Alcatel 3T10 2020 price in Nepal is Rs. 23,490 for the 3/32GB variant. It comes with a MediaTek MT8766B chipset, HD+ display, and a 5500mAh battery.
So, is Alcatel 3T10 2020 good enough? I used it for a week and here’s what I think!

Alcatel 3T10 2020 Review
- 243.3 X 161.2 X 9.35mm, 475 g,
Alcatel 3T10 has a polycarbonate back with a single camera on the rear. The polycarbonate back has a matte finish and there’s a subtle pattern on the rear.
It looks good and it doesn’t catch smudges easily. As for weight, it measures 475 g so it does feel heavy but that’s what we expect from most tablets.
Alcatel 3T10 Design
3T10 has a power button and volume keys on the right side. Up top, there’s a 3.5mm headphone jack, USB Type C port, and a single sim + microSD slot. On the right, there’s a single speaker.
Overall build and design of Alcatel 3T10 is pretty good for the price.
- 10.1 inches HD+
- 800 x 1280 pixels
Alcatel 3T10 features a 10.1 inches HD+ display with a screen resolution of 800 x 1280 pixels.
First thing you’ll notcie about the diplay is that it is very reflective.
For a display this big, an FHD resolution would have been better as the pixel density is not good on the 3T10. The display doesn’t feel sharp and that is mostly due to the HD+ resolution.
Alcatel 3T10 2020 Display
As for colors, it is not great and has a neutral color profile. I would say, it is decent for the price. What’s not good enough is the brightness. While it is okayish indoors, you won’t be able to use this tablet outdoors under sunlight.
Another thing to keep an eye on is the reflectiveness of the display. You will have a hard time watching content on this big screen in a bright room.
- MediaTek MT8766B
- Quad-core (4×2.0 GHz A53)
- PowerVR GE8300
- 32GB 3GB RAM
In terms of hardware, It has a MediaTek MT8766B chipset. MT8766B has a Quad-core (4×2.0 GHz A53) CPU and PowerVR GE8300 GPU.
For memory, it has 3GB RAM paired with 32GB onboard storage.
Normal tasks like internet browsing, app browsing, and video calls are just fine. It can run these kinds of tasks but the experience won’t be smooth.
Playing heavy games is out of the question, you will only be able to play games like Alto’s Odyssey. For the price, you can get phones with better performance. However, that’s not the case for tablets as it is hard to find a tablet with good performance at this price tag.
In terms of camera, it has a 5MP rear and 5MP front camera. As with all the tablets, it is decent enough for video calling. You won’t be taking many pictures or videos with it.
- Non-removable Li-Po 5500mAh battery
- 10W charging
Alcatel 3T10 2020 has a 5500mAh battery which is average in 2021. The battery will last for more than a day but I would have liked a slightly bigger battery on a tablet.
As for charging, the 10W charging takes around 4 hours to fully charge the tablet.
It looks like there’s a dual speaker setup but it only has a single speaker on the right side. I was not impressed with the sound quality but it’s fine for the price. Also, the max volume is not too loud.
: Alcatel Tablets Price in Nepal: Features and Specs
Alcatel 3T 10 2020 runs on stock Android 10. The skin has been slightly modified but most of the things are untouched. Especially the settings menu is totally like the stock Android.
Alcatel 3T10 2020 OS
Alcatel has customized the icons and added some bloatware. Except that, the OS feels like a stock Android. Some useful features like ambient display and reading mode have been added as well.
For Rs. 23,490 Alcatel 3T10 2020 is an average tablet that is only useful for general purposes. This tablet is mostly for kids and family usage like video calls.
Except that, the 3T10 2020 will not handle heavy games and as a matter of fact, content viewing is also not that enjoyable. The later issue is mostly due to the reflective display.
One of the major advantages of this tablet is the availability of 4G connectivity. It is hard to find other tablets with 4G sim support at this price range.
If you want a tablet for general family usage then you could go for it, else you will be better of with a smartphone.
