The Alcatel onetouch pixi charm lte is a 4G LTE phone that has a 4.5-inch display panel and runs on Android 4.4 KitKat. It has 2GB of onboard storage and a microSD card slot for up to 32GB of additional storage space. It comes with a 5MP rear-facing camera and a 0.3MP front-facing camera. Its 1.5GHz quad-core processor gives it a decent amount of speed, although it is not as fast as more newer phones.
The phone does come with all of the standard features that you would expect from a smartphone like voice dictation, caller ID, and MMS messaging. It has a battery that is decent enough to get you through the day and it is also water resistant. The screen is small which can be good or bad depending on your needs. For some people a smaller screen can make it easier to type on the keyboard. The Pixi Glitz also lacks a front-facing camera, but you won't find that on many smartphones. It is an affordable smartphone that should work well for most people who only need a simple phone for calling and texting.
