Alcatel One Touch Blaze 990 lands, priced

Announced back in February, the Alcatel One Touch Blaze 990 was only released in the Philippines this July and it looks like it’s being positioned as a mid-range Android smartphone.

We received our review unit of the Alcatel One Touch Blaze 990 early last week but have not un-boxed it until the other day due to a long line of review units we have at the YugaTech HQ.

With some decent specs and screen size, the One Touch Blaze could be an alternative smarpthone for those looking at their first affordable Android phone.

    does it have ibang kulay? ;)

  2. It resembles like the old Nokia on abrupt look. Alcatel is not much expected but they provide what is due for your money.

  3. Operation Super says:

    This is actually a tad better than Optimus One.

  4. wat says:

    I would say O1 still has edge seeing it can be rooted and has custom roms available also what is the ram on this?

  5. lawrence says:

    Price of “around P15T” is quite close to the SRP of HTC Wildfire S, P15.5T. Both devices have similar specs. HTC build and quality is way better than Alcatel, IMO.

  6. Galaxy says:

    Aouch, for 15k you could already buy a much powerful Galaxy Ace and a dual sim cherry mobile orbit…

  7. nico says:

    CM’s Magnum HD is way way better and it sells for 15,999. Yun na lang kung ganyan din ang presyo. lol

    wow within my budjet, canoot wiat for the review sir yuga

  9. Aby says:

    merong parang violet

    Actually retail price na un 10K (hindi naman mawawala yang ‘sale’ na yan). Kaya lang nila sinasabing 15k kasi gnun benta nila sa ibang bansa.

      I really like my safeguard cellphone before which is alcatel.Clear speaker plus barato ra kaayo nga cellpne. I hope someone can inform me that there are still stock of alcatel.Thanks.

  11. lokz says:

    I think with the price of 9,999. Someone could get a more decent brand (i.e. samsung or nokia) instead of this one. Alcatel has not made a strong presence in the mobile industry. Why not make their retail price just below the competing ones.

  12. karl says:

    the specs are almost the same as optimus one although the latter is a bit better.

  13. Inday says:

    Hi, may i know if there is still an alcatel cellphone with original battery? If there is then is there any possible that we can order online?

    Thanks have a nice day.

    hi guys, wag nmn nating masyadong maliitin ang Alcatel, anyway its on the market worldwide rather than cherry mobile or any other china phones. So just don’t compare alcatel to CM phones. It’s been a decade since Alcatel is on the mobile business. Alam mo kung anu problema natin mga pinoy, mahilig taung makiuso sa kung anu ang kilala.Kya cguro hindi siya tlga nkilala d2 sa pinas. COmmon, tignan nmn natin kung anu kya sa budget na khit panu hindi npapag-iwanan.Hindi ung nasa kilalang brand ka. They wouldn’t be still in the industry if these phones are not good. since u have a budget then u should’nt have to check the spec, u should just go to nokia, samsung or htc. when u just downgrade the phone.

      Hi intindihin natin sana evry sentence of.I never look down alcatel i really appreciate it.I got my first cellphone before :Alcatel” and they are making fun of me because of the style of my Alcatel,thy said palitan mo naman ‘yung safeguard mo ng Nokia!Sabi ko i never change my celphone even it is safeguard as what your making fun of me but it is durrabla.It was six yrs but still in really good condition.Most of my neighbors nilookdown kasi sabi nila safegurd i just ignore it sometimes yes it is but don’t you know safegurd bar smill good?If i can find that style they’re making fun of being safeguard then maybe i hav to buy it.I bought it before P2,000.only.But it was palaging nahulog sa tubig,eyan ang dahilan sa pagkasira.I am not a person after for being expensive.But for simple but durrable.Ok? Have a nice day.

    hay naku.. puro brand kasi iniisip nyo.. di kayo marunong tumingin ng specs.. with a 10k price na phone di po kayo makakabili ng 3.5 inches screen at may 5mp camera with flash.. ang outstanding feature is the secondary front camera which can be used for skype or video call.. sa ibang brands nsa 17k pa ang may front cam.. it is alcatel we are talking about and isa sila sa mga pioneer in the mobile industry.. mukhang ngayon lang ulit sila nakabangon pero i think its worth a shot.. i think im going to have this one because i can use the front cam dahil may wifi kmi sa bahay.. :)

    • Inday says:

      Hi i never down any brand,because i don’t know i just appreciate alcatel kasi i had that one before. Like what i said it takes good condition even it’s was already 6 years in my hands. Kung wla nahulog sa tubig maybe it last more than that years i said. Ok?That’s why i still like to know kung mayroon pa bang stock sa ngayon. Again i never down any other phone ok?

  16. Paolo says:

    Good day! Interesting. is it still 10K? where to buy one? :D

  17. android17 says:

  22. Josef says:

    i bought a blaze 990 last week September 16, and I am having a problem when using the call feature. sometimes the screens suddenly turns black and I even can’t access my phone. I am also having problems when it comes to the battery because there are instances that the battery heats up and drains faster. Any advise?

  23. Edmar says:

    I bought mine just this Friday in SM Clark. Nilibot ko muna lahat ng stores then I found the lowest price in Fonerange at 8,250.00. May 1 year service warranty din siya at 3 days replacement kung may factory defect kaya dun ko na binili.

  24. marei jeane says:

    wala bng mas mura?

  25. Phil07 says:

    It’s suggested retail price is PHP 8,990. Alcatel Blaze OT 990 has been announced on Philippine Star newspaper with several kiosk in Luzon. Don’t buy the PHP9,990! Be wise. Check out other stores. Thanks!

  26. toothsie says:

    Kudos to Alcatel. I’m very glad I have discovered Alcatel phones. They’ve got quality phones at such a very affordable price. In my opinion, they are a lot better than the more popular brands like Nokia or Samsung. I have upgraded my old basic Alcatel phone with the OT-506D, OT-813D, and now the OT-890D and I’m very much pleased and satisfied. Can’t wait to get this OT-990D. Way the go Alcatel!!!
