Have been using the Idol X since Sep-2013 without major problems. After the 4.4 KitKat update in Nov-2014, the phone was getting a bit unpredictable, many times reboot without obvious reasons. In Feb-2015, finally the phone shutdown by itself and not able to reboot anymore. Sent the phone for service 2 weeks ago, seems to be motherboard failure. The Idol X is a very high specs phone at mid range price, but I am not sure about its reliability (after repaired)....
Software stability: shit
I bought this phone for my fiancee from 5 months, 2 weeks ago it stopped working and I returned it back to the service center to fix it, after fixing, it worked slower and finally stopped working again, so I returned it back again to the service center, 1 day later they called me and asked to replace it with any other Alcatel or Sony mobile and pay the money difference.
so my advice: DON'T BUY THIS SHIT
No. Dont buy this phone. I bought it, my friend bought it, my neighbour, my uncle also bought it. We all have problems with it. Game performances are poor. Battery is poor. But screen and camera are AMAZING! That is the only thingh thats good about this phone. Design is also great.
I am looking to buy one im geting it for a cheap price do you recomend it
using this ph for 6 months...replaced one instrument and new one also showing signs of trouble...and at last its completely dead now....donot buy alcatel at all guys...

2 year since alcatel release this mobile and till now we didnt get kitkat .. wtf !!!
dont even think to buy this phone thats my advice
Pierre, 16 Dec 2014if you dont know the difference between 6040 and 6043 (X+), then it doesnt matter which one wi... moreIdol X+ does not have an expansion card slot. For me this is important. My Idol X has a 32GB micro SD in it that can hold a lot of music and photos.
By the way, the Dragontrail glass with oleophobic coating is amazing! Very few fingerprints and marks. It is very easy to clean with a cloth - much better than other phones I had.
There are some Games didn't work will inead answer please whyyyy!!!??
AnonD-341941, 17 Dec 2014i want to buy it anyone tell me about headphone quality??Brilliant
Chatterfox, 07 Jan 2015How did you upgrade it? Kitkat is available for TCL version if you look around. It's only recommended for experimented user if you have the Alcatel version.
Nickless, 16 Jan 2015Each time it says wrong password or user name .. but both are right and open on other mobiles ... moreI don't know man. As far as I can remember, the set-up was pretty straightforward.
