Alcatel Flash Plus unboxing, first impressions, Antutu, camera samples

While I was in an event, I was given an opportunity by my fellow tech bloggers to unbox the highly-anticipated Alcatel Flash Plus




These are the front and back sides of the Alcatel Flash Plus box.


The front has 8 MP selfie camera, 5.5 inch IPS display with screen protector and Android capacitive buttons. I had the slate variant. The back has 13 MP AF rear camera with flash and Alcatel One Touch logo. I didn't attempt to remove the screen protector of the back cover for a reason.


The left side has SIM 1 and micro SD slot. The right is packed with SIM 2 slot, volume rocker and power/unlock button. When I checked the SIM 1 slot, I noticed that it has a "flap" cover like in some Xperia phones.


The top has 3.5 mm. audio jack and the bottom has pin-hole microphone and micro USB port.

The package includes another screen protector, micro USB to USB cable, 1 ampere USB plug, instructionals and warranty and earphones. When I checked it's Antutu, I had an over 39,700 unverified score which is a bit low for my standards for a typical MT6752 64-bit octa-core processor.

And the camera samples. I love that both 13 MP rear camera and 8 MP front camera have 16:9 aspect ratio. That thing is missing with the likes of MyPhone Infinity 2 and Asus Zenfone 2. This was shot in a resto in Zuellig Bldg,, Makati in low light condition. Flash is off

Based on my previous blog post, Alcatel Flash Plus will be available again this June 5, 2015 exclusive at Lazada Philippines for Php 6,495.

First impressions: Before I got my chance to do some hands-on on this device, I saw some posts from various Facebook posts and "hearsays" from some bloggers who were there at the smartphone launch that the bezel is kinda bad. For me, the side bezels are not bad at all which gives me more interest that this might be my first 64-bit smartphone. I love that both cams have 16:9 aspect ratio. The shutter speed of both cams is good enough for me. One thing that bothered me when I tried to put in the USB OTG as default storage, the system asked me that I need to reboot which is uncommon in all of the USB OTG capable smartphones that I had in the past. I'm curious if it is in the case of phone storage to micro SD if the system will ask me to reboot again. I watched my fellow tech blogger Alexei Rivera of Big Time Show's episode last May 23 when he tried to max out the settings of Riptide GP in this device, the phone itself lagged twice. Those bugs which I need to check first via a review unit before I gonna let go of my Php 6,495 if the smartphone is worth it for my taste. The flap covers of sim slots, those things that you need to check especially if you're not that careful in handling a smartphone. 

Special thanks to Peter and Angel of Geekypinas.com for allowing me to check their Alcatel Flash Plus review unit.
