Description

The Alcatel OneTouch Idol Ultra grabs the world’s thinnest smartphone title from the BBK Vivo X1 and challenges others to beat it at 6.45mm (0.25 inches). It is a pretty capable device with a 720p Super AMOLED, but PenTile screen, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor of unknown variety, 1 gig of RAM and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. On the back there is an 8-megapixel camera, while up front Alcatel uses a 1.3-megapixel shooter.

  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 312 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
