Very sluggish and buggy phone. KAI OS need to do more. Does not record call logs

Whatsapp now supports calling but after upgrade there is no calling feature. Very disappointing tbh. Anyone have whatsapp calling? This phone is 512MB ram which was required. Also anymore updates? Can’t believe kaios only went from 2.51 to 2.511. Also a load of bugs with predictive text that weren’t there before. Come on Alcatel sort this out.

Prcek, 09 Dec 2020I think this phone doesn't support VoLTE, the settings... moreThere exists one youtube video of 3088X where VoLTE icon is visible in the headerline of the screen.
The mentioned setting only gets visible in case your provider accepts this phone in his network regarding VoLTE.
So the phone itself and KaiOS support VoLTE, you can check the spec of the processer also.

VoLTE is not possible with this phone in Germany! I tried out all providers here and every Sim falls from 4G to 3G when a call is initiated. The Sim cards work fine with VoLTE in other smartphones. Can anyone help to show me how I can activate VoLTE in this phone?

There are some mistakes in the specification:
1) The CPU is 1.3GHz Dual-core ARM Cortex™- A53 (http://www.unisoc.com/sc9820e)
2) There is a card slot and according to information on the box, it's compatible with MicroSD cards up to 128 GB
3) The phone can record videos up to 1280x720, you just have to set it in the camera settings
4) There is no MP3/MP4/H.263 player, according to the phone's manual, it supports playing these media formats: AAC, AAC+, eAAC, AMR, AMR-WB, OGG.
The phone came with KaiOS 2.5.1 and after OTA update, it shows KaiOS version 220.127.116.11. The look&feel of the UI is very pleasant, response is quick. There are some drawbacks, you cannot customize the system much. For example there is no option to set custom sound for incoming SMS. You can't set the D-pad keys functions, they are hardwired to: LEFT=quick launch apps, UP=status screen, RIGHT=camera, DOWN=undefined.

I have read reviews of this phone failing after 3 or 4 months. Sadly this happened to me. The phone would not boot up, it just stayed on the Alcatel logo.

GMaps doesn't find my location (with geolocation activated). Endless search for it! How can I fix this problem?
- 27 Jun 2020
I love these kind of phones. Got a couple of questions though.... Does the Contacts section on the 3088 have a decent sized field for 'Notes', and can it store multiple phone numbers for the same contact? Also, can I set my Hotmail up on its Email and will it allow composing & replying or is it just basic reading only? Can the Maps give driving directions like a sat-nav or is it purely a map? Thanks.

There are mistakes in specifications - the phone HAS SD card slot and video is not 480, but 720*1280 and is really super for a such phone. Phone is very nice, fast, very clean and loud voice when speaking, screen also is very good for such kind of phones.
