    Well, it looks like the new Idol 4 Pro from Alcatel is already delayed in the UK. And its availability is limited anyway. Not a great start.

    Are you still interested? If so, are you interested enough to buy one? I'm thinking my Idol 4s is probably enough for me right now, seeing as how they're basically the same phone, even if the new Idol makes its way to the U.S. at some point.

    They probably misplaced the one pallet that had all the Idol 4 Pros on it.

    Nope. Not interested. Definitely won't be buying a windows phone in the current conditions. There are just so much better out there.

    Not in this phone, no. But I have the Elite X3 and a couple days ago my phone broke her 950XL and was forced to go back to her iPhone. Knowing the future of Windows mobile, she soon insisted I buy her an Elite X3 as well so she didn't have to use her iPhone (which she used to love, but now hates). She is counting down the days until she gets her Windows phone in the mail. Odd yes, but we just enjoy the OS. She is not as app dependent as she thought she was and prefers to ride out the WP thing to the end. I feel the same.

    If would come to Spain with a price tag between 250€ and 300€, then yes. But 600€ or more, no way. I'm still a Windows phone user, but I'm losing my faith.

    No, why should anyone really? If MS is not interested in developing the OS then we shouldn't either.

    Nope because generally I could not afford it...

    I'll be holding out to my preloved Lumia 640 until the OS is deemed dead,or WhatsApp are no longer supported... Whichever comes first

    If i needed a phone right now I would certainly consider. My 950 XL is doing the trick for now.

    Thanks

    I bought my Lumia 950XL this year and I'm probably going to use it at least until mid next year, so for me there's no need to change my device.

    No, I'm moving to Android because of the lack of support from Microsoft and B2X.

    In a parallel history of the last 2 years this is what Windowsphone needs. An OEM providing a Windowsphone in the market.

    If, and it's a big if, Microsoft had said we are continuing to back Windowsphone with ongoing software developing Windows 10 Mobile. if they had released one or two phones and encouraged other OEMs then this phone would be worth consideration

    If Microsoft continue to appear to be lukewarm on mobile then no one should recommend this product.

    Microsoft could have moved to being a one phone a year manufacturer using off the shelf Chinese devices adapted to run Windows 10 Mobile. Just showing some vague interest would have gotten some sales in millions. Not huge but some.

    I have the device and its a great device. Fast, thin and overall a great phone. It took a bit to realize there is nothing like a Lumia just because of the apps you take for granted that are not there by default.

    Now the bad is their support. It is the worst I have ever encountered. A month in the speaker went wonky so I sent it in to get it fixed. I bought an unlocked phone and during the repair they flashed the phone. Fair enough except they flashed it with the T-Mobile rom. That was June 28th the phone has gone back twice to be reflashed and it keeps coming back with the T-Mobile rom. One would think they would just ship a different phone but they keep sending the same phone back. The only eason I know its the same phone is it still has the screen cover on it I put on when I got the phone.

    There support is subpar at best.

    That's so romantic!! I've got the X3 and LOVE IT! Best phone ever. My wife has the 950xl and she just loves her phone. She has to get a new phone for her work and it has to be an iPhone. She'd rather not get it but it's a must. :( Anyway, glad to hear you guys are hanging in there - there's no choice really, who can leave the WM environment for the 'other'...

    Much better than the X3 or this phone. Don't think so. This is a great phone. The X3 is an awesome phone.

    No, I would not. I won't switch my Lumia 950 XL for a new Alcatel Idol 4. Its hardware is a year old. Its OS (Windows 10 Mobile that is) probably won't be supported for long by Microsoft.
    Even if it would happen that I would broke tomorrow my Lumia I still wouldn't buy it. I would probably switch to either Samsung Galaxy S8 or to HTC U11.
    I can't understand why Alcatel comes to European market with this model so late. What's the point?
