The Alcatel One Touch Pop 3 is the lowest-cost device in the Pop S range, but it packs a lot of style. The device comes in five color options, and you can swap colors if you so desire. At 149 euros ($200), it won't break the bank.

The Pop S3's 4-inch display comes in at 800x480 pixels (WVGA). With that resolution, fonts and icons don't look sharp.

The 0.3-megapixel VGA front-facing camera won't take impressive selfies, but it's there if you want it. There's also a 5-megapixel camera on the back.

Not so thin
