caz, 09 Jan 2017i think the phone is okay no problem with it but the battery life is a bit short but i think t... moreBattery 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, etc and if you delete these apps and use them through the browser , thus saving up to 40% of the battery (day)life .
display put on minimum brightness and wi - fi, bluetooth, use it when you need.
but how to charge mobile phone battery;
li -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.
for more space in the internal memory, do delete all the apps you do not use, but the ones that are installed along with the software and can not be deleted then do 'disable' and you will have more space for new apps
Deano, 29 Dec 2016Hi if I format an sd card will my apps that I download automatically go on the SD card,and all... moreAs far as I know, apps are downloaded to your phone first. (Of course, this means that your phone will need to have enough internal space to download that app.) After that you can manually move that app to your SD card. (Settings, apps, select whichever app, click on storage, then you should see an option where you can choose to move the app to SD.)
And of course, you can also move all photos and videos to your SD card, either by using your phone's file manager, or by plugging into a PC to do so.
Took on, 04 Jan 2017Glad to see I am not the only one unhappy with this phone. Cannot take a photo (unless its a s... moreYou should definitely be able to take normal photos, the phone is equipped with a 8 MP rear camera. There should be an option in your camera app to switch between front and rear cameras. If you can't find this option in your app, you can also try downloading a third party camera app from the Play Store.
As for storage, you can free up space by uninstalling some apps, or by using a micro SD card to expand your storage size. To do this, choose to format your SD card as 'internal storage' (a message asking for your choice should pop up the first time you insert an SD card).
Note that you can only move apps that you have installed yourself to the SD card. Factory apps that come pre-installed usually cannot be moved. To 'remove' some of these pre-installed apps to clear up storage space, you can go into your settings -> apps -> select whichever app, then click 'storage', then 'clear cache'. After that, go back and click 'disable'.
I also want to add that the stock camera app that came with my phone likes to apply too much postprocessing to images, making them seem washed out and unnatural. An easy 'fix' is to download another camera app from the Play Store -- maybe this can help those who are currently not satisfied with image quality.

This crap cheap garbage phone turns on and off then on then later over and over again. Do not waste your money and time. Tech tells me to send it in. I have replaced it 3X. No more.
I bought this phone in july, very sad little thing, cant open apps, cant get the radio to work much, no memory, should I go on.............
I will get something else!
Phil, 04 Jan 2017Got one for my daughter. Put on WhatsApp and want to put on Messenger. But it says not enough ... moreall apps you do not need, delete or disable, but remember ''messenger'' is
a nightmare for every phone, as corrupting the phone memory for a few days, because all the time running in the background and the battery life is short because of messenger.
Glad to see I am not the only one unhappy with this phone. Cannot take a photo (unless its a selfie) not for me ! .cannot put it on silent. Hardly make or receive a call or text,BUT now I am getting message phone storage is full. and to clear some resources. Been on CHAT line , no help. I am elderly. I can only follow simple instructions. Wished I had never signed up for this contract. Anyone advise me how I can break this contract. Thanbks.
Got one for my daughter. Put on WhatsApp and want to put on Messenger. But it says not enough room for both. Have an SD card formated as internal but it wont use the space for either app. Any addvice?
I like the phone in ways,but it's 2 biggest faults is its camera not great and the memory is a joke,but apparently some people have had success formatting an sd card,but others haven't,I have ordered one and should have it soon,and if it works Ile be happy with the phone, shame about the camera tho but it's passable,but if this SD card doesn't work then the phone is useless.

The Alcatel Pop 4 was made in 2016 with a 8mp camera and some phones made in 2013 have an 8mp camera... Rubbish!!! As well I all ways get 'Unfortunately ... Has Stopped. It is also really slow, laggy, etc. I would recommend you to get a better brand EG Samsung, Apple, Microsoft etc.
When I bought the Alcatel Pop 4, it seemed like a good deal ..... few pounds cheaper than the "equivalent" Samsung. How very wrong I was ----- Selfie camera is out of focus and, it seems, there is no way to focus it. |Also, Despite following instructions regarding SD cards, the phone just will not use it ...... Waste of money and a classic case of "false econ
omy" ..... lesson learnt. Stay away from Alcatel : useless PS almost impossible to get a case for it, as well ....
I'm afraid to be so bold, but this phone is absolute rubbish. No storage capability even with S.D card, the main issue I have is video audio quality on play back, totally distorted and muffled. totally regret upgrading from my trusted Motorola to which I'm going back to..
