Avoid buying this phone..Have been using it since past eight months and it has regularly given me trouble..it is a good looking phone but just not dependable..the metallic finish on the edges gives it a premium look but the ugly white plastic frame below the finish has started showing up in four months time..the phone works better in indoors and there seems to be a problem in the antenna circuits..particularly when you are travelling..the phone overheats when apps are running..And the service network of Alcatel is absolutely good for nothing..Go for the phone only if you have a standby handset..

Alcatel does not make any updates for their phones even issued in 2014 ..... something very unfortunate. I will not buy any of the products of this company again

If that was the case the phone just wouldn´t be able to stand out half a day....With this power hungry processor it ust wouldn´t b possible at all.
The problem cames to poor power management of the ROM, also also the Mediatek processor which isn´t not much eficient...
By far this isn´t a reaalible phone , mine went to repairment after just over 6 months...Fortunately under the warranty. They changed the batery and also the mother board...Lets see how it handles from now on....
Hi..first of all the alcatel comes with the battery power of 1000mah instead of 2500mah which is the main cause for quick battery drainout and reg.the update of 135mb it is not going to change the firmware version as well the build no. if you already have 4.4.2 . The camera gives the better pics at day time only. The signal dropouts and over heating gives more irritation of regular use.
The better use of this phone is as media player.
the phone speaker is on left and right side is for mic like iphone .. the phone is amazing never lag or hang for for 3 months using all day only thing bad is battery life time not good but ok for little apps and classic games
1)root ur alcatel phone
2)download droidsansfallback.ttf (to downlad this ttf you search telugu font for android as in google or mail me to email@example.com)
3)by using root file manger or es file manger goto ./system/fonts/ find droidsansfallback.ttf rename as droidsansfallback.ttf.bak then paste ur new downloaded droidsansfallback.ttf in fonts folder exit and reboot
4) rooting means avoiding warranty its ur own risk above steps worked for me (alcatel one touch flash)
Finally the update for Kit Kat has arrived to the EMEA region. At least the offical update, for 4.4.2....
It works fine altough the batery life could be better. The Xperia E4 dual that i gave to my wife is a lot better.
9/10, if it weren´t for the battery. i don´t think this one will ever get lollipop unfortunately :(
