" Best smartphone of MWC 2016
Nominees: LG G5, Samsung Galaxy S7, Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, Xiaomi Mi 5 and Alcatel Idol 4S ". Agreed :)

The VR gear is subpar. The apps that come with it are nowhere near the quality of samsung. Basically it is an fancy google cardboard and I thought that cardboard worked much better.
I returned the phone because the EU version does not have a fingerprint sensor, which is a dealbreaker for me. I would have kept it otherwise.
Idol 4 S has 3.6 watt jbl speakers. I think Alcatel made a wrong move selling this with the VR headset and the JBL earphones instead of making it 299$ because ppl dont realise what they get for this price. Even at 400, its a better phone than axon 7, op3.... Compact, beautifull design, amazing screen an sound ( I read reviews about low nits, but in auto, it overides to more than 600 nits in direct sunlight, the best screen under sunlight I ever had).
Keep in mind the 820 need more battey and it costs only 20$ more.
The best for the price range. Period. Come from Asus zf2, had all brands, but this one its a keeper. Maybe the 820 would be the perfect processor for this,but 652 does the job. They can talk about oneplus 3, but this is a multimedia device. So compare the sound and image quality. This has even better speakers than all the current flagships, I cant put op3 on this race. Sweet gaming and videos. Thank god I dont take reviews too serious and prefer to test for myself.

I guess you have already tried Idol 4s , so would you tell us more about the good n bad points of it... :)

I got the Nexus 5x instead.
The only thing i really liked about the idol 4 were the speakers and colors (No color options here)
Jeanie, 01 Aug 2016I really do like this phone (Minus the huge 5.5" display) But really think it's over priced. ... moreThey figure with the high-end display and top mid-range processor, and the VR stuff, they will soak customers for the extra $100. Hence the Idol 4 with the IPS LCD and the smaller display and slower processor. Might as well get the Blackberry DTEK(Idol 4) with enhanced security then.
