T-Mobile Revvl official, will launch August 10th for $0 down and $5 per month


After numerous leaks, the T-Mobile Revvl is now official.

T-Mobile today confirmed that the Revvl, its new own-brand Android phone that’s made by Alcatel. The T-Mobile Revvl will be available tomorrow, August 10, with pricing set at $0 down and $5 per month with JUMP! On Demand or $5 down and $5 per month with EIP. Full retail price is $125.

When it comes to specs, the T-Mobile Revvl runs Android 7.0 Nougat on a 5.5-inch HD display. It’s got 13-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front cameras, a quad-core MediaTek MT6738 processor, and 2GB of RAM, There’s 32GB of storage included, but there’s also a microSD slot so you can add more storage if you’d like.

Rounding out the Revvl’s feature set is a rear fingerprint reader and a 3000mAh battery.

T-Mobile touts the Revvl as a “feature-packed phone” that won’t cost a boatload. While the Revvl may not appeal to those customers that want flagship-tier hardware, the device does look solid for its price tag. So if you’re in the market for a new smartphone that’ll be easy on the wallet, you may want to give the T-Mobile Revvl a look tomorrow.

        For $120, how exactly has this failed to live up to your expectations? Maybe you’re asking too much of a device meant for people on a budget?

        • mreveryphone

          I played with the phone and it couldn’t even open/close chrome or get in and out of the camera app without freezing… Maybe a software update will fix that but I wouldn’t spent my $125 on something that can’t even execute basic tasks…

        • Bklynman

          I play with one yesterday,had no problem with closing the camera app or chrome,not saying you are lieing,maybe it the floor model they had out,what the reviews I read on midlevel or lower tier phones it is hit or miss with them. I wouldn’t any new phone until I read reviews on it.

        • Acdc1a

          A Snapdragon 427 wouldn’t have the lag and could probably have been had for only slightly more money.

        • marque2

          Anything can be had for slightly more money, but add this feature for slightly more, and that feature for slightly more, and all of a sudden you have a mid priced phone that costs twice as much.

          Last year’s LG Aristo was a really good phone for $120 (as low as $96)

    • Acdc1a

      MediaTek :(

      • Captain Insano

        I was reading the specs like yeah! Yeah! Yeah! And nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! When it said mediatek. So close!!!!!!!!

  • NardVa

    If the phone had 3GB of ram it would be just right for a mid-level phone. I wouldn’t recommend any phone without at least 3GB minimum.

    • Iphart

      This is $120!

  • Joseph Bekin

    My wife’s Galaxy J7 has been taking a crap lately, this might be a decent replacement for her.

    • Andrew Singleton

      definitely not the quality level of the J7. you’d be safer with Stylo 3 or the new J7.

      • Romdude

        Yeah, the Stylo 2 plus was a good cheap phone with a stylus.

    • George Salcedo

      What’s going on with her J7? My brother’s lags big-time now. Samsung doesn’t seem to care much about their mid range devices

      • Joseph Bekin

        Yes the same thing, keeps lagging and bogging down. Factory reset it and only helped for a little while.

        • TmoRepNLovingIt

          Try a different launcher. The touchwiz launcher on the j7 sucks for some reason

        • marque2

          Also replace the keyboard with the google keyboard (or some other) That solves problems as well.

      • MadJoe

        That’s exactly it, Samsung couldn’t care less about anything not the Galaxy S or Note.

      • TmoRepNLovingIt

        Try downloading and using a 3rd party home launcher.

        • marque2

          That and a factory reset. My daughter got my wife’s three year old Nexus 5 – and it was lagging. I thought maybe it was just old, but remembered better performance in the past. Factory reboot, works like a charm again. Android phones get really laggy after a year of use, and need the occasional reset.

    • TmoRepNLovingIt

      I deal with the J7 on a daily basis and I’ve found that the stock TouchWiz launcher on that particular device seems to be the cause of a lot of it’s issues. Try downloading a different home launcher and see it that helps.

      • marque2

        I would recommend getting the Google Now launcher from the play store. Touchwiz is junk. I was amazed when I got my G7 how poorly it worked. I had to replace the launcher, keyboard, web browser, texting app, just to get it to work right. Unfortunately Google text app doesn’t support the emergency alerts which are now in text messaging for some reason. And to top it off, the fingerprint detection is horrid. I gave it my kids and got the G6.

        Not all was bad with that Samsung phone, they had a good power saving app. And they included an app that allowed easy videoing and photos of game apps.

    • Carl cooper

      I would suggest the LG Aristo. The Revvel just has good storage. To many glitches and battery life just sucks. I can do what I want all day on the Arito and still be 20% charge in 10 hours.

  • mreveryphone

    A 2017 Mytouch Fender edition needs to make a comeback…

    • douglas futrell

      I remember wanting that phone so bad! Oh the early days of android

      • mreveryphone

        IKR! It’s definitely come a long way

  • nutmac

    Does it have 600 MHz band 71?

    • Jason Caprio

      Quad Band GSM
      LTE: 66, 2, 4, 5, 12
      UMTS: Band II (1900), Band IV (1700/2100), Band V (850), Band VIII (900)

      No Band 71. This device will be 3 years old by the time 600MHz is widely deployed. You won’t see band 71 devices becoming mainstream for at least another year.

      • Jay Holm

        For at least another year, huh? Are you Neville Ray, T-Mobile’s CTO?

        • Jason Caprio

          Yes, according to their animated timeline video, “Phase 1” will not be complete until November 2018. The entire rollout won’t be complete until 2020. That’s why I don’t understand why people are so hell-bent on Band 71 support when it is only going to be in very few areas within the next couple years.

        • Jay Holm

          That is in reference to network deployment. Not phones launching with the capability. T-Mobile already stated that a phone will launch with support for 600mhz this year, and likely will phones with support for 600mhz will become more and more common going forward in 2018.

        • marque2

          Seems like Tmo is rolling out earlier than expected. 700 mhz went in quicker than expected as well. Considering you keep a phone two years, it might be worthwhile to hang on a bit, and wait for the new phones if your desire is to get a high end phone. If you just want a lower end useable phone – get this one for 125 and replace it next year.

  • pda96

    The MediaTek MT6738 is equivalent to a Snapdragon….what?? 400 series?

  • jdubb2600

    This is a phone for a kid in middle school. i know what my son will be getting

  • AS118

    For $125, that’s not bad at all. The storage isn’t skimpy either. Given that I’ve seen more expensive insurance deductibles for fairly old phones, I’d say it’s worth getting a phone like that just as a cheap backup.
