Hi... I am using this phone since 2 months. Initially it came with Jellybean, then i received update of about 501 MB for Kitkat 4.4.2 update. Yes the update had raised many problem like freequent signal drop, keep on netowrk search etc. No bugs other than the network issue.
Now recently i got another update of about 194 mb and after this update all the bugs regarding the network issue are resolved and now i am very happy. even battery performance is very good. Now i am fully satisfied with this handset.
JBL headphone is of very high quality it beats the sony XB in ear headphones. sound quality after 194 mb update, now the headphone sound is very loud and clear.
While playing games the handset gets heated.. but it is ok. all the handset have this problem.
This is trial from this company it seems. This phone cannot even support a single minute call. Signal drops searching for network where even a basic model of other phones work better. Poor thing in mobile world. Instead of this, can a dual sim plus a tab to play games. Flithy one.

I have three major issues with the phone.
1) Signal drops and searches for network automatically, it happens very frequently.
2) Network shows R symbol even if we are not on Roaming.
3) Battery drains very fast and it hardly lasts for half a day with moderate usage.
I am on 4.4.2 and still facing these issues, otherwise its a very good phone.
Any fix for these issues?
Thanks mkn for your answer, I will decide if I buy it or not the following days.
Can anyone tell me that how to improve its GPS performance.its Location fixing is slower than MT6582.
Besides this device is using MT6592 but its performance is very poor in locking position.
I'm using this phone since 3 months,perfoance is awesom.Its a smart buy product.
Bought this phone in flipkart in India.phone came with kitkat 4.4.2 version.as we all know 4.4.2 has a problem with camera application running in the background continuously and draining battery.battery backup will be less compared to 4.4.2 version.this camera application problem is solved with version 4.4.4 update.hope alcatel rolls out 4.4.4 quickly. Also changing runtime from dalvik to ART will tremondously increase battery standby time in 4.4.4 .till we get 4.4.4 battery backup will be less compared to 4.4.2 .
Phone looks awesome.screen is terrific and feel is very good when we hold the phone in hand.
Output power is mentioned as 200mah on charger,but I think it is 2000 mah
Camera is very good
Sound from jbl earphones and speaker is very good.
Just got message for 194 MB OTA update.OTA updates only world with Wi-Fi
White phone looks good in YouTube videos,but it's not that good in real.black phone with metal rim will look good.bad decision
I have This phone bought from flipkart. The latest firmware is 4.4.2 with build# 01010. The OTA updates failed to install showing some errors Corrupt in files., but I did full update using the their Software on PC ( Mobile Upgrade S 4.1.7). As many people posted below the build number did not change after an update, may be its a patch.
The Phone performance is good and I am impressed with build quality with this price. Its a Good buy !!. For me,battery will last average 1 day on 3G/Wifi usage.
Does any one know how to disable CPU cores( It has octa core) which I guess by disabling some cores may improve battery life.
[deleted post]its easy dude
go to caller log or phone book
the go to notification bar
you will be able to see options to switch sim
hope it helps you

Hello everyone, it is very possible that I will buy this phone.
Tell me for sure if the update of the prebuild OS (4.2.1) results in problems. I searched internet there are mixed opinions. If there are problems as I seen like overheating, losing signal and others I will keep the prebuild OS as long as phone works good. I am afraid of updating cause my current phone after official update to 4.1 (lg optimus p880 hd) is nearly uselless. Available ram is less than 300mb without any application running and many other problems.
Thanks for you time!
