The budget friendly phablet is finally here by Alcatel in Pakistan. Alcatel A3 XL is an amazing phablet by Alcatel launched in 2017. It comes with a huge screen and amazing battery life but of course the low priced phone will have some trade-off. In this case the compromise is done on the display resolution, average quality front camera and an above average performance. But overall, Alcatel A3 XL has to offer more than what the user will pay.

Alcatel A3 XL Price in Pakistan

Alcatel mobiles can easily be purchased online as well as instore in Pakistan. There are many online stores that sell Alcatel but their prices might be slightly different and some may offer warranty while other may not. Similar is the case with in stores where you can also get good warranty claims. Alcatel A3 XL price at launch was $179. Pakistanis have to face a slight issue of varying prices because of the absence of any official Alcatel store in Pakistan. The average price in Pakistan is Rs.20,000.

Alcatel A3 XL Features

Alcatel A3 XL has much more to offer as compared to the Alcatel A3 XL price. This phablet is decent looking with a performance that can be rated a 7 out of 10.

Under the hood

This phablet although was expected to have some strong and powerful processor but sadly Alcatel did not meet its customers expectation. The device is powered by Mediatek MT 8735B chipset with a quad-core processor that has mere clocking speed of 1.3 GHz which is I would consider as below average for a mid-ranged phone. The graphics are also supported by an average processor. The performance of the mobile is however, acceptable by the majority without much issues except a few lags, stutters and hanging incidents. I guess this performance can be acceptable for the cost of the phone.

Design

Alcatel has yet again managed to produce a good looking “near to premium look” phone with two color variations and a contrasting round edge finish. It certainly does not have the looks of a low budget mobile. The rear cover is textured and is equipped with a finger print scanner. Now this is something worth the money. You won’t expect unlocking your phone in seconds with a fingerprint scanner in such a low budget phone. It has a huge 6 inches display with capactive android buttons at the end of the screen.

Display

Alcatel A3 XL features a huge 6 inches IPS capacitive touchscreen; the size is a plus for the phone. The resolution is however, disappointing for its users with just a 720 x 1080 pixels resolution which you usually get in low budget small sized phone. But still, the screen is acceptable and decent enough to carry out normal use even in daylight. One can fairly enjoy videos and games on the huge screen.

Powerful battery

Alcatel A3 XL comes with huge battery back-up i.e. 3000 mAh which is enough to run videos for 9 hours long, isn’t this just the best thing. A powerful and usable mobile is judged by the battery life it has. One cannot just keep on charging the mobile; the battery must be strong enough to at least support a day’s usage and Alcatel has managed to meet more than the user’s expectations.
