Editors Liked

  • The large 18:9 display is bright and vivid, Apps open fairly quickly, and the 2GB RAM is adequate. Animations aren't very smooth, but that's true of most budget phones, You get a mostly stock build of Android 8.1 Oreo, MicroUSB is still the norm for sub-$
  • Low pric, Long-lasting battery
  • Decent price, Decent performance, Great battery life

Editors Didn't Like

  • The glossy back casing attracts fingerprints and smudges, and it scratches fairly easily, Photos taken on the Alcatel 7 are not very good, and the camera application is laggy, You can only buy this on MetroPCS
  • Lots of bloatwar, Sluggish performanc, Cheap design
  • Average camera, Uncertainty about future Android updates
