Best phone I ever owned
I've read the other reviews and they are pretty much the same, bad! But, myself personally don't see it this way. I have literally owned around 60 cell phones by now, no exaggeration. I am very computer and tech savvy, so no dummy here. Out of the vast array of phones I've used, my favorites were the good ole Razor, Samsung Motorola E, and now this Alcatel One Touch Pop Icon, yes the name is goofy but it doesn't deserve this harsh criticism it's receiving. This baby has a great camera w/HD, Panorama etc, a Quad Core processor, sufficient memory and speed. I can run several apps at once with little lag. Ok, so you can't save to the micro memory card, that's a stupid oversight from Alcatel, but regardless this phone has been amazing, fast, easy to use and it's loaded with awesome features. I bought a nice little black snap together cover for it and the phone is still slim, I love the way it feels in my hand, it's an all around really nice and tough cell phone. Take it from me, I've actually driven off with cell phones on the roof if my car about 4 times already, so I know what tough includes. I bought this phone from Total Wireless for $20.00 and for $35.00 a month I get unlimited everything, no joke, now that's a deal let me tell you! Google it up for yourself and see. Enjoy it like I do mine. Frank Fresh North Jersey.Less
I love this phone because I can throw it very far into the middle of a lake.
Features: - Freezes more often than a 95 year old woman in an unheated log cabin. - Apps are useless. Most of them don't work. - Memory - about as much as a 2 day old baby. - cost: way too high for this piece of junk - Tracfone loves these junky phones because they probably sell more of them than they would good ones. - service - "don't tell me - there is actually a service provided? That I can't believe". - look and feel. Looks and feels like a real phone but certainly does not work like one. - Hang ups - has more hang ups that a teenager with a bad acne problem.Less
HAS A BAD OVER HEATING PROBLEM
bought 2 of the same kind of phone and both over heat to the point it wont charge and freezes upLess
Have had the phone for one week and everything works well. It has all the functionality of phones costing 3 or 4 times as much. The display is good and processor is more then fast enough for normal use. The feel is solid ; nothing cheap about it. I'm a little dissapointed with the off-line GPS, as the first fix time is inthe order of 3 to 5 minutes. This compares badly with my Lumia 520, which can get a first fix in a matter of seconds, but seems to be quite average for Android phones. For example, the first fix time on the Motorola Moto G is even a bit longer, and Aplle phones can't seem to be able to do anything off-line!Less
This has to be the worst phone ever
This phone has given me nothing but trouble. It has a bad habit of simply freezing and you can't do a thing with it. For example, I may have an incoming call, but I can't answer it. It's not intuitive to use like an Iphone. It's difficult to make it do what you want as the screen is not very sensitive. I can't believe they can sell this crap.Less
It's good enough...but it's no Samsung Galaxy S3!
My Galaxy S3 crapped out on my (wouldn't read the SIM card) while I was in Fort McMurray (living in Borealis Lodge). Tried everything I could think of (or Google) to fix it - no go. Drove to town after 3 days of no phone and straight to Telus in the PP mall. They tried a new SIM card - still nfg. Discussed my options (I'm patiently waiting for the arrival of the Galaxy Note 4) and the best option was: Alcatel's just released One Touch Pop Icon ($150). Grabbed it and went. First thing I noticed: the 64GB microSD card from my S3 wouldn't work in the OT - read through the (tiny!) manual and found that it won't read bigger than 32GB. Luckily I had one of those...and so it began. I've been using this phone for about 2 month now. It's alright. Quite durable (no scratches yet) and has a nice feel. The touch screen isn't as responsive as the S3 - I had to remove the pattern unlock and return to a simple swipe because it wouldn't read my pattern input accurately often. The camera isn't as good either, one in every 10 photos appears out of focus (likely it's focused on something but not what I had intended). Its memory/CPU functioning seem quite adequate - certainly fast enough for anything I'm doing with it. Pros: Inexpensive; easy access to rear compartment for SIM & microSD & battery; Samsung S3 charger cord fits; FM Radio (with not-included earbuds for antenna); charges quickly, battery life is good. Cons: Touch screen not 'sensitive' - inaccurate inputs experienced sometimes; 32 GB maximum microSD; Earbuds not included - my S3 earbuds work, but the microphone doesn't; Small display size: 854 x 480; plastic case = economy feel.Less
