Looking to give the hugely popular Motorola MOTO G a run for its money, EE have released the new 4G enabled Alcatel One Touch POP S3 smart phone which offers the same 5 mega pixel camera and the same speed quad-core 1.2GHz processor but at a cheaper price!
Alcatel OT POP S3 – Cheapest 4G Phone
The competing Motorola MOTO G currently comes in at around £100 (not 4G) and £150 (4G) whilst this new Alcatel POP S3 is £20 cheaper than the 3G and a whopping £70 cheaper than the 4G MOTO G at just £79.99.
The differences between the phones are that this new Alcatel phone has a slightly smaller display at 4 inches with a little less resolution, 4GB rather than 8GB internal memory (but will accept MicroSD cards up to 32GB) and the POP S3 is lighter at just 130g vs 143g.
Like the MOTO G the POP S3 also features interchangeable back covers and there’s 3 already in the box when you buy yours … slate, yellow and white!

Those looking for an affordable 4G smartphone now have another option to consider thanks to the release of the new Alcatel One Touch POP S3. It’s now available to buy from EE for just £79.99 on Pay As You Go (plus £10 top-up).
For your money you get a mobile phone with a 4-inch display (800 x 480 pixels) with dimensions of 123 x 64.4 x 9.85mm and a weight of just 130g. It’s powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, has 1GB of RAM and 4GB of onboard memory (with microSD support).
On the rear you’ll find a 5 mega-pixel camera with an LED flash that is capable of recording 1080p video which is backed up by a 0.3 mega-pixel front-facing snapper. The Android Jelly Bean powered smartphone is fully connected supporting 4G LTE (Cat 4), WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 and it even has an FM radio.
Inside the box you also get 3 interchangeable back covers (White, Yellow and Slate), which is sure to go down a treat with the younger crowd. All-in-all it’s a great smartphone which bags you Superfast 4G for under £80!
