ACJ, 28 Jun 2016how can you tell that it is a bad choice? are you even being objective on your opinion, please... moreIt is not subjective, it is objective.
You can refer to GSMArena's Xiaomi Mi Max review, which has almost all the same spec as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro Snapdragon 650 version, and compare to Meizu M3 Note.
The Snapdragon 650 processor are indeed flagship grade, and the Mediatek Helio P10 is indeed inferior. You can refer to Meizu M3 Note review (GSMArena has it), it overall perform lower than last year Mediatek Helio X10 processor.
Ok, you may say Alcatel implements a better software optimization to counter this, offer better experience and battery life. But, as software always are upgradable, so does the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro can improve, but the processor inside those phone cannot be improve, you get what you buy.
I always advise to get the better spec phone for the same price rather than relying on software optimization, as software limitation is limit by their hardware limitation too.
You may not notice the performance difference on everyday usage, but you will notice it when you play high end 3D games.
So, on the same price, if another phone provide better gaming experience ready than those just provide good use on normal usage, which will you choose?
Do remember, it is easier for a phone to run smooth in normal usage, as software upgrade will do the trick (almost all phone is like that, but not always, as it depend on processor as well), but heavy 3D gaming can only rely on raw processor and graphic chip power.
Johnlau, 28 Jun 2016The only lack for this product Actually is no waterproof. If the coming product is install wit... moreNow only Samsung's top end phone remain the waterproof feature, Sony after Z5 has no waterproof on their latest X series phone.
Not to say the waterproof feature is not good, but certainly not a priority, even top end HTC and LG phone don't has waterproof feature, only Samsung S5, S5 Mini, S4 Active, S7, S7 Edge have the waterproof built in, and almost all Sony's Z series phone has water proof feature.
Phones are fine without waterproof feature. There are many reports of broken phone happen on waterproof phone that used at watered environment, so just don't try to risk those phone, water damage is not covered by warranty, and it is stated on the phone's warranty manual, and even the phone's manual does mention do not used at watered environment (I do own one of them, and I can confirm those). You can say their advertisement are false, and ironically their phone's manual tell you the complete different story.
Got message from official support about SAR value:
UMTS 2100+WiFi at Head = 0.260 W/kg, on Body = 0.651 W/kg.
Seems that the phone is perfectly safe for daily usage.
i like the DAC of this fon...empressive on its lower price...if your an audiophile enthusiast,then u cud undersrand it.
Device support sucks! I update my device and it failed. The support told me that they will give me feedback but no one is contacting me. It's been a month right now
Japoy, 01 Jul 2016Is this compatible with VR Glasses?yes.. because it has a gyro sensor..
Very impressive phone... The finger print scanner was quite fast... The battery was very good and last for a day ...
smoj, 26 Jun 2016when this will be available in the market?It's available now in the East Asia. ( India, Thailand, Singapore and some others ), Mine will be delivered this week I bought it from Thailand.
The only lack for this product Actually is no waterproof. If the coming product is install with waterproof protection and with economic pricing . I think next future alcatel can trend into this area. As now many smartphone are toward waterproof type. you can do it alcatel. Looking forward to see u next impressive smartphone product
One of the big selling point for this flash plus 2 is that the phone is impressive flash charge and is finger print accuracy phone which i think quite convenient to young man like us which like long hour time in watching movies and songs and ebook and etc. Good jobs alcatel. Hope to see u launch more phone like this type.
I own quite a number of hp. But this flash plus 2 quite a impressive phone i think one should own and the Android 6 is impressive suit into this device which make me feel own a quality phone with economic pricing.
Hi. this flash plus screen glass very good. I drop 2 times on semen.i thought is finish. But when i turn over the glass still maintain good. I think they use temper glass to plug into their new hp product. Impressive.
