Alcatel OneTouch Idol 2 Mini S

 

Alcatel's Moto G rival runs out of gas too early

Cute design ; Has a camera flash

Dreadful battery life ; Not great value SIM-free ; Low screen resolution for the price

Another little hardware choice to mention is that the Mini S has light-up soft keys below the touchscreen, where many budget phones now tend to use software keys built into the touchscreen to reduce costs.

Review: Alcatel OneTouch – Idol 2 Mini S

 

What is it? The Idol 2 Mini S is an offering from Alcatel OneTouch in the entry to medium budget phones, which features a slick design, feels good in[...]

For £120, you get a reasonable all around performance for a mid to budget sized phone. Good software features are let down a tiny bit by the screen, but if you want a phone that looks and feels good without breaking the bank, this is the one to go for.
