Alcatel One Touch Blaze Glory 918N Review

Alcatel One Touch Blaze Glory 918N Review

| On 03, Jun 2012

One of the best entry-level android phone currently available in the Philippine market, the Alcatel One Touch 918N (or Alcatel Blaze Glory 918N) made a lot of noise in the smartphone arena with its great features even with its low price tag. However, Alcatel is new to the game from people’s eyes eventhough they’ve been in the android craze for quite a while now. Is it worth it against its direct competitors – the Samsung Galaxy Y and LG Optimus L3? Read on our full Alcatel One Touch 918N review to find out.

What’s in the Box?

Alcatel One Touch Blaze Glory 918N Box Contents

The white Alcatel box contains the unit itself and other accessories – charger, earphones, USB cable, screen protector, warranty cards, manuals, and a free 2GB memory card. A complete package.

Hardware and Design

The build of the device is solid and firm which gives a very nice feel when you hold it because it is just right for the palm. The case of the handset is made up of plastic but it doesn’t look cheap at all instead it flaunts a premium and luxurious look which don’t indicate its real price. It also has a medium-sized 3.2-inch HVGA multi-touch glass screen display at 320×480 pixels with crisp presentation of the UI, Images, Videos, and even games. Its display is way too good and a notch clearer when compared to the QVGA 240×320 pixels display of other phones within the Php6,000 price range.

In front, there are a number of touch controlled panels with only one physical button. First is the menu, search, and the back button which are very quick to respond when tapped. The single physical button is the home button. At the back, when can see the camera and the One Touch label below.The 3.5mm earphone port is solely located at the top. Located at the right side is the volume rocker and the power button. The charger and micro USB port can be found on the left side.

Software/OS/Performance

Alcatel One Touch Blaze Glory 918N 2

The Alcatel One Touch 918N comes pre loaded with Android 2.3.5 Gingerbead. It may not be the latest android operating system but it is one of the recent ones so it may be concluded that it has tons of available apps in the Play Store. Additionally, we cannot expect an android ICS phone at the budget level – at least for now. The device handles Gingerbread smoothly using its 650MHz processor that operates with very little to no lag and it just take a few minor seconds when opening a rather heavy app or game. It has a total of 5 homescreens that you can fill with shorcuts to your favorite widgets or apps/games. The notification bar has a great look with three shortcut panes that you can slide back and forth from left to right for easy configuration of the scree brightness, auto-rotation, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, etc. Of course, if you don’t like the default launcher (like me), there are a variety of other substitutes available in the Google Play store.

What’s really bothering is the presence of lots of stock apps bundled with the phone by Alcatel. They are just space consuming and it reduced the available memory from 150MB to only about 94MB. Some of those apps are pretty useless and it’s really annoying that you have to keep them with you – unless you consider rooting. It’s 3MP camera is also good enough to capture some of your precious moments in case you don’t have a camera with you. See the sample shot below.

Alcatel One Touch Blaze Glory 918N Sample Shot

Dual-SIM Feature

Dual-SIM’s were now more valuable and appreciated these days with the fast-paced lifestyle of many people. The Alcatel One Touch 918N’s presentation of the feature is nice and you can see the status of your two networks over the lockscreen and the drop-down notification bar. The two SIM’s were working simultaneously and it has the harmonious integration when trying to use the two network altogether because you can easily switch in to your preferred operator. It worked well and didn’t produced any troubles.

Gaming

In terms of gaming, it performs fairly well and I’ve managed to play the popular games: Angry Birds, Cut the Rope, and Fruit Ninja among others without bumping into any problems. Furthermore, a credit for the vivid display is also a must because it contributes a lot in the whole gaming experience. On the other hand, the handset can only handle the basic and not so heavy games due to the mediocre 650MHz processor and 256MB RAM.

Internet Browsing

alcatel-glory-android-internet

The internet browsing is pretty decent using the native android browser and is also very much faster using Opera. The Wi-Fi locks in quickly and instanly when I tried to connect it to my phone which I used as a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot. When using mobile data, I ain’t got any problem too because the configuration was already there just like other android handsets so all I need was the load or internet promo. The multi-touch feature works very well and is very useful so you can easily zoom in and out when navigating some big web pages. I also used social networking apps like Facebook and Twitter for android and I must say that surfing is flawless.

Battery Life

The battery life seems fine and acceptable for an android phone. With several hours playing games, a few messages and calls, the Alcatel Blaze Glory 918N managed to squeeze in a whole day with a fraction of the battery still spared. If it will be used only for texting and calling, it can last about 2-3 days or maybe even more depending on usage.

Conclusion

alcatel-blaze-glory-x-review

The Alcatel Blaze Glory 918N is a good ticket to start your entry into the android world. It has lots of  good features that an android phone need without requiring you to use up a large part of your savings. From the dual-SIM feature to gaming and internet browsing, this cool smartphone got it all covered.

Honestly, I’m surprised on how fast the device is considering it only has a 650MHz chip inside it. It is very snappy especially on the usual things that an android phone do. Overall, I highly recommended it because it’s definitely a bang for buck android phone at a price of Php5,999. As for the question I posted above, I think the Alcatel Blaze Glory 918N is the best among its competitors.

*Price UPDATE: The device now costs only Php4,990.

  • http://coffeecone.com/ S. Surashu

    I’ve been looking for the profile of this phone on GSMArena or any other spec-list sites. Can you point me to one of them? I’d really appreciate it.

  • joykill

  • Cherryrose74

    how to set my downloaded apps to install it to my SD mem card?

    • http://coffeecone.com/ S. Surashu

      Go to Settings > Applications > Manager Applications then tap on the app you want to move and finally, tap on Move to SD. Not all apps support this though.

  • Anonymous

    bakit di po ako makalaro ng temple run at plants versus zombies dito?

    • http://www.noypigeeks.com/ NoypiGeeks

      It doesn’t have enough power in its processor to handle those HD games.

  • Guest

    Is VIBER possible for Alcatel Blaze Glory 918N?

    • http://www.noypigeeks.com/ NoypiGeeks

      Yes. Definitely.

  • erb

    pag nag download ako ng app full memory na. tapos malaki pan naman and sd card. ano ang dapat gawin para deretso sa sd card ang downloads?

    • http://www.noypigeeks.com/ NoypiGeeks

      Hi Erb, it only has limited amount of phone memory. If you’ll use apps2SD, not all the parts of the app/game will be moved to the SD card that’s why you cannot install so much apps in Alcatel Glory 918N. If you want a larger space, you can root your phone then try using Link2SD. That way, you can install an ‘almost’ unlimited number of apps as you like. However, clogging it with some 80 apps will slow it down so keep it to about 50. Here’s the tutorial for Link2SD http://www.noypigeeks.com/android/tutorial-a-guide-to-link2sd/

      • Charles

        how to root the phone po ba?

        • http://www.noypigeeks.com/ NoypiGeeks

          Hi Charles, I don’t have a tutorial for that but I think you can find it over the XDA forums. Search for it in Google and you’ll find it. Hope this helps!

  • Randy

      • eldric

        • http://www.noypigeeks.com/ NoypiGeeks

          I’ll check on it and try it out.

  • yeni

    hello po. may portable wifi po to tama? di po kasi gumagana yung akin. pano po gagawin ko?

    • http://www.noypigeeks.com/ NoypiGeeks

      Wireless Networks > Tethering – it is there. Turn it on and you’re good to go. What I’ve noticed in the built-in WiFi tethering of android is that only one phone (either yours or others) can connect to the internet from that connection. It is just based on my experience though. I use a WiFi tethering app called Open Garden which lets you to have multiple device hosted on your phone. It is available for free in Play Store.

  • patricia

    hello.. very helpful blog, shared it on Facebook.. pano pala yung portable wifi? kahit walang wifi makaka-connect? (sorry wala kasi ko masyado alam sa wifi).. at pano pala ito i-root? try ko ngayon yung link2sd tutorial mo.. thank you.. :)

  • http://www.facebook.com/rejnoces1008 Regin Taay Noces

    Hi, good morning.
    I have a bit problem in using the dual sim card feature of my phone.
    I have these phone for about 4 months from suncell.
    But this is the only time that I’ll use the 2nd sim slot.
    The sim card can not be read, and I only bought it yesterday.
    Thank you in advance.

    • http://www.noypigeeks.com/ NoypiGeeks

      Maybe it is locked in the network?

    • Athan7274

      if its accompanied by suncellular postpaid sim..of course it will be locked only on suncellular

    • Melonaide

      Try interchanging the sim cards. One slot is locked for suncell and the other is open line. I got mine running two sims from different networks.

  • Athan7274

    alcatel glory 918n is eg right?does anyone tried using video call features via SKYPE?

    • Athan7274

      3G i mean

      • http://www.noypigeeks.com/ NoypiGeeks

        Yes, the first SIM is 3G. No, it doesn’t have a front camera.

  • http://supremewealthalliance.com/id/index.php?ref=growrichnow Paula

    hello po,

    need help. nahihirapan ko po yung configure yung internet connection ng alcatel 918n ko. globe po gamit ko

    • http://www.noypigeeks.com/ NoypiGeeks

      Go to Settings > Mobile networks > Access Point Names > Create new APN >

      Name: Any name
      APN: http:globe.com.ph
      APN Type: default

      Set it as your default setting then you’re good to surf.

        • http://www.noypigeeks.com/ NoypiGeeks

          No problem. =)

  • joem

    Hi,

    This is with regards to root access, I already created partitions and downloaded the link2sd. I am having problems on how to ‘allow’ or grant’ to the superuser.

    • joem

      please help po, I;m not really familiar with the apps thanks

      • http://www.noypigeeks.com/ NoypiGeeks

        You should root your phone first in order to allow superuser permission. I’ve mentioned that it should be rooted to make Link2SD work.

  • among khaleb

    hey, my alcatel 918N is madaling malowbat even though hindi q sya ginagamit medyo, cguro 1 day tlaga ung life span nya totally pag hindi q gnamit wholeday. i tried to installed battery saver but it doesnt work so plssssss help me to solve my problem..

    • http://www.noypigeeks.com/ NoypiGeeks

      Switch your Mobile Network from 3G to 2G. You can find it in Settings > Wireless Networks > Mobile Networks > Network Preferences.

      Also, disable all unneeded connection such as Wi-Fi, Mobile Data, and Bluetooth if not in use. Lower the screen brightness to a acceptable level as it gives a big boost to battery life.
      Android phones really drains battery faster against other phones (i. e. Nokia) so you will soon get used to it. Follow my tips and it can bring you a couple of hours more. Cheers!

      • among khaleb

        i tried all u said be4 i killed the running background,lower the screen brightness..nothing happened!!so should i buy new battery?.there is a alcatel center near in manila ba?how much the battery?thanks!!!

        • http://www.noypigeeks.com/ NoypiGeeks

          Actually, that’s the downside of android phones(although not all). It lacks sufficient power so better get used to it and save as much power as you can to get you through the day. The one with me lasts long enough though as per my experience.

        • Naulc13

          I am happy with my battery mga one and a half days bago ma drain considering my usage.

  • Yaay!

    Thanks! I bought this because of your review :) Yaaaaay!

    • http://www.noypigeeks.com/ NoypiGeeks

      Wow that’s great! Thank you very much! How’s your phone? =)

      • Yaay!

        Actually I’m supposed to buy the Dtc gt3 Astroid but you said this is better . That’s why. Haha thanks po ulit! So far, it’s good. There’s no jelly case for this right? I think that’s the disadvantage -_-

        • http://www.noypigeeks.com/ NoypiGeeks

          As of now, wala pa rin ata. Thanks for the trust on my word. =)

          • Yaay!

            You’re welcome ! Cocomment lang po ako pag may problem :) take care!

          • Yaay!

            Dialog box is crazy, my sent messages are all above my received messages! Help ?

          • http://www.noypigeeks.com/ NoypiGeeks

            What do you mean? It is a chat style type of messaging so that’s normal. If I understood your question correctly?

          • Anna

            Same here. Dati po kapag nag rereply ako continuous lang. Ngayon po pag binasa mo yung thread malilito ka kasi hindi na nga po sunod sunod. Eg.

          • v

        • gingkake

          hi, u can install viber in ur phone…but the quality of the voice is different…messaging is ok…

  • http://www.facebook.com/wilhelmpua Pua Wilhelm

    Help please the phone is really slow… how to make it faster?

    • http://www.noypigeeks.com/ NoypiGeeks

      Kill other running apps that are not in use. Try Advance task killer in the Play Store. Another way is by trying v6 supercharger. However, that requires root access but it is very effective IMO.

  • Ahm Malubag

    thanks for the review meyn! Got three units from Sun (group plan) without even researching first (bad move). But after reading your review the risk I made ended up to be a good one. I shared your review on my blog. Thanks again.

    • http://www.noypigeeks.com/ NoypiGeeks

      Thanks for sharing! =)

  • simoun

    Hi, for the user of this phone, hows the battery life? Sa akin kasi di aabot ng isang araw ang battery, may app akong battery indicator pro pag full charge 36hrs lang ang nka lagay for light usage. Can you share your battery experiencem, am about to change it for warranty. thanks

    • http://www.noypigeeks.com/ NoypiGeeks

      It will only last a day or a day and a half for moderate use. Android is really power hungry. That’s normal. If you want a longer battery, disable unnecessary connections and applications.

  • http://www.facebook.com/gladys.barcoteodoro Gladys Barco-Teodoro

    hi, i’d like to know how to dowload application from alcatel glory since as per checking, walang play store yung phone. ask ko narin san pde idownload yung play store application?

    • http://www.noypigeeks.com/ NoypiGeeks

      I think Android Market is the pre-installed Play Store there. Launch it and it will update automatically to Play Store.

  • rofer

    ask ko lang po kung bakit pag nagset ako ng notification tone yung msg tone ko iba pa din kahit highwire na nilagay ko yung heaven pa din ang messge tone nya? nka default naman na yung highwire pag nag open ako.

    • http://www.noypigeeks.com/ NoypiGeeks

      Hi, try to restart the phone and see if the problem persists. Its quite odd.

    • gingkake

      punta ka sa msgs…settings….select ringtone….

  • rofer

    try ko po bluetooth dpo sya mapasahan dko po alam kun bakit pero tutunog yung message tone pero wala nman po natatanggap tpos yung phone na nagsnt ayaw din magtuloy ang pag sent bakit po kaya ganun?

  • jamee

    hi, bkt po ndi mgamit yung isa ku pong sim na globe sa fon yung gumagana lang po ehh yung naka plan na sun??

    • jamee

      please nman po hepl nyo ko kung panu macxonnect yung isa ku pa pong sim na glode tnxx po

      • http://www.noypigeeks.com/ NoypiGeeks

        It is probably locked to the network since it is from SUN. I guess smart will work on that though.

        • jamee

          oww. Is any thing I can do for me to unlock it?

          • http://www.noypigeeks.com/ NoypiGeeks

            I think there is method but I don’t know how to do it. Try to search for it in Google. However, doing so will void your warranty.

          • Naulc13

            I also subscribed to Sun and I got Alcatel Glory 918N dual sim and it is not locked to Sun. I am able to use it with my Globe Sim too

    Good Morning… Sir, how can i install games and play without using my internal memory of alcatel glory phone… only few games i install because of low memory on internal.. is there another way to install by using external memory so that i could play a lot of games without using internal memory..

    • http://www.noypigeeks.com/ NoypiGeeks

      Move the games to the microSD card. However, this is only a minor fix since it really doesn’t have a huge internal memory. You can try using the Link2SD app so that you can install all the games you want but that requires rooting.

    hi admin,

    buti nakita ko tong link, almost a month na sakin yung phone at halos wala pa akong nagagawa kundi dl ng games. takot kasi ako kung tool apps ang iddl ko baka may mali akong makalikot. first time ko sa android and since madali nga mapuno ang int.mem. nagdedice ako magroot gaya ng sinasabi mo para mas lumawak yung space ng phone ko pero first hindi ba makakasama yung pagroot? similar ba sya sa paghack? hindi ba sya masyadong complicated? pagaaralan ko yung procedure but first need ko microsd 8gb. anong class ang best para sa 918 n sir? i hope matulungan mo ako. salamat ng marami.

    What’s the difference with this phone to the glory x aside from the changeable casing?

    Should I get this instead the Galaxy Y or Pocket? Even if its around 250Mhz slower and 256MB RAM less though not really a fan or the resolution and pixel density of Y and pocket. Considering the android experience. This will be my first droid and I will use this phone as my experimental unit on developing, rooting and using custom roms.

    I want to buy Protective casing for my Alcatel glory x 918n. But there’s none. It’s hard to find one, What would be the perfect fit for this phone?

    • Cris

      i bought the case for Nokia C3. It is fit but I made hole for headset connector, speaker and usb connector.

  • ronaldmcjagger

    What’s the use of DRM utility? Is it like a file locker apps for Videos, Music, Picture etc…
    I’ve tried to put some files on it, but it wont let me. it keeps on giving me this message “no protective content is available”. What’s the purpose of that apps? can I just delete it?

    Hi,

    I haven’t been able to get Google Play work. It always shows “Connection Timed Out” whenever I try to connect. Do I need to manually configure something from my device? I’m using 918N Glory X. It does show the same error whether I’m on Wi-Fi or subscribed to Sun Cellular’s Unlimited data plan.
    Please advise.

    Thanks,
    Queenie

    • alwin

      need to hard reset the phone.this will erase every thing and bring the phone to factory settings. First turn off your phone then press volume up and the power button, when the phone is on release the power button. toggle menu with vol up or down and choose reset phone then press home button.

  • Ron

    This phone comes free with Sun Cellular’s basic plan P350. I found using the QWERTY keyboard not so responsive so I had to switch to T9 keyboard layout to have decent input. I believe the touchscreen is only 2 point multitouch. If you’re gonna buy this and you do a lot of typing/texting, I suggest you try typing on this first before buying.

    My nephew attempted to open my phone, using patterns and then it suddenly asked for email address and password. I can’t open it even how many times I turn off and turn on my phone still the same. I need help. I can’t access anything. Every time i put my email address and password got no result. Please help me. thanks!

    • Roselle Nitoral

      To perform hard reset in your phone you need to:

      Long press “# key” and “power on key” simultaneously with the off phone
      then the screen will appear “All data will be lost, continue?” Select
      “Yes” then screen will appear “Formatting flash, please wait.”
      Then the phone will auto switch on. Wait until the process finishes.

  • pj

    I’ve had this phone for less than a year now since I got it free from Sun cellular’s plan at 350. At first, it was fine, just some problems with typing since the android keyboard is a little bit small for my fingers. But now, it’s just 9 months old, it is waaaaaay slow. I need to wait for 30 seconds or something just to open the messages. It is hard for someone who texts and calls alot. It also freezes alot. I don’t even have downloaded apps, nor music, photos and videos, that make the phone slower. I just use it for calls and texts. I don’t recommend this phone. It is irritating me and I’m planning to buy a new one.
