The first issue is you use snapchat the next issue is you didn't get a Samsung high class ssd maybe for your pc, now lets assume you meant to say class 10 Samsung sd card (that is the only variety they make ) it wouldn't speed it up as the sd card storage is substantially slower if any thing it would have worsened the problem unless you filled the internal storage and downloaded some nasty ram stealing app like any dodgy "ram clearing 10000x faster MLB init" app

This phone has so many "not responding" problems and I have to wait. Snapchat is nearly unusable. Facebook takes 10 seconds to load anything. Instagram lags more than my idol 3. I got a high class Samsung SSD card that helped with gaming but that's about it. I really want to stay with Cricket but I feel like the only phones worth buying there are $500+. And the VR is super gimmicky. Never works the way you want it to. Really grainy. When using VR or just playing 3D games, it feels like it's gonna catch on fire. Not a good phone.

Main reason battery on idol 4, i had to charge it twice a day.. Standby is pretty good, but SoC is around 3 hrs.. pretty lame, on z5 i get all day and charge it at night 23pm with 35% left

They are off the chain. Love my idol 4. and since this phone basically runs stock Android it's very fast with little to no lag. Some of the latest 3d games you might notice slowdowns but that doesn't make them unplayable. Great job Alcatel. And the phone design and materials is like a flagship
I have it 3 days now, amazed by the both speaker sound and 3.5mm.. better then most flaghships sound.. btw i have 3 gb ram model, smooth no lag at all, camera also pretty good with manual controls.. screen pretty sharp and bright... thumbs up for alcatel
I think overall the phone is good but 2 days ago it fell and even thoe it had a mask on it the screen broke just a little bit and now the touchscreen doesent work and the guarantee doesent cover that

All the reviews are solid to me. I had an iPhone and before that a galaxy. Idol 4 is by far the best. Especially for the price
Hey guys. Does anyone know if this phone plays nice with launcher e.g. Nova and apps like tasker? I read the idol 3 has to have Nova restarted every time you restart the phone? Thanks
I have this phone for about 7 months and i love it. It works fine i have no lag! My version has 3GB of ram and i am able to do everythink. I work and i play some games i have no complains. The camera is good for a midranger, the battery does well for about 2 days. If it had a 16 MP camera and 3000mah battery it would be perfect to me. I buy it in Portugal for 230.00Â€ so i belive it was a good deal. The quality of construction is great.
Danoc, 14 Oct 2016This phone is garbage. It doesn't lag unless you use Snapchat, Instagram or Facebook. Anythin... moreI've had this phone for 2 months now and it's the best mid range phone on the market. Hands down this phone is amazing. Everything about it works phenomenally. Anyone that says it lags or had any issues then they must have gotten a lemon. I can run 5-10 heavy apps at once with no problem at all. The camera, screen resolution, and quad speakers are incredible. The only other phone with a better screen would be a high-end like a Galaxy S7 but this phone blows the S7 speakers out of the water. And the screen on this is still an amazing resolution HD screen. Watching movies and playing games or anything multimedia is amazing. Like I said it's been 2 months and not one problem so if you purchase this phone and have any problems with lag or anything like that then just swap it out for another one and I guarantee you you won't have any problems with the next one.
I have had this phone for approx 5 months now, and hands down it is one of the best phones i have owned, i have had every phone you can name at some point or another as i am a mobile phone freak and consistently change/upgrade handsets but this phone has been a pleasure to use. I have the 3gb ram version. smooth performance, no issues since day 1.. speakers are probably the best ones i have used, everyone i have shown/compared speakers with agree its the best sounding, finely tuned speakers out there... Alcatel has done an amazing job on this phone, design is spot on!! slick, classy. only thing two things i would change about the phone is 1) storage should be 32GB, but no biggie as can use SD card.. and 2) the camera, increase to 16mp and it will be phenomenal to use, battery life: easily gets me through a whole day with use of wifi, gps, browsing, listening to music, calls etc. im a heavy user of my handset.
As i said.. one of the best phones i have had the pleasure of using this is my independent view of this phone from user experience, 5 months going and still going strong
