What the Critics Are Saying...


Techaeris

The Alcatel Onyx is a decent device. The form factor and the screen size together is great and easy to hold in hand. The battery life is another plus as it’ll get you through the workday for users and it’ll be great as a backup device or for a child who will be getting their first phone.

- Kyle Funk, Techaeris
TechRadar

If you’re looking for an all-round accomplished smartphone for $120/£100, we’re tempted to say that it doesn’t exist (yet). At the very least, the Alcatel 1X isn’t that phone, thanks to terrible performance and a substandard camera.
