I am from Pakistan and using Idol 4 since last 09 months. Overall this is good phone but there is one problem about the camera. Flash is not powerful, that's why camera is unable to take clear pictures in low light or after sun set. Secondly big problem is the unavailability of the accessories. No front protector, no back cover is available in any market.
I have the phone from september 2016. Pros, bright and clear display with true colours, best speakera from jbl, allmost pure android sowftware with regular corrections, built in materials verry good and shiny, battery last at least a day with medium to heavy usage and the camera is excellent in daylight. Negative:When heavy used, phone is overheating but the glass helps to restore the temperature, poor pictures in low light but if you approach the phone the dual blitz can handle good, no much cases on market and no VR apps development on the market.
6 months into using and I have a huge problem with battery drain from two days ago, I don't have a problem with freezing and heating, but battery just started to drain while locked, I click on power button to check the clock and I have - 20%, after few hours it's on 24%, and I am working, not using the phone... just horrible. My brightness is on low, always, because my eyes are watering from bright light. Screen time out is 2 minutes of inactivity. Second problem is Joy launcher that is pre-installed on my phone and it's not even compatible with this device, so not updating in Play Store... Ugh... Alcatel is using me, and I am so in love with sound quality and I am sad that I saved for this phone, and I have one huge nothing now, its not easy to change your phone in Serbia as you wish ...
My Idol 4 is great. The phone is overheating a lot but 50°C are acceptable from a phone in a tropical land. Performances are great for gaming, I wish had more than 16GB
I bought the phone and the first three months were great ! Now it freezes when I use the camera and it's always over heating . I'm one very unhappy customers .

Well my fiance got this phone because he didn't want to spend cash on a more expensive and plus free VR ... It worked for about 3 months and now the phone doesn't charge over 50% it's always over heated and very buggy it's sad... So we order a few iPhone 7 plus and called it quits with this phone
It was great for about half a year, but now it consistently crashes trying to run simple apps such as Facebook. Its extremely frustrating.
great deal works great and has plenty of good features I have had the phone nearly since it came out and haven't had any issues

Phone over heats and screen freezes constantly, reboots every 20 mins. They lure you in with the fee VR set but it's not worth it. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON IT.
4 months ago i bought this f.ck.ng phone and it has been rebooting about 2 days and i am still waiting for it open and looking for solutions and now i am here and problem is persist
Very good phone, incredible features, very acceptable cost - benefit, the ability to invert the screen and the excellent audio quality, are the most outstanding. Its 3 GB ram, make a high performance device. I highly recommend it. Additional value, includes VR lenses, give an incredible experience.
Bought this phone before deploying. Worked great at first. A month and a half into deployment and it's garbage. I take good care of it so it's not on my end. It heats up very fast, and frequently the touch screen stops working or doesn't work well. I have to restart it multiple(15+) times a day just so I can use it.
