Alcatel One Touch Idol Ultra review

 

It's the world's slimmest smartphone

Super slim ; Nice design ; Pretty quick

Overlay isn't great ; Poor camera ; No microSD slot ; No headphone jack

The Alcatel One Touch Idol Ultra is a capable mid to high end device offering you a decent smartphone experience.

Alcatel One Touch Idol Ultra Review

 

Once a highly popular brand back in the 90s, Alcatel steadily vanished from the mobile scene just as Samsung and Sony Ericsson began rising up the ranks. Today, anyone and everyone has a smartphone portfolio and every other day, we come across new...

The handset is powered by a MediaTek MT6577+ SoC which runs at 1.2GHz. Along with 1GB of RAM, Jelly Bean is a pleasant experience on the Ultra. You don’t get any expandable memory, but there’s 16GB of internal memory, out of which 13.3GB is user...

Alcatel One Touch Idol Ultra Review - Tech2

 

Does the One Touch Idol Ultra have more to offer than sharing screen time with Tony Stark? Let's find out

The handset retails online for Rs 19,000, which is too expensive given the Galaxy Grand is available at a similar price and is a much better handset overall. Even if Alcatel drops the price, we recommend you give it a miss.

Alcatel One Touch Idol Ultra Review

 

Planted in the affordable midrange segment, the slimmest member of Alcatel's One Touch line is just 0.25" (6.45mm) thick. It still sports a respectable 4.7" HD Super AMOLED display and 8 MP camera, but the rest of the specs are an underwhelming...

Very slim and light chassis

Slow ; Battery life is below average

The midrange battle is a heated one, and Alcatel One Touch Idol Ultra is well-positioned in terms of price and specs, with its $300 tag for an elegant chassis, HD AMOLED display and 8 MP camera.
