It seems to be working alright but I can't find anything on what it improves like a version FAQ. 02001 was working good and this one is supposed to improve the user's experience - this is from the little explanation that popped up on the screen during the update.

This phone has a real nice screen.

Installing update 03001 right now. Seems to be going good so far. I'll update once it is finished.

I have used an iPhone for 5 years now, and decided to switch to android with a Samsung Galaxy S3. BIG mistake...after only 3 weeks I was ready to toss that phone in the garbage. Pan in Alcatel IdolX...I've never been more impressed with a phone! The speed is unparalleled, the battery life is absolutely fantastic, the screen resolution is amazing and the camera takes the most perfect photographs. On top of all of this, the Alcatel cost me $0 up front since its a relatively "unknown" brand. Step aside, Samsung, HTC and iPhone...as soon as Alcatel gets its name out there, I am sure it will become a flagship brand. 11/10. 6 stars. 150%. Golf claps.

I think I read on (I believe) 4pda.ru that there is a 4.4 beta going around of which some folks at Alcatel even don't know it exists (At least that's what I gathered through the auto-Google-translate option).

The most current version is still 4.2.2. I did receive an update a couple of weeks ago, but it still stayed at 4.2.2. The phone will notify you when firmware updates become available. You can also check for updates in settings, "about phone."

if you're looking for a value for money device, but don't mind some cheap material or a little lag here and there .. then you should consider this phone ..
but if you have a bit luxury of money, I would strongly recommend you go for Nexus 5 (DONT BUY ANY PHONES FROM OEMs, EVER .. they almost always do hang after a little while) ..

if you can wait a little bit longer, around 2-3 months .. you can see by end of year there will be a bunch of new phones, like Nexus 6 for example ..
if you must buy now, and from the set you have selected, then definitely i'll go with HTC One M7 .. and most certainly NOT SAMSUNG ..

note: I am not saying this is a bad phone, I am saying that the best android phones are always the nexus line ..
