It was last 1999 when I first used an Alcatel phone. I was in third year high school then. I forgot the phone model but it was an orange bulky safeguard-soap-shape like phone, probably one of the largest phones at that time. But of course that is already one of the high end phones during then and only a few have GSM phones. And now, I am using an Alcatel phone but this time I am using the thinnest smartphone in the market—the Alcatel One Touch Idol ULTRA 6033. Let’s take a look at this new phone from ALCATEL.

After being out of the mainstream in the past few years, Alcatel made a big come back with their Alcatel One Touch Series phones. I am really excited to try it and to see for myself what Alcatel is really up to right now.

Unboxing

The box is made of hard paper with a smooth finish. The phone is displayed side view on a background with the phone Model written on the upper part of the box. You will see the specs and other information at the back. I couldn’t understand some of the details as the language is in French. Trust that the language on retail units being sold in the Philippines is in English. In my case, I had to download the English version of the manual.

The Alcatel One Touch Idol Ultra has a very appealing appearance as well as the feel. It is said to be the thinnest smart phone in the market right now.

Alcatel One Touch Idol ULTRA 6033 has 4.7” HD Display (1280 x 720 pixels, Capacitive touch), 13.3GB internal memory, 1GB of RAM, 1.2 Ghz Dual Core Processor. The phone has a unibody design and the battery is not removable. I compared it to my other phones and it is indeed very thin.

The Alcatel One Touch Idol Ultra is a lot different from what we used to know about Alcatel phones. Being a smartphone, the speed and functionality is very interesting. It also has built in apps like Facebook, Twitter, Office Suite, Evernote, Linkedin, and PicSay. It even has a one-year subscription of AVG Mobile AntiVirus for Android. These apps make the phone suitable both in social and business. It has One Touch Manager which makes Files and Data Transfer easier using the USB cable or Wifi connection. It also supports wifi tethering.

Alcatel One Touch Idol Ultra is available for Php14,990. You can also visit Sun Shops and this is free at Sun Plan 999. It also appeared several times in Iron Man 3 as it is dubbed as the movie’s official mobile phone.

Tokyo Game Show Special Coverage

Tokyo Game Show 2018

41711344 10155988194573337 3113579199126831104 o - We are going to Tokyo Game Show 2018

Witness this year’s biggest gaming convention in Asia, the Tokyo Game Show 2018. This September 19, our team will fly to Tokyo, Japan, to be part to TGS 2018. Special thanks to our brand partners Huawei Mobile, PLDT Home, Smart Communications and Cherry Mobile for making this coverage possible.

If the line on the demo is any indication, Biohazard RE: 2 is one of the most popular games in TGS 2018. It’s one of those games that, regardless of the time of day, the queue to the booth just won’t go shorter than 60 minutes. We decided to hold off trying our luck on the demo, maybe tomorrow’s line would be shorter.

Demo or no demo, it’s still worth mentioning that the game, even in pictures is just a sight to behold. CAPCOM gave us access to screenshots of the game, and my goodness, what a fresh  coat of paint the game has over the 1998 Playstation and Nintendo 64 classic.

Check them out and drool.
