Android version and market relevance

The long-awaited announcement of a new smartphone from the manufacturer Alcatel, which took place in August 2013 (in our catalog you can see all smarphones of 2013). This is a new model Alcatel Idol S — smartphone works on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, which does not receive software updates and will forever remain on the old version of Android. If this does not suit you, then be sure to check the selected ones DROID-smartphones in our catalog. These are models that work on the latest version of the Android OS or are updated on it.

Alcatel Idol S does not support two SIM cards, but if it′s important and necessary for you, we advise you to look in the directory smartphones with 2 sim cards. On this page, you can definitely pick up a good current model, which will suit you perfectly.

Screen, body and battery

It is worth paying attention to good 4.7 inch capacitive IPS LCD touchscreen smartphone Alcatel Idol S. The screen size is very ergonomic and this smartphone will fit comfortably in your hand. Reaching with the finger of the hand that holds the smartphone, to any angle of the screen should be easy. The thickness of the case is 7.4 mm. This also accommodated a battery capacity of 2 000 mAh.

Main camera and selfie camera

Alcatel Idol 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

A smartphone without a processor will not work. And the better the processor, the faster the smartphone works. Alcatel Idol S received 2-core processor Mediatek MT6577. The amount of RAM in it is 1 GB.

But, more importantly, it′s the amount of built-in memory for storing your information (photo, video, music, etc.). Here you will receive 4 GB. You can still do this — buy a smartphone with a minimum amount of memory to save a bit, and buy a memory card microSD up to 32 GB, because in this model there is a slot for memory cards.

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

In December 2013 begin sales of a new smartphone Alcatel Idol S. The manufacturer said the price of $160 without taxes and fees. And what we get for this money, let′s summarize all the main characteristics. The smartphone has a normal-sized touch screen, a normal main camera, a weak front camera, a regular battery and a cherry on the cake is not a very powerful processor.

As a result, in 2013 this was a good smartphone in terms of price-performance ratio, and now we advise you to see other smartphones from the same price segment “Affordable smartphones from $100 to $200” or go to DROID smartphones page, where we always keep the current (Android OS) models of smartphones on sale. And before buying, we always advise you to go to an offline electronics store to hold the smartphone in your hands and be sure that you like it. Why do we advise so? Because creating this catalog of smartphones and filling it with photos of models, we are very well aware of the differences between beautiful selling photos from real smartphones, which then the buyers hold in their hands.

We picked up these models at a similar price.
