Thursday, May 25, 2017

Looking for an Android phone that doesn't look like other mid-range phones in its class? Take a look at the Alcatel SHINE Lite! It has a super solid build quality, decent specs and stunning looks!
With the Alcatel SHINE Lite, you get 2.5d Asahi dragontrail glass (similar to Gorilla Glass) both on front and back so no worries about your phone getting a scratch anytime soon!

On the back of the Alcatel SHINE Lite, you find the fingerprint scanner and the rear 13 megapixel camera with dual tone flash on the top left hand corner of the phone.
On the front of the Shine Lite, you find a white LED notification light, a speakerphone and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with LED flash.
The vivid 5-inch 720p (720 x 1280 pixels) screen display, which supports 5-Point multitouch, delivers a nice balance of picture sharpness and contrast.
The 5-Point multi touch feature means the screen display can recognize up to five of your fingers independently so you can control zooming and use the capacitive touch screen buttons all at the same time.
As far as the hardware, the Alcatel SHINE Lite features a quad-core MediaTek (MT6737) chipset with Quad-core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A53 and 2GB of RAM that provides a nippy user interface. 
You get 16GB of internal storage and up to 256GB of expandable storage (via microSD card), as well as Android 6.0 Marshmallow which has an interface very similar to stock Android

 The 2460 mAh rechargeable Li-on battery is non-removable, giving the SHINE Lite a small footprint with a slimline design and low weight (156 g/ 5.50 oz).
As far as functionality, the Alcatel SHINE Lite comes with the very cool fingerprint sensor feature, which is the same feature found on iPhone's Touch ID. The fingerprint reader allows you to lock and unlock your phone without having to use a PIN code.
You also get a nice array of apps accompanying the Shine Lite, as well as the all important camera that integrates a nifty application called Split Catcher. 
Split Catcher allows you to capture the scene with both front and rear cameras as well as capture up to for images to create a collage. Below are some screenshots of the camera settings:
