Alcatel 3 Specifications Price USA UK India and Nigeria

Another one from Alcatel is the 3 Series they’ve been releasing of lately frankly speaking i decided to write about the Alcatel 3 Variant as they all share similar specs and features. Other variants are Alcatel  3C, Alcatel 3V and Alcatel 3X, with all of them having the Alcatel face unlock technology and falls within the midrange price tag device. Lets dig into the spec sheet;

Alcatel 3 Key Specs and Features

The Alcatel 3 doesn’t have that premium sleek looking the device am afraid, instead the device was build with a somewhat sturdy basic build. It has round edges and a somewhat bloated look with the camera, flash and fingerprint arranged vertically from up to down in that order.

The Alcatel 3 rocks an 18:9 aspect ratio HD+ LCD screen in the display department. In comparison with the better display options available at the moment this is quite low on crisp colour reproduction. That being said, the smartphone sports a 5.5-inches 1440 X 720 pixels display with a pixel density of (293 ppi). The viewing angles indoors are great but outdoors not so great but then again its a midrange smartphone with mid features.
