Quick Look: Alcatel Streak announced—back to basics

You don’t really need powerful processors, boatloads of RAM, and other fancy schmancy features if all you want to do on a smartphone is browse the net, access social media websites, call and text your friends, take simple photos, and play the occasional Candy Crush. It struts very modest but still reliable specs, including a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor clocked at 1.1 GHz, an Adreno 304 GPU, 1 GB RAM, 8 GB of expandable storage, 5 and 2 MP shooters, and a 1780 mAh battery. The innards also run on the Android Marshmallow 6.0 OS for smooth overall performance during basic tasks. Better yet, it struts LTE connectivity, a feature rarely seen in a phone at this price point.
