I bought this phone from lazada and sent it back because the front cam is blurry when taking pics on low-light conditions compared to the other (flash 2) phone my mom got. I received the other one the same thing is happening. After 5 mins an OTA update from Zadapp popped up asking to update the phone for image stability (and a lot more improvements) so I updated it. After the update, the built-in camera lost its front cam function. An alternative is to download another camera app from PlayStore and use it instead, making sure that the dedicated shutter button works with the cam app downloaded. The front cam improved A LOT though. Also, I have a ModoEx watch I paired with this phone. After the update, the messages won't pop up on the watch anymore. I can say I can live with these little flaws (since it's fixable by an app) and this is still the best PHONE FOR IT'S PRICE. Hands down!
Dan, 21 Dec 2015I have this phone for a 2 days now, and it somehow deleted the photos i took without me knowin... moreTry to turn off the phone, then turned on and check whether everything is OK with the SD card . This restarts the operating system and solve some problems.

Android 5.0 (ignoring the SD card) consists of the following 4 partitions:
1. mmcblk0p23, for System, 2.9GB
2. mmcblk0p24, for Cache, 1.0GB
3. mmcblk0p26, for Data (userdata, incl Apps), 10.6GB
4. Swap, 1.2GB (equivalent to the Windows "virtual memory" file, for instance)
in my opinion the Alcatel flash 2 is the BEST budget phone of the year 2015 for the price of half of the moto g(2015)..... alcatel flash 2 performance is very good,,,,,camera is good for the price,,, display is acceptable at 720p,,,love the stock Android lollipop 5.1:)

Forget...xiomi, Huawei, meizu, lenovo, micromax....... This mobile is great...
Superb phone with outstanding performance. No heating problem no hangs up. Camera Quality is awesome. Just Buy it & reveal the real photographer within you. I have worked on 14 APPS at one time still no hanging problem.. Sound is equal to Dolby Digital-II. So ALCATEL FLASH 2 is leading the market @ 9299/-

Where do guys think the Android OS / pre-installed apps installed? you people keep on complaining about ROM size.... even high end smartphone have this and it is not an issue. Just use the full 128GB microSD and stop compalining.
