Ahoy there, Internetland—you couldn’t seriously believe I’d let the Christmas season pass me by without putting out some sweet giveaways to celebrate the holidays, right? Though not as expansive—or admittedly, prepared—as the Techmas event at my buddy Zach’s site, I’ve partnered with a number of brands who have all sorts of things they’d love you to have to ring in the New Year!

The first gift good ol’ Case Cringle has for the good little girls and boys out in Internetland is the Alcatel onetouch Idol 3, a 5.5″ Android smartphone that can do just about everything other flagship phones can do, but at a fraction of the price!

But let’s get something straight from the drop—this phone is not impervious to gravity.

I first got my hands on the Idol 3 back in June when Citizen PR invited me to BMO Field so I could witness an announcement first-hand as Alcatel onetouch partnered with Toronto FC, and a Dwayne de Rosario Testimonial Match as icing on the cake!

It’s a cool little gadget—a far cry from the Idol 2S, their previous flagship phone which did little to impress me. But in a world where 64 GB is the new 32 and you can pack more into your phone than you can most computers, Alcatel onetouch unabashedly released a device to get themselves back in the game, and it is indeed sweet with all the options you’d expect from a premium phone in 2015!

“Live loud.
Live bright.
Live moments.
Live Idol 3.”

The Idol 3 definitely helped make for a great summer… being out and about more than I’d expected, the Idol 3 performed superbly — especially across international lines where I swapped the SIM card for one from Roam Mobility to run amok across Cincinnati in August! And with another device already managing the heavy lifting for my #BloggerLife, I largely wanted a phone with expandable memory (because I really wasn’t about having hundreds of gigs in micro SD cards sitting around doing nothing); great sound—which it covers with its JBL sound engine; and a large display for those odd occasions where I need to play Thomas & Friends to keep the kiddo entertained in the back seat.

It was pretty much everything I could ask for in a modern device… until a fateful October morning where I fished it out of my pocket after dropping Little Man off at daycare, and it slipped from my hand to the sidewalk below, no longer working by the time I poked and prodded at it soon thereafter.

I learned an important lesson that day — protect your hardware; anything can happen, and you don’t want to lose out on a device worth hundreds because you couldn’t spring a few bucks to keep it safe!

So all’s well that ends well—I was finally able to replace Sarah’s well-aged Galaxy SIII with a phone able to keep up with the growing demands of a technology-reliant generation; I happily discovered that Citizen PR hadn’t blacklisted me for accidentally wrecking some of their client merch; and I was able to kick off a Case Cringle Christmas with something pretty cool for all my readers out there!

To all those who enter, good luck! To all those who read and shared the post, thank you so much. And for those of you who’ve yet to join the party… 2016 will be a big year—better get on this ride while you still can!

Have yourselves an amazing weekend, and try not to battle too many shopping cart warriors—only a week left ’til Christmas!

Until the next,
