We will get a better understanding of this phone’s pros when we get into specific details.

The Alcatel OneTouch POP Astro is available just in color white. The Alcatel OneTouch POP Astro is quite a compact phone, taking into account that it presents a 4.5″ screen and it only has 5.23 inches long and 2.57 inches wide. The Alcatel OneTouch POP Astro is thin and stilized, with a thickness of just 0.39 inches. The Alcatel OneTouch POP Astro isn’t very light for a phone this size, with a weight of 5.11 oz.

This device is powered by a quite powerful CPU ticking at 1.5 GHz, included in a MediaTek MT6732 system chip with 1 GB of RAM memory. The Alcatel OneTouch POP Astro counts with a passable 4 GB internal memory, which is fine considering that it also has an SD memory slot to store songs, photographs and videos.

The Alcatel OneTouch POP Astro has a nice 4.5 inches screen with a 960 x 540 resolution, which makes all photos and videos look colorful and brightful. Its screen uses TFT capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch for gestures like pinch and zoom.

This cellphone counts with a medium 2000 mAh Li – Ion removable battery that can keep this phone running for several hours. Alcatel informs a stand by time of 250 hs and a talk time of 8.5 hours for this device.

This phone features WiFi connectivity (which it can provide to other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE (4G) high performance internet connection or fast 3G internet connection, supported by HSPA, HSUPA and EDGE technologies. This phone uses a Micro SIM card to connect to GSM networks.
