Alcatel IDOL 4 and IDOL 4SThe styling is very comparable and Alcatel has made a point to incorporate its mark reversible outline one once more. This time, be that as it may, it has been made one stride past with three way reversibility - the telephone can work in both vertical introductions, on a level plane and notwithstanding when you turn it around the stereo sound introduction stays right. Keeping in mind we are on the point of sound, both IDOL handsets guarantee a magnificent ordeal, on account of the joint effort with JBL and Waves. This incorporates two capable 3.6 watt speakers, Hi-Fi encompass sound for the headset, and advancement of sound presets both consequently and physically.
Another development to the arrangement, which Alcatel made a point to stretch upon is another physical catch, named the BoomKey. It is mapped to do an entire group of intriguing things over the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS, some truly more intelligent than others. "Blast my camera" for example is a fast approach to shoot photographs from standby and "Blast my music" guarantees sound enhancement, regardless of what is playing (in spite of the fact that it brings up the issue why might you need to have it off). "Blast my recordings", presents "shocking impacts in existing recordings", "Blast my amusement" discharges Nitro in Asphalt recreations and "Blast my perspective" heightens the 3D parallax impact in the launcher.
Keeping in mind we are on the theme of 3D, a pleasant little expansion to the IDOL 4 blend, comes politeness of its retail box. It can be effectively changed into a Google Cardboard-style headset for a passage level VR experience.
Alcatel propelled two moderate yet well-manufactured Android 6.0 Marshmallow cell phones at MWC 2016, the Alcatel IDOL 4S and the IDOL 4. What sets the Alcatel new cell phone separated is their capacity to change into VR headsets, on account of its splendidly composed bundling.
We reported about the spilled details in ahead of schedule February, when the two telephones showed up quickly on the brand's site.
Once in the past known as Alcatel OneTouch, Alcatel is the versatile brand, sponsored by Chinese maker TCL China Corporation, which purchased its joint endeavor accomplice Alcatel-Lucent in 2005. Alcatel means to wind up one of the main 3 handset sellers on the planet, and it would seem that the extreme change of its new lead telephones might help the maker to achieve that objective.
Truth be told, I was pleasantly shocked by the considerable nature of those cell phones with lower value focuses than show stars like the Samsung Galaxy S7 or the LG G5, and in the wake of being utilized to see Alcatel OneTouch mid-range cell phones at past MWC releases.
Alcatel IDOL 4 and IDOL 4S
Modern Design (great)
The Alcatel IDOL 4S is the lead with a bigger case, a more slender body, a superior showcase and a beefier processor than the IDOL 4. The IDOL 4 arrangement offers a premium vibe on account of the glass touch on the front board and the glass back spread. Both the 4S and 4 will be offered in four metal casing choices: Gold, Dark Gray, Rose Gold and Metal Silver.
The bigger, 5.5-inch IDOL 4S, is ultra-slender at 6.99 mm and shockingly light (149 grams), which is a hair more slender than a definitive star of MWC 2016, the Samsung Galaxy S7 that stands at 7.9 mm. The thicker 7.1 mm IDOL 4 includes a 5.2-inch handset with a comparable mechanical outline. Both gadgets highlight mid-range Qualcomm processors, the IDOL 4S wears a Snapdragon 652 and the IDOL 4 gets the Snapdragon 617.
Both telephones don the adjusted Boom key on one side, a novel physical catch that triggers various components that I will depict in another passage, and at the base of that side you will discover the volume rocker.
On the other side the force catch seats close by the SIM card space that can convey a MicroSD or a second SIM. At the base of the cell phone a USB connector and the sound jack at the top, and both smaller edges highlight an amplifier, so you can get the telephone both ways and your voice will in any case sound clear.

The IDOL 4S gets an excellent 5.5-inch QHD (2560×1440) AMOLED show, which conveys high complexity and clear hues. The survey point is great. As a correlation, the 5.5 inch iPhone 6S Plus just offers a full HD show for a gadget estimated at $749.
Amid my brief experience with the IDOL 4S I could play one of the VR recordings put away on-board: the video quality is great and the sound was clear when set at 80% most extreme volume, a great execution given the uproarious environment on the show floor. Clearly, the two intense 3.6-watt speakers conveyed that reasonable sound. Alcatel worked with JBL and Waves to tune the sound quality, and on the equipment side, gives a decent sound quality on all sides, on account of the expansion of the speaker grille on the front and the back at both the base and the highest point of the gadgets, so the sound is unhampered, regardless of how the telephone is situated. Both IDOL 4 arrangement are delivered with J22 JBL earphones that incorporate Hi-Fi encompass sound.

Alcatel IDOL 4 and IDOL 4S VR bundling
Alcatel-IDOL-4S-12The most appealing and detectable element of the IDOL 4 Series is its capacity to change into a section level VR headset utilizing the plastic bundling box.

Execution and capacity
