Alcatel Pop 4

The good

  • It’s affordable
  • Simple design
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow
  • Good battery life

The bad

  • Slow processor means low performance
  • Ordinary camera
  • No colour choices
Alcatel’s main forte is in affordable phones for the general audience, rather than show-stopping premium handsets that wow with features but take your breath away with high price points. The Pop 4, which was exclusive to Optus in Australia, exemplifies this thinking, with a price of only $119.

Design

  • Basic but inoffensive
  • Android 6.0 remains a good choice for budget handsets

Camera

  • Basic functionality very much in line with its price tag

Performance

  • Generally weak performance all around
  • Multi-tasking tends to bring it to its figurative knees

Battery life

  • Easy all-day battery thanks to its low-power components

Verdict

  • A plain and simple phone for those on a budget
