OUR EARLY VERDICT
A hidden gem from MWC, the Alcatel Idol 4S is a phone that impresses for a pretty low price point given the spec list.
- Patrick Holland, 2017-01-28
THE GOOD Alcatel's Idol 4S comes packed with features and accessories. It has a high-end design and build, a great camera, impressive display and a convenience button dubbed the Boom Key.
THE BAD The Boom Key needs finessing: It's easy to accidentally activate. The fingerprint scanner is small and sometimes difficult to engage.
THE BOTTOM LINE With a premium build, good camera and free accessories in the box, Alcatel's Idol 4S is a solid midrange buy.
