8 Things I Love About Alcatel Sapphire 2

Here is a list of the things I love about my new Alcatel One Touch Sapphire 2.  I bought mine just last week.

1.  Dual Sim Phone - It is a significant factor when I decided to buy a new phone.  I needed a phone that has a dual sim capability.  I am using 2 different phones from two different providers.  I use one sim more for personal reasons and the other one for professional/business communication.  I noticed that I tend to take one for granted, meaning sometimes I would forgot one phone or forgot to charge it because I didn't use it for a few days.  Bringing two cellphones and all the peripherals that came with it is also not practical.  So I thought that a 2-in-1 phone, an Alcatel Sapphire 2, would really be a minimalist move.

2.  Smart Phone - The two cellphones I had before was one with the basic features (old model) and the other one is a smart phone with an old android system.  With my growing need to electronically organize and do more with a cellphone, choosing a model, Alcatel Sapphire 2, with a newer version of Android is a no brainer.

3.  Camera - I want a decent one that can take clear pictures and clear videos.  I was not disappointed with Alcatel Sapphire 2 at all, I even uploaded some pictures directly from my phone to Facebook.  It also has a panoramic mode.  It has a LED flash that acts as a flashlight and if you need to capture videos in a not so lighted venue then it can light up the scene.

4.  Sound - The speaker of Alcatel Sapphire 2 is loud and clear enough to enjoy the music.

5.  Video Playback - The screen is 4.5" and QHD 540 x 960 pixels so you can watch movies on the fly with Alcatel Sapphire 2.

6.  Battery - For a moderate user like me, I usually charge the phone every other day.  Sometimes I don't even turn off the WIFI and it can last up to 2.5 days.  I love that Alcatel Sapphire 2 has 1800 mAh unlike other phones with almost similar features.

7.  Speed - It's fast enough for me coming from a 600 MHZ CPU phone.  I am not a heavy gamer with my phone, but the games I've downloaded with Alcatel Sapphire 2 like Temple Run 2, Cut the Rope and others run smoothly.

8.  Physical Build - Well even if I still haven't bought a phone case, the Alcatel Sapphire 2 doesn't feel too fragile unlike some of the phones that I checked.  It seems sturdy.

    1. Hi! My Alcatel Sapphire 2 is bare. I haven't found any case compatible with it. There are some selling the case specifically for Sapphire 2 but it's quite expensive pa.

    1. There are several possible reasons. If you are playing a video (own video) it may not be compatible with the player and you may need to download an app to play it. If you are playing a video on youtube then you should not have a problem unless your wifi signal is very weak. If you are playing a video from other sites, it may not be compatible with your browser. Or it could be a matter of a limited storage space for your cellphone to process your video playing.
