Solid network connectivity and a big screen for a reasonable price

from PC Magazine

The Alcatel A30 Plus is an inexpensive Amazon-exclusive phone with a big, bright screen and good network connectivity, but its performance leaves something to be desired.

Tom's Guide

A blah budget phone

from Tom's Guide

The A30 Plus isn't offensively flawed in any way, but when the competition is pushing more value across the board, it becomes much harder to recommend this phone. For the same price as the unlocked A30 Plus, you can have the Moto E4, which we prefer for its fingerprint sensor, more vibrant display, better software experience and tasteful design.
