What's good

  • Cheap price
  • Acceptable touchscreen size and resolution
  • Average battery life

What's bad

  • Fixed focus-only camera
  • Lacks 4G LTE

The Alcatel One Touch Evolve is a modestly priced phone offering all you would expect from a basic device including a large touchscreen display, dual-cameras, and long battery life. Unfortunately the screen is apparently nowhere near brilliant, the camera is a letdown, and the processor is disappointing. Cnet's Sarah Mitroff even went as far as to say that, "There is nothing evolved about the Alcatel One Touch Evolve."

The overall sentiment of reviewers about this phone is that it simply isn't worth it, even at its low price. If you truly can't be bothered to spend any more money on a phone, then perhaps you could live with all of its apparent shortcomings. But if your budget allows for a little wiggle room, you might do well to listen to LAPTOP Magazine: "it's worth spending more for something better."

Underpowered phone isn't worth the low cost

from Cnet (about 1 year ago)

There is nothing evolved about the Alcatel One Touch Evolve. That's largely due to the fact that Alcatel had to make trade-offs when making this entry-level budget phone, and couldn't include the newest and best specs. For its price, I wasn't expecting a quad-core processor, outstanding camera, or brilliant... More

Hate it, slowest phone I have ever owned.

(26 days ago)

Turns off on it's own, restarts, and freezes. If I have more than 2 Apps it slows down even more than it already does.. Have almost smashed it plenty of times over anger. Not for people with little patience.

Good starter phone / Personal Device assistant (PDA)

(3 months ago)

A good starter phone for the price & somebody not computer savvy. I've been looking for a inexpensive phone to learn some of the more sophisticated features that one would find on other smart phones. For the price, this is a good start. The functional layout is intuitive as are the menus. I... More
