Alcatel One Touch Idol Ultra Review

Planted in the affordable midrange segment, the slimmest member of Alcatel's One Touch line is just 0.25" (6.45mm) thick. It still sports a respectable 4.7" HD Super AMOLED display and 8 MP camera, but the rest of the specs are an underwhelming MediaTek processor and 1 GB of RAM, plus there is no microSD slot. The design is an eye-grabber, though, and if the price is right, the One Touch Ultra might have a shot at midrange fame if it gets the rest of the components right. Is it so? Read on to find out...

Sad, the phone falls short almost solely because of it's processor.

This remind me of Xperia Ion. Good phone but too late.

367/3.2 fps in Egypt HD? Damn! That has got to suck big time. The looks is the only thing i can compliment for this device. Otherwise i'd refer the Lumia 720.
