    Way too big for me--not even worth looking at.
    I agree with it also being too big for me as well, but I would be looking forward to reading first impressions and general thoughts about this device whenever T-Mobile decides to drop some information...

    I think Windows 10M in my square opinion is a lot more suited for big screens than Android and iOS. You could eyeball some of the more focused tiles easily and blind tap others.

    Maybe so if you are sitting still holding and using the phone with two hands like a tablet. To me anything bigger than about 5-5.5 inches is too big for mobile, one-handed use, and that is primarily what I use a smartphone for. Plus, it needs to fit comfortably into a shirt or pants pocket.

    From what I read this thing is to have a 5.5 - 6 inch display --- is there anything official yet? ... The Moto X Pure has a 5.7 display. I can handle it with one hand for most things but I still (sometimes) think to myself, "Man this thing is just a tad too big" lol.

    If this Idol 4 Pro comes out with a 6" display I'm certain I won't bother . However, if it comes with 5.5 display (not bigger than that) I'll consider ... but I think I'd consider an unlocked version because of T-Mobile's policy concerning some of the phones they initially carry ... then drop'em like a hot potato in a short span of time.

    I'm not too concerned with the actual display size. It's the overall footprint that matters and this thing appears to have a favorable screen-to-body ratio. No, I'm not one of those bezel bashers but it makes a difference on larger phones - like the 1520.

    Well I don't outright prefer huge displays, I was just saying Windows 10's asymmetrical layouts work better for larger screens than what I've experienced on an old HTC Flyer. Even if that device is so old, Android and iOS iconography aren't fantastic on large displays. Phablets in general aren't pocket friendly, but one thing I hope Windows Mobile doesn't lose is its organic square layout, regardless of how different W10M vastly is to 8.1 and below.

    Same here. I personally don't like screens any bigger than 4.7 but would stretch to 5". Real shame if it's that huge. I really cannot stand bulky phones. They are suppose to be discrete and fit snug into your pockets. Not to be carried around in a man bag.

    Per Alcatel's site pre-orders for 349.99 (discounted 50). I expect once the Pro is available we could purchase it off the OEM site as well. My guess is around the same price 400 or so.

    Would love to see how that Camera performs. Always on the lookout for awesome cameras :)
    4GB RAM, 64GB Storage and a 820 processor. All the staples for a lovely flagship phone.

    Hoping this wasn't cancelled.

    The PRO 4 is the Windows phone I'm waiting for...
    I think that's the reason it's not available yet.

    Remembering how badly I wanted the Lumia 640 after it was announced and then it took my friends at T-Mobile an eternity to actually get it on the rack at WalMart.
    Quite frustrating I must say.

    i did hear some rumblings that it might be coming early next year. (January - February) Obviously, the sooner the better :)

    The Idol 4 for Android is out now. The hardware is being beefed up for the Windows "Pro" version. All indicators are that it ships with Redstone 1. You guys are waiting on an RTM from Microsoft, IMHO. http://forums.windowscentral.com/alc...-features.html

    The Android Idol 4S version got some pretty good reviews from the lesser known tech bloggers.
    One guy even said it was the poor mans Samsung S7 so I'm holding out some hope.

    Wish these promised/rumored devices wouldn't take so damned long to hit the street.

    It's Mr Rubino's fault. People in the industry talk to him and he puts it on the Blog. That makes it seem like it's coming any minute.

    Curse his connections and advanced knowledge!!!

    Hey, if its just 22 years until curtains. Then that means that is round about 76 - 22 = 54 years for you right now GuyTronic. That makes you definitely young and sprightly man. My dad used to go out hunting, road trips. and what not. At that sprightly young age. Dont give up hope just yet. I bet MS will have something out before the next 22 years are up. I'm sure of it brother! :D

    I'm right behind you big guy. I wonder if we'll get the fabled Surface Phone by then. Who am I kidding, we'll be sporting Jitterbugs on Consumer Cellular.

    One would think they already have production ramped up in anticipation of RS1 release which if rumors were true was the time frame of it's supposed unveiling. If all the hints and leaks are also true, and the phone looks the same as its lesser powered Android cousin, the Idol Pro 4 may well become the best selling Windows phone of all time. It has a Galaxy S6 ish look to it, all the same internals as the rest of the flagships that run Android, and price wise will most likely line up with the One Plus 3, and the ZTE Axon 7 : $400.00 US So that's a Snapdragon 820, 4 Gigabytes of ram, most likely 32 internal storage augmented by an SD card occupying the second sim slot. Will they include the HiFi audio as well? 2 front facing speakers to take on the HP Elite X3. HP is asking too much for their phone IMO. I hope they announce it at least by September 4th, my birthday is the 3rd, and Its either the Idol pro 4 or the 950 XL.

    If that's all it's waiting on it'll be the best bang for the buck phone shipping this year! Consider this, the iPhone works so well because everything is designed in house, including the OS. Windows Mobile doesn't have the quite the overhead resource wise that Android does which causes it to lag
    a lot on quite a few phones, to include flagships, but it is getting there. With the kind of firepower that the Idol pro 4, and the Elite X3 are throwing
    at Windows Mobile, it should run lag free all day even smoother than iOS.
