Reviews for the Alcatel One Touch Idol Mini

Alcatel OneTouch Idol Mini review
Source: Pocket Lint English
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. In that respect the Idol Mini ticks a box and for £80 it's hard to complain. But the sheer strength of the Moto E and the EE Kestrel's 4G connectivity see the Idol Mini fall a step behind where it could be, with all eyes falling on its follow-up due in the coming months.

The Alcatel One Touch Idol Mini might fit easily in the hand but it is big on style and features. There a four colors to choose from; cranberry pink, metallic red, slate and silver. Made to look premium and classy, the metallic brushed finish and color combinations will certainly individualize the device to its owner. There are 2 variants of the Alcatel One Touch Idol Mini; a single SIM and a dual SIM version.

The display on the smartphone is a 4.3 inches FWVGA IPS panel that delivers good quality images. The Android 4.2 Jelly Bean device comes with a dual core 1.3 GHz processor, 512 MB RAM and either 8 GB or 4 GB internal storage depending on the version. The limited internal storage can be expanded up to 32 GB using a MicroSD card. The image capture capability is rather good with its rear 5 MP auto focus camera and the device also includes a front facing VGA camera.

Other features include A-GPS for navigation, Bluetooth 4.0, E-compass and G-sensor. The Alcatel One Touch Idol Mini also comes packed with games such as Asphalt7, Wonder Zoo, Little Big City and much more. Battery live is impressive with up to 20 hours talk time using a 1700 mAh lithium cell.

The former French manufacturer of telecommunication equipment merged to Alcatel-Lucent in 2006. Several business segments were sold to other companies, so the Alcatel brand is now used by various companies. The Chinese company TCL uses the brand names "Alcatel One Touch" and "Alcatel Idol" for smartphones and tablets.

The market share in the smartphone + tablet segment is very small, but there are quite some recent reviews in different languages. The ratings are average (as of 2016).
