Alcatel Pixi 4 Plus Power is both a smartphone and power bank

Published

on

Some phones are born with it; others need the help from ugly accessories. We’re talking about battery life, which is a topic we’re constantly asked about, and the answers always vary. Alcatel is offering an alternative solution, and it comes bearing a 5000mAh battery.

The Pixi 4 Plus Power is fully committed in its ability to last long. Its battery capacity is so large, it can provide enough juice for another device — just like a power bank. Of course, anything this big takes an eternity to charge, but Alcatel has that covered, too.


There’s quick charge technology on board to help in recharging with great haste. We’re not certain what kind exactly, but let’s assume that the package will include the compatible charger.

Alcatel claims that the Pixi 4 Plus Power can last 2.7 days on a single charge. That’s really specific, if you ask us. Additionally, we should expect 22 hours of web browsing through Wi-Fi, 14 hours of pure video streaming, and five days of constant music output.

All that feels a little excessive, but if you consider the low energy consumption of the chipset, you won’t be surprised at all. The specs sheet reveals a 5.5-inch 1280 x 720-pixel display, 1GB of memory, 8GB of expandable storage, and 3G connectivity.

So, nothing impressive other than the monstrous battery? Wrong. Both the 13-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel selfie shooter have LED flash units. That’s always a plus in our book.

Fortunately, the profile is just shy of a centimeter thick at 9.9mm, and the dual-SIM model seems to be standard. Alcatel hasn’t revealed the price or release date yet, and color options seem to be dependent on each region.

Honor 20 Pro Moschino edition unveiled

There are Moschino cases, too!

Published

This is not a drill.

With Honor’s announcement of their Honor 20 series came a fashion collaboration that definitely excites me. The Honor 20 Pro Moschino edition was just announced and I just love how extra it is.


The phone itself has the worlds “This is not a Moschino phone” stamped on the back in true Moschino fashion. Of course, there’s a matching wallpaper that says, what else: “This is not a Moschino wallpaper.”

There are also cases that follow that design lead…

My favorite, a case that features similar bold text for that Moschino flair and straps that you can even hook to your bag.

Though all designs are fresh, the partnership isn’t surprising. Moschino’s Jeremy Scott is known for collaboration, not to mention, Honor also teamed up with the Italian fashion brand for the Honor View 20’s design.

No details on pricing and availability for this particular version of the Honor 20 Pro is out yet but one thing’s for sure: I’m loving the fashion x tech partnership and I’m definitely hoping for more!

Apart from the main Honor 20 and Honor 20 Pro models, there’s another Honor 20 phone: the Honor 20 Lite. As the successor to the Honor 10 Lite, the new budget-friendly Honor 20 variant is meant to be in the lower tier.

The Honor 20 Lite has a 6.21-inch Dewdrop FullView display with a Dynamic prism-shaped gradient color body. It mimics the look of its more premium siblings, but for less cost.


As a midrange-specced Honor phone, it’s powered by the widely-used (within the Honor and Huawei family) Kirin 710 processor paired 4GB of memory and 128GB of internal storage. Unsurprisingly, it runs Android Pie-based EMUI 9.0 out of the box.

Camera-wise, it has three rear AI cameras: a main 24-megapixel sensor, an 8-megapixel ultra wide-angle shooter, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. In the front, there’s a 32-megapixel selfie camera inside the display’s notch.

The phone’s 3400mAh battery is respectable, but it doesn’t support SuperCharge and it charges through a micro-USB port. For comparison, the P30 Lite from Huawei already has a reversible USB-C. Additionally, the phone’s fingerprint reader is located on its back.

The Lite model is already available in stores in Europe for EUR 299 or around US$ 335 when converted.

Honor 20 Pro ties with OnePlus 7 Pro on DxOMark

Even beats the Huawei Mate 20 Pro

Published

Honor has never been one to make noise on DxOMark’s camera performance charts, but the company finally felt that it’s time to set a high bar for all flagship smartphones to follow.

The Honor 20 Pro, which is the brand’s latest and best smartphone to date, earned a score tof 111 on DxOMark’s mobile ranking. That’s right below the Huawei P30 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, plus it ties with the recently launched OnePlus 7 Pro.


It’s a major statement to say the least, and puts the Honor 20 Pro on the map as one of the best pocket shooters in the market.

When you check out its specs sheet, you wouldn’t be too surprised by the high score. The Honor 20 Pro has a 48-megapixel main camera with a bright f/1.4 aperture, 16-megapixel ultra-wide shooter, 8-megapixel telephoto unit, and a 2-megapixel macro option. Indeed, that’s as much variety as a smartphone can get.

In addition, the chipset that processes the P30 Pro’s images — the Kirin 980 — does the same work for the Honor 20 Pro’s photos. The broken-down scores of 117 for photos and 97 for videos simply prove that this Honor flagship is every bit as capable as its parent company’s best.

With a starting price of EUR 599, this is quite a deal for the camera performance you get out of it. You can learn more about the Honor 20 Pro in our unboxing and hands-on video:
