          I bought my Idol 4s Windows 10 phone on November 11th so i have only had it a few days, but as of now I can say I love it. My 2 previous phones were LG G4 and Samsung Note 3, 2 high end phones. Both run Android. Both are quality phones that take great pictures. The Idol 4S also takes great pictures. I had read a review on the web that says it does not take good low light pictures so I put it to the test with some outdoor Christmas lights at a mall. Althought it was only 20 shots I was very impressed with the quality. I also had the LG Stylo and I returned it because it takes terrible low light pictures. There is simply no comparison between the 2 phone's pictures. The front selfie camera takes great shots too.

          This is a very elegant phone. Extremely polished front and back. I think it is much more beautiful than the Note 3 or Lg G4. This phone is also extremely fast. Every thing opens very quick. I don't use a lot of apps but Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Flipboard, and pandora all work fast and smooth. The call quality and signal strength are outstanding. The call volume is very good too. The exterior speakers are very loud, much more than the G4, it has been a while since I had the Note 3 so I can't compare it the Idol 4S. When ever I would put my G4 on speaker phone I could barely hear it not so with the Idol, loud and clear.

          It does have a SD card slot built in with the sim card tray. I added 64 GB card so with the 64 GB the phone comes with, it gives me lots of storage.

          Pros of the phone:
          *only $469 from T-mobile compared to $769 for the Edge or I-Phone 7
          *it is beautiful
          *21 MP camera back, 8 MP front camera, it takes great pictures
          *better than average call quality
          *loud exterior speakers
          *SD card slot
          *64 GB of phone memory
          *4 GB of ram
          *large responsive screen

          Cons of the phone as I see it:
          *the back of the phone does not come off.
          *Windows store has a much more limited supply of apps but the ones I've tried seem to work the way they are meant to. So check the store and see if they have the apps you need and use before you commit to it.
          *the back of the phone is glass but that makes it beautiful, how durable it will be is yet to be determined. Buy a good case for insurance.
          *many of the Zedge notifications and ringtones I transfered from my G4 don't seem to work, I'm not sure why. The ones I get from Windows Zedge work fine.

          Hope this helps anyone interested in this phone. I'm not a sales person or representative just a tech junkie. I love Windows 10, Linux and Android. Sorry never used I-phone but my son loves his.

            Conufes, 10 Nov 2016Didn't they just release a superphone with Windows 10?Yeah but its specs are way different from normal Idol 4S. It has much more powerful Snapdragon 820 processor, 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage, it has 21 megapixel camera, finger-print scanner and has USB Type-C port for Continuum support.
            It may look same as Idol 4S but its components and specifications are completely different.

                                    The VR gear is subpar. The apps that come with it are nowhere near the quality of samsung. Basically it is an fancy google cardboard and I thought that cardboard worked much better.
                                    I returned the phone because the EU version does not have a fingerprint sensor, which is a dealbreaker for me. I would have kept it otherwise.

                                      Idol 4 S has 3.6 watt jbl speakers. I think Alcatel made a wrong move selling this with the VR headset and the JBL earphones instead of making it 299$ because ppl dont realise what they get for this price. Even at 400, its a better phone than axon 7, op3.... Compact, beautifull design, amazing screen an sound ( I read reviews about low nits, but in auto, it overides to more than 600 nits in direct sunlight, the best screen under sunlight I ever had).
                                      Keep in mind the 820 need more battey and it costs only 20$ more.
