DSC08208

Wow, that was quick

Alctale’s Flash Plus is shaping up to be sleeper hit this year, because of its excellent specs and more importantly, it’s killer price tag. Well, it seems that everybody wants a piece of the Flash Plus, as a source within Lazada has confirmed that the Flash Plus managed to sell out “within minutes” of it going online, beating expectations.

Alcatel Flash Plus specs

  • 1.5GHz MediaTek MT6752M octa-core processor
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 5.5-inch HD IPS OGS display, 1280 x 720 resolution
  • 16GB of storage, expandable via microSD
  • 13-megapixel rear camera, Sony IMX214 sensor
  • 8-megapixel front camera
  • Dual-SIM, dual LTE
  • 3G, LTE
  • WiFI, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS, USB OTG
  • 3,500mAh battery
  • Android 4.4 KitKat
  • Php 6,490

While Lazada hasn’t confirmed just how fast the phone went as of press time, one estimate put the time anywhere around 10 to 15 minutes.

Interestingly enough, Xiaomi’s previous offerings that went up in Lazada almost a year ago failed to gain the same momentum as the Flash Plus in terms of time, and managed to sell out in around an hour.

  1. there was a technical glitch in Lazada that happened last May 11. That could be one reason why it went out of stock within minutes..

  2. for sure dahil sa mga sugapang retailers na naman ang dahilan kaya ubos agad..dapat 1:1 per account..hindi nako magtataka na may magbebenta sa mga MALL na sobrang over ang PRICE!!!!

  3. Next time dagdagan na lang ng alcatel ang stock sa lazada. Gawin ding maximum of 2 per account ang bilihan tsaka wag nilang gayahin ang xiaomi na malalayo ang selling dates. Idol 3 32gb version ang iniintay ko.

  4. sony para sa camera
    asus para sa internal
    iphone para sa mga sossy
    samsung hari ng mga pala kopya
    ito para sa masa

    1. Sony for camera? Ermmm… siguro sa sensor lang lol~ S6 and iP6 still holds the top ranks in mobile cameras according to DxO.

  5. Like the comments above, they are probably sold to someone who wants to sell them at an overpriced range, but if they sell it to the masses for 6999php then i forgive them.

  6. Swerte ko pala. Nakabili ako kanina for just 6,190 through the Lazada app. Ginamit ko yung MAYDAY300 coupon kaya 300 pesos off.

  7. They misled hundreds of people in their so called EXCLUSIVE dealership of flash plus. Never did they mention it was limited.They should not run out of stock because they should expect a high volume buyer. The promotion is like UNTRUTHFUL IN ADVERTISING. a violation of advertising code.

    1. Dude walang unlimited rice sa lazada. Normal lang na ma out of stock ang inventory dahil di naman santa’s elves ang gumagawa sa mga factory. Ang kailangan lang gawin ng alcatel e wag patagalin ang out of stock status. Kahit naman sa mall, kelangan mong magpareserve pag nauubos ang S6 at iPhone.

    2. I saw in a blog somewhere they will only be releasing 2500 units for Lazada. It will be available in physical stores around August this year. I dunno how reliable that blog is.

  8. Happy buyer ar 12:02pm on May 15. Loving the phone! To be quite honest, the plastic material isnt far from the feel of CM Flare 3, just bigger. That’s not necessarily a bad thing.

  9. @bigben ok ba siya? paki share more of your thoughts nman?
    anyways i have successfully ordered 1 but up to now dipa dumadating kaya excited ako 🙂

    1. How was it? 🙂 Not a deal-breaker for me but I couldn’t seem to make Dead Trigger 2 to work. It always crashes, hanggang intro lang. The camera is also kinda slow but I like the quality so long as the object isn’t moving. Tried the manual controls… ay wala pala. haha! Also I couldn’t seem to make LTE work. Not parting with it, I like it overall.

  10. For my case, I waited till 12pm and then refreshed the Alcatel Flash Plus page which I had opened already. I then went through the order process as it was still in stock. However, I felt I will be more happy and satisfied with the Gold version. To cut it short, I didn’t go through with my order. After about a 3 mins., the unit was out of stock. That was May 15, but I checked again today, May 18, and Lazada says it’s in stock again. Alas, no Gold!!!!
