Alcatel OneTouch Fire E is a mid level Firefox device, packed with a 4.5-inches touch-screen, a 1200 MHz Dual-Core processor, a 5 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 0.3 MP front facing camera. But let's get into much more details.

This device is a compact cellphone, given that it presents a 4.5 inches display and it's only 5.08 inches long and 2.5 inches wide. The Alcatel OneTouch Fire E is incredibly slim and good-looking, being just 0.32 inches thick.

Alcatel ships this cellphone with a quite powerful Dual-Core CPU speeding at 1200 megahertz with 512 MB RAM memory. The Alcatel OneTouch Fire E counts with a 4 GB internal storage, an average amount that should be enough for the vast majority of users having that it also has a slot for external memory cards to store photographs and videos and even some games and apps that allow being installed in the external memory.

This phone features two cameras, a 5 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 0.3 mega-pixels front camera. The camera also features a couple of nice characteristics: face detection shooting, flash, smile detection shooting, geo tagging and HDR mode.

This cellphone has a good level 4.5" display with a 960 x 540 resolution, which makes all images and movies look very good. Its display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and is multi-touch enabled.

The Alcatel OneTouch Fire E counts with Wi-Fi connectivity (and it can be provided to other devices as a mobile hotspot), 4G (HSPA+) data connection, which is not as fast as LTE or LTE-A 4G networks or 3G fast connectivity, over HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This device works with a SIM card to connect to GSM networks.

This cellphone also features some interesting features like Bluetooth (4.0), GPS and NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your cellphone close to another NFC device or tag), and some sensors likeAccelerometer and Compass.

This phone has a medium sized 1700 mAh battery providing the Alcatel OneTouch Fire E with a not very long battery duration.

Alcatel sells this cellphone for 249 dollars, which is not a good offer for a phone this level.
