Expert Review

Of the three mobiles which were announced by Alcatel at the recent Mobile World Congress, the Alcatel A3 bags the top position for its advanced features compared to the other two; Alcatel A5 LED and Alcatel U5. The Alcatel A3 release date in India, according to the reports, will be April 20, 2017. Let’s go into the details about Alcatel A3…

What’s hot:

What’s not:

1.5GB RAM, 2460 mAh battery

Processor:

The Alcatel A3 packs a MediaTek MT6737 Quad-core 1.25 GHz processor, which is better when compared to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 MSM8937. Although, it does not support DirectX 11.2, it’s compatible with DirectX 11. The Mali-T720 MP2 Graphics Processor Unit along with a 1.5GB RAM and Cortex A53 architecture just comes out as a decent platform to play games at reasonable quality. The phone runs on Android v6.0 (Marshmallow).

Camera:

The Alcatel A3 sports a 13MP primary camera with image resolution of 4128x3096p and a 5MP secondary one. The front camera has LED flash whereas the rear camera features LED flash with autofocus and 2.0F aperture. The camera features also include Continuous Shooting, HDR mode, Auto flash, face detection, and touch to focus.

Battery:

The Alcatel A3 comes with a removable Li-ion battery with the capacity of 2460 mAh. And the A3 does not support Quick Charging.

Design and Display:

With the dimensions around 142x70.5x8.6mm, the Alcatel A3 packs a 5-inch IPS LCD display with the screen resolution of 720x1280p. The pixel density of the phone is 294 ppi when compared to its sibling Alctael A5’s 282 ppi. The capacitive multi-touch screen has a screen to body ratio of 68.68%. The company claims that with the Alcatel A3’s rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, users can assign five different apps to five fingers.

Storage:

The Alcatel A3 comes with 1.5GB RAM and 16GB internal memory which can be expandable up to 32GB with the help of a MicroSD card. And it does not support USB OTG (On The Go) feature.

Miscellaneous:

The Alcatel A3 features also include an accelerometer, a proximity sensor, and a compass. The Alcatel A3 price in India is expected to be around Rs 8000.

Verdict:

Go for it, if all you care about is a good performance, fingerprint scanning feature, and nothing else. The likes of Meizu M3s and Coolpad Note 3 also offer a better set of features.
