I'm a complete newbie in the Android world (iPhone user), so I'm so sorry in advance if I'm asking a stupid question. So today I bought an Alcatel Hero 2 from Amazon. The device hasn't arrived yet. The device has Android Kitkat on it and from some youtube review videos I knew that the customized Android version installed on the device is chubby so I thought if I can upgrade to vanilla Lollipop then the performance will improve.
There is very little information on the web about the Hero 2. I only found a webpage (can't post a link here because I'm new but google for "upgrade alcatel hero 2 lollipop" and you'll find it) that says one can upgrade to Lollipop, but it seems to be SCAM. Thus I thought it's better to ask here to get trusted answers since I don't want to get into security problems.
I know what ROMs are and have a little background but I don't know where to get trusted ROMs or if it's possible at all to upgrade my phone. I appreciate any answers.
Many thanks in advance!
