    Two particular aspects that Alcatel has highlighted is the A3 s premium build and its enhanced level of security due to the inclusion of a fingerprint sensor.

    There’s the budget flash line and the idol/one touch overpriced models. Are they produced by the same alcatel company or different subsidiaries (the tcl-acquired vs the nokia-owned)?
