Ratings and reviews

Rated 5 out of5 by fromBetter Phone Than I Expected!This phone was a warranty replacement of an Alcatel One Touch Fierce XL. First, I did not expect to be upgraded to this phone. Second, I never expected the quality and features to be this good. The camera is top notch and having the dedicated button is great. I'm glad to have the 64GB internal memory and the ability to install my 128GB trans flash card. I've been a Windows Phone user since I got my first one in 2006. The only things to improve this phone would be NFC and a stylus. With Windows 10 Mobile on this hardware I am working on the transition of carrying a phone and a tablet and a laptop. With Continuum I only need my phone! Great Product.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromPowerful phone that showcases Windows 10 mobile!The Idol 4S is a great phone. Very clear phone calls and great speaker phone. The apps run smoothly and rarely crash. This is a great business phone and the Microsoft integration makes multi tasking a breeze. I love the Groove Music app and the One Drive access is a great place for accessing your personal music collection!My most disappointing part of the phone is the camera. I was using a 950 XL previously and the IDOL 4S has much lower quality photos and only takes passable photos when there is perfect lighting. Image stabilization and clarity are definitely sub par.Overall, the phone meets most of my needs and is a great Windows phone.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromPerfect Windows PhoneMissing tap to pay which apparently never works even from an avid iPhone user. But I would give up nfc for such a quality phone for such a tiny price tag. I go through tmobile with my device and I get better reception with this device than any other device before it. AND CONTINUUM WORKS FLAWLESSLY. Just make sure you have a decent miracast device or simply use any Windows 10 device. it pops into a windows and your keyboard and mouse work right away and you can full screen it. Finally a phone that destroys Android and iPhone permanently.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromA lot more phone forr much lessI knew windows 10 had a lot more than 8.1 and definitely 8. And I've had a phone with each. So I've seen the OS grow into something I knew would be good, but not this good. Windows 10 gives you literally a pc in your pocket. And with the Alcatel idol 4s you have a serious diamond in the rough. Comes with the VR goggles and much more when paired with Windows 10. At a better price than the others. Microsoft you really have stepped up your game with Cortana, windows 10 and with this phone making it much more for the user as you and Alcatel have.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromA high-end Windows phoneAfter 24 hours I can truthfully say this is one of the nicest phones I've owned. Extremely well built, high quality. The 820 processor is fast and smooth. Speakers are amazing. Fingerprint scanner makes entry and security easy. The screen is bright and clear. Camera is above average. This one is a keeper.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromThe Best Windows Phone Yet - AwesomeSo I've had the T-Mobile variant for a little over 6 weeks now and all I can say is it blows all other Windows Phones from the past right out of the water. The first thing you'll notice is just how sleek this phone is. It fits in the hand comfortably and just looks incredible. It feels the most premium out of any windows phone so far and I've been an early adopter since the first W7M phones.The screen is just gorgeous. I've heard some people rumble about the screen and its resolution but all I can say is its crisp, clear and for me just perfect. The speakers on the front of the phone actually put out sound that you can listen too. It’s not tinny like most, a good all-around sound.The OS is smooth and I've had very few problems with the stock build. They must of taken a while to get this phone to work just right and I think it shows. I don't think I've had any F/W updates so far but still nothing that bugs me. The OS is just smooth and reliable.Another thing that I've heard grumbles about is the camera. Again, I just don't see it. The camera is as good if not better than any Lumia camera I've used including the L950 this phone is replacing.Charging on this phone is a breeze and battery life is just incredible. No longer do I have to leave the house having a panic attack that I'll be running out of battery after a few hours of reading news and watching a few videos. I've literally gone a day and a half with full use and still had battery to spare. Charging is also quick.Now for the negatives:I can find is the button placement. That said, I've been using Lumia's since they first came out and the buttons have always been the same. I find the power button to be badly placed and I was constantly launching the camera instead of turning the phone into standby. That said, I've gotten used to it now.The only other negative I have it the fingerprint reader. It's just odd. Located on the back you are constantly searching for it. Even after 6 weeks + I still can only get it right about 60% of the time but again, I've learned to live with it.All in all though, this is a fantastic phone and the best yet. I love it.
