Like the saying goes, "a bad day on Android or iOS still beats a good day on Windows Mobile." Nothing about this version of the IDOL 4S changes the inherent shortcomings of Microsoft's mobile platform, which I still can't recommend to anyone outside of Microsoft enthusiasts. Still, for those folks, Alcatel has brought excellent audio, good battery life, and Continuum support to the IDOL 4S "Pro," and while its built-in VR solution is less than memorable, it's still interesting to see it deployed on a Windows smartphone. So even if for novelty alone, join me for a look at the latest Windows phone: the IDOL 4S with Windows 10.



MrMobile's Alcatel IDOL 4S Windows 10 review was produced after five days with an IDOL 4S with Windows 10 review device on loan from Alcatel. The device was tested on T-Mobile US in Greater Boston, US.
