Alcatel Your First Choice
There’s a lot of choice in the modern smartphone market, especially now that even established brands like Apple and Samsung have proven themselves fallible to many of the same flaws they usually condemn in their competitors. If you’re looking to buy your first smartphone, the amount of brands and options is overwhelming. Everywhere you look, there’s an opinion and they’re all conflicted. It’s hard to know where to start.
Even more so if you’re a parent just looking to connect with your child by helping them buy their first smartphone. If you fall into that category, chances are you’ll want a handset that’s both low cost for you and feature rich for them. Perhaps most importantly, you’ll want to go with a brand that has a track record for reliability.
With so many demands in the mix, it’s no wonder so many parents go overboard and spend more than they need to. The fact is there is already a brand that can provide what parents need in a first smartphone, and it goes by the name of Alcatel. The company have a veritable suite of budget phone offerings just asking to be stuffed in a stocking this holiday season.
Exclusively available through Boost, the Boost Dex by Alcatel features a hard interchangeable plastic shell on one side and a 5-inch display on the other side. The Boost Dex by Alcatel appeals to the ever-fickle millennial audience by offering up customisable style and fantastic audio alongside solid specs. Like all Alcatel handsets, it shows that low price doesn’t have to mean a lesser experience.
Beyond the 1.0Ghz quad-core processor, the Boost Dex by Alcatel features 8GB of internal memory (expandable by up to 32GB via SD card) and a battery that offers up a reasonable 11 hours of 3G talk-time (alongside up to 440 hours of standby-time). It’s even got the edge when it comes to audio, courtesy of optimized Arkamys enhanced sound and DJ software.
Then there’s the slim-lined Alcatel Pop 4. It sports a 5” screen, is equipped with 4G connectivity, quick-charge functionality alongside 8 MP rear camera and a 5 MP front camera, with integrated flash both front and back. If your child is dying to take their first steps as tomorrow’s next Instagram celebrity, this is the one to go with.
When it comes to value-driven handsets, it earns back every dollar. It’s a phone that’s designed to go the distance and deliver all the features you know your child will want it to have.
Likewise, the Telstra Pixi Vibe by Alcatel allows users to capture the amazing moments in your life, while 8GB of internal memory gives you plenty of room to store and hold onto those memories. All told, it’s light, compact and capable smartphone that delivers all the basics. It’s exactly what you need at a low price point that’s almost unprecedented. Boost Dex by Alcatel is available now for $99 at Boost.com.au and from retailers including Big W, Kmart and Target.
