Cheap and chic

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.

Small screen

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

Front camera

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.

Capacitive buttons

Instead of physical buttons on the Pop S3, the phone has capacitive buttons for the home, back, and menu options.

Not so thin

The phone, which measures 4.84 inches by 2.54 inches by 0.39 inch, isn't particularly thin compared with other budget phones.

Internal guts

Inside, the Pop S3 has a quad-core 1.2GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, and 4GB of onboard storage that you can expand up to 32GB. It runs Android 4.3, but will get upgraded to 4.4 KitKat in May or June. There's also a removable 2,000mAh battery.
