Alcatel One Touch Idol 3 price, best ever Budget Phone

When buying a new smartphone it is often very tempting to buy one of the most recognized manufacturer’s top-end offerings, but let’s face it, in this day and age many of us don’t fully utilize all of the impressive specs at our disposal – can we get away with saving some money and buying a budget smartphone? Alcatel’s upcoming OneTouch Idol 3 specs certainly appear to change the game!


We have just checked out a video uploaded on DetroitBORG’s YouTube channel (embedded at the bottom of this post) which has got a lot of people excited, mainly because for just $249 you are getting Android 5.0 Lollipop, a 1080p 5.5-inch display, front-facing stereo speakers, Qualcomm’s MSM8939 Snapdragon 615 processor, the Adreno 405 GPU, a 13 megapixel rear facing and a super-bright display which outdoes the Samsung Galaxy S6 when it comes to how long the battery lasts when at 400 nits (did we mention it’s $249?).


So here’s the part where we tell you the bad news, that there is very limited carrier support across the U.S. and Canada, but no, it is said to be coming to all major U.S. and Canadian carriers! Neat eh? In fact, we looked around and the most negative comment we read pointed out that the back cover is non-removable.


To be honest we’re not just going to transcribe what has been said by DetroitBORG, so check out the video below for yourself (it includes a nice software walkthrough) and be sure to leave us a comment below with your thoughts. One YouTube commenter says “Best budget phone period in my opinion. You’re getting a lot for $249” – We have to agree! Oh, if you enjoy the video be sure to subscribe to DetroitBORG’s channel!
