I got this phone a few days ago and battery performance has been really really good, you might have a faulty battery. on sleep the phone dropped only 15% in 8 hours while i slept.
dropped 7% playing pokemon go for 30mins, general browsing it will drop maybe 10% in a hour
ShadowWarPT, 22 Aug 2016Pls I don't know if I will buy this phone because of the battery life. Do you thing the batter... moreI've had the Idol 4 for less than a week and battery life is terrible! Today charged it on 4 different occasions and I'm not a big gamer, mostly Facebook, email. The only saving grace is the quick charge 2.0 but I will probably be returning this phone.
hyena, 24 Sep 2016Why do you think the idol 3 is better ?its got the 615 chipset only 2gig ram and camera softwa... moreI'm not looking on a piece of paper! I'm looking at the both devices... I already switced back to idol 3.why is better? Let me count the ways:
1life battery. After 1,5 years idol3 has a life battery compared with idol4
26.0 upgrade on idol3 runs much smoother even with older procesor and only 2gigs of ram
3.most important... I have root on idol3. I don't have blotwares, unusefull apps.. I have fuul control of the device
4 smapdragon 615 on the idol3 never gets hot!
5wiewing anles of the screen are better...
6aldo the idol4 is much more beautyfull designed, with the idol3 I'm much more relaxed. I droped it hundred times and I wasn't affraid it will broke. Dosn't atract fingerprints. I don't have to put it in a case
7 the speakers. They don't have so much bass like idol4 but they are crisper, better balanced and with dolby atmos they have way better surround and stereophony.
8.cameras. Now, the idol4 has flas on front camera witch is useless... Back camera is a litle better but i'm not use a lot my phone for taken pictures...and...like i told you.. I HAVE ROOT! cyanogen camera app is much more fast and improve a lot pictures quality
You want more? I GOT MORE!
FOR ME.... IDOL3 RULES!

ProsperP, 23 Sep 2016I really want this phone but it is good?In my opinion, idol 3 5.5 was better. Idol 4 it's just more beautyfull designed. More quality builded
How does the Idol 4 compare to an iPhone 6? That's what I have now, but I'm thinking of changing to the Idol 4.
Help!!! Phone fell down then it is working but the screen has no light, meaning that i can barely see it as if it is completely dimmed.... any ideas? adjusting the brightness & factory resetting the phone didn't work.

Interesting thing I discovered on the idol 4......we..idol4 owners... All know that the battery life is disapointing and heat problem is very frustrating! BUT!... if you turn on the battery saver from settings it will doubles your battery life and the phone will NOT get hot anymore! Of corse there are some minuses... You will no more receive messages on whatsapp messenger etc only when you wake up the screen and you can't stream music online while the saver is on... Oh... And you will have to get used with that orange bars..... For me is worth it!
Bought this phone as the reviews were raving about it. Not sure if i have a faulty handset but mine has terrible connection issues and call quality is awful. It also gets very hot when charging. Shame because it's a beautiful phone.

"alcatel does not upgrade the mobiles"that what they say... Snob peoples! Idol 3 got MM two months befor huawey p9 and now the idol4 have the 2th upgrade in 3 months....
I was real iffy on getting this phone I have only been familiar with Samsung and iPhones, but I have had it for almost a week and I LOVE it I'm glad I made the choice to go with the idol4
