Impresses us with a high screen-to-body ratio

from PhoneArena

The Alcatel OneTouch Hero 2 sounds like a powerful phone and a great budget-friendly, stylus-equipped phablet, which should appeal to those who are in the market for such a device. It costs around ~$430 (€350), and for this sort of money, one would expect mostly smooth operation. Unfortunately, choppy performance and a next-to-unusable stylus detracts from the experience to the point where one may wish to look for other options...

The Alcatel OneTouch Hero 2 sounds like a powerful phone and a great budget-friendly, stylus-equipped phablet, which should appeal to those who are in the market for such a device. It costs around ~$430 (€350), and for this sort of money, one would expect mostly smooth operation. Unfortunately, choppy performance and a next-to-unusable stylus detracts from the experience to the point where one may wish to look for other options.

If you absolutely want a 6" phone that does not break the bank – sure, the OneTouch Hero 2 is a viable option. It is king in terms of screen-to-body ratio in its class, and that definitely matters when we are talking about gargantuan displays. Its performance does not completely break user experience, but is an unpleasant distraction. The camera is good for the phone's class and the display is crisp, even though its dull-ish colors and unfavorable contrast are a bit of a disappointment.

Looking at possible alternatives – the Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 comes for around $50 more, has a smaller battery, less RAM, an inferior resolution, and an 8 MP camera. The Huawei Ascend Mate 2, however, has a 6.1” display at 720p resolution, 13 MP main and 5 MP selfie camera, an adequate 1.6 GHz Snapdragon 400 CPU, 2 GB of RAM, a massive 3,900 mAh battery, and costs around $350 – this may be worth looking at, before taking the plunge.

If you absolutely must have a stylus-equipped phone – just go for the Galaxy Note line. A Note 3 Neo may run you north of $500 (though, you should be able to get it for much less nowadays), but the OneTouch Hero 2 is in no way equivalent to it, despite it trying to imitate Samsung's features.

A fantastic phone in terms of its design, display and functionality

Overall the Hero 2 is a great device. The design makes it seem less of a huge phone than it really is. The 6 inch display is clear, sharp and a pleasure to use.

Overall the Hero 2 is a great device. The design makes it seem less of a huge phone than it really is. The 6 inch display is clear, sharp and a pleasure to use. The processor package is fast, and the UI is always responsive. The 13.1 megapixel camera is a joy to use, and the picture quality is good for a mobile phone. The software is nice including the pre-bundled apps, while the custom UI only adds to the overall experience. The only reason the phone didn’t score much higher, is the battery. If you are the kind of person that is always near a USB port (for example at work) then the battery life won’t be a problem, but if you need your phone to last a long time between charges then this might not be the phone for you.
