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.

Conclusions The Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 4.7 is a $180 phone that looks and handles like a $350 phone. Under any other circumstances, I'd give it my wholehearted recommendation. The problem is that the same-price Moto G offers a customizable design via...

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 4.7 Review: Smaller But Not Better

 

You'd never know at a glance that the Alcatel Onetouch Idol 3 4.7 costs just $180. The handsome, solid device offers a bright display, loud speakers and capable cameras that will please multimedia gluttons. Too bad the phone doesn't last long on a...

Sleek, petite frame ; Bright, accurate display ; Loud speakers ; Good camera

Short battery life ; Poor performance

The Alcatel Onetouch Idol 3 4.7 is cheaper and more compact than its big brother, but it doesn't last long enough to stand out.

Alcatel Onetouch Idol 3 Smartphone Review

 

The Alcatel Onetouch Idol 3 is one of the best smartphone deals yet. For just $250, you get a very bright display, superb speakers and an all-day battery in a sexy frame. The front and back cameras also performed well, though you'll definitely want to...

Affordable price for unlocked phone ; Bright, accurate and vibrant display ; Long battery life ; Excellent speakers ; Helpful preloaded apps.

Runs hot ; Poor camera performance in low light ; Below-average performance.

The Alcatel Onetouch Idol 3 squeezes a long-lasting battery, Android 5.0 and a solid 5.5-inch display into a sleek frame for just $250 unlocked.

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 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.
