It is basically like having a super computer in your pockets. However, what if you don’t need all that?

Or what if you are someone who is new to the smartphone world and need something simple to use.
Enter the Alcatel One Touch Orange Klif, a joint venture between a Chinese company TCL and the French telecom giant Orange. This phone aims to give you the simplest smartphone experience at the lowest price. So what is it about this phone that makes it so good and so cheap? Read on to find out
The Orange Klif measures 112.20 x 62.00 x 11.90 that is a very small phone. If you have big hands, you might very well be able to hide it in your hands. The phone looks like something you might see from a decade or two ago when phones were still phones and not “smart.” The phone looks very simple. It has a screen on the front with a home button at the bottom. The phone has quite a lot of bezel, but what else would you expect from a phone at that price. A single audio jack on the top and a micro USB in the bottom. The rear has a camera with a flash and a speaker grille at the bottom. The volume rocker and power button are on the right side. The phone takes two micro SIM cards and has a single micro SD slot.
The screen is a 3.5 inch TFT capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 320x480 pixels. It does what a basic touchscreen is supposed to do. Colors are fine and bright. The screen is responsive, and basically, it gets the job done.
If you are tired of running Android, and you can’t afford an iOS, then this phone is perfect for you. It runs a new kind of OS called the Firefox OS. Firefox OS is the no nonsense kind of OS that is simple and does what an OS is supposed to do. It has no app drawer or any other feature for that matter. Apps are few and developers are expected to put in a lot of efforts to help make the OS more functional, but as of now that hasn’t happened. The interface is simple and will not take much time to understand and get used to. The browsing experience is one of the best in this phones, as the OS revolves a lot around Firefox. It has a Dual-core MediaTek chipset with a speed of 1 GHz and 256 MB RAM. Performance wise, the phone doesn’t lag, and it runs smoothly, and you can switch between apps easily, which is better than most medium range smartphones. The phone comes with 512MB of internal storage that can be bumped up to 32 GB with a micro SD card.
The phone has a 2 MP primary shooter. It takes pictures quite well, and the flash helps it a bit in low light photography but don’t expect too much from it. The camera has geo-tagging features too. Taking casual pictures is ok. The video recording isn’t that bad either. Considering the price, the phone has a decent camera. It doesn’t have a secondary camera, though..
Regarding multimedia, it has an FM radio and a photo viewer, and that is pretty much it. The phone also has an accelerometer. The speaker is loud and but distorts sounds when played at the max volume. The call quality is loud and clear.
The phone has a 1300 mAh battery that gives it a 2G talk time of 7 hours and a standby time of 380 hours. It will be more than enough to last you a day and maybe even two depending on how you use it. The phone can connect to 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and hotspot.
The phone is perfect for first-time smartphone users who are looking for a cheap handset before moving on to something else. It is also good for senior citizens who need a basic handset with a simple UI that is easy to use. You can also use the phone as a replacement for your standard handset. In some aspects, the phone out performs and out delivers some entry level smartphones. There are still some kinks in the UI that needs to be worked out, as the app store. Other than that, there aren't many problems with the phone.WHAT WE LIKED
