Alcatel OneTouch Idol X+ Review

 

The Idol X+ upgrades on the weakest spot of the Idol X, boasting the “true octa-core” MediaTek processor, instead of the wimpy quad-core that we had last year, but the other main specs, like the 5” 1080p panel, remained unchanged. Alcatel did add...

Very good 1080p display ; Excellent noise-canceling mics ; Hot-swap dual SIM support ; Quality audio output and JBL headset in the box

Older Android version with sketchy chances for update ; Video framerate falls significantly in low-light conditions ; Weak LED flash ; Uncomfortably placed power/lock key

When the OneTouch Idol X came last year, it was the thinnest, lightest, and cheapest 5” handset with a good 1080p display. Its Idol X+ successor, however, will have a steeper climb ahead of it. Granted, the phone has remained relatively compact, and...

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.

With the competition in this price segment getting stiffer, how does latest Alcatel offering fare? We find out in this Alcatel One Touch Idol X+ review!

So there you have it – the Alcatel OneTouch Idol X+. It’s available now for below $400 off contract but it’s a rather steep price to pay for a phone with no LTE, lack of 3G support with carriers in the US, and the low probability of software updates....

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

Alcatel has managed to design and produce a solid, feature rich device for not a lot of money, and for the price it's hard to complain about the niggling problems we faced.

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...
