I have been a big time HTC fan. I owned the M7,M8, and M9. But my love for the company died out after the M9.
So I was on the hunt for a new phone and stumbled on the Alcatel Idol 3.
It checked off about every box I was looking for.
* Front facing speakers
* Ability to Root
* Under $200
* Runs Android 5.0
This is the unboxing, I will make a second video a week after using it as my daily phone to tell you the results of my switch from HTC to Alcatel.
