Have you been looking forward to buy Alcatel Idol 3? Now you have two choices – Idol 3 5.5 and Idol 3 4.7. Read on to know which one suits your requirements and whether you should buy it.

Alcatel’s 5.5-inch Idol 3 is a well-known product. The company has now launched its younger sibling for people who cannot afford the 5.5-inch version. In short, new Idol 3 is nothing more, or should we say, nothing less than the high-quality old Idol 3 phone.


When the price comes down, the company has to cut down the specifications that they can afford to offer only to high-end phones. That does not mean the phone is not good enough. People who buy mid-range phones are usually the ones who do not need the specifications and features that are present in the expensive models.

What’s the difference between Idol 3 5.5 inch and 4.7 inch?

The smaller version has a less powerful CPU and less RAM. Apart from these specs, both the models are identical. The company’s only motive behind the 4.7 inch Idol 3 is to have a smartphone for people who are not comfortable handling larger phones.

The construction of both the phones is almost the same, with nothing great about the looks. We have better-looking smartphones in the market. Alcaltel’s Idol 3 has a satin, plastic back.

We must not forget to mention that even though the size is smaller, and the price has gone down, the quality of this phone has not gone down. If you have been wanting to buy Alcatel Idol 3 5.5, but could not due to its price or size, then Idol 3 4.7 is for you.
