Alcatel is moving into Canada and has secured a relationship with Bell and a number of other carriers. This gives an alternative to the majority of new phones being sold here, such as Apple, Samsung, and Sony. The Alcatel One Touch Idol X is a premier phone, that borrows classical elementals from many of their competitors, giving you a solid phone, at a good price.
The Alcatel One Touch Idol X features a five inch display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. Underneath the hood is a 1.5GHz quad-core processor with 2BG RAM and 16GB of internal storage. It has a 13.1 MP rear facing camera and a 2 MP front facing one. The speakers are actually very solid, even though its on the rear of the phone. Rarely do speakers actually sound good, when a phone is laying on its back, but this does well.
This phone is much slimmer than the competition and is lighter. It is a joy to hold in your hand or to play games. The resolution is super crisp, whether you are watching movies or using apps. Alcatel has struck a winning blow with the Idol X. It may have its faults, but between the gorgeous screen, satisfactory camera and effective multimedia functions, it has enough on its side to please buyers who want something close to a high-end phone without the high price tag.
