Alcatel Flash 2 Android Mobile Review

The Alcatel Flash 2 is a budget 4G Android mobile that has a surprisingly good camera on it.  It is nicely designed with a textured back that feels good in the hand and can be removed to give you access to the twin SIM card slot as well as a microSD port (cards up to 128GB are supported).

It comes with Android 5.1 installed, can take 2 SIM cards and it was nice to see it was a very clean install, very few additional apps pre-loaded on to the phone.

It’s also nice to see that as well as the usual power/screen lock and volume controls there is also a dedicated camera button. Press once to take a single photo, hold to rapid fire multiple shots (great if snapping some action).

The camera produces really good photos with good colours and a good depth of field if you get the shot lined up correctly.

Video quality was also good, you won’t need a separate camera with the Flash 2.

Games also run really well on this, the Octa-core processor had no problems running Asphelt8 or Modern Combat 5 very smoothly and the 5″ screen is a good size as it’s big enough that your hands don’t get in the way of the on screen controls.

Overall the screen is very good, but one minor niggle was the lack of haptic feedback (that feeling you get when pressing the screen), although you get use to it not being there I found I missed it.

Great handset considering the low price and the build quality is also very good.
