This is a great phone...call quality perfect but alittle low on the receiving end...Signal strength is OK...phone is very fast in my opinion...Nova 3 runs perfect but it did lag once or twice but that was the first time I played it...over all not disappointed with performance so far...its alot better than I expected honestly...I have huge hands so one handed use on this is quite easy for me ...phone seems very well build its extremely light for the size...finally the the screen best I've ever seen...zero brightness is bright enough for me even in direct sun light the phones is still viewable at 0% Display brightness...I found this incredible For $675 XCD ($250 USD)...money well spent
Strontium, 09 Nov 2015You shouldn't be able to have WiFi on in aeroplane mode..!!!Check the other brands!!!
The only gripe I have with this phone is that the SAR value is quite high, nearly the maximum allowed by the FCC.
Airplane mode switches off all communications.
BUT, in airplane mode you can switch ON Wi-Fi, BT or NFC.
Many planes offer entertainment thru Wi-Fi, but there are other purposes to use flight mode, where calls are forbidden or you want to web-surf without being disturbed by incoming calls.
You just have to check the other brands!!! i.e., check this link:
AleksandarSto, 23 Oct 2015Are you having problems with loading videos on Instagram? Some videos won't load from time to ... morei have the same problem... i really like this phone but that is anoying...
Incessant bug (the touch stops working ...) Too light, it slips through your fingers but is not resistant. Too fragile. It is a plastic toy, you can even see the lights through the glass. It's junk.
Alcatel idol3 does not permit to switch Wi-Fi ON in airplane mode,
therefore you will not be able to access to any entertainment
in flights which offer it like movies, magazines,etc.
This functionality is also useful when you want to use wi-fi without
being disturbed with incoming calls.
This phone is a good phone but the camera is very terrible that you can't use it at night in darkness.
im really in need of this phone alcatel 5.5 idol,im being told that it is not in the market somebody direct me on the shop where to find it .in nairobi
Are you having problems with loading videos on Instagram? Some videos won't load from time to time, but some load perfectly.
