PC Magazine

An unremarkable and affordable Android phablet

from PC Magazine
Big-screen phone fans on Straight Talk don't have a ton of great options, which helps elevate the otherwise unimpressive Alcatel One Touch Pop Mega. You get a lot of phone for just $250, even if the display resolution leaves something to be desired. The Pop Mega delivers a modern Android phablet experience, and the Buddy accessory will be a boon for heavy callers who don't like the idea of holding a massive phone to their face... Full review

This is the greatest phone I have seen for its price in a long, long time

Great Phone for its cheap price, Quad-Core is very outstandingly fast, and its system allows the assimilation of its 32 Gb external micro-sd you put in it to work as its own internal memory easily. Its 1.2 Ghrz processor as listed works pretty good but I think most of the weight should be attributed... More
Great Phone for its cheap price, Quad-Core is very outstandingly fast, and its system allows the assimilation of its 32 Gb external micro-sd you put in it to work as its own internal memory easily. Its 1.2 Ghrz processor as listed works pretty good but I think most of the weight should be attributed to to its quad-core. It would be great if it had a 2.4 Ghrz processor but hey this is not fast food, we cant always have it our way. Graphic, screen resolution and gyro are great also. Gyros and games response is seamless. If I had to group this phone in a box with others and it didn't have a label, most likely it will be in a box next to a Samsung resolution wise. The only negative is that no one has any accessory for this 6+ inch phone, and that's understandable as the rest of the world is focused on a version 6 of other phones. Less
