If this octa core beast really costs $250 unlocked ... wow!

(yes you won't get nearly everrything but wonder if the price really is that low)




Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

Looks like some really nice competition for the Moto G at that price.

That'll be $250US, mind. No LTE or DC-HSPA+ is a bit naff, but interesting spec. Mediatek chips aren't historically very good, nice to see interesting product from a lesser-known OEM all the same.

Harvey Norman have been ranging a variety of Alcatel One Touch kit locally. The One Touch Scribe HD looks decent, though with the same caveats as above. It's the One Touch Hero & Idol Alpha that look most interesting, with the Alpha's design a standout.
