Android version and market relevance

Alcatel Hero is smartphone of 2013, which was officially announced in September the world′s electronics manufacturer — the company Alcatel. In addition, this smartphone supports the work of two SIM cards, here you are, and please, the first reason for buying this model (or any other dual-smartphone from the catalog).

In 2013 this new model works out of the box running the Android operating system 4.2 Jelly Bean. But in the market of android-smartphones an important factor when buying a new device is the possibility of updating it to a fresh version of the OS. So Alcatel Hero has not received any software updates, which is very sad, so we advise you to look at other DROID-smartphones in our catalog.

Screen, body and battery

Average capacity Alcatel Hero battery received a volume of 3 400 mAh. In this case, the smartphone has huge touchscreen IPS LCD with diagonal 6″.

The thickness of the shell is 8.5 mm. This is a very thick case, we advise you to look in our catalog smartphones with thin cases, which fit comfortably in your hand.

Main camera and selfie camera

The main camera on 13 MP located on the back of the smartphone. The frontcamera at Alcatel Hero received 2 MP that is not much. There are smartphones with a good selfie-camera.

Processor and Internal Memory

The more cores the smartphone processor has, the faster it works. Of course, do not forget that the applications should be optimized for the version of Android. But if we are talking about technical characteristics, then the processor here 4-core on the chipset Mediatek MT6589. RAM 2 GB.

Built-in memory for storing different data (photo, video, applications, music, etc.) here 8 GB, but there are still options for 16 GB. You choose which version of the smartphone to buy, so it was comfortable to use it. Do not forget that the update of the software version will be available for your smartphone, and for this you need to download it first, and if the space is not enough, it will not be able to update. Therefore, we advise you before buying to think about how much internal memory you need.

If we scared you just in the context of the built-in memory, then do not worry, because Alcatel Hero supports memory cards microSD with the maximum volume 32 GB. And this means that you can store all photos and videos with music on the memory card.

Price for Alcatel Hero: buy or not to buy?

The smartphone Alcatel Hero got into our price segment “Middle class smartphones from $300 to $400” and began to be sold in January 2013 at a price of $370. Evaluation of the characteristics, probably, you have already folded, and if not, here is our result. Alcatel Hero is a fast smartphone with a huge screen and a cool main camera, and the front camera did not turn out super cool. And to all this we add that the battery here is absolutely normal.

Is it worth buying now this model of the smartphone, we are talking about our status “Droid-or-Junk”. Of course, at the beginning of sales, almost every smartphone becomes a Droid, and we advise buying such models. But over time, the situation is changing, no one updates the Android version in the smartphone, and in six months or a year this smartphone can already become a Junk. In this case, we advise you to go to the DROID smartphones page in our catalog, where we always show the most current models on sale for today. There are variants from different price segments, so you will have plenty to choose from.

We picked up these models at a similar price.
