Alcatel OneTouch has thrown some interesting takes on hardware and software onto the market. One of the best mid-range smartphones of 2015? The Idol 3. Native screen video capture? The Go Play. A nose-to-the-grindstone budget Android tablet? The Pixi 3 (8), released last March. A nose-to-the-grindstone budget Windows tablet? Wait, what?

Windows 10 Mobile gets to stretch its hamstrings with not only a lunge at a large screen, but a reach down to a barebones spec sheet. With a Snapdragon 210 and 1GB of RAM, how will the Alcatel OneTouch Pixi 3 (8) with Windows 10 Mobile make do with eight inches of real estate? Does LTE, GPS and a low price sticker sweeten the deal? Moreover, is it worth a buy?

We don’t have the answers here. It’s just a CES 2016 hands-on, after all. But do check out how this puppy runs in the video below! And also check out our hands-on with the latest Windows 10 Mobile phone from Alcatel OneTouch, the Fierce XL.
