Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

A small device like this might neatly fit in my pockets, but that's all it can and nothing much with the cramped screen size of 1.8 inches. With my kind of usage and lifestyle neither will the battery last me decent hours, nor can I provide it with charging as and when needed. I more than often go for efficient devices like the as it present me with a robust call management; as I am hardly ever off my phone. Bluetooth in my smartphone is essential more for hands-free calling than file sharing.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

It looks really small and comfortable for carrying, but I can't type without misspelling the words at least 3-4 times, that's how uncomfortable using this Alcatel OT 517 D is. I won't worry about the other features in the Alcatel OT 517 D as the camera is so average and a strong deterrent for me. The expandable memory of the Alcatel OT 517 D is a good option for me as against the high priced smartphones which come with high internal memory.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

As a smartphone, the screen size of the Alcatel OT 517 D is quite decent; but too tiny when it comes to gaming or reading. Extendable memory is always a great storage backup if you have a growing collection of ebooks, games and apps. I'd like my smartphone battery to at least last me an intensive gaming session that goes on for 3-4 hours without battery warnings; the Alcatel OT 517 D doesn't live up to it.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

For me the 1.8 inches display is the first thing I noticed in the Alcatel OT 517 D. I love texting and all my friends too prefer texting over talking, so I find the screen size of the Alcatel OT 517 D very cramped. Yes MP is not that great camera resolution. There are so many smartphones with better megapixels sometimes even cheaper than this phone. I love clicking pictures with my smartphone and this one doesn't seem up for it. I always forget charging my phone so USB charging via my laptop is really a good option for me and sometimes I even use this port to transfer music and images.
