Get yourself £20 off your shopping if you’re on Tesco Mobile

If you are a current or prospective customer of Tesco Mobile, listen up. They seem to be pushing hard (and, by that, I mean that they’re emailing me a lot) to promote their network and are now dishing up extra Clubcard points on selected mobile phones. If you …

Alcatel POP 4 6″ – Review

Immediately out of the box that screen hits both sides of the frame, and it makes the phone 160.9 x 81.5 x 7.95 mm. The screen is 1080 x 1920 pixels at 367 ppi and, although large, it doesn’t feel overly cumbersome even with that 6″ screen. When …

MWC – THAT new BlackBerry. Hands-on with the KEYone

This was tucked away around the back of the Alcatel stand but there was no shortage in interest. It’s a bit of a heavy thing at 180g and we’ve already posted a BlackBerry KEYone gallery after it leaked all over the place last Saturday morning. This one is …

MWC – Hands-on with the Alcatel A3

Available in May, this will cost you €149 (£127.74) in either black or white. It’s another phone from TCL and this is a pretty entry-level affair. The Alcatel A3 actually has a higher resolution camera than its bigger brother, the A5 LED. Here you’ll get a 13 megapixel …

MWC – Alcatel goes back to the old days with the A5 LED

Standing out from the crowd here in Barcelona is particularly difficult. I’m not talking about the stands, because it’s already tricky enough in that respect. Money (a lot of it, think millions of pounds) buys you big floor space and a bigger impact. Some companies resort to sweets, …

A phone and a contract for just £6 per month

Fancy a phone and a 4G contract for just £6 per month? Check this offer out from iD Mobile. They already do SIM only plans from just £4 per month and sure, that’s only 250MB of data, but for another £2 per month you can get a phone …

Alcatel One Touch Idol 3 5.5 – Review

Something I have been seeing across the industry right now is an emergence of lots of low price flagship challengers. These come from various sources, with the most prominent of these being China. Now, the inherent problem with buying from China is what then happens when it goes …

Alcatel OneTouch are going to flip you with the Idol 3

I’m going to write this post in a slightly different way. This is a direct message to Alcatel OneTouch, and you can all read it. Now, I’m a lucky boy. I get to travel to places like Barcelona and see all the latest gadgets get launched during Mobile …

Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 5.5″ Unboxing

Time for another unboxing and it is another mid-tier champ. This time from the boys and girls at Alcatel. Wait did I just say Alcatel? Surely they don’t have anything that I as a Coolsmartphone reader would be interested in? Well let me show you what we have …

Alcatel OneTouch PIXI 3 (4) now available on O2

It’s been just a couple of weeks since we told you about the cheap and cheerful PIXI 3. This is the PIXI 3 (4) version, which basically means you’re getting a 4″ 480×800 pixel screen at 233 PPI. The phone is also available with a slightly smaller 3.5″ …

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 …

Alcatel Onetouch Pop 2 4.5 4G – Review

The budget phone market is big business these days, with everyone competing to be the “go to” budget device, one big seller these days is 4G and getting 4G on a device at under £100 is a good thing. I’ve been using the Pop 2 for a few weeks …

Alcatel Onetouch Pop D5 – Review

Alcatel have a wide range of devices and keeping up with exactly where each model sits in the range is at times a struggle, when I visited their stand at MWC it took me five minutes to gather myself and work out what was what. Alcatel have sent …

Alcatel POP C1 – A near throw-away Android smartphone

If you’re tired of having to pay £500, £600 or even £700 for a smartphone, there are options way down at the other end of the scale. This, the Alcatel POP C1, is available on play.com rakuten.co.uk for less than £30 at the moment. Likewise, you can head …

MWC – My top 3 things (James)

2015 was my first year of attending MWC. I really had no idea what to expect, Leigh and Dan have spent years going and covering a huge range of devices. This year was going to be no different, Garry, Leigh and I all arrived on the Saturday ready …

CES – Alcatel announce new phones and tablet

Along with a new smartwatch Alcatel also announced a new tablet and a range of phones. The POP 10 is, surprisingly enough, a 10″ tablet that features an IPS display and is powered by a quad-core processor. Storage wise there is 8GB internal memory, a 5 MP rear camera …

CES – Alcatel announce iOS/ Android smartwatch

Yes, it’s me again with yet another smartwatch announcement. This time at least it’s from a phone manufacturer rather than a watch maker, Alcatel I choose you. The new Alcatel Watch, yes seriously that is its name, features a round display with a semi-functional outer ring and then …
