Alcatel OT-380 blue Mobile Phone Review

Category : Alcatel, Mobile Phones

The Alcatel OT-380 Mobile Phone is a compact and light weight handset with a funky design. Despite the fact this is a budget mobile and it measures just 91mm x 45mm x 19.2 mm and weighs in at just 90g. This is a true multimedia phone which supports all the main functions required by modern mobile users in spite of the incredibly low price. Working on dual band GSM network with a 1.8 inch TFT display with a pretty basic resolution of 128 x 160 pixels. Never the less, the screen is useful and clear displaying up to 65,000 colours.

The illuminating (blue) numeric keypad is also responsive with a positive action making it easy to use for basic texting or even photo messaging. Polyphonic and mp3 ring tones are supported and their is even a rudimentary 0.3 megapixel camera with resolution of 640×480 pixels and digital zoom. A built-in music player allows you to playback mp3, WMA and eAAC+ file formats and there is even a Stereo FM radio tuner with RDS.

Connectivity on the Alcatel OT-380 blue is pretty decent with GPRS, Bluetooth and miniUSB interface available. Battery life is good with 350 hours in standby mode and up to 7 hours of talk time. The retail pack includes 650maH battery, charger, single earphone, miniUSB cable and straightforward user manual.

Advantages: The Alcatel OT-380 has amazing looks for what is essentially a bargain basement mobile phone with the funky blue colour display sitting above a blue backlit navigation key and luminous slide down keypad. Just a few short years ago this would have been considered a top of the range device which shows how fast mobile technology is moving forward. Everything is simple to use on this phone and the amount of features included at this price level is astounding.

Disadvantages: No 3g or WiFi, very basic camera on board, earphone supplied in retail pack is rudimentary to say the least. WAP Internet Browser is also basic but lets face it at this price the fact this phone is even capable of browsing the web is a bonus!

With the exception of some high tech features like 3G and WiFi, the Alcatel OT-380 blue provides a wide range of useful features in addition to the basic functions of calling and texting at a very reasonable price indeed on T-mobile, Orange and Vodafone!
