Interesting thing I discovered on the idol 4......we..idol4 owners... All know that the battery life is disapointing and heat problem is very frustrating! BUT!... if you turn on the battery saver from settings it will doubles your battery life and the phone will NOT get hot anymore! Of corse there are some minuses... You will no more receive messages on whatsapp messenger etc only when you wake up the screen and you can't stream music online while the saver is on... Oh... And you will have to get used with that orange bars..... For me is worth it!
Bought this phone as the reviews were raving about it. Not sure if i have a faulty handset but mine has terrible connection issues and call quality is awful. It also gets very hot when charging. Shame because it's a beautiful phone.

Please, does anyone know if Snapdragon 617, actually its Izat Gen8C is supporting location services of Glonass or even Beidou?

AnonD-577495, 28 Aug 2016Idol 4 or P9 Lite? What do you guys think? I'd say alcatel idol 4....i had both idol 3 and p8lite... Huawey are good phones but after few months start to lag very awefull... And the marshmallow update camed to alcatel 2 months earlier. Now i have the idol 4 and i'm telling you:it's more than a simple good phone.... It's a great fun package!!! If u want a good phone get huawey... If u want a lot of fun get idol 4!
Narra, 23 Aug 2016Buy it, its cheap but beautyful device, the camera is very good in good lighting but not on lo... moreYes, its true I thing this phone is so beautiful.I usually play 1/2 hours in a normal day (4 hours max). Thank you for replying, I think I'll buy it.
Now than.... Android authorithy tell us that the idol 4 has dragontrail on the back and gorilla glas 3 in front.... I used my idol 4 without protection for a month and.... Dragontrail wins! I have 3 little scratches on the front(probably because of dirt.. Dust) and no scratches on the back.... Now i have screen protection on the front and the back is naked... Still no scratches on the back! Warning: if u drop the phone on concrete, the glasses will rezist but the frame will have ugly hits!
