Bought this Alcatel PIXIÂ™4 a few days ago. After you turn it off a few hours later it turns itself on. The monkeys a Bell are no help fixing the problem. I can't have this turning on in the middle of a meeting. To me it is a piece of crapola.
I got it a few days ago, meaning I don't have a phone case yet. I'm new to the brand but I didn't expect it to have such a weak case. I dropped it once and there is already a dent on the phone. (It was a very weak drop. 3 feet max. Other brands I had withstood drops even higher and stronger). The sound quality is also pretty bad and there is a glitch with the power button while I am calling. When I press it, the screen would flick on for a second then turn back off. It takes a while until I can get the device to actually turn on. I'm a bit disappointed.
So brought this phone for my birthday last week and surprisingly enough was a good phone until about an hour ago when it turned itself off and now wont even load back up!! Yes battery is full!! Safe to say my phone is going back to the shop it came from when my husband gets in from work
I have this phone and it is a great phone however it could do with a bigger battery and or have rapid charging. The battery in my phone IS NOT REMOVABLE so unless I have a different phone, the specs on this site are incorrect.
I have an issue with backups which don't seem to work correctly and my memory card seems to be giving error reports on the phones internal diagnostics test.
I have this phone and am unable to move apps over to sd card, there is no option available... Any help on this? Thanks!

Can you be more detaild ..you dont care for it.. Because b4 turing it on may i will wait for more reviews.. I like phone with the big screens but work well for the money..
Excellent value for money big screen phone! Got one new for £65 on ebay after being impressed by wifes one! Good big screen smooth & fairly quick - not bad battery life for a big phone!. Have not experienced any running issues - android 6 seems quite stable. I reckon I would have to spend upwards of £250 or an iphone maybe to really better its features - I doubt you can beat it for the money! if this went down the loo I haven't lost an apple like £500!- in fact so impressed am getting daughter Alcatel pop4 for xmas - again a bargain.
Has got to be by far the worst phone I have ever owned apart from calls and text messaging absolutely nothing else on this device seems to work properly absolute waste of time and money

Before this phone, I had a Nokia Windows mobile phone witch sucks @$$. My carrier is Walmart family mobile. I brought this Pixi 4 phone two days ago from Wal-Mart, for $20.00 plus tax. It is not unlocked to other carriers. Just for Walmart family Mobile users. When I first got the plan, Walmart didn't have any cheaper alternative's that had Android OS,s. Now I'm glad they do. This phone was a major upgrade to what I had. And I am happy with my purchase. I would suggest that you get a 6gb sdcard or more to save apps because this version I have, only has 1gb internal storage, too save apps. Snapchat by itself takes up half that space. Maybe this phone cost more for people, that are buying it unlocked with more than 1 GB internal storage. But it works for me. I can run the same apps as the any other Android with marshmallow updates.
getting a second hand phone with removable battery & snapdragon 801 is a better option than buying this phone ....
