The Alcatel One Touch Idol Ultra features a 4.65 inch HD AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. The phone is powered by Dual-core 1.2 GHz processor on a MediaTek MTK 6577 and 1 GB of RAM. The phone runs on Android OS, v4.1 (Jelly Bean).  Alcatel One Touch Idol Ultra also features an 8 MP primary camera with digital zoom and LED flash, as well as 1.3 MP secondary front-facing camera for video calls. The phone comes with 16GB of internal storage, of which 13.3 GB is available to the user. The device also supports MicroSD to expand external usage up to 32 GB.

The phone has a width of 6.45mm, which has led the company to tout it as the thinnest smartphone on the market. However, to get this accolade of the ‘thinnest smartphone’, the device has had to compromise on some matters, such as the phone does not feature an audio jack. The phone does come with a USB to 3.5 mm jack adapter, which means that the USB port doubles as an audio port.

Xolo is a subsidy of Lava, a technology and mobile phone company based in India. In addition to making handsets for the Indian Market, Lava has various other segments under its banner, such as tablets, datacards and routers. As the India market is very price sensitive, Lava has had to produce an affordable range of phones. The Android based smartphones of the company are mainly released under two of its brands: Iris and Xolo.

Xolo came around when Lava tied up with Intel to release the Intel based smartphone, the Intel AZ510 in India. The phone was branded as Xolo X900. The brand endured and now handles Lava’s mid-range Android-based smartphones. The Xolo Q800 is one such hone that Lava has recently released into the market.

XOLO has also launched the XOLO X1000, an Intel-based smartphone. The XOLO x1000 runs on a single-core Intel Atom Processor Z2480. It has a processing speed of 2 GHz due to its hyper threading capabilities, as well as a 1 GB RAM. It is a single-SIM phone with 8 GB of internal memory. It comes with Android OS v4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich), which is a bit outdated, but the company has promised an update by the end of 2013. The phone also features a 4.7 inch Sharp TFT LCD with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. The phone hosts an 8 MP primary camera with burst mode, and a 1.3 MP secondary camera.

The information for the detailed table about the two phones has been taken from the Alcatel One Touch Idol Ultra website, the XOLO website, fonearena.com and thinkdigit.com and GSMArena.com.
