I have it 3 days now, amazed by the both speaker sound and 3.5mm.. better then most flaghships sound.. btw i have 3 gb ram model, smooth no lag at all, camera also pretty good with manual controls.. screen pretty sharp and bright... thumbs up for alcatel
I think overall the phone is good but 2 days ago it fell and even thoe it had a mask on it the screen broke just a little bit and now the touchscreen doesent work and the guarantee doesent cover that
Danoc, 14 Oct 2016This phone is garbage. It doesn't lag unless you use Snapchat, Instagram or Facebook. Anythin... moreI've had the phone 2 months. With no problems. Someone must of sold you a lemon. All the reviews are solid to me. I had an iPhone and before that a galaxy. Idol 4 is by far the best. Especially for the price
Hey guys. Does anyone know if this phone plays nice with launcher e.g. Nova and apps like tasker? I read the idol 3 has to have Nova restarted every time you restart the phone? Thanks
I have this phone for about 7 months and i love it. It works fine i have no lag! My version has 3GB of ram and i am able to do everythink. I work and i play some games i have no complains. The camera is good for a midranger, the battery does well for about 2 days. If it had a 16 MP camera and 3000mah battery it would be perfect to me. I buy it in Portugal for 230.00Â€ so i belive it was a good deal. The quality of construction is great.
Danoc, 14 Oct 2016This phone is garbage. It doesn't lag unless you use Snapchat, Instagram or Facebook. Anythin... moreI've had this phone for 2 months now and it's the best mid range phone on the market. Hands down this phone is amazing. Everything about it works phenomenally. Anyone that says it lags or had any issues then they must have gotten a lemon. I can run 5-10 heavy apps at once with no problem at all. The camera, screen resolution, and quad speakers are incredible. The only other phone with a better screen would be a high-end like a Galaxy S7 but this phone blows the S7 speakers out of the water. And the screen on this is still an amazing resolution HD screen. Watching movies and playing games or anything multimedia is amazing. Like I said it's been 2 months and not one problem so if you purchase this phone and have any problems with lag or anything like that then just swap it out for another one and I guarantee you you won't have any problems with the next one.
I have had this phone for approx 5 months now, and hands down it is one of the best phones i have owned, i have had every phone you can name at some point or another as i am a mobile phone freak and consistently change/upgrade handsets but this phone has been a pleasure to use. I have the 3gb ram version. smooth performance, no issues since day 1.. speakers are probably the best ones i have used, everyone i have shown/compared speakers with agree its the best sounding, finely tuned speakers out there... Alcatel has done an amazing job on this phone, design is spot on!! slick, classy. only thing two things i would change about the phone is 1) storage should be 32GB, but no biggie as can use SD card.. and 2) the camera, increase to 16mp and it will be phenomenal to use, battery life: easily gets me through a whole day with use of wifi, gps, browsing, listening to music, calls etc. im a heavy user of my handset.
As i said.. one of the best phones i have had the pleasure of using this is my independent view of this phone from user experience, 5 months going and still going strong
John, 21 Oct 2016I have a LG stylo 2, can you tell me pros and cons of the idol 4 compared to the stylo 2?Better screen faster processor, better build, dual speakers better support better wifi and the list goes on

Anythin... moreI'm coming from a ZTE 'Grand X Max' the Alcatel isn't the best smart phone I've ever had but for the price it has a great front back camera 8/13mgpx plus the display super crisp and add in the free VR goggles(compatible with Google cardboard), for the price...I challenge anyone to find a better phone on the market right now.

Battery life hasn't really been an issue for me cuz this phone charges up very quickly. very happy with my purchase
So, I did a promo with Alcatel for Cricket last week for the OTW (one's to watch) tour. And we were promoting and also gave away a FREE IDOL 4 phone w/the VR goggles along with backstage passes that night. I literally couldn't keep my hands off of this phone or thinking about it since. BTW I'm coming from the LG Stylo 2. 3 weeks in and the very 1st day it kept crashing on me.
*I first enjoyed the feel of it. The gorilla glass is nice but not sure of the dropage damage.
*The 8mp front camera is juuust right especially in dark places. ( Not that I'm in them often, don't ask me how I know.)
*I love swipe, the keyboard moves pretty swiftly and accurate.
*Good processor! Takes 3 seconds MAX(I counted) for each app to open.
*The fact that there are speakers on the front AND back top to bottom.....(c'mon now)
*AMD last VR goggles.....
I paid $100 bones, $116 of you count tax.
FOR THIS PRICE THIS PHONE IS PRETTY GRAND!
