I even sent the phone back to the service and they replied that it has no problems and works fine. It is nice to hear that letting the battery to become empty helps for you. However it would be great if we could reproduce the problem to show to the service. If anyone finds out how to do it, please let me know!

I'm from the Philippines, I have sent inquiry to Alcatel global site, asking them if there is a possibility of Kitkat upgrade, they replied it is still on going development, I think there is no hope of an upgrade due to its weak mediatek processor MTK6589!, please Alcatel make it happen, this is one of your flagship phone! And please fix some of the bugs on the phone like Battery drain percentage is unreliable, very slow display on inputing pattern/number password, dark pictures when press screen for camera to focus, make it a little bit faster not controlling the processor temperature limited only to 39 degree celcius thereby limiting clock speed, make it until 45 or 50 for which the processor can still perform well! Or if this unit cannot be ugraded, give us option for those still on warranty to swap it to your new model idol x+, adding only a few bucks, paying and picking it up to your official service centers here in the Philippines!

> In reply to Omer @ 2014-08-17 22:03 from j9y0 - click to readI just did my update now and it took approximately 15 minutes from beginning to end. It seems to be working alright but I can't find anything on what it improves like a version FAQ. 02001 was working good and this one is supposed to improve the user's experience - this is from the little explanation that popped up on the screen during the update.

This phone has a real nice screen.

Installing update 03001 right now. Seems to be going good so far. I'll update once it is finished.

I have used an iPhone for 5 years now, and decided to switch to android with a Samsung Galaxy S3. BIG mistake...after only 3 weeks I was ready to toss that phone in the garbage. Pan in Alcatel IdolX...I've never been more impressed with a phone! The speed is unparalleled, the battery life is absolutely fantastic, the screen resolution is amazing and the camera takes the most perfect photographs. On top of all of this, the Alcatel cost me $0 up front since its a relatively "unknown" brand. Step aside, Samsung, HTC and iPhone...as soon as Alcatel gets its name out there, I am sure it will become a flagship brand. 11/10. 6 stars. 150%. Golf claps.
