It wasn’t too long ago that any phone priced around $U130 would be a complete joke. And while Alcatel’s most recent attempt at making a phone that cheap still had some hiccups, the next version of the budget-friendly 1X looks like it’s taking some big steps to fix its mistakes.

No one gets a cheap phone because they want to have a sub-par experience filled with stuttering and lagging apps. People get cheap phones because they're cheap, and usually work just enough to justify the low price point. Take the Alcatel 1X, for example. It's neither novel nor intriguing. It's not trying to impress you. Hell, it runs on an operating system designed explicitly for underpowered devices. But it's $129, and that sure is cheap. Whether you can stomach how cheap it feels is another thing entirely.
