Alcatel One Touch Glory runs Android 2.3, Dual SIM for Php 5,699.00

Written by Jayvee Fernandez

Dual SIM Android phones are starting to reveal themselves to the market for mind boggling price points. Take Alcatel’s One Touch Glory (918N) for instance. Really, if you’re in the market for an Android smartphone (so you can play Angry Birds, Where’s My Water and Cut the Rope) that can strike a balance between usability and the frugal limitations of your wallet the Glory 918N seems to be the perfect choice especially if you intend to put in two SIM cards (i.e. Smart and SUN).

The only downside of this phone (and it’s a small one) is that the dual SIM feature is limited to dual standby only as compared to being both dual standby and dual active. This means that if you’re on a call on SIM 1, the other SIM gets disabled and will not be able to have call waiting on (SMS will work). But really, in an age of data connectivity, this isn’t such a big deal.

Price: 5,699.00

Pros
– Dual SIM
– Great price point
– 320×480 resolution (beats the crap out of the Samsung Galaxy Y)

Cons
– Dual SIM functionality is limited to Dual standby only

Bottomline
It’s an affordable Android phone I’d gladly recommend.
