If you're still looking for solid deals on any remaining Windows phones on the market, Microsoft is currently offering up a pretty solid deal on the Alcatel Idol 4S. The Windows 10 Mobile-powered phone can currently be picked up for just $199 at the Microsoft Store, which is a hefty step down from its $470 list price.
For the money, the Alcatel Idol 4S comes unlocked and should work fine on AT&T or T-Mobile. Inside, the phone is powered by a Snapdragon 820 chip and 4GB of RAM. It also packs a 5.5-inch FHD AMOLED display a 3,000 mAh battery with support for Quick Charge 3.0, and a fingerprint sensor. A VR headset, one of the Idol 4S main selling points, is also included in the box.
There's no indication that this is a time limited deal on the Microsoft Store listing, so you've likely got some time to make up your mind. Still, this is the best price we've seen from Microsoft on the Idol 4S. Given the state of Microsoft's mobile efforts as of late, this won't hit impulse buy territory for everyone, but it should still be a solid deal for fans.
