Alcatel One Touch Idol Ultra Review


Once a highly popular brand back in the 90s, Alcatel steadily vanished from the mobile scene just as Samsung and Sony Ericsson began rising up the ranks. Today, anyone and everyone has a smartphone portfolio and every other day, we come across new...

The handset is powered by a MediaTek MT6577+ SoC which runs at 1.2GHz. Along with 1GB of RAM, Jelly Bean is a pleasant experience on the Ultra. You don’t get any expandable memory, but there’s 16GB of internal memory, out of which 13.3GB is user...

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 Ultra Review


Planted in the affordable midrange segment, the slimmest member of Alcatel's One Touch line is just 0.25" (6.45mm) thick. It still sports a respectable 4.7" HD Super AMOLED display and 8 MP camera, but the rest of the specs are an underwhelming...

Very slim and light chassis

Slow ; Battery life is below average

The midrange battle is a heated one, and Alcatel One Touch Idol Ultra is well-positioned in terms of price and specs, with its $300 tag for an elegant chassis, HD AMOLED display and 8 MP camera.

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

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...

Alcatel One Touch Idol S


Alcatel was once a major force in the UK mobile phone market, but it has since been relegated to a bit-part player. If its Onetouch Idol S Android phone is anything to go by, however, it's ready to stage a comeback. In fact, it's the only handset we've...

A highly attractive smartphone with a great screen, decent performance and 4G support – all at a ridiculously low price
