Honestly, I like the Idol X design. While it doesn't look too flashy but still outstanding with the 6.9mm thickness and also the zero bezel (2.4mm edge to edge). The display obviously is great thanks to the IPS technology and also 1080p resolution.
Alcatel claim that they built and used their own UI in this phone, known as OneTouch UI. One first glance, OneTouch UI resemble a lot MIUI, Huawei Emotion UI and also iOS7 in terms of simplicity, neat and squarish icon. It is worth to mentioned too that the UI doesn't have apps drawer that vanilla android should have.
There are two flaps on left and right for SIM slot. I am not sure whether both SIM can work on 3G simultaneously or only one on 3G while another on EDGE only.
Overall, Alcatel One Touch Idol X definitely a worth buying smart phones for user who looking for budget, but high performances by whooping the price tag as low as RM1,099. Of course here the good news for you all. Alcatel will be partner with Lazada and starting today the One Touch Idol X will be available at the online store for RM999. Th promo will be available 2 weeks from now before it hit the retail store with the original price.
