Alcatel OneTouch Idol X+ review

 

Alcatel OneTouch is an emerging brand in the mobile industry and we've taken a look at one of its higher spec smartphones. Here's our Alcatel OneTouch Idol X+ review. Updated on 26/5/15 with our video review. Also see: Best smartphones 2014 and Best...

The Alcatel OneTouch Idol X+ is one of the best dual-SIM phones we've reviewed and a good choice for the price. It has a nice design and good features like a Full HD display and 13 Mp camera but bear in mind that the Moto G 2014 and ZTE Blade S6 are...

Alcatel OneTouch Idol X+ Review: In Depth

 

The Alcatel OneTouch Idol X+ has been out for some time now, but it's still got a lot to offer and at an even more reasonable price tag than when it first launched.Design: Between two worldsWhilst it's…

Clean design ; Attractive screen ; Great value for money

Inconsistant performance ; Poor video ; No microSD slot

As a refresh over the classic X, the Alcatel OneTouch Idol X+ makes some interesting choices. We enjoyed the design, the screen tech, the majority of the UI and the sub £250 price point makes a lot of sense too.

Alcatel Onetouch Idol X+ Review

 

Alcatel wants to give you premium design and features, but for low-end smartphone prices. Does the Idol X+ deliver?

The Alcatel Idol X+ wants to be a premium phone but at a price that everyone can afford. And while some aspects hit the mark - the screen is okay, performance not bad and the battery life acceptable - elsewhere it fails to convince, with cheap-feeling...

Review: Alcatel OneTouch Idol X+

 

Alcatel has been ramping up its product offerings as well as its range of devices. It showed off a number of notable smartphones, tablets and even a smart watch at CES 2015. While those products haven't been slated for Canadian release, their OneTouch...

Featuring a very clear full-HD display, great sound and call quality plus an outstanding battery life, the Alcatel OneTouch Idol X+ is priced reasonably at $350 outright or free on two-year TELUS plans.

Alcatel Idol X+ review: 8-ball game

 

Alcatel has been slowly, but steadily making a name for itself for selling affordable, well-made phones throughout the entire price range. This year's Idol X+ is their flagship and it's an affordable yet robust product. With an octa-core processor of...

Dual-SIM support ; Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support; Dual-band 3G with HSPA for both SIM cards ; 5" 16M-color 1080p IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen ; Android OS v4.2.1 Jelly Bean ; Octa-core 2.0 GHz Cortex-A7 CPU, 2 GB RAM, Mali-450MP4 GPU, MediaTek...

Non-replaceable battery ; No microSD card slot ; No LTE ; Android version not quite up-to-date ; Below average loudspeaker performance ; Back cover doesn't feel premium and gets easily smudged and scratched

The Alcatel Idol X+ has its downsides. Take the lack of a microSD slot and the non-removable battery, as well as the now ageing Android version and the low loudspeaker volume. The fact of the matter is the Alcatel's Idol X+ is an extremely compelling...

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 OneTouch Idol X+ review

 

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....
