Anybody used it with skype video call? If ita good i will buy this phone.
Is the screen scratch resistant and how does it perform when used as a modem i.e downloadspeeds? Thanks in advance.
What is average battery life? Battery capacity sounds promising, but it depends on hardware quality. Best would be if someone can compare it with well known devices like Samsung. Samsung Galaxy S Duos seems to be good alternative, but battery life is is criticised by users.
Tom, 15 Nov 2012What is RAM size? In most shops in our country (CZ) is writtent only 512MB but in other countr... moreThere is only one version with 1gb RAM. That version with 512MB is a wrong description.
What is RAM size? In most shops in our country (CZ) is writtent only 512MB but in other countries I see quite often 1GB. It is in presale here, so noone is sure. Is it just typo or dos Alcatel have two versions for different markets?

keysmith, 11 Nov 2012It looks as a good choice, but there are reports that this device has 'weak' WiFi reception. A... moreNot Wi-Fi weak reception even very strong compared to other models. MTK chip has a some problems with reception but It's very easy to fix that. With latest firmware update device is more stable.
Best android phone i ever had, i had 3 other phones before, a galaxy appolo, a galaxy ace, and lastone was a galaxy s i9000, thisone is far mor supurior, much faster, not to many modded on the rom. My phone boots up in nearly 10-15 secs (pin code included) wich is superfast
Good battery life, easy switching between sims for calling/texting, bot are realy online.
Very good GPS (i use it every day for work)
only downside for me, there i no root (yet) for this phone. this will unlock it's full potential, this way i can remove all unwanted stock apps.
Very good phone, good value for it's money, far more supurior then most phones from brands like samsung / HTC / Sony for the same price
Excellent phone. No problems found in first 2 weeks, except that GPS seems to be somewhat less accurate than my previous HTC HD Mini.
Here is written that is dual sim standby but on specification of processor in features is written :
Best-in-Class, Most Complete Dual-SIM Solution
● No lost calls on either SIM
Can anybody try it and answer is it dual standby or active. 10x
slobodan, 11 Nov 2012Alcatel OT-997D or samsung galaxy s7562 duos please which is betterNaturally that Alcatel is undoubtedly a better choice.
It looks as a good choice, but there are reports that this device has 'weak' WiFi reception. Also early firmware has some issues (reboots often). Not all European languages are supported (f.e. no Greek Menu at the moment). Let hope it will mature in future firmwares.
