Are you looking for a dependable Android smartphone that doesn’t put a hole in your wallet? You might want to consider getting the Alcatel One Touch Fierce and One Touch Evolve that has been available last month at T-Mobile but is now available at MetroPCS. Both devices cost cheaper at MetroPCS with the Fierce priced at $99 ($149 at T-Mobile) while the Evolve costs $59 ($79 at T-Mobile).
The availability of both models at MetroPCS is no surprise since T-mobile owns MetroPCS. Both devices are available to consumers without any long term contracts. Consumers can choose to pair their device with any of the plans the company is offering. One of the best plans available is the $40 a month plan which already comes with unlimited talk and text, with 500 MB of high speed data. You can opt to have 2.5 GB of high speed data with the $50 plan or have unlimited high speed data for $60 a month.
This model is aimed at budget consumers looking for a solid device. It has a quad core processor combined with 1 GB of RAM that allows for a near flawless user experience. The 4.5-inch qHD display is bright enough to make images sharp and text easy to read.
One interesting thing to note about this device is that its speaker is surprisingly loud. You will be able to use this device to play your favorite tunes at respectable volumes.
The drawback to this model though is its lack of LTE support. It also has a lackluster camera that takes lackluster photos.

The Evolve is a wallet friendly device that has a compact design and offers a solid Android experience. This is best for those who are shifting from a featurephone to a smartphone.
The specs of this device are comparable to most low-cost Android devices with nothing really special to mention. In terms of performance this isn’t a multimedia powerhouse. Its 3G only connectivity also means that connecting to the Internet is not blazingly fast.
