Heads up. If you already use, Cricket they have it for $129.99. Additionally, if you transfer to Cricket you'll save an additional $20. Unfortunately it's locked to Cricket (even other AT&T network providers are blocked) until you keep service with them for, I believe, 6 months.

Fantastic cost to value even at this price. Very nice display, excellent battery life and performance and dual front facing speakers that put my LG phones to shame. Although a bit slow on Alcatel's part, a Marshmallow upgrade has been confirmed for the summer months.

Keep in mind too that the Idol 4 has been announced and looks to be a quality upgrade even though it won't reach this price for some time.

Thumbs up and highly recommended! Price match at Staples to save an additional $8 with their current 110% price match offer.

Not trying to spy but their profile shows they comment in tons of smartphone threads. So my guess is laziness. Doesn't it take longer to type a sentence and post to SD than it does to quickly look at the product page with your own two eyeballs? I'm always confused with posts like this on SD as it seems so counter-intuitive.

Huh. I actually preferred the Idol 3 to the Nexus 6. Though I now have a Moto X Pure Edition which I prefer to both.

Caution for buyers, I have this and it gets really slow over the time. It may have to do with Android 5.0 and still no word from Alcatel on when it will be updated to 5.1 or 6.0. Don't buy if you are even a medium user, this phone will disappoint you. Worst company when it comes to updates.
