Alcatel OneTouch Hero 2 

Released September, 2014
  • Android 4.4
  • 4G
  • 6"
  • Octa core 2 GHz
Aside from its gargantuan 6” size, the display of the OneTouch Hero 2 doesn't offer anything crazy by today's standards – it glows with a 1080 x 1920 resolution, which provides a 367 PPI density – things look crisp and viewing text-rich media is a pleasurable experience.

In terms of connectivity, the phone is well equipped – with Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, a 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi radio, and an LTE Cat 4-capable (150/50 Mbit/s) cellular one.

Reviews Word on the street for the Alcatel OneTouch Hero 2


6.5
It is king in terms of screen-to-body ratio in its class, and that definitely matters when we are talking about gargantuan displays.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Screen

The color temperature is fairly close to the reference values at 7100 K, suggesting the display has a slight bluish tint.
by PhoneArena (Nov, 2014)
The dialer app offers an easy-to-arrange favorites screen and a detailed call history, which is always a nice thing.
by PhoneArena (Nov, 2014)
Its keypad can also be set for a one-handed mode, which shrinks it to one side of the screen, giving the user better thumb-access.
by PhoneArena (Nov, 2014)

Apps

The music player offers nothing crazy – songs are arranged in an alphabetical fashion and are easy to find.
by PhoneArena (Nov, 2014)
The stock SMS app is pretty much the standard Android ordeal.
by PhoneArena (Nov, 2014)
We like the attachment menu, as it is not short on options – from pictures, to video, audio, calendar events, or even a slide show – the only option it lacks to round it off is location sharing.
by PhoneArena (Nov, 2014)

Video

Video playback looks crisp and the 6” screen provides for a pleasurable viewing experience.
by PhoneArena (Nov, 2014)
It allows the user to undock the video and keep it in a floating window, while working on something else in the background and this is pretty much the entirety of its fancy features.
by PhoneArena (Nov, 2014)
The video player is simplistic, but gets the job done just fine.
by PhoneArena (Nov, 2014)

Audio

The phone offers a special Hi-Fi mode, which works only when the headphones are plugged in.
by PhoneArena (Nov, 2014)
And, while the Sidekick 2 delivered a noticeably poorer-sounding voice with a pronounced digitalization and audio tearing, it was still not so bad that the opposite side wouldn't be able to understand us.
by PhoneArena (Nov, 2014)
Alcatel promises that it enhances the audio playback to lossless fidelity, though, upon testing, we only felt a volume boost.
by PhoneArena (Nov, 2014)

Controls

Its buttons are far less wobbly and, albeit they still lack travel, feel more pleasurable to use.
by PhoneArena (Nov, 2014)
In fact, we quite liked the way its controls are placed and were often torn, when deciding which of the browsers to use.
by PhoneArena (Nov, 2014)
The buttons are clicky enough, but feel shallow and wobbly.
