Scotian, 03 Dec 2014Are you one of those dummies that think a phone needs to be a flagship spec device to be worth... moreWhere in Canada is it sold for $80? Cheapest I found was $130 for new, $110 for used.
What a 5" phone! Can't believe this sells for around $120. You can unlock it on Ebay for a few extra bucks. The screen is just great for this price tag, pleasant and easy to watch. The camera colors are amazing and takes photos instantly with no lag at all. The videos also look great in colors. It has a powerful flash and the pictures with flash are well exposed.
No lag at all, very smooth screen. A little on the heavy side and slippery in hand, however the weight is well balanced n hand and with a silicone case it will stay great in hand and will be shock proof! The glass on this phone breaks easily if dropped, make sure to get a silicone/plastic case.
It doesn't feel that big or thick in hand, the size is just right.
The three main buttons at the bottom are nicely illuminated and are separate buttons (not on the screen). They are easy to reach and the vibration is smooth and very pleasant. It doesn't feel like a high end phone, but I don't see much difference compared with a Galaxy S4 for example. Ok, the gamers will say it's not the same specs, but the average consumer won't see a difference (besides the screen quality, of course).
Internet browsing is a breeze, very good page rendering and instant download.
The battery doesn't seem to be that powerful.
how do you make the call volume louder on this phone? when placing a call you can barely hear it ringing and as well its hard to hear the person on the other end once the call connects. Anyone else have this problem or is my phone defective possibly?
i have 32gb micro sd but the cpu work full 100% and when i take off the memory drop to around 15-30% please if someone can help me about that thanks
My phone is not reading the only 2G network . It is Alcatel One Touch Icon Pop 7040T
Great feel and outstanding WiFi...perfect size display BUTTTTT......Flimsy touchscreen cracked after minor drop from 3 feet (in a case to boot)....Wher is Gorilla Glass when you need it. Even with the cracks, I would purchase again...Lotza BANG for the buck!
I have the one touch pop icon A564C and I loved it for the first 2 months, then the battery quit and I can not find a new battery for it any where. should never have quit after 2 months, anyone know where I can find one, been all over the internet!!

Charles, 04 Dec 2014In the specs above it shows this phone having HOTSPOT. I bought one of these the other day an... moreit does indeed have hotspot... if you go to settings, you'll get - wifi, bluetooth, call settiotngs, data usage, more...- click more and you will find hotspot options.. i love this phone.
Shouldn't the model number (7040t) be mentioned in the fact sheet? Models from Samsung are searchable via model number, e.g. T989D.
In the specs above it shows this phone having HOTSPOT. I bought one of these the other day and it DOES NOT have HOTSPOT. What's up?
kabab, 21 Oct 2014Why you are given 10 out of 10.i think the specifications are normal.Are you one of those dummies that think a phone needs to be a flagship spec device to be worth buying or using. It sells for 80 dollars here in Canada where a Nexus 5 still sells for 400 dollars. For the package you get at that 80 dollar price point, I would give it at least 9/10 and maybe even 10/10.
Great phone. It runs on Verizon towers. Battery life is good. It runs kit kat and is very quick
