Anyway, let’s quickly take a look at both devices.

The Alcatel One Touch Idol S is significantly an improvement from the first generation OT Idol. It has a 4.7 inch display, a slightly bigger 1.2 GHz dual core processor (improvement from 1GHz dual core processor from Alcatel One Touch Idol), 8 megapixel camera, and running Android 4.2 Jellybean.
