Android version and market relevance

In February 2014 was announced smartphone Alcatel Idol 2 S. It is located in the series Idol among many others smartphones Alcatel.

The most important thing you need to know before buying is the version of Android on which the smartphone is launched “out of the box”. And Alcatel Idol 2 S works on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, that by the way is not so bad as for smartphone of 2014. But here it is still important to know whether this model is updated to a more recent version. Our novelty Alcatel Idol 2 S updated to version 4.4 KitKat.

Perhaps it will be important for you that the smartphone was a dualsim. Unfortunately Alcatel Idol 2 S does not support working with two SIM cards, we advise you to look at android smartphones with two SIM cards.

Screen, body and battery

It is worth paying attention to good 5 inch capacitive IPS LCD touchscreen smartphone Alcatel Idol 2 S. This is a large screen, and you need to consider the size of your palm, so it was convenient to hold the smartphone in your hand and use it. The thickness of the case is 7.5 mm. This also accommodated a battery capacity of 2 150 mAh.

Main camera and selfie camera

Alcatel Idol 2 S is not a camera phone, because it has a main camera on 8 MP. If you want to make a lot of high-quality photos and video on your smartphone, we advise you to look in the catalog on camera phones, whose cameras are more than 20 MP. In addition to the main camera, which is very important, it is also worth paying attention to the quality of the pictures from the front camera. And here at this model the front-seat camera got its 1.3 MP, which is very little. If you really want to make quality smartphones on the smartphone, we advise you to look in the catalog selfie smartphones, in which the frontcamera of 13 Mp.

Processor and Internal Memory

Brilliant multi-core processor installed in Alcatel Idol 2 S. 1 GB of RAM will help make the interface work smoother. There is also built-in memory in the smartphone, which stores photos, videos, music and all your other data. The amount of this built-in memory is 8 GB. Memory cards you can also use, in this model are supported microSD-cards up to 32 GB.

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

$280 is the price for Alcatel Idol 2 S at the start of sales. For this money you get a smartphone with a good processor, a large touch screen, with an ordinary camera for photos and video, and with a conventional front camera. And with such characteristics, the smartphone got into the price segment “Below average smartphones from $200 to $300”, where you can choose any other similar model for a same price.

And how important is the battery capacity in your smartphone? In this model, the battery is very weak. We advise you to look at real long-livers — smartphones with a powerful battery.

Alcatel Idol 2 S will be available after the beginning of official sales. We always recommend that you look at the smartphone before you buy it to make sure that it fits you in all respects — screen size, case materials and build quality, speed and smoothness of the interface, photo and video quality, etc. After you choose a model, then you already look at the different offers from the sellers — you can buy it on the Internet or in the offline electronics supermarket. Buy where you prefer, where there are stocks and discounts, and where the seller guarantees the service of the device under warranty.

We picked up these models at a similar price.
