Reviews for the Alcatel One Touch Pop S3

90% Alcatel's 4G starter phone on EE
Source: Gadgetspeak English
To be able to offer it for such a budget price it is obvious that Alcatel has had to look very carefully at the design and has had to cut corners. The Alcatel One Touch Pop S3, available on the EE network as a pay-as-you-go phone for £79, is one of the cheapest – if not the cheapest – available 4G phones. It is an entry level phone that will meet the needs of a great many people at an acceptable price.

70% Alcatel Pop S3 with EE

My only problem was text entry with my stubby fingers often hitting the junction of two keys, it was better in landscape mode, however as I said at the star it is the cheapest PAYG 4G phone on the market. For those who want – and can receive - 4G this item is currently the cheapest PAYG 4G phone on the market.

There was a place for cheap phones like the Pop S3, once upon a time. Now though they’ve been replaced by affordable ones like the Moto G, and what spectacular substitutes they are. We’ll take Motorola’s build quality, bang up to date software and vivid screens any day over this, with or without 4G - what good are super speed downloads without a top notch phone to make use of them?

Comment

Model:

The Alcatel One Touch Pop S3 is a 4G android phone by Alcatel. Its 4 inch IPS LCD screen has a screen resolution of 800x480 pixels. This is a pretty low resolution and the display is not as sharp as it could be. The color contrast is not very good as well. In addition, the screen is reflective and the brightness is too low for the bright sunlight, making it virtually useless outdoors. However, it supports multi touch gestures and features a proximity sensor.

The phone is barely noticeable, weighing only 130 g and comes with white, black or yellow removable tough plastic rear cover in the box. This customization is only sweetened by the 0.9 cm phone depth. It has a 5 megapixel rear camera with LED flash, autofocus and panorama that can capture 1080 pixel video and a 0.3 megapixel front camera.

The internal storage capacity is 4 GB and storage capacity can be expanded to up to 32GB with a microSD card. In addition, it runs on Android 4.3. However, there are a number of preinstalled apps on the phone that are considered “bloatware” and should be deleted to clear the 4 GB internal storage. Unfortunately, most of the bloatware cannot be deleted from the phone. The Alcatel either has a MediaTek CPU or a Snapdragon 400, depending on your location. Those are both decent processors. The 2000 mAh battery can last for up to a day with constant use or up to eight hours of video playback.

4.0":

This is one of the smallest diagonal for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
