Alcatel Tru

Description

The Alcatel Tru sports a 5-inch screen with 480 x 854 pixels, thus offering one of the least sharp displays currently on the market. The phone is powered by a not-so-powerful quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 CPU clocked at 1.1 GHz, further offering 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of expandable storage space, and a 2000 mAh battery for "all day use." There's a 2 MP camera on the front of the handset, and a 5 MP one on the back - with LED flash and "Polaroid filters". The new Alcatel smartphone features a "soft noir faux leather back", and unfortunately runs Android Lollipop.

Cons

  • Thick body (0.39 inches)
