Save 64% on the Windows 10 Mobile powered Alcatel Idol 4S from the Microsoft Store
The Microsoft Store can save you $301 or a whopping 64% on the Windows 10 Mobile powered unlocked Alcatel Idol 4S. Normally priced at $470, you'll be paying just $169 for the handset. Shipping, by the way, is free. Unfortunately, we don't know how long this deal is good for. Before we continue, we should point out that there is some difference in the specs between this Windows 10 Mobile handset and the variant that runs on Android.

For example, the 5.5-inch AMOLED display on the Android version of the Idol 4S offers a resolution of 1440 x 2560 (QHD) versus the 1080 x 1920 resolution on the Windows 10 Mobile unit. The latter features the Snapdragon 820 chipset under the hood, carrying an octa-core 2.15GHz CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 64GB of expandable native storage. Those that need additional storage can access the 512GB capacity microSD slot.

The 21MP rear-facing camera offers PDAF, while the 8MP front-facing selfie snapper shoots wide-angle shots. Keeping the lights on is a 3000mAh battery, and a fingerprint scanner adorns the back of the handset.

At $169, the Windows 10 Mobile version of the Alcatel Idol 4S is a great gift for the holidays, and is also a good first smartphone for the kids. If interested, tap on the sourcelink below.

Save yourself from disaster. I wonder if advertiser knows that probably not a single person on PA will by this phone?!

I’m not sure why not. It would make a great gift for older folks. I used to buy my mom Windows Phones all the time before finally switching her to an iPhone due to a sale. She loved them. If you’re not someone who needs apps it’s great.

I would not do that to my elders or elders just because they are elders. Mid range or higher budget Android is the way to go. My mom is not exactly a heavy app user but she finds a few apps now and then that are not present on Windows phone. I also know that most of the Android phones I buy today will be updated and potential at it's core for years. I personally would not recommend or buy a phone that runs dead platform.

How is a 5,5" phone a good first phone for kids? I'm 21 and I still can't convince myself to use anything over 4,7 Anyway, I always liked that phone, if only there was a way to install both WP and Android I would buy it just to play with it. Android version had some pretty decent features

you should, i still play with my Lumia 830 and 925, the cams still amaze me even now and Denim 8.1 on my 925 runs like ice on glass. If you were "gonna" then think about about a 930 with 2 gig ram and load it with W10. The 20mp Pureview will blow you away

My 4-5 yr old won't even play with a windows mobile device. They call it the grandpa phone.

You're wrong.. I have this phone and to be honest this is a platform that overdoes the android. Why? I don't need to delete data like in most of all the androids because "you're internal storage is low". Second, the view apps it supports are just of its own. Like whatsapp, in windows 10 mobile I can chose from saving incoming data automatically or leave all those incoming "good morning" pics as they are. Above all if you want a phone for business on the run do consider a Windows 10 mobile OS. This Alcatel idol 4s with Windows 10 suits it all
