Reviews for the Alcatel One Touch Pop 2
The Alcatel Pop2 smart Android phone measures 13x6.5x1cm and weights147grams. The viewable screen is 10x5.7cm which gives the notional diagonal imperial measurement of 4½inches. This small smart phone looks slightly retro but as mobile phones devolve so quickly it would have looked very modern not that long ago. So has this latest budget priced offering got something to make you switch for its charms?

Overall the Alcatel Onetouch Pop 2 4.5 4G (it really needs a better name) is an ok phone, if you really really want 4G on the cheap that is. For me the problems with the display would stop me using it and that’s that. Although someone coming from a £20 feature phone wouldn’t see this as a problem. The one thing I keep coming back to is the new Moto E 4G 2015 which also costs about £100 and runs Lollipop and arguably has a better overall spec and will probably receive firmware updates for time to come.

The Alcatel One Touch Pop 2 is a respectable budget offering, packing 4G, a reasonably smooth user experience and solid battery life into a plain yet strangely attractive handset. The screen and camera are bettered by rivals, while the excessive bloatware means you’ll have to get busy with the uninstall button, but for a sub-£100 phone the One Touch Pop 2 will satisfy anyone looking for a basic web browser and media streamer.

The former French manufacturer of telecommunication equipment merged to Alcatel-Lucent in 2006. Several business segments were sold to other companies, so the Alcatel brand is now used by various companies. The Chinese company TCL uses the brand names "Alcatel One Touch" and "Alcatel Idol" for smartphones and tablets.
The market share in the smartphone + tablet segment is very small, but there are quite some recent reviews in different languages. The ratings are average (as of 2016).
57.67%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
