Slim and stylish

 The OneTouch Pop Star is super-slim and has a cool finish. The compact design fits comfortably in your hand and pocket, while the stylish colour options look great when you leave the phone out.


Bright and powerful screen

 The OneTouch Pop Star’s screen is a big 5-inch HD panel, giving a bright, clear picture for both games and videos.


Keep everything in focus

 The 8MP camera lets you capture all those fleeting moments in great detail, ready to share with your friends and family in an instant.  


Putting you in the frame

 The 5MP selfie camera puts you in the frame. You’ll always look your best thanks to sharp detail and vibrant colours – and you shots will be the perfect size for Facebook or Instagram.


Make multitasking easy

 Inside the OneTouch Pop Star is a 1.3GHz quad-core processer, meaning you can run more apps at once without the phone slowing down.


Sizeable battery

 Nobody likes running out of power, and that’s why this phone has a 2,000mAh battery. It’s plenty big enough for a full day’s use so you don’t need to worry about running out when you’re on the move.

Alcatel Pop Star is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as good as you think from the display I've had this phone for nine months and it's already broken. I always assumed that cheap phones would be bad, and my point is proven. The phone cannot multitask like the description states, it crashes multiple times a day. The 8GB storage is actually 4.7GB, so it frequently runs out of storage. The charger I have used has broken, along with the two other chargers I tried using. Sometimes the battery gets too hot and the charger provided will stop. Also, the microphone has stopped working. I assume it's because although the phone is waterproof, the functions will easily stop working even though it's only had contact with water twice. None of the additional chargers I have bought will work, so the phone cannot power on.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sluggish, no storage, old software I needed a phone at short notice as my normal phone a Nexus 5X suddenly died on me. I admit I asked for a cheap phone but boy this is pretty bad. No 4G, after installing all the apps I needed the phone only left me with 800MB of storage. Cannot get Play Music to store downloaded and cache on the mirco SD card. The phone simply cannot handle more than two apps if that at any one time. I suppose if you want a phone that is running 2 year old plus software, the ability to not do any multitasking and no free space to use the apps you downloaded then this phone is great. If you want your phone to do anything remotely smart without waiting for ages or constant freezing then do not buy this phone at all it is very poor which is a shame as it looks nice for a low range phone and the battery is decent and charges quite fast.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ... Good for handling multiple apps... I usually remove unused apps and enable developer options, so I don't know how it is fresh from the shop without doing the above. Great screen quality, ok camera, engineer mode allowed unlike other alcatels, tinny speakers but loud. Good value for the money! Worth the buy overall! Also, good battery life provided you enable the battery saver option, turn the brightness right down, and turn off location, bluetooth etc when not in use. I do this with all my phones so I don't know what it's like without that. Anyway, good phone. Go and buy now.
