Alcatel OneTouch POP 2 (5) is a mid-end Android phone launched in 2015, counting with a comfortable 5" multi-touch screen, a high performance Quad-Core CPU clocking at 1.2 gigahertz, and two cameras, a 5 MP back-facing camera and a 0.3 mega-pixels front facing camera.

This time, it seems like Alcatel forgot about optimizing the weight in this 6.14 ounces cellphone. This cellphone is incredibly slim and comfortable, being just 0.38" thick. The Alcatel OneTouch POP 2 (5) is a compact cellphone, taking into consideration it has a 5" display and it only has 5.55" long and 2.81" wide. This cellphone is for sale in many different color options, black, gray, purple, yellow, green, blue, red and white.

Alcatel equipped this cellphone with a interesting 5 inches display, and a 854 x 480 resolution, providing this phone with a decent image quality. Its display uses TFT capacitive technology, and can detect multi touch gestures.

Alcatel equipped this phone with an extremely powerful 1.2 gigahertz Quad-Core 64 bits CPU, bundled in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 8916 chip with only 1 GB RAM memory which is a little poor considering its powerful CPU. Graphic rendering generally uses lots of processing time, so it counts with an extra Adreno 306 graphic processing unit working at 450 megahertz to take care of them, leaving the CPU free for other tasks. The Alcatel OneTouch POP 2 (5) counts with aquite big 8 GB internal storage memory and a slot for an SD memory card, which allows the user to store a couple hundred games and apps without running out of space.

The Alcatel OneTouch POP 2 (5) offers wifi connectivity (and it can be provided to other devices acting as a wireless router), LTE 4G fast connectivity and also HSPA+ data connection, a slower 4G network or the fastest 3G connection type, supported by HSDPA, HSUPA and EDGE technologies. This cellphone uses 2 Micro SIM cards so it's able to use 2 different phone numbers and even different carriers in the same cellphone.

This phone is equipped with two cameras, a 5 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 0.3 mega-pixels front camera. This device also films 1920x1080 Full HD videos at 30 fps. Additionally, the camera counts with lots of amazing features like flash, fast burst mode, auto-focus, smile detection shooting, digital image stabilization, geo tagging and HDR mode.

This phone uses a 2500 mAh huge battery, which isn't very much for a phone like this. This phone has an estimated 500 hours stand by time and a 12 hs talk time according to Alcatel.

This phone also includes some interesting features like Bluetooth (4.0), GPS and NFC, and some sensors likeLight Sensor, Proximity Sensor and Accelerometer.

This phone is priced only $ 199, a good offer for a phone this level. It doesn't matter whether you need this phone for work, want it to play tons of games or will use this phone majorly for internet broswing and social networks, this phone is a good choice for you.
