Alcatel Onyx Quick Review, Specs/Features & Price


This Alcatel Onyx, released in the month of January 2019 didn’t fully have the glory of 4G smartphones of 2019. It transmits glory of 2018 4G smartphones and came on the horizon when the glory of smartphones was been raised higher. But even then, there are a few features which young people may love in this nicely built smartphone. This smartphone came with lesser body weight, small size but not too small, and everything else is a little cutback but not that bad. Let’s take a careful but brief look at this smartphone.

Design and Display of Alcatel Onyx

While there is no indication of waterproof technology in the Alcatel Onyx device, we see that the dimensions are 68.8 x 146.35 x 8.3 mm. It weighs just 130 grams and that appears to be very lightweight. This phone has no waterproof tech so far. But it came with display protection.


The display also shows IPS LCD 5.5 inches of capacitive touchscreen of 16 million colors. 720 x 1440 pixel resolution is seen at the display, 293 ppi pixel density, Dragontrail Glass 6 and all impressive display features you can expect from a good budget phone.

Camera Features

There are two cameras at the rear here in the Alcatel Onyx. The most popular camera is the main camera which sits to the rear as a 13 MP and another 2 MP lenses. However, the selfie camera comes as 5 MP camera feature, enriched with components. Other nice features include auto focus, continuous shooting, HDR, panorama, and others like that.

Hardware and Software

Also, MediaTek 6739 is the chipset in the Alcatel Onyx and it comes with 64-bit technology, while the phone runs on Android OS v8.1 Oreo. Furthermore, the device comes with the CPU known as ARM Cortex-A53, 1500 MHz, Cores- 4, while the GPU is PowerVR GE8100. This performance is balanced with the OS and the battery inside the phone.

Storage Capacity and Sensors

Alcatel Onyx arrives with 2GB of RAM which can’t be expanded. At the internal storage side there is 32GB and that can be boosted externally with a microSD card up to 128GB. Sensors include fingerprint, accelerometer, compass, light, and proximity.

Network and Connectivity

Good to see that this Alcatel Onyx phone is 4G Android capacity. Does it maintain 3G and 2G? Of course! Apart from the 4G Android phone running with high variant speeds of LTE, other components are Wi-Fi, hotspot, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS, GLONASS, USB, headphone jack, and other features.

Battery Power

Powering the Alcatel Onyx is a non-removable Li-Po 3000 mAh battery. It comes without wireless charging and without fast charging. This battery is able to provide power for barely 24 hours and a little more.


Price and Availability

Alcatel Onyx smartphone official price is approximately $119. That was the pice at which it came anew. However, I can’t say how much it will cost you by the time you decide to buy it. Onyx is readily available for purchase in select stores online.
