Hands-on of Alcatel Pixi 3 (8), Fierce XL and more: Alcatel at CES 2016

Alcatel at CES 2016

GSMArena team, 6 January, 2015.

Introduction

Each year Alcatel designs a plethora of affordable devices and most of them become available as carrier-exclusives around the world. The Pixi series has been quite popular among the budged devices, as those phones have been fully subsidized by the operators. And while you may not be seeing Alcatel in most of the retail stores, its phones are out there offering Android experience on affordable prices.

This year Alcatel decided to offer the users even more choices and in addition to the new Pixi 4 lineup, Alcatel expanded its device portfolio with new Windows 10 phones and slates. You bet they come with attractive price tags and target the mainstream users.

Within the first week of having the Alcaltel One Touch Fierce XL, I had problems with the phone freezing (unable to receive or make calls, no dial tone, etc.). I was instructed to return it and was sent the same model phone with the same problems. ...
