Omer, 17 Aug 201403001? Hah, I've been on 01001 for almost a year now, and it always says I'm up to date whenev... moreI just did my update now and it took approximately 15 minutes from beginning to end. 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 am really happy with my phone, but the GPS only works on Wifi.. it doesn't work on 3G. any ideas y?
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.
Omer, 09 Sep 2014Yeah, I too don't think 4.4 is out yet -add least no official release.Oops, I meant to write: AT least.
Omer, 09 Sep 2014Josh, didn't one of your fellow-Canadians claim he got 4.4? How did that story end? Was that t... moreHi Omer, good question. I never did figure out what that was about. Either he managed to get a Kitkat beta, or he was confused. Maybe he had 4.2.2 and thought it was 4.4.2. I'm definitely still on Jellybean.
Josh S, 08 Sep 2014Hi KA, The most current version is still 4.2.2. I did receive an update a couple of weeks ago... moreJosh, didn't one of your fellow-Canadians claim he got 4.4? How did that story end? Was that true or not? 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).
KA, 07 Sep 2014Can someone tell me what's the latest software version of this device is?
Mine is on 4.2.2 (... moreHi KA,
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."
zabe, 02 Sep 2014so , i am planning to buy a phone soon , my options are : HTC one m7 , s4 and the alcatel x , ... moreHi Zabe,
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 ..
Can someone tell me what's the latest software version of this device is?
Mine is on 4.2.2 (JellyBean) since i bought it, like a month ago .. so are there any updates available since then?
If yes, can anyone guide me how to get them ?
I used this phone since march 2014. I have a problem with my idol x. Bottom side of touchscreen not function. Is it hardware problem? What should I do?
Does anyone know what it is, after update after a few days will be full of very poorly, it charges but it takes 30min to 1%, try the Drude chargers and the same. The same thing happens when you turn off the light for notifications is steady. And when you turn it on it says system Ul stops. Thanks to the kennel ..
This is a nice handset to use. I purchased it week back. However I am having issues with respect to use of mailing applicaton "Good". Can Alcatel technical team help me with this. It pretty often displays the message is "Unfortunately, Good has stopped". I purchased this phone for business use, however with Good not functioning it is really a tough time. Is this a OS issue or manufacturing defect.
