Fairplay Alcatel, that's not a bad effort at all.

Only the North American and the Vodafone models will have fingerprint scanner or the worldwide model too will have one ?

Vodafone HU also has it, and it seems to be the best fit for me, although still a bit on the expensive side for my budget. Even so, on a 30USD/mo plan with 160USD upfront, it's easily the best value. On the same plan Galaxy S6 is 350USD upfront, Galaxy S7 530USD upfront. 6s Plus 16GB is 700USD upfront. This Idol 4s/Smart Platinum 7 is hugely great value. Even without water resistance and SD652.

A near perfect phone, which is enough for me. I like how innovative Alcatel is, with their gorgeous design and features. Much more interesting than the big brands.

DarkReed, 14 Jul 2016Sounds great. I wonder how much will it cost in my country!Try converting $400 in whatever your country's currency is. It should be around the same price, "IF" it gets launched in your country.

So by North America you mean USA, because anywhere else, especially Canada the price will be much more than 350. I bet up here in Canada it will be 599, or 250 on a 2 year contract and it will be a Bell exclusive. (Because Canadian Carriers such)
