The 4.7 inch version of Alcatel's One Touch Idol Three is a really good budget buy, and it goes neck and neck with Motorola's Moto G. It also happens to be a really great phone for somebody who's looking for a budget buy.
It looks cooler than you would expect for a budget phone.
It's got the sort of brushed feel on the backing, and metallic trim along the sides.
And it is very small, pocketable and maneuverable with that 4.7 inch display.
It runs Android 5.0 Lollipop hopefully it will upgrade to Marshmallow soon.
Alcatel has added a couple neat software features including one where you can pick up the phone in any direction and the orientation will swap if you've picked it up, upside down.
You can also program it to double tap to wake up the screen, which is something I always like.
In terms of some of the hardware, you've got a 13 megapixel camera on the back with flash.
You've got a five megapixel camera on the front.
You also have a quad core processor.
Overall performance is right on par with the Moto G and actually the image quality is very decent for this phone.
Overall, this is a very likeable device and one that I would recommend looking into, especially if you're looking for either a small phone or a very inexpensive phone that performs well for its category.
