Win An Alcatel Go Play Smartphone

Win! Win! Win! Fortress of Solitude has partnered with Alcatel to give one of lucky readers the chance to win the Alcatel Go Play smartphone.

We featured the rugged Go Play on FoS back in June. You can check out our full review and thoughts for the Alcatel Go Play here.


Always ready for action, GO PLAY lets users: Take pictures underwater. Roll in the mud. Drop it from a height of 1.5 meters. It’s all good.

GO PLAY: Rough and Ready

GO PLAY is 1-meter waterproof so you can capture underwater adventures with its 8 Mpxl rear camera and 5 Mpxl front camera. What’s more, it’s dust and shock resistant. That means if you drop the phone, it can take a slide in the dirt for those mountain-biking adventures.

Record Everything Live!

The ViewMe app will allow you to record whatever is onscreen, with the possibility of adding an image and comments. Great for use in recording comments to favorite tracks or showing live reactions while gaming. Other pre-embedded apps like Periscope, Vine and Zello make sharing easy.


Colors Galore and a Powerful Battery

GO PLAY is available a selection of colours to appeal to any taste: dark gray, dark red or lime green. Today, we’re giving away the lime green Alcatel Go Play smartphone. There are splashproof headsets and protective cases to match GO PLAY too. The smartphone extends playtime with 20 days of standby time, 8.5 hours of talk time and 40 hours music playback thanks to the powerful 2500 mAH battery.

Key features:

  • Robust design: shock resistant, dust resistant and water resistant (rated IP67)
  • Cool colours with splashproof headsets to match
  • Records what’s playing onscreen with added voice-over
