Tom's Guide

Considering how little you're paying for it, the A30 Plus gets the job done as a budget smartphone, but competitors offer more standout features.

Common Questions


Alcatel released the A30 Plus on July 10, 2017.


The A30 Plus price will vary depending on retailer, age, special offers and whether or not it's purchased with a service plan. If purchased with a 2 year service contract for example, you would likely pay much less for the phone itself up front. You can compare Alcatel A30 Plus prices from around the web here on The Informr.


Alcatel backs up the A30 Plus with a 1 Year parts & labour warranty.


If your A30 Plus has problems and is still within its warranty period, you could contact Alcatel support or the retailer you purchased the phone from. You'll find Alcatel's contact information here. If your phone is off warranty and needs repair for a physical problem such as a broken screen or bad battery, you should visit an authorized service centre or a local phone repair shop. You can also connect with others in The Informr Community Forum to find and share answers to questions.

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.
