I am planning to purchase a new mobile handset but i got stuck with the same old brands like Nokia and Samsung. Although they are offering good mobile handset but they are quite expensive when they offer some features like wi-fi and dual sim together. While searching for other brands i saw Alcatel, which offered good looking handset with full features at lowest prices.
I wanted to know that any of you who are using Alcatel mobiles to give their opinion with the handset model number.
Please avoid suggestions about Micromax, Karbonn, Videocon, Onida, Lava, Spice, Zen, and other similar brands.

Alcatel mobiles as you said are not low at costs they offer a great variety of cell phones. If had to buy an Alcatel cell i would prefer the Alcatel One Touch 995 as it bears android operating system 2.3 having a great variety of apps, games etc with a good processor speed. But this costs above 10000/=. if you are searching for a low cost Alcatel cell , i would prefer you Alcatel One Touch 918 with dual sim facility.
And for the goodness of the Alcatel mobiles i would rate them 3.5/5 in general. So it is now your choice.

@Sneha, thanks for your suggestion.
I searched for the above mentioned mobiles online but the price varied as compared to prices suggested by you.
I would like to make online purchase as i do not get enough time to go to market and search for the mobiles.
Can you suggest from which online portal can i make the purchase of the mobiles mentioned by you.
I need a dual sim mobile with wi-fi connectivity with good quality sound while making and receiving calls. I do not exactly need a multimedia phone as i do not play games or use any apps on mobile. For all those purpose i prefer my laptop.
What i need is a good touch phone with decent quality in terms of looks and in making and receiving call. i even used Samsung Galaxy Ace which is decent phone but still some features and its display when in daylight irritates me.
When comparing features i found that alcatel mobiles are way better and cheaper compared to samsung and nokia phones. Nokia and Samsung are infact extorting money in the name of brand. Alcatel itself is a big brand outside India, although it has not fared well till now India, as we are afraid to try new things.
I searched for Alcatel mobiles and i found 720D and 806D, out of which 806D is not available in market and 720D does not have wi-fi.

Till now I have not seen any of my friend using mobile phone of Alcatel. Hence honestly not giving any fake suggestion from my side. There are some websites like flipkart.com which have these brand in their stock. This site also shows the views of customers who have purchased the same model. Those views will guide you before buying new mobile phone of Alcatel.
AS you have also stuck with some old and trusted brands like Nokia and Samsung then try to check the mobiles of these brands on flipkart having low price or which suits in your budget.
By visiting to such website you will get clear idea about prices, various features different handsets and definitely that will save your extra efforts.
