The midrange battle is a heated one, and Alcatel One Touch Idol Ultra is well-positioned in terms of price and specs, with its $300 tag for an elegant chassis, HD AMOLED display and 8 MP camera.

These qualities get spoiled by the weakling MediaTek chipset, though, and we wish Alcatel spent a few bucks more for a well-rounded Snapdragon. The slim, stylish body has brought with it some major compromises, too, like insufficient battery capacity, lack of a microSD slot and a finicky micro SIM one, not to mention the adapter needed to plug in a standard headphone set.

Performs well without lags and jerks

from NDTV

Alcatel One Touch Idol Ultra is a nice looking smartphone, which has almost all the design elements that most premium smartphone offer. The overall build quality of the smartphone is good. However, the display is not really what you would expect from a top line smartphone. The primary colours look brighter than usual.
