The second didn't...in the beginning but then it came up. It's a design issue because of the chip placement. It's too close to the display and in time it starts showing like a square. It doesn't impact functionality thou. Next Idol will be better. Although I use an IPhone 6s, I'll still get an Idol 4 as a secondary phone. Great design and specs and quite different form factor unlike the competition.
Donaldson, 09 Jun 2016Just got that official marahmallow update!Was it OTA and what size was the update? I'm still waiting for my 6.0.1 but i'm from Finland so i guess i need to wait a little bit longer.

The white spots look like a square actually, so I wonder if it isn't the result of a chip overheating underneath the display. I didn't have the problem with my first Idol 3 though,the one that I lost.
For the rest, I'm still quite happy with the phone.

AnonD-536981, 13 May 2016Has it received Marshmallow already? I't mid May2016, does it have official MM ? Thanks.Alcatel has officially comfirmed on their FB page that both Idol 3 models (5.5 & 4.7) will receive Marshmallow with rollout starting end of May so couple of weeks and it should be with us :)
I had this phone for 9 months so far and it worked perfectly, never have any problems with it, works like a charm, I have all updates installed from 5.0.2.002 to 5.0.2.007 and phone just keeps to be better...
Great screen, and sound from JBL speakers are awesome....Now I just wait for Marshmallow update to come and make this phone even better...

I replaced the screen on warranty last month and the white spots are here again. I think maybe it's a problem with alcatel's tehnicolor display.
Purchased one and already sent it back to replace the screen: white spots in the lower third, visible - and annoying - on white and light color backgrounds, so technically always... Very sad about this... Talked to somebody who has replaced the screen 3 times already, white spots are coming back after 2-3 weeks, despite the screen replacement...
Can somebody confirm that this is a global issue? If so I would sell my device, don't want to replace the screen every month or so... Very disappointed, not to much devices under 5"...
Hi can you help me i bought this phone but one day it switch it off then when i try to switch on it doese not do anything, so please can you tell me where is the problem?

I just took a look in a carrier store, and it looks very cute, for me its tiny but it has something that looks nice :)
AnonD-433122, 19 Mar 2016Will this Phone get marshmallow update? ThanksYes, it's been confirmed by Alcatel on their Facebook page but schedule is still unknown although Alcatel representative has said Alcatel is already working on/testing 6.0 update for Idol 3 (both 4.7&5.5 variations). I have 4.7 variant and honestly i never thought it will get Marshmallow update so this is great news! :)
