Alcatel Blaze Glory 918N Review

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

 

Alcatel has been relatively quiet in the past couple of years. Although we know that the company’s still alive and kicking from the release of a few handsets, it did not make waves in the mobile phone scene, not even a ripple.  With the new products from the company, though, it appears that Alcatel is trying its best to be somehow relevant, if not anywhere in the world, at least in the Philippines.  I had the chance to review the Alcatel Blaze Glory 918N Android phone and I was genuinely surprised at how good the phone is considering its price. The Alcatel Blaze Glory 918N is a budget phone with a P5,990 price tag and at this price level, it competes directly with the Samsung Galaxy Y.  How does the Alcatel fare against its closest competition? Read on to find out.

 Alcatel Blaze Glory 918N Specifications

  • 3.2 capacitive HVGA screen with 320X480 pixels
  • TFT 262K color display
  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread
  • Dual SIM, Dual Standby
  • 650Mhz processor
  • 256MB RAM
  • Internal memory 2GB (150MB usable), expandable up to 32GB via microSD
  • 3-megapixel camera
  • 3G, Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth 3.0 with A2DP
  • G-Sensor
  • A-GPS, Proximity Sensor, e-Compass
  • HSPA 7.2 Mbps
  • Lithium 1300 mAh battery

Hardware, Design

The Alcatel Blaze Glory 918N is one solid phone.  The materials used are sturdy and you feel a little heft when you hold it in your hand.  The unit I reviewed has the aubergine color, which is simply differentiated from the black version by silver accents and a brownish back cover.  Between the aubergine version and the black version, I like the latter better.

The Alcatel Blaze Glory 918N has piano black side trimming while the back cover has a rubbery finish that prevents the phone from accidentally slipping from your hand. The bottom front of the phone hosts three capacitive buttons which are Menu, Search and Back buttons, and below them is the physical, clickable Home button.  On the right side are the volume rocker and the power button, while on the left side is the micro USB slot for charging and connecting to PC.  At the top of the phone is the 3.5mm earphone slot, while at the back are the camera and the speaker grille.

   

The Blaze Glory 918N sports a 650MHz processor but believe me, it doesn’t feel slow.  It has a 3 megapixel back camera but sadly it doesn’t have flash.  It also doesn’t have a front camera.  But for the price of this handset, I can manage without the flash or the front-facing camera.  In terms of connectivity options, Alcatel did not skimp.  It has 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth 3.0 with A2DP, and even HSPA.  A2DP in Bluetooth is a nice feature as it allows you to use a Bluetooth headset for audio playback.

One of the star features of the Blaze Glory 918N is arguably the screen.  The screen of this handset is sharp considering the price, and honestly, it’s as sharp as the screen on the Smart Netphone 701.  The colors are nice too and it has decent viewing angles.

The difference in display quality between the Alcatel Blaze Glory 918N and the Samsung Galaxy Y is huge.  The Blaze Glory features a 3.2-inch screen with 320×480 pixel resolution, while the Galaxy Y has a 3-inch screen with a lower 240×320 pixel resolution.  While I was frustrated with the screen of the Galaxy Y, I was surprised at how good the screen of the Blaze Glory is.  It’s sharper, has better color reproduction, and has better viewing angles.  If the screen on the Galaxy Y sort of kills the user experience, the Blaze Glory’s screen enhances it.  Here is the Alcatel Blaze Glory 918N beside the Samsung Galaxy Y.

 

And here is the Blaze Glory beside an iPhone 4 and a Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

Of course the other thing that sets the Blaze Glory apart is the dual-SIM, dual standby feature.  For the price of this handset, a dual-SIM functionality is a really just a bonus.  The dual-SIM feature works well on this phone and I expect users with multiple SIMs to find this highly useful.

Performance, Camera

Compared with the Samsung Galaxy Y, the Blaze Glory 918N feels snappier and faster.  The slower performance of the Galaxy Y could be blamed on the TouchWiz skin, but I can’t be really sure.  In my experience using both phones, I was more satisfied with the Alcatel Blaze Glory 918N.  The screen is more responsive and the apps load faster.  Don’t expect a smooth experience on graphics-heavy apps though as sometimes the screen stutters.  But for basic games and applications, the Blaze Glory is quick and responsive.

The battery life of the Blaze Glory 918N will suffice if you are not big on browsing or playing multimedia.  If you regularly do these stuff though, the phone’s 1300 mAh battery will not last you the whole day.  But if you only browse occasionally and play some MP3s or maybe short videos, the battery will get you a little farther.

The Blaze Glory has a decent camera.  Its 3-megapixel sensor is much better than the 2-megapixel sensor on the Galaxy Y.  On the Galaxy Y you get practically useless shots with ultra-low contrast and low sharpness level.  Photos taken by the Blaze Glory are much better and just right for the price range.  I will update this post with sample shots from the Blaze Glory.

Wrap-Up

The Alcatel Blaze Glory 918N is a bang for buck handset.  It’s retails at only P5,990 but for this price you get a nice 3.2-inch screen, dual-SIM functionality, 3G and HSPA, a 3 megapixel camera, Bluetooth 3.0 with A2DP, and of course Android 2.3 Gingerbread.  You normally don’t get these features on an Android phone with this price.  The phone’s solid construction belies this phone’s price and if there’s any trade-off I see, it’s the 650MHz processor, which I don’t find insufficient.  In terms of performance, this processor surprisingly gives you a snappy interface and a decent speed in loading and using apps.

Considering that the Alcatel Blaze Glory 918N has the same price as the Samsung Galaxy Y, it’s but natural to compare the two handsets.  I was able to use both and there’s no doubt in my mind that the Blaze Glory easily wins over the Galaxy Y.  The display is the main point of comparison and its where the Galaxy Y falters and the Blaze Glory shines.  The Blaze Glory also leads the Galaxy Y in terms of overall features, and although the Blaze Glory has a slower processor, it’s not slower in performance.  If camera quality is important to you, the Blaze Glory delivers better photos so there’s no contest when it comes to this.

  47.  Hi. Just got this phone one week ago from Sun. Ok sya, I’m surprised na tumagal ng 2 whole days yung battery. Ang problem lang ay yung internal memory, maliit lang. Tapos ang daming preinstalled apps na di ko madelete. Pano po ba gawin yun na di mavo-void ang warranty?

    This is user-friendly kasi android sya, madami kang makukuhang tips sa internet.

    Yup, I use alphanumeric keyboard using Touchpal app na preinstalled na. May isa pa silang keyboard, yung Cootek, qwerty ang layout pero 2 letters/key, so puede sa may matatabang daliri tulad ko. 😀

      the best yung touchpal keyboard, ayusin mo lang yung settings ng language and keyboard.. para mas madali mag text, katulad din ng samsung.

    I just bought mine last week.I was looking for a phone that houses 2 sim cards as my previous one has 2.  I was ready to get an Samsung or an IPhone before buying ALcatel Blaze, but I reconsidered as it will mean a 24mos.lock up period to a service provider and another monthly installment on the unit, and for me it seems a long time paying for this unit and it would mean using 1 sim only and another phone for the other. Inconvenience ! When I searched the internet, I came across this review and had second thoughts. It has the features I ‘m looking for in a phone.  I liked the reviews and also,  Samsung is all over the market (plus, I hate the idea of having so many people sharing the same phone) so I opted buying this. Now, for once I got what I wanted at a very affordable price.  Very easy to download, clarity is very good and indeed, it has an easy grip feature, hindi sya madulas.  Love this phone .  As what the review said, battery will last if you use the applications sparingly.  I suppose all android phones use up so much battery life anyway.

    got this phone the white one..  really a bang for the buck. This is my second android phone. The first one was the galaxy Y and comparing it with 
    Alcatel Blaze Glory 918N I could definitely say this much better overall than SGY. For those who find the keyboard small for your fingertips. Try to  download an app called Numberpad keyboard & set it as your default keypad.

    im really comparing the galaxy phone and diz alcatel, coz my dad and i are going to have are plan in SUN cell….can you gve me a reason y would i choose this phone plz….

  55. Hi Technobaboy, I just want to know if the input keys for this can be changed from QWERTY to alphanumeric (i.e. traditional key input layout)? I don’t think 3.2″ screen is big enough for my hands to use QWERTY layout keys.

    • the standard keyboard cannot be changed to alphanumeric. But I believe other apps from Google Play has this feature. 

      • I asked the sales lady if it can have alphanumeric keypad layout and she demoed it to me. I think she selected the keypad called “TouchPal” which was pre loaded in the phone (I am not sure if this is the case for all).

        After seeing that, I bought one (white) unit and now my wife is enjoying her new dual-sim phone.

    • san k nakabili??? puro out of stock kasi s SM North. thanks!

      • Bought mine at SM Southmall, but the phone I got was also the last one during that time.

        • finally, nkabili din aq s SM North for only 5700, kaso black lng ung available

          • That’s great! I bought mine for a higher price, though. Bakit kaya ganun?

            I also got the black one. Good thing I love black. 🙂

            • wag ka na bumili nyan pagint tlga hehe.. xperia mini kana 1ghz processor . meaning it support adobe flash player

  66. Pwede ba gamitin ang qwerty keyboard in landscape mode? wala kasi akong nakikitang pics showing that it is possible e.

    • Since this is a new unit, I doubt there’s a jelly case available. Maybe next month pa.

    • I asked the woman behind the Alcatel stall and she said it’s a promo price, which means it will increase up to 8K or more after a few weeks ata. So I think now’s the right time to buy it while it’s still this cheap.

    For potential Android users on a budget, this is easily a better buy than the Galaxy Y.

    A friend of mine just bought one of these and has his postpaid phone line as the second SIM. He plans to buy a Sun Broadband SIM with unlimited usage and load it as the phone’s primary SIM, to enjoy unlimited data at a cheaper price than if he got unlimited surfing with Globe or Smart.

    • Lenovo A60 is much better. You wont have a problem sending sms from any of the sims while data is active. While for both dual sim alcatels (890D and this one) sms sending fails while data is active.

      And besides, Lenovo A60 already has a forum to support rooting, upgrade to ROMs et al.
