The Idol 4S is a very appealing $400 smartphone from Alcatel. It features a 5.5-inch Quad HD AMOLED display, Snapdragon 652 octa-core processor with 3GB of RAM, 16MP rear camera, 3000mAh battery, fingerprint scanner and Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
Alcatel's Idol 4S also includes some unique features that help it stand out from the competition. Not only does it have a programmable Boom Key on its side, but it features dual stereo front-facing JBL-certified speakers that are unrivaled in performance. They rock! For $400, the Idol 4S isn't the absolute best smartphone in its price category, but it will make for a great daily driver, especially for those intrigued by its "unique" features.
