Reviews for the Alcatel OneTouch Hero 2

65% Alcatel OneTouch Hero 2 Review
Source: Phone Arena English
The Alcatel OneTouch Hero 2 sounds like a powerful phone and a great budget-friendly, stylus-equipped phablet, which should appeal to those who are in the market for such a device. It costs around ~$430 (€350), and for this sort of money, one would expect mostly smooth operation. Unfortunately, choppy performance and a next-to-unusable stylus detracts from the experience to the point where one may wish to look for other options.

Comment

Model: The Alcatel OneTouch Hero 2 is branded as a fun device aimed at creative users. Not to say that this smartphone can't be used for serious work, on the contrary, it excels in that department. The Alcatel OneTouch Hero 2 is well designed with curved edges for good in-hand comfort. Display on the smartphone is a 6 inch IPS LCD with Dragontrail glass. Users can expect good clarity and colors with an excellent screen real estate. Around this gorgeous screen is a dark grey bezel that holds in the integrated capacitive stylus. The rear panel is kept simple with the Alcatel OneTouch branding contrasting the dark grey.

The Android 4.4.2 KitKat device comes with a Cortex-A7 octa-core processor clocked at 2.0 GHz, 2 GB RAM, Mali-450MP4 GPU and an internal storage of 16 GB. As users can see these specifications are an indicator for performance and the Alcatel OneTouch Hero 2 can deliver. There is a 13.1 MP primary camera with optical image stabilization and a secondary 5 MP front facing shooter. Other features include microSD support, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, stereo FM radio with RDS and A-GPS. The Alcatel OneTouch Hero 2 comes with Sidekick 2 support, a handset. So, users can put aside the larger smartphone. Battery life is good with a non-removable Li-Ion 3100 mAh cell powering the device.

ARM Mali-450 MP4: OpenGL ES 2.0 GPU for ARM based SoCs with 4 fragment processors and 1 vertex processor. These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Alcatel:

The former French manufacturer of telecommunication equipment merged to Alcatel-Lucent in 2006. Several business segments were sold to other companies, so the Alcatel brand is now used by various companies. The Chinese company TCL uses the brand names "Alcatel One Touch" and "Alcatel Idol" for smartphones and tablets.

The market share in the smartphone + tablet segment is very small, but there are quite some recent reviews in different languages. The ratings are average (as of 2016).


73.67%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
