Snapdragon 617 isin't very good processor and i wondering if this phone don't lag after 1 or 2 years, are this phone good for games like: Modern Combat 5, badland,Need for speed most wanted, dead triger2, deer hunter?
Rama, 24 Jul 2016Hi, Huawei p9 lite good phone, maybe better then idol 4. It has better battery life, processor... moreBut the processor on the p9 lite isnt a snapdragon, it is an HiSilicon. Also the p9 lite does not have a gyroscope so if you want to play pokemon go you can not turn on the AR.

Idol 4 have it all + have stereo speakers and JBL headphones included and instead on Gorilla Glass, it have Dragontail, in front and rear. Huawei -s hardware is quite OK, but I don't like what they have done with the Android, the EMUI is terrible.
CPU is OK for me, phone heats sometimes, but they do all and it doesn't bother me.

It has better battery life, processor (Quad-core 2.0 GHz Cortex-A53 + quad-core 1.7 GHz Cortex-A53) new design of android Emotion UI 4.1. But Huawei p9 lite don't have gyroscope, wich mean you can't play vr games.
Nexus 5x have Corning Gorilla glass 3, good processor Snapdragon 808, Adreno 418 and fingerprint. Actually about the processor better phone is Huawei p9 lite
Which one should i pick - Nexus 5x or Idol 4? I don't have any specific requirements, though i like listening to music mainly through headphones. I mostly seek a good performance that could last me 2-3 years.
I heard about the lags in Nexus 5x and seeing that Idol 4 comes with 3 GB i am thinking of getting it (also the promise of good music quality is very tempting too), but there is overheating issue that Snapdragon 617 processor has (or at least i heard of that) and no Gorilla Glass on Idol 4 (?) (I am not sure about that).... Other similar phones in this price range like Moto G4 Plus or Huawei P9 lite come with 2 GB of RAM in my country. So what could be the best choice for me?
I really want to buy this phone... In my country it cost 299Â€ There's many other phones with good spec for 250, 300Â€ But i want this one because of packaging and desin... Snapdragon 615 isin't very good processor and i wondering if this phone don't lag after 1 or 2 years, are this phone good for games like: Modern Combat, Real racing 3, Nova?
Man... i really like this phone.. design and specs wise... hope it will come here in the philippines soon.
I have a question for everybody....enyoane tried nanofixit?i love the design of my idol4 but i hate cases and tempered glasses.they ruin the design of the phone...i'm thinking to try nanofixit front and back...what you say guys?
phones arena, 21 Jul 2016Can you make geekbench on this phone because i want to buy plsI don't care much about benchmark....antutu-46200....but in every day usage,after i disabled the animations of the screen i beat iphone 5s...idol 4 is faster in 80% tasks!
AnonD-563067, 21 Jul 2016How is the battery?I'd say, battery depends of phone usage. I prefer lighter phone and charges everywhere. And as I don't play games or listen music, just some messages, news, browsing, the battery is fine for me. Android 6 and Doze mode helps also a lot.

For those who wants to buy idol 4 i advise you to live it the way it come out of the box...you probably will receive an upgrade but just ignore it!on 6055k you will not have the fyuse app and cardboard option on youtube...but you will have a great sound and VR image...wich you will loose if you take the upgrade

I received last night an upgrade on the software...the phone still works great,the only news is fyuse app....but the sound in not as good as it was before!the speaker from the bottom of the phone is a litle bit louder than the one form the top and the surround it's no more so beautifull like it was before upgrade.....
Anyone received the same upgrade and has the same problem?
Just got this phone for $233 in Saudi Arabia, 6055K model with 3GB ram.
I was hesitant on this due to less than stellar experience with the Idol 3 5.5 I had which suffered overheating and extensive stuttering.
This phone is like night and day in terms of speed and heating despite the similar cpu. UI is smooth and heating while present is not as crippling as before.
Audio is great and nicely done in the bezels unlike HTC. Screen looms really nice and is responsive, and colors are rich without being too much. Camera is capable of decent shots but it loves using too high an iso level especially indoors so I tend to use manual and set the iso myself with better results. Battery life is good and complemented by quick charge, bear in mind it does not come with a quick charger but I used a third party one just fine. Mine came with a nice flip cover and clear plastic back.
Overall a nice and stylish phone, if you aren't too much a heavy gamer and a decent camera suffice check if out.
Anonymous, 11 Jul 2016I don't care about that anymore, because I've sent my Idol 4 and Idol 4S back to amazon. The p... moreIt's Android 6, not phone bug. Did You try Settings > Backup and reset > Network settings reset? Did You sent complaint to Alcatel? But true, Alcatel is not very often, if any, releasing updates. I didn't find anything about this issue in Russian forums, but users told, that in Airplane mode, isn't possible to enable wifi, unlike other phones allow. However, if Your issue is a known and global problem and Google have fixed (Nexus) it, and Idol 4 users starting yo complain, then Alcatel must also release some update. I will test mine, and complain to Alcatel and if no reply or update, then probably will sent back to Amazon also.
