Size up Alcatel's 5-inch OneTouch Fierce 2 (pictures)

For just about $130 off-contract, T-Mobile's Android 4.4 addition is one of the least expensive phones you can buy.

Second time around

T-Mobile's Alcatel OneTouch Fierce 2 is a second stab at a low-cost Android phone that sells for just above $100 all-in.

Smooth style

The matte soft-touch finish on the navy blue backing is a nice touch.

Performance woes

Sadly, the specs just don't stand up, from the 5-megapixel camera to 4G data speeds and low internal storage.

Top view

The phone's top edge is fairly spare, including only a headset jack. The sound quality of the speaker on its backside was good for streaming tunes.

Side view

While relatively slim, the Fierce 2 is a little weighty for its size, but not overbearingly so.

One last look

Although the phone's off-contract cost is compelling, there are better handsets to be had.
