Last month we showed you some of the best phones you could buy on Cricket Wireless, and one of our top picks was the Alcatel-made IDOL 4. It’s a fantastic price at it’s normal $199 price, but from today until the end of the year, Cricket Wireless is offering the IDOL 4 at half-price — just $99.
That $99 price tag will get you a device with a 5.2″, Full HD IPS display, Snapdragon 617 chipset, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of storage (with a microSD slot), and a 13MP rear camera. That all comes wrapped up in a metal/glass build that looks and feels premium.
The IDOL 4 also offers two things that few other budget devices can offer. First, it comes with a set of VR goggles and a collection of VR apps pre-loaded onto the phone. Second, it has some of the loudest speakers you’ll find on any device. With drivers mounted on the front and back, the IDOL 4 will always play audio without interference from a surface. Plus, with 3.6W drivers, sound will be loud and clear. There’s also the “boom key,” which can enhance the audio experience with just a single tap.
If you’re interested in picking up the IDOL 4, you can do so from Cricket Wireless.
