Filipinos are undeniably sucker for photographs. We flash our warm and cool smiles when a camera is pointed at us and when we go out, we just couldn’t help to take pictures of the places we have been to. Especially when traveling, one of the essentials that one must not to forget is the camera. Do we have to elaborate more on this?
Well, it’s a good news that we don’t need a more expensive cameras (eg. dSLR) to capture great moments. Thanks to the never-ending upgrades in technology, our mobile phone became our handy friendly camera as well. And with that, competition arises in what mobile phone’s brand is a good choice.
Luckily, we were given the opportunity to test one of the latest model unit from ALCATEL ONETOUCH, the IDOL, and for almost a month, we enjoyed a road test of the ALCATEL ONETOUCH IDOL gadget using mainly its camera functionality.
ALCATEL ONE TOUCH IDOL is a touch screen mobile unit, zero gap on display with 67.5mm wide surface; 133mm in height; and 7.9mm thin android phone. Weight is only 110g and you can barely feel its weight when you’re holding this gadget and sliding into your pocket.
It has a 1800 mAh lithium battery and can last up to 2 days maximum mobile and data usage. Charging time is 2.5 hrs.
This unit is backed-up by a powerful Dual-Core 1GHz processor for speed and web browsing running on Android Jelly Bean 4.1 version.
Apart from the specs mentioned above, IDOL has camera features of different modes like HDR, Auto Scene Detect, Best Shot, Smile Shot, Panoramic, 360, and more functionality. It is equipped with 8 megapixel HD camera combining with amazing [email protected] video recording and [email protected] replay of great moments. Internal memory is up to 4GB + 1 GB RAM with end user memory of 2.4GB and can pack a 32GB Micro SD.
Since we love to travel, we brought the IDOL from as far as Kula Lumpur Malaysia, to Quezon province, up to the far island of Camiguin to see how this phone lives up with its camera feature.
Below are some of our photos using the IDOL.
Definitely, IDOL is a good buy. We love its 4.7″ IPS qHD display wide screen for fine details and great viewing angles; and the easy grip feel of this android phone. It feels weightless and easy to slid into the pocket. Glass display protection is a super strong DragonTrail that is scratch proof, with oleophobic coating, which keeps it clean from smudges and fingerprints. The unit comes with a protector transparent plastic shield.
If you are looking for these elements then IDOL must be included in your list.
