The selfies are quite decent, with accurate colors, good exposure, and enough detail, keeping noise out of the picture.

In addition, all text content looks crisp at this high pixel density, while text reflow works like a charm, snapping the columns into the screen width immediately.

Reviews Word on the street for the Alcatel OneTouch Idol X+

The 6289 Kelvins white point is excellent, and very close to the reference 6500 K, so you won't notice an overly cold or warm cast while using the display.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


With 441ppi pixel density, the screen is a piece of beauty, showing no icon or text jaggies, even if you explore it up close and personal.

The 1080p display is sufficiently bright for outdoor usage, and very close to the reference white point, though some colors are off.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2014)
Its protection is guaranteed by the durable Asahi Dragontrail glass, which is similar to Corning's Gorilla Glass, and the brand that Alcatel works with on all of its recent phones.

Alcatel did add something extra in addition to the processor upgrade, in the form of audio improvements.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2014)
Its CPU scores slightly below Snapdragon 800, and above Snapdragon 600, but the graphics unit lags behind, being on par with the Snapdragon 600 GPU.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2014)
Granted, the phone has remained relatively compact, and has received important processor, battery capacity and storage upgrades, but the $400 launch price has remained unchanged.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2014)


There are HDR, Panorama, 360, Night and Sports shooting modes, while from the more advanced settings only ISO (up to 1600) and exposure adjustment sliders are present.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2014)
The frontal camera is spiced up with something Alcatel calls Emotishots, which takes four slow successive photos of your expression, giving you the time to adjust for the perfect selfie to rival Miley Cyrus.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2014)
There is also a 2 MP front camera up there, as well as an ambient light sensor which works like a charm, dimming the display gradually when the light goes down, or blasting it up outdoors.

Video playback support is stellar, with DivX/Xvid/MKV files all playing without a hitch in up to 1080p resolutions.
by PhoneArena (Apr, 2014)
The player itself is rather barebone, though, with just an extra loop function, so we'd recommend to quickly pawn off the video footage playback to 3rd party Play Store apps.
