A mixed bag budget smartphone

The Alcatel Onyx is a decent device. The form factor and the screen size together is great and easy to hold in hand. The battery life is another plus as it’ll get you through the workday for users and it’ll be great as a backup device or for a child who will be getting their first phone.

Its cheap and cheerful appeal is critically hobbled by terrible performance

from TechRadar

If you’re looking for an all-round accomplished smartphone for $120/£100, we’re tempted to say that it doesn’t exist (yet). At the very least, the Alcatel 1X isn’t that phone, thanks to terrible performance and a substandard camera.

1st   --Alcatel---screen does not light up at 100%   even though Display it is set at 100%

Somehow $70 in extra billings is on a phone that does not work properly-- which I believe dials  automatically any number in Contact

--$ 10  charge on a refunded manual -guide--- reason not clear
