Reviews for the Alcatel Pop 4

50% Alcatel Pop 4 Review
Source: Know Your Mobile English version
Just like the Alcatel Pixi 4, the Alcatel Pop 4 sacrifices too much at the altar of ultra-low pricing, necessitating massive compromises which really impact on the overall experience. Once again, you're going to get wound up by the sluggish performance and poor battery life, amongst other foibles, which will likely offset the initial glow from saving money.

60% Alcatel Pop4 Tablet Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English version
With the decline in the Android tablet market, there are very few options to choose from. Alcatel has managed to get a few things right with the Pop4, such as its full-HD display and front-firing stereo speakers, and it's decent for entertainment. Most tablets at this price point have HD displays giving the Pop4 a slight edge. However, the two-year-old software isn't a good platform to start with. Battery life is okay, but charging takes a long time. Considering the price and the performance that you get, you could go for the Alcatel Pop4, but if you need a device that is more of a computer than a tablet, the iBall Compbook Marvel 6 looks like a more versatile device at roughly the same price.

We’re not saying this is a fantastic phone, but if you definitely don’t want to pay any more, it’s good enough to be worth considering.

Alcatel is a French telecommunications company originally founded in 1898. The company specializes in the design and manufacture of cell phones, fixed-line phones, networking and communications solutions, and other telecommunications products. Alcatel is headquartered in Paris, France, and operates worldwide.

The telecommunications equipment manufacturer merged in 2006 to form Alcatel-Lucent. Various business units were sold to other companies, so the Alcatel brand name is used by different companies nowadays. The brand names "Alcatel One Touch" and "Alcatel Idol" are used by the Chinese company TCL for smartphones and tablets.
