Alcatel IDOL 4S Is The First VR-ready Windows 10 Mobile [VIDEO]By Sarene Mae Butao, UniversityHerald Reporter
Alcatel has recently announced that their IDOL 4S model runs on Windows 10, yet it also has an Android version that is not too expensive. The device also boasts its solid specs and amazing features, and the best bonus that it offers is its inclusion of a virtual reality headset.
Many users do not prefer the Windows 10 mobile operating system because of its limited app choices and its less number of developers. This is the primary reason why its market share is quite low; however, the Windows 10 operating system is ideally good with text messaging, web surfing and email access features.
Combining the Alcatel IDOL 4S with Windows 10 is a perfect package for professionals, gamers and tech-savvy users. This model sports a premium dual glass and metal-framed design while it is also packed with every productivity feature that its users do need, such as Continuum. Continuum can be utilized for users to convert their phone into a desktop, thus, it enables the connection of the Alcatel IDOL 4S into a secondary screen, keyboard and a mouse.
The Alcatel IDOL 4S also features a fingerprint reader right below its camera, so that an easy login will be possible using Windows Hello. Windows Big Junior Editor, Elana Pidgeon, said that the IDOL 4S includes a virtual reality headset as part of its bundle. The phone can be snapped into the goggles so that an easy virtual-reality experience could be enjoyed by the user, according to Engadget.
It is then possible for users to play 3D games and watch 360-degree videos through the VR headset. Upon purchase, the IDOL 4S offers a free trial for Hulu Plus that will last for 45 days. There will also be a 30-day trial for Groove Music, as well as a free copy of the game Spartan Assault, according to Beta News.
