Who says a big phone has to cost the moon? Alcatel's Fierce 4, a 5.5-inch beast, offers large-screen lovers a budget deal. Really budget. In the US, it sells for $69 with prepaid carrier MetroPCS. T-Mobile will sell it in the fall, but we don't have pricing yet.
That's a shockingly low price. And with it comes the typical specs trade-offs to make the phone more affordable. Like the 720-pixel screen resolution, which is low for an expansive display, an 8-megapixel camera and the lower-powered processor. This is a phone for first-timers, for casual users and for people who really just need an inexpensive phone.
