OneTouch Idol 3 review: How good can a US$250 smartphone be?

JR Raphael | April 28, 2015
That's US$250 outright, with no contracts, commitments or obligations to pay inflated monthly bills for the next two years.

I'd be remiss not to mention that at $250, the Idol 3 is dangerously close to the price of the $298 OnePlus One — an unlocked phone that manages to pack flagship-caliber hardware into an unusually affordable package (and that, following months of an invite-only ordering system, is actually now available for anyone to buy). For a difference of $48, it's impossible not to at least mull over that next-tier option.

The OnePlus One is an outlier, however — and the OneTouch Idol 3 really does deliver an awful lot of bang for the buck. If you're looking for an impressive midrange smartphone at an affordable price, Alcatel's latest offering is definitely one you'll want to consider.
