After my awesome encounter with Alcatel’s One Touch Idol Ultra and One Touch Scribe HD, another smartphone I’ve got is the Alcatel One Touch Glory 2. Just like its predecessor, the Alcatel Glory 2 is both smart and pocket friendly entry-level smartphone. So, if you want a budget wise smartphone Alcatel Glory 2 is for you.

Built and Specifications

The Alcatel One Touch Glory really fits in my hand. It is small and sexy and I can easily use it with one hand operation. It is quite thicker than Idol Ultra and Scribe HD. It has a smooth finish at the back giving me a good grip while holding it. This is already beautiful for an entry-level smartphone. I haven’t tried it features yet but I will give you an update once I have put the unit on a very good spin.

“We brought colour to this dark entry segment of the smartphone market, which has long been focused on blacks and greys and simple nondescript phones… That not only means colour in the real sense, but also colour in the sense of variety and customization.” – Dan Dery, Chief Marketing Officer at ALCATEL ONE TOUCH

Being small and sexy, Glory is already packed with a 1Ghz CPU. It is very easy to use. It is running on Android Jelly Bean 4.1 but earlier I just had an update to Jelly Bean 4.1.1. It has 3.2MP camera that lets it users capture random photos. This may not be a good as the Idol Ultra and Scribe HD but I can say that it has a lot to offer when competing with other entry-level smartphones from its competitors.

The ALCATEL ONE TOUCH GLORY 2 is available for only P3,999.

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.

Without questions, Cherry Mobile Flare S7 Plus is the best camera smartphone the Cherry Mobile has to date. We haven’t seen other Cherry Mobile phones that are capable of taking photos with impressive quality than the one we brought to Japan to cover Tokyo Game Show 2018.

If you have been following our Instagram posts (@gadgetpilipinas) during our coverage of the TGS 2018, our daily driver was the Cherry Mobile Flare S7 Plus.  So, feast your eyes and take a look at some of our photos:

After looking for a 100-Yen store to buy Allan’s towel (since our AirBnB didn’t have any towels available), we took a break at this vending machine to reward ourselves a cold drink.

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.
