Spec comparison: Vodafone Smart Ultra 7 vs Honor 5c vs Alcatel POP 4

The sub-£150 smartphone market is more competitive and spec-rich than ever before. Not too long ago, we found ourselves swooning over the Honor 5c for its array of features and specifications, making us wonder why its similar-performance competitors cost at least a £100 more.

Earlier today, Vodafone launched the Smart Ultra 7 which, like the Smart Ultra 6, has surprised the mid-range phone market yet again. Costing £10 lesser than Honor 5c, it makes us believe that by paying less than £150, we can enjoy a large display, multi-task, revel in the latest Android experience and do everything that we like doing with premium phones.

We compare three new smartphones that cost less than £150 and come with the best spec-charts for their price range- the Vodafone Smart Ultra 7, the Honor 5c and the Alcatel POP 4.

Despite being larger, the just-launched Smart Ultra 7 is lighter than both the Honor 5c and the POP 4. However, both the Smart Ultra 7 and Honor 5c ae quite comparable when it comes to battery capacity, camera resolutions, storage, RAM, display resolution and other features. Even the POP 4 lags behind in terms of storage, RAM, cameras and display resolution, it still justifies its £89.99 price tag.
