Sadly disappointed

The Alcatel 4S phone is very nice, it looks expensive and feels well-made and is very light. Even though it looks and feels great this phone did not perform well. After three days it froze constantly, apps would not open and if they did, it would take a long time to load. The camera is very basic and the phone does not have any outstanding features. Being a Microsoft fan, I returned an Android phone running Android Nougat , to purchase an Alcatel Windows Phone only to have it crash and burn in 3 days. Not impressed. Microsoft offers no support, or protection for their phones, even trying to return the phone to the store is an ordeal. I can see why the company is losing traction to Apple and Android. I am really disappointed in Microsoft, not sure what phone to purchase now.




Great Product - weak glass screen

I love this phone. Voice and call clarity is great, the sound is amazing, and the battery life is great. Windows 10 Anniversary update runs pretty smooth (Bluetooth and car audio seems to be a problem still (but that seems to be a general complaint by most). The fingerprint reader is plenty quick. Only downside was there were no accessories for it in the Microsoft Store (Online and in retail outlets), so I couldn't get a case for it (and the only places to find a case for the android version, which would fit, are online). After having it for two weeks, it slide off the arm of my couch and the screen cracked. The thing definitely needs a case (It is slippery with the dragon glass on both sides of the phone).

Interesting and Great phone

This is the first time I've purchased an expensive 'flagship' phone. My first impressions are very positive. The phone arrived 3 days after ordering it - excellent! The phone itself feels very 'premium'; not the Lumia 'plastic' feel; there is a high quality 'metallic' feel to it. Love how thin and light it is - amazing! The 5.5 inch screen is perfect size for a larger phone; I wouldn't want to go any larger. I like that it has a dedicated camera button! Speakers sound good. Screen is super bright, but not quite as warm as an OLED display. Still in the learning stages about the camera/picture quality. So far, so good! I'm very happy with my purchase so far. Will update after a few days of use....

950XL Onwer

Idol 4S

First off I would like to say the device is beautiful..After that it was down hill from there.. I opened the box and sensed something was not right..The device was a return or had been opened prier to me receiving it..The VR headset cover was all scratched and I could see the factory screen plastic protector had been reapplied..I thought oh well and continued to set up my new device..Things went well until I inserted an SD card loaded with Pictures then every time I tried to open Photos it would crash..Tried two other SD cards same thing happened again..Also the camera is absolutely terrible when compared to my 950XL..After taking a photo and if I zoomed in to view it up close it would never focus correctly..Returned it the next day with much sadness and disappointment..

[1] Unlocked GSM cell phones are compatible with GSM carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile as well as with GSM SIM cards (e.g., H20, Straight Talk, Cricket Wireless, MetroPCS, and select prepaid carriers). Microsoft does not guarantee the performance of phones. Please check with your carrier of choice for phone compatibility. Actual data speeds will vary. Check with your network operator for details.

[2] Pre-installed software and apps use a significant amount of the internal memory space.

[3] Talk, standby and playback times are estimates only. Actual times are affected by, for example, network conditions, device settings, features being used, battery condition, and temperature.
