This week is just full of good deals. Yesterday brought in the introduction of a great price on the Moto G (3rd Gen), and today is bringing us yet another deal, though on products from another manufacturer. The Alcatel Idol 3 is having a great sale on Amazon today, and even better is that both the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models are on sale. Amazon has the 4.7-inch Idol 3 listed for $30 off regular price, down to $169.99. The 5.5-inch Idol 3 has an even larger price cut, with $100 knocked off to bring the price down to $179.99.
Alacatel’s 4.7-inch Idol 3 brings in a 720p IPS display, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of storage plus microSD card slot, 13-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 2000mAh battery, 4G LTE support for GSM networks and Android Lollipop.
The larger 5.5-inch model packs a 1080p display, 1.5GHz + 1GHz octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage plus microSD card, 13-megapixel rear camera, 8-megapixel front-facing camera, 2910mAh battery, 4G LTE support for GSM networks and Android Lollipop.
Both size options also feature dual front-facing stereo speakers that are designed by JBL. Additionally, the design of the front of the phone is essentially symmetrical, and Alcatel has designed it so that it can be used in any orientation, even while making calls.
While the Alcatel Idol 4 was just announced, the Idol 3 is still a great device and packs in serious bang for your buck, especially at this incredibly low price. As long as you’re not looking for top-of-the-line flagship specs, you should be very happy with the Idol 3.
