Alcatel phone question

Does anyone here know about Alcatel phones and especially the dialer? I was looking at the Alcatel A30 Fierce phone, actually the user manual for the phone. The dialer seemed weird - instead of swiping sideways like all other phones, the Alcatel dialer wants you to swipe up. So to answer the phone, you swipe the green icon up. Which seems weird to me, having gotten so used to swiping sideways to answer. Anyone used Alcatel dialers, and is there any way to overcome this weird behavior? TIA.

Swipe up is common these days. My pixel has swipe up.

Just install a 3rd party dialer that works the way you want it to and set it as the default one.
