Alcatel 3X Review – Dual Rear Cameras On The EIS Diet

Alcatel 3X is one of the three Alcatel 3-series smartphones recently announced by TCL. Following rumors and leaks about the Alcatel 3-series smartphones, we now have for ourselves confirmation from the smartphone OEM itself. This smartphone is the second best amidst the three 3-series smartphones released by TCL. Its large 5.7-inch screen, large although variable RAM and large also variable storage are examples of its second nature. Now, let’s get down to the full specs of the Alcatel 3X.

Design & Display

The smartphone sports the plastic material with either a glossy finish or a metallic finish, well, that depends on the market. Around the back, two cameras are located with a dual tone LED flash, fingerprint scanner and alcatel logo. At the front, there is the front camera, earpiece, light sensor and a LED flash at the top bezel while the thin bottom bezel lacks any occupant. Soft Android navigation keys appear on the screen. It is noteworthy that the smartphone’s bezel-less display and the 2.5D curved glass makes the device appealing. The dimensions of the device are 153.5 mm length x 71.6 mm breadth x 8.5 mm thickness while the weight isn’t much as it pegs 144 g. Colors of the device are Black, Blue and Gold just like the Alcatel 3.

The display has a 5.7-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with an HD+ resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels. Alcatel 3X’s screen clarity is expressed by the resolution and 282 PPI pixel density. Its aspect ratio is 18:9 and its screen-to-body ratio is 76%. Features such as multi-touch input, 2.5D curved glass and 16 million display colors are supported on the display.


Alcatel 3X uses a dual rear camera setup of 13 MP and 5 MP qualities to capture images. This dual camera setup has a dual tone LED flashsu support it uses to brighten images taken in low light conditions. EIS (Electronic Image Stabilization) feature is present; it minimizes the blurring that could occur due to minimal shaking while using the camera. 78-degree wide angle lens and f/2.0 aperture are features that make the camera take note solid images. At the fore, a 5 megapixel camera is at hand to snap the selfies. Supporting the camera is the LED flash and the 120-degree wide angle lens.

CPU, OS & Storage

For multitasking, it has two variants – 2 GB / 3 GB while for its storage, it has 16 GB / 32 GB variants that can be expanded using a MicroSD card.
