Deal Details

Last Edited by ygb September 18, 2016 at 10:26 AM
Best Buy online has the Sony Xperia C4 and Alcatel Onetouch Idol 3 smartphone for $149.99 plus tax.

Both these phones are unlocked, and have 5.5 FHD screens, 2gb ram, 16gb storage, 13mp camera.

Do your research and see if these phones sound like a deal to you.

Sony deal is dead but Alcatel Idol 3 is now $139.99



Sony [bestbuy.com] - DEAD

Alcatel [bestbuy.com]


In this [manilashaker.com] comparison between the SonyC4 and the C5 from last weeks deal, the C4 wins in the screen and speaker categories. The conclusion is that they are both pretty similar.

The Idol 3 5.5" was replaced by the more expensive Idol 4s 5.5", not the 5.2" Idol 4 (base model) you're referring to. The Idol 4 5.2" actually replaced the $120 Idol 3 4.7".

This is a still a very good value at $150. Many of the past performance issues have been noticeably reduced by the Marshmallow update.

While that could definitely be true, here are some things to think about:

Since the Idol 4 is the successor to the Idol 3 4.7 while the 4s is the true heir to the Idol 3 5.5, it turns out that both the 4 and the 3 5.5 phones are practically identical in the specs dept (besides the goggles )

The Idol 4 is only available in the U.S. locked to Cricket which subsidizes the phone in return. Can't get it unlocked for $200.

"Compatible with GSM carriers, including AT&T and T-Mobile. "

So I guess neither of them work with Verizon. Too bad.

love love love Sony Xperia phones. The form factor is flat. Picture are pretty good and battery life is seriously the selling point for me. I use the Xperia Z3 and get compliments all the time at work on how it looks.

I'm feeling hungry as well :p

Very sad that the new phones replacing the nexus line will be even more expensive :$

Yes, a used LG is better than those two phones.

I wouldn't. I had a G4 for about 14 months it started to boot loop. If it does not have a carrier logo on it LG will not fix it. Even if it does they send you a refurbished phone that many people complained had problems too.
