Thanks guys for sorting my post out x

I can't find any mention of a 4+, except on the argos website and obviously, the tesco. Is this the idol4 with vr bundle.

Even alcatel don't list it. They have a 4 and 4s. They do have a pop 4 plus.

This is listed as having 12 and 8 meg cameras, which neither of the idol 4's do. Alcatel lists them, probably mistakenly, as both 16.

I think everyone's been cribbing off each other and spread the word that there's such a phone as the 4+. It's just the idol 4.

I have this phone. There are many things to like about it. The fit and finish is nice, it's reasonably attractive to look at and the screen is really very good indeed. The phone basically run stock Android and is all the better for it; think of it like a budget Nexus phone, although with generally higher quality build.

It's not all good though. It seems to have issues with internal SD memory management; it seems to run out of space for no reason, even with my media on the external SD card. Lastly, and this is the killer for me, this the very aggressive compression profile when playing audio. The volume of songs is changed mid-song and the volume between tracks is all over the place. I believe this is related to the Waves Audio app bundled with the phone, which cannot be uninstalled. The camera is also quite poor and quite "creative" in how it interprets colour and white balance and VR is a waste of time.

So overall, for £150 it's a great phone. I think I'm on the scale when it comes to audio, but if such things don't seem to bother you then it's a nice package.

​Hi, does this have adoptable storage? Where it formats the memory card and uses as internal. Thanks.

I believe this is called Logical Volume Management (LVM). Would be interested to know this too. All modern Android phones should support LVM.
