Alcatel Idol 3 hands-on, first impressions

Posted on: September 1, 2015

Regarded as one of the best smartphones unveiled in this year's CES, the Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 is positioned to be a mid-range multimedia device. The Idol 3 has two versions -- a smaller 4.7-inch handset and a bigger 5.5-inch unit that is powered by a Snapdragon 615 chip. The Idol 3 comes with some pretty interesting features that we have not seen before in any Android phone. The unit is thin and sleek, measuring only 7.4mm on the side. For a 5.5-inch smartphone, the Idol 3 is also very lightweight -- just 141 grams compared to some of is…

One of the more objective ways to determine the performance of smartphones is by running them thru synthetic benchmarks. After going thru hundreds of handsets in the last couple of years and using Antutu as one of our primary tools, we thought of putting them down into a chart as basis for comparison with other handsets we will review in the future. This chart is not yet final as we gather more test results from a few more handsets but, for the meantime, we're posting it already as we add more data. Note: We have not have time to gain…

Scheduled to be launched in the Philippines next week, the Asus Zenfone Selfie takes the term selfie to the center of the picture -- that is, a 13-megapixel front-facing camera to take that perfect selfie. To be clear though, Asus is not the first one to do such a feat. There have been others before it, most notably the HTC Desire EYE which also has a 13.1MP front-facing camera, f2.2 aperture and dual LED, dual-tone flash. The Zenfone Selfie basically has the same 13MP front camera with dual-tone flash and f/2.2 aperture. Asus packs it in the same Zenfone body,…

Motorola's presence in the Philippines has been a long time waiting so it somewhat surprising that they made another attempt this year. This time, it brought three of their more popular handsets, among them is the 2nd-generation Moto X. For many years, Moto fans only had access to the brand’s latest handset thru gray market channels or importing them directly from Hong Kong or the US. This year marks the first time in more than half a decade that Motorola handsets will be officially offered with customer support and warranty. The acquisition of the mobile company by Lenovo from Google…
