Already traditionally Alcatel One Touch has a whole range of dual SIM phones in its range. In the last model concepts many devices have been presented again optionally with one or two SIM card slots – the top versions, but only as a single-SIM. Thus, the Idol 2 Mini already sorted into the middle class of Alcatel models. As it is compared to other-brand, we looked at.
With its 4.5 “display shows the Idol 2 Mini firstly, that” mini “has become quite large. The “Idol 2” without mini additive way, comes to 5.0 “. But still the Mini when display has the edge: it namely shows the same amount of pixels, and in a smaller space. So the image appear sharper. 960 × 540 pixels are indeed on the paper is not impressive, but in his hand the qHD display appears fresh and clear. Anyone looking happy and often photographs on display, however, could have higher requirements – after all, offer other manufacturers on the same (or even slightly smaller) size HD.
It currently remains this: dual SIM models are lagging somewhat behind when it comes to the Android versions. The Idol 2 Mini is because a small ray of hope as it has at least 4.3 installed Android. The operation corresponds almost entirely to the usual Android menus and functions only in the status bar on the dialpad and in the settings, additional icons or menu items have been added to mitzunutzen the 2nd SIM card.
The 1.2GHz quad-core processor makes in everyday well. High performance can not be expected, a multimedia or gaming smartphone is the Idol 2 Mini does not. Who does not look for, is likely to be happy: The operation itself is liquid, the menus can be opened and scroll quickly.Normal apps like Facebook, weather, as well as various popular games run smoothly. Some popular games are way preinstalled equal: Gameloft LIVE !, Asphalt 7, Real Football 2014, Danger Dash, Little Big City, UNO & Friends. Even videos fun. Incidentally, the phone in dual SIM version twice as much internal memory (ROM) as the mono version: 8 GB instead of 4 GB.
Likelihood of confusion with the label “Idol 2 Mini”
This is also true for the Idol 2 Mini, which is also available as a dual SIM version. If you decide to buy one, but you have to pay close attention: Because the manufacturer calls the same models, whether with 1 or 2 SIM slots. You have to actually pay attention to the internal product number that is why this written in most online stores. Here, therefore, for safety: Both models Alcatel One Touch Idol 2 Mini 6016D and 6016E take 2 SIM cards, the two models with the suffix 6016A and 6016X not. Simple is not it.
6016D or 6016E?
The choice between the two models is somewhat bizarre: The “D” has 1 GB of RAM, the “E” only 512, but can the “E” on 3 UMTS frequencies sparks (850/1900/2100), the “D” only 2 thereof (900/2100), so that the own choice would depend mainly on which UMTS bands you want to use and if you put on more RAM value. Here, too, so you have to look really closely with all offers.
