The Alcatel A3 is our primary focus for the day; the smartphone commands a price-tag of around 16,000 rupees while it was launched in late-April 2017.
An entirely plastic body plus a good display
Unsurprisingly, the smartphone is predominantly plastic with a textured back panel. A metal frame slides between the front and back panels and we can’t help but easily spot the A3 trying its best to mimic the Nexus 5X from the front. 8.6mm width anyone? If not, you’ll be happy to find a 5.0 inches IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen somewhere in the A3 with a 720p resolution.
Admirable camera sensors
The Alcatel A3’s strongest points are probably its two camera sensors; the primary camera shelters a 13 megapixel sensor with an LED flash and features that include geo-tagging, panorama, HDR touch-focus etc. and the secondary sensor features 5 megapixels worth of muscle with a dedicated LED flash of its own. How great is that?
Could’ve had more muscle in the performance section
A quad-core processor with 1.5 gigs of RAM is by no means adequate for the built-in Android Marshmallow. 16 gigs of internal storage and a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner are welcome features which is just about enough the Alcatel A3 can afford to cater for now.
