The Alcatel 6062w was launched by the French brand mid-2018. The device is powered by a little-known processor, the P23 by MediaTek. With a RAM capacity of 2GB and total internal storage of 32GB, let’s see if you should or should not invest in it.

To start with let’s talk about the physical structure of the Alcatel 7 6062w. The device weighs 6.17oz (175g). In my personal experience, this is on the heavier side of the weight spectrum.
Simply put, I like my mobile devices to weigh less than 5.9oz (170g). There are devices like the Google Pixel 4a which is a solid phone released in August 2020 with almost the same screen size as the Alcatel 7 but it weighs less than 5.3oz (150g).
The physical dimensions of the phone are pretty standard for a 6.0” smartphone. The device has a full plastic casing while the front display has glass made from Ashai, an Indian glass company. On the left side, you’ll find a SIM and MicroSD card tray while all the buttons are located on the right side.
The device has a USB-C port at the bottom which is quite rare on budget phones, especially devices released back in 2018. The headphone jack is located at the top and not at the bottom.
The device also has an IR blaster which is a solid feature on a budget device like this.
The 6-inch IPS display has a resolution of 1080 x 2160-pixels and a PPI of 402 which is quite impressive. Most smartphones have PPI of less than 400 and for a budget brand like Alcatel to hit 400+ PPI is a big deal. The display has an aspect ratio of 18:9.
In terms of the system, the device runs on Android Oreo(version 8.0) which was released in 2017, just a year before the Alcatel 7 dropped.
Let’s talk about the processor. MediaTek is not something you’ll see every day in smartphones. Snapdragon is the most common mobile processor but Alcatel has gone a different way. The MediaTek Helio P23 MT6763T was released in 2017 and has a 16nm architecture.
To support this chipset, the smartphone has 2GB RAM and 32GB storage capacity (expandable using a MicroSD card). The lithium Polymer battery also has a good back up and capacity of 4000mAH.
Alcatel adds an extra lens to the back camera with a 12 + 2MP and a front cam of 8MP.
Connectivity is not an issue with this phone as it supports all available network bands and has all the sensors required in a smartphone including a fingerprint sensor at the back.
Now that we’ve wrapped up our Alcatel 7 review, you can decide if this device might be worth your investment.
