friends..What about official marshmallow update....i am from india..bought my phone (6045k) from UAE..
I am planning to update my phone...please guide me
Got one for 579aed from uae.souq and i think its a nice pick for that price..
Overall its a nice phone..!!
Jbl stereo, 32gigs,duel sim,2gb ram,built quality is good,reversible,sony exmor camera, 1yr warranty and no heating on moderate usage..
On the other hand....its lags little bit...only little..when playing high end games and running too many apps in background...
If u r on budjet....i suggest this phone...go for it!!
Do any one tell me what is SID(System Identification Number) for alcatel.
Thanks in advance
Install viperatmos on lollipop version, u will get the most amazing audio quality! Not marshmallow.
bojpop, 20 Sep 2016When we in Serbia gonna get Marshmallow?Get it from xda developers!you don't have to wait!it's really fun to learn to flash roms and apps ;)
Gheprge vasiliu, 07 Sep 2016My idol 3 was rooted so i had to get MM from xda developers... I flashed it via twrp and I hav... moreHow did you root your phone? Can you suggest some simple ways for it which probably may not affect the phone after being rooted? Thanks.
I can't hear the music when headsets are plugged into the phone. It was working before then it stopped. Can someone tell me how to fix it?
Got one for $99 from amazon and love the phone. Very light, thin, SD card, Marshmallow 6.0.1, NFC...no complaint...
Just love the phone,Alcatel idol 3 nothing wrong with it,just love it so much,I have the iPhone 6S plus but I play with this phone more,probably its not that heavy and perfect for one hand use.
I have had 3 of these now, the original and two warranty replacement devices I keep having issues. My first one stopped powering on after 3 months. Three months later my second phone would not charge anymore, and now my third one will not connect to the cellular network, the screen goes blue, and it powers off every 10 minutes or so. I take good care of my phones. They are always kept in a case with a screen protector and have no physical or liquid damage. It appears Alcatel has major quality control issues with their phones. I will never buy from them again. Do yourself a favor and avoid this phone.
Best phone yet for the price; Not sure about complaints from others but mine is working exceptionally well and the phone upgraded to marshmallow during setup. It is working as expected - Screen, speakers, battery are good with some lag occasionally but that is expected as it is not a game phone.
I've had the idol for about 3 or 4 months. Here's what I think. Picture quality is great. Dual speakers are good. Every once and a while I get some distortion, but no big deal. Good things about the phone:
Has swap function that allows phone to be used normally whether it's rightside up or upside down.
Double tap power opens camera. Very cool.
Camera top right corner placement is nice.
Wide angle 8mp front camera is fantastic for selfies.
DJ mix software installed fun to play with.
Gps works great and very little lag.
Bad things about phone:
Camera app will occasionally crash or not open, especially after marshmallow upgrade.
SD card read issues. Phone would crash when trying to save photos straight to card.
The phone is not very business friendly. Email is tricky. The default email app is junk. I'm still working on finding an aftermarket one I like. Multiple issues with group messaging. It takes a very long time to download images from groups. Constant text send failures to groups. Multitasking is ok, but lacking.
Overall I enjoy the phone. I think the user interface could be better and besides the business use stuff, it's well worth the price. Its a great phone for media but subpar for anything else.
mine overheats too. have had it 3 months and just had to send it in for warranty work.
I got the idol 4 and....yep!i camed back to idol 3!it's 1.5 years old but still have life in it....for me is better than the idol4(non s)much much better
This phone is garbage. Even for the price, it's still garbage. I probably could've paid less for an equal piece of garbage.
1. Overheats very easily. I've had to try a few different apps to fix this. None of them work.
2. Both cameras have sub-par quality.
3. Processor is very slow.
4. My biggest complaint is the phone just restarts whenever it wants to. Not while it's overheating. Not when I have too many apps open. Just restarts at any random time.
Not recommended for anyone outside the US. Updates received there a year ago still haven't reached other regions. Instagram videos don't play and it's noticeably laggy half the time. Read the updates fix this problem but still don't have any. 👎👎
