Android version and market relevance

Announcement! We need more new products from Alcatel. This time these guys announced Alcatel Idol X. This is a smartphone on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean in 2013.

More detailed characteristics of this smartphone you can see below on the page, and in short we will describe the most important of them. So, firstly, there are no updates for this model the manufacturer does not release, so feel free to search for other smartphones in 2013 and choose from them. And, secondly, Alcatel Idol X has a slot for two SIM cards and supports their mutual work (all smartphones with 2 sim cards). Next about the screen, the camera and the processor with memory.

Screen, body and battery

IPS LCD touchscreen with a diagonal 5″ mounted on the front panel Alcatel Idol X, thickness 6.9 mm.

The battery in Alcatel Idol X is installed on 2 000 mAh. It can be said that by today′s standards, such a volume is inadequate, and you will miss one charge per day of active work.

Main camera and selfie camera

A few words about the cameras that have Alcatel Idol X. The main camera, located on the back, received 13.1 MP. The main camera we would rate her 4 out of 5.

The frontcamera is also in Alcatel Idol X. It is located in front of the screen and has its own 2.1 MP, which for qualitative selfies it will be not enough, therefore we advise to look others selfie smartphones in our catalog.

Processor and Internal Memory

The smartphone performance is affected by a lot of factors, and even more so on the android-smartphone, where the developer of the Android operating system and the device manufacturer are absolutely different companies and each develops with its strategy in the market. As a result, in the smartphone you get a hodgepodge: it′s like a “clean” Android, but with a shell from the manufacturer; as though only the necessary applications, but also many unnecessary from the manufacturer. Very often Android-installed apps by default, which you do not even use, are still running and working, they occupy part of the RAM and processor time of your smartphone. This slows the work of other applications and the battery charge is wasted.

So, in Alcatel Idol X is installed 4-core processor on the chipset Mediatek MT6589. As for RAM, the memory module is used here 2 GB.

You can store your photos, videos, music and applications both on the built-in smartphone memory, and on memory cards microSD up to 32 GB. The manufacturer releases several versions of this smartphone with different memory sizes: 8/16 GB. Before buying, be sure to decide how many gigabytes you need.

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

So we told about not very expensive average power smartphone Alcatel Idol X with a large screen, very good main camera and weak frontal, and still there is a weak battery.

All these characteristics in 2013 may be good, but the time goes by and the smartphone will somehow become obsolete in half a year of the beginning of sales. And by the way, to sell it start in July 2013 at a price of $370. This is the official price from the manufacturer without taxes and fees, so it can differ in each country, and not only for different sellers.

Before you buy Alcatel Idol X, be sure to check out all the photos and video reviews on it, or better still go to the offline store (electronics supermarket) and twist it in your hand. And already then, based on the emotions received from the smartphone, make the decision to buy.

And if Alcatel Idol X is not already sold, when you are reading this text, then do not be upset. We advise you to always visit the page DROID smartphones, where we collect only the most current models on new versions of Android OS.

We picked up these models at a similar price.
