Alcatel Idol 3 (4.7) £72 in-store O2

Found 27th Jul 2016
Saw this in my local store. PAYG price of £72.
Pretty good for a budget phone. 4.7" inch screen (same as iphone 6) for those who don't want a huge phone. 1.5mb of ram, so 0.5 more than most budget phones, and really good JBL dual speakers.

This handset only includes 8GB storage, which isn't really enough in 2016.

However, this handset actually has a 16GB storage chip, but Alcatel has disabled 8GB of it via software. They have done this in order to sell an almost identical 16GB Dual-SIM model for more money.

You can follow some simple steps at XDA here to re-partition the internal storage to get an additional 8GB of storage space.

Also the phone has a flip-screen feature. If you receive a call and pick the phone up "the wrong way", the screen flips to the correct way.

Second this. Is it sim unlocked? And if not, any way of unlocking it? I checked eBay and there are no sellers which provide this service...

This looks nice. I have been looking for an affordable, *thin and light*, 4.7" phone since my Huawei G6 was stolen last year.

Any other phones currently for that Bill? Unfortunately Huawei seem to have abandoned those of us who don't want a 5" phone or bigger...
