Here's what you need to know about the Alcatel OneTouch Pop Icon for Walmart's StraightTalk network: It's got Android 4.4 and 3G, and it'll cost less than $150 all-in.

Aside from those top-line facts, you should also know that the phone has a spacious 5-inch screen, with a fairly low 854x480 FWVGA resolution.

There's a 5-megapixel camera on the back, and a 0.3-megapixel camera on the front. Inside is a 1.2GHz quad-core processor that Alcatel has been using on almost all of its entry-level and midrange phones for the US.

The Pop Icon's 4GB of internal storage won't give you much room to roam, but you can add up to 32GB more if you buy a microSD card.

HD Voice and an FM radio are two other perks you'll get along with the typical Android services.
