Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 4.7

 

Among those advantages is a slim, compact silhouette and a reversible software interface that lets you grab up the phone any which way without fumbling for "up." Strong JBL dual speakers also pump out tunes and conference calls better than most in this...

The Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 (4.7) has a portable, compact size and delivers solid performance across the board for a budget price. Hardware and software extras add value.

Stumbling blocks include its harder-to-use camera app and won't work on every global carrier.

A rare smaller-screen Android handset that's worth its price, Alcatel's 4.7-inch Idol 3 is a solid buy for those seeking a low-cost, sub-5-inch phone.

Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 4.7 (Unlocked)

 

The Alcatel One Touch Idol 3 4.7 is an affordable and compact unlocked smartphone that punches above its weight on performance, but it's still hard to recommend over the Moto G.

Wallet-friendly price. Attractive design. Solid build quality. Crisp display. 4G LTE connectivity. Loud speakers

Camera struggles in low light. Limited RAM for multitasking. Small battery

The $179.99 Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 4.7 is the smaller cousin to the OneTouch Idol 3 5.5, and the closest direct competitor to Motorola's latest Moto G . Both are budget-friendly unlocked smartphones with good displays and similar overall performance....

Alcatel One Touch Idol 3 (Unlocked)

 

The unlocked Alcatel One Touch Idol 3 is an exceptional Android smartphone value that more than lives up to its lofty spec sheet.

Aggressive price. Top-notch 5.5-inch, full HD LCD. Attractive and well-built. 4G LTE connectivity

Merely average battery life and call quality

Alcatel is in the business of producing dirt-cheap smartphones, and has been for years now, but with few exceptions, you get what you paid for—at best cheap, at worst dirt. The One Touch Idol 3 is out to change perceptions. It lists at $279.99, but you...

Alcatel Onetouch Idol 3 4.7-inch Review

 

Taking nearly everything about what that particular smartphone has to offer, and repackaging it in a significantly smaller chassis, what we have now is the Alcatel Onetouch Idol 3 4.7-inch – a smartphone that's sure to pique interest with its...

Hard-to-beat $180 cost ; Compact size & svelte construction ; Exceptionally strong brightness output with the display ; Rich and powerful JBL speakers ; Good battery life performance

Weak camera performance under lower light ; Choppy video capture ; Sluggish performance with heavier operations

We can’t stress enough about its pricing! At $179.99 outright, the Alcatel Onetouch Idol 3 4.7-inch offers good value in such a compact package – more so when there are so many qualities we like about it. The svelte construction and its compact size...

Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 Review: More of This, Please

 

The Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 joins the ranks of the OnePlus One and Moto G in providing high quality at a genuinely affordable price. Here's our review.

Excellent value ; Vivid display ; Long-lasting battery ; Mostly clean take on Android

Average performance ; Camera underwhelms in low-light settings ; Parts of design feel cheap

Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 (4.7) review

 

Although it can't match the top-spec smartphones for all-round ability, the Alcatel is a fine alternative for those on a budget...

Great video and sound for the money Impressive camera software

Good for the price, but not up to flagship standards

We’re very impressed with the Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3. It’s a midrange phone that punches well above its weight, and at almost a third of the price, the big flagship models have cause for concern. It’s not perfect, but if you’re not after a premium...

Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 4.7 review

 

Mid-range specs at a sensible price? We wouldn't blame you for being interested

Strong screen ; Decent battery life ; Super-loud speakers ; An all-round tasteful phone

Annoying keyboard lag ; Impersonation metal is so last season ; Screen not as scratch resistant as some

Alcatel OneTouch’s best phone yet is a petite palm-charmer

Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 hands-on review

 

You may have never heard of Alcatel but the company, which is a joint venture between Alcatel Lucent of France and TCL Communication of China, is making increasingly attractive devices including smartphones, tablets and wearables.

Alcatel OneTouch is definitely one to look out for this year. The Idol 3 comes in two different sizes with an attractive and reversible design. Specs look great for the price with a lot more on offer at 5.5in if that's not too big compared to 4.7in....

Alcatel One Touch Idol 3 review - hands on

 

Alcatel's latest One Touch Idol 3 has dual microphones and dual speakers so you can use it upside down

Both sizes will be available in Europe between May and June, with the 4.7in model costing around £199 SIM-free and the 5.5in around £250 SIM-free, so stayed tuned for our final verdict once we get hold of review samples.

Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 review: This phone proves there's still merit in smaller screens

 

The 4.7-inch version of Alcatel's OneTouch Idol 3 is smaller and slightly weaker-of-hardware than the 5.5-inch budget powerhouse that knocked our socks off for its price category -- it costs $180 in the US, about £150 in the UK and $299 in Australia....

The Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 (4.7) has a portable, compact size and delivers solid performance across the board for a budget price. Hardware and software extras add value

Stumbling blocks include its harder-to-use camera app and won't work on every global carrier

A rare smaller-screen Android handset that's worth its price, Alcatel's 4.7-inch Idol 3 is a solid buy for those seeking a low-cost, sub-5-inch phone.
