After my awesome encounter with Alcatel’s One Touch Idol Ultra and One Touch Scribe HD, another smartphone I’ve got is the Alcatel One Touch Glory 2. Just like its predecessor, the Alcatel Glory 2 is both smart and pocket friendly entry-level smartphone. So, if you want a budget wise smartphone Alcatel Glory 2 is for you.
The box of the Glory 2 is the same as the packaging of the Idol Ultra and Scribe HD. The front of the box has the picture of the phone and the model on the upper part and the name of the brand on the lower right part of the box. At the back are the specifications of the phone and on the left side is bar code color of the unit. It also has the logo of Tour de France which says that Alcatel is an official partner.
The Box Contains
- One Touch Glory 2 handset
- Back Cover
- Mirco USB Cable
- 3.5mm Headset
- 1400 mAh Battery
- Warranty Certificate
- User Guide
- Screen Protector
Built and Specifications
The Alcatel One Touch Glory really fits in my hand. It is small and sexy and I can easily use it with one hand operation. It is quite thicker than Idol Ultra and Scribe HD. It has a smooth finish at the back giving me a good grip while holding it. This is already beautiful for an entry-level smartphone. I haven’t tried it features yet but I will give you an update once I have put the unit on a very good spin.

“We brought colour to this dark entry segment of the smartphone market, which has long been focused on blacks and greys and simple nondescript phones… That not only means colour in the real sense, but also colour in the sense of variety and customization.” – Dan Dery, Chief Marketing Officer at ALCATEL ONE TOUCH
Being small and sexy, Glory is already packed with a 1Ghz CPU. It is very easy to use. It is running on Android Jelly Bean 4.1 but earlier I just had an update to Jelly Bean 4.1.1. It has 3.2MP camera that lets it users capture random photos. This may not be a good as the Idol Ultra and Scribe HD but I can say that it has a lot to offer when competing with other entry-level smartphones from its competitors.
The ALCATEL ONE TOUCH GLORY 2 is available for only P3,999.
