Alcatel Idol 4S ships with 'double tap to wake' and 'glove mode' options
Early this morning, I managed to get my hands on the Alcatel Idol 4S for T-Mobile. I'll be sharing a lot more throughout the day including an unboxing and impressions post, but for now just wanted to get this out.
The Idol 4S has "true" double-tap to wake and a super sensitive display. Found under Settings > Extras the feature mirrors that found on Lumia devices. It works just as expected with no tweaking necessary.
Additionally, the Camera button on the site works quite well too.
