Deal: Get an Alcatel IDOL 4S with Windows 10 for $288 from T-Mobile

There is a fairly decent deal on Alcatel's Windows 10 Mobile offering, the IDOL 4S, from T-Mobile for those interested in buying a high-end Windows phone in the US.

You can get the phone for $288, down from its original $432 price-tag. However, this will be the SIM locked version of the device from T-Mobile as opposed to the unlocked one which goes for $470 at the Microsoft Store. Users have the option to either pay in full or split it in a monthly charge of $12. You will also receive a SIM starter kit from the telecom operator for an additional $20 if you're not an existing customer.

For the uninitiated, here are the specs of the device:

CPU Quad-core Snapdragon 820, dual 2.15GHz Kryo, dual 1.6GHz Kryo
GPU Adreno 530
Display 5.5", 1080p, 401ppi, AMOLED
Body 153.9x75.4x7mm, 152g
Camera 21MP, Front 8MP
Video 4K - 30fps, Front 1080p - 30fps
Aperture f/2.2, Front f/2.2
Camera features PDAF, dual-LED flash, Front LED flash
Storage 64GB, expandable to 256GB
Battery 3000mAh

The device is pretty capable and is the first (and only) Windows phone that supports VR. For those seeking productivity, The IDOL 4S has you covered, as it supports Continuum and receives regular updates too. While its camera may leave some room for improvement, it makes up for its shortcomings in the performance department. Check out our review for the device if you haven't already.
