Alcatel One Touch 918N: Dual-SIM Androids are here!


Alcatel’s re-entry into the mobile handset market in the Philippines is marked by two unique features — affordable, dual-SIM Android handsets. The Alcatel One Touch 918N is the latest handset that they released earlier this quarter.

The Alcatel Blaze Glory 918N isn’t the first dual-SIM Android phone to be available in the Philippines. The likes of Cherry Mobile and Lenovo already introduced similar handsets since last year.

The first handset they came out with was the black variant and they’ve also introduced a white model lately, which looks way better compared to the dark-blue one.

The dual-SIM implementation is pretty simple but with some limitations — i.e., you will need to place the data SIM on the 1st SIM slot in order to achieve faster 3G speeds; the 2nd SIM slot only supports EDGE/GPRS.

The Alcatel Blaze Glory does not has the most impressive hardware specifications. It’s decent but don’t expect too much from it.

Running two active SIM in one handset can significantly affect the battery life so that 1300mAh might pose a problem when you have both SIM slots active and running on mobile 3G.
