Alcatel GO FLIP 4044 4G LTE (Unlocked for All Carriers) Flip Phone for Seniors Big Buttons Easy to Use - Black
About this deal
Google Assistant is good for more than just messages; hold down the button and ask it a question, and it will respond with Google answers. I wish it could be triggered from the action button on a Bluetooth headset, though—you actually have to hold down the center button on the phone's D-pad to make it work.

TCL Communication claimed that their Go Flip 4 battery can last up to 18 days standby or 12 hours talk time. We believe that the phone battery lasts that long because we might only use it for basic activities and nothing heavy. Is the Alcatel Go Flip 4 a good phone? The phone works as a hotspot on T-Mobile but, oddly, not on AT&T. Don't expect major hotspot speeds: The Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor here only supports relatively slow Category 4 LTE, so you'll get 10-20Mbps LTE speeds rather than much higher.
Another benefit is that when we accidentally drop our phone in the water, we can dry it off by opening the battery cover so it won’t affect other components inside the phone.

The phone supports LTE on bands 2/4/5/12/14/25/16/41+HPUE/66/71, along with 2G and 3G GSM and CDMA. This gives it maximum possible coverage on networks from AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint, and it means it will make calls on a merged Sprint/T-Mobile network if the two carriers do finally get together.
A battery that can be removed is definitely an advantage. Should there be any damage to the battery, we can always find a replacement instead of throwing the phone away. It's funny: The older Go Flip 2 also has a Snapdragon 210, but it doesn't perform nearly as well as the new model does. Alcatel said that KaiOS 2.5 is much more efficient than the KaiOS 1.0 on the older phone, and it really shows.
