[deleted post]I made the grave mistake of choosing to buy this abominable piece of crap. I've only had it for 6 months and it's already been through 3 chargers (including the original). Combine that with neverending storage issues and the keyboard doing the occasional vanishing act, not to mention the odd"contacts has stopped working"message on my screen, well it's just been a barrel of laughs.... I urge you not to buy this phone. This is my second Alcatel phone,I should have known better after the first one. Never again with an Alcatel. Good luck!
This Phone Is Great For Messages, Calls, Light Games, Some Video Editing And Web Browsing But Not That Great At Everything Else
AWFUL Paid £90. yes i know it's a budget phone, but there are some expectations that should be met!!! It continually freezes, the screen is unresponsive and opens another window unprompted, The keypad is slow and constantly mistypes. It also will not keep a VPN and needs reloading. Eventually it self loaded 'JoyLauncher' asking for access to all MSM, contacts, images. When I declined it went into a shut down/ open loop. The only cure was a full restore!
Now it keeps crashing/ freezing (worse than before) and wifi has to keep being reconnected manually, just like the VPN before. It also carries a lot of bloatware that cannot be uninstalled. One word AVOID!
I paid $125.00 for this Alcatel POP4s. Since the first day I bought it I couldn't get it to work properly. I called Pure Talk, my carrier, and spoke with a tech. She was very nasty and hung up on me twice. I just canceled my phone today because the camera would not work right, and the tech didn't know how to fix the problem. I am now minus $125.00 as the carrier would not allow me to return or exchange the phone. Don't buy Alcatel and don't go with Pure Talk for service!!
Hello I want to buy this phone ....it is good or bad ...please help me Iwant your opinion
This is literally the worst phone I ever had.
It is very slow, sometimes freezes for a few seconds, lot's of bloatware software which only slow down the phone and do not have absolutely any useful function.
Everything is good about this phone..n i not facing any problem like other...Not sure what actually happened..I'm just feel lucky bcoz my pop4+ working well..

Can someone please help?!? My music player, youtube, spotify and netflix keep pausing randomly. I listen to music constantly (its a therapy thing) but I cant use my phone to do so. Can someone please tell me how to fix it...
Found this site yesterday as I was searching for solutions to the 'running out of memory' and slow response issue a number of other people are encountering with their Alcatel POP4. I was very hacked off with the phone.
My provider is Tesco and their telephone customer service weren't particularly helpful. Last night I happened to be in a Tesco store (Havant) with an in-house mobile phone department. I mentioned the issues I was having and the store assistant was incredibly helpful. He removed (uninstalled/disabled - it depends on the app whether you can uninstall/disable) what I didn't need/want. The result........ the phone is working and is pretty quick.
Give the process a chance - see the posting from 'Sam' on 22 Mar 2017 for example, of what to do.
Also, keep on top of the storage situation and use things like Google Photos to limit what you're storing on your phone.
I've just lost a good 200 photos that a put on my phone from my camera, it's been absolutely fine for months till now. In fact I was in the process of making framed prints to sell but now they're all gone. Oh, I almost forgot, slow performance and hardly any apps can run.

I really like it apart from three things:
1. The volume keeps messing up and the loudest sound setting is soo quiet now!
2. The storage is shocking.
3. Youtube or any other videos from any website pause on their own randomly and it get on my nerves so much! Especially when you're trying to listen to music and it keeps pausing! You then have to press play again! It's not even buffering! Does anyone have any ideas?
This has to be the worst phone iv ever bought and I have had alot of phones. The first day I gave it to my 3 year old without using it myself and a porn site popped up! I had not downloaded any app at that stage and I certainly don't watch porn. When I answer the phone, which is difficult in itself, I get cut off. sometimes if I try to answer random pop ups come up and I cant answer. All in all, you would have to pay someone to take this heap of s..t from you. There is so much more stuff that is wrong with this phone, I just dont have the time to say it. What a waste of 125euro

Be patient, and later you will be very interest, this is not your old phone with buttons so you should be patient. I wish you luck .
Husband just bought me this beginning of a two day nightmare basic instructions a joke so had to go to Utube to learn how to set it up. Couldn't find start button, constantly asking for password going around in circles never ever known anything so complicated don't buy this complicated rubbish. I only requested it as reviews said easy to use what rubbish going back to store tomorrow for refund.
