Beacuse out ere in Europe it seems where stuck to 4.2.2 JB....And no update to be seen. According to Alcatel they plan to upgrade very soon, but they can tell exactly when....
hi friends....please share your valueable comment....
please tell me about
1) bobile perfomance
2) battery backup
3) jbl head fone quality
4) camera clearity
thanks in advance....
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!
My Alcatel X+ touch has damaged.
I downloaded repair center list from Alcatel Website & search service center's in Delhi/NCR area but no one repaired it. One person want Rs 10000 for repair.

Pls help me.

I can see that their is a update for this via phone. But cant see that in Smart Suit via PC.
I got my idol x+ from Flipkart and it was already pre-loaded with 4.4.2. I checked for updates last week and it was saying no updates. I was already in build 01010. Today it said I have an update and I downloaded 194 MB file and update completed successfully. But still the build is 01010. I do not know what is the update it did. I did notice that couple of new icons got added to the toggle menu. Not sure whether it improves the call drop issue.
