Alcatel One Touch GLAM 810D Fashion and Function in One!

If you can recall, I once shared our happy experience with our very first Alcatel modelled T-806D. (see previous entry)  I have to admit at first, we had our doubts because it was very cheap and yet it offers a lot of functions.  But it's been a year and the phone is still working well.  Support is also very good.  I once had a question and posted it on Alcatel Mobile Philippines facebook fanpage.  The Alcatel Support personally messaged me.  After three days, I was surprised that they were even the one to ask me if I figured it out already.

I was very fortunate to get to preview their new fashionable and functional phones the Alcatel One Touch GLAM 810D and the Alcatel One Touch Blaze Glory 918N during the Alcatel Fashion meets Tech Press Launch.

When I first saw the Alcatel One Touch GLAM 810D, I was instantly attracted to its looks.  It was so chiq and cute!  What a brilliant idea to have the phone designed as a powder compact.  Plus, the colors are so nice.  It was Mystery Pink and Light Chrome.  I think the Mystery Pink is just adorable!

I was amazed that in its compact size and share, the Alcatel One Touch GLAM 810D had a QWERTY keyboard for fast text and typing.  It also has a 2.4" screen which was just the right size for easy reading.

Upon closing the clam shell-type Alcatel One Touch GLAM 810D, it made a cute sound and there was a whirling pinwheel.  Soon, the LED display showed the time.  I thought... how convenient that you can also use it like a watch without having to flip it open.

  • Function
More important than the fashionable exteriors is the function.  The function that enticed me is that despite being compact, the Alcatel One Touch GLAM 810D is Dual SIM phone.  It also has a music player.  I'm happy to hear that it has the standard 3.5 audio headset because I want to use my preferred headphones.  The phone has a 2 mega-pixel camera so you can snapshot anytime you want.  You can even take a picture of your crushes or favorite stars while pretending to be powdering. =p  Since you'll be taking some photos and you are expecting a lot of messages from your two SIMs, you need more memory.   The Alcatel One Touch GLAM 810D has a Micro SD card slot for expandable memory.

The Alcatel One Touch GLAM 810D is amazing because it is fashion and function in one.  I was surprised that it was priced at only 3,999 php ($91).  However, although the phone is complete with mobile browser like opera mini and social apps such facebook and twitter, it does not have a WiFi.  I guess that's the downside of Alcatel One Touch GLAM 810D's affordable price tag.
