Alcatel Idol 4S with VR Goggles Review
      07/25/16 02:51 PM

Alcatel impressed us with last year's Idol 3, it proved that a relatively inexpensive phone could still be stylish and slim with decent specs. The $399 Idol 4S with VR Goggles is the company's highest end phone yet, and it does indeed share some specs with much more expensive phones-- it's slim at 7mm, is really good looking with black glass on the back and chamfered metal on the sides and it has a QHD 5.5" AMOLED display that has 600 nits of brightness. 8MP and 16MP cameras grace the front and back and the usual goodies like NFC, WiFi 802.11ac and a fingerprint scanner are what we'd expect on a flagship. The midrange 1.8 GHz Snapdragon 652 is actually a quicker performer and the phone has 3 gigs of RAM and 32 gigs of storage. Alcatel tries to set the Idol 4S apart with the inclusion of VR goggles, but they prove to be the weakest link. The phone is unlocked for use with any GSM carrier, and this US-centric model has 4G LTE for AT&T, T-Mobile and others.
