The Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 (4.7) has a portable, compact size and delivers solid performance across the board for a budget price. Hardware and software extras add value
Stumbling blocks include its harder-to-use camera app and won't work on every global carrier
The 4.7-inch version of Alcatel's OneTouch Idol 3 is smaller and slightly weaker-of-hardware than the 5.5-inch budget powerhouse that knocked our socks off for its price category -- it costs $180 in the US, about £150 in the UK and $299 in Australia. St...

Power button placement isn't the most ideal. I'd be okay with it being on the left side if it was a bit further down. Closer to the middle of the phone. Which would also make it better for when you use it upside down, The Idol 3 4.7 isn't running the late...
