Alcatel One Touch 918 - Expert Reviews

Introduction

It is always good to see new firms entering the smartphone market, for it gives consumers a lot of options to choose from and also forces the existing players to up the ante and enhance their game in order to acquire an edge over others. Also, a lot of companies which have been in the Indian market for quite some time but did not taste the kind of success they would have liked to, are trying to reinvent themselves. Alcatel is also one of those companies that have adopted Android as the software platform for its smartphones. Alcatel One Touch 918 is a mid scale smartphone from Alcatel that comes with a length of 112mm, breadth of 58.6mm and thickness of 12.1mm. The smartphone weighs 123 grams and accommodates a mini SIM that is compatible with 2G and 3G networks.

 

The gadget sports a 3.2 inches TFT capacitive touchscreen with 256k colors of depth resolution and a pixel density of 180ppi. Obviously, both the figures fail to impress us and the resolution of 320 by 480 pixels does not help things either. A dated Android Gingerbread 2.3.5 operating system is used as the operating system that encompasses formidable software for the device. The hardware is not that impressive with a 650MHz single-core processor working with a lowly 256MB of RAM. Therefore, Alcatel One Touch 918 would not be the fastest smartphone that we have come across and the speed may take an even harder hit with high-end applications and tasks. There are various colors in which the smartphone is available namely, Black, Aubergine, Cherry Red and Pure White. The gadget has a 3.15 megapixels primary camera that comes at a resolution of 2048 by 1536 pixels.

 

The shutter gets geo-tagging feature but otherwise, is pretty modest when it comes to its assisting tools. The smartphone lacks a secondary camera, which would deprive the user from making video calls over the web. Alcatel One Touch 918 is powered by a 1300mAh standard lithium-ion battery that comes out with a winning talk time of up to 9 hours in 2G and up to 6 hours and 30 minutes in 3G. The standby time derived by the gadget is up to 430 hours, which is more than satisfactory. The built-in memory for the gadget is 150MB while ROM is of 512MB. The external memory of the device can be enhanced up to 32GB through the use of microSD card slot.

 

We are happy that the device has Wi-Fi hotspot that acts as the only tethering feature for the gadget while the conventional Internet features for the device include Wi-Fi, GPRS, EDGE and HTML5 browser. The user can surf the web at a speed of 32 to 48Kbps and download data at a speed of up to 14.4Mbps. Uploading of data can be done at a speed of up to 5.76Mbps. Bluetooth 4.0 and USB port 2.0 are provided for data exchange activity as well.     

Operating system and UI

Camera

Memory

The device gives a 512MB memory card, which adds to the built-in 150MB internal memory. The overall memory can be taken to new heights via the usage of an external memory up to 32GB through a microSD card slot.

Other Features

Connectivity
