Alcatel One Touch Idol review: Unlocked Android tanked by absent 4G

 

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

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

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 6030A Review

 

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

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.

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...

We really liked the package of the One Touch Idol. This time, Alcatel surpassed our impressions especially in the display and design department. Though performance-wise it's not really going to wow anyone, it's enough for an average smartphone junkie....

A great-value 4G smartphone with fantastic battery life

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...

Only the sedate performance level lets it down, yet for the target market the benefits by far outweigh the negatives.

Смартфоны Alcatel One Touch Idol и Idol Ultra мне понравились: тонкие корпуса, хорошие экраны, отличное качество сборки и небольшой вес. Но у них есть один существенный минус – это чипсет. Как мне кажется, к концу первого квартала 2013 года выпускать...
