When it comes to a hot item for Christmas, I think about cell phones. Cell phones can often be a hassle though when you research the plans as well as the cost. It all depends what you want to use it for and who is going to use it. No two people are the same and often with cell contracts, we are left with something that we don’t need.

ALCATEL ONETOUCH Elevate, priced at $99.99 (plus tax) is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core processor and features a 2,000mAh battery. The ALCATEL ONETOUCH Elevate is an affordable, multipurpose smartphone. It delivers all the Android essentials with a large 4.5 inch touchscreen, fast 1.1 Ghz quad-core processor and dual cameras. Simple to use, the Elevate is a high-quality phone.

Now really is the right time to start your holiday shopping as for a limited time* only, you can get the Elevate for $19.99 (plus tax) at participating Boost Mobile exclusive retail stores and select independent wireless dealer locations nationwide.

Boost Mobile offers an answer to that issue. Offering a wide range of plans as well as phones, this company has the consumer in mind. They offer affordability with a reliable network. When I took a look at this company and the phones they had to offer, I knew I wanted to tell my readers about them. I love how Boost Mobile has so much to offer at such a low and affordable price. There is no carrier out there that comes even close to quality, service and price.

Key features:

  • Android 5.1 Lollipop: ALCATEL ONETOUCH Elevate features Android 5.1 Lollipop, providing users an enhanced multitasking experience, complete with the Google Now Launcher, which brings “OK Google” voice commands and content like local weather, directions and upcoming calendar alerts right to your home screen.
  • 4.5-inch FWVGA display: Perfectly portable compact form factor easily fits into purse or pocket, but still provides a large quality screen for staying connecting on-the-go.
  • 5-megapixel auto focus camera with LED flash and 2-megapixel front camera: Never miss a moment with Elevate’s 5MP camera, or enjoy video chatting or capturing the perfect selfie with the phone’s 2MP front camera.
  • 3G/4G LTE/Enhanced LTE3: ALCATEL ONETOUCH Elevate brings the power of LTE to the masses. Browse the Web, download a game or upload a photo with faster 4G LTE speeds.
  • Quad-core 1.1GHz processor: Powered by a quad-core processor, Elevate delivers smooth performance with low power consumption, so you can rise above whatever the day throws at you.

Often with pre-pay phones, you run into dropped calls or a less than desirable phone. That is not the case here. None of my calls were dropped when I used this and I encountered no issues. Living in Hawaii with limited 4G data I was very impressed that for the most part I had impressive 4G data with speeding internet speed. This phone was quite impressive. I’ve had my flaws with Android phone and there were no freezing issues, calls were crisp, clear, and top quality.

Something I was very intrigued about was the Growing Data! Boost Mobile is rewarding customers with what they want most, more high-speed data without paying a penny more. Customers can earn up to 3GB more high-speed data for their monthly plan by making on-time payments.

After a few weeks, I passed this phone on to my grandmother who has been looking to change carriers. She is 70 and not very tech-savvy. However, within just a few days she picked up all the features of this phone. She loves that she can do face-to-face conversations with her family out of state and enjoys checking her emails on-the-go. She also love that her bill is a whole lot cheaper! With Boost Mobiles $19.99/month plan and no contract or fees she is happier than I’ve seen her in years, when it comes to her phone plan!

If you are looking to get that special someone a cell phone, or even one of your children, I would highly recommend going with this one!

    My favorite thing to do on my Smartphone is to look for coupons or accumulate money from coupons

  4. Now that is a tough question. I like doing several things on my phone. I guess what I enjoy most would be reading about current events when I’m waiting somewhere – it really makes the time go by faster.
