Alcatel Onetouch ICON Pop Tracfone - Specs and Buying Guide

The Alcatel Onetouch ICON Pop (A564C) Released for Tracfone

We are sharing details and specs below about the Alcatel A564C touchscreen smartphone newly released for use with Tracfone Wireless. TracfoneReviewer will continue to update this post as more information is available.

The Alcatel Onetouch ICON Pop has a really long name, and also a really large screen, the largest for a Tracfone device yet, at 5". This phone was released by Tracfone rather quickly, along with the LG Ultimate 2.

Tracfone is moving a little faster at adding new Android smartphones to their lineup that already includes several other options. But until now they were lacking a smartphone with a larger screen size, and the Alcatel Onetouch (and LG Ultimate 2) appears to fill that void.

The previous screen size options were the LG Optimus Fuel with a 3.5" touchscreen, and the LG Optimus Dynamic II at 3.8", among others.

The Samsung Galaxy Ace Style, with a 4" touchscreen, and the Moto E, with 4.3" touchscreen, are both expected to be released in the near future, but have been overtaken before even being released. The LG Ultimate 2, which was released at the same time as the Icon Pop, has a 4.5" screen, and shares many similar features and specs.

In case you're wondering (like we were), here is the breakdown of why the name is so long. Alcatel is the company name, Onetouch is the name of the line of phones, and Icon Pop ( or sometimes POP Icon) is the name of this phone. There are a few other Alcatel Onetouch phones, like the Pop Mega, and Pop Star, but Tracfone isn't adding them to their selection. Tracfone then classifies this as the A564C, with 'C' denoting that it uses CDMA technology.

Let's look at what you can expect from the Alcatel Icon Pop.

What to Expect from the Alcatel Onetouch Icon Pop on Tracfone

First off, the Icon Pop will be used on Verizon CDMA 3G service through Tracfone prepaid. This is the same as Tracfone's other Smartphone offerings at this time.

It will have Triple Minutes for Life, and minutes will be separated into Talk, Text and Data. For more info on this, read our post, How Minutes Work on Tracfone Android Phones.

The 5" touchscreen is obviously the most noticeable feature on the Alcatel A564C, but there are several other features that are very exciting for Tracfone users who are looking for an upgrade on their current phones.

Time to take a closer look at the Icon Pop features and specs.

Alcatel Onetouch Icon Pop Features and Specs

We will cover the main features for the A564C, followed by the technical specifications below.
  • Android 4.4
  • 3G on Verizon networks
  • WiFi
  • 5MP Rear Camera
  • 0.3MP Front Camera
  • Bluetooth
  • GPS
  • Large Screen Icons
  • Hearing Aid Compatible, Hands free Speaker
  • MP3 Player, FM Radio
  • Triple Minutes for Life
  • Flashlight
  • Caller ID, Call Waiting, Voicemail, etc.
  • Voice Dialing
  • Access to over 1 Million apps via Google Play
Alcatel A564C Icon Pop Specs:
  • Size: 5.55" x 2.84" x 0.39"
  • 5" touschreen (854 x 480)
  • 1.2 Ghz Quad-core processor
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 4 GB Internal Memory(~2GB available), Up to 32 GB Micro SD card Compatible
  • Weight: 5.2 Ounces
  • 2000 mAh Battery with 9.5 hours talk time, 20 days standby (2.5 hrs to fully charge)

Alcatel Onetouch Icon Pop and 5" screen
A number of the features and specs listed above for the Alcatel Ontouch Icon Pop are improvements over Tracfone's older smartphones, and similar to the Moto E and LG Ultimate 2. Let's take a closer look.

One of the big features is the processor and RAM on the Icon pop. With a quad core and 1 GB, it should be able to keep up with your needs. The LG Ultimate 2 and Moto E each have 1 GB of RAM and 1.2 Ghz processors, but they are only dual core. Other Android phones like the ZTE Valet and LG Optimus Dyamic II are single core with 512 MB RAM.

Another big feature on the Alcatel Onetouch Icon Pop is the camera. It has a 5MP rear camera plus a 0.3MP front camera. And after looking through sources, it appears to have autofocus.

The Ultimate 2 also has a 5MP camera with autofocus, and 1.3MP front camera. But the Moto E only has a 5MP rear camera and no autofocus.

Lastly, the 5" screen is a nice feature, and a bit bigger than the other smartphones from Tracfone at this time as we mentioned above. Some sources indicate that it has a resolution of 854 x 480 while we found others saying 960 x 540. 

Our Thoughts on the Alcatel Onetouch Icon Pop

This phone brings some great new features to the table with a 5" screen and quad core processor. While this phone is still at the low end of the smartphone market, it is ahead of many of Tracfone's other devices.

Each new phone that Tracfone releases pushes the list of features further and further into what other carriers are using. Tracfone is still behind the curve, but they are trying to catch up. It is unlikely they will ever sell top of the line phones with their prepaid service, but at least users can get some newer tech.

The Alcatel Onetouch Icon Pop is a a great looking phone with a nice large screen, but is it better than the Moto E and LG Ultimate 2? Spec-wise, it does have more processing cores, and a larger screen, but each user must choose what is important to themselves when selecting a phone. Not everyone, for example, wants a 5" screen.

At $150 from the Tracfone website, the Alcatel Icon Pop is the most expensive Tracfone yet. We  have just found the Alcatel on Amazon, as well as eBay with several attractive minutes bundles, and at a slightly discounted price:

Alcatel Onetouch Icon Pop available on Amazozn and eBay with Minutes options:

Alcatel Onetouch Icon Pop on Amazon for $129 (plus $5 shipping)

Alcatel Onetouch Icon Pop on eBay for $119

Alcatel Onetouch Icon Pop with 600 Minutes on eBay for $169

These are some pretty decent deals if you're looking to buy the phone along with minutes. Last check the Alcatel was in and out of stock on Tracfone's site. So if you are looking for this phone, you might want to move fast!

We will also be doing a full review of the Alcatel smartphone in the near future.

The Alcatel will be great for those looking for a big phone, and looking to impress with a large screen. Although these days, 6" screens or bigger seems to be necessary.

Let us know what you're thinking about this phone, and if you have any questions about it.

Here is the Alcatel ontouch interactive tutorial to see how the phone works.

LG ULTIMATE 2 Review and Specs for Tracfone

Tracfone LG Ultimate 2 Android Smartphone now Available!

Below we will share details and specs for the LG Ultimate 2 which was recently made available for use with Tracfone. TracfoneReviewer will continue to update this post as more information becomes available.

Tracfone LG L41C
Tracfone LG Ultimate 2
Note: The LG Ultimate 2 is now available with Minutes Bundle from eBay! See the last section below for links to the phone on both Amazon and eBay.

Another Android powered smartphone for use with Tracfone, has been released and it is the LG L41C, also known as the LG Ultimate 2. Tracfone continues to release newer, and slightly better, smartphones for use on their prepaid service.

The LG Ultimate 2 comes with Android 4.4 OS, a 5MP camera with autofocus, 1 GB RAM and uses Verizon 3G cell towers. It also havs a 4.5" screen, which will make many Tracfone users very excited.

Along with the LG Ultimate 2, there are several other Android phones coming, or already available for use with Tracfone. The LG Optimus Fuel, Samsung Galaxy Ace Style, and Moto E are some of the other options. You can also see the full list of smartphones by visiting our Tracfone Android Smartphone List. The Alcatel A564C Onetouch Icon Pop was also released by Tracfone, and we will be posting more on that very soon. It has a 5" screen, and Android 4.4, as well as a quad care processor.

Tracfone has a number of phones that they may be releasing in the future, like the Moto E, and possibly several Android phones for use on GSM networks. Keep up with our latest news and posts by following us on Facebook.

Now, let's take a closer look at what to expect from the LG Ultimate 2.

Tracfone LG L41C - What to Expect

Many of the details about the LG Ultimate 2 have become clear over the last few months that the phone has been available. It has become widely accepted as one of the best phones currently available from Tracfone, a long with the Moto E, and Alcatel Onetouch.

The LG Ultimate 2 has already been spotted for use with Straight Talk, and at a price of $130. It is also now listed on the Tracfone website for the same price, but is available from many online retailers like Amazon, eBay, HSN, and others, for just over $100.

The Ultimate 2 is basically very similar to the Verizon prepaid LG Optimus Exceed 2. which appears to be a well rounded smartphone.

You can expect easy viewing on the LG Ultimate 2's 4.5" touchscreen (800x400) that will make it bigger than the LG Optimus Fuel, Moto E, or LG Optimus Dynamic II. Only the Alcatel Onetouch Icon Pop has a larger screen at this time, at 5".

As mentioned above, the dual core processor and 1 GB RAM give the Ultimate 2 good performance, and the ability to keep up with almost any app currently available for Androids. Many consumers are extremely happy to have the opportunity to upgrade from single core, 512 MB phones.

Another great feature that may be the most important for some people, is the amount of internal memory available for loading apps and other things. Initially it appeared that the LG Ultimate 2 would have 4GB of Internal Memory, with somewhat less than that actually usable. However, it has been reported that there is over 4GB of usable space on the LG Ultimate 2, meaning that it probably comes with 5GB or more of internal memory.

The Cameras on the LG Ultimate 2 are nothing amazing, but if you've been stuck with the cameras on older phones it will be a refreshing upgrade. The Ultimate 2 comes with a 5MP rear camera, and 1.3MP front camera. Both a capable of good pictures, and the rear camera has autofocus for reading bar codes etc.

Below is a list of the features and specifications for the Tracfone LG Ultimate 2.

LG Ultimate 2 Feature and Specs

First the features, and below the technical specs for the LG L41C.
  • Android 4.4
  • 3G on Verizon CDMA Networks
  • WiFi
  • 5MP Camera with Auto-focus
  • 1.3MP front facing camera
  • 3 Home Screens
  • Proximity Sensor
  • Bluetooth
  • GPS Enabled
  • Handsfree speaker, Hearing Aid Compatible
  • Call Waiting, Caller ID, Email, MMS, Voicemail
  • Voice Dialing
  • MP3 Player
  • Triple Minutes for Lfie and separate Call/Text/Data pools
  • Access to over 1 Million apps on Google Play
 LG Ultimate 2 (L41C) Technical Specifications:
  • 5.01" x 2.63" x 0.38"
  • 4.5" IPS at 800x480 (240 DPI)
  • 1.2 Ghz Dual-core processor (Qualcomm)
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 5 GB Internal Memory (over 4GB usable space), up to 32GB Micro SD card compatible 
  • Weight: 4.5 ounces
  • 2100 mAh Battery with 12 hours talk time/ 9 days standby
tracfone lg l41c ultimate 2
LG Ultimate 2 Keyboard
The L41C has some decent specs, with 1 GB of RAM, and a nice large screen, almost a full inch large than the previous phones.

While the battery is a decent size at 2100 mAh, the talk time and standby are less than the Moto E (which only has a 1980 mAh battery). It should last a full day with moderate use, but if you need a long battery life, the Moto E does an excellent job managing power consumption. Also turning GPS, WiFi and Data off will help conserve battery life.

Many of the other specs on the Ultimate 2 are a big improvement over phones like the LG Optimus Dynamic II, ZTE Valet, and Samsung Galaxy Centura.

Tracfone was relatively quick in releasing the the LG Ultimate 2 and Alcatel Onetouch Icon Pop. We heard about the Samsung Galaxy Ace Style months ago, but it has not surfaced, and may even be a lesser option with these new phones now available.

LG Ultimate 2 Review and Thoughts

So how does the Ultimate 2 perform, and what are our likes and dislikes about the phone? Glad you asked! Let's jump right in. We've collected a lot of information from around the web, and even from user comments below to share as balanced a review of the LG Ultimate 2 as we can.

Best Features and Likes for the Ultimate 2
We want to focus here on a few key features for the Ultimate 2 that make it stand out from other phones available from Tracfone at this time, and that might be important for those looking at buying this phone.

The internal memory and RAM, screen size, and cameras are some of the biggest factors that may lead you to be interested in the LG Ultimate 2, so let's take a closer look.

The internal memory for the Ultimate 2 is the space available for installing Android apps, and saving other data like pictures. The Ultimate 2 comes with over 4 GB of usable space, which is a lot compared to the 2 GB or less available on most other Tracfone smartphones. And some apps and data can even be transferred to an external SD card, freeing up additional space.

1 GB of RAM and a dual-core processor are about the minimum needed these days to comfortable run all the popular apps on an Android smartphone, and the LG Ultimate 2 meets this just fine. Many users report 200 MB or more of available RAM at any given time, and if you use a speed boosting app you can get even more free space. For those that might not know, RAM basically allows you to run multiple apps at the same time. So more RAM means more things can go on at once without problems, and less RAM means less stuff at once. When you get to 512 MB of RAM or less, you start to run into issues with overloading the RAM, which causes apps to close and other annoying stuff.

The LG Ultimate 2 has a 4.5" touchscreen. which is one of the biggest features for this phone. Previously, Tracfone only had phones with 3.5" to 3.8" screens, which may be fine for some people, but for others it is just a little too small. 4.5" is a nice screen size for reading, watching videos, typing on the virtual QWERTY keyboard, and really everything else. The only reason why one might not want a screen that large is for portability. But these days a 4.5" screen is average sized, and in no way uncomfortable to hold or use. Screen quality is very good, with 480x800 size, and 240 dpi.

Finally, front and rear facing cameras with flash and autofocus are a feature many Tracfone users have desired for a long time, and the LG Ultimate 2 delivers. The 5MP rear camera performs well and functions as it should. You can scan barcodes or QR codes with it, and the image quality is one of the best for Tracfone devices. Remember that if you want to send an image, you need to turn on you data.

Many users report being extremely satisfied with the Ultimate 2, as it is a phone with enough modern specs to keep up with other devices. The ability to have a smartphone running Android 4.4 on Tracfone's low cost network is a great thing.

But now we do want to share a few negatives about the phone to keep in mind.

Dislikes for the Ultimate 2 with Tracfone
First off, there is a lot to like about the Ultimate 2. It has a large screen, good cameras, great amount of memory available, good processor and RAM, and plenty of other things. But there are a few things to be aware of before you purchase it.

Many of the negatives with the LG Ultimate 2 actually revolve around using it with Tracfone service, and so aren't directly related to the phone. However, since you must use this phone with Tracfone, we will cover them here.

Our dislikes for the Ultimate 2 include using Verizon cell towers, splitting texts, calling and data up, tracking minutes, and it doesn't use the latest version of Android. If you already use Tracfone, and especially if you already use an Android phone with Tracfone, then you already know most of these issues.

Tracfone currently only uses Verizon 3G CDMA cell phone towers for all their Android devices. This works great if you live in an area with good coverage. If you don't, then it isn't so great. You should check with friends or neighbors in your area to see if they use Verizon, and you can also enter your ZIP code on the Tracfone website and see if the Android phones come up, which will help indicate if there is good service in your area.

However, if Tracfone doesn't show Android phones for your area, or tells you that you can't activate a smartphone at your ZIP code, that doesn't necessarily mean you won't get service there! Many users report activating their smartphone using a ZIP code from another area, and then having  no problem with reception. Just be aware that you are taking responsibility for the risk.

For all Tracfone Android and BYOP phones, prepaid minutes are split into three buckets or pools. You have calling minutes, texts, and data. All airtime is also tripled when adding it to the phone. This is generally a great deal for most people. However, for heavy texters, you might run out of texts more quickly, and there is no way to just buy more texts, you will have to buy a regular minutes card. This isn't a big deal for most people, but be aware of it.

Tracking minutes on the Android phones isn't as easy as before. Older 'dumb' phones displayed your remaining minutes and service time on the home-screen, and this isn't possible on Android devices. But it is easy enough to go online to the Tracfone website and check your balance there, or download and use the Tracfone app (just search for Tracfone app in the Google Play Store).

The LG Ultimate 2 runs on Android 4.4, which is no longer the latest version of Android. The latest is 5.0 lolipop, and the Ultimate 2 will not be updated to it. Don't worry though, Android 5.0 isn't really that great in my opinion, and mostly just changes the appearance for a lot of things, and adds extra steps for several functions.

As a final negative for all the Android phones, you can't use Promotional Codes with Tracfone Android devices. This isn't a huge deal, but for those that rely on the extra minutes, it is disappointing.

Overall, consumers who haven't used a Tracfone device may be disappointed with the customer service, and sometimes limited coverage of cell service, but for everyone familiar with Tracfone, the service shouldn't be any different.

Our opinion of the LG Ultimate 2 is very high, as it meets or exceeds many expectations for a good, modern smartphone. It is worth the money, especially if you buy it bundled with minutes.

Compared to the Moto E and Alcatel Onetouch Icon Pop
LG Ultimate 2 Review
LG Ultimate 2
Two other Tracfone devices that are on par with the Ultimate 2 are the Moto E, and Alcatel Onetouch. We will quickly compare each of these phones to the Ultimate 2 in case you are considering them.

The Moto E is a well designed budget smartphone in the same lineup as the Moto G and Moto X. The Moto E has a smaller, 4.3" screen, but it is slightly better quality. The Moto E doesn't have a front camera, nor autofocus or flash, which are deal-breakers for some. The Moto E also doesn't accept an external SD card, so you're stuck with just the internal memory. Battery life is probably better on the Moto E, but the battery isn't removable. Overall, the Moto E is a great phone, but the Ultimate 2 beats it in many categories.

The Alcatel Onetouch Icon Pop features a larger, 5" screen and quad-core processor. If you want the biggest screen available, the Onetouch is your choice. But users report some minor video lag when watching Youtube, and in general, the Ultimate 2 is a better all around phone. They both have front/rear cameras, and both 1 GB RAM. The Alcatel Onetouch has around 2GB of internal memory, which is a bit less than the Ultimate 2. So if you want the largest screen, go with the Alcatel, but otherwise, the Ultimate 2 is a slightly better choice.

For some sample pictures, and more information on the performance of the LG Ultimate 2, check out this forum post.

Each of the Android smartphones released by Tracfone have certain strengths and weaknesses and the LG Ultimate 2 is no different.

You can take a look at the LG Ultimate 2 Interactive Tutorial to get a better feel for how the phone looks.

We hope the information provided here was useful to you. Let us know your questions and thoughts about the Ultimate 2 in the comments section below. Also take a look at what others have to say.

If you haven't already, take a look at our List of the Best Android Apps for Tracfone users.

Where to Buy/Find the LG Ultimate 2

As we mentioned, the LG L41C is retailing on the Tracfone website for about $130. However, it has recently disappeared from their site (likely it went out of stock) and cannot be purchased directly from them at this time. But you can buy it elsewhere with no problem, and often much cheaper!

The Ultimate 2 has been available bundled with minutes on QVC and similar sites, but limited quantities.

The LG Ultimate 2 is also finally available on eBay and Amazon, with several options to choose from:

LG Ultimate 2 on Amazon for $119 now $69

LG Ultimate 2 on Amazon with 1200 Minutes for $149 now $109

LG Ultimate 2 on eBay for just $99 now $69

LG Ultimate 2 with 600 Minutes on eBay for $149

LG Ultimate 2 with 1200 Minutes on eBay for $199 (currently on sale for $129)

No word yet on when/if the Ultimate 2 will be available from other retailers, but we will update as more information comes in.

There are plenty of cases for the LG Ultimate 2, because it is very similar to so other popular phones including the LG Exceed 2.

Tracfone MOTO E (XT830C) - Now Available!

Tracfone Moto E Android Smartphone is Available!

This post provides details and specs for the Moto E XT830C which is has recently become available for use with Tracfone We will continue to update as more information arrives.

Moto e specs
Moto E for Tracfone Now Available
Tracfone continues to (slowly) release new Android powered smartphones to add to their offering of prepaid mobile devices and the Moto E from Motorola is the latest announcement. Tracfone is a low cost prepaid cell phone service provider with a variety of both regular phones and smartphones.

The Motorola XT830C, which is more commonly referred to as simply the Moto E, is a powerful little smartphone running Android 4.4 and giving users a 4.3" touchscreen.

UPDATE: The Moto E is now available from several sources, including eBay, and Target stores. See below for links to the phone.

The Moto E comes from a small family of three phones produced by Motorola and is the lowest cost. The higher end Moto X, and extremely popular mid-level Moto G fill out this selection of highly rated phones. While there are some reports of the Moto G working with Tracfone BYOP, it is anything but easy or certain, so the Moto E may be the next best thing for many Tracfone customers.

The Samsung Galaxy Ace Style (not yet released) and the LG Optimus Fuel (available) are the two previous new phones to come to Tracfone. Each have upgrades that other Tracfone Androids don't have, but they still don't have everything consumers are looking for. Perhaps with the Moto E, and two other smartphones new to Tracfone, users will find a mobile device that fits their needs.

Along with the newly released Moto E, there are two more exciting phones currently available. The LG L41C Ultimate 2 and Alcatel A564C which each sport screens larger than 4.5" inches (more information on these phones available at the links above!). Many Tracfone users have been hoping for Android devices with screens larger than 4", so these phones are very exciting to hear about.

Let's take a closer look at what the Moto E offers, including some of the important specifications.

Tracfone Moto E Specifications and What to Expect

The Moto E is better than some of Tracfones other smartphones like the LG Optimus Dynamic II and LG Optimus Fuel in several areas. (But each phone has certain strengths and weaknesses). The two biggest features for the Moto E that set it apart are the 4.3" screen, and 1GB of RAM.

Below is the full list of features and specs for the Moto E:
moto e Motorola XT830C
Tracfone Moto E
  • Android 4.4
  • 3G on Verizon CDMA Networks
  • WiFi
  • 5MP Rear Camera 
  • Micro USB 2.0 port
  • 3.5mm Headphones
  • 4GB Micro SD Card
  • Bluetooth
  • GPS
  • FM Radio
  • Handsfree Speaker, MMS, Alarm clock
  • MP3 Player, Proximity Sensor
  • Call Waiting, Caller ID, Voice Dialing
  • Triple Minutes for Life
Moto E Specs and Features:
  • Size: 4.91" x 2.55" x 0.48"
  • 4.3" qHD Touchscreen at 256ppi (540x960) and Gorilla Glass 3
  • 1.2 Ghz Dual-core processor
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 4 GB Internal Memory, up to 32 GB External MicroSD slot
  • Weight: 5 ounces
  • 1980 mAh battery with 16.5 hrs talk time/30 days standby

Some of you might be very excited for the opportunity to have a Tracfone Smartphone with a dual-core processor and 1 GB of RAM. The Moto E is expected to be a great overall smartphone with its solid features and specs. And because it was made in partnership with Google, it will likely continue to be updated with the latest Android OS.

We could go on about the 4.3" screen, 1.2 Ghz processor, and all the other specs, but you probably get the idea that the Moto E comes with many features that beat Tracfone's other smartphones. However, the lack of a front facing camera (which the Alcatel Onetouch and LG Ultimate 2 both have, is a bit disappointing).

But let's move on and look at where the newly released Moto E might even be available.

A quick note, as one visitor mentioned in the comments, the Moto E doesn't have a front facing camera, nor flash, and the battery cannot be removed. These are some cons for the phone worth being aware of.

What to Expect and Where is the Tracfone Moto E Available?

The Moto E will be for use on Verizon CDMA towers and you can probably expect the same kind of service as many of Tracfone's other current smartphones.

All of Tracfone's Android smartphones come with Triple Minutes for Life, and minutes are separated into talk, text and data. For a full explanation about this, view our Guide to How Minutes Work with Tracfone Android Phones.

Now, the big question most of you are asking is, where can you find the Moto E?

The Moto E is popping up in several places online, starting at $99:

Tracfone Moto E on Amazon - $99

Tracfone Moto E on eBay - $99

Tracfone Moto E with 600 Minutes on eBay - $129

Tracfone Moto E with 1200 Minutes on eBay - $149

You can also find the Moto E on the ShopCellDeals website.

Some people have also found the Moto E in Target stores.

The retail price for an unlocked Moto E is about $120 and the Tracfone Moto E for is available for a little less, but may still eventually be listed on the Tracfone website for $120.

We will keep you updated with the latest information on the Moto E. As soon as we find it available we will update this page. Stay even more up to date by following us on Facebook where we share lots of information on the latest Tracfone devices, as well as Tracfone Promo Codes!
