Better have an amazing 320ppi than an average 440ppi. I had an htc desire HD, an Acatel Idol X and an LG G2. LG and HTC are great phones but HTC even so quite old now is still a great phone. The build quality is amazing the screen is amazing ... I would highly recommend to buy htc. They know how to make phones. LG is great value for money. They do everything well but nothing amazing. Alcatel can't be compared to these brands especially when you install kitkat upgrade and it destroys your chinese motherboard. Pass your way. You won't regret. Buy a one year old LG instead you won't be disappointed. HTC always keep a high price tag but for good reasons.

hellow guys I am from bangladesh, I wanted to buy this alcatel one touch idol X which is 14990/= BDT (nearly 180$). so I wanted to know about the camera+battery backup and display quality and build quality of this phone... Jelly bean/kitkat isn't a major concern for me cause I allready own 2 lollipop device one hTC and another nexus 7. so I wanted to buy this device as my secondary phone but I am so much concern about build quality and battery backup.plz lettme know about the device's battery backup with data/wifi/gps on (as I don't turn it off in any of my device) will it be a value for money? I am really scared of it's 2000 mAH battery but fell in love with it's 441 ppi display where my 29600 BDT htc 816 has 320 ppi only

I have the idol x 6040A and I haven't had a single issue with it. Battery life huge, crisp display, phenomenal speed etc. Still using it and it out performs every single phone I've put it up against in terms of offline software processing.

I will say that the Alcatel software itself sucks so i recommend installing a third party launcher for better performance. Try Go Launcher for increased speed and crazy customization.

Haters gone hate!!

My phone wont turn on. I plugged it into the computer and the computer just said alcatel single RNDIS interface #3, not alcatel one touch idol x 6040D like it did before all this happened. I unplugged the battery overnight but that didn't work either. I don't know what to do. Anybody can solve this probem?

I had exactly the same problem with my alcatel idolX. Worked perfectly well until I decide to do the upgrade to 4.4.2 which actullay never worked and left the phone totally hectic and in android 4.3 version. Anyway.
I wanted to know what the repair center told you and how much it has cost you. My phone is obviously out of warrantee as I bought it in December 2013 and it just crash yesterday.
Also I was thinking to find a class action as many people seeem to have the same problem.
Thanks for any little feedback you could give.

I have one Alacatel Idol X since 8 months, It was used by my dagther for personal use. It works fine two or three months, 4.2 Jelly Bean android. After that, begins to rise temperature, then camera autofous doesnt work anymore, sometimes it seems to be crazy with the display. Conclusion: it is a real shit, dont buy it.

Have been using the Idol X since Sep-2013 without major problems. After the 4.4 KitKat update in Nov-2014, the phone was getting a bit unpredictable, many times reboot without obvious reasons. In Feb-2015, finally the phone shutdown by itself and not able to reboot anymore. Sent the phone for service 2 weeks ago, seems to be motherboard failure. The Idol X is a very high specs phone at mid range price, but I am not sure about its reliability (after repaired)....

My experience:
Specs: ok
Performance: ok
Hangs: yes
Software stability: shit

I bought this phone for my fiancee from 5 months, 2 weeks ago it stopped working and I returned it back to the service center to fix it, after fixing, it worked slower and finally stopped working again, so I returned it back again to the service center, 1 day later they called me and asked to replace it with any other Alcatel or Sony mobile and pay the money difference.

so my advice: DON'T BUY THIS SHIT

No. Dont buy this phone. I bought it, my friend bought it, my neighbour, my uncle also bought it. We all have problems with it. Game performances are poor. Battery is poor. But screen and camera are AMAZING! That is the only thingh thats good about this phone. Design is also great.
