Expert Analysis

At this price point with a complementary fitness band and premium earphones, Alcatel Onetouch Idol X+ seems to have ticked all the right boxes. It will give tough competition to other true octacore phones in Indian market which are already very few and are higher priced (around Rs. 20,000). We believe that just like Moto G offered highest value for money in its price segment, the Alcatel Onetouch Idol X+ will make a clean sweep too. Buy it before it goes out of stock from flipkart.
