One of the best 2014 phones in this class (6037Y, Idol 2), very stable. Unfortunately, broke my LCD+touch screen, looking for a new one, from Alcatel or Samsung.
Mine got a huge dead spot across the screen as soon as the 1 year warranty was up. I had to get an rotation app that allowed me to continue to use it. I'm now at the 24 month of ownership and I can barely hear whenever anyone calls me, and it's also started to randomly malfunction.
I've kept this phone in pristine condition and it seems to be failing regardlessly. I don't think I'll be purchasing another alcatel phone at all

Marko, 23 Jun 2016How to upgrade my Idol 2 from 4.2 to 4.4? It keep saying that phone is up to date.Did you find out how to upgrade it?
I have had this phone for a little more than a year and it started bugging recently,not bugging like not wanting to work or anything,but just starts typing random letters and doimg random things in not specified moments...can someone tell me whats the problem?
Still having it. Working like a charm. Soon to be replaced by Hwei P9 lite and goes to the hands of my wife. Dropped many times to ground (floor, cocret, fine sand beach) and showered one time on bad weather. Nothing happened. No scrach on glas just scraches on the back plastic besause of rouhgh dust. Software - Alcatel did a good job on this one.

First, try changing with another micro USB cable
make sure that you didn't choose "do not charge while plugged into a computer.
Try wiping your cache partition, or do factory reset.

your phone is infected with the virus ' Trojan horse ' '
