Why this smartphone is built for you
One Touch Sesame 2010
Alcatel's One Touch Sesame 2010 gives you access to social media essentials such as Facebook and Twitter at an affordable price. It is aimed at the pre-teen market and those looking for social media connectivity without having to tie themselves in to a monthly contract.
This phone has a 2.4 inch screen that displays in 167PPI (Pixels Per Inch). The average PPI for a modern smartphone is 255.
The Sesame 2010 has a 2MP camera and can record video in up to QVGA (320x240). It does not have a front facing camera.
Performance is provided by a 0.2 GHz single core processor and 0.6GB RAM. Based upon its processor speed and memory, this phone receives an unmudlr performance rating of 19 out of 100.
The Sesame 2010 has an estimated battery life of around 6 hours. The average smartphone battery life is around 10 hours. It has a battery capacity of 750mAh (MilliAmp hours). The average battery capacity is 1950mAh. This phone has a removable battery.
1GB (Gigabyte) is equal to roughly 500 pictures or 250 songs. The Sesame 2010 comes with 0.128GB internal storage and an expandable memory card slot which makes it possible for you to add a further 32GB external storage.
The Sesame 2010 has Bluetooth which enables it to communicate with other Bluetooth devices (such as a Bluetooth handsfree kit). This phone does not have 3G or Wi-Fi, unlike many of its competitors.
The Alcatel 2010 has an FM radio and an MP3 player. It is able to integrate with social media via the built in Facebook and Twitter Apps, has access to its own app store and is available in a large number of colours. The advantage of the 2010's clamshell design is twofold.
1. It makes it more difficult to 'pocket dial' one of your contacts.
2. Closing the lid will automatically end your current phone call.
Both of these features could help to prevent you from wasting your valuable credit unnecessarily.
This phone comes in a dual SIM version (called the One touch 2010D) that enables you to pop in two SIM cards at once and choose the one you want to use. This comes in handy if you are planning to use your phone abroad extensively or want to keep your business and personal calls separate.
This is a good, basic phone that provides some of the additional functionality of a smartphone at an affordable price. Its usefulness as a social media device is somewhat compromised by its lack of 3G and Wi-Fi, but there is much to be said for a phone that enables you to Tweet and update your status for less than the cost of one month on your average contract.
