Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

My smartphone, no doubt, has to efficiently performs professional functions such as Document Viewer, Pushmail, which Alcatel OT890 does well. 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 2.8 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. I am mostly traveling around and even if it is in known streets, I prefer having my GPS navigation guiding me along, in case of traffic or diversions.

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 OT890 is. Video recording is a must on my phone, I just love recording and capturing the innocence of cake cutting or the craziness of a dinner party. I won't worry about the other features in the Alcatel OT890 as the camera is so average and a strong deterrent for me. This phone features a very nice storage for all my images, videos and music as I hardly have to delete anything due to storage issues. I always feel the more the better when it comes to smartphone storage and I would always chose the Alcatel OT890 with expandable memory against any other smartphones that are overpriced and overloaded with confusing features.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

As a smartphone, the screen size of the Alcatel OT890 is quite decent; but too tiny when it comes to gaming or reading. Reading is still fine, but gaming on a 0.42 GHz smartphone is really dreadful. The 150 GB internal storage of the Alcatel OT890 is really meant for me and my ever-growing ebook and gaming collection. 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 OT890 doesn't live up to it.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

For me the 2.8 inches display is the first thing I noticed in the Alcatel OT890. I love texting and all my friends too prefer texting over talking, so I find the screen size of the Alcatel OT890 very cramped. Yes, 2 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. My smartphone should do a lot of things simultaneously and not just basic messaging, emails and browsing. And the 2G network is too slow to do anything more than that. I can now travel to almost any new place or location with the built-in GPS and it is great help during various emergencies, traffic updates or navigation issues. 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. I love the Alcatel OT890 where I hardly delete photos and videos due to storage issues. Plus I even carry around my entire music library. My smartphone is my world and it easily carries around my numerous group pics, videos with friends, my favourite YouTube videos, music, books, social networking apps and much more.
