The Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL (Windows) is a variant of the Android-based OneTouch Fierce XL designed to appeal to Windows OS lovers. It is the first smartphone from Alcatel to boot Windows 10 Mobile and comes with basically the same specs as the regular variant.
Display and Camera
The display on this phone is basically the same as that of the first device – a 5.5-inch unit with an HD resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels. With a pixel density of around 267 pixels per inch, the touchscreen promises manageable viewing experience.
The same pair of snappers as seen on the Android version is also provided here. Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL (Windows) features an 8MP rear camera with LED flash and autofocus, coupled with a 2MP front-facing camera.
Hardware and Software
Under the hood, the OneTouch Fierce XL (Windows) is fitted with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor – an entry-level offering – with speeds topping out at 1.1 GHz.
The CPU is given decent boost by 2 GB of RAM, which will surely enhance its responsiveness and capability to multitask. Onboard storage capacity is 32 GB, extendable with a microSD card.
The distinctiveness of the Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL (Windows) is in terms of its operating system, Windows 10 Mobile.
It boasts some of the exciting new features of the OS, including the digital voice assistant Cortana and Microsoft Edge browser, but the Continuum and Windows Hello features are not part of the package.
