I really do like this phone (Minus the huge 5.5" display)
But really think it's over priced.
If it was $300 then I'd definitely buy it, but $400 seems like too much for a phone like this.
Also can't get the $200 one since I won't be switching over to cricket and it only comes in black.
I'm a bit disappointed. Guess I'll have to wait for some other phone.
Anonymous, 26 Jul 2016Why not buy the Vodafone Smart Platinum 7 which is exactly the same phone?Because it's locked to Vodafone.
it actually has a fingerprint sensor, in MWC we dont have it, but in the market we got the fingerprint sensor. www.androidauthority.com/alcatel-idol-4s-review-704805/ . please fix the spec info and picture :)
Anonymous, 25 Jul 2016Does the $399 already include the VR or is it just the smartphone?It includes the VR Google's. Also if you order before 8/3/16 (preorder) it's only $350.00
Don't worry guys the vodafone platinum 7 the same as idol 4s is a beast of a phone there are now many unboxing + review also comparisons between different brands with this...and it's solid fast the FP is very quick little bloatware near stock android...but with the platinum 7 you don't get VR headset unfortunately...otherwise the price in euros in my country (romania) it's 355 euro contract free or 170 euro on a 16 euros contract for two years...i will get this asap because its really beautiful no compromises on build quality...stereo speakers the best...and it DOESN'T get hot at all after longer use...don't think anymore and buy IT...you will not regret one bit that decision !!!
Maikel-Netherlands, 23 Jul 2016The specs r looking ok for my daily things but a non removable battery means no 1 cent to it. But have fast charging, and i hear that have a good result after the day.

Alcatel Idol 4 / 4s has the strongest and purest sound in the world of mobile phones over the next 2.3 years (maybe longer), thanks to the boom by using keys that sound volume increases to 3.6 W. fantastic, stronger than the Nexus 6p, all HTC, ZTE Axon 7 ... not to forget the beautiful screen ...

Doubt It, 15 Jul 2016It's a shame you can't capture video in 1080p@60fpsActually, it should be able to.
The Vodafone Smart Platinum 7 is the same phone and it comes with 1080@60fps.
