Alcatel One Touch Idol - Every Super Hero needs an Iron Patriot (a.k.a. Sidekick)

Alcatel One Touch Idol Ultra is its Iron Man watch. The phone is featured in Iron Man 3. Every Super Hero has it side kick. Iron Man, well he has Iron Patriot. Alcatel created a lower end version of its Alcatel One Touch Idol Ultra, the Alcatel One Touch Idol. 

Other than dropping Ultra from the name, there are a few other specifications trimmed in the Alcatel One Touch Idol. 

The non-Ultra Alcatel One Touch Idol gets downgraded to 4.65-inch qHD (540 x 960) display, and you get IPS unit instead of an AMOLED one. The phone is still thin at 7.9 mm, but not as thin as the 6.5 mm slim Ultra. RAM has been cut down from 1 GB to 512 MB and internal storage has been reduced from 16 GB to 4 GB. The processor is clocked down a bit too.

Quick specs:
  • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
  • 4.65-inch HD display (720 x 1280) 
  • 4 GB internal storage, not expandable
  • 512 MB RAM
  • 1 GHz dual core Mediatek processor 
  • PowerVR SGX531 GPU
  • 8 MP primary camera, autofocus with LED flash
  • 1.3 MP front camera
  • HSPA
  • WiFi
  • Bluetooth
  • A-GPS
  • 1800 mAh battery
With the cuts made in design and specifications, the Alcatel One Touch Idol is selling at Php11,200 with an official warranty. This is 2.7K lower than the Php13,990 asking price Alcatel One Touch Idol Ultra, from the same seller.

Given all the changes in specifications, it would seem to be better to spend the extra cash and get the Super Hero, rather than the sidekick.
