An Android phone with a fingerprint sensor and a big screen for under $100? It's possible, but you'll need to make a few compromises.
The mid-range squeeze may well and truly be changing what you get for a low price in the smartphone world, but at least one manufacturer is keen to stamp its name all over value, as Alcatel demonstrates.
The price of smartphones has dropped, and with it the age when phones first enter the lives of children. What phone should they get for Christmas?
Equipping your kids with a smartwatch is about to become something families will be able to do, and without severe cost, as Alcatel builds a kid-friendly wearable.
Even though big phones are popular, the prices don't always have to be equally large, and the latest from Alcatel aims to keep everything but the screen down in size.
