendly alternative to the 1X

Wednesday, June 27th, 2018

Hot on the heels of the recent Alcatel 1x (review coming later this week), the company has announced another Android Oreo (Go edition) powered device. The new Alcatel 1 drops both the X and the fingerprint reader but hits a lower $89 price. The phone offers a 5" 18:9 "FullView" TCL display in several different colors with a brushed metallic finish, and Android Go should help ensure the lower-end hardware is a bit more performant.

Thursday, May 31st, 2018

Alcatel and TCL have been teasing the 1X since just MWC. It was the first of the Android Go phones to be revealed, but now it looks like it will be the 2nd to hit stateside—following ZTE's Tempo Go, which you can't actually buy anymore. Thankfully, today TCL and Alcatel have just announced that the Alcatel 1X will be landing in the US on Amazon next week, delivering Android Oreo Go edition and an 18:9 display for only $99.

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2018

Alcatel is bringing the budget-friendly 3V to the U.S. next week for an attractive $149 price. This phone has many of the buzzword features, like face unlock and an 18:9 display, and more for that low, low price. It's unlocked and will work on GSM carriers.

Software Android 8.0 Oreo
Display 6" 2160 x 1080
CPU MediaTek MT8735A
Cameras 12MP+2MP rear, 5MP front

The Alcatel 1X with Android Go is coming to the US for under $100

Friday, March 16th, 2018

It's been almost a year since Google unveiled Android Go, now technically known as Android Oreo (Go Edition), but devices you can actually buy are few and far between. In fact, only ZTE has committed to launching a Go device in the US. Now, Alcatel is announcing plans to launch the X1 in the US, too. The phone was shown off at MWC a few weeks ago. The specs are modest, but it'll cost under $100.

Here are all the Android Go phones announced at MWC 2018

Wednesday, February 28th, 2018

Android Go was first introduced by Google at I/O in May 2017, so it's been a long wait for real devices running the slimmed-down Oreo experience. We hoped Mobile World Congress in Barcelona would be when OEMs began launching Android Go phones, and this was confirmed by Google last week.

The first ultra-low-cost phones with 1GB or less of RAM running Android Oreo (Go Edition) have been announced here at MWC.

Alcatel reveals the world’s first Android Go phone

Saturday, February 24th, 2018

Just two days ago, we learned that the first devices running Google's new 'Android Go' platform would be announced next week at Mobile World Congress. Now it appears Alcatel has jumped the gun a bit, and unveiled the world's first Android Go phone alongside a slew of other devices. It's called the 1X, and it's not much different from a typical budget phone, except for the software.

Some of the phone's specifications include a quad-core MediaTek processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB storage, and a 5.3-inch 960x480 display.
