I want to buy alcatel pop4 plus.... by reading specification like battery, camera, I like this phone as it is in a reasonable range. How is this phone if we rate is out of 5.
I got this phone from a friend who came with from Germany. i really enjoy using it and i would recommend it to any one who want a good phone. The sound is clear and picture are just fantastic
I got this phone for 50 US Dollars last November black friday sale from bestbuy. I used it in colombia with a colombian cellular moviestar when I travel there with my wife when we visit her family. The phone works fine with data or wifi. I have used it in london paris bruges and amsterdam with hotel wifi. I have not had restart problems. The camera is not as good as my galaxy s5, but the camera is good in my experience. I purchased another on for 83 us dollars for my wife's nephew who will be attending a US university for 6 months. He didn't have a cell in colombia but with this dual sim cell phone he is using it in colombia and will be able to put a tracfone simcard or other here in us. I recommended this phone 2 a colombian women who visits the US often . She was having problems with her iphone 5. She was not happy with the pop4plus and she ended up getting a new iphone and gave the pop4plus to her husband. The full price of the pop4plus is overpriced at over 100 us dollars. There are better phones for 50 like the cricket coolpad canvas with better specs currently on sale at bestbuy for 40 us dollars. Use that phone 6 months with cricket service then the will unlocked it free whereby you can use it anywhere that has GSM srevice. If you can get the phone for 50 dollars and need it unlocked for immediate travel then I would buy.

Listen to yourself in the earpiece ,means a bad signal from your new operator, because they have poor coverage for the network, so you hear yourself talking. The phone is ok
I have been used my Alcatel pop4 since 8 months, I changed my phone carrier, first I had rebooting problem s and I got a new sim and this worked, now I cannot talk for more than 5secs. The other person cannot hear me, but I hear myself in the earpiece. Not sure what I need to do
Ade, 05 Dec 2016Can anyone help me out? I just got this phone few days ago, I noticed when am at a place where... moreAde - Random reboots is an issue according to Alcatel. According to them it is a hardware issue. And as per my experience it seems to be location related as there are places where it constantly reboots by itself. I suggest you call Alcatel support and get a replacement. My replacement handset which I've already had for four months had no random reboots so far,
peter longfield, 25 May 2017After 5 months, the USB port is wiggling - it becomes very tricky to make sure the phone charg... moreli -ion batteries work better when you are not used to the end 0%,but most to 25 % and then put the battery to charge75-90% , ( why?)
lithium-ion batteries have a rated lifetime of somewhere between 500 and 1,500 charge cycles.
so if it reach 100% or less then 25% then it lose 1 cycle.(the user runs it down all the way to zero before recharging) can degrade to 70 percent of its original capacity in 300-500 cycles
With a DoD of 25 percent, where the user plugs it in as soon as it gets to 75 percent remain, that same battery could be charged up to 2,500 times before it starts to seriously degrade.
Charge a little bit whenever you can.
Lithium-ion batteries don't respond well to being charged all the way up and then run all the way down. They take much better to little bits of charge here and there.
What's far more dangerous to a battery's well-being is heat. Lithium-ion batteries despise heat.
Battery consumption depends on the applications you have installed on the phone and working in the background even if you do not use the phone. such as; facebook, instagram, messenger so if you delete these apps and use them through the browser , thus saving up to 40% of the battery (day)life , the display put on minimum brightness and wi - fi, bluetooth,3G use it when you need.
for random restarts the phone you could do ''factory data reset'' to solve that problem but If does not help then go to play store to download '' st - ubb- orn tro- jan ki - ller ''
(blue icon with a horse head) - run and ki ll the tro - jan's and after will work as new.
After 5 months, the USB port is wiggling - it becomes very tricky to make sure the phone charges. Battery life is now half what it used to be.
Camera is rubbish. YOu can;t even do a 360 degree pano.
Random restarts as well.
But I paid only $50 for it so can;t really complain :(
The problems I encountered with this phone was the battery.. It does not last longer, camera quality... It sometime freeze. As for the internet speed is OK.. Pls do work
on your picture quality and also battery too... I think someday you will over come all phones... I bought it 3 months ago.
iam using alcatel pop 4 plus for a 4 month.. one day it fall from my hand,its about 1meter height..the display was compleately broken... i never get a spare display from my country...at last i realize that "i lost my money to buy this phone"
Phone problem after 8 months use
-Sometimes it restart when try to make call
-when using Headphone volume is bad low and not clear change many headset the same result . Comparing with other phones the problem Is from the phone not headset
-Front flash is useless Illumination is low
-Battery drain fast
-Network problem sometimes gives no network while other phone having a good network
-Sometimes it automatically select EDGE while 4G is available and stay a long time until it switch to 4g
Myrddincat , 17 Feb 2017I think there is something wrong with the ppi, I mean 720p at 5.5 inches does not equal 401ppi It's 267 PPI, not bad, but not the best! Considering buying one as the tablet I have is waaaaay outdated and has a 165 PPI screen... Lmao
Just bought it one month ago, everything works fine...ecept one thing. It keeps disconnecting from wifi in sleep mode over night. Option for keep wifi on in sleep mode is on always, so that cant be the problem i guess. I just hope for an update which will solve this.
I bought this phone 4 mounth ago and i got to say for it's price this is a pretty good phone.I have facebook, messenger,whatsapp,snapchat,instagram and bunch of more smaller apps instald on it and it handles it decende.I also played some games on it like wot blitz,front line comando,dead triger,asphalt xtreme,sniper fury on it whit no problem,gangstar vegas and six guns whit little bit of lag,and for some reson games brothers in arms and modern combat 5 frezze ass soon ass you start to play.Camera is pretty decend ass well especilly the front cuse its got wide angle and flash (great for selfies),everithing else work decende keep in mind this is a buget phone and if you are looking to buy a phone whit in this buget i whould recomend this phone.Sorry about my English,I'm frome Europe.

JohnHPB, 09 Dec 201631.8% screen-to-body ratio lol!Do you expect the bezels of a mi mix on a budget phone? In ten years maybe, but obviously not now.
XYZ1977, 10 May 2016Agree. For 5.5" phones a 400 series SD is a minimum, even a 4.5" Moto E 2nd Gen has a 410 SD ... moreDon't you realise this is a budget phone priced under Â€100. Do you seriously expect an sad 825? Plus it doesn't matter how big the screen is, it's the resolution that matters.
