I got this phone earlier this year 2016 working fine and all ...very slippery though
but few days back it just kept restarting after a long call. I've tried factory resetting and even hard reset but it still keeps restarting.
i figured i need to completely flash the phone but i can't find the firmware anywhere online for download could you please upload and and email me the link ... i really don't want to loose my money like this
t8769, 16 May 2017Love this phone but find the design for making calls very confusing. Its a Vodofone phone, so ... moreJust install any dialer app you want and disable the Vodafone one. It's as simple as that. I've done it this way and now I use Google dialer.

t8769, 15 May 2017Any way to get rid of this horrible orange?
I'd like to leave it on battery save mode, but ... moreI have this happening on my Moto G4 Play. I don't think there is a way to remove the orange bars. This happens on Stock Android Marshmallow.
Maybe try installing a custom rom?
Love this phone but find the design for making calls very confusing. Its a Vodofone phone, so I can't use the Google software to make calls and manage contacts.
The installed contacts software is really badly designed. I can't access or edit contact information from the dialer.
Is there an app that I can download that'll replace this?
Any way to get rid of this horrible orange?
I'd like to leave it on battery save mode, but the thing goes bright orange. Never had a phone do this, and its really annoying. So I leave it off, and the battery goes down quickly.
Any way to change this?
Its a good phone, but this annoys me.

Not many changes are visible to the user but I have noticed 2 changes straight away. There's a new section in settings menu named "Regulatory & Safety" where you can actually see who made the phone (TCL), a full manufacturer address, CU Reference, Blutooh declaration and a few certification logos. But more important is the second change - camera focus finally has been improved a little bit!
There's an update available in the UK. 653.7 MB although it's still android 6.0.1. I haven't installed it it. Has anyone tried?

So I bought this phone....great phone,great price.....after one week I can tell you this: camera is indeed dissapointing...not the camera itself but the software of the camera.After I installed snapcamera apk the results are waaaay better!!!Another good news is that Alcatel offers a software for PC for upgrade/resoft this device..(good to know)
Overall the phone is excelemt...jbl speakers very loud&clear but the waves maxxaudio is hidden in sound setings and you have to make a lot of steps to get into it.
Display is amazing and it has lots of option.
Fingerprint reader...great job!
Quality of materials...flagship!!!
Procesor...more than enough...
Compare to OP3...hmmmmm....if you like hard games..take OP3...if You like quality multimedia,browsing or social media platinum7 is better than OP3
This realy is a FLAGSHIPKILLER!
