Rear-mounted Fingerprint scanner

We usually don't get to see a fingerprint scanner on a sub $200 smartphone, so it's a very nice feature to have and help increase the security of your data.

Very low RAM, only 1GB

Having 1GB of RAM is definitely a deal-breaker for me. I mean, it's a 6-inch phablet, why make it so weak? This is a big disadvantage.

Plastic body

One of the places that Alcatel cut corners is the build quality, and the A3 XL has an all-plastic exterior design instead of a metal one.

Very low resolution for a 6-inch display

The A3 XL has a huge screen, but unfortunately it comes with a very low 720x1280 pixel (HD) resolution display, not suffice for such a larger display and really bad for VR.
