Alcatel doesn't UPDATE, so your stuck with what you get. Most Alcatel is junk. This phone could be different, but beware.. Research Alcatel other phones in last year..
I think the reported LTE bands are incomplete. Alcatel's site shows:
LTE Bands:B 2/4/5/7/12/17
I just purchased the Idol 3 (5.5) for a low $199 USD directly from Alcatel's website.
Is it real or not??? And are we gonna see all these specifications they are talking about??? And when will it be available in the uk?? Or even online purchase???

Alcatel needs to put a 2.0GHZ quad core and 1.5 GHz quad core and an adreno 430 for the best case, or maybe an adreno 420. Price it at 450-500 usd and a LOT of people will buy it and it could top the antutu charts.
The idol mini and idol/idol ultra were a flop, I owned the mini, had huge slowdowns due to the mediatek chip. Idol 2 was better with the qualcomm chip, idol 3 has stereo speakers. I currently have the E8 So the idol 4 might be a compelling option for me when I need a new phone.
They say it'll be available for online purchase at amazon, i hope they make it very soon, can't wait any longer
