Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3

The Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 is a sub-$300 Android smartphone, though it’s far from low-end. It has a solid battery life, vivid display, and a nearly clean Android install.

  • Pros

    • Excellent value
    • Vivid display
    • Long-lasting battery
    • Mostly clean take on Android
  • Cons

    • Average performance
    • Camera underwhelms in low-light settings
    • Parts of design feel cheap

Quick Take

The Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 is the best sub-$300 Android phone to date. Like the OnePlus One, Nexus 5, and Moto G before it, it's an encouraging step towards ending the neglect typically faced by the low end of the smartphone market.
