ntdl, 20 Oct 2014it hasnt been a year since i owned idolx and the problems keep coming from auto shutting down,... moreYou probably have to replace the phone, it is defective.
I have Idol X for 6 months already, no single issue mentioned.
No overheating at all/ even when I use it as GPS in car for hours (hooked to car's power), it runs just slightly warm.
I optimized it with GS monitor app., used static wifi IP, it keeps power for more that 3 days a single charge with mediocre use. So it can't produce lot of heat at all.
M Srag, 21 Oct 2014You are dreaming dude ! , IDOL X+ at some regions didn`t get the kitkat yet ! and what was upg... morewell i know about that, n we will probably never get that L update cuz alcatel support sucks, but manufacturers actually can just skip one version n jump to another one!
i reply to you with "or maybe they looking for android L..." cuz u asking what does it mean by high OS, well L is high.
There is an existing update to the Idol x + to kitkat 4.4.2 (India)
I have updated it, and it works perfectly fine. There are small issues mainly with the UI.
(1. The color of the network signal is always white irrespective of what you choose.
2. The camera widget does not work from the lock screen.)
There is another update... Currently it's in progress...
Alcatel onetouch idol X 6040D did not have bangla support.so plz tell me how can possibol support 'Bangla'.
Becous i need Bangla.
GROBARIZACIJA, 20 Oct 2014or maybe they looking for android L...You are dreaming dude ! , IDOL X+ at some regions didn`t get the kitkat yet ! and what was upgraded was to 4.4.2 not even 4.4.3 nor 4.4.4 ! so how could IDOL X would get Android L ! no way !
bryanjay420, 13 Oct 2014if you have knowledge in flashing you can upgrade to 4.4.2 kitkat version for TCL (same specs ... moreactually, tcl n alcatel r the same brand, tlc version is for chinese market n dont have some features like google play store etc.
ntdl, 20 Oct 2014build in. need to fix that at service centreNo, you can order battery online, and there are video tutorials on YouTube how to disassemble back cover and replace battery.
Dear All ,
I have sent Alcatel before ( 3 months ago) asking about upgrading Idol X to Kitkat and they replied it`s underdevelopment but they can`t confirm specific date which means they intended to upgrade it to kiktak .
Anyway I have sent them 2 days ago again asking the same question but the answer has been changed from Kitkat to a higher Android OS !!!! here below their reply ;
Dear M Srag,
We have plan to upgrade ONE TOUCH IDOL X to higher Android OS which has been under development. As we have many ONE TOUCH IDOL X shipment to different regions around the world and each shipment will be with different Cu like 6040D-2XKSKH1, 6040D-2XKSKH2, etc, we will start to ugprade IDOL X to to higher OS from one Cu to another.So not all IDOL X will be upgraded at the same time. And we can't tell definite day for your IDOL X.
So Does it mean that we will not get Kitkat ? what does it mean by Higher OS ! is it 4.3 only !!! or it will be 4.2.2 bit with higher bulid version ! mine is 01005 .
I don`t know !!!!!!
it hasnt been a year since i owned idolx and the problems keep coming from auto shutting down, auto restart,battery overheat,there is a white light on the top left but it is not charging,lagging when im on 3g/4g but mostly the selling point of the phone is the camera, lightweight,friendly user handling and that is it. idolx also still with jelly beans and report shows on their web that this phone might not get any upgrades. but that is still unsure as if now only what's confirmed lollipop released few days ago and this phone is still at jellybeans.
i hope the review will help others to reconsider other phones.
it a great phone. but not for primary phone as it will trouble you with so many trips to service centre. might want to have a look at idolx + or idol2
stellarness, 26 Aug 2014hi, i got my idol x about two months ago and i love it! the only problem is that last night it... moreDid you manage to vet it to turn on? Mind would freeze Anand i would hold tge power to turn it off and it would work for a bit and it would freeze all over again. It would freeze on the title and then it said its unresponsive and to reset so i would click reset but nothing happens. Restarted the phone and now it won't turn on, just a black screen wuth the white light in the corner when connected
I bought Idol X few days ago. Unfortunatley, its microphone is not working fine. When I call someone, he can't hear me properly as there is noise. Also when recording the video the phone does'nt capture the sound. It makes noise. Voice recording also the same. I bought it from Danube Supermarket Jeddah. Does anyone know the service center in Jeddah?
is it possible to remove the cover to change the battery , or it's built in?
and if that possible how i can remove it ?
i have a problem related my idol x phone,
every time i connect it to the pc it shows the pop up massage usb mass storage and mtp charger only,
when i select mass storage it doest shown in the pc!
Is it a problem in it?
