Alcatel Onetouch Idol 3: Good Allrounder

All good things come in threes also applies to Alcatel for the Alcatel onetouch Idol 3 is a successful Android Smartphone, which certainly takes his lovers. Here you read how it has struck in the practice test.



Elegant rewrites of the first impression of the idol 3 best: two chrome plastic strip running around the grip, anthracite-coloured housing. Also back is composed of plastic, but completely insensitive to scratches or fingerprints. The well processed housing with the recessed top and bottom stereo speakers featured at first touched immediately. Completely surprising you then look at the price tag: this Smartphone will cost just under €210. Actually a gate there is a 5.5-inch and the here tested 4.7 inches.

And also in the technical data, one gets the feeling, this Smartphone is worth his money: the sufficiently fast quad-core processor (Snapdragon 400, 1.2 ghz) with 1.4 GB RAM shows with everyday tasks no juddering or delays. You need to play demanding games like GTA 3 San Andreas but on average display quality, otherwise it stutters. There are around 11 GB of internal memory available which are however not extensible for apps and entertainment. Who installed bigger games, begins very quickly to delete unnecessary. The device contains two SIM cards in the micro-SIM format. The resolution of 1280 x 720 pixel resolution is on the diagonal of 4.7 inches in order. During normal use the difference to higher resolutions not striking, but very exact look. And even with side viewing the screen remains still visible. But at least then the color change is obvious: viewed directly from the front display has a slight blue tint, diagonally from the bottom it acts weak greenish and from above rather violet. While surfing that is not in the weight, but the videos and it can be slightly disturbing photos. Overall, the display is one but for the better in this price class. The new Android 5.0.1 and the LTE capability round off the package.

When a Smartphone to the 250 euro not much you expect, but hoped everything. You read through the data sheet, the odds are fairly good. After all, there’s a 13-megapixel camera back and a 5-megapixel camera front. And as long as it’s bright, photos succeed quite well: colors are strong, white balance succeeds quite well and the noise keeps within bounds. Low light noise increases dramatically and details disappear, but overall the camera provides usable images and shows what is possible in this price class.

Daily test


What sounds great in the advertising brochure, has in reality so its hook: Alcatel claims it could hold the phone as you wanted, call is always possible because the idol 3 has top and bottom speakers and microphones. One can however not on both sides: use the buttons. Because you stay with a twist on the spot. So, one dislocated the finger if you want to adjust the volume. The Unlock button, however, doesn’t mind, because with a double tap on the screen, it wakes up the idol 3. A side-effect of turning: Music and videos you have stereo sound at full volume. The almost unchanged Android interface responds quickly and is very tidy. With a wipe from the homescreen from reaching the onetouch stream: messages, upcoming calendar entries and proposed apps are here. For something bolder use the black plastic comes behind the chrome plastic strips quickly evident.

Film ab!

American Idol? No, Alcatel Idol 3! This smartphone delivers plenty of performance at a fair price.

Conclusion: Alcatel Idol 3


Last year, Alcatel provided a foretaste of upcoming models with the Hero 2 already: the new Idol 3 (4.7 inch) is the so far balanced Alcatel Smartphone. The camera is for your class well and quite enough, battery life and speed, leave no wishes unfulfilled and the stereo speakers sound very loud. In this price segment, the idol 3 is almost an exception. However, it has also its hook: as a microsd card slot is missing and the mouldings in chrome finish look unsightly fast. The alternative to the Alcatel onetouch Idol 3 is the Motorola Moto G (3rd generation) with memory card slot.

The dual-SIM version has 16 GB of internal memory and is not expandable. Then there is not a single SIM version of the instead of the second SIM card micro SD card included. Thus, the memory can be expanded up to 128 GB.

The same is true for the 5.5 inch Variant. Here, the single-SIM version has then 16 GB and the 32 GB dual SIM.
