Looking for a cheap smartphone without contract? AT&T’s GoPhone prepaid service is the place where you can find one. And starting today, you have one more device to choose from as the carrier added Alcatel OneTouch C1 Android phone to its roster of inexpensive smartphones. Available in select National Retailers in your local area, the OneTouch C1 costs just $59.99 without any long-term agreements. Let’s take a look why the phone is so cheap.
Alcatel OneTouch C1 Android Smartphone
Being an entry-level phone, the OneTouch C1 definitely won’t scare off first-timers with fancy features and advanced hardware. In fact, the handset is as simple and easy to use as a smartphone can be. And it’s compact and lightweight too, tipping the scales at just 3.53 ounces.
The OneTouch C1 features a 3.5-inch screen with HVGA resolution and is powered by a dual-core 1GHz processor. The phone comes with 512MB of RAM and not too impressive 4GB of internal memory. Don’t worry about running out of room for your content, though, as the device’s storage is expandable via microSD slot compatible with up to 32GB cards.
Other features include a 2-megapixel rear camera with 4x zoom and a 1,400 mAh battery which should provide up to 7 hours of talk time and up to 540 hours of standby time. The handset ships with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean on board.
With straightforward design and modest hardware, the Alcatel OneTouch C1 certainly won’t satisfy very demanding users. However, it appears to be a pretty decent offering for those who want to taste Android flavor and see how it feels to use a touchscreen device or try multi-tasking support for simultaneously running apps, games and browsing the internet. Moreover, Alcatel is one of the fastest growing top ten mobile phone manufacturers globally which can be another incentive for undecided potential buyers.
