Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

If there is one thing absolutely vital in my smartphone apart from great call management, is it being able to download and edit most email attachments; and much more such as Document Viewer, Pushmail present in this device. No point fidgeting with a screen that poses real difficulty both while watching videos and typing on the cramped keyboard, the portability that is offered by the smaller screen seems futile against the little value it offers with respect to functionality. I primarily rely on phone for emails and calls which are extremely frequent; so such a meagre battery really doesn't cut it for me. Not an hour goes by without my phone ringing, that's why I always go for something like the Alcatel OT 990 that has all the advanced features to ease the communication. Although I am not so much into file sharing via Bluetooth as I am more of an email guy, but it is quite essential for hands-free calling. I am constantly on the move, even if most of the travel routes are familiar, the GPS navigation in the Alcatel OT 990 is quite reliable and reassuring.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

I hate typing messages on the Alcatel OT 990 with its tiny keypad as I misspell a single word more than 3 times. Video recording is fun and lets me record all beautiful memories of birthday parties and the energy and excitement of a house party. A smartphone without a good camera is really not my choice, even if the Alcatel OT 990 sports other excellent features and fairly makes up. It features enough space for all music, videos and images so that I don't have to delete anything. I always feel the more the better when it comes to smartphone storage and I would always chose the Alcatel OT 990 with expandable memory against any other smartphones that are overpriced and overloaded with confusing features.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

The 3.5 inch display may be quite decent for a smartphone but I don't like it for my reading or gaming purpose. Gaming is really a turn off on this 0.6 GHz smartphone; reading is still bearable. I can download and save all my cool and graphic-heavy games with the 200 GB internal storage of this smartphone and still have enough room for my ebooks and apps. If you have gaming and ebook library as huge as mine, you can never say no to an extendable memory storage. I can't deal with battery warning just within a couple of hours into my gaming session; the Alcatel OT 990 is quite frustrating in this matter.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

The first thing I noticed in the Alcatel OT 990 was its 3.5 inches display. The screen size of the Alcatel OT 990 is too cramped and so I can't text that easily on this screen size. The Yes, 5 MP camera resolution is not that cool. You can easily opt for any other smartphone with a better camera, it might even be cheaper. I don't think this smartphone can click awesome pictures, which by the way is my favourite hobby. Recently, I can't imagine life without selfies, and hence the secondary camera. Clicking selfies and groupies is a favourite pastime for me and my friends. It's sometimes difficult to click selfies and groupies with the main camera, so always go for smartphones with good secondary camera. I'd like my smartphone to do all my tasks simultaneously not just perform basic functions like browsing, messaging and emails. And I won't depend upon 2G networks for that. I keep checking the GPS for new locations and traffic updates. The USB connector lets me charge my phone even with my laptop and transfer files. The Alcatel OT 990 never makes me delete videos and photos because of storage issues. I have my entire music library on my smartphone. All my amazing pics, videos, music, apps and books easily fit in my smartphone.
