Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

If there is one thing absolutely vital in my smartphone other than great call management, is it being able to download and edit most email attachments; and much more such as Document Viewer, Adobe Reader, Evernote, Office Suite present in this device. No point fidgeting with a screen that poses real struggle both while watching videos and typing on the cramped keyboard, the portability that is offered by the smaller screen seems futile against the little value it bids with respect to functionality. I more than often choose for efficient devices like the as it present me with a robust call management; as I am hardly ever off my phone. Bluetooth file sharing is really not of much use to me, but this feature is really handy when it comes to hands-free calling. Even if my travel routes, both business and pleasure, is very much known to me I'd still like the reassurance from the GPS navigation on my phone.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

The size of the Alcatel Onetouch Idol Mini 6012D makes it extremely portable, but with its tiny and cramped keypad it's really not of much use to me. I keep zooming in on many images and forwards and multi-touch makes this really simple. Video recording is a must on my phone, I just love recording and capturing the innocence of cake compromising or the craziness of a dinner party. I won't worry about the other boasts of in the Alcatel Onetouch Idol Mini 6012D as the camera is so average and a strong deterrent for me. If you have as many photographs and videos on your phone, then you might have to delete a few because within few weeks you will face storage issues.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

Although the display looks particularly pleasing, the tiny screen size is too awkward to please the gamer or the ardent bookworm in me. The multi-touch screen lets me to zoom in or zoom out during a game; also, it feels so real to flick pages of an ebook using my fingers. The 1.3 GHz is quite a decent frequency, but I would desire something higher than that for gaming. The frequent lags and sluggish loading of games of the dual core processor drives me up the wall. Even the lowest graphics games need RAM higher than this. A hardcore gamer true to his passion would never desire a smartphone with such a low storage, even if it have the flexibility to accommodate most of the apps, music and ebooks.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

For me the 4.3 inches display is the first thing I noticed in the Alcatel Onetouch Idol Mini 6012D. I love texting and all my friends too prefer texting over talking, so I find the screen size of the Alcatel Onetouch Idol Mini 6012D is very cramped. I have the flexibility to zoom in or zoom out images by with pinching movements of my fingers on the screen of the Alcatel Onetouch Idol Mini 6012D. And flick my fingers to rotate images or turn pages of ebook; that's why the Multi-Touch technology is really nice. Yes, 5 MP is not that particularly pleasing camera resolution. You can easily go for any other smartphone with a better camera, it might even be cheaper. I love clicking pictures with my smartphone and this one doesn't seem up for it. I can't imagine my smartphone without the secondary camera. I and my friends simply love the selfies and groupies and click hundreds of them. It's too much effort to do it with the main camera, so having a cool front camera is much better; it is more fun to have front camera with higher megapixels. I have the flexibility to now travel to almost any new place or location with the built-in GPS and it is great help during various emergencies, traffic updates or navigation issues. I don't worry charging when I have the flexibility to charge my phone with the laptop; I have the flexibility to even transfer files with this. With the 8 GB internal storage I have to chose between which music, movies, videos and images to keep or delete from your phone. It's irritating to delete favourite files from my smartphone due to memory issues, so I always select larger internal storage.
