1010 - £5
Why this smartphone is built for you
The Alcatel 10.10
The Alcatel 10.10 is arguably 'Britain's least expensive mobile phone'. It's a back to basics model designed to do two things:
1. Make calls
2. Send texts
This phone has a 1.8 inch screen that displays in 116PPI (Pixels Per Inch). The average PPI for a modern smartphone is 255.
This phone does not have a camera.
Based upon its processor speed and memory, this phone receives an unmudlr performance rating of 1 out of 100.
The 10.10 has an estimated battery life of around 7 hours. The average smartphone battery life is around 10 hours. It has a battery capacity of 400mAh (MilliAmp hours). The average battery capacity is 1950mAh. The battery on this phone is removable.
This phone comes in a dual SIM version (called the Alcatel 1011D) 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.
The 10.10 has large, illuminated buttons to make them easier to see in poor light. It comes with an FM radio, a 'torch' and the battery lasts for up to 10 days between charges (or 7 hours of continuous use).
If you want to text and make calls using a phone that you don't have to worry too much about dropping or losing, then you might want to consider the Alcatel 10.10. In an age where new mobile phones appear ever more complex and expensive, the 10.10 is refreshingly simple and, at £5, any criticisms that could be made of this device are pretty much irrelevant.
