Overall Packaging Presentation: It looks pretty good, given that this was the first VR case that was also a smartphone box, it would be good to get a smartphone that is this well presented. Give me this big box over a small Apple or Samsung one any day of the week. As for what is inside, it is the VR headset / phone case that is isn’t own protective shell.

Whats in the box…

  • Headset
  • Microfiber Cloth
  • Instruction Booklet
  • Head Strap

First Impressions: Ok, so we didn’t get the phone in with ours because at the end of the day we were just interested in the headset. Looking at it as a phone case as well as a VR headset, it has to be said that it is very impressive and full points to Alcatel for innovation. It looks amazing and getting the headset out of the case is a simple matter of pushing a button. Looking at the headset itself it looks very much like a Gear VR, but seems to weigh a little less (thanks to it not having the tech inside).

Features Review: Features are a little thin on the ground, but I suppose it’s best feature is that it is also a protective smartphone box as well as a headset. But other than that it doesn’t have much. A 3 point elasticated headset, memory foam face padding and at a push to screen touch buttons (but they only work with the IDOL 4).

Final Verdict: Going on the fact that most people will get this headset free because it is the case the smartphone comes in, this is a very impressive extra that a lot of people will enjoy. Would it be worth getting the phone just to get this headset? No, probably not. But if you were getting an IDOL 4 anyway this will be an awesome thing to receive it in.
