i both have flare and alcatel glory 2. and i can say that the later is a much better choice. don’t let the bigger screen and dual core proc fool you. battery of flare is mediocre and you’ll end up frustrated at the end. sound in earphone is horrible. but to be fair, watching videos with this phone is a pleasure.
Maybe Alcatel Glory 2 performs much better because of the lower screen resolution and the OS (Jelly Bean). I have the Flare. it definitely needs tweaking which I did, and bought a 2100mAh battery. Now I really enjoy the Flare. best Phone I bought for it’s price range. I’m still waiting for a Jelly Bean ROM, for I’m pretty sure it will improve it’s performance more.
Lawrence what kind of battery you bought in replacement for the batt of flare?
False Advertisement by Cherry Mobile! The Flare’s screen is NOT IPS! Proof: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nHlJ3UWhvUY
Talk about extreme irony….. unlimited calls and Flare do not go together.
Extreme irony because of its battery?
If that’s the case then every plan with unlimited services, for you, must be too ironic! Especially their plan with unlimited call & text and unlimited internet.
If you are playing games with your phone while talking on the line then for sure it will eat up your battery because the screen is on.
Please be mindful that the screen is the most battery hog in every smartphone.
Calling drains less battery than playing with games. And unlimited call features is not ironic as you say because with the proximity sensor, it turns your screen off during call unless you use a headset or a loudspeaker.
Anonimi – Do you own and have used a Flare? I’m guessing not since you’re reply is very theoretical. Yes it is very ironic since my plan does have unlimited calls which I always make use off. And no matter what, I end up charging my Flare at least twice a day. So yes it is extremely ironic.
It’s a good deal IMO. Perfect for those who want an entry-level Android smartphone. Dual-sim capable pa. Pero would that mean that both sim slots are Sun-locked?
The first slot is sim lock to sun cellular only. You can use the 2nd sim slot to all network.
Usually yung sim 1 is sun locked, then openline yung sim 2.
I have a Sun issued flare and both sims are unlocked…..I am using Globe sim for both Sim slot…..
Kaya pala laging nauubusan ang Flare. :D
Correction: it’s 1500mAh battery capacity. To be exact, it’s 1420.
