Let’s check what’s inside the box – Alcatel Flash 2 unit, screen protector, USB cable, Wall Adapter, Earphones, Case Cover
HARDWARE AND DESIGN
Upon opening the box, we were greeting by a dark gray Alcatel Flash 2. The device is only available in this color so, it you are looking for a smartphone with a different color, look somewhere else. Personally, we do love this gray color and the matte finish of the back cover. It gives a reassuring grip and give you less worries that it is going to slip in your hand.
We find the 5-inch display to be gorgeous with good viewing angles and contrast. We will try to get a review unit so that we can test the phone even on outdoors.
SOFTWARE AND PERFORMANCE
The device runs on a nearly stock Android skin. Overall performance is generally smooth though we have not downloaded any games or apps during our short hands on.
Our good fellow bloggers was able to take photos on the Flash 2 and photos appears to be very decent. Unfortunately, we were not able to send some photos via Bluetooth due to our limited time with the devie.
Though we were not able to take photos, we were able to insert our Globe SIM on the device. LTE coverage seems to be decent but we failed to do a speed test.
We believe that the 3,000 mAh battery will be more than enough for moderate use. We normally see smartphones with a 5-inch HD display packed with a smaller battery and lasted for a day with normal use. We think Alcatel made a smart move to put a larger 3,000 mAh battery here.
All these impressive specs and good battery will be yours for only P6,190 plus you get freebies like a case cover and a screen protector. We want to have more time with the device so we’ll try our best to secure a review unit. Another sale with happen on October 8 for the Alcatel Flash 2 so better get your Lazada app on your smartphones ready.
