The Alcatel brand has a quite interesting history behind it but it’s not stopping them from coming up with devices meant to be at par with the higher end names in the industry today. Following their launch of the Alcatel Idol 4 and the Alcatel Idol 4s, available both in the US and in other parts of the world, Alcatel is yet again causing a stir in the entry-level range with their introduction of Alcatel Fierce 4 to the US market.

In today’s gadget world where bigger seems to be better, Fierce 4 will never feel left out. This is a 5.5-inch beast, offering a large-screen for those who don’t like watching their favorite media on small screens. With the rumors that this will be a more extremely affordable handset than their earlier flagship phones, it’s no wonder that Fierce 4 is being anticipated by users who want a big screen but are on a budget.


On the outside, you will get a 1280x720 resolution display right under a sheet of Dragontrail glass, which happens to be an uncommon material considering that the industry prefers Gorilla Glass.


On top of the display of Fierce 4 sits its 5-megapixel front shooter with an 84-degree wide-angle lens perfect for taking group selfies. On the back, there is an 8 megapixel shooter with sensor.

Under the Hood

Alcatel Fierce 4 features a 1.1GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 chipset. This also comes with 2GB RAM complimented by the 16GB native storage expandable to as much as 32GB through its dedicated MicroSD card slot.


This new addition to the Alcatel line is being powered by a 2,500mAh battery, which, once combined with lower resolution display and its low-power processor, is more than enough to let you use this phone from morning till night.

Operating System

Fierce 4 is running Android Marshmallow straight out of the box and there are still no clues whether it will get a Nougat update anytime soon.

However, you have to remember that with all these things on paper, it is pretty obvious that Fierce 4 is an entry-level device at most. It means that if you are looking for the greatest and the latest, you might be better off if you will turn your head somewhere else.

What is more enticing is its price tag of $70, which serves to be the determining factor if you are after a secondary phone or you are planning to give a loved one a first smartphone.

This is a shockingly low price but expect that there will be specs trade-offs for the phone to be more affordable. Good example is its 720-pixel screen resolution, something that is too low for its expansive display. There is also the lower powered processor, and the 8-megapixel camera.

While Alcatel Fierce 4 is being marketed for an affordable price, the cut down comes at a cost. But still, if you need an entry-level phone that is decent enough for casual use, then, this one is a great choice.
