The Bottom Line

If you like to have a octa core-device finely chiseled out of poly carbonate and metal strips bundled along with a great camera unit at an extremely affordable price then go for the Idol X+. Bad part is the thin chances of getting an update from the Jellybean.

Alcatel has been recently taking the smartphone race a tad too seriously with the evidence being the Idol X of the previous year. The Idol X plus carries the same value proposition along with some enhancement. X plus houses the most powerful processor with an octa core layer and has mind boggling specs. The build quality is upmarket and the phone is elegant and yet maintains a sleek outlook.

Design and Build:

The bezel are thinned and the paint finish although glossy doesnt end up looking cheap. The periphery of the device has been treated with an aluminum strip which is similar to the one in iPhones. The volume rocker and the power button are finished in metal and are a little too sleek to operate with ease. Memory card slot and the Sim slots are incorporated on the side and flushed with metal. The rear panel is plain and glossy which means that X+ wont hesitate to pick up those fingerprint smudges. Camera lens and the flash are neatly tucked inside the back panel with no part protruding out. The button of the phone has an dual speaker which the Alcatel calls the HiFi sound, something pretty much similar to the boom speakers in the HTC Desire 816.  Overall the Idol X+ looks neat along with a high degree of elegance something which we usually see a lot in the iPhones.

Camera Performance:

Idol X+ has a 13.1 Megapixel along with an usual LED flash. Camera has an intuitive interface and the background of the interface is translucent along with manual control over the exposure. The detailing is good and the exposure levels are accurate without any signs of over saturation. Auto focus latches swiftly and is equally affective. Macro shots exhibit a great deal of detail. Flash has a good range and the illumination is apt. Pictures taken in HDR mode take some time to get processed and the end result is somewhat virtual with the ranging being excessively vivid. Videos are recorded in full HD at a frame rate of 30fps. The bad part about the video recording is that the frame rate starts trickling down once we take it in low light. The secondary camera is a laudable 2MP camera and is bundled with an unique options called Emoti shots which takes burst shots of your selfie and stitches them.

Display Clarity:

The 5 inch screen is cordoned by the thin bezel vertically and it has an impressive resolution of 1080 x 1920 and an extremely dense pixel density of 440ppi. Viewing angles are good and the screen is less reflective in the outdoors. Touch sensitivity is commendable as the screen responds well even if you wear gloves. Alcatel has opted for a Asahi Dragontrail glass which is similar to the Corning gorilla glass. The interface overlay is strikingly similar to the Amigo UI in the Gionee phones. Alcatel has popped in some widgets and freebies like the Gameloft titles.

Processing Speed:

Alcatel has bestowed the Idol+ with an Mediatek Octa core processor which is speedy at 2.0GHz. The processor is slightly crippled and is not something to brag about as the cores are based on the dated and less efficient Cortex A7 architecture. Idol X+ has a 2GB of RAM and an 16GB of internal memory which aides faster and lagfree multitasking experiences. It runs graphic intensive titles with relative ease and no framedrops or choppy graphics. 

Power On It:

Idol X+ is powered by a 2500mAh battery pack sealed inside the back panel. It delivers an impressive backup of atleast a complete day with above average usage. The octa cores are frugal and less powerful which literally translates into not so great performance and a better battery backup.


Wrapping it up Alcatel Idol X+ is a good value for money proposition with specs like the octa-core processor being the USP of this device. Good build quality and no tacky touches here and their along with the surprisingly sleek design make the Idol X+ a good Cosmetic buy. Its only when we dive deep into the performance analysis do we find out that the MediaTec processors performance is something that we could equate to the mid range Snapdragon 600. The camera quality is good with enhanced lighting characteristics. Idol X+ doesn't shy away from running graphic intensive games and applications. Alcatel need to extend their aftersales support and try to improvise over the sales channel. 

I Want To By Best Smartphone Under 20,000 For All Purposes.


Please suggest which phone will be best for me in which 5" FHD, 441ppi, 2gb ram, minimum 16gb memory with gloss protection and minimum 5 point touch response, some features like 13 mp Camera, games and internet surfing etc. my choice are: 1. Alcatel Onetouch Idol X Plus 2. Micromax Canvas Knight a350 3. Gionee elife S5.5 4. Gionee elife e6 5. Lenovo k900 6. Intex aqua i7


Gionee elife s5.5 is the best among the phones mentioned above and than comes Alcatel idol x plus but the camera isnt that great. you can consider elife e7 if you want amazing camera. Gionee do have some heating issue as well. I would recommend you HTC desire 816 it doesn't meet the specs you mentioned but certainly a good phone with long life.

Sony Xperia Z Smart Phone


Dear Sir, After go through the full specifications of Micromax Canvas Knight a350, Alcatel Onetouch Idol X Plus, Karbonn Titanium Octane Plus, Gionee elife e7, Gionee elife s5.5 It is found that the benchmark of these phones are higher than Sony Xperia Z but the price of this phone is higher than all above phones. So that I could not understand that why the benchmarks of Sony xperia Z are less. I want to purchase an smartphone with latest software, 5" FHD, dual sim, Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and minimum 441ppi + 13mp rear camera with removal battery of not less than 2500 mAh. Kindly suggest the better phone under Rs.20,000/- Kindly also suggest that whether OnePlus One (Chines) offer price of Rs.21,000/- (65gb internal memory) mobile will be better than all Indian Brands and International brands of same price range.


Hello, OnePlus one was announced with really impressive specs and seems to be a nice phone providing a superb performance experience but I am certain, if the device will be made available in Dual Sim version. If you can conpromise on this requiremnet of Dual sim, then I would suggest to go with OnePlus one or else Lava xolo q3000 can also be a nice option for you coming with comparatively lower price tag



Dear Sir…..My Budget Is Around 17k……i will be buying a phone next week……..can u suggest me which phone should i buy… requirements are 1.) average gaming 2.) 4.7 inch or bigger display 3.) any camera…i am not a camera guy 4.) around 23oo mah battery 5.) quad core or octa core 6.) 1 or 2 gb ram preferably 2 gb ram 7.) any android version above 4.1.1 8.)Memory card support and if not then otg support……yup thats pretty much it……eagerly waitin for ur suggestions…….BUDGET IS 18K


Please dont get into gimmick of cores etc. Gionee Elife E6 is one of the best phone in that price range with amazing specs 2GB RAM, 32GB internal memory. Alcatel idol x plus has also made a dent in that segment and is quite affordable too You can also consider buying samsung galaxy s3 price has been down to 19000 Here is the detail comparison of the 3 phones i recommended see what suits you the best

Smartphone With 2gb Ram, 5" FHD Screen, 13MP Or More Rear Camera, 441ppi, Good Battery Backup And 16/32gb Memory


I have go through all below mentioned smartphones but confused to which can buy. The names of smartphones are as under:- 1. Micromax canvas Knight A350 2. Karbonn Titanium Octane Plus 3. Alcatel Onetouch Idol X Plus 4. Sony xperia Z 5. Gionee elife e7 6. Gionee elife s5.5 Kindly suggest me that which is the best for me because I want to use the phone for calling, Internet, gaming and photography. I fully agree with you but I could not understand that why the benchmarks of Sony xperia Z are less than MMX canvas Knight a350 and Alcatel Onetouch Octane Plus.


Karbonn. micromax is not a brand you want to go for High-end smartphone when u hav budget of 20k. Alcatel is worth the price specially when u get free JBL headphones with it but the processor isnt great and 13mp camera doesnt really act like 13mp in the likes of nokia, samsung etc. Gionee S5.5 seems to have heating issue as per as user reviews. but everythng else of this phone is awesome. If you have strict budget of less than 20k go with s5.5 and if you can add a few more thousand to it Please go for sony xperia z, amazing specs and elegant look far better than any mobile mentioned above and will last longer.. Let me know which one u did u finally buy. Happy Shopping!


If your budet is upto 14k then intex aqua i7 and in your list top 3 and 6free are not upto the mark and gionee elife e7 is best but i suggest you in your range the best phone htc one e8 best comapny best phone
