Alcatel A7 XL

The Alcatel A7 XL was one of the smartphones on display when Alcatel hit the IFA 2017 in Berlin. The 6-inch device is certainly an upgrade from where the Alcatel A7 took its foot off the gas, although there is little to separate them.

The device is surely the bigger of the two ‘A Series’ siblings costing approximately US$60 more than the A7, at US$332. Here is a full description of the Alcatel A7 XL.
