    Php18,000 for an Android 4.2 Jellybean device with specs that many other lower-priced, locally-available brands have.

    The Alcatel Philippine guys are dreaming.

    Over-all specs is obsolete for P18000 (and no sd slot?). Idaan na lang nila sa Lazada para makabreak-even man lang sila. Since mahal ang maglagay ng booth sa SM at nilalangaw sila doon, the best na ang online marketing para sa kanila.

    Wtf to!! In any case i doubt Alcatel will be out of business soon. They around before Ericsson became Sony;Motorola became Lenovo-owned; when Apple and Blackberry were still fruits and Nokia became Microsoft mobile. Alcatel has been around before Samsung or LG mobile division. Alcatel made Talk ‘n txt popular with their P2,999 prepaid handset. Alcatel never changed brand name. Now that i’m thinking of it.. Alcatel is the only mobile brand i know that stood the test of time..

      pagnakarinig or nakabasa ako ng ALCATEL what comes first to my mind is yung Safeguard looking phone nila na may antenna. :D

      This is actually TCL. Nagbabayad lang sila para gamitin ang pangalan ng Alcatel (which is beyond me.) Kaya siguro napapatungan ang price.

    android jellybean @ 18k? nababaliw ba ang apcatel guys…eh kitkat na ngayon and you can buy a decent one at 8K from LG ganda kaya ng LG70 mura pa mabilis ganda pa features…tas eto obsolete na maituturing ang jellybean at benta nila 18k? engot!

  13. Roan says:

    Parang Galaxy S4 na clone pero alcatel lang tatak.

  14. teddyeagle says:

    At 18k, there should be at least lte. Overall specs are indeed obsolete, and if not, wla nang features to na pwede nyang maging edge sa ibang phone. Mid range pa lang ng xperia and lg, out of the running na agad to..
