Product Description
Instantly click pictures, share photos, increase brightness, make the videos you're recording go live and more with the press of the Idol 4's boom button. To make you fit right into the futuristic lifestyle even more, it comes with an octa-core processor, Waves MaxxAudio technology, a full HD display and a 13-MP rear camera. Now you can make the most of life in no time.

Dive into the world of virtual reality with the VR set provided with the Alcatel Idol 4. All you have to do is insert your smartphone into the VR set to watch and play 2D and 3D videos and games, and other virtual reality apps from the pre-installed VR Launcher.

Boom Your Sensations

The boom key gives you access to a wide range of functions with the press of a single button. With it, you can control your camera, gallery, videos, music, games and more with greater ease. For example, pressing and holding the button will make the camera go into burst mode, whereas if you were to press it while recording a video it will broadcast the video live.

Blast Out the Music

Complemented by Waves’ professional audio enhancement technology, this smartphone’s dual-speakers reproduce sounds accurately at high decibel levels. A total audio output of 7.2 watts means this smartphone doesn’t only play music clearly but loudly too. You can use Onetouch Music (Alcatel’s all-in-one music ecosystem app) to mix, sample, discover or stream tracks.

Flipping Incredible

Not matter how you view this phone, it’s display will adjust itself to make the user-interface suit your vision. If you turn it around, the left and right audio channels will automatically change for an immersive audio experience.

Mind-blowing Camera

Life in the modern world is too fast for any sort of delay. Focus on and photographically capture the interesting sights that pass you by in a matter of 0.1 seconds with the 13-MP rear camera. You can also use the camera to capture enchanting and interactive 360-degree photos. A dual-tone flash makes for clear, natural looking photos even when it’s dark. What’s more is, even the 8-MP front camera comes with a flash, so you can take detailed selfies even when you’re in a dingy club with your buddies.

An Explosion of Colour

Idol 4’s 13.20-cm, full HD, IPS display brings in a whole new element of life into entertainment. It reproduces images as a resolution of 2560x1440 pixels for crystal-clear viewing. Even if you view the screen at an extreme angle, there won’t be any degradation in colour or contrast, thanks to IPS technology.

Dangerously Alluring

Not only is Alcatel’s Idol 4 masterful when it comes to performance, it’s also sophisticated with its looks. An elegant glass front, a textured glass back and a metallic frame make it a sight to behold.


A powerful MSM8952 octa-core processor (1.5 GHz + 1.2 GHz) and 3 GB of RAM make for a smooth multitasking experience. Throw an Adreno 405 GPU into the equation and you have a smartphone that you can play a highly detailed game like Mortal Kombat X without facing lag while your social media apps are running in the background.


An internal memory of 16 GB means you can store your favourite apps, videos, songs and other content on this smartphone. If you need more space to store large-sized games or movies, you can always expand the memory by up to a whopping 512 GB with a micro SD card.

Operating System

Thanks to the Android Marshmallow 6.0 OS, you can use your expanded memory as your primary storage space. The OS also makes this smartphone highly efficient at managing power.


Apart from Wi-Fi for high-speed internet connectivity and Bluetooth for high-speed transfer rates, this phone also supports 4G. So, you can stream HD videos or play online games when you’re on the move without experiencing lag. You can also use two different SIMs on this phone to separate your personal life from your professional life.


When fully charged, the Idol 4’s 2610-mAh li-po battery ensures that you get up to 15 hours of talktime and up to 520 hours of standby time with 3G connections.

Nice Product from Alcatel

Alcatel has done wonders with this product. Fits right into the budget, great looks, awesome sound quality nice finish and good hardware. I didn't receive the VR headset with product, I ordered. However, they would be great too and would provide an awesome experience I hope.
If only Alcatel could provide options for customisation in Android, the way HTC does it, then the Alcatel would be a most desireable phone.

Simply awesome

The Phone Looks like I Phone, of course comparing legendary Alcatel with 10 year old IPhone may be derogatory.

It never hangs, picture quality is razor sharp and professional colours. the Stereo Speakers are really an eye turners. Battery is surprisingly standing Kong hours. Boom key is a pleasure....
even though 16 GB RAM but it's having good amount if space for a normal user.

you may not have options to cover it with a neat back cover... but the one available with the box is good. the ...
