Had this phone for a few months at one point, and very early on the touch screen became so unresponsive it was near impossible to use. It opened apps on it's own and it even slid the lock screen's "Slide to unlock". Touching in one area on the screen would cause a reaction of erratic movements or response in another point. If you can get past that, the actual phone was incredibly slow. It took minutes to open any app, even the pre-installed ones (e.g. the camera). Easily the worst phone I've ever used.
Am hereby i Just had a Batter Problem and i went to Replace new Batter insider the phone then my phone is not working.. if i put the changer in only Alocate idol mini that was show...
This is probably the worst phone I have ever used. There are so many issue with this phone, and the most annoying issue is lagging. It takes so much time to open an app or text a message. I have reset this phone for like a thousand times now, just to make it faster again. Your newly transfered files such as pictures & music doesn't appear in the library sometimes. There's also an issue where some messages are received a bunch of times like text-bomb. I recommend you not to buy this phone but if you do, don't install facebook, instagram, twitter, or any other apps that run in the background. It'll be almost unusable.

komito, 23 Feb 2016Can someone assist me, my phone has refused to install apps
You spent your phone memory Therefore uninstall an application To be able to install a new
I did factory reset with my idol mini phone, thereafter I attempted to download apps but it failed or rather refused, what do I do to make it do the applications' downloads?
I just like the back camera of this phone but the rest I fuckin' hate it. Phone keeps on lagging, apps keeps crashing, and some other apps can't be installed easily. I hate it but I don't have any other choice. Other phones are very nice but sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo EXPENSIVE....$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
Terrible phone, So laggy, hardly any apps can be downloaded due to the 2GB storage. The camera is horrible. Opening an app takes about 10 seconds and the apps often crash. I'm going for something a bit higher-end soon. If you want something really basic and you son't want to download apps this phone is OK. 2/5 🌑🌑🌕🌕🌕
Worst phone I've owned. I had it for less than 6 months when it started lagging so badly. It literally takes me 10 minutes to try and send one short text message because it takes forever to open the app, forever to type a single letter, and half the time it thinks you're holding down the letter keys so it gives you the number. Then you have to backspace a bunch of times, but it thinks you're holding that down so it backspaces like 2 lines before it recognizes that you're not holding it down. Aside from that, it takes forever to open apps and once they are open you can count on them crashing at least once, and it basically takes a really really long time to switch between tasks i.e. going from an app to the home screen, or from texting someone to the texting menu. I don't mean like a 2 second delay, I mean like 5 long seconds. The camera is awful too, especially front facing. My face literally looks pixelated.
I have read comments about this phone, i have it too now its more than 2 years, my phone is still working like charm, baterry life excellent it does lag sometimes but fcs its android...
This is an awful phone! It's been lagging ever since I got it. I was never quite satisfied with it. Over the time, things were getting worse. It was having problems recognizing new songs after I had transfered them from my laptop so I used to have to restart is a couple of times so that they can show up. Same thing goes for pictures, sometimes after I'd restarted my phone, it wouldn't even show any pictures in the gallery, it would say that there were no pictures to show, and other times it would only show 2-3 albums out of 10. Among other things, recently it even stopped recognizing my SIM card. This is such a pain in the ass. And the most recent issue is that the three command buttons(?), such as the command for home screen, going back etc. don't work anymore! I'm so done with this phone, I've regretted buying it even since the first week I got it. Never buying anything from Alcatel again.

remove the taping on the upper part of the battery. loose the screws there and pull out the plug.
