Android version and market relevance

In November 2011 was announced smartphone Alcatel OT-918. It is located in the series One Touch among many others smartphones Alcatel.

The most important thing you need to know before buying is the version of Android on which the smartphone is launched “out of the box”. And Alcatel OT-918 works on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, that by the way is not so bad as for smartphone of 2011. But here it is still important to know whether this model is updated to a more recent version. Our novelty Alcatel OT-918, unfortunately, is not updated to any new version of Android. And it′s very sad, so we would advise you to look at other models of smartphones that are called in our catalog DROID-smartphones.

Perhaps it will be important for you that the smartphone was a dualsim. Unfortunately Alcatel OT-918 does not support working with two SIM cards, we advise you to look at android smartphones with two SIM cards.

Screen, body and battery

3.2 Inch TFT touchscreen occupies almost the entire area of the front panel of the smartphone Alcatel OT-918. Case thickness 12.1 mm puts the battery in it in capacity 1 300 mAh. As a result, these three important characteristics give us such an idea of the device — small smartphone with very thick case and weak battery.

Main camera and selfie camera

Take photos and videos on smartphone Alcatel OT-918 possible on the main camera on 3.15 MP. We tried to divide all smartphones in the catalog into segments and this model with such a main camera got in the segment of weak chambers. And today there are a lot of camera phones at affordable prices, which we recommend that you look at.

Processor and Internal Memory

The smartphone performance is affected by a lot of factors, and even more so on the android-smartphone, where the developer of the Android operating system and the device manufacturer are absolutely different companies and each develops with its strategy in the market. As a result, in the smartphone you get a hodgepodge: it′s like a “clean” Android, but with a shell from the manufacturer; as though only the necessary applications, but also many unnecessary from the manufacturer. Very often Android-installed apps by default, which you do not even use, are still running and working, they occupy part of the RAM and processor time of your smartphone. This slows the work of other applications and the battery charge is wasted.

So, in Alcatel OT-918 is installed 1-core processor on the chipset Mediatek MT6573. As for RAM, the memory module is used here 0.256 GB.

You can store your photos, videos, music and applications both on the built-in smartphone memory, and on memory cards microSD up to 32 GB. You are only available 0.512 GB built-in memory, so you need to be more careful about what you store on the device.

Price for Alcatel OT-918: buy or not to buy?

In November 2011 begin sales of a new smartphone Alcatel OT-918. The manufacturer said the price of $100 without taxes and fees. And what we get for this money, let′s summarize all the main characteristics. The smartphone has a small touch screen, a normal main camera, a regular battery and a cherry on the cake is not a very powerful processor.

As a result, in 2011 this was a good smartphone in terms of price-performance ratio, and now we advise you to see other smartphones from the same price segment “Affordable smartphones from $100 to $200” or go to DROID smartphones page, where we always keep the current (Android OS) models of smartphones on sale. And before buying, we always advise you to go to an offline electronics store to hold the smartphone in your hands and be sure that you like it. Why do we advise so? Because creating this catalog of smartphones and filling it with photos of models, we are very well aware of the differences between beautiful selling photos from real smartphones, which then the buyers hold in their hands.

We picked up these models at a similar price.
