Last year we saw the Alcatel IDOL 3S and it was a huge success and keeping in line with that success Alcatel wanted to retain its place as a top contender in the smartphone market in Canada. The premium feel, design of this midrange device gives it the Oomph that you need. Does it deliver?
** This is a top level “MIDRANGE” device, so this will fall in the Tier 2 group of smartphone devices which aims at the major slice of the smartphone market in Canada. Surprisingly the majority of Canadians aren’t going with TIER 1 devices (Flagships). Alcatel is striving to dominate the midrange device level in the Canadian market.
Without waiting for more shenanigans, let’s dive right into the review of this device.
The Alcatel IDOL 4 comes with some interesting hardware:
- 5.2-inch Full-HD (1920×1080) Display
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 Octa-Core Processor (4×1.5GHz + 4×1.2GHz)
- Dual 3.6-Watt Speakers Featuring Waves Audio Technology
- 13MP Main Camera + 8MP Wide-Angle Front Camera
