Tests

It fulfils most expectations…

I had the pleasure to review the Alcatel Idol 4 model a month ago, and now I received its (slightly) bigger, more powerful, better equipped and more expensive brother, that is Idol 4s.

It is neatly packed with VR glasses, it has a solid specification and a reasonable price… Alcatel is really becoming dangerous for rivals in the middle-higher price shelf.

Alcatel Idol 4s resembles Idol 4 in many ways – but it is better than it (for a higher price). So it is normal that some opinions and information from the previous review might be repeated. Still, the fact remains that this smartphone has everything that we can expect from a smartphone from the middle price shelf, and what is more the manufacturer spoils us with a nice set of accessories.
