Alcatel Pop4 Tablet Review

The Android tablet class is gradually getting to be dormant. With each passing year, we have seen a plunge in the number of item dispatches, with most makers shutting the entryways on this item class totally. Then again, Apple has been offering its iPad for a long while now, and as of late propelled the iPad (2018), however, it can't be viewed as a minimal effort tablet. Presently, Alcatel is wanting to make some fervor in the spending Android tablet classification by propelling the Alcatel Pop4.

The new tablet was propelled at Rs. 12,999 and an accompanies a console connection. With practically zero rivalries from other Android tablet makers, is the Alcatel Pop4 the best gadget to claim? We put it under serious scrutiny.

Alcatel Pop4 design

It is uncommon to see new outlines with regards to tablets, as most producers tend to keep things basic. Alcatel has likewise avoided any risk, and thus, the Alcatel Pop4 has a normal rectangular body. This gadget is very huge and packs in a 10.1-inch show, which makes it difficult to hold and utilize it in one hand.

The Alcatel Pop4 utilizes fantastic plastic in its development and did not squeak amid our chance with the unit. It has thick fringes above and underneath the screen that house stereo speakers. At the best, there's a Micro-USB port, 3.5mm earphone attachment, and a mouthpiece. The back is plain and houses an 8-megapixel camera in the best corner, which projects marginally. Since the Pop4 underpins 4G, it has a SIM space at the back alongside a microSD card opening that acknowledges cards of up to 32GB.

While the tablet is enormous, it isn't overwhelming. It has a 5830mAh battery and you get a 10W charger in the container. While it isn't anything but difficult to take selfies with tablets, Alcatel has included a 5-megapixel selfie shooter at the front.

Alcatel additionally packages a console with the Pop4 to empower clients to utilize it like a 2-in-1. You can basically drop the tablet into the console dock which has magnets to keep it set up. We found that there were no markers or particular focuses to adjust the two units, and thus, we were frequently left second-speculating whether the tablet was safely connected. The console has its own battery that should be charged utilizing the Micro-USB port as an afterthought. It utilizes Bluetooth to interface with the tablet.

Alcatel Pop4 specifications, performance, and battery life

The 10.1-inch show on the Pop4 has a determination of 1920x1200 pixels, and survey points are normal. The front-terminating stereo speakers add to the general understanding of watching video on this tablet. In any case, we found that it isn't as distinctive as some different boards we have found in this value go. Likewise, the splendor feels low even subsequent to knocking everything on the path up. Controlling the gadget is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor, generally found in spending plan cell phones, for example, the Moto G5S and the Nokia 6. It has 2GB of RAM and 16GB of inner stockpiling. There's a considerable measure of preinstalled programming, in light of which you get under 4GB of free stockpiling out-of-the-container. You should fly in a microSD card to have enough space for your applications and amusements.

The tablet comes preloaded with a couple of applications including AVG AntiVirus, a different application store called Apps, Asphalt Nitro, Flipkart, Instagram, Messenger, WPS Office, and an application called NCERT Books which has to think about materials for understudies from Class 1 to 12. It has books and concentrates material that is affirmed by the National Council Of Educational Research And Training that ought to be particularly helpful for understudies who can read their course-related books or fathom test question papers for training. A portion of the applications can be uninstalled, yet a couple must be debilitated.

Since the Alcatel Pop4 is a 4G tablet with voice calling support, you can embed a SIM and make telephone calls or utilize cell information in a hurry. We utilized Airtel and Jio SIM cards amid our audit time frame and found that the tablet works with 4G, however, there is no help for VoLTE. Calls are dependable on the speakerphone, and you should connect to a headset to keep them private.

While packaging the console with the tablet was a decent choice, shipping it with Android 6.0 Marshmallow wasn't. This form of Android is obsolete and was discharged more than two years prior. This means there is a considerable amount of Android includes that the Pop4 is missing. The security isn't a la mode either, and our survey unit was running the November 2017 fix.

Alcatel utilizes a custom launcher on the Pop4, however, everything else looks like stock Android. It gets two or three easy routes, giving you a chance to wake the gadget up by twofold tapping the show or starting up the camera application by twofold squeezing the power catch. Much the same as stock Android, you get a multi-client mode which gives you a chance to make different client profiles. This is great if there's in excess of one individual utilizing the tablet, for example, in a family or classroom. Nonetheless, the low inward stockpiling implies that you should put resources into a microSD card before utilizing this component.

While utilizing the tablet, we experienced slack once in a while, and it took longer than we would have gotten a kick out of the chance to stack a couple of applications. We played amusements including Missiles, Clash Royale, and Shadow Fight 3 on the Pop4. Shadow Fight 3 took longer than normal to load and we saw a couple of dropped outlines, however alternate diversions kept running with no issues. We ran our benchmark tests on the Pop4, and it figured out how to return 46,288 in AnTuTu 7, and 629 and 1,825 in the single-center and multi-center tests in Geekbench 4.

We found that the console was helpful to utilize. It has a standard QWERTY design with a couple of additional catches for Back, Home, and the application switcher capacities. The keys feel somewhat delicate and don't offer great input, which made us second-figure keystrokes a few times. Alcatel has included MaxxAudio bolster which can enhance sound quality a bit. The speakers can get noisy, which is great when watching motion pictures.

Alcatel hasn't expressed the battery limit of the console yet guarantees 4,000 long periods of backup time. In the event that you are on a film marathon impacting sound, you ought to have the capacity to complete two or three motion pictures before the "low battery" cautioning flies up. We utilized the tablet for short gaming sessions, altering reports with the console, and viewing a couple of recordings while being associated with Wi-Fi. With our blended utilization, we could figure out how to end the day with near 30 percent of the battery left. In our HD video circle test, the tablet oversaw 9 hours and 48 minutes. In the event that your use is low, at that point you won't have to charge the gadget all the time. Likewise, the provided 10W charger is truly moderate, and it takes near four hours to charge the Pop4 totally.

Alcatel Pop4 Tablet

Tablets aren't known for their camera execution and the Pop4 is no exemption. Its 8-megapixel essential camera needs self-adjust and there is no blaze. The camera application is exposed fundamental and just has the photograph, video and display modes. In photograph mode, you additionally get fast switches for HDR and night mode. Photographs taken with the Pop4 were beneath normal and the absence of self-adjust made it difficult to get sharp shots. We found that photographs needed detail, and some additionally had a watercolor impact and chroma clamor.

Taking macros isn't simple and you should physically move towards or far from the subject to get a not too bad shot. The night mode flip in the camera application is ineffectual and it scarcely had any effect in low light conditions. The execution of the selfie camera isn't any better. Since the camera is in one corner of the tablet, you should position it clumsily with a specific end goal to outline shots. The photograph quality isn't great you won't have the capacity to utilize it for anything genuine.


With the decrease in the Android tablet advertises, there are not very many choices to look over. Alcatel has figured out how to get a couple of things ideal with the Pop4, for example, its full-HD show and front-terminating stereo speakers, and it's respectable for amusement. Most tablets at this value point have HD shows giving the Pop4 a slight edge. Be that as it may, the two-year-old programming is certifiably not a decent stage, to begin with. Battery life is alright, yet charging takes quite a while. Considering the cost and the execution that you get, you could go for the Alcatel Pop4, yet in the event that you require a gadget that is to a greater extent a PC than a tablet, the iBall Compbook Marvel 6 resembles a more adaptable gadget at generally a similar cost.
