Despite all the marketing telling us otherwise, not every mobile phone user needs a smartphone. Sometimes, calls, texts and emails, perhaps with a bit of browsing is enough. If that’s you, the ALcatel 510A is the one for you. Like all Mr Aberthon devices, the 510A is supplied fully unlocked for use on any GSM network, and is covered by our 14 Day Returns Policy.

It sounds unlikely in this age of smartphones and advanced mobile technology to say that 30% of mobile phone users in the US still don’t want – or need – a smartphone. Those people are happy with a phone that will allow them to stay in touch with family and friends when out and about. This figure rises to over 60% once we get into the realms of the senior citizen. So why spend hundreds of dollars on a phone that has a million features? Most of which you have little interest in?
The answer is you don’t have to. The Alcatel 510A brings all you need to your own personal technology party. It allows you to make all the calls you want, send texts and even emails. And it does it all with the minimum of fuss and bother. It also means there’s no long and very steep learning curve to go through just to figure out how to turn it on.
The Alcatel 510A is, in every sense, a pocket wonder. At just 4.53 x 1.87 x 0.5 inches, weighing in at 2.8 ounces – which is about a fraction of a hamster. You know just how light those things are as the 510A will fit just about anywhere. It definitely won’t weigh you down. We checked, and it will actually fit in the little watch pocket of a pair of jeans. Okay, it sticks out of the top a little, but still, that’s impressively small.
I know we’ve played down the connectivity a little, but the 510A has 3G data capability, so it can be used for surfing websites with the built in browser if you ever need it.
The proprietary operating system draws remarkably little power, so the inclusion of an 850mAh battery helps to keep that weight down so low, and yet still provides 4.2 hours of talk time or nearly 20 days standby time.
There’s also an external speaker for hands-free operation. So, despite not bothering with all the smartphone peripheral stuff, the Alcatel 510A does just about everything else you might actually need from a mobile phone.
And then there’s the price. At Mr Aberthon, we make sure we offer the best value for money possible. But even we had to check our sums twice to make sure the price we’re selling this terrific no-frills phone for was correct.
The Brits have a saying for things that do exactly what they should, “It does exactly what it says on the tin”, and the 510A does just that. No flash, no glitz, just a rock solid mobile phone to suit everybody.
