The Alcatel A3 XL is no phone for the power user. What we have here is a big smartphone with a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, low screen resolution, low processing power, low RAM, low internal storage, and a fairly good battery at a nice price point. The Alcatel A3 XL is a smartphone for those who like it big but have not so big budgets. It looks like a good compromise.
