Idol 4 and 4s, Plus 10, POP4, POP4+, and POP4S: Alcatel at MWC 2016


Alcatel brought the whole family - two Idol 4 phones, Pixis of all sizes and even a Windows 10 hybrid laptop. The phones really like to party and have dedicated Boom button, which turns up the sound, launches the camera (and dose a few other things),...

Alcatel Idol 4 review


A phone with a lot to offer, but without the battery to back it up

Stereo speakers ; Decent screen ; Competent camera

Bad battery life ; Phone isn't up to rendering VR ; Mediocre performance

Alcatel has packed some eye-catching features into this highly affordable phone, including a VR headset, a metal-and-glass design, and stereo speakers. But a subpar VR experience and poor battery life have us questioning its priorities.

Sim Free Alcatel Idol 4 Plus Mobile Phone- Dark Grey


The phone features are lovely but battery life is a disappointment. It can not last the whole day even with 2 or 3 phone calls. I don't use the phone often but the battery will be gone within a twinkle of an eye.

Alcatel IDOL 4 Plus


Good size, feels and looks good. Comes with flip holder or solid back protector. Good size Ram. Easy set up.

Only reason not 10 all round is battery life could be better, although not a problem and easily lasts me into 2 days, and the annoying pop up apps trying to encourage me to install them. This seems common with most phones though based on reviews I read...

Alcatel IDOL 4 Plus


Phone has great loudspeakers and the whole package is outstanding. Mobile comes with wide array of accessories - good headphones, mobile cases (one back and one front&back), screen protector, VR glasses. So far system is working impeccably even with...

Long time of charging. Also for the first few days battery was going down really fast, but it seems to be better now. I expected a little better quality of night photos, but as for a mid-range smartphone it is still good.
