Alcatel Idol 4S with Windows 10 review: in pictures

At just $288, the Alcatel Idol 4S is a solid piece of hardware and does well at running Windows 10. There are some minor performance issues with Bluetooth and the fingerprint scanner, but if you like the Live Tile interface then its one of the best available to hold you over until a possible Microsoft Surface phone.
