I just encountered a problem with my AFP. My son installed this 1 Tap Hibernate App, and after that everything went LAGGY! The battery drains at about 3pm after getting fully charged at 7am wthout playing any games! Now I uninstalled 1 Tap Hibernate, but now I could not access Play Store, even after doing some tricks to access it again. I went through Resetting the phone to factory settings but it would not allow m e. I pressed the erase button but it just blinks and would not proceed to the Resetting to Factory settings! What a big problem!
hey guys. . . its still available the alcatel flus plus in stores??? please answer me.. coz i wanted to buy that phone..

I have one problem about AFP. I cannot save images from facebook application. Anybody else can help me please?
Had it for 3 days. All I can say it is a value for money device. Everything works fine. No lags especially in playing heavy games. Camera is nice although not the best but pictures taken are all in decent quality.
U have Flash 2.so please tell me your opinion about battery life standby and talk time how hours.

The resulting file size does depend on how much detail is in the pic and the software + compression used.
Take a picture of something or someone in front of a plain white background. Not much other detail there. Same someone or something with a lot of detail in the background. You'd get a different file size.
There are several phone makers that have a lower resolution camera / sensor in the device to cut costs. To get a higher resolution picture (13MP = 4000+ x 3000+ resolution), they'll use software to bump it up. The jpeg compression involved reduces the file size at the same time.
A 13MP image would have a 4MB file size or larger. That file size is typically associated with uncompressed image data.
Anyways, this is what all I was finding out about it.
Big Game Addict, 16 Oct 2015It's really weird.... I see the posts about the cameras on this phone but I only ran into one ... moreHonestly, must admit that my old 8MP Mi Redmi 1 took better photo (even with min light)than my new 13MP AFP!
I found 2 issues with the AFP camera:
1) The file size of photo captured was quite small, around 1 to 2 MB with resolution of rear camera set at 13MP; shouldn't the file size be much bigger @ 13MP?
2) when I open the file with either Gallery or Photos, it looks quite clear & nice but if I open the same file in File Manager, it looks very blur!
I m trying with Google Camera now and hoping to get better quality picture...

I tried out the cameras using the stock app. I use the rear camera to take a picture under one of my tables (there's next to no light under that table). But when I check the pic, it's very clear. So much so that I can literally and clearly see a hair on the ground when I'm zoomed in a little on the pic. I can also see very clearly that I need a broom under there.... real soon!! XD But otherwise, I'm not seeing a problem. Thankfully I didn't see something smiling and/or waving at me under there!!
I took a picture (a mother holding her baby... mother's request) with the rear camera while outside in the late afternoon. Not that much light left at the time. Still a very clear pic. Another indoors (well lit area) of my wife fixing a pair of glasses. Also very clear. That pic would have been better IF my hand was a little more steady (I was hungry!!).
But when trying out the front camera for photos, they come out dark and sucky in low light conditions. But completely fine in well lit areas. I don't waste my time with selfies (IMO, selfies are a marathon of useless). But those that like taking selfies would really hate the front cam in low light conditions.
The weird part shows up when I try ANY video use (skype and video recordings) with the front camera. It all comes out clear as could be even in low light conditions.
I'd also like to try out something for a different camera app (for better features mostly) but didn't get around to finding one yet. IF you get one, let us know..... thanks!! Maybe one of the other camera apps would straighten out the front cam.
Anonymous, 15 Oct 2015may i know the real price of this phone in the market (official store)??
i bought this phone ... moreYou're overlooking 2 things.
1) The 6,490 price tag IS a sale price.
2) You bought from a store in a mall. So they're not only trying to pay their rent to stay there, they're also trying to make some money too. Hehehehehehehe.... no one opens a business to lose money!!
So there's the price you saw for the AFP. It's not really a matter of you got "scammed" or " they overpriced" or something like that. Chances are, another store in another mall could have a completely different price (either higher or lower).
Anonymous, 15 Oct 2015may i know the real price of this phone in the market (official store)?? i bought this phone ... moreThis is due to the fact that the phone was first exclusively released in Lazada before it hit the Mall shelves. And the phone went on sale in Lazada for Php 6,490 :)
lwc, 15 Oct 2015All are fine except the camera is very very bad. I think most of us find that the photo quality taken by both front & rear camera of AFP is quite bad claiming that they are 8MP & 13MP respectively especially when lack of light or in dark environment!
Does anyone knows any APP that could improve the quality of AFP's camera or there are limitation on hardware that could not been compensated by software???
Thanking you in advance!
Anonymous, 15 Oct 2015may i know the real price of this phone in the market (official store)?? i bought this phone ... moreI was able to get this in Lazada for P6490. I'm not sure if this is still available in Lazada.
may i know the real price of this phone in the market (official store)??
i bought this phone in SM Megamall in cash for Php 7,499.00. but i keep on encountering on the net a Php 6,490 price for this phone.
may i get some feedback about this.
Considering the specs of flash plus, it can fullfill all alcatel lovers. Bt they are not launching it in INDIA.
Anonymous, 13 Oct 2015Well explained "Big Game Addict"! So is it just like I have a PC, which is still wor... moreI happen to be using XP !! Win 10 is known to cause problems for several of the video games I play. Can't have that !!
But yeah, that's the "short n skinny" of it !! There's always the chance your hardware won't be able to run the OS in question.
The "Insta-Broken XLPOS9000"...... that's a joke name. The only way to check if you caught rotten luck and got that bad version is to keep using your AFP and see if you're also having the same kinda problems like others are posting about here. Things like lag in your games or something went screwy when it should not have and you can't easily fix it. If so, there's a good chance you caught bad luck and got that bad version. It comes out to "Broken from the start..... eXtra Large..... Piece Of..... well, you get the idea!! Once discovered, returning / claiming the warranty for the AFP becomes a priority.
It's like I said before..... it's all one big luck shot. Luck in getting one is needed and luck in getting a good one is also needed.
Look at that.....
How many had to ask where to get one? Even I had to put in the effort just to get one. Went looking all over the place for the AFP and the one place that had it, was also out of stock so I had to wait longer and get them to tell me when it would be there. Even at that, they told me a wrong date and time the first time. How many posted about the problems they had or are having when they got one. But others did not have these problems. Yup.... it's a luck shot with this phone right from the start.
Lots O Luck !!
