Short description Alcatel OT-916

This is a smartphone on Android 2.3 Gingerbread with a not very fast processor, with a small touchscreen size, with  the usual main camera for photos and video, and the front camera here turned out to be . The body of Alcatel OT-916 has received a non-standard form factor: it is a touchscreen with a physical QWERTY keyboard. Today, this type of phones bodies seems strange and not very practical, but earlier it was an interesting solution.

Android version and market relevance

New smartphone Alcatel OT-916 introduced a company Alcatel in April 2012. It has Android version 2.3 Gingerbread, which, unfortunately, it will not be possible to update, because the manufacturer did not take care of it.

Well, what can I say, Alcatel OT-916 is a smartphone of 2012 with fairly normal characteristics, which is located in our price segment “Affordable smartphones from $100 to $200”.

Screen, body and battery

By the size of the Alcatel OT-916 screen, we were assigned to a segment very compact smartphones. See for yourself, here is TFT-screen with diagonal 2.6″.

Dimensions of the screen dictate to us and the size of the case. At Alcatel OT-916 the case turned out very thick — 11.6 mm. Today you can easily choose and buy a new smartphone with a very thin case. The battery in this model has a capacity 1 500 mAh. There is a physical QWERTY keyboard — at the moment this is a very rare feature of the case, which is out of date right after the surge in the popularity of touchscreen smartphones.

Main camera and selfie camera

The smartphone Alcatel OT-916 has only one main camera on 3.15 MP. There is no front camera. If you look at the quality of the photo of the main camera, then you hardly will be satisfied with the quality of these photos, because the camera is rather weak. We advise buying (well, or at least look) camera phones. This is smartphones with very good cameras on the market.

Processor and Internal Memory

A smartphone without a processor will not work. And the better the processor, the faster the smartphone works. Alcatel OT-916 received 1-core processor Mediatek MT6573.

But, more importantly, it′s the amount of built-in memory for storing your information (photo, video, music, etc.). Here you will receive 0.15 GB. You can still do this — buy a smartphone with a minimum amount of memory to save a bit, and buy a memory card microSD up to 32 GB, because in this model there is a slot for memory cards.

Price for Alcatel OT-916: buy or not to buy?

Life is fleeting, and the life of a smartphone on the mobile market in general can be compared with the life of a butterfly. And all because the producers of android-smartphones do not always want to support their devices and prefer to release a new model in six months. Therefore, our task is to help you choose the actual smartphone today, which is being sold and will be still relevant for at least the next six months. If Alcatel OT-916 you find among DROID smartphones in our catalog, you can safely buy it now, and if you do not find it, then its better already do not buy.

However, official sales Alcatel OT-916 began in April 2012. The manufacturer said the price of $120 without taxes and fees. With such a price level on Alcatel OT-916, we placed it in the price segment “Affordable smartphones from $100 to $200”.

Buy Alcatel OT-916 you can in any store (or on the Internet, or in the electronics supermarket), we just advise you to see live on the smartphone and hold it in your hands before buying.

We picked up these models at a similar price.
