Review: Alcatel OneTouch S’Pop

Alcatel is known to be manufacturing phones which are reasonably priced, yet packed with decent features. One Touch S’Pop is one such phone which is also in the same line. The phone has packed some fine features and the price at which all of these are offered makes the phone a runaway hit. Some of the negative points at which the phone slightly disappoints are game support and screen quality where the cost-cutting becomes evident.

On the design front, the phone impresses a lot. The back panel is sturdy and does not give a feeling of a cheap phone. Alcatel One Touch  S’Pop resembles a cheaper version of iPhone 5 but still looks better than many low cost Android phones that compromise on the build quality. Considering the price of the phone, you cannot be asking for more than what is offered by the phone. The phone comes in single SIM and supports only micro SIM card.

The Alcatel One Touch S’Pop is an entry-level smartphone. It runs the Android version 4.1 and is powered by a Single core 1 GHz processor. The screen size of the phone is pretty smaller at 3.5-inch. The HVGA display is just average and does not fit the bill when many better phones with better screen are available in the market. The resolution of the screen is 320×480 which many would not find sufficient.

The slower processor with single core is also below average and multi-tasking to a very limited extent is possible with the 512 MB RAM provided. The saving grace of the phone is the NFC feature which also finds itself, unused due to other features not in sync with it. There is a 3.2 MP rear camera which clicks appreciable photos only in broad daylight and falters completely in the night time. You also get a VGA front camera for video calling and taking selfies.

The internal memory provided in the phone is 4 GB of which only 2 GB is available to the user. The memory can however be expanded up to 32 GB using the memory card. A 1400 MHA battery juices up the phone and claims the talk time to be 5 hours for 2G and 6 hours for 3G. The standby time of the Alcatel OneTouch S’Pop is 254 hours on 2G network and 350 hours on the 3G network.

Being touted the cheapest phone in the market with such amazing features; the phone definitely packs a punch on every front, and is it the screen or the performance. The battery of the phone is sufficient if we consider the size of the screen and the processor, but it would have been a unique selling point if the battery would be much stronger. In this price bracket, there are few things that the users can afford to compromise with.

Price: AED 499 Approx.
