Alcatel OneTouch Idol X+ smartphone review

In the summer of 2013, Alcatel made a small breakthrough - they created a model that, in terms of price / quality ratio, became almost ideal, but at the same time offered the maximum performance among all second-tier companies. The Idol X combined a thin body and a high-quality screen, a 13-megapixel camera, and a fairly capacious battery. The device came out at a price of about 14,000 rubles, which became the most affordable offer in its class. There was a surprising situation, companies with high sales volume, such as Fly, were forced to adjust prices down and take Idol X into account.

For half a year, the cost of Idol X dropped to 12,000 rubles, which made it even more attractive. But the company decided that it was time to update the flagship, and carried out a number of cosmetic works - the new phone received an eight-core processor, a number of software changes and a price similar to its predecessor at the start. In my opinion, this device will suit those who are looking for productive solutions and understand why they are needed, and most importantly, how they plan to use this power. But there is not much difference from just Idol X, the average consumer should look at the old model - it is cheaper, more profitable and works in almost the same way. The company, realizing this, added quite a lot of additional features to the software. But you can notice this only by deeply studying the device and delving into its settings. At the moment, this device is the flagship of Alcatel.

Design, dimensions, controls

It has already become a tradition for Alcatel to release several versions of the phone - for example, there is a single-symbol device, it has a memory card. A model with 32 GB of internal memory and two SIM cards will be delivered to Russia, there is no slot for memory cards. There is also a 16 GB version for this device, but they refused to launch it in Russia. It was she who was on the review, but this device has no fundamental difference with what will be supplied. The difference in memory capacity does not affect the performance of the device in any way.

Alcatel OneTouch Idol X+

The first thing that catches your eye is the rejection of the use of matte and multi-colored plastic, as in Idol X. Here we see the usual, glossy plastic, which is unimaginably strongly reminiscent of the Samsung Galaxy S4. Of course, it was necessary to make the design a little different, but it was definitely not worth giving up the successful find of the previous device, which consisted of good, wear-resistant plastic. This is what the device and its back looked like.

The phone measures 140.4x69.1x7.9 mm and weighs 130 grams. Slim body fits well in the hand. The case is monolithic, as a result, it is impossible to change the battery. On the left side there is a slot for SIM-card number one, it has a microSIM form factor, as well as the second one. I like the way the connector cover flips out, it's hinged and made of alloy. The design gives the impression of being reliable and durable, but most importantly, it is comfortable in everyday life.

There is a volume rocker on the right side. The bottom end is occupied by a microUSB connector, but at the top we see a 3.5 headset jack, as well as an on / off button.

On the front surface above the screen is a light sensor, right there is a proximity indicator. There are no mechanical buttons, as in previous devices, these are three touch keys. For those who have used Samsung devices in recent years, it will be unusual that the back key is moved to the left, that is, the location is mirrored.

There is a 13.1-megapixel camera lens on the back surface, along with an LED flash that can be used as a flashlight. You can also see the speaker hole at the bottom.

Display

The phone has a 5-inch IPS-matrix with a FullHD resolution of 1080x1920 pixels, which is not yet typical for most second-tier manufacturers. The screen is covered with DragonTrail glass, it also has an oleophobic coating, the prints are not so noticeable.

Alcatel OneTouch Idol X+

The viewing angles are maximum, the brightness is excessive, which forces it to be twisted by half, otherwise there is an overexposure of white color. There is a light sensor that can adjust the backlight automatically. In the screen settings, you can choose the color scheme, this is a fine adjustment of colors.

The screen fades in the sun, but not much, it remains readable. The screen type is capacitive, up to 5 simultaneous clicks are supported.

Alcatel emphasizes that this model has a very thin bezel around the screen (zero bezel). In fact, the distance is 2.4 mm, which is extremely small, and visually it seems that the screen takes up the entire space from edge to edge.

The screen completely repeats that in Idol X, where there could be no complaints about it, this is a very high-quality matrix, and it remains one of the best in its segment.

Battery

The battery is non-removable, lithium-polymer (Li-Pol), capacity - 2500 mAh. According to the manufacturer, in talk mode the device works on average 12 hours in 3G and 20 hours in 2G, and in standby mode - up to 320 and 240 hours, respectively. Music playback time - 36 hours.

With normal use of the device (an hour of calls, two hours of music, about an hour of social networks, a few photos), it is quite enough for a daylight hours. With less load per day. In the most difficult scenario, he will work with two SIM-cards until 5-6 pm. This is pretty good, since the Galaxy S4 with a larger battery runs down much faster due to the gluttony of the processor, here it is not as powerful, but it lasts longer. The time to fully charge the battery is 2.5 hours (up to 90 percent - 1 hour 45 minutes).

It is curious that the battery capacity has grown from 2000 to 2500 mAh, but it is impossible to notice. In all modes, the operating time remains the same.

Alcatel OneTouch Idol X+

Memory and memory card

The smartphone is equipped with 2 GB of RAM, on average about 1 GB is free after the device boots up. The system occupies 3.3 GB of memory. The single-symbol model has a slot for a microSD memory card. The maximum capacity is 32 GB.

Performance

This uses a MediaTek MT6592 chipset, an octa-core, 2 GHz, ARM Cortex-A7 processor. Mali 450 acts as a graphics accelerator. This is a fairly productive system, but by no means a champion, even in synthetic tests.

On a smartphone, you can run almost any complex toys or applications.

Information from various applications and performance tests:

Camera

The camera interface has been redesigned in favor of simplicity, you can turn on HDR mode, get a panorama, turn off the flash, but that's all. You can take pictures by pressing the screen, focusing occurs at the point of pressing, then the device takes a picture. Second-tier manufacturers don't have such camera modules yet, so it was interesting to compare it to the Galaxy S4. Unfortunately, the miracle did not happen - the quality of the matrix in Idol X + is much worse, which can be seen in the detail of the photos, they often turn out to be blurry even during the day. But when shooting indoors, the camera of this device floats at all, noises appear, when shooting with a flash, the picture is lit, and the focus is mercilessly mistaken, turning the picture into soap. In a word, 13 megapixels here is more of a marketing ploy than reality in comparison with the Galaxy S4 or Sony Xperia Z - the camera is much weaker. However, look at the examples of pictures from this device for yourself.

Запись видео поддерживается в разрешении 1080p, до 30 кадров в секунду.

Итоговый вывод по камере – типична для бюджетных аппаратов, звезд с неба не хватает. Многие производители второго эшелона предлагают качественные 8-мегапиксельные модули, которые снимают очень неплохо, тут в погоне за цифрой рискнули поставить другой модуль, что вылилось в не слишком хорошие фотографии.

Communications

The phone works in 2G (GSM/GPRS/EDGE, 850/900/1800/1900 MHz) and 3G (850/900/2100 MHz) cellular networks. Available Bluetooth version 4.0 for file and voice transfer. There is wireless Wi-Fi IEEE 802.11 b/g/n. The devices, of course, can be used as an access point (Wi-Fi Hotspot) or a modem. USB 2.0 (High-Speed) is used for file transfer and data synchronization. There is a not-too-demanded Wi-Fi Display feature, when you can transmit a signal from your phone to another device via Wi-Fi. Traditionally, there is a Wi-Fi Direct function. There is also a remote Wi-Fi display option.

Software features - Android 4.2.2

In Idol X+, just like in its predecessor, Alcatel uses its own software shell, which can be perceived by many ambiguously, as people often prefer bare Android and are quite satisfied with its capabilities.

Many functions have been heavily reworked, Alcatel has added a number of programs that can be downloaded for free anyway, but the fact that they are preinstalled makes the device more interesting for inexperienced users. Let's start talking about the shell with the lock screen.

Without unlocking the device, you can view the weather forecast for the current day. Scroll the screen to the right, there will be a calendar and a to-do list for the current day (entering tasks or seeing another day will not work). You can also see the status bar, it is also available when the screen is locked if there is no security key or digital code.

The fundamental difference between Alcatel's approach and other shells is that they decided to abandon a separate menu for all applications. On the main screen are the weather widget, several icons. This is the starting point. Scroll the screens to the left, and there will be widgets that you install. We go to the right, and these will be program icons, also some programs have already been removed into folders, this was done by the manufacturer. You get used to such an organization instantly, it is somewhat logical and definitely has the right to life.

The settings menu has its own settings, for example, super saving mode for the battery. The very appearance of the menu is also redesigned in white, which is quite nice. In our https://cars45.com/listing/toyota/previa/1996 video, I talk about most of the apps, I don't want to repeat what the phone has and what has changed compared to previous models.

Further on, I could stop at each program, describe it, but I don’t see much point in this. This is a smartphone, and this software is usually known, or I touched on it in the video. Therefore, see the screenshots below.

Another part that I want to describe separately is the multimedia capabilities. The device has support for unconverted video, the chipset plays 1080p perfectly, unlike its predecessor. In terms of music formats, there is FLAC support, in addition to regular mp3 and a number of others.

HiFi Sound mode has appeared, it makes the sound in the headphones more voluminous. I liked it.

Impressions

In terms of communication quality, there are no complaints about the device, the ringer volume is excellent, you can hear it even from the bag. The vibrating alert feels unusual due to the thickness of the case, you often don't notice it. There are no complaints about the quality of voice transmission.

In March, the device will appear in Russia at a price of 14,990 rubles, it does not look extremely low, especially against the backdrop of the cost of the original Idol X, for which they ask for 12,000 rubles. Initially, it was assumed that the cost would be 13,990 rubles, but the growth of the dollar exchange rate mixed all the cards. The device is interesting in that it fixes bugs in multimedia, plays 1080p video well, and plays music more pleasantly. But other than that, you won't notice any striking differences.

I didn't like the rejection of matte plastic in favor of glossy plastic at all, and the initial choice of white and black cases is also not encouraging. The disadvantages that may make you think is the lack of a memory card, many may need it, unlike a slot for a second SIM card. Good, high-quality screen, balanced functionality. In terms of price / quality ratio, this device does not really stand out, unlike its predecessor. I would advise you to look at it, and keep this model in mind - it is not so interesting for the vast majority, rather, an object of adoration for geeks.
