Alcatel One Touch Idol X+ Smartphone Review


Pocket Idol. The One Touch Idol X+ is Alcatel's newest flagship model. Those looking for LTE, a super-fast CPU and expandable storage will be disappointed. Still, we are quite fond of this 5-inch device. Read on to find out why.

Lightweight chassis., Two SIM ports., Reliable, quick GPS module., Great Wi-Fi reception quality., Fine speech quality., Decent camera., Bright IPS panel., Low heat emissions., Decent battery life., Alcatel has managed to rid the Idol X of some of its...

Prone to smudges on the screen., Sometimes sub-par build quality., SIM cards not easy to insert., Slow 3G module., No LTE., Bluish tint., High power consumption., The chassis is actually a lot worse than that of the Idol X

Alcatel One Touch Idol X Review


Alcatel is back to cooking Android phones with a vengeance, and its One Touch Idol X is shaped to be one of the most affordable and well-equipped Full HD 5-inchers, not to mention the dual SIM option it offers. From this season's flagship specs list...

Very light, compact and affordable 5-incher ; Excellent Full HD display ; Hot-swap dual SIM support ; Good call quality

Weak processor for graphically intensive tasks

Alcatel has managed to produce an excellent handset with the One Touch Idol X – it is the thinnest, lightest and one of the cheapest 5” handsets with Full HD displays, which are all the rage these days.

Alcatel One Touch Idol X+


As an updated version of the One Touch Idol X, reviews indicate that Alcatel once again proves that you don't have to be a mainstream flagship phone to offer great performance. While it might not keep up with the latest devices, it certainly seems to...

Alcatel One Touch Idol X review


A mid-price, high spec smartphone

Super slim design ; Decent camera ; Good HD display ; Snappy processor

No expandable storage ; No 4G or NFC ; No update from Android 4.2 ; Lack of app draw

Ratings in depth On paper the Alcatel One Touch Idol X looks amazing value for money, but in reality can it hold its ground when compared to its rivals? Will it party with the stars or is it more likely to fall into the pile of devices which fail to...

Alcatel One Touch Idol X


Hands-on: A great value 5-inch, Full HD smartphone from an unlikely source.

It's safe to say that we were impressed with the One Touch Idol X prototype we got our hands on and with a potential price of under £250 (TBC) it looks to be an absolute bargain. The four colour options and sleekness of design will appeal to the style...

Обзор смартфона Alcatel OneTouch Idol X+


Обновление для модели Idol X – восьмиядерный процессор MTK, та же 13-мегапиксельная камера и HD-экран. Любопытное решение для флагмана

С точки зрения качества связи никаких нареканий к аппарату нет, громкость звонка отличная, его слышно даже из сумки. Виброзвонок за счет толщины корпуса ощущается необычно, его часто не замечаешь. Никаких нареканий к качеству передачи речи нет.

Review: Alcatel OneTouch Idol X


I have been surprised and impressed by the Alcatel OneTouch Idol X. This smartphone is one of the lighter devices in its class but it offers a great feature set for the price and is a superb first salvo from Alcatel.
