Worst phone I've ever had. Has to be charged twice a day and I rarely use it. Mobile data keeps switching on and costing me money because I am over my limit. Be glad to get rid of it
I cant remember my password has any one any suggestions. They want me to send it back to repair it but they will wipe all my memory off!! Sorry now i put any security on it.
I paid $99 for this phone and it is the shittest phone I have ever owned. As soon as I hit 15% battery it's completely flat in not even a minute. It resets itself a few times a day and it lags really bad. I really regret buying this phone and unfortunately I'm stuck with it for a while because I can't afford to buy another phone.....

I am really impressed with this phone. It's very easy to use and the graphic quality is amazing. I love the screen size it's just right and the choice of wallpapers etc are endless. It's the cheaper choice of phone but the quality actually far out weighs the price. I would really recommend this phone if you don't want to pay to much but want a phone that looks more expensive with simple versatility and great HD quality. 10/10
AnonD-716902, 19 Nov 2017alcatel is owned by nokia and has been for quite a while also it appears that there are two se... moreThere are indeed two versions, 3g/4g and maybe that covers the difference in battery longevity too.
What a mixed bag this phone is, battery life is non existent, even on minimal brightness, and background apps turned off. In built speaker reasonably loud, audio from headphone socket non existent. Screen good for standard, LCD, but you need constant mains charging. As for the inbuilt FB client, it fails to download update, even if you update manually, it works until you power off phone. Camera, well no auto focus and tragic, oddly front facing camera although probably only in reality 2mp seems to fare reasonably well. Not much lag in most use, but shows when you play games, even video stutters on occasions. Only major issue I guess for price is battery. Agree with another here who said Pixi 4 better, yet probably has better build quality than Pixi. An odd mix of semi good and downright inferior components me thinks.
Sandrs, 17 Mar 2018Joy launcher keeps coming up on my phone when I don't want it how do I get rid of itJoy Launcher is a common thing on Alcatel Phones and it tries to install itsel. ItÂ’s a pain because it uses loads of resources like your RAM and slows your phone down. You can get rid of it by doing the following:
First go on to Â‘Play StoreÂ’ App. When it opens go to the 3 lines one on top of the other (usually top left or right corner) tap on the 3 lines and then scroll down to settings, tap on settings, on the next screen tap on Â‘Auto-Update AppsÂ’, you will then get 3 options, tap on the Â‘Do Not auto-update AppsÂ’. You need to do this otherwise when its removed it will download and install itself again when you remove it if you let Play Store Auto Update.
Now to Remove it. Go back to Play Store and in the Seach Box type in Â‘Joy LauncherÂ’. It will then search for it. When you find it, tap on it and it will usually give you 2 options which are Â‘UninstallÂ’ and Â‘UpdateÂ’, Click on Â‘UninstallÂ’. It will then Uninstall and thatÂ’s it gone.
Hope that helps.
Alcatel U5 has to be the most annoying handset I've ever owned ... Left overnight it just switches itself off and is highly temperamental in when / whether to boot back up. Sound volume too low (even at maximum). Bought it as a short term measure and it can't be short enough in my opinion .... My advice, don't bother - pay a bit more and get something decent.

Good phone but need to toughen front screen like gorilla glass no battery over heating like HTC one has improvements as well needs a slight change to front off phone plus double front speaker there isn't many problems with the phone except make it unbreakable like cat phones shock proof and water proof then 100 out off 100 vast improvement on alcatel 4

AnonD-731912, 19 Jan 2018Have just got this phone (on a cheap plan) and it's taking forever to charge with the supplied... moreI've used both and it still takes aeons to charge, runs out quicker than charges.
I have the optus version of this phone. It is called the Optus X Spirit. Has anyone tried to use this phone with Chromecast? I just want to know if I can mirror this device with my TV if I was to purchase Chromecast.
Very poor battery performance. Way too long to charge and way too quick to empty. Fortunately, it was cheap but won't buy it again.
