Alcatel One Touch Idol


Alcatel may not be a phone maker that rings a bell with you, but it's a fairly prolific enterprise that's inching its way into the U.S. market with phones like Cricket's Alcatel Authority and the better Alcatel One Touch Idol , an entry-level Android...

Alcatel's unlocked One Touch Idol has a large display, a slim profile, an 8-megapixel camera with HD video capture, and strong call quality.

The Idol won't deliver faster than 3G service. The entry-level device lacks NFC and has little internal storage.

With low-end specs and no 4G speeds, Alcatel's One Touch Idol can't compete with the LG Nexus 4.

Alcatel One Touch Idol (Unlocked)


The unlocked Alcatel One Touch Idol smartphone is light and attractive, but that's not enough to make up for dated hardware and lackluster performance.

Light and thin. Attractive design. Good price

Slow network speeds. Poor camera. Middling performance. Short battery life. Voice dialing doesn't work

You might have seen the Alcatel One Touch Idol in Iron Man 3. I haven't seen it yet, but with its sleek, thin design, I can see how the Idol looks like a natural pairing for Tony Stark's rich-boy bravado. But I can't imagine that Iron Man himself would...

Alcatel One Touch Idol


The One Touch Idol from Alcatel is a lightweight and capable contract-free Android phone, but its short battery life and lack of LTE disappoint.

Lightweight design and available in multiple colors; IPS display offers wide viewing angles; Relatively clean version of Android; Excellent audio quality

Lacks 4G LTE support; Short battery life; Display not HD

Click to EnlargeThe Alcatel One Touch Idol delivers a lightweight design and good audio quality for an unsubsidized phone at this price. We also appreciate the multiple fun color options. And while the 1-GHz dual-core MT6577 processor isn't the most...

Alcatel One Touch Idol Review


Annouced in early 2013, the Alcatel One Touch Idol is a mid-range Android smartphone aiming to meet the demand for affordable, large-screened smartphones. It stands out with its 4.7-inch IPS LCD panel, but that isn't all that potential buyers may be...

Dual SIM smartphone ; Thin and lightweight ; Good call quality ; Multiple color variants, including pink

Mediocre camera ; Weak processor ; No microSD card slot for the dual-SIM model

Even though the Alcatel One Touch Idol made a cameo in the Iron Man 3 movie, it isn't really a smartphone fit for a superhero. Rather, it is a mid-range phone suitable for those who need a reasonably-priced dual-SIM handset. The Idol stands out with...

Hands on: Alcatel One Touch Idol review


The world's lightest smartphone… apparently

Feels cheap ; Slow at times ; Little storage

Expert review by:

Alcatel One Touch Idol


How much phone can you get for £200?

Impressive screen ; Great value ; Looks belie price

Average battery life ; Only 4GB onboard storage ; Flimsy SIM/microSD flaps

The One Touch Idol comes with 4GB of internal storage, enough to keep your most important apps on. This can be expanded to a much healthier 36GB with a 32GB microSD card, enough for most people to store all the music, apps and even video they want to...

Consumer review by:

"Great Android phone & quality of craftsmanship."


If you're looking for a great Android phone without the price tag and unnecessary apps (read bloatware) this is it!

16GB micro SD storage, huge screen, very thin and light. Great 8MP camera. No bloatware! Pure 4.1 Android with in which Alcatel changed only the look of the icons.
