Google Assistant and Maps make this a capable, modern flip phone

from ZDNet

Several years ago, flip phones were all the rage and it was tough to beat the feeling of flipping the lid closed to end a call. Alcatel's latest model brings modern software elements, including Google Assistant, and make this an excellent backup phone or one for those who don't want to mess around with a large glass display.

Because flip phones don't have to be dumb

from Android Guys

The nostalgia of this phone is undeniable; however it’s built for a certain user base that Alcatel stills sees as viable in today’s market. I enjoyed my time with this device and would easily recommend this to my parents who will never fully use a smartphone.
