A £20 smartphone. The Pixi 3 from Alcatel OneTouch
If you’re scared by words such as “petite” and “entry level” then you need to stop reading now. This is aimed squarely at those feature-phone customers who just want a cheap and cheerful handset that’ll make calls and perhaps do the odd bit of browsing on the rather small and low-res 3.5″ HVGA (320×480) display.

Don’t forget though, this is just £20, and you can pick it up at your local Sainsbury’s with your food shopping or via phoneshopbysainsburys.co.uk.


It’s got a 2 megapixel camera and runs Android KitKat though, so despite the low price you’re still going to get your Facebook, WhatsApp and Twitter fix because all these apps are pre-installed

Specs aren’t really going to be your main reason for buying this. However, if you really need to know there’s a dual core 1GHz processor, 3G connectivity, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and a microSD card slot for 32GB extra storage (although the press release below says 32MB, which we presume / hope is wrong).

It’s a diddy 112.2 x 62 x 11.8mm and has 4GB of onboard storage (1.9GB is actually available to you, so get a microSD card) plus 512MB RAM with a 1300mAh battery.
