Reviews summary

6/10 AVG.
RATING

Based on 12 reviews

With it’s 3.5-inch touchscreen display, 2 megapixel camera and a range of apps and services, the Alcatel 3040 is an affordable pay-as-you-go device that attempts to emulate the latest smartphone technology.

While the 260-mhz processor and 128MB of RAM won’t allow for multitasking or other processor intensive tasks, reviews from Usapang Tekno claim that the device works well and is responsive for basic features, such as emailing, texting or checking on your social media accounts.

The screen on the phone features a 320-by-480 pixel resolution. While this is enough for daily use, it’s far from HD. However, reviews state that text is clear and the screen is bright. For added flexibility, a dual-sim model, the 3040D, is available in some markets. A single three-hour charge is stated to yield 8 hours of talk time, 17 hours of music playback and nearly three weeks of standby time.

While the phone is not a cutting edge device, it’s not priced as one. For a starter smartphone, or as a backup for your newer device, the price makes the phone a respectable bargain.

The Good: Affordable pricing, exceptional battery life and support for memory cards.

The Bad: Weak processor, low-resolution display, limited app support and low-resolution camera.

Dreadful phone

(about 1 year ago)

Inbuilt browser doesn't work, downloaded Opera, but you can't add to the display, so have to go through 4 screens to start it. No loaded games. 'Keys' are far too small for accurate texting. No in-call volume control. Standard ringtones are frighteningly bad, ascending ring doesn't... More
