It is a little thing comes in mid range price which is very cool. It has front facing speakers which are lovable and getting minimized sound distortion. The phone is entirely made of plastic and doesn’t attract any fingerprints. It is very thin looking and very good looking piece. T has a special feature you can answer the call n any direction and talk in reverse or whatever you want regardless of the orientation. it just simply works better while taking calls in the middle of the sleep. Yippee, it is really nice. The user interface is pretty cool and works very smooth. But sometimes we a lagging and dropping in frames. But it is really not that bad. It has a little bit customizations. The display is very good and vibrant with accurate color reproduction.

Coming to the gaming zone I tried to play fire proof games which took a little more time to load. But played well with graphics. Asphalt 8 is running pretty well. Powerboard benchmark test gives a score of overall 798, system 1088, memory 828, graphics 756 and web 596 which is par to Moto G. The camera quality is ok and sometimes it takes pretty decent photos and sometimes not. But we are happy with the camera performance. It is not the best camera but it is ok. But the video recording is quite good. I can say the performance of the device is really impressive.


Alcatel Idol 3 is the best phone it may not be of flagship quality but it is good in terms. There is nothing else to worry about this spectacularly designed device. It is available at a price of Rs20,000/- It is not of affordable kind but gives a very good performance.
