There are several premium characteristics that make the Alcatel Shine Lite a desirable smartphone. The first of these is the selection of build materials:
The next premium characteristic of the Alcatel Shine Lite is the inclusion of a fingerprint sensor. The fingerprint sensor goes beyond simply unlocking the phone and can be set up to open your favourite apps.
It is possible to customise up to five fingerprints to open, even from the lock screen, the web browser, Facebook app or any other app of your choice. The fingerprint scanner can also be used to access the Safebox feature, where private documents, videos and images can be stored.
This affordable Alcatel phone has a camera with a high 13MP resolution. Tackling the most difficult of photography scenarios, low light, sees a dual-tone flash come into play for correctly balancing the lighting and capturing natural looking results.

The camera can record 720p (HD) video but can play 1080p (Full HD) videos, which is great for watching downloaded content, such as movies.
The 5MP selfie camera has gesture controlled selfie functions and a front (selfie) flash, usually only seen on premium smartphones. Apps includes Face Show, which auto generates selfie videos and Split Catcher, which creates multiple-view collages using both front and back cameras. Further camera apps includes Easy Shot, Pano (panorama) and Selfie Album.
