Reviews for the Alcatel One Touch Idol X+

84% Alcatel One Touch Idol X+ Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
Pocket Idol. The One Touch Idol X+ is Alcatel's newest flagship model. Those looking for LTE, a super-fast CPU and expandable storage will be disappointed. Still, we are quite fond of this 5-inch device. Read on to find out why.
80% Alcatel OneTouch Idol X+ review: Affordable dual-SIM phone with Full HD display and 13 Mp camera
Source: PC Advisor English
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 both cheaper and dual-SIM. However, in the wider smartphone market there is tough competition and its lack of a microSD card slot and other hardware such as 4G LTE support mean it's outpaced by the Honor 6.

On the other side of the coin there are smarter options out there with better camera experiences, slicker user interfaces and more current internal hardware. We’d recommend the Idol X+, provided the buyer was after something with its specific strengths and could overlook its weaknesses.

60% Alcatel Onetouch Idol X+ Review
Source: PC Pro English
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 design and software, a sub-par camera and no microSD expansion. While the price is tempting, if you’re after a good-quality budget Android smartphone, we’d advise you save your cash and opt for a Moto G2 instead.

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.
