Alcatel OneTouch PIXI First Review & Specs

Alcatel OneTouch PIXI First is a decent Android phone released back in 2015, which features a fast 1200 MHz processor, a 4-inches display, and 2 cameras, a 5 megapixels back camera and a 2 MP front camera.

Alcatel ships this phone with a good processing unit clocking at 1200 megahertz, packed into the Spreadtrum SC7731G system chip and 512 MB RAM memory. This cellphone counts with a 4 GB internal storage memory, a decent amount that should be fine for the average user having that it also has an external SD slot .

This phone is slim and practical, with a thickness of just 0.38 inches. Alcatel made the Alcatel OneTouch PIXI First in three different colors, black, gray and gold.

This cellphone is equipped with two cameras, a 5 megapixels back camera and a 2 MP front-facing camera. It also shoots videos in Full HD 1920×1080 at 24 frames per second. This camera also includes flash and geo tagging.

The Alcatel OneTouch PIXI First is equipped with a very good 800 x 480 4-inches screen, making everything look very nice. Its screen uses TFT capacitive technology, and is multi-touch enabled.

This phone offers wifi capability (but it can’t be shared with other devices acting as a hotspot), HSPA+ (4G) connection type, that is not so fast as LTE or LTE-A 4G networks or 3G fast internet connection, supported by HSDPA, HSUPA and EDGE technologies. This phone comes with 2 SIM cards so it’s able to use 2 different phone numbers and even different carriers.

This phone also features many interesting features like Bluetooth (allows communication with other devices, computers and accessories), FM Radio, GPS (Global Positioning System) and NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your cellphone close to another NFC device or tag), and some sensors likeProximity Sensor and Accelerometer.
