Alcatel OneTouch POP Icon Review & Specs

Alcatel OneTouch POP Icon is a decent quality device, counting with a fast Quad-Core CPU speeding at 1200 megahertz, a pretty large 5-inches multi-touch capacitive screen, and two cameras, a 5 mega-pixels back camera and a 0.3 megapixels front side camera. Great! That’s it? Not at all, it’s just the starting point.

Alcatel sells the Alcatel OneTouch POP Icon with a powerful 1200 MHz Quad-Core processing unit and 1 GB of RAM memory. The Alcatel OneTouch POP Icon comes with a moderate 4 GB internal memory, which is adequate for the average user knowing that it also has a slot for an external memory card .

This cellphone is just 0.39″ thick, taking it to the thinnest cellphone’s category. This cellphone is quite a compact cellphone, taking into consideration it has a 5″ display and it has just 5.55 inches long and 2.84 inches wide. This cellphone is much lighter than what you would expect from a cellphone like this.

The Alcatel OneTouch POP Icon has a nice 5-inches screen with a 960 x 540 resolution, making everything look beautiful. Its screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and can detect multi touch gestures.

This phone features two cameras, a 5 MP back side camera and a 0.3 mega-pixels front camera. This phone can also shoot videos in HD 1280×720 at 30 fps. To complete the camera, it also has a few useful features: flash, auto-focus, face detection shooting and geo tagging.

This cellphone features Wi-Fi connectivity (and it can be shared with other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), HSPA+ (4G) internet connection, that is not as fast as LTE-A or LTE 4G networks or fast 3G connectivity, over HSDPA, HSUPA and EDGE technologies. This phone uses a Micro SIM card for GSM networks.
