Straight Talk Alcatel OneTouch Pixi Pulsar Specs
The Alcatel OneTouch Pixi Pulsar is a 4G LTE Android 4.4 KitKat smartphone that operates on AT&T network. The phone features 1.3GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage and microSD card slot for memory expansion up to 32GB. Even though the processor is dual-core, 512MB of RAM is just not enough for more demanding apps. In some cases, user can experience lagging even on simple operations like browsing the web. On the other hand, call quality is great, so for users who mainly use the phone to talk and text and occasionally use internet, Pixi Pulsar is a great choice.
The phone has a 4.0-inch TFT touch screen display and 2-megapixels rear camera with video recording. For connectivity, besides 4G LTE, the phone uses WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 and A-GPS/GPS. A 1440mAh removable lithium-ion battery powers the Pixi Pulsar and provides up to 7 hours of talk time and up to 9 days of standby time. The dimensions of the phone are width 2.54, depth 0.47, height 4.79-inch and it weighs 4.16 oz.
