Alcatel OneTouch IDOL 3C

Description

The Idol 3C is a slight variation of the Idol 3, the new handset comes in a number of different-colored, interchangeable backs. In fact, that seems to be the only difference. The Idol 3C has a couple of unique quirks to it – its top and bottom are completely symmetrical and its UI is programmed to allow upside down view and even upside down calls, as the stereo speakers can be reassigned between microphone and earpiece freely. So, technically, the phone doesn't “really” have a top and bottom side. Under the hood, the Idol 3C packs a 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 615, clocked at 1.5 GHz and bearing the Adreno 405 GPU, 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of internal storage, expandable via microSD up to 128 GB. For a main camera, the phone rocks a 13 MP sensor with an aperture of F2.0, while on the front, it has an 8MP snapper – pretty much the same stats as the Idol 3.
