Lilly, 23 Dec 2016yes thats true...and very awful...supports only edge(2G)... very bad If you have a pixi 4 5inch screen this is a 5045x and is a 4g phone works well with YouTube etc in Dublin I'm on ID Network good 4g signal so far quite impressed Jdub.
Otunba, 16 Dec 2016What model number have the 4G version?
The phone is good for a budget phone. The battery last up to 6 hours on 3G and on constant usage. It can maintain your battery reserve a whole day plus more ifbu only use it for calls and messages. I love the phone especially it's fast and don't lag and its has a wider screen. Buy it if you want a budget phone. I wish i can use this phone for a year.

I 've bought Alcatel Pixi 4 (5) 5045D (dual SIM)
Display looks awfull, you can se pixels. Viewing angles sucks. Camera is average, lack of autofocus gives alot of trouble when you are trying to take a photo. Colors in photos looks washed out. It's soooo hard to take off the cover when you want to chahnge SIM or micro SD. Battery acts weird... when you empty it to 17%, the remaining 17% drains in just a few secods.

li -ion batteries work better when you are not used to the end 0%,but most to 25 % and then put the battery to charge75-90% , ( why?)
lithium-ion batteries have a rated lifetime of somewhere between 500 and 1,500 charge cycles.
so if it reach 100% or less then 25% then it lose 1 cycle.(the user runs it down all the way to zero before recharging) can degrade to 70 percent of its original capacity in 300-500 cycles
With a DoD of 25 percent, where the user plugs it in as soon as it gets to 75 percent remain, that same battery could be charged up to 2,500 times before it starts to seriously degrade.
Charge a little bit whenever you can.
Lithium-ion batteries don't respond well to being charged all the way up and then run all the way down. They take much better to little bits of charge here and there.
What's far more dangerous to a battery's well-being is heat. Lithium-ion batteries despise heat.
Battery consumption depends on the applications you have installed on the phone and working in the background even if you do not use the phone. such as; facebook instagram messenger if you delete these apps and use them through the browser , thus saving up to 40% of the battery (day)life , the display put on minimum brightness and wi - fi, bluetooth, use it when you need.

Battery started losing its charge, now won't hold a charge overnight, charged faster using USB game and TV port, won't charge even 5% overnight when plugging into an electric wall socket. I've tried various wall chargers and same thing. So could it be the battery is dying? I have only had this phone 4 months.
Must say its not a bad phone just don't have WiFi only had it few days as my old phone was iPhone 6 son kept breaking screen so bought this an am surprised on how well it works battery not that bad but its not really good but I'm gutted don't have 4g keep losing signal pictures ain't too bad either to say its a budget phone am happy with it so far don't he
The only drawback that I have found on the phone is that when you reach the 15% battery is discharged 1% every 5 seconds.
I've already changed it twice and it's the same problem.
Has anyone else had the same thing?
leo, 06 Dec 2016As far as I know this is the first update since I brought the phone (September)*bought
