A 4G-enabled £59 smartphone that also offers expandable storage

from Expert Reviews
Despite its shortcomings, the Pixi 4 (5) isn’t awful and for £59 it’s ludicrously cheap for a 5in 4G-enabled smartphone. Performance is respectable for basic tasks, and screen is fine, too... Full review

Decent build quality, sluggish overall performance

from NDTV
This is a fairly modern entry-level phone as you get Android Marshmallow and 4G VoLTE support. However, be prepared for below-average app and camera performance. The Pixi 4 would have been a good option had Alcatel fitted slightly better hardware inside... Full review

Let down on so many occasions.

I have had this phone since August 2016, and cannot count the number of times the phone has failed to connect me to mobile internet.

I have had this phone since August 2016, and cannot count the number of times the phone has failed to connect me to mobile internet.

At first I thought it was maybe an issue with the SP, and our area being out in the sticks in a hilly area. However I was away from home yesterday and the day before, and the same issue cropped up.

I went into the local SPs shop and explained the problem to them. The gentlemen there ran three diagnostic tests on the phone, and found that the problem was in the handset, not with the network. As the problem couldn't be fixed immediately and I needed my phone for work, I purchased another ( much cheaper) handset that has so  far connected me to the internet every time of asking. Fab!!!

Another issue I found with the 5010x was that the battery had only about 60 minutes of use before the it had to be recharged. Also, the standby time was about four hours.

Clearly these issues lay with my handset, and it may be the only dud in the whole batch.
