    I have one of these ****ty Alcatel phones, and it's just bad, like really bad, who the **** approved these for production? They need to be hung for ignorance. I've had to restart this hunk of junk 4 times in the last hour. Garbage, straight garbage.

    Welcome to Android Central! You understand that Alcatel phones aren't made in France, right? They're all manufactured by TCL, a Chinese company. Alcatel phones are budget devices -- that's the reason their quality isn't as high as much more expensive flagships from other companies. If you want higher quality devices, be willing to spend more. Or do your homework and figure out which companies make better budget/midrange devices (like the Pixel 3a, and soon-to-be-announced Pixel 4a).

    There are numerous possible causes for a phone needing to be restarted frequently, and many of those are related to apps the user installed, or other user error. So before you call the phone garbage, you need to make sure you didn't install any garbage apps, or make any garbage modifications to the phone. The first step would be to test the phone in Safe Mode.

    The French are not bad at making things. Good, yes; bad, no.

    Alcatel is TCL's low end budget brand.

    Expect terrible quality from those things.

    Even their "premium" BlackBerry devices had room for improvement in terms of quality control.

    I had an Alcatel phone for a short while.
    It wasn’t bad for a cheap phone. Also, it wasn’t made in France.
