Top 10 Upcoming Smartphones 2017

One touch is all you need

Alcatel one touch announces the one touch ultra 995, the most advanced smartphone to be released by the brand.

Launching with the Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system (and will be upgradeable to 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich) gives you one-touch access to a full range of up-to-the-minute features including social networks, movies, music, the internet and the latest mobile payment technology (via optional NFC).

Slim and stylish, powered by a fast 1.4GHz processor, it’s everything you could want from a smart phone, at an affordable price.

The Alcatel OT-995 doesn’t come from the well established names in the industry like say Samsung, but you might be surprised that the french company Alcatel has been around for quite a while and definitely has the experience to make a respectable device.

Is this device such, though?

In the One Touch 995 Ultra (OT-995), Alcatel delivers a spacious 4.3-inch display for an extremely affordable price.

If you are hunting for specs, it looks like a bargain. But the bland design and aesthetically dull interface, make it a very utilitarian device even for its bargain price.

Are you all about the specs and should you overlook this?

We need to look into more detail before answering those big questions.

Design :

The Alcatel One Touch 995 Ultra won’t surprise anyone with its appearance. It looks and feels like just another smartphone from China - your typical plastic slab with rounded corners; it screams “ordinary” with every detail.

It’s not too thick at 0.39 inches (9.8mm), nor too heavy at 4.37 ounces, or 124 grams. It lays in the hand with a nice weight, though, and is comfortable to hold with the clean soft touch plastic back.

Also, the back cover is practical - the soft touch plastic won’t catch smudges. If we had to sum it up in a few words, those would be solid build and dull looks, utilitarian.

Beauty in One Touch

The one touch ultra 995 is pleasingly slim (just 9.75mm) and comes in a choice of soft touch or glossy finishes in black, spicy red, fuchsia, pure white, and black/white.

Alcatel one touch’s unique, stylish 3D user interface is easy to use and navigate and the carousel-style menu brings each option to life with 3D animation.

The front side, all encircled with plastic siding doesn’t impress.

The device comes with the four standard capacitive buttons for Gingerbread.

An issue we had is the buttons are lit unevenly, as if the designers didn't have the time to finalize the device.

Stay Connected to the World

Movies and the web look great on the beautifully sharp 4.3 inch capacitive touch screen with stunning 480x800-pixel resolution and 16m colours.

It comes with a 4GB micro SD memory card (however, this handset can hold a 32GB memory card) as standard giving you plenty of room for movies, music and more, plus there’s an FM radio with RDS and Shazam so you can identify mystery tracks. 

Also pre-loaded on to the handset is quick and responsive gaming with Asphalt 5 and Bebble included, or you can choose from the 450,000 games and apps available on Google Play.

And with AVG anti-virus software on board, it is protected from rogue apps.

Save all your important data to your own personal cloud, and you can sync and push your data to all your devices, instantly.

Social networking apps Facebook, Twitter, and Palringo chat groups are all pre-installed and ready to go. 

Use the micro Hdmi connection to transfer HD video and sound direct to an HD TV.

Or you can connect wirelessly using plug-and-play dlna.

The 5 megapixel camera comes with powerful LED flash, auto focus and touch focus, and it will record video at a pin-sharp 720p HD at 30fps.

There’s a vga camera on the front too for video calls.


The biggest highlight of the One Touch 995 Ultra is the 4.3-inch WVGA LCD capacitive display.

That resolution is definitely a great asset for the price and we were pleased with the brightness and quality of the display.

As on most LCD displays, whites look impressive, contrast is good and blacks look a bit on the gray side. Viewing angles are also decent with colors getting washed out slightly only at extreme angles.

There’s an outstanding line-up of apps already on board for you to explore; layar’s augmented reality tells you all you need to know about wherever you are, whether it’s the coolest night spot or the best restaurant.

Office suite allows you to view Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents, as well as view PDFs.

Battery Saver helps you to stretch the life of the battery by letting you cut the apps you’re not using.

Data Tracker keeps tabs on your data flow so you always know how much you’re spending.

TouchPal Keyboard allows you to type without taking your finger off the screen – it’s the future of text input.
