You just have to tell what is going on, not an answer that is not measurable as simple as that. You have to tell that i have no resources to do it as simple as that! This Alcatel company is like a zombie, selling phones without support, no ears to customers, they just don't care! But in fairness to them, this is common practice of most business, they are not the only one!

I will wait patiently for the next update ... But the sad part is that the hardware that we own has enough juice to suport the new Lolypop! The company is forceing you to buy newer devices to get newer software .... :(

Are they afraid of mediatek? Or they are partners! Telling the truth would be a disaster to them! Not like the Sony company that they don't give false hope, that is ethics! Even if they would loose the market!

I know they are a few beta kitkat roms for Idol X but they are full of bugs, just be patient if you don't change your phone eventually. Anyway kitkat is overrated.

This phone software is walking dead, no more upgrades, i have recently emailed Alcatel for the third time and they keep saying, it would be upgraded to higher OS, until now more than a year since its release no upgrade to kitkat but to lollipop, its a joke!!! Don't buy any model of all the Alcatel phones as they are lyers! Not like Sony they are honest enough to tell that they could not support it anymore

Shouldn't SAR for head be lower than SAR for body?In the description is the opposite!

This phone does not have proper dual SIM switch widget (on/off), as well as many if not all dual SIM phones. This fact defeats the point of having two cards for the most of us. Therefore, if you want to turn one card on/off from time to time, I strongly suggest using Google Play app called Dual SIM Switch...

I see that it was a mistake to buy this phone...
