Alcatel OneTouch POP ASTRO arrives to T-Mobile, LTE and voice over Wi-FI for $150
These days there is no shortage of low-priced but solid performing handsets in the Android world, with some of the best known options coming from Motorola, HUAWEI, and ASUS. Alcatel is now partnering up with T-Mobile to bring yet another option, the Alcatel OneTouch Pop ASTRO.
Aside from the overly long and complicated name that we expect from Alcatel, the handset offers pretty low-end specs including a 4.5-inch TFT display with a 540 x 960 resolution, a 1.5GHz quad-core MediaTek 6732 SOC, 1GB RAM, 4GB storage, microSD, a 5MP front cam, .3MP rear cam, a 2,000 mAh battery, LTE, voice over Wi-Fi, and Android 4.4 KitKat with the Alcatel skin on top.

As for the pricing? You’ll pay either $179.76 off contract, or you can get it for $6.24 per month through a T-Mobile payment plan.
Should you actually get the phone? If your needs are modest, it’ll probably provide more than a good enough Android experience, but honestly, it’s hard to recommend this one when there are so many similarly priced devices that pack higher resolution displays and better processing packages. Really the only things the Pop ASTRO have going for it are the addition of LTE and voice over Wi-Fi support.
What do you think of the Pop ASTRO? Worth buying or not? For those interested, you can pick up the phone starting today.
