Habe a idol 3 went through 3 phones because of freeze up, was looking into getting a idol 4 but after these reviews think i will go elsewhere.
I have no complaints about this phone.. except for the front facing camera. I was hoping to use this as my B camera to record my face while i use my DSLR to record what i'm working on, however the front camera frame rate is all over the place and seems to change even during recording. I've gotten 14.25fps, 14.9501 fps, 14.985fps, 18.495fps, 21.588fps. and 29.083, as well as probably others, i just went through a bunch of videos and found those.
This makes it impossible to combine with other videos, as the audio and video is way out of sync and the amount that it's out of sync changes throughout the video :( sad..
Created a case with Alcatel tech support, will see if anything comes of it but i'm not holding out any hope.
Got it 3 days ago. First impression is satisfying except battery life. it must be at least 3000 mAh. it supports quick charge 2.0, but i have travel charger and it doesnt seem 2.0 charger. if you search qualcomm quick charge 2.0 technology you see volt and ampere values. these values are 9V and 2A (it means 18Watts). but in here we have 5V and 2A (10Watts) values. VR feature, my boom, JBL sound, waves maxx audio, reversibility is also good. But there are some negative properties especially buying accessory. Alcatel brand is old but as a smartphone manufacturer is quite new. You cant find screen protector and case easily. Matrix Flip Case for Alcatel Idol 4 case is very good but espensive. you can buy on amazone only. Overall this smartphone is very good for this price group. But you may some expectations like 16Mp camera, amoled screeen, 32Gb rom at least and
android 7.0 Nougat instead of Marshmallow.

KK, 28 Jan 2017If I remove micro ad card, so, the problem will be solve.try to solve with ''factory data reset'' but first remove the sd card , and to know that will erase all data from your phone and will start like a new.

Does anyone know if it's possible (or how to) drag and drop photos in the gallery or to make a new album? I only seem to be able to do it via the pc and it's very frustrating. Some info would be appreciated.
Sitius, 21 Jan 2017O had the same issue, it was the micro sd cardIf I remove micro ad card, so, the problem will be solve.
I like the phone. Battery life could be better. Does anyone have a problem with not being able to hear when someone calls while your already on the phone (call waiting beep)? I have tried everything but I still miss calls

Emojis..... Sad face, sad face, sad face! And over heats now and then... Other then that love this phone!
Got this phone 2 weeks ago. Like it so far, very fast and good for everyday things. One issue I have is it overheats sometimes unexpectedly, but restarting it helps with that. Otherwise, so far so good.

Hi guys I had the Alcatel Idol 4 phone bought for me as a Christmas present but since I have started using it I have found out that when I go into settings I can't open the data usage setting the phone goes black on the screen and I get this message the settings are not responding. I took the phone in to Vodafone to see if they could help me sort it out but got no joy from them.anybody else got the same problem with their phone and if so how did you get the problem sorted out.

I'm happy with my Alcatel Idol 4 anyways,i see plenty of people given out about this device and it's battery life. It all depends on the user really, if you're an average user like me, you will get a full day and half out of this phone. The phone is fast and snappy,really impressive. Great build, it has a fantastic display and great sound quality from the speakers, probably the best sounding speakers i heard from a budget pbone. I highly recommend getting a good protective case for this device, as the phone is slippery in the hand and vulnerable to light scratches as the back and front is made of gorilla glass 3. I see people complaining about the phone overheating. It has quick charging and if you use this device while it's on a quick charge,it will slightly heat up. High quality gaming and watching high quality videos for a long period of time, yes I'll say it will heat up pretty quickly, but nothing to be worried about. If anyone is considering getting the Idol 4, you won't be disappointed. This is the best phone i purchased anyways and i love it...
