With the exclusion of pixel density of its screen, the Alcatel OneTouch Flash Plus dominates the Honor 4C in specs department. The former has bigger screen with Dragontrail Glass protection, twice the amount of internal storage, better graphics processing unit (Mali-T760 vs Mali-450) support for dual-LTE and has a more sizeable 3,500mAh battery.
