Since the summer 2017 system upgrade, the phone often freezes, like perhaps once a day, It also has connectivity problems (I have to switch from 4G/3G to 3G/2G to reset, and back again). It also had bad battery and became slow until I loaded up an app to spin down background apps and unloaded facebook and facebook messenger. While the connectivity problems and freezing still happens, it's now fastish (though still requires rebooting now and then) and the battery lasts a good while.
There was something pretty bad about that update.
This phone is as slow as a week in the jail and completely invisible to Windows. What you might call a "stealth phone", which would be great if you're looking for a communications device that no one else can detect and which will jealously refuse to share any media files contained within.
In short, this is the single biggest pile of shite in both the history of piles - and of shite.
Had this phone for 3 weeks. Worst phone I have ever owned. Keeps freezing. Takes forever to get into any apps if at all. Have to turn off phone tehn back on to receive texts sometimes. ABSOLUTE SH*T.
Got this model 3 mths ago and since then dying to write about it.MY PIECE OF ADVICE ....."NEVER BUY THIS BRAND".I have other brand before..Nokia,Sony.Samsung but this the worst..The sound quality is bad.it is not loud and even can decrease on its own.it can automatically off.sometime the keyboard ,you have to pressed it many times...it really make my blood rise..
The phone is shit,laggy af,freezes every 5 seconds,horrible blurry camera.Worst phone I ever owned by far,Alcatel=shit phones
This phone is a piece if shit. After 1 month of owning it the soft keys (home, back, recent apps) quit working and the auto rotate quit working, says "binary file error." The 2 year warranty is a joke also, I contacted Alcatel who says they doesn't support this phone anymore. Shit shit shit.

Have owned this phone for about 4 months. After about 1 month the bottom soft keys quit working (same thing happened on the ZTE avid trio this replaced) No support from Alcatel. Have been using a soft key app so phone is still usable.
Alcatel Pixi 3 4.5, 06 Sep 2017If you do a system reset it may give you a little more storage space... how do you do this reset ? (my pixi regularly gets off despite the battery being still 30% or 20%)
DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS PHONE. Worked for approximately three weeks.
To late to return to Best Buy for refund or exchange. Referred to Alcatel for manufacturer warranty. No resolution. I will NEVER purchase another Alcatel product.
Hi, everybody ! I'd just like to know how much SAR (EU) value is for Alcatel One Touch (8050D) Pixi 4 (6.0). Thanks
Getting several SMS notification, against a single one. This is very pathetic.
