A budget phone with flagship specs

Alcatel One Touch Idol 3

from TechRadar (2 months ago)

The Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 has all the bells and whistles at a fraction the cost of major flagships. It's no flagship killer, but it's also not claiming to be. While good, good isn't always enough.The fact the OneTouch Idol 3 even exists is pretty amazing. If you're willing to live with some imperf... More


Affordable dual-SIM smartphone with decent specs

Alcatel One Touch Idol X+

from PC Advisor (2 months ago)

The Alcatel OneTouch Idol X+ is one of the best dual-SIM phones we've reviewed and a good choice for the price. It has a nice design and good features like a Full HD display and 13 Mp camera but bear in mind that the Moto G 2014 and ZTE Blade S6 are both cheaper and dual-SIM. However, in the wider s... More


Quality stuff from a budget phone

Alcatel One Touch Idol 3

from PhoneArena (2 months ago)

If this is what we can expect from a phone with an MSRP of $250, we’re going to have higher expectations from everyone else going forward. Quite simply, the Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 is a testament to what can be achieved by a phone that’s on a budget. From what we’ve experienced in... More


Best pure purchase on the market

Alcatel One Touch Idol 3

from Brighthand (2 months ago)

At a time when many phone makers find themselves changing their flagship phones for change’s sake to help justify keeping their high price points, there continues to be a need for phones like the Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3. Instead of building for an eternal tomorrow, Alcatel realizes that it&rsq... More


One of the best budget phones of the year

Alcatel One Touch Idol 3

from Android Authority (2 months ago)

We might be looking at one of the best affordable devices this year. With plenty of mid-range to lower-end devices coming out all the time, it’s great to see Alcaltel remaining unique from the rest, without the need for any crazy features or gimmicks. A larger screen with dual front facing spe... More


Affordable price for unlocked phone

Alcatel One Touch Idol 3

from Tom's Guide (2 months ago)

It may not be a top-of-the-line handset, but the Idol 3 might make you reconsider what you want in a smartphone. For just $250, you get a solid display, superb speakers and an all-day battery in a sexy frame. But its below-average performance is not ideal for the power user, and it gets hot at times... More


Not just a good phone for the price, but a really good phone overall

Alcatel One Touch Idol 3

from Android and Me (2 months ago)

I went into this review unsure of what the Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 would be. Alcatel OneTouch has been hyping the Idol 3 like any good company should, but does it live up to the hype? I think so. Alcatel OneTouch found a way to over deliver with a great smartphone experience for a great price. The I... More


Its performance ensures that this is a device that punches well above its weight

Alcatel One Touch Idol 3

from Phonedog (2 months ago)

All in all, the Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 is easily worth the $249. In fact, anyone looking for a great smartphone experience without needing to sign up to an expensive plan or has a budget less than $300 should just get one. Whatever reputation Alcatel OneTouch may have had of releasing budget phones... More

A flagship budget phone with a great camera

Alcatel One Touch Idol 3

from Chip Chick (3 months ago)

The Idol 3 Goes head to head with the likes of the Moto G and outperforms it, and even though it does cost more than the Moto G, it’s worth the extra money to shell out for it. To that effect, you’ll be hard pressed to find such a good value in a smartphone at this price-point. Overall,... More


The best budget phone of 2015

Alcatel One Touch Idol 3

from Android Guys (3 months ago)

It is definitely not a powerhouse, but the experience of using it is great. I will miss some of the features like the Reversible UI and double-tap to wake immediately. Of course, it is not perfect. Performance suffered from time to time and the camera is okay at best, but for $250, I would put the A... More

Alcatel One Touch Pop 7S

Playing video files transferred by Bluetooth to my laptop play upside down, WHY, and how can I fix it? Please!!!


I love this little phone.

Alcatel A205G

It's easy to use, holds its battery length well and I think a perfect phone for a senior like me who does not use a cell phone very often.

Phone drops calls and opens to home page

Alcatel One Touch Idol 3

(13 days ago)

When ever the phone rings and I pick it up, it drops the call and opens the home page, I then have to search for who called and phone them back, just got this phone with 2 year contract and will replace in 22 months, never again.


Drops calls when touched and opens the home page.

Just replaced my nexus4 with this new Alcatel One Touch and very disappointed with this phone, will replace in 22 months, when the phone rings, I pick it up and it closes the caller off and opens the home page, leaving me to look for whom ever called and phoning them back.


I love this phone because I can throw it very far into the middle of a lake.

Alcatel One Touch Pop Icon

(24 days ago)

Features: - Freezes more often than a 95 year old woman in an unheated log cabin. - Apps are useless. Most of them don't work. - Memory - about as much as a 2 day old baby. - cost: way too high for this piece of junk - Tracfone loves these junky phones because they probably sell more of them than...

Affordable, low-cost option.

Alcatel A205G

(25 days ago)

Perfect if you just need to call people. Ideal for seniors. I wish however it was easily able to be unlocked to other carriers. And I wish there was a setting to set manual time.


Worst product the world has ever seen.

Alcatel One Touch Evolve

(29 days ago)

This phone, I don't even think it deserves to be a called a phone, this specie is the worst product ever produced under the sun ever. My dream is to meet the owner of Alcatel and sit down with him or her and understand what the incentive was in making this phone and this whole brand. if I start to g... More


Basic No Frills Phone

Alcatel One Touch Pop C1

(about 1 month ago)

Ive had this phone for about 6 months and I love it. If you just want a basic android phone for calling, sending text messages and checking your emails then its the one to go for. The camera is ok outside in daylight, but dont expect anything great indoors. Processor is also 1Ghz, so again dont expe... More
