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

AnonD-597528, 14 Oct 2016This phone is garbage. It doesn't lag unless you use Snapchat, Instagram or Facebook. Anythin... moreI'm coming from a ZTE 'Grand X Max' the Alcatel isn't the best smart phone I've ever had but for the price it has a great front back camera 8/13mgpx plus the display super crisp and add in the free VR goggles(compatible with Google cardboard), for the price...I challenge anyone to find a better phone on the market right now.

Battery life hasn't really been an issue for me cuz this phone charges up very quickly. very happy with my purchase
So, I did a promo with Alcatel for Cricket last week for the OTW (one's to watch) tour. And we were promoting and also gave away a FREE IDOL 4 phone w/the VR goggles along with backstage passes that night. I literally couldn't keep my hands off of this phone or thinking about it since. BTW I'm coming from the LG Stylo 2. 3 weeks in and the very 1st day it kept crashing on me.
*I first enjoyed the feel of it. The gorilla glass is nice but not sure of the dropage damage.
*The 8mp front camera is juuust right especially in dark places. ( Not that I'm in them often, don't ask me how I know.)
*I love swipe, the keyboard moves pretty swiftly and accurate.
*Good processor! Takes 3 seconds MAX(I counted) for each app to open.
*The fact that there are speakers on the front AND back top to bottom.....(c'mon now)
*AMD last VR goggles.....
I paid $100 bones, $116 of you count tax.
FOR THIS PRICE THIS PHONE IS PRETTY GRAND!
I m also from KSA
PLZ Let me know about its cam and BTW did they give u JBL headphones as free or something else

This phone is garbage. It doesn't lag unless you use Snapchat, Instagram or Facebook. Anything that stresses the phone shuts it right down. It's so long I hesitate to call it lag. It's worse than that, it's complete stoppage for 10 to 20 seconds at a time. Had a galaxy s4 before this and it was way better. So basically this phone can't keep up with a phone from 2013. I honestly don't know where the good reviews are coming from. Did you upgrade from a Razr? Something from 1999? It has good speakers and is a good phone. So was my old Nokia brick phone that played snake. This thing is just terrible. Will never but from alcatel again. Very unhappy and kind of pissed at all the good reviews that people must have been paid to leave. I am either going to sell this to some unsuspecting sucker who read all the good reviews on it, or give it to my 2 year old niece as a toy. Any older and she would know it was crap.
I have had this phone for a few weeks now (Cricket USA) and all in all its a good phone, even after switching from an ASUS Zenfone 2 can you imagine. I have 2 issues with it though.
1. Battery life when using GPS is very bad, now i know GPS sucks battery life but i went from 64% to 10% in like 30 mins using GPS. Needless to say this is very unusual and alarming. Faulty unit???
2. The screen, once in a long while, freezes. The menu buttons work but the rest of the screen is unresponsive. After like 60 secs it comes back no issue and the phone works fine. This has now happened twice but its not a big issue so far.
please help i have idol 4 but i broke screen touch
can anyone help me how to open the phone because its dificult
Hello. I got this phone version 6055k Europe with 3gb ram, from a month and from now I can say that is a really good deal, honestly. The display is very bright, accurate and colors are awsome. Both cameras are doing a great job, build quality is with strong aluminium and glass, I droped him twice and not even a scratch. The phone does not lag, restart or anything like this. Battery charging time is about one hour and 50 minutes and last one and a half day with moderate usage. I recommend it for those who wants a awsome looking phone and a good device for a good price.
The truth about Alcatel idol 4. Do not expect big things from the Alcatel idol 4.I bought this phone to replace my now old one plus one. To my dismay,The Alcatel idol 4 isn't responsive. The frame rate is barely passable. If this company is trying to make waves in the tech realm then I suggest making a phone that power users can stand by when they suggest the brand to a friend. If you're not a power user, this phone might be ... (Hesitent to say- but maybe)'Okay'. My OLD 'one plus one' has much better response,framerate and overall appeal. I'm not impressed and in a week or 2 will replace this with something that can keep up. I would not recommend this phone unless you're desperate for something cheap.
User from KSA. I bought this phone in JarirBookStore-Khobar-KSA...since July. And so far it gives me great deal. I love this phone.
