Alcatel Flash 2 Review


Last week, Alcatel One Touch launched itslatest prime model, the Alcatel Flash 2 that pushes the limits in camera and phone. Here’s a review on my thoughts and experience of the Alcatel Flash 2.



Set in a bright lime green and white box, the new Alcatel Flash 2 is a very affordable smartphone for its range.


Unboxing my Alcatel Flash 2

The set consist of Alcatel Flash 2, leather flipcase, screen protector, headphone, charger, USB cable, user manual and warranty card.




The moment I set my eyes on the Alcatel Flash 2, sleekness came to mind. The ergonomically design smartphone by Alcatel One Touch is sleek, slim and swanky. When it comes to purchasing anything for that matter, the outlook of the item must always be pleasing to the eye. Indeed, this smartphone was. The overall build quality was solid while the aesthetic was appealing on the eye.


One can grip the phone with one hand comfortably and also use it with its One Hand functionality!



The display screen is actually a pleasing size of 5.0-inches IPS HD display with Dragon Trail glass protection. I find that I can easily flip through the screen and also type comfortably on the keypad. Using the same concept as other Android smartphones, there is the main Android home key at the bottom of the screen, allowing users to head to the home page with a single click. With a single touch on the home key, two other keys lite up for further commands.


The power start up key is on the right side of the phone together with a volume key and camera key as well.



The back of the smartphone has the 13-megapixel rear camera with dual LED flash while the front has 5.0-megapixels secondary camera with LED Flash as well.


Using Android 5.1 Lollipop platform, the display graphics and colors is pretty decent for its price. The overall speed in opening and flipping through the smartphone is solid and fast. Battery life is also another highlight of this smartphone.


To a blogger like me who makes full use of the camera functions, the Alcatel Flash 2 certainly has a decent camera built in for its range. With it’s tagline of Let’s Mobigraph – a term that combines mobile and photography, the Flash 2 has quite a few multi-features on its camera functions. From Face Beauty for selfies to Super Fine, HDR, Track, Panaroma and more, it’s really enough for users to play around with the camera.

Here are some of the photos taken with the Flash 2.


I am not much of a selfie person but I did try it and thought it was a solid B+ for its Face Beauty function. Not as smooth or sharp as I would have like but it did make my selfie look dreamy and smooth. Instead I chose to take my little precious with the regular photo function and found it good, considering it wasn’t natural lighting, the photo was bright and clear with good colors of the photo after transferring it to the computer, which is another plus point since some photos loses their quality after being transferred to the computer.


Took more still life things and found them very good too upon close up shots. Colors look quite amazing for the price of the phone in my opinion.


The Flash 2 is definitely an improved version of the previous Flash Plus and Flash, showing how committed Alcatel is in the mobile industry. For a smartphone within its range, the Flash 2 is certainly topping the chart with its smartphone hardware and software functions.

For a camera that is priced under RM600, the Alcatel Flash 2 is pretty much value-for-money in its range. Love the aesthetic appeal on the phone, the speed of the software and the camera that takes very decent pictures in low light as well as offering quite a few camera functions.
