Review: Alcatel Onetouch Conquest for Boost Mobile
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.
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.
