Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 239.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Phone for price I bought this phone a year ago and it's one of the best phone's I've ever owned. The only problem with this phone is that it has to stay in a case for life + have tempered glass. The screen breaks very easily. The sensor is placed right under the glass so if the screen breaks, the touch breaks as well. So, technically this is my second Alcatel onetouch idol 3. However, I love it! I love the size of the phone. I love the storage. I love the sound! The sound quality is great, like super great! Camera is pretty decent. This phone has virtualy no glitches. It always works. I don't have a problem with my apps not responding. This phone works just fine and I love it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the money you pay for it I bought this phone in October of 2016. The first six months were fine. Then it started playing up. The "System UI not responding" started popping up, it began to turn itself off, it would freeze when I would try to type. It also has trouble reading my SD card and made it appear that it had deleted all of my photos and videos off my phone. Half the time it doesn't notify me for text messages. Or any other notifications for that matter. Its not worth the amount I paid for it and I would not recommend this phone or this brand to anyone. I have had a couple friends who had alcatels who had the same type of problems. This is a very low end phone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from MUCH BETTER THAN ALCATEL 4!!! Out of all the Cricket phones I've owned, this would be my #1 choice. I loooove the dual speakers! My kids complain that they can hear my phone across the house in the other room even when I'm behind closed doors. I enjoy listening to music off this phone. The overall quality is awesome and I think this phone sounds better than the Galaxy S phones anyway! Only trouble I had was the keyboard malfunctioned every once in a while but it was tolerable. Every phone has its glitches, you just got to figure out what you can and can't tolerate. First chance i get, I'm coming back to this phone! I hope they never discontinue it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice Phone but comes with preinstalled malware I really liked this phone when I first purchased it. The built in so-called Antivirus cannot be removed and once this so-called antivirus updates itself, it updates several other programs and installs programs plagued with ads that you cannot remove. The built in antivirus will also give you false warning about your phone being infected to try to get you to install more malware and adware. The built in software also tracks and steals all your information you have on the phone and sells this information to third parties to generate revenue. YOU CANNOT REMOVE THE MALWARE preinstalled with the phone. It is not adware, it is malware.
