  A little bit slow...

| | See all HPsauceman's reviews (1)

Right, you've already heard pretty much all the good stuff, so here comes the downer:
It's terribly slow when it comes to typing, keyboard or pad. I, like many overs, usually type messages with great speed on any normal phone, but it can take up to 5 minutes with this slow response phone.
Another point is how slow, and unplayable the games are. I tried downloading guitar hero 4, but it took over 10 minutes to get to actually Playing a song, so I just gave up every time I played it. It's impossible to play any games on it.
The video factor isn't pleasing either. I recorded a 30 second clip on the phone, and played it back, on the phone. The audio was fine, as you'd expect, but the video only changed image every half second or so.
I regret buying this phone, for even with all the good features, like the fact this cheap phone has a touch screen, the bad features greatly outweigh the good.

  Great phone at a great price.

I have had this phone for a little over a week, I have found it to be great for battery life and am enjoying the touch screen although I have to use the stylis as my fingers are too big.

I only have a few issues, first that the camera does not have a flash as it makes the pictures quite dark, second that the touch screen does not seem to lock after 20 seconds as it should and so when it gets knocked in my pocket it will phone someone or continuously set the alarm for MIDNIGHT!!! which can get quite annoying.

However aside from those two issues this phone is well worth the price and the one I got sent is black and silver as opposed the black and green one I saw in the shops which looks much better.

I am very happy with this phone and would certainly reccomend it to anyone and did not have any problems inserting the memory card.

Unbelievable value, phone does everything but fly. Have not come to grips with all its features yet but having lots of fun trying. If you want a touch screen phone at a giveaway price, buy this one, you wont regret it.

  It's Worth Double The Price

i bought this to replace my samsung j700 and to be honest the alcatel is 2 times better than the samsung which cost me 60 pound. this phone is all round better and has the reviewer below stated the mem card does fit inside the phone next to sim card but i see it as, you can't lose the mem card which is a plus in my view and you get the weather app which is pretty cool. the 10 pound credit is not by an orange voucher but it's by a voucher which you can use either by the net or phone and i recieved mine within 48 hours.

don't let the price put you off!

  card slot

good phone card slot not on the out side like u would expect but next to the sim card slot, witch is rather tricky to fit the card into.
