The best budget phone you can get!

meto402 has owned it for less than year before publishing this review

This is one of the best budget phones you could get these days!
It runs buttery smooth most of the times and has a nice and stylish for alcatel UI.
Also the CPU is very fast for it's class and can compete against most low-mid end phones!
The phone is very good for gaming, but one of the things I didn't like is the low ram. If you launch a lot of things on the phone then all the games you start will self close until you restart the phone. Also the camera is great, you can record 720p videos in 30 FPS which look very nice. The overall performance of the phone is great but I'm switching to a better phone (LG G2) but I will remember this phone! 9.0/10!
