    4.2 jellybean plus 512 mb RAM = Mindblown AGAIN O.o


      low-spec phone: walang kwenta, boring, laggy etc..
      hi-spec phone: it’s good but (insert higher-end device here) is much better, i’d rather get that than this..

      Predictable na trolling techniques mo totoy.

    • abuzalzal

      You are stupid and illogical

      It is always wiser to spend more on a phone that *works* than being tricked into buying something super cheap that barely works

      Do you even have ANY idea how 512 mb RAM warks on a JB platform? you bumming idiot

      I’m not trolling….I’m just expressing my strong disgust to these OEMs (and clueless people like YOU) that claim 512mb RAM is good enough

    • Read folks, it says low power integrated SOC so it probably doesn’t a big batt to power this fone.

    • Dapat busalan yang si Abuzalzal. Kung anu ano ang mga pinagsasabi.

    • kaya nga mataas ng specs ng android kasi nga lagdroid siya..

  3. 32 mp camera or 3.2 mp camera? ano ba talaga? hehehehehhehe choco na gatas o gatas na choco?

  4. Typo there. I think that should read as 3.2, not 32 MP.

  5. nakow 1300mah… di aabot ng isang araw

  6. 512 RAM sa 4.2 Jelly Bean with 1300mah battery? Waahhh….. Anyways G’luck Alcatel. :)

  8. almost same specs with the old CM flare but looks like an SIII mini. btw the old glory 2 with almost the same specs can handle jellybean smoothly.

    motto of the day:
    “be satisfied of what you have and what you can afford” ;-p

  9. Before complaining read first. It’s low-power integrated SOC. So it’s probably a new SOC that’s a batt economizer, that doesn’t need a big batt.

    Only feedback from actual owners who’ve already had the chance to use it over several days can tell us whether the OT Magic can indeed last the day without a big batt like JLo’s.

  11. Nothing “magical” about 512MB of RAM. :(

  12. me glory 2 aq, kayang kaya ng 512 n ram yun jb, hindi xa naglalag maxado… as in mas naglalag p yun samsung ng kptid q n ics… hndi nmn cla mgbebenta ng hndi nla natetest at naayos lalo kpag branded

  13. I heard that MT6572 comes with Mali 400 GPU. I don’t know if its the under clocked Mali though. The breakthrough on this processor is in manufacturing which made this cheaper to produce and sell. Nothing a buyer will benefit on since you can buy MT6577 and MT8589M phones at about the same price. It also have the 28nm technology so battery consumption should be about the same as older model with the same 28nm.

  14. I’m planning to buy this phone over flare 2.0, this phone looks great( well for me ) . . .

  15. Meron ding model na may 5 mp camera instead of 3.2 mp. sale siya ngayon P3999 lng. . . from davao pla. . .

  16. sgt.prinnydood

    gionee pioneer p2 was way better than this… anyway good phone alcatel :)

  17. this phone is not that bad as half of the people say. Ang problema lang talaga ay malakas siya sa battery

  18. saan po made ang alcatel?

  19. meron ako nakuha nito P3,999 lang at ung 5MP ang rear camera, ewan ko kung 3.2MP ba tlga ang spec nito or 5MP pero ok nmn sha sa pics. battery life 5hrs of gaming bago ma lobat, non demanding games, candy crush, pvz2, zombie diary, malakas ba mag consume ang ganon?so far wala pa naman ako na experience na lag.

  20. Nakuha ko to sa Sun postpaid plan 350. Okay naman sya, di pa naman naglalag kahit sobrang dami ko nang apps. Ayos lang din ang design, mukhang mamahalin. Yung camera naman maganda yung rear cam pero yung front cam medyo malabo kaya yung rear cam pa rin gamit ko pag-selfie. lol. Medyo di rin maganda yung touchscreen feature nya pero oksy lang din naman. PINAKA THE BEST FEATURE NYA yung internet speed, umaabot hanggang 21mbps. Di ko alam kung sa phone pa ba yun o sa sim card ko na pero sun at smart prepaid lang naman gamit ko. Yung smart sa pag internet at yung sun sa pag call at text kasi nga nakaplan ako. Trust me guys, mabilis talaga mag internet dito. Nakakanood ako ng movie sa youtube nang walang lag. Yung battery lang talaga ang downside nito. Di aabot ng isang araw lalo na pag mahilig ka sa games at internet surfing. I suggest magdownload na lang kayo ng task killers at battery saver. Babaan nyo rin ang brightness para lalong makatipid sa battery. Overall “okay” naman sya sa price line nya. P.S. Yung speak-to-text feature nya ang isa sa paborito ko ;) Sana makatulong kahit papano yung review ko sa mga may balak bumili nito :D

    This phone is so amazing! i bought it last month and it really fits my requirements. Just to mention, its specifications may not be that high but the quality of the hardware used is durable. It doesn’t mean that 512RAM will not work on JB version of android platform but it depends on the generation of the hardware. Those who are complaining above without experiencing this phone, you better shut up. ALCATEL won’t mess their name.

      I just had Alcatel OT Magic from my plan few weeks ago. I find it great for a spare phone. Then battery lasts as long as you’re not a phone gamer or internet nookie the whole day. For basic uses like calls/texts/few internet access, I say this phone is great. Battery life can sustain 2 days. I guess whatever phone you have, when you drain your battery life through net surfing or games, talagang mauubos ng mabilis. I have my Samsung Note 2, darn it only lasts for a day. For OT Magic, yes. This one is A-ok!
