On the market for a really cheap Android phone for Metro PCS prepaid service? If so, then we have something that may catch your attention. Known for delivering mid-price smartphones, Alcatel joins forces with Metro PCS to deliver a phone for less than $30. Being an extremely affordable offering the Alcatel TRU offers budget-friendly balance of features and performance for $29 after all available rebates. All those interested in the phone may get it at Metro PCS online store starting today.
Metro PCS offers the Alcatel TRU Android phone priced under $30 after all rebates. At such an extremely low price tag you will get a decent phone with 4G LTE speeds and no contracts.
Although normally the Alcatel TRU cost something round $109, right now it can be yours for only $29, including a whooping 73% discount. What’s more, the price drop doesn’t consist of one, but of two separate rebates that may be combined together. First of all you get an instant rebate decreasing the TRU’s original pricing by $20, then when you add the Mail-in rebate you can slash the price by another $60, which after summing up gives us a hard-to-resist $80 discount. Note that, as usual, the pricing after rebate doesn’t include sales tax.
Specs-wise the Alcatel TRU for Metro PCS isn’t surely a phone proper to tech demanding customers. As it doesn’t only run two-generation old Android 5.0 Lollipop, but it is also driven by a far from being considered top-notch quad-core 1.1GHz Snapdragon processor coupled with basic 1 GB RAM and only 8GB of thankfully expandable internal storage. Another key features include a 5MP primary camera, 2MP selfie snapper on the front, 5-inch FWVGA display and a 2,000 mAh battery claimed to deliver a full day of usage.
No matter how disappointing the presented above specs may look like, the phone offers one strong point (except its pricing – naturally), namely 4G LTE connectivity. This together with a price tag of $29 should help the device gain masses of devoted enthusiasts. On the other hand, however, for only extra $20 more you can get the Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL also from Metro PCS which is not only bigger but also more powerful than TRU.
