Apart from that, the OneTouch C1 will allow one to enjoy more productivity thanks to multi-tasking support that will enable you to simultaneously run apps, games and even to browse the internet.

As for some of the hardware specifications that are found in the Alcatel OneTouch C1, they include an ultra-compact 3.5” HVGA touchscreen display, a 2MP camera at the back with 4x zoom capability, a lightweight design at just 3.53 ounces, a 1,400mAh battery that theoretically speaking, is able to last for up to 7 hours when it comes to talk time and up to 540 hours of standby time.
