My opinion, Don't Buy This Idol 4, durability no good. For 2 weeks my phone just went blank power was on. Went to authorized retailer to file a claim for the phone, by the way I purchased a insurance for the phone coz if anything happen to it I will get a new phone. guess what you have to pay a deductible for the new phone $$$75$$$.That's option no.1. Now option no.2 called the warranty dept. again theirs two option, 1. have to send the phone to be inspected for any damage. Remedy is repair or new. But insurance will kick in for new phone so again you have to pay a deductible $$$. 2.you have to pay/deposit for the new phone out of the pocket before they inspect the phone. you get the phone in 1 business day. if the phone is defective they refund you your deposit. But if they found your phone for any damages, will insurance will kick in $$$ deductible. Waste of money and time.
i buyed this puhone 10 months ago now i can't charge it anymore this sucks!
Hi has anyone in the uk had network signal reception problems with Idol 4 ?
This phone suck!!! I have it for 2 months, battery is almost dead,doesn't charging anymore, network fall down all time, sound is to low and after min or two using it, it is worming well so can't even hold with you's hands! At the beginning it was good to charge your battery for 20-30 min, but now i need 6-7 hours for charging Don't buy this piece of shit!!!

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

Someone must of sold you a lemon. 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.
