The Alcatel One Touch 995 Ultra features a 5-megapixel auto-focus camera with LED flash on the back. Sadly, the images it takes are below average with colors tending to be unnaturally cold with a greenish tint. Images have little resolved detail and are a bit too sharp for our taste. We also wish you could disable the annoying shutter sound.

The rear camera shoots 720p video at 30 frames per second. It’s nice to see that the camera quickly and automatically focuses on objects while shooting video. And while we were disappointed with the quality of still pictures, video recording actually turned out quite decent. The mic filtered out noises well enough, and colors look punchier and more natural.

Alcatel is also including a front-facing VGA camera, which is great for video calls on apps like Skype.


Multimedia:

When it comes to media playback, the Alcatel OT 995 Ultra has one big advantage over its rivals and that’s the big, 4.3-inch WVGA screen. The handset played back 720p HD video easily. If you want to throw 1080p videos at it though, it won’t muscle them up. The speakerphone on the back backs up the picture with crisp and clear sound, but is a bit on the quiet side.
