Bought this for SR1099 ($293) at Hyper Panda Saudi Arabia. Initial impressions are quite good, excellent screen and body though the model available is the dual sim (32gb no SD) and was the same for the 4.7 model as well. Performance is mostly fluid, a few snags here and there but nothing too noticeable. Camera seems excellent (photos at least), battery seems to hold it's charge well (needs more experience) and sound is of course excellent.
Drawback = Google Voice Does Not Work.
Google Voice will NOT intercept out bound phone calls.

Ali Sabry, 21 Jul 2015I've used this phone for a month, I'm a big Alcatel fan, but this phone is a step back for the... moreYou mean audio is drawback? I have idol 2S and Idol 3, and my idol 3 have much, much better audio quality...
I've used this phone for a month, I'm a big Alcatel fan, but this phone is a step back for the company, design, build quality & external speaker are the only advantages of this phone
1. Average battery performance
2. Audio decoding is awful ( hearing glitches while you are playing music)
3. Software instability after Ota update had to reset the phone
4. Not a high performance device, a better processor should have been used
5. Overheating problem while charging
6. Awful JBL headphones included ( doesnt sound JBL at all)
I had to revert back to my old Sony Z3 Tablet, Alcatel has to reconsider at least fixing SW issues and audio decoders
Hi, this is an excellently featured mobile phone, Is it available in Kenya at the moment?
If yes, where can I get it from?
This is an excellent phone. Its fast and lots of cool features. And it retails for a very low price. I've had this phone for a few days now and no complaints what so ever.
