Alcatel Pixi 4 (4)

Design and Display

The Alcatel Pixi 4 (4) features a relatively appealing unibody design, although the chassis is made of plastic. The construction is sturdy enough to handle rugged use. But this is one thick smartphone at 9.7 millimetres.

As its name indicates, it rocks a 4-inch TFT display with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. A pixel density of about 233 pixels per inch does not give room for much excitement about viewing quality.

Camera and Storage

On the camera front, the Pixi 4 (4) comes with either a 5-megapixel or 2-megapixel main camera with LED flash, panorama and HDR. Surprisingly, the main shooter will support 1080p video recording, but it is not clear of both offerings will support this. The selfie snapper – a VGA or 2-megapixel sensor – does not provide much to be excited about either.

You will only get 4GB or 8GB onboard storage for keeping your photos, songs and movies, depending on the model bought. Storage is expandable by up to 32 GB using a microSD card, though.

Performance and OS

The Alcatel Pixi 4 (4) is powered by a quad-core MediaTek MT6580M processor running along at a speed of 1.3 GHz. This CPU is paired with a Mali-400MP2 GPU and either 512MB or 1GB of RAM. With this setup, not a lot should be expected from the phone in terms of multitasking and responsiveness.

Just like most of the other new Pixi devices, the Pixi 4 (4) boots the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system, which is quite impressive.

Miscellaneous Specs

The phone is accompanied by a 1,500mAh Lithium-Ion battery, which supposedly delivers up to 10 hours in talk time. It offers microUSB 2.0, Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP, 3G and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n with Wi-Fi Direct and hotspot for connectivity.

The Alcatel Pixi 4 (4) also comes with the usual GPS with A-GPS for getting your bearings when going about.

Pricing and Availability

Alcatel Pixi 4 (4) is not yet available in Nigeria. When available, you can buy it at leading online stores in the country. Alcatel Pixi 4 (4) Price in Nigeria is expected to range from N20,000 to N35,000 depending on your location in Nigeria.
