Doubt It, 21 Jun 2016I am confused as to why this phone is not at most 5.0" Why sacrifice single-handed usability j... moreWhen I had 4,7", after a while it felt small, so I bought 5", then thought, that maybe 5,5" is better, but was not, way too big. So now I'm gonna try Idol 4 & 5,2". But true, no idea, why 5,2" size was developed. 5" is enough, seems 5,2" is just a marketing ( size does matter) trick:).
I am confused as to why this phone is not at most 5.0" Why sacrifice single-handed usability just to add a couple more inches? That makes ZERO sense. Who is going to find use for the extra width? I know people say that 2 inches is not a big difference, but people have to understand that I stand by my limits, because phones have been pushing the boundaries for screen size every year and my hands are not going to grow bigger to accommodate for that.
The Alcatel Idol Touch 3 was a great phone, but unfortunately, I did not purchase the 4.7 phone because it had too low of RAM and too small a battery. Unfortunate.
Idol 4 and Idol 4S are on sale right now! Every single dealer here in Germany could offer these two models. Amazon, Saturn, Media Markt - just a few examples. ;)
They moved the release to Q3, waiting for this phone as for that price it look like good combo. I have the Idol 3 4.7 and its great phone. That reversible feature is really catchy.
Does anyone know when the 4 can be on sale?
I have the moto g 3rd generation and I was planning on getting the moto g4 Plus right after.
I see this phone and I'm interested in it, but..
I bought my friend the idol 3 and the call quality is terrible.
If a cell phone doesn't have good call quality then I have no use for it.
I think that's ONE THING all cell phones should get right.
I read reviews that others had problems with the call quality also.
Also if I get the moto G4 plus I'd get updates.
Android N looks awesome and I really want that update.
If the idol 4 doesn't fix it's call quality then I'm definitely sticking with moto.
Alcatel finally updated their site to actually show the idol 4 better, but it's taking forever for it to release.
Gideon, 19 May 2016299,- and 449 Euro449 Euro , I thing it would be the 4s version
They have waited too long to make it available. 299 euros will be expensive, considering that future midrange phones will feature a more power efficient Snapdragon 625, causing less overheating, longer power on battery times, and better gpu (Adreno 506). Moto G4 is 269 euros with a larger screen and battery, featuring the same snapdragon 617. This phone should have been available in April...now it's just too late.
Dehar, 17 May 2016hi can you tell me how much will cost 4? and 4s299,- and 449 Euro

It doesn't have the bands for US customers. I wish it did though because I love the size and the look. The Idol 4 has all the bands for GSM carriers in the US.
Hi :), 28 Mar 2016This or the Xiaomi Mi 4s? Having a hard time choosing. I like the 5" screen of the Xiaomi Mi 4... moreGet Xiaomi Mi 4s instead, You will not regret it cause it will get software update often and my brother is currently using it :)
