Review: Alcatel Onetouch Conquest for Boost Mobile

Hardware Software Wrap-Up Comments  

The Alcatel Onetouch Conquest checks off most of the basic features required of modern smartphones. It has a decent screen, good call quality, and reasonable data speeds. The hardware is made well enough, even if the design doesn't excite. Perhaps the strongest feature is its resistance to water.

I was disappointed by some core functions, however, including the battery, interface speed, and the camera. Battery life is just barely adequate and often isn't; it's generally sluggish for reasons unknown; and the camera rates lower than average in terms of user experience and image quality.

The Conquest costs only $130, but there are better handsets in Boost's lineup. For example, last year's Motorola Moto G and Moto E cost less and outperform the Conquest by a mile. If you can spend $199 (which, I realize, is a sizable price increase), the Apple iPhone 5c is crushingly better than the Conquest. Bottom line: shop around; don't settle.
