Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 (5.5) — Review

Alcatel OneTouch have made a name on lower end hardware, the results have ranged from decent through to less than average.

LG G4 — Review

LG’s G4 is the third major smartphone launch this year, following on the heels of HTC’s One (M9) and Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge double attack.
