We got to experience the Alcatel Flash 2 before they launch in Singapore, and you won’t believe what you will get for the price of this phone! Take a look at this quick unboxing video of the Alcatel Flash 2 and you’ll know what I mean.

Premium Yet Without The Premium Price Tag
When I first received the phone, I have no idea how much it’ll be selling it and was told to guess. I look at the packaging, look at the content and then touched and felt the phone. $300 I said, and boy I was so wrong. This is a potential gift for those planning to buy a smartphone with good camera but doesn’t want to pay the premium price for it.

Retailing at just S$199 without contract, cheapest smartphone that gives you a powerful camera and some awesome specifications. You can buy it online at Lazada.sg from 4 December onwards! Just in time for Christmas presents. If you’re surprised by the unboxing and the price, scroll on to read my first impression of the Alcatel Flash 2.

Full set of accessories and even comes with screen protector and leather case, all for just S$199! Set in photo not the local set, Singapore units will come with our standard 3-pin adaptor.

No Fluff Just The Basic Apps
If you are one of those who gets irritated by the numerous apps that come pre-installed in your new smartphone, you’ll be happy to know that Alcatel has keep it as bare as possible. Comes as it is with the authentic Android L UI, similar to the NEXUS phone. No branded theme or skin overlaying the original OS.

Take Mobile Photography To Next Level (Mobigraphy)
Alcatel’s dedication for mobigraphy gives a complete and growing multi-feature camera to ensure that you always have the most needed creative tools for your mobigraphy journey. You can shoot in manual settings, take time lapse videos and capture panorama pictures with the front camera.

One feature which I like is the easy hands-free selfie taking with V Gesture recognition. For fast, easy and convenient way of taking photos, simply use the gesture recognition feature. It allows you to take photos simply by showing the V (peace) sign.

There’s even a dedicated shutter button for quick switch from phone to camera. Something you don’t find in many phones these days.

I will be spending more time with the Alcatel Flash 2 and exploring New Zealand together with the phone. Follow me on Instagram to see what the camera of this phone can do.

This is taken with a phone camera that cost less than $200! Worth buying or not?
