alcatel_onetouch_idol_3_jbl_earphones_TA

Off-contract phones are quite the craze this year. Companies are removing themselves from association with nasty carrier contracts to be more appealing to consumers. The Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3, which we reviewed in May, is among the finest off-contract phones on the market today. It has a vivid and bright display, consistent camera, and booming dual front-facing stereo speakers. What’s not to love? The build quality is solid, too, and the Idol 3 has Android 5.0.2 Lollipop behind a customer user interface that remains simple and follows the Material Design guidelines.

Right now, you can enter our contest to win an Idol 3!

So have you ever wanted to get a Nexus phone or tablet but the price turned you off? Then head over to Talk Android Deals because that’s where you can win both a Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 for free.
