Alcatel Idol 3 4.7

A modern design, an impressive display and two great cameras. You won’t believe the price…

Alcatel Idol 3 is the first smartphone that works either way up. The interface just rotates with the handset, so it really doesn’t matter how you hold it.

It features a crisp 4.7-inch HD display, which presents the photos you take on its 13MP camera in fantastic detail. The same goes for the front-facing 5MP camera.

In addition, two powerful speakers on the front enhance your movies and music for a top experience.

This way or that

This is the first smartphone that’s ready to go whichever way you pick it up. There is no upside down. The interface rotates seamlessly so it’s ready to go however you hold it. You might find this especially useful when you’re admiring Alcatel Idol 3’s design from different angles, like its metallic casing and slim form.

Indoors or out

You’re not restricted to only enjoying Alcatel Idol 3’s HD display indoors. The quality of the 4.7-inch screen keeps it looking bright and brilliant even when you’re in the sun. Colours still look vibrant and contrast is impossible to miss. The experience is fantastic regardless of what you’re doing, be it web browsing, gaming or something a little more productive.

Scenery or selfie

You’re well equipped with two fantastic cameras, whenever you have your Alcatel Idol 3 with you. The main 13-megpixel unit, complete with Fast Face Focus and image stabilisation, takes quality shots, whether your subject’s a beautiful backdrop or a family BBQ. And the 5-megapixel front-camera is the perfect sidekick for your nights out and other selfie-worthy moments.

Listen or create

Idol 3’s two front-facing speakers deliver pretty powerful audio. They combine to produce 3D HiFi sound that takes you closer to the cinema experience. With JBL Clari-Fi onboard, the sound quality is truly impressive, too. And thanks to ONETOUCH Mix, you can finally act out your dream of being a top DJ, by mixing your own tracks and adding different effects to them to create your unique sound.
