Avoiding malware on our smartphones and computers is pretty easy: just don’t install apps or visit suspicious sounding and looking websites. Granted this isn’t a guarantee that you can’t get infected, but usually practicing such habits can help. Unfortunately for owners of certain Alcatel handsets, their phones actually came with malware preinstalled.
Android Go is an iteration of Android Oreo that Google launched last year. It’s meant for affordable devices with 1GB of RAM or less. Many manufacturers have made Android Go smartphones that cost under $100 and promise an improved software experience because of this iteration of Google’s platform. Alcatel is one such device and it’s now available for purchase in the United States from Amazon.
Announced at MWC 2018, the Alcatel 7 is a low-mid-range smartphone (~$180) that features an excellent battery capacity of 4000 mAh, which identical to high-end phones like the new Galaxy Note 9, or the Huawei P20 Pro.
Google’s Android Go initiative will bring a new wave of affordable smartphones that run an optimized version of Android with lightweight apps. Many OEMs have started developing their Android Go handsets and Alcatel is one of them. The company has officially announced its Alcatel 1 Android Go smartphone. It will start shipping the device next month and customers will be able to pick one up for $89.
A handful of Google’s OEM partners have committed to making Android Go-powered devices. ZTE launched its Android Go device back in March and while it could have been the first such smartphone to be sold in the United States, the recent ban placed by the U.S. Department of Commerce on the company has effectively crippled the company and forced it to cease business operations. This means that Alcatel can now […]

With so many tablets available in the market today, consumers are really spoilt for choice. However if you’re looking for a tablet for the sake of a tablet and don’t really want to break the bank by buying an iPad or iPad Pro, Alcatel and T-Mobile might have something for you in the form of the Alcatel A30.
How many cameras do you think are enough on a smartphone? Most of them have two for good reason, one in the front and one in the back. However, some manufacturers have started adopting dual-camera systems for the back to provide even better imaging features. If you’re Alcatel, you think that a smartphone needs four cameras, which is precisely the number of camera’s you’ll find on its new Flash smartphone.
What To Expect At MWC 2017Editor's Pick
Earlier last month we attended CES 2017, an event about consumer electronics in general. However if you were less interested in refrigerators, robots for the home, or the latest and most beautiful televisions, and are more interested in the mobile scene, then MWC 2017 is probably the event that you’ve been waiting for.
It was reported recently that Alcatel is going to make waves at the Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona next month by launching five new smartphones. It’s also believed that one of those smartphones is going to be a modular device much like the LG G5. The company today sent out invites to the press for its MWC 2017 press conference and the invite hints at its modular smartphone.
Recent reports have suggested that Sony is going to launch five new smartphones at the Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona next month. A new report claims that it’s not going to be the only company that launches that many handsets. Alcatel is reportedly going to unveil five new smartphones as well and one of them is claimed to be a modular smartphone.
T-Mobile recently launched a new device made by Alcatel in the United States and it happens to be powered by Windows 10. This device – the Alcatel Idol 4S – was actually launched earlier this year with Android. The Windows 10-powered version appears to be limited to T-Mobile at this point in time, and the manufacturer itself has confirmed that this particular handset is not going to be released across […]
Last week, T-Mobile inadvertently revealed that it would soon launch a Windows 10 VR headset on its network. The smartphone in question is actually called the Alcatel Idol 4S. It’s powered by Windows 10 Mobile and is VR-ready, an Android-powered version of this handset was already released earlier this year. T-Mobile has announced its first Windows 10 VR smartphone officially today.
T-Mobile today launched a new mobile hotspot device for customers who require internet connectivity on the go. It enables users to connect multiple devices and share the internet connection between them. Since the hotspot device has an integrated battery it’s great for using when you’re out and about. The Alcatel Linkzone mobile hotspot is available starting today from T-Mobile.
Earlier this year Alcatel ventured into virtual reality when they launched the OneTouch Idol 4S. This was a handset that came in a box that also doubled up as a set of VR goggles. However if you’re not a fan of such a setup and would prefer something more complete and not have to rely on a smartphone, Alcatel might have something for you.
Prepaid carrier Cricket Wireless is offering a pretty good deal on a mid-range handset. The Alcatel Idol 4 – a handset that was announced earlier this year – is now available for purchase in the United States from Cricket Wireless. It’s offering the handset for $200 along with a compatible virtual reality headset. This is a good offer for those looking for a cheap entry into the world of VR.
Earlier this year Alcatel unveiled their Idol 4S smartphone. While it might sound like just another phone, one of the handset’s unique features and possibly even its selling point is the fact that the box that the handset come in actually pulls double duty by being a VR headset. This means that you’ll be getting a phone and a VR headset at the same time.
Before a particular handset can be released to the masses, it will first need to pick up its fair share of certifications along the way, to make sure that the various bodies in the industry give it the go ahead after deeming it safe for release and use among the masses. Well, it looks like the same can be said of the Alcatel Idol4 Pro, which has been leaked quite […]
Alcatel, which happens to be a company that is currently owned by TCL, has been quite the consistent performer when it comes to the Flash brand. After all, back in September a couple of years ago, Alcatel introduced their very first Flash, and the Flash 2 was announced one year after the original in order to keep up a semblance of consistency. It looks like we do not have to […]
The Alcatel Idol 4 Pro has had its fair share of rumors, as we talked about it slightly more than a week ago, never mind the fact that the folks over at Alcatel have not yet stepped forward to confirm the existence of this particular device. It seems that the Alcatel Idol 4 Pro is all set to roll out some time in 2016 (we’ll be darned if it doesn’t!), […]
