The Alcatel OneTouch Hero 2 is a "phablet" for the cost-conscious.
The 6-inch Alcatel OneTouch Hero 2 has a stylus, an octa-core processor, and some impressive camera specs. It also lets you take notes and multitask with a split screen function.
The stylus slides securely into a slot on the phone's bottom left side.
With rounded corners and a fairly slim, flat shape, the Hero 2 looks like your generic black handset.
A 13-megapixel shooter on the back and 5-megapixel camera on the front encapsulate Alcatel's ambition with this device.
