Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good phone My husband and I recently bought a Alcatel One Touch 3 as upgrades from our previous phones. Pro's: -Nice size. I didn't think I would like the 5.5", but I love it. - Speakers are loud. Sound is a deal breaker for me. I need to be able to hear who's on the call on the other end. I like to be able to hear without straining when watching YouTube videos. This phone delivers with sound. - I have my brightness set very low and it's still bright enough for inside or outside without tweaking it. - Wifi works great! Pages load fairly fast without much hesitation. - GPS works great! No problems. - Phone is very light and thin. Waiting on my cover to come in the mail to better protect it. Back is smooth and has a brushed metal look. I don't feel like I'm going to drop it, but I would feel better if it had a protective case. - So far no dropped calls. Sound quality during calls is great! - Love the screen flip feature. Nice to be able to pick up the phone and use it from either end. With speakers and microphones on each end it makes it a dual ended breeze! Cons: Unfortunately there are a few. -Most major con is battery life. With heavy use of Social Media, YouTube and Internet in general I may be able to squeeze 4 hours out of it. For me that's a bit of a bummer, but there are so many other cool features that I will learn to live with it. - This phone's signal isn't as good as the cheaper HTC I gave up also on the Cricket Network. I cant seem to lock in but 2 bars and occasionally get 3 if I hold my head the right way. Lol Still it's enough to get what I need to be done. Just wish I had a little better reception. Of course that has to do with location mostly so can't blame it all on the phone. All-in-all it's a good solid dependable phone. I am pleased with our purchases and hoping they give us at least a year or two good service.
