Alcatel Idol 4 Cricket

Alcatel’s brand new Idol 4 is coming to Cricket Wireless on August 5 for only $199.99. This is already a super good deal considering the specs this device offers, but the AT&T MVNO is making the deal even better by offering the Idol 4 that comes with a free pair of virtual reality goggles.

Announced back in February, the Idol 4 aims to bring all-around good specs, a solid build and some neat features to its users without breaking the bank. As a quick overview, the device sports a 5.2-inch IPS LCD Full HD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor, 16GB of on-board storage and microSD expansion up to 256GB. It also has a 2610mAh battery and runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box.

The Idol 4's speakers will always deliver stereo sound on the correct side, even when the phone is flipped upside down
As for the special features this device offers, it comes with something called a Boom Key that lets you define custom actions like taking photos, listening to music and much more. Alcatel also teamed up with JBL and Waves to bring a high quality audio experience to the device thanks to its two 3.6 watt speakers. The Idol 4 is also reversible from left to right, so stereo sound will always be on the correct side (even when the phone is flipped upside down).
