Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3

 

The Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 is the company's flagship Android phone. It's unlikely to be spoken of in the same sentence as the Samsung Galaxy S6 or the HTC One M9 for a couple of reasons. Firstly, Alcatel doesn't have the marketing pull to compete with...

Attractive plastic design ; Some unique Android tweaks ; Impressive sounding speakers ; Sharp Full HD screen

Laggy when multitasking ; 13-megapixel shooting not as reliable as 10-megapixel shooting

Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 5.5 review

 

Giant screen, smallish price

Big, bright screen ; Good value ; Loud speakers

Fake chrome damaged easily ; Some nagging performance issues

This good-value giant is proof we should now take Alcatel OneTouch a lot more seriously

Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 review

 

A budget phone with flagship specs

Vibrant screen ; Dual front stereo speakers ; 8MP front-facing camera ; Solid battery life

Sluggish interface ; One color ; No quick charging

Alcatel Idol 3 stands out from other budget phones with two microphones that make it reversible. More than a one-trick pony, it also has decent specs to back up this feature.

Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 (5.5) review

 

Redemption at last. Alcatel's OneTouch Idol 3 manages to overcome the company's bad track record for phones with snazzy looks, but shaky performance and specs.

The mega-affordable Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 has a large screen and takes nice outdoor photos. It wins bonus points for loud external speakers and a useful mode to use the OS upside-down as well as right-side-up.

Its performance is a little sluggish, its low-light photography is poor and the OS lacks a few useful shortcuts common to other Android phones.

Delivering midrange features at an entry-level price, the Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 is the company's best smartphone to date -- and a great deal for the money.

Alcatel One Touch Idol 3 5.5 – Review

 

Avery good and well specified device that has a unique talent at a bargain price. Catch it while you can.

Software So it has nice hardware, but what about the software – is that any good? In a nut shell, yes it is… with a few very minor caveats. I have made a little video to show off the software, warts and all. I have been very impressed with the . I...

Review: Alcatel One Touch – Idol 3 (5.5″)

 

What would you think if you were sent a phone with the highlight that it was totally reversible display, and you could make calls while holding it upside down?[...]

I think Alcatel OneTouch are on to a winner with the Idol 3. All this phone for £200? Go (online) and get one now! You will not regret it.

Alcatel Onetouch Idol 3: A Nexus by another name [REVIEW]

 

Great full HD display, Loud front-facing stereo speakers ; Slim design ; Good camera ; Speedy performance ; All-day battery life ; Only $250

Power button's location is unreachable ; Volume buttons are too high up ; Camera exposure has issues

The Alcatel Idol 3 is a $250 Android smartphone worth idolizing.

Review: Alcatel Onetouch Idol 3

 

The Idol 3 is designed to be able to run in reversible mode. This means that thanks to the dual speakers and mics you can pick it up any way you want and the display and even the front-facing camera will adjust to fit whichever way you are holding the...

A clutter free user interface, full access to Lollipop apps and features as well as a great camera, processor and dual speakers as well as the 1080p HD display will meet and even surpass expectations of users looking for an unlocked and LTE-capable...

Review: Alcatel Onetouch Idol 3

 

This inexpensive Android phone doesn't have a lot of power, but it has some unique features including a reversible design that works upside-down.

Completely reversible design with microphones and speakers at both ends. Inexpensive at $250 unlocked. Clean Android experience. The front-facing speakers are loud, and the bundled earphones are great. Outstanding display. Plasticky but not cheap body....

Sluggish performance with heavy operations; not suitable for hardcore gamers. Only 16GB of internal storage, though it does have a microSD slot. Comes in just one flavor: boring gray

Alcatel Idol 3 review: Not a bad phone for not a lot of cash

 

At $250 unlocked, the Idol 3 costs less than half the price of a high-end smartphone. But it's not half-bad.

Camera quality tends to be the Achilles heel of cheap phones, and that includes the Idol 3. The phone’s 13-megapixel shooter is capable of decent photos, but you need steady hands, and the results always looked more yellow than the iPhone 6 Plus and...
