Android version and market relevance

The long-awaited announcement of a new smartphone from the manufacturer Alcatel, which took place in July 2012 (in our catalog you can see all smarphones of 2012). This is a new model Alcatel OT-997D — dual-smartphone works on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which does not receive software updates and will forever remain on the old version of Android. If this does not suit you, then be sure to check the selected ones DROID-smartphones in our catalog. These are models that work on the latest version of the Android OS or are updated on it.

Screen, body and battery

By the size of the Alcatel OT-997D screen, we were assigned to a segment ergonomic models with a convenient body size. See for yourself, here is TFT-screen with diagonal 4.3″.

Dimensions of the screen dictate to us and the size of the case. At Alcatel OT-997D the case turned out very thick — 11 mm. Today you can easily choose and buy a new smartphone with a very thin case. The battery in this model has a capacity 1 800 mAh.

Main camera and selfie camera

Let′s briefly describe the cameras in Alcatel OT-997D. The main camera got 8 MP and it is not double, but usual with one module. If you want to buy smartphone with dual camera, then goto in our catalog.

Frontcamera on 0.3 MP. Do not say that this is very much, is in our catalog selfie smartphones, whose frontcamera will be an order of magnitude better.

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 2-core on the chipset Mediatek MT6577. RAM 1 GB.

Built-in memory for storing different data (photo, video, applications, music, etc.) here 4 GB. 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 OT-997D 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 OT-997D: buy or not to buy?

If you are looking for a camera phone, then this is not the model that suits you. If you need a smartphone with a huge touch screen, then this is not the model you are looking for. If you are looking for selfie smartphone (smartphone with a very cool front camera for shooting selfie), then this is not the model you need to buy.

Let′s step back from the lyrics and talk about money. Selling Alcatel OT-997D will begin in September 2012 at a price of $280. There are analogues of this model from its price segment “Below average smartphones from $200 to $300”, you can choose any smartphone for the same money.

We recommend buying a new smartphone only from trusted sellers. And preferably before buying the phone hold in your hand, to feel the dimensions of his hand and look at all of its external signs (build quality and materials). Then turn it on and check the touch screen (there should be no “broken” pixels, color gradient), open several built-in applications to assess the speed and smoothness of the interface. Be sure to launch the “Camera” application and take a few photos and videos, then view them (there should be no artifacts or traces of dust on the lens or glass).

We picked up these models at a similar price.
