Alcatel One Touch Idol Ultra now available, costs 265

08 May, 2013
The world's slimmest Android phone, as Alcatel calls it, has just hit the shelves, costing about 265.

Sort by:

Does the guy who claims this phone is bad because TCL is a chinese company, who TCL is? Aparently he doesn't. TCL is one of the largest and more important electronics companies in the world. Working in ventures with Samsung, Alcatel and IKEA, just to mention a few. Do you think Alcatel, Samsung and IKEA would allow to "charge with old hardware" any of their products? Come on! One thing is "old hardware" and another is "affordable hardware". At this point of technological advance and market competition is stupid to think "the expensive is the best"...

Alcatel is now a Chinese company, not French. The are charging twice as much as UMI but with old hardware.

The GPU on the MTK6577 SoC is now standard on many Chinese phones, clones or originals alike
very bad optimized

1800 mAh battery probably feels more like 1200-1400
