Which Memory Card do I need for my ALCATEL ONETOUCH PIXI 3(4) Smartphone?
Make sure you purchase the right Memory Card for your smartphone. The base model of the OneTouch Pixi 3 4.0 has 4 GB of internal storage, which makes it a poor choice for storing multimedia. Users who demand more memory from their smartphone can install an external microSD or microSDHC (High-Capacity) memory card with a maximum capacity of 32 GB. Many micro SD Cards come with an SD Card adapter for compatibility with SD-enabled devices, such as cameras, camcorders and (notebook) computers. Memory cards usually come pre-formatted and do not need to be formatted out of the box.
We recommend storing multimedia files (such as music, videos and pictures) on an external memory card in your device to free up your device’s internal memory for applications. Plus, if you buy a new smartphone, you can simply put your external memory card in your new phone and all your data is back immediately.
The SD Association defines standard speed classes indicating minimum performance to record video. The class indicates the minimum writing speed: Class 2 = 2 MB/s, Class 4 = 4 MB/s, Class 6 = 6 MB/s, Class 10 = 10 MB/s.
SDHC cards are usually shipped preformatted with the FAT file system. Android devices normally only support the FAT file structure. If you insert a card formatted with a different file structure, your device might ask you to reformat the memory card. Formatting your memory card on a PC may cause incompatibilities with your device. Format the memory card only on the device. Go to Settings > Storage > Scroll down > Format SD card > Format SD card > Delete all.
Popular memory cards for this smartphone include, but are not limited to: Kingston Digital 16 GB Class 4 microSDHC Flash Card with SD Adapter and SanDisk 32GB Class 4 Micro SDHC Memory Card With Adapter.
A. Insert a Memory Card
2. Remove the back cover. Hold the device in one hand and find the small notch that will help you to release the cover. It’s on the the bottom-left corner of the phone. Insert a fingernail into the notch. Lift upwards gently to pop the phone open. Working from the bottom-left corner to the bottom-right corner and then lifting the back cover upwards seems to work well. Be careful not to damage your fingernails when you remove the back cover. Also, be certain not to bend or twist the back cover excessively. Doing so may damage the cover.
4. The Memory Card Slot is on the top-left corner of the battery compartment (near the camera lens). First open the metal clip by putting a fingernail at the right side of the clip. Slide the clip to the left until it clicks and then lift it up to open it.
7. Reinstall the battery by aligning the three contacts with the three prongs on the bottom-right side of the battery slot. Use the small white arrow for help. Slide the battery into the battery housing cavity and press down to secure it in place.
