PhilipTourGuide, 03 Jul 2016Hi guys! Does anybody have an idea of the average stand-by time or talk time within 3G or 2G? ... moreI am not a big talker, I have this phone for a week and I must say that I'm very pleased by it. I had before a Samsung Galaxy S4 mini and I was always looking for a charger.
I can tell you that you can use it 24 hours, with wi-fi on with no problems. Quite cheap, I am waiting to see if after 2-3 months everything it's still the same.
Hi guys! Does anybody have an idea of the average stand-by time or talk time within 3G or 2G? Best would be by experience...
Still no Marshmallow for model 6039y... i guess Alcatel forgot that they have released Idol 3 for Europe too ._. I hope Alcatel didn't plan to only release it in US and that's it?!? Come on!

Bought this phone last week. It cost £72 second hand in new condition. It is an absolutely amazing handset. The specs are high, and performs as well as any high end device. The screen is crystal clear and viewable from all angles without fading. It's fast, the camera is superb, the battery lasts a day with normal use. My only criticism is 8gb internal memory is not enough. Although you can use a micro SD. If you're low on cash but still need a good performing handset then you will not be disappointed with this one. My previous handsets have been Galaxy S6 edge plus, Xperia Z5, LG G4 and this is almost as good as all of them. No I'm not drunk, this is a quality handset.
I think this battery would be classed Li-Po because their website states it's "softpack".
Hi all, love my idol 3 4.7 only problems: can't end the call after its over, and whit wifi on, people hear me whit glishes in hands free call, love the sound, my screen is fine after 1 month of use, no problems there, totally worth it vs zen fon. and im lumia user until idol 3.
i am a technician and i have used more then 100 phones in my life.... idol 3 is yet the best phone... for a cheap phone, it is very fast in processing and internet... overheats at times but only when downloading too much from the net... off the data and it cools down fast... camera is amazing... the perfect cheap phone

The second didn't...in the beginning but then it came up. It's a design issue because of the chip placement. It's too close to the display and in time it starts showing like a square. It doesn't impact functionality thou. Next Idol will be better. Although I use an IPhone 6s, I'll still get an Idol 4 as a secondary phone. Great design and specs and quite different form factor unlike the competition.
Donaldson, 09 Jun 2016Just got that official marahmallow update!Was it OTA and what size was the update? I'm still waiting for my 6.0.1 but i'm from Finland so i guess i need to wait a little bit longer.

The white spots look like a square actually, so I wonder if it isn't the result of a chip overheating underneath the display. I didn't have the problem with my first Idol 3 though,the one that I lost.
For the rest, I'm still quite happy with the phone.

Great screen, and sound from JBL speakers are awesome....Now I just wait for Marshmallow update to come and make this phone even better...
