What is the Alcatel OneTouch 20.45x?

The OneTouch 20.25x, which is a really weird name even by phone standards, is a feature phone, or what some might unkindly call a "dumb phone". It's basically used to make calls and send texts, like the phones of yore.

But there's a little more on offer than you might expect. Unlike most feature phones in this price range, the 20.45x supports 3G, meaning you can actually do some (very slow) web browsing, just like it was in the early 2000s.

Is the Alcatel OneTouch 20.45x a powerful phone?

Absolutely not. Not even close. It has a tiny 611MHz processor and 64MB of RAM, with 42MB of that user accessible. But that's all it needs.

The Alcatel OneTouch 20.45x is a phone with a bright, clear 2.4-inch screen that makes it easy to see contacts and read texts. It'll even display photos and, believe it or not, play videos. The screen has a resolution of 320x480 so don't think about settling in for a binge-watch session.

There's no storage to speak of apart from 42MB, and that 42MB will fill up fast. However, it does take Micro SD, up to 32GB in size.

How do I charge the Alcatel OneTouch 20.45x?

The Alcatel OneTouch 20.45x uses a Micro-USB charger. Its included 840mAh battery sounds tiny, but you'll get a lot of life out of it. Well, it is a tiny battery but the phone doesn't need a lot of power, so you can get 340 hours of standby time!

Does the Alcatel OneTouch 20.45x have a good camera?

No, but it does have a camera, which is almost a little surprising. The 2-megapixel rear camera will let you take quick snaps or even short video to send as attachments in text messages.

Is the Alcatel OneTouch 20.45x water resistant?

Oh heck no. Be very careful if you're using this on the toilet.

You can grab the Alcatel OneTouch 20.45x right now.
