The perfect package at a low price
The Alcatel One Touch Idol 2 Mini shows off a rich 4.5-inch, IPS LCD, 16M colors display that offers a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels and a pixel density of 245 ppi. It is backed by a team of a 1.2GHz Quad Core processor and 1GB RAM, and runs Android v4.3 OS (Jelly Bean) that is upgradable to KitKat (v4.4).
On the rear face, the device has a powerful 8MP autofocus snapper that is inclusive of geo-tagging, LED flash, panorama, HDR and touch focus and capable of shooting 1080p videos. It supports video chatting with the 2MP front facing camera. The One Touch Idol 2 Mini has an internal memory of 8GB that can be expanded up to 32GB.
On the connectivity front, the device features 3G, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, hotspot, NFC, microUSB 2.0 port and GPS/AGPS. The smartphone packs a 1,700mAh Li-ion battery supporting a maximum 3G talk time of 9 hours and a maximum 3G standby time of 450 hours.
Despite featuring some extremely powerful features, the Alcatel One Touch Idol 2 Mini is reasonably priced. The vivid display coupled with quality speakers boosts your gaming and movie watching experience. You can capture sharp photos and videos, and exchange data at ease thanks to the support for 3G and NFC. However, the 1,700mAh Li-ion battery comes as a bit of disappointment.
