Main camera and selfie camera

Smartphone Alcatel Idol 2 Mini got ordinary main camera on 8 MP and the frontcamera on 0.3 MP. If you judge only by the number of megapixels, then the main camera is very weak. But the frontcamera not very good, we have in our catalog real selfie smartphones.

Price for Alcatel Idol 2 Mini: buy or not to buy?

The smartphone Alcatel Idol 2 Mini got into our price segment “Affordable smartphones from $100 to $200” and began to be sold in Q2 2014 at a price of $160. Evaluation of the characteristics, probably, you have already folded, and if not, here is our result. Alcatel Idol 2 Mini is a fast smartphone with a convenient screen size and a conventional main camera, and the front camera did not turn out super cool. And to all this we add that the battery, unfortunately, is weak here.

Is it worth buying now this model of the smartphone, we are talking about our status “Droid-or-Junk”. Of course, at the beginning of sales, almost every smartphone becomes a Droid, and we advise buying such models. But over time, the situation is changing, no one updates the Android version in the smartphone, and in six months or a year this smartphone can already become a Junk. In this case, we advise you to go to the DROID smartphones page in our catalog, where we always show the most current models on sale for today. There are variants from different price segments, so you will have plenty to choose from.

We picked up these models at a similar price.
