Description

The Alcatel POP 4S is a phablet with a 5.5-inch 1080 x 1920 display (400 PPI – quite crisp), an octa-core MediaTek Helio P10 (4 cores clocked at 1.8 GHz, 4 clocked at 1 GHz), 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of storage, expandable via microSD of up to 64 GB. Its main camera has a 13 MP sensor with an aperture of F2.0, assisted by phase detection autofocus, dual-tone LED flash, and electronic image stabilization. On the front, we have the same wide-angle selfie snapper with LED flash as the lower-end POP models. The POP 4S also has a larger juicebox – 2,960 mAh. As an added bonus, it has a fingerprint scanner for quick unlocks.

Display

  • Physical size:
    • 5.5 inches
  • Resolution:
    • 1080 x 1920 pixels
  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 401 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

Hardware

  • System chip:

    System chip - Most modern handsets use an advanced chip that includes many of the device’s hardware modules like the processor, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and sometimes even the wireless radio. This field shows what particular system chip (or System-on-a-Chip) is used in the phone.

    • MediaTek Helio P10 MT6755
  • Processor:

    Processor - The processor is the main computing component of a phone and is a major factor when it comes to the overall speed of the device. Some more powerful smartphones use dual-core and quad-core processors designed to deliver greater performance.

    • Octa-core, 1800 MHz, ARM Cortex-A53, 64-bit
  • Graphics processor:

    Graphics processor - The graphics processor is important for the smooth operation of the system and especially in games and other applications that may involve complex graphics and animations.

      • Mali-T860 MP2
  • System memory:

    System memory - System memory, or RAM memory is the type of memory that the device uses to temporarily store data from the OS or currently-running apps. The more RAM available to the device, the better the performance will be when multiple or heavier programs are running.

    • 2 GB RAM
  • Built-in storage:

    Built-in storage - Bigger storage capacity allows you to keep more content saved onto your device, such as more applications, photos or video. Games and video content typically take up the biggest amount of storage space.

    • 16 GB
  • Storage expansion:

    Storage expansion - Some handsets allow you to expand their storage capacity by using a memory expansion card – most often microSD. Expansion memory is mostly suitable for media storage, such as photo, video or music content.

    • microSD, microSDHC, microSDXC up to 64 GB
