The Alcatel 1X was the first Android Go phone to launch in the USA, and it’s now available in India. But will your version have a fingerprint reader? Dual SIM? That depends..

    TCL is horrible at software support. I have an Alcatel Idol 4. They promised Android 7.0 a year ago. It's still running Android 6.0. With adware built in. Great hardware, absolutely horrendous software.

    @4:10 – I will never understand foil hats. Why would you want to wrap your head in something that, like with TV and radio antennas, amplifies the signal from the Conspiracy's mind control satellites? 😛

    The Alcatel 3C seems a lot better choice, it's 80€ on Amazon and it has a better SoC and a 720p display

    Remember when 100$ was a lot of money now you can barely get something for it

    I am glad I live in India when it comes to smartphone selections. We have an insane variety here for prices here, even lesser than $99!

    I'm quite fond of my ZTE blade v8 pro, which if memory serves I got for ~$150 on newegg, but then got a price drop later on Amazon when my girlfriend got hers:

    Packs quite a punch technically speaking, which is all I really wanted so that I could run a variety of games without shit performance.

    For two years, I had a R1HD (look it up). This device had much better specs and had a good size screen. All for the affordable price of $60!!! Although I since upgraded, this phone suited me well for the time being. The point is, is that there are better options out there if you're willing to look for them.

    I paid $100 incl. delivery from China for my Honor 7C and honestly I couldn't be happier. It has literally every feature I need, and more. I never play games on my phone so why invest any more than what I did? Spec-wise the 7C is FAR better than the Alcatel one though.

    Lg has some killer phones for below that range that I more highly recommend. The artisto in general is faster with a better screen but you do have to deal with lgs changes to the ui but all phones I get no matter what brand I change the basics to fit my needs but MetroPCS now metro by " the company that stole our idea and pricing model that changed the way people paid for cellphones (side rant.. Metro could have bought T-Mobile in short time hence the great deal in the merger). There's much better phones in this range then shown here
