Do not buy this phone it is complete rubbish, I have had it several months now, had nothing but problems with it, the best advice I can give, if you are lumbered with it like me, is to download google launcher and make that the default. Whoever designed this phone needs to find another job!!
Had this POP 4 for about 6 months and had nothing but problems with it. battery takes ages to charge. It is full of useless notifications and a has the most annoying app called 'Joy Launcher' which you can't get rid of. I'm sorry I ever purchased this rubbish, I don't expect a lot from a cheap phone but I do expect it to work reasonably well. At the moment it is getting very close to the bin. Avoid this phone like the plague.
got this alcatel pop4 phone around march this year as my xperia stopped working its the worst phone i have ever had dose what it wants to do pop ups all the time have sd card in it cant seem to store my pics n stuff on sd card, it phone,s folk i am not trying to phone just hate
For those are looking to buy this phone, I will try to give moderate detail about my opinions on this phone.
Right now this is my fourth month using this phone and I am somewhat ok with it. The money spent into this phone is what you get. This phone cannot handle heavy games (since it only has 1 GB of RAM) but can play light and easy games, so if you're an avid gamer, you might want to invest in a stronger phone. This phone has 8 GB of internal storage which is inconvenient since you would most likely use up all of the storage leading you to buy an SD card. I still have no problems with calling or texting. The camera is very mediocre when trying to take pictures in dim areas. My friend's iPhone took brighter pictures than mine so I had to ask my friend to send me their pictures. But in bright areas, the camera can be of good use. The launcher for the phone was fine till it updated and had annoying little features. It is better to just download another launcher from the playstore. There are also apps that you cannot uninstall like Google Music. You can probably live by ignoring them since they are kinda small.
Somehow, with all of the bad, I made this phone work for me and I am grateful to have it. When you buy this phone, you have to accept the fact that it is underpowered since its a cheap phone and you have to finely tune it's contents so it doesn't lag or slow down on you. If you are a heavy user, you should invest a little more money on a better phone, otherwise, you have to get use to the phone for now.
My alcatel pop 4 does not come with google play store (so surprising).. I tried to xsend it from another android smart phone fortunately it was successful. Buh i can't update nor download my applications on the google play store i collected from another android smart phone. i'm really bordered. what do i do???
Alcatel pop 4 has been nothing but trouble since i purchased it. It has been sending double quite often and not receiving text
i have trouble with my alcatel screen, it is brouken, can you tell me where can i change it, and what is its prise, please answer me
[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..
Anonymous, 08 Jul 2017This phone is utterly useless. I am bombarded with add all the time and it is slow and horrib... moreI bought an unlocked version and it seems I don't have your issues, maybe it's your provider or an app you never disabled manufacturer wize
i can't download applications on google play store. please why is it nlike that???
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.
