Alcatel Pixi 3 is all yours at only Ksh.1500 – Jumia Kenya. The country’s leading online vendor has offers running between 3rd and 9th, this month, and they are giving different items at incredible discounts.
One of the items on offer is smartphones. The store is giving a lot of them, from flagships like Samsung S8 to entry levels like Alcatel Pixi 3, at unbelievable prices. Normally, the Pixi 3 sells at Ksh. 2500, which means Jumia is scrapping off a whopping 40% in discount giving you a perfect opportunity get an upgrade to your featured handset without taxing your pocket.
Alcatel Pixi 3 has been around since 2015, but looking at the price against what it brings to the table, you might just consider giving it a try. For an amount worth a thin one-off lunch at a rusty restaurant, you get 4GB of internal storage which you can as well expand to 32GB via a micro SD card. And Airtel is spicing up the deal with 1GB data, absolutely free.
Everything about this gadget is old, weak and better described by any adjective pointing to something feeble. Even so, with Android 4.4.2 (KitKat) running the show along with Mediatek MT6572M SoC mated with 512MB RAM, Pixi 3 plays in the same field as most budget Android phones priced at around 5k.
As far as network is concerned, you get both 3G and 2G each on its own slot. However there is a catch, the 3G slot is tied to Airtel line. Not the best carrier overall in a market dominated by Safaricom, but when it comes to offering affordable data packages, Airtel makes the cut.
To keep it alive, Alcatel Pixi 3 relies on a removable Li-Ion 1300mAh battery promising up to 6h talk time over 3G and up to 325h on stand-by. Of equal importance is photography, where you get a 2MP shooter. On top of everything you get WhatsApp, Facebook and Twitter pre-installed to jump start your digital social life.
