Everything you need to know about the Alcatel Idol 4

Awesome entertainment

Idol 4 entertinament

Alcatel’s new Idol 4 has an awful lot to offer if you’re hunting for a phone with lots of entertainment options – at home or on the go.

The headline entertainment feature is the phone’s virtual reality capabilities. The phone comes bundled with a VR headset that’s light and comfortable to wear, but the phone itself has been made for the headset, easily clipping into the frame so you can use headphones and control the device via the set’s on board buttons. The screen is a high-definition 1080p display too, giving you crisp images and an immersive VR experience.

Looking past VR, the phone’s speakers are excellent, offering stereo-quality sound and a fair amount of bass for a smartphone. If you’re a Spotify or YouTube DJ, you’ll be able to do it all with this amazing handset.

Stylish design

If you’re hunting for a smartphone that looks and feels good in your palm, consider the Idol 4. Alcatel have put a lot of thought into the design of the device and have settled on a look that’s more like what you’d get with a top-of-the-range flagship phone instead of a mid-to-budget device.

There’s not a piece of plastic in sight, with a wonderfully durable metal frame that pleasingly arcs around the sides of the device and houses the top and bottom stereo speakers. Then there’s the sturdy glass screen and rear panel which make the phone look very smart indeed.

The size of the device is nice too, being big enough to sport a bright, 5.2-inch display, but thin enough to be held and easily slipped into your pocket when you’re done tapping and swiping.

Durable design

Affordably high-spec

Idol 4 High-Spec

Available at an affordable price, the Idol 4 nevertheless comes with a lot of high-powered technology that sets it apart from other budget phones.

Those are all brilliant specs, letting you speedily browse, game or play videos with ease. Can’t choose? This smartphone is made for multitaskers too.

For snap-happy users, there’s a 13MP rear-facing camera and 8MP selfie camera, both of which are very capable, and a brilliant HDR mode for creating Instagram-worthy images. Panoramas are also easily made, as well as fun micro-videos reminiscent of everyone’s favourite defunct app, Vine.
