The challenger brand in Australia, Alcatel sell more phones than most of the other brands you can name – other than Samsung and Apple, and with phones like the Pop 4 it’s little wonder as to why. Simple concept, good features at a price that even a teenager won’t baulk at.

Alcatel’s Pop 4 is a 5 inch 4G smartphone with a quad-core processor that was “created with tech-savvy millennials and Gen Z in mind”.

Aussie boss of Alcatel Sam Skontos says “We’re excited to be launching the POP 4, a smartly priced smartphone which truly epitomises the millennial way of life – its dynamic, fun, and reflects individual personality and style,”

Perhaps most appealing to those young selfie-lovers is the integrated flash both front and back – rare on any phone let alone at $120!

Oh, and if you’re standing around and love the colour of the room you’re in, the car you walk past or the drink bottle in your hand, use the “Colour Catcher” to capture that colour and transform the phone’s theme and wallpaper to suit. Simple and fun feature.
