    Impressive specs. Just was hoping to see the NFC included for use of the Wallet app.

    It would be good to know what LTE bands this phone supports.

    So probably wouldn't be able to make full use of the AT&T network with the limited number of bands. I have a Straighttalk sim which uses AT&T as the network.

    Note that it uses a NANO (size) SIM card, so if your existing phone uses a Micro SIM card, you're out of luck; will need to buy (and have programmed) a new NANO SIM card.
    (It also uses the more normal-sized microSD memory card.)

    I posted a picture of the LTE bands of my unlocked model on this thread here.

    UMTS: 1,2,4,5 LTE: 2,4,12,5,7,17

    It is coming from the box, so we take it as that.

    I have been trying to find a diag or field test app that will allow to view the bands from the device. The built in diag app from TCL does not seem to have that feature...

    On GFXbench I saw an interesting update on the results for this phone and they were dated 3/9/2017. But it was oddly named Nokia 6071w...just sharing it for info, in case anyone is curious as it is hard to tell what who or why things like that show up.

    That is the Model Number it calls itself internally. I got the same listing for mine on AnTuTu minus the Nokia bit: http://forums.windowscentral.com/gen...tm#post3620277

    Ya exactly, that is what had me wondering as to why Nokia was even in it...? The original listings are still there, in GFXbench under Alcatel Idol 4 Pro 6071W...
    Maybe for tracking purposes.

    Where can I find an OEM charger for this device? Also, what voltage output/input does this take?

    Try Amazon.

    Here's a pic from the side of my factory charger. Note that this is from the T-Mo version. Funny how it is in Spanish.

    wp_20170713_19_46_19_raw.jpg

    Input: 100-240V, 50/60Hz, 0.5A
    Output: 5V 2A or 9V 1.67A

    However, I think the factory charger cable combo is slow. I used a Type C to Type C cable and an Aukey charger with Type C port to great effect on my Idol 4S. Charged fast and didn't heat the device up.

    https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Pushes 5V 3A through the Type C port as does this one https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I also acquired a 3.3' braided C to C cable for the car and a 6.6' one for the house.
    https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Even though I'm giving up the Idol 4S, I'm keeping the Aukey gear as it is futureproof. I'll be using them on my next USB C device when it comes in: a Chuwi Surbook.


    IMHO, you would do better looking for a quality replacement rather than the OEM item. In particular I think the supplied cable is a drag on charging and data transfer speeds. Looks like the A end is just 2.0 to me.

    Interesting, I just ordered the unlocked version from Microsoft store and it only lists LTE 2,4,12. I plan to use on Cricket and hope to have at least as good of service as my Lumia 650.
    Do you know if the ##3284 # works on the Idol to see the engineering menus?

    It's actually ##3282#. And that is the Lumia fieldtest app. It does not work on non-Lumia phones.

    You are correct ##3282 # I hit wrong key. That key code does work on other phones. When I was on Sprint it worked on my HTC phones as well going back to audio vox branded PPC6601 and Hitachi G1000.

    I have a few others written down somewhere that give talk timer and other menus.

    My Idol is set to arrive tomorrow Wednesday 1-24-18 by 8pm via fed ex.
    I look forward to trying it out.
