Alcatel Pop S3 with EE


For those who want – and can receive - 4G this item is currently the cheapest PAYG 4G phone on the market. It is a smaller handset that is probably best suited to someone with smaller hands; certainly my large mitts struggled with the onscreen keyboard.

The Alcatel Pop S3 Android based smart phone measures 12x6.5x1cm and weights 135grams. The viewable screen is 5.3x8.7cm and this is described as 4inch using the imperial diagonal measurement. The top has 3.5mm socket for headphones, a pin hole...

Alcatel One Touch Pop S3


Cheap and cheerful smartphone with a nice interface, quick response times and a decent battery life (although I did experience battery drain when network coverage went patchy)

Lots of bloatware bundled in, half of which can't be uninstalled, only disabled. Camera pictures aren't great in low light but the software included allows you to compensate

Alcatel One Touch Pop S3


It's light, screen is a nice size, back covers are nice ; dropped it in the dogs water bowl and put it in a bowl of rice and it still worked :)

Not good battery life, only has one official flip-cover which I cannot find to purchase anywhere ; Very slippery back covers
