When you hear that a smartphone has a 6-inch display, you are not likely to think of a budget device. But Alcatel wants to change that. The new Alcatel A3 XL is a budget smartphone and has a big 6-inch display. XL for extra large. Display size apart, everything else about it screams “Budget!” There’s a quad-core 1.1 GHz processor. There is 1 GB of RAM. You get the picture. Even the price yells “Budget!” too. Check out the full Alcatel A3 XL specifications below.

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.
