Alcatel TRU phone comes to MetroPCS for $29

With Android Lollipop and 8GB of storage, the TRU's feature set runs true to its budget price.

Mid-price phone maker Alcatel joins forces with carrier MetroPCS for a budget-friendly package price of $29 on the new Alcatel TRU -- after a couple of rebates of its $109 manufacturer price.

The TRU's feature set runs true to its budget price. It uses Android 5 (the current version is 7, though the most popular version is still 5), and hardware specifications include support for 4G/LTE, a low-resolution 5-inch display, 5-megapixel rear camera, 8GB internal memory (expandable with a microSD card) and a quad-core 1.1GHz Snapdragon processor. Alcatel claims the battery will last a full day.

It's smaller and the hardware is less powerful than the not-much-more expensive Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL if you get that from MetroPCS.
