Review of "Alcatel OT-S319"
Having used the phone for a while I have found to be easy to use, with good battery talktime (I usually only need to charge it twice a week) and excellent reception. It is also suprisingly robust and the hard outer case shows no signs of damage despite being dropped several times already.
When my mobile inexplicably and frustratingly stopped working a few months ago, I decided to purchase the Alcatel OT-S319 as a budget -buy replacement . The Alcatel phone was one of the cheapest on offer, priced at just £15 in my local argos. The handset is a small, compact and modern looking "clam-shell" design and is available in either pink or black. This is a very basic ohone with only the 'essentials' in terms of features. It provides predictive texting, 2 games, 10 ringtones, a 300 capacity address book and good range of embedded images and animations for wallpaper/screen saver displays.
There are a few things I find irritating about this phone however. The processing of sending a text is unecessarily complex and long winded (too many steps and button presses!) and I wish the "silent" setting was more easily accessable. I also find that the phone takes ages to switch on but maybe that is just me being impatient!Overall, this a good quality, nicely designed, "no frills" phone which provides excellent value for money and is perfect as a first phone for a child, or for the discerning shopper on a budget.
