A brand new offering from Alcatel, just released earlier this month, and described as the smartphone that gives you a vibrant onscreen experience packed with all the technology you need to power your mobile life.
The OneTouch Fierce XL (OT-5054N) features a 5.5-inch HD (720p) display screen, and is powered by the Qualcomm ® Snapdragon™ Quad-Core processor with 2GB of RAM, so it’s powerful enough to make multi-tasking nice and easy. The OS is Android 5.1 1 Lollipop. It comes with 16GB of available internal storage, generous for a phone in its price bracket, and you can also add an extra 32GB with a MicroSD card. The display resolution is 720p, which translates to 1,280 x 720 pixels.
The Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL runs on a long-lasting 2500mAh battery offering 12 hours of talk time and 360 hours of standby. The phone also includes an 8MP auto-focus camera enhanced with Polaroid ™ software to enable editing, framing and sharing photos, as well as a not overly exciting 2MP front camera.
But what’s particularly fun about this phone is that in Polaroid mode you can get that old-fashioned instant camera look through the use of filters. This mode allows you to not only add the classic white border to your photos, but to also add the Polaroid classic border logo, as well as date, location, and text tags.
This big but budget priced Android phone was launched on November 2 through Metro PCS for just $140 on pay as you go. But it gets even better. Metro PCS has slashed the $140 price tag in half to offer the ONETOUCH Fierce at a 50% discount offered via a $70 rebate, so the phone, a full 5.5 inch phablet style device, is now down to only $70 overall.
As for Alcatel, its strategy these days to compete with the bigger players is to offer competitively priced Android phones tailored to exact cellphone provider specifications. That said, it is also possible to track down a Windows 10 version of the new phone. According to Alcatel, the phone supports WiFi Calling, HD voice, and VoLTE, and also supports 4G LTE Cat 4 networks. The phone also offers what is known as “enhanced Google Translate”, which allows for instant translations from or to 89 languages via writing, scanning, and speaking.
As for looks, well there’s nothing too radical going on here, it’s a Samsung inspired lookalike with a slim bezel designed with a sleek matte silver finish and rounded corners. The slim 9.45mm silhouette enables the phone to fit in purses and pockets with ease.
Service provider Metro PCS claims to offer coverage to 96% of America, and runs through T-Mobile from coast to coast. Metro PCS are one of the pioneers in offering pay as you go contracts so you are not necessarily stuck with the same phone for two whole years.
