At under £70, the Alcatel OneTouch Pixi 7 could be the perfect tablet if you're on a tight budget this Christmas, and at just 285g it's also one of the lightest Android slates around. Just how many corners has Alcatel cut to hit that price though?
Inside you’ll find a triple-core 1.2GHz processor, a 2840mAh battery that’s good for 4 hours of browsing time, and built-in WiFi connectivity. Snapping potential comes courtesy of two decidedly meagre cameras, both measuring up at 0.3-megapixels front and back.
Bearing a 7-inch 960 x 540 (qHD) TFT display, its washed out looks combined with its less than detailed display makes it a scary thing to behold. Sheesh, even tilting it slightly causes heavy distortion – resulting in colors appearing extremely washed out in tone.
The tablet runs Android 4.4 KitKat, which isn't the most bang up to date version, but very much recent enough, given the price.
The Alcatel PIXI 7 tablet price is on par with the likes of the Tesco Hudl etc, the tablet competition is fierce this year but seeing the Alcatel PIXI 7 with a price tag of only $110 we have to call this a bargain Android tablet.
