I was invited to review both the Idol 2 S and the Pop 7 tablet; I couldn’t have been more thrilled!  My daughter would get to try the smartphone, while I would try the tablet.

The Idol 2 S is a slim, stylish, and sexy phone, with a 5″ HD display!  This slim smartphone is only 7.4 mm thin, and has crisp and clear HD sound.  Surprisingly, it does have 4G LTE speed  Although it has an 8 Mpxl camera: in my opinion, the camera could be more sharp.  It’s fine for quick, fun selfies, and it does the job (as far as taking pictures); however, I do prefer a higher quality when it comes to my pictures; but, with an HD front camera, one finger zoom, and Wi-Fi display you are set to show off … it’s really all you need!  It takes 3 hours to charge and that will give you about 7 hours of talktime, and 400 hours of standby.  Find all the specs here.  This sexy little phone really made me fall in love with it.  I would highly recommend giving this baby a try Its simple design is both affordable, dependable, and has great quality.

The ALCATEL ONETOUCH Pop 7 tablet is a thin, light, 3G entry level tablet (8.9mm thin, and weighs 285 gr).  The 3G connectivity is fast (it surprised me!) and the WiFi mode allows you to connect easily on-the-go!  Personally, I think it’s the perfect tablet to take with you on your travels.  The camera isn’t the most crisp (2.0 Mpxl rear & 0.3 Mpxl front); however, other features make up for that … like 7″ display, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system (upgradeable), upto 8 hour browsing time, 1 GB RAM memory, and dual core 1.3 GHz.  What more could you want for an entry level tablet?  ALCATEL ONETOUCH does have other options; this innovative company has a variety of tablets, phones, and accessories to choose from.
