Alcatel One Touch S'Pop hands-on

Alcatel One Touch S'Pop hands-on
Alcatel's One Touch Android smartphone line-up is going through a total overhaul, and the One Touch S'Pop is a step up from its smaller entry level relative, the One Touch T'Pop.  The S'Pop is Alcatel's "Small Wonder."

The S'Pop has the benefit of being loaded with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and despite its single-core 1GHz MediaTek processor, you can really see the benefit of Project Butter in action.  The device did not seem to suffer any lag or hesitation.  The screen is 3.5-inches with HVGA resolution (480x320).  There is a VGA front facing camera and the main camera is the same 3.2MP camera found on the T'Pop, however, the S'Pop has a dedicated camera button on the right side of the handset.

The S'Pop is a quad-band GSM with HSPA on 850/1900/2100MHz, has 2GB of storage which is expandable with microSD cards.  There was no pricing, release date or carrier information announced by Alcatel for the One Touch S'Pop.  Like the T'Pop, the S'Pop is compact, and is easy to hold.  While it is a lower end smartphone it does not feel cheap.  The Alcatel user interface is more like a theme as the Android experience looks and feels like stock.

Bought this phone last Saturday and very disapointed. Screen is not touch friendly. Have missed loads of calls because of this,try touching the answer button on an incoming call and nothing happens resulting in a missed call. I use the phone for work so its most important it performs as it should.Think i will leave it back with the phone shop. Anybody with any answers please reply. Thanks
