It also uses Quad Core 1.3 GHz processor that able to deliver fast performance on opening and running all kind of application.

Combine it with 8 GB internal memory that can be expand to 32 GB more space with a micro SD card, this is a promising smartphone. The only thing that was lack is the RAM, which is only 1 GB, pretty small compare to other smartphone that using similar OS and processor.

What makes this phone considered as mid range phone is not based on its processor and OS, but more to the feature that it offer. Start with the camera, which surprisingly only boast a 2 MP camera. That is a pretty low resolution for such a modern smartphone and it seems very unbalanced with the up to date processor and OS that it use.

  1. I just bought this phone about 2 weeks ago and according to both it’s included documentation and it’s display this is a 4G capable phone. When the signal strength is full it will proudly display 4G beside the signal strength meter for the cellular connection.

    • I just picked this up for My Daughter. She’s 11 and it’s her first phone. And your correct that it is a 4G phone.

  2. The Pixi Unite A466BG phone is next to impossible to find a hard shell or soft rubber case for the phone. you can only find a case that is a pouch or a wallet style case cover. This phone is for a young boy so the wallet style is not a good choice and does not protect the phone. If anyone knows of a phone case compatible with this model please provide the website. Much appreciation.

    • Amazon has a fair selection of cases, covers, screen protectors. I put a soft plastic case on mine. Wal-Mart and Best Buy carry this phone, cases and covers should be on line if not instore.
      You can trial Amazon prime if shipping seems high.
      I got a “special” case, screen protector, mini stylus package for $10, do not see it now though.

      • I got a rubber case for mine on ebay for $2.99, it’s perfect but it’s from China so it takes a while to ship.

  3. Be forwarned. This phone is made by Alcatel who refuses to provide any technical support for. They tell you to go to Tracphone and they are pretty poor for technical support. My problem has been with transferring files from a laptop to the phone. The instructions in the manual cannot be followed exactly as you can’t do what they tell you to do.

    I got the system to work by spending about 3 hours of internet research and hacking into the operating system. A few days later file transfer no longer working. Got it to work again after about 1/2 hour of setting changes. Today it does not work again and I’ve had no luck whatsoever to get it to work. Very very frustrated.

  4. This phone is NOT as durable as it may seem (cheap usually = plastic digitizer)

    I dropped it and the screen shattered.
    Turns out it’s a glass screen.

  5. I bought this expecting it would 8gb of internal memory. It has only 4.99gb? Why the difference? Does everybody else Alcatel Pixi Unite A466BG show only 4.99gb, not 8gb it says in reviews?

  6. I have the Tracfone Alcatel Pixi Unite. Yes, I too have 4.99 GB internal storage. Oddly, I cannot find the microSD slot, and have looked thoroughly. Any thoughts on this missing spec?

  7. My Pixi is a good basic TF i like that when i turn the mobile data off it doesn’t leak. Another TF i have still leaks data if i shut off mobile data and restrict background data.
    The Pixi also lets me write long texts in MMS format if i add a subject line, up to 10 texts length which saves text message costs. Some phones only allow MMS conversion on texts if a file is attached or if i reach six texts length while writing it auto switches to MMS.
    The text app allows me to use a photo to set the backdrop theme for texting. I wasn’t able to download the Yahoo mail app but i was able to put Google Voice on it and get a phone number to use over WiFi.
    Hangouts and Drive are other useful apps i use on this phone. It has limited storage internally but an expansion card helps. It’s a good basic smartphone for people with dainty fingers. Mine is TMFL.
