It's called Alcatel OneTouch Pop C7 and it's one of the most interesting mid-range smartphones in the Alcatel company's catalog . Equipped with a large screen of up to 5 inches , this is a team that competes within the category of phablets , those devices that, due to the size of their screen, are halfway between the smartphone and the tablet. Entirely made of plastic material , it has a practical and youthful design, designed for an audience that wants to jump into the world of smartphones , but does not have the slightest intention of spending all their savings on the gesture.
Be that as it may, and despite the fact that we are facing a device suitable for all budgets, the Alcatel OneTouch Pop C7 has an integrated processor with up to four cores , prepared to guarantee performance at the level of what today's users need. Moreover, we can say that the phone is ready for connectivity (3G) and has a camera of five megapixels . The device is already on sale in our country for 110 euros in the free market.
Design and display
As you can see in the images, the Alcatel OneTouch Pop C7 is a phone that has a design very similar to the rest of the equipment in its catalog. It has a wide appearance, but with very rounded edges that make it a very pleasant smartphone to touch. The resulting dimensions are 141.71.8 x 9.9 millimeters and the weight is 162 grams , with the battery included. The phone is sold in five different colors, each more fun: white, black, red, pink and turquoise .
The screen, of course, occupies a large part of the front surface of the equipment. We are talking about a panel multitouch 5 - inch , equipped with a resolution of 480 x 854 pixels that will allow us to see all kinds of multimedia content in a remarkable quality. This translates to a density of 196 dots per inch . Includes an oleophobic cover for protection.
Camera and multimedia
The camera is an important element in any smartphone. This time, we need to talk about a 5 megapixel sensor completes its functions with LED flash, auto focus, face and smile detection, geotagging and image editor . This same camera will allow us to record videos in a resolution of 720p @ 30fps . But this is not all, because like any device today, the Alcatel OneTouch Pop C7 includes a second camera, located on the front of the computer, with a VGA resolution. It is a basic quality component that will help us to capture selfies and make video calls.
But the thing does not end here, because the Alcatel OneTouch Pop C7 is also a device prepared for the reproduction of multimedia content. So much so, that it is compatible with most of the most used extensions (music, video and photos). Users, on the other hand, will have the opportunity to alternate the playback of their favorite files with FM Radio with RDS and online services such as YouTube or Spotify .
Memory and power
The Alcatel OneTouch Pop C7 is presented in two different versions. On the one hand we have the one with a single SIM, equipped with a 1 GB RAM memory ; on the other, the dual SIM version with 512 MB capacity. Both computers, yes, work through a quad- core processor (Quad Core) capable of running at a clock frequency of 1.3 GHz . To this must be added an internal memory of up to 4 GB that users can use to store all kinds of content (music, videos, photos) and applications. In addition, if this capacity falls short, there would be the possibility of expanding it with microSD cards up to 32 GB .
Operating system and applications
Like practically all Alcatel equipment , the Alcatel OneTouch Pop C7 works through the fashionable operating system: Android . And although the ideal would be for the phone to have a more recent version, we have to indicate that the Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) version is installed as standard . It is possible, however, that in time it may be updated to a current edition (read Android 4.4 KitKat ). By having Google's operating system integrated , users will enjoy all the services that the Mountain View company offers for free. We refer to the following:Google Search, Google Maps with Navigation, YouTube, Picasa, Hangouts, etc. In addition, users will have the opportunity to connect to Google Play to download new content and applications to expand and improve the functions of the equipment.
The Alcatel OneTouch Pop C7 is well prepared when it comes to connectivity. In fact, you will see that it maintains compatibility with 3G networks (HSDPA at 21 Mbps / HSUPA at 5.76 Mbps), WiFi 802.11 b / g / n, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS with A-GPS . As for the external connections, we have to talk about a microUSB 2.0 input, a 3.5 mm output for headphones and a microSD card slot. The device with Dual SIM , logically, has two card slots that will allow users to carry up to two lines in the same terminal.
Autonomy and availability
And we end with one of the most important issues in the analysis: the autonomy of the team, a detail that greatly worries a large majority of users. The two models sold by Alcatel alternate batteries with a capacity of 1,900 and 2,000 milliamps , capable of providing a range of 600 hours in standby and 9 hours in conversation . In any case, it should be borne in mind that these times can be modified by different external factors such as the functions that each user keeps active, connectivity, network status or temperature.
Regarding its availability, we can indicate that the Alcatel OneTouch Pop C7 is already on sale in Spain . Its price in the free market is 110 euros .
