I bought 2 units from the 2nd batch sale from Lazada last Oct 15. Was delivered to me by the 16th.
I can say that so far, I feel satisfied with it. I'm not a techno buff, but I appreciate the fact that the phone is built in with features and functions that could be at least at par with the latest phones in the market, catch is that I have it for a minimal/low price.
The phone looks elegant from the get go. Plus add the fact that when you use the "Leather" case coming from the package, it looks better and classy
The battery life was unexpectedly good as well despite the 3k mah advertisement. Both units I got were doing great. It almost never loses % when Idle. You can use it for a fair amount of hours surfing/playing. (Though, I didn't really jot down how much I've consumed, but when I got tired using it, it still has a fair amount left).
Charging is fast. From 10-100% it goes around a little less than 2 hours. (I think it goes around 1 hour 30- 1 hour 45)
It has good cam (I think it is good for my standards), I don't know why other users say it is grainy or bad. Mine has clear and crisp pics. Even if you have a dim to dark-lit place, the flash + cam make it appear as if there's light when the pic was taken.
It could text and call smoothly, could play the games I want to play. (though I don't usually play high-graphic games on phone, but I tried Marvel Future Fight, and it runs smoothly)
In short, it could get the job done. It may not be the best out there, but It could do what I expected from it at a low price. Which is what's important.
It is a good bang-for-buck phone for those who have limited budget!

hi guys, i just bought alcatel flash 2 at Lazada last October 8, and received the phone the next day (Oct. 9). i didn't used it often since i have my old phone with me. i tried inserting another sim card (October 12), but upon pressing the power button, it wont start-up, then i accidentally touch the memory card slot and it's unusually hot (like it's burning or something). i immediately removed my memory card and saw that its burnt already. i reported it to Lazada and they told me that it might take up to 30 days to check if the item is replaceable or refundable. i need your opinion guys. please help me, i don't know if am i the only one who experienced it with this Alcatel Flash 2. thanks a lot in advance.
The product is good, however, the camera is sloppy. Blurry most of the time, you will really need a very stable hand to use the camera.

Nice design, cool but i see it has non removable battery? Why a non removable battery? Is there somethin wrong with a removable? I will never spent my bucks on non removable battery phones. What if ur battery is not good any more in 6 months, than what? Dont get me wrong but Alcatel bring cool phones.
I'm about to purchase this phone but doubt its battery life. Anyone already using this phone could you please share your experiences regarding the battery life? FYI how I usually use my phone, I'm not gamer, I use phone mostly for working like browsing, checking and replying emails, chatting, and medium social media.
I'm confused whether to go with Alcatel Flash 2 or Huawei Honor 4x. Many reviews of Honor 4x give me a firmer confidence that it surely has a good battery life, unlike AF2 with just few reviews since it's a new product.
After owning this device for 2 weeks, I regretfully say that I sold it. But, not because it has any issues, it's because I was forced to sell the phone, due to the price that was offered to me. The phone was well built, from the design down to the OS, due it's stock android 5.0. Camera quality is great, the only downside is that, it's slow focus in low light, but the quality is indeed amazing for it's price range. Display is very sharp and clear, also the colors are vibrant. LTE connection is very fast, tried using the speedtest app got it to almost 2mbps, considering I'm from a country with a poor internet connection. Browsing with phone is amazingly fast. YouTube, social networking sites, searching, you name it, loads almost instantly. The battery life of the phone was okay, I've been playing for 3 hours straight with my wifi connection on, my battery went from 87% down to 37%. left my phone idle overnight, I noticed that it only depleted 5-7% of battery. Charging time is fast, can be fully charge from 0-100% in a matter of 3 - 3hours and 30 minutes. The audio quality is the only and major downside of the phone, the bass quality is pretty low, but the loudness is okay. But it somehow irritates me to hear a loud music with little bass, if not, nothing at all. As for the call quality, It's very low, even when connected with a headset, I still can't almost hear the person I am talking with. Same for the music, bass quality is very poor. even with a high quality bass headset, you can't maximize the sound, especially the bass. Despite the audio quality, my overall experience is amazing. 8/10 for it's overall quality. I highly recommend this phone, it's affordable and bang for the buck.
Why some information is still missing? Like the dimensions, weight, etc.
This phone is best because have feature App Permission like Android M feature and have Auto Start Management to set up what app to auto start at startup.
