Boost Dex phone: Full in-depth review
How usable is the sub-$100 Alcatel Pixi 4 Android smartphone?
Only a 2,000mAh battery is included but the low-powered processor and small screen meant that it easily lasted a full day and could even stretch into two under low usage. We did find that it often took a long time to charge up though and that different combinations of cables and chargers made a big difference.
If you’re a multimedia fan or like playing casual games, you’ll find this phone frustrating. However, it’s a sub-$100 Android smartphone and will cheerfully let you interact with emails, browse the web and do social media things just fine.
The next best budget phone we’ve tested is its big brother, the six-inch Alcatel A3 XL, but that looks expensive at $80 more.
