Alcatel OneTouch 10.16G review

 Review: March 2016  
 

Rating: 3 stars

In a nutshell: The Alcatel OneTouch 10.16G is a dirt-cheap old-style phone with an alphanumeric keypad. It has no camera, but can call and text, has a radio, and quadband GSM compatibility. Battery life is very weak however.



 

Review

They don't make phones like they used to, eh? Wait, it turns out that they do! Alcatel's retro-style One Touch 1016G rewinds the clock 10 years to when phones were bricks, and did what phones were meant to do - make calls and send texts.

One thing that has changed since those days though is the price. The OneTouch 1016G costs virtually nothing. You can't really argue with that.

The 1016G is a classic feature phone with a tiny 1.8 inch screen, an alphanumeric keypad and a chunky body. There's no camera, but it does have a radio and a voice recorder. It's unbelievably light in weight compared with modern phones.

The phone runs on GSM networks only, but has quadband compatibility, so you should be able to take it anywhere.

The battery has a tiny 400mAh capacity, that will last for 6 days on standby, but not very long if you make calls.The phone accepts a standard-size sim card.

There's not much more to say about this phone. Buy it as an emergency phone, or one to take to a festival. Alternatives include the Nokia 130, which has better battery life, or the Nokia 225, which includes a basic camera.
