    Sporting a 4.7" screen, there is a smaller version of the Idol 3 coming out.

    From the blog: 4.7-inch version of the Alcatel IDOL 3 will be available in the US and Canada this Friday | Android Central

    Anybody interested?

    I'll admit I was until I saw the battery size.

    Good price, size and specs for a mid-range. The battery seems too small, yeah, but you never know. The first two Moto G came with a similar size and battery life was always good, specially the 1st generation. Maybe the Alcatel can manage to get around 4 hours SoT, we'll see.

    This model came to compete with the new Moto G. With a bigger battery that could have been a tough race, but right now I find the Motorola device a better choice.

    I am inclined to agree about the Moto G.

    This was confirmed to have NFC though unlike the new G. Also I asked about it having a Gyroscope or not. My new G cannot watch VR YouTube 360 which might be more useful later on.

    The speakers put this over the G IMO.

    I just hope it is as fluid as the G. But yeah Idol 3's speakers are fantastic. Not sure though I they are including the JBL ear buds with it.

    Other than price and wanting a smaller phone, there's no reason to pick the 4.7" over the 5.5". You still get very good front facing speakers, a decent/good camera and near stock Android, but the smaller battery and screen won't be great for those that watch lots of videos.

    According to GSM Arena, the 4.7" is supposed to come with the same JBL earbuds.

    Here in the uk the 4.7 has been out for a while and my wife has one and loves it, especially the speakers. It did come with JBL ear buds which are great. I have the 5.5 which is great too!
