Alcatel X1 Coming Soon Price Specs Philippines

Seems Alcatel is also in Metal trend as they will also be fighting off with their new Alcatel X1.

We got hold of Demo unit and its very premium and seems like a slimmer sleeker iPhone but not. Metal Frame Accented with Chamfers surely compliments the Curved 2.5D Front and Back Panel Glass. A 3D X wiith Spin effects that is immortalize on the back for unique aesthetics. It is really thin and light at 6.99mm and weighs 140g.

Alcatel X1 comes in 5 inch HD Display produce rich colors and great sunlit legibility. It is powered by new Snapdragon 415 Octa-Core with Adreno 405 GPU supported with 2GB RAM and 16GB Internal Storage. Got a chance to do an Antutu and it scored 26K which is higher than the old Snapdragon 410.

As for Optics it features a 13MP Primary Rear Camera at with 1/3.06 Sensor size, 1.12 um Pixel size, 79.8° Wide Angle at f/2.2 aperture with Dual Real-Tone LED Flash and for its front it is equipped with 5MP 1/4 Sensor size, 1.12 um Pixel size, 75.3° Wide Angle at f/2.0 aperture with Selfie Flash.

Quite a few tries with Focus but eventually got it working. Left Side am focus on IceKing while on the Left Side I am focused on the background. Does have the right amount of detail and colors. Even with strong lighting there were no signs of lens flare guess thanks to the 5 elements lens setup.

Selfie turn out great as even in low lighting conditions i can still see details of my face as well as colors are on point as seen by my blue polo shirt. Lines are clear and visible and no signs of distortion.

Regular connectivity is available such as WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS. Ultrafast LTE Cat 4 handles its internet connection on the Go. This is a Dual Sim Dual Standby handset. As for Sensors, it features

Alcatel X1 will also come with HiFi Sounds by Cirrus Logic technology and Arkamys Acoustic Enhancement Technology.

A unique feature, you can unlock the phone by, No not fingerprint but by looking at it. This is possible with EyeVerifiy Technology.

Just carries a 2150mAh non-removable battery. Guess Alcatel was limited to this to achieve a slimmer profile for the X1.

To wrap things up Alcatel X1 offers updated specs, brilliant optics and HIFI audio although we wished for more battery though. It's major competition is Samsung J5 2016 as they share near common qualities.

Alcatel estimates price of 13k. But if you are going to price this, How Much? Your comments are very much appreciated... Hopefully this arrive soon or to say June...

Alcatel Plus 10 2 in 1 Windows Tablet Laptop Hybrid with LTE Keyboard Price Specs Philippines

Alcatel launched 2 in 1 Tablet - Laptop Hybrid Plus 10 that comes with keyboard LTE Dock.

Tablet is quite on the slim side and is very light and comes in Black, White, Metallic Silver and Warm Grey Leather paint job. What I do like is that it is not picture frame-ish as it feature less bezel on the sides. Power and Volume rocker are on top (Tablet Landscape). On the right side of the tablet are the ports: 3.5mm jack, Micro HDMI, MicroUSB. At the back is a compartment for which you open to be able to access the MicroSD slot. On the bottom lies magnetic pins that attaches to keyboard dock.

Alcatel Plus 10 as the name suggest sports a 10 inch HD 1280 x 800 IPS Display with 10 Multi-Touch Points. Under the hood, it utilizes Intel Cherry Trail T3 Chipset supplemented with 2GB RAM and 32GB Flash Storage. Intel Atom series has gotten better through the years that runs a better Windows 10 experience and can even do some rendering via Movie Maker and Photoshop.

Tablet features WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS. Just basic camera features here with 2MP FF Front camera and 5MP FF Rear Camera that is just enough for casual shooting. Do make sure you have enough light source to get better images.

With the keyboard dock you are connected via 3G or 4G LTE. Yes it has a sim slot. You also get WiFi 802.11 A/C as well as may act as Portable Hotspot for 15 users. Really neat connectivity features here. Keyboard dock also gives you one full pledge USB port.

Alcatel Plus 10 carries a 5830mAh battery (tablet) that is quoted to run for up to 8 hours.
Carries 1 year of Microsoft 365 Office 365 for productivity needs. Keyboard Dock carries 2580 mAh battery.

Was really caught off guard by Alcatel by announcing this device, a Windows product at that… What’s next Windows Smartphone? Hmm gonna ask.

Overall I like how the Plus 10 is designed and how it works. Clean and simple yet symmetrical design that is portable and connected.

No release date yet but said to be price below 20,000 Pesos.

Flash Plus 2 Official! Review Specs Price Philippines

Flash Plus 2 3GB Ram gets price cut now only 6,40 Pesos! For Lazada Online Revolution Grand Christmas Sale until Dec 12 2016!

Flash Plus 2 3GB RAM 32GB Storage:

Flash Plus 2 Now Official!

Hi Geeks! We are pleased to have with us a Commercial Unit of Flash Plus 2.

We are presented with a Black Box with Flash Plus 2 Branding and a Heart. Opening the package we are greeted with the Front of Flash Plus 2. Setting the unit aside, we look into further and find manuals, warranty card and propriety data cable and charger. This is what we should be expecting to receive when we order. No More No Less.

Flash Plus 2 comes with metallic frame accented with chamfers on the sides. Comes with Removable Back Cover come in Venus Gold and Luna Silver with “Wire Drawing” finish for grand and elegant look although it is not purely metal but mixed with polycarbonate as to not hamper signal reception. It has an curved sides to provide better grip and with stamping of “Flash” Branding at the back. It is quite slim, handy and beautifully premium considering its budget price range.

Upfront lies a 5.5 inch Full HD Display with Dragontrail Glass that delivers great viewing angles as well as clear and detailed viewing experience enhanced with MiraVision 2.0 Technology. We found ourselves a clean stock Android Marshmallow with less bloatwares. Navigation was a breeze and setting up the device was easy. It supports double tap gesture for turning on/off screen. Oh by the way, you can set default storage to external microSD and USB storage.

Flash Plus 2 is the cheapest smartphone packing Helio P10 in the market. It comes in two variants with 2GB RAM with 16GB Storage or 3GB RAM with 32GB Internal Storage. We had encountered a prototype during the launch and it scored 40K on Antutu but surprisingly with the commercial Unit it scored 42K nearing 43K mark. We notice it ran apps better and we had not encounter any lags with navigation.

Well let’s move on to Gaming Test. It ran Asphalt fine at High settings. We also tried Marvel Contest of Champions. Therefore should be able to run COC and other online games with ease as well as Heavy Games though we recommend tuning settings to medium or low if gameplay proves too much to handle. See for yourself. Please comment on the video as what you think of gameplay. Your feedback will be much appreciated by Flash. You would notice how sound quality from the Flash Plus 2 as its speaker is loud enough to hear game music and sound effects.

Flash Plus 2 comes with 13MP with OV13853 sensor at f/2.0 aperture primary rear camera with improved Auto-Focus as it features Mixed AF for more accurate focusing. Utilizes Dual Real-Tone LED Flash for more natural light support. For its Front, it features a 8MP Selfie camera with 84° wider-angle for wider selfie, great for group shots and  supported by selfie flash for light support.

Flash Plus 2 Camera

Camera focuses fast and colors are on point. As seen by samples below. This can be credited to the OmniVision Sensor as well as Mixed CAF and PDAF working together to target your subjects or between the foreground and the background. Shutter is responsive as you push the button, it take the shot at instant. You can take up to 20 shot through Burst mode by holding on the shutter button.

The Left Pic focuses on the Ice King Figure while the right focuses on the city background.

Ice King in Dark Environment
Here are Cityscape shot… Lines are clear but there are some washout details like the red orange roofing and trees. As you zoom in and crop, you dont get to see those minute details.

As for selfies, it did take decent shot of me with correct colors of my shirt although in low light it needs a little help as seen here groufie of Flash Philippines FB Admins and Blogger Ron Not The DJ.

Flash FB Admins and Ron Not The DJ.
Oddly enough there were difference in what is stated on the specs sheet and on the exif of shots taken. As the Rear camera is said to have an aperture of f/2.0 but samples exif indicate otherwise with an aperture of f/2.2. For the front camera, it should be 5MP but we found out to be 8MP shots. Per Flash Community Architect, the aperture problem is said to be a software bug and will be corrected on next firmware update.

Flash is giving it best as they also focus on giving great sound experience with their new Flash Plus 2, bringing in Hi-Fi  32-bit DAC (AKM4375) and a digital filter. Share your music and party with friends as it also comes with Audio amplifiers NX9890 offering higher 5-9dB, loader speakers.

We tested out fingerprint sensor and it worked flawlessly. You just need to set it up right by pressing your fingers and in every angle so it can detect it with ease. When setup goes well, you can set which finger to use to launch a specific app like Facebook or camera. Quick access with a reaction time of .5 seconds and supports 360 degrees fingerprint detection. Supports up to Five Fingers. It does not work while the phone is on standby though.

Flash Plus 2 comes complete set of sensors with Gyro, G-Sensor, Proximity, Light, E-Compass and Hall Switch.

Charger Input: 100-240V-50/60Hz 0.5AOutput: 5.0V 2A / 9.0V 1.67A
Carries a 3000mAh Non-Removable Battery and finally offers faster charger with Flash Charging and its  5V 2A / 9V 1.67A Power Adapter that offers 3x faster charging times - 50% in 30 mins and Full Chargers at 1.5 Hours. Started out at 34% percent of battery then after the games and antutu and all we arrived at 23% so 11% drop. If my estimation is correct it should last you about up to 4hrs and 5hrs heavy usage. Casual users might last the day with moderate usage. Was not able to test charging though hopefully when we get more time with Flash Plus 2

Regular sets of connectivity features is available like WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS. LTE is available for ultra-fast internet connection. Turbo Download feature is added for faster downloads. Carries two sim card slots and yes both sim supports LTE as well as be able to lock on to LTE signal.

Overall, Flash Plus 2 is sweet deal as it is attractive with its metal form paired together with most recent efficient processor Helio P10 by Mediatek. It also offers great sound with HiFi and loud amplified speakers. You get your shots quick focus with sharp on point camera optics. Personalized Security and shortcut with Flash Plus 2 fingerprint sensor. Offers Flash charging to lessen your waiting time and more usage. For 6,990 Pesos for the 2GB RAM variant, it’s the best Flash has to offer for the Filipino Consumers. Budget but dang its worth your money.
