Everything you need to know about the Alcatel Idol 3

Get ready for an intuitive user experience from the Alcatel Idol 3. Not only does this intelligent device boast HiFi sound and two great cameras, it also features a fully rotatable display, meaning this handset is the smart choice whichever way you look at it.

We recommend enjoying your favourite media on the Idol 3’s stunning 5.5 inch HD screen. There’s also no need to think about which way you’re holding your phone when you pick it up, as the display is 100% reversible for a faster, easier response.

But it’s not all about great visuals. There’s also heavy-duty audio to match, thanks to powerful front facing speakers offering 3D HiFi sound for a truly immersive experience. You can even play DJ with ONETOUCH, which brings all your favourite tracks to one place for you to mix, synch and scratch.

Get the snaps you want every time, thanks to fast image stabilisation on the Idol 3’s 13 megapixel camera. There’s also an 8 megapixel front-facing lens, with super-high resolution and a wide angle view, so that no one is left out of your pin-sharp group selfie.

Also on board is an octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor, and a micro SD card so you can beef up your handset’s storage to an extra 128GB. With so many great features to shout about, the Idol 3 is an awesome handset, even when upside down.
