Alcatel OneTouch Idol Mini review - Pocket-lint

 

-

Bright screen with decent viewing angles, microSD slot for expansion, slim build that doesn’t look budget, familiar Android operation

User interface can sometimes lag, plasticky materials (a given for the price), no 4G , poor camera, Moto E/EE Kestrel prove stiff competition

The Alcatel OneTouch Idol Mini does a good job of disguising its budget asking price by delivering a slim, good-looking smartphone package. It's the look that's among the phone's strongest traits.

Respectable screen colour/contrast ; Very affordable ; Simple interface

Quite laggy ; Scratch-prone screen ; Poor camera
