Review: Alcatel OneTouch Fierce for T-Mobile

Form Performance Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments  4  

Alcatel did an admirable job with the OneTouch Fierce. It offers a lot of value at just $150 when purchased outright. If you choose T-Mobile's payment plan, you'll fork over just $30 at the register and add only $5 to your monthly bill. For that, you get a solid device that is well made, looks good, and functions well.

The biggest detractors are the screen, which is too blue, and the slow performance across the board thanks to the processor. The processor is the bigger of the two issues. Also, the camera is rather crummy.

If you're not picky about the screen, don't need blazing fast performance, and couldn't give a hoot about quality imaging, there's lots to like. The Fierce performed well on T-Mobile's network and provided excellent call quality through the earpiece. It runs an almost-stock version of Android 4.2, and comes with a good selection of messaging, media, and other apps.

Most $150 phones are lacking something. Despite the Fierce's weaknesses, it covers the smartphone basics with aplomb.
