Alcatel POP 2 4.5

Alcatel Pop 2 4.5

Alcatel has released a new family of mid-range smartphones at the CES fair. They are the  Alcatel Pop 2 , simple equipment, with a design of very colorful interchangeable shells and very complete technical profiles. The model that concerns us in this analysis is the  Alcatel Pop 2 4.5, which is the intermediate one since it has a 4.5-inch screen. 4G connectivity and the 64-bit processor are some of its strengths. We see all the details of the new  Alcatel Pop 2 4.5 below.

Display and layout

As we have already advanced and as its name indicates, the Alcatel Pop 2 4.5 has a 4.5-inch diagonal screen . It is an intermediate size that offers a good visual experience, but respecting the functionality of a compact device. The resolution is FWVGA , equal to 854 x 480 pixels , and concentrated 218 dots per inch. The screen is capacitive and allows gestures with two fingers at the same time at the most. Alcatel includes a one-finger zoom feature.

The design is in line with the rest of the range. Rounded shapes, plastic housing, and many color options available. The  Alcatel Pop 2 4.5 has dimensions of 132.5 x 65.4 x 9.95 mm and its weight is 147 grams. Cases will arrive in yellow, green, lavender, red, blue, white, silver, gray, and black.

Camera and multimedia

The Alcatel Pop 2 4.5 integrates a rear camera 5 - megapixel resolution, which can capture images up to 2,592 x 1,944 pixels, a size large enough for viewing on a larger screen, including that of the TV. It is accompanied by an LED flash , very useful for taking photos in low light, although Alcatel also includes a night mode to avoid using it in some situations. It records FullHD videos and has a stabilizer so that they come out less shaky, minimizing the "shaking" effect of the hand. It comes with a fairly comprehensive package of features, including HDR mode, burst mode, andQR code scanner . In the front it has another camera, but much simpler ( VGA ).

The  Alcatel Pop 2 4.5 has an integrated FM radio and is compatible with the most common multimedia formats , so that we can listen to music or watch videos without problems. It also has other functions such as dictation and voice recording.

Power, memory and operating system

In the same way as the rest of the range, the  Alcatel Pop 2 4.5 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, a quad-core with 64-bit architecture , which operates at 1.2 Ghz frequency. It integrates an Adreno 306 graphics processor and is supported by 1 Gb of RAM . The internal memory is 8 Gb , although Alcatel already warns us that there will be 5 Gb free , discounting what the system and applications occupy. If we fall short, we can always use a MicroSD card (32 Gb maximum).

Alcatel's official data indicates that the  Alcatel Pop 2 4.5 will come standard with Android 4.4 KitKat. However, the rest of the models in the range will have Android 5.0 Lollipop , so it could be a mistake. Alcatel includes some special functions such as the option to silence the mobile by turning it upside down or to unlock it with two taps on the screen. It also has a guest profile and download enhancer.

Connectivity and autonomy

The  Alcatel Pop 2 4.5 has 4G connectivity (LTE Cat 4), which allows it to reach download peaks of up to 150 Mbps. It is also compatible with 3G mobile networks , although in this case the maximum speed will be 21 Mbps. It has WiFi , antenna GPS , Bluetooth 4.0, DLNA and WiFi Miracast, to mirror the screen on a compatible device . The physical connections are the usual ones; a MicroUSB and a minijack for headphones. The  Alcatel Pop 2 4.5 will go on sale in a normal version and another with Dual SIM.

The Alcatel Pop 2 4.5's battery has 2,000 milliamps and can go up to 400 hours on a single charge in sleep mode . The autonomy in use ranges between 8 and 12 hours, depending on whether we are using the 3G or 2G connection respectively.

Availability and opinions

The  Alcatel Pop 2 4.5, like the rest of the range, will hit stores throughout the first quarter of this year , but the exact date or its price has not yet been released. However, considering its specifications, we expect the price to be quite competitive .

The middle brother of the new family Alcatel Pop 2 bet on the balance , both the screen size and performance as the battery , the camera or memory internal. The Snapdragon 410 processor and 4G connectivity stand out above all . The operating system version will be Android 4.4 KitKat , but we hope they correct this point at launch and have the latest installment.
