The super saver
Display and configuration
The Alcatel Pixi 4 comes with a 5-inch TFT display with a resolution of 480 x 854 pixels, which results in a modest pixel density of 196 ppi. The capacitive touch screen responds well to multi-touch.
On the inside, the budget smartphone is powered by a quad-core Cortex A53 processor, which is placed firmly on a MediaTek MT6735M and clocks a speed of 1GHz, with the assistance of a 1GB RAM. A GPU of Mali-T720 MP2 looks after the graphical interface.
Camera and storage
With an 8MP lens, LED flash and CMOS image sensor, the primary camera, on the Alcatel Pixi 4, is capable of processing images of 3,264 x 2,448 pixels and videos of 1,280 x 720 at 30 frames per second. However, the LED on the 5MP front camera is what stands out in this low range smartphone and looks to be enough for low light selfies and video calling.
The device comes with an 8GB internal memory, which can be further expanded up to 32GB with the help of a microSD.
Battery and connectivity
The Alcatel Pixi 4 draws its juice for a 2,000mAh li-ion type battery, which keeps the showtime running for a pretty long period of time.
To meet the connectivity requirements, the device includes dual SIM slot, both of which support 4G, Wi-Fi 802.11, b/g/n, v4.0 Bluetooth, A-GPS, microUSB 2.0 and mobile hotspot.
With the growing demand for 4G phones, the Alcatel Pixi 4 ticks that box at a very meagre price range. Though not a very well known mobile maker, the Alcatel succeeds in sustaining itself in this competitive market. Though it does not feature any outstanding specs, anything more than this seems to be too much to ask for, at such a low budget.
