Review: Alcatel Fierce XL with Windows for T-Mobile

Hardware Software Wrap-Up Comments  1  

Alcatel is known for churning out low-cost handsets that provide a reasonably good experience for the dollar. That's about exactly what the Fierce XL does. It delivers Windows 10 in a handset friendly to every budget.

The XL has a nice, big screen, but plain styling and average build quality. The phone performs well on T-Mobile's network, which means call quality is good and data speeds are quick. The battery does a great job, but Bluetooth and GPS performance were average. The camera is a disappointment.

The Windows 10 platform covers the basics in terms of core features (email, browser, Facebook, games), but lacks the depth of apps available to Android and iOS devices. Windows' real strength is found in its Office suite, which syncs seamlessly across devices. It's a boon to those who need to be productive.

At $140 for full price, or less than $6 per month, the Alcatel Fierce XL is a bargain. It's one of the cheapest Windows 10 handsets in the market. If you're a long-time Android user just looking for something different, don't bother. But if you're specifically seeking an inexpensive avenue in Windows 10, the Fierce XL provides that route.
