Price comparison

Design

1.weight

109g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
2.thickness

7.4mm

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
3.height

133.5mm

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
4.width

66.8mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.volume

65.99cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.

Display

1.pixel density

312ppi

Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
2.resolution

720 x 1280px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
3.screen size

4.7"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
Alcatel One Touch Idol S
The device has an LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixel, resulting in sharp and crisp images. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.
5.has an IPS screen
Alcatel One Touch Idol S
IPS (In-Plane Switching) is a technology used for LCDs. It was designed to overcome the main limitations of conventional twisted nematic TFT displays: limited viewing angles and low-quality color reproduction. PLS (Plane-to-Line Switching) is a type of IPS screen developed by Samsung, with increased brightness and lower production costs.
6.has a touch screen
Alcatel One Touch Idol S
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.

Performance

1.CPU speed

2 x 1.2GHz

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
2.RAM

2GB

Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
3.has an external memory slot
Alcatel One Touch Idol S
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
4.internal storage

16GB

The internal storage, also called read-only memory (ROM), refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.

Cameras

1.megapixels (main camera)

8MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
2.megapixels (front camera)

1.3MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the front camera. A higher megapixel count means that the front camera is capable of capturing more details, an essential factor for taking high-resolution selfies.
3.video recording (main camera)

1080 x 30fps

The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.
4.has a built-in HDR mode
Alcatel One Touch Idol S
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
5.has a flash
Alcatel One Touch Idol S
A flash is good for low-light environments, and can sometimes be used as flashlight.
6.has manual ISO
Alcatel One Touch Idol S
This allows to manually set the ISO level.

Audio

1.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
Alcatel One Touch Idol S
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
2.Has a radio
Alcatel One Touch Idol S
A built-in FM radio tuner allows you to listen to most of the live-broadcasted FM radio stations without using the internet.

Battery

1.battery power

2000mAh

Battery power, or battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. More battery power can be an indication of longer battery life.
2.has a battery level indicator
Alcatel One Touch Idol S
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
3.has a rechargeable battery
Alcatel One Touch Idol S
The battery can be recharged and used over again.

Features

1.download speed

100MBits/s

The download speed is a measurement of the internet connection bandwidth, representing the maximum data transfer rate at which a device can access online content.
2.is DLNA-certified
Alcatel One Touch Idol S
All DLNA-certified products are compatible with one another. When different devices are connected to the same network, data can be transferred easily between them.
3.Bluetooth version

4

Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves. Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
4.upload speed

50MBits/s

The upload speed is a measurement of the internet connection bandwidth, representing the maximum data transfer rate at which a device can send information to a server or another device.
5.supports two SIM cards
Alcatel One Touch Idol S
A dual-SIM mobile phone can work with two SIM cards at the same time.
6.is a multi-user system
