The ALCATEL ONETOUCH Fierce 2 is definitely not one of the high-end Android devices. The Fierce 2 does run Android 4.4 but seems to suffer from slow 4G speeds and again with poor camera quality. They rub it in with what many call a poorly or dimly lit screen. If price alone is your motivating factor you will find the Alcatel OneTouch Fierce 2 one of the lowest cost Android devices. Even at the bottom-line pricing – we’d probably suggest the Motorola Moto G or the Samsung Galaxy Avant for a better bottom-dollar experience. You can pick up the Alcatel OneTouch Fierce 2 at $126.
While we rip on the specs of the OneTouch Fierce 2 – it does come with a quad-core processor, Android 4.4 and a 5-inch screen. So – while it might be an entry-level Android device – it does sport some of the specs a lot of users are looking for.

The Fierce 2 is a decent sized device, although it is heavy. It weighs in at 149 grams and while it is easy to grip it’s not exactly the most comfortable device to hold in your hand. On the top right spine of the device you’ll find the volume rocker as well as the power/lock button. A bit down the same side you find the microsd and SIM card slots. As we mentioned before – the screen size is 5 inches but the full dimensions are 5.6 x 2.8 0.39-inch – so if you have small hands it might be a bit difficult to use one-handed. Most people probably won’t have any issue holding or handling the device.
The screen, while 5 inches, doesn’t pack a lot of visual punch. It’s a 960×540 pixel resolution and even at full brightness doesn’t really provide a fantastic visual display. The viewing angles for this device are extremely narrow and it’s not recommended that you try to use the device in strong sunlight.
One place some users might find a little shine is in the OS. Alcatel shows some restraint when it comes to dressing up the 4.4 KitKat OS. They still manage to give an Alacatel experience without interfering too much with the Android experience.
When it comes to the Fierce 2‘s cameras – quality isn’t one of the talking points. It comes with a 5MP camera but does have some settings like HDR and Panorama and even burst. So there are some options for the camera – just not a lot of quality when it comes to your capture image.
Sadly – even with the few positives when’ve previously mentioned – the phone doesn’t really perform all that well. The phone is listed as supporting HSPA+ 4G (which some argue is just 3G that’s called 4G) but does not support LTE. It also didn’t rank too well on any app we saw it tested on. Speedtest.net, etc.

If the lowest cost Android device is what you’re after – the Alcatel OneTouch Fierce 2 is probably the device for you. If you’re willing to spend just a few dollars more – you can get a far better experience with something like the Motorola Moto G or the Samsung Galaxy Avant.
