    I know I'm late to this subject and I apologize for it but aren't the DTEK60 and Alcatel 4s idol exactly the same?

    No, they are built on the same "platform" but there are major differences. The idol 4s is more of a midrange devices and I believe is not even sold in North America.
    Notably, the DTEK60 has snapdragon 820 while the idol has a 652.
    The camera is also different, they run on different network bands, the DTEK60 has more RAM.

    But if you need parts they will use the same as the idol 4. I sent my phone to BlackBerry for repair of display and the parts were listed as from the idol on the receipt

    I don't understand, you realize that BlackBerry doesn't make their own parts and never has?
    It's BlackBerry android and it's a top of the line device. The idol is a mid range and doesn't have the BlackBerry android os.

    Well, I purchased an Idol 4S just over a week ago. OK, the processor is not quite as fast, the ram is only 3gb instead of 4gb and the camera is not as good, but this phone is one heck of a beast for £240 + tax.

    I know the software on the 60 is secured and updated fairly regularly, but at nearly twice the price? I will stick with this TCL beast.

    Coming from a Z30, I had to load up Cobalt 's goodies, so I've still got my BlackBerry look and feel. And I can assure you that the build quality is second to none. In fact the exterior is no different from the Dtek 60, except from, perhaps the back, which on the Idol is Gorilla glass.
