Microsoft is no longer alone building Windows 10 Mobile handsets. At CES 2016 in Las Vegas, Alcatel OneTouch in partnership with T-Mobile has announced the Fierce XL smartphone, which is the first mobile device the company builds running Windows 10 Mobile.
Officially, the device is called “T-Mobile Alcatel OutTouch Fierce XL”, and it’s the first phone built by the company to arrive to a United States carrier running Microsoft’s latest mobile operating system, as you know Microsoft’s Lumia 950 duo are only available through AT&T.
The Fierce XL is an affordable phone that it has a suggested retail price of $140. It’s not the best mobile device you’ll find, but for the money you get a very well-done phone.

For an affordable phone, you will also get an 8-megapixel back-facing and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. Similar to the Lumia line, you can also expand the storage by using a MicroSD card. As for battery life, Alcatel claims up to 14 hours of talk time on a single charge with a 2500mAh battery.
T-Mobile will also be offering the phone with Wi-Fi Calling, 4G LTE, and VoLTE services. Furthermore, even though, customers will be able to purchase the phone as one payment, T-Mobile customers will also have the chance to get the Fierce XL with zero money down, but it will require monthly payments of around $6.
