nick , 07 May 2017I have been doing a comparison of the idol 4s and the Windows idol 4s,I had no clue that their... moreWell in real world too there's a heck lot of difference.
The Windows version has better processor (Snapdragon 820), larger storage (64 GB), larger RAM (4 GB), better rear camera (21 megapixel) with a larger sensor size. The Windows version is substantially faster than the Android version.
The Windows version also has newer and faster USB-Type C connector while the Android version has older and slower micro-USB connector.
The Windows version also has a fingerprint scanner.
You can use Continuum on the Windows version.
The only thing good about the Android version is its higher resolution 1440 x 2560 pixels display otherwise the Windows version is leagues ahead of it in all other segments.
And the most important thing is that the factory unlocked variant of Alcatel Idol 4S Windows costs $275 on Amazon, which makes it cheaper to buy than the Android version.

Filiberto, 20 Apr 2017He wants a windows phone not android.Take a good look at his post. He is asking for a Android ROM to flash on this phone. He is technically asking for an Android equivalent of this phone.
Next time take a good time to read the post before commenting mindlessly.
In my town there's only LTE 7 (2600) and 3 (1800) currently. Is there any way to get this to work?

nate0, 12 Feb 2017Yes. Being on AT&T though I just bough the unlocked model through Microsoft.I bought it for $288 from T-Mobile store and I had to pay $20 extra for the SIM, oddly enough the T-Mobile version is unlocked too. I didn't need the T-Mobile SIM so I kept it in the phone just for activation. Once activated I threw away the SIM and put my AT&T and Verizon SIM into the phone and they work great.
The SIM activation was lot of hassle but at $308 it was worth the hassle.
nate0, 11 Feb 2017T-Mobile dropped the price on their US site to 288.Now that's dirt cheap.
That makes it even cheaper than OnePlus 3 and Moto G4 Plus. Quite a bang for buck I would say.
