Alcatel which is a low budget phone maker also has an entry in this list. Although this phone does not have any groundbreaking or even decent specs it still manages to come into the list of top 5 because TracFone isn’t hosting many phones currently. But still talking about this smartphone, it can serve all basic needs of a mobile phone. It has all the features of a good smartphone but all are spec-ed down to the lowest.
