> In reply to dexter1882 @ 2015-03-06 07:40 from IVIZ - click to readHi Dexter1882,
I had exactly the same problem with my alcatel idolX. Worked perfectly well until I decide to do the upgrade to 4.4.2 which actullay never worked and left the phone totally hectic and in android 4.3 version. Anyway.
I wanted to know what the repair center told you and how much it has cost you. My phone is obviously out of warrantee as I bought it in December 2013 and it just crash yesterday.
Also I was thinking to find a class action as many people seeem to have the same problem.
Thanks for any little feedback you could give.

I have one Alacatel Idol X since 8 months, It was used by my dagther for personal use. It works fine two or three months, 4.2 Jelly Bean android. After that, begins to rise temperature, then camera autofous doesnt work anymore, sometimes it seems to be crazy with the display. Conclusion: it is a real shit, dont buy it.

Have been using the Idol X since Sep-2013 without major problems. After the 4.4 KitKat update in Nov-2014, the phone was getting a bit unpredictable, many times reboot without obvious reasons. In Feb-2015, finally the phone shutdown by itself and not able to reboot anymore. Sent the phone for service 2 weeks ago, seems to be motherboard failure. The Idol X is a very high specs phone at mid range price, but I am not sure about its reliability (after repaired)....

My experience:
Specs: ok
Performance: ok
Hangs: yes
Software stability: shit

I bought this phone for my fiancee from 5 months, 2 weeks ago it stopped working and I returned it back to the service center to fix it, after fixing, it worked slower and finally stopped working again, so I returned it back again to the service center, 1 day later they called me and asked to replace it with any other Alcatel or Sony mobile and pay the money difference.

so my advice: DON'T BUY THIS SHIT

No. Dont buy this phone. I bought it, my friend bought it, my neighbour, my uncle also bought it. We all have problems with it. Game performances are poor. Battery is poor. But screen and camera are AMAZING! That is the only thingh thats good about this phone. Design is also great.

> In reply to Pierre @ 2014-12-16 13:32 from gLbT - click to readIdol X+ does not have an expansion card slot. For me this is important. My Idol X has a 32GB micro SD in it that can hold a lot of music and photos.

By the way, the Dragontrail glass with oleophobic coating is amazing! Very few fingerprints and marks. It is very easy to clean with a cloth - much better than other phones I had.
