When I was recently contacted to do an ALCATEL ONETOUCH Idol 3 Phone and Watch review, it couldn’t have come at a better time. After heavy almost daily debates about the benefits of android smartphones over iPhones with my boyfriend, I was ready to take the leap. My guy is a technology nut and pretty much updates to every new phone that comes on the market, from android to iPhone and back to android again. Reviewing the ALCATEL ONETOUCH provided me with the perfect opportunity to see if a switch to an android was for me. I’ve been living unlocked with the ALCATEL ONETOUCH Idol 3 phone and smartwatch for about a month and I love it. I have a few criteria when it comes to phones: affordability, customization and an excellent camera (I am a blogger after all)! This phone exceeded my expectations and my technology nut boyfriend’s as well, who spent a good amount of time walking me through the basics of using the smartwatch in conjunction with the phone.
The DEETS on ALCATEL ONETOUCH Idol 3
After one payment of $249 the phone is yours and it’s unlocked and you’re free to go to any carrier! That’s the great thing about this phone…you #LiveUnlocked. In addition to being able to go to any carrier you can also travel internationally with this phone and avoid roaming fees by simply changing your SIM card! This came in pretty handy on my recent jaunt to Mexico. The awesome camera is 13MP and has a Sony IMX sensor making for crisp and perfect photos especially for instagram! The adaptive orientation is one of my favorite things about this phone. The ALCATEL ONETOUCH has the first ever fully reversible interface meaning any which way you turn the phone it orientates to right side up, even if the phone is upside down! (Pretty rad right!) It’s a sexy phone! It’s sleek and easy to hold with a large crisp and clear screen. It’s also the perfect size.
The DEETS on ALCATEL ONETOUCH Watch
I’ve always wanted a smartwatch. How cool is it to check your wrist for text messages instead of having to dig in your bag for your phone?!?
I love the actual look of the watch. The face is the perfect size and its customizable to your wrist size. It’s pretty cool that you can charge it by plugging it into your laptop USB port as well with up to 5 days battery life depending on use. The watch is customizable with different faces or photos of your choosing, so matching your outfit will never be an issue. You can also keep up with your fitness goals being that the watch monitors heart rate, steps taken and how many calories you’ve burned. For those obsessed with taking selfies like I am, you can shake your wrist to activate camera control and get the perfect selfie without having to press a button! The ALCATEL ONETOUCH watch can also be paired with any android or apple phone to control music, receive notifications and more!

What an awesome giveaway! To me to #LiveUnlocked means living my life by my own terms and rules. In today’s society it’s so easy to get caught up doing what everyone else is doing, wearing what everyone else is wearing and thinking how everyone else is thinking. Social media just amplifies this notion. I like to look at life in a grander scale and do things that motivate and nurture my soul.
To live unlocked means freedom to dream big!
This phone is perfect for me ’cause #LivingUnlocked isn’t what I’m used to yet. I’ll like to try that and see what it’s like. I’m more of a rule following girl but I kinda love it when people are free. Getting this phone, i’ll be able to get apps and other things my current non- android smartphone has which would be super cool.
#LiveUnlocked means we are in charge of our own lives. We have the freedom to choice. Great giveaway!
Living unlocked means having the freedom to change it up how I want, when I want.
#LiveUnlocked Means being able to make my own choices when I want!
#LiveUnlocked means to have the power of the world in your fingertips.
#LivingUnlocked to me means to live OPEN. I am open to choices, successes, ideas, and failure (and learning from them all). And while some opportunities may not available to me now, I am still open and optimistic about other doors that will open.
btw – Thanks so much for the giveaway. I’ve been following you since I first discovered you on social media and love your style! Have a great week 🙂
Living unlocked means being free to choose.
Living unlocked means that I get to choose who, what, where, and how I’m going to live my life! #OnlyTheBest
Hmm, #livingUnlocked… Well, when you unlock a door, the door opens. The world of freedom and possibility awaits you, as you become the master of your fate. Living unlocked is a life deliberately created by you, for you, parallel to the vision that you’ve always carried with you, just like our phones. Our phones represent a life, created, through our distinct personalities and tastes. A phone, especially an unlocked phone, gives a potent and honest glimpse into the inner life of someone and their habits. Living unlocked IS living with pure authenticity, with spirited and unbridled passion. A life lived without apologies.
#LiveUnlocked is to have the freedom of choice
