Until recently, when someone spoke to us of the Alcatel brand the first thing we had to head were terminals with doubtful quality finishes, components that left too much room for hope and, ultimately, a brand without too many items that help him stand out from the competition and gain a foothold in an increasingly competitive market.
But with the OneTouch Idol 3, Alcatel finally gives it a twist to your catalog proposing a mobile phone with a sober and elegant design with two 4.7 and 5.5-inch models that include signed by Snapdragon Qualcomm processor, a promising JBL speaker system, and the 13 megapixel Sony IMX214 (Exmor BSI) sensor.
A successful design
On the front we have a mobile which reduces to the maximum size, which is just a few millimeters higher than the LG G3 thanks to the successful decision of introducing in version of 5.5 inch a few frames as small as possible.
It has a symmetrical design with stereo speakers at the top and bottom, something that often could lead to problems when hit by taking the right mobile, but not what Idol 3 thank you still set that recognizes how you are holding the phone and automatically rotates the screen. Come on, that You can use it upside down, but when it comes to try seemed not that screen rotation system was too much fluid.
The back is finished in matte plastic with Gummy touch that prevents us to drain, and the sides we can see an elegant metallic chassis that it unfortunately a little lackluster to be topped with two light bands of bright silver plastic that, despite not being as cantosas as the S5 Galaxy edges, that show that the design could have been a little better.
Two sizes to avoid controversy
In recent months there has been much controversy with found perceptions of the lovers of great phones and those who believe that the perfect size for the screen are 4.7 inches. Apple put a solution to the problem by removing dOS versions with two sizes of the same mobile, something that Alcatel has also wanted to emulate, although it has not succeeded 100 percent.
And is that although both versions of the Idol 3 share aesthetics, the operating system Android 5.0.2 and some of your specifications, we also have key differences between the two. In this way, we will see that the 5.5 inch has FullHD resolution, 615 Snapdragon processor and 2.910 mAh battery, while the 4.7 inch has to comply with resolution 720 p, Snapdragon 410 and a battery of 2,000.
As we have our brothers of Engadget in the post in which he detailed us all its physical components, these two mobile phones will go on sale in late may or early June to priced at 199 and 249 euros, not bad considering the overreact in which rising prices of high-end.
