Alcatel One Touch Soleil Specs and Price in PH

Jun 2, 2013

A few people asked that I do a post on this phone. This phone is available from Sun Network. So here are some of the released specs of the Alcatel One Touch Soleil.

Here are the technical specification of the Alcatel One Touch Soleil.

Alcatel One Touch Soleil

There are some missing specs here. I am also doubtful about its RAM and ROM. Hoping official specs will be available soon. What do you think about this phone?

  2. I hope there's a way to confirm the ROM and RAM of this phone. It's also weird that only SUN offers this (correct me if i'm wrong).. Do other shops or malls offer this phone too? I really want to know it's features better..

    1. I can't search its features anywhere. That's weird.

    2. Parang exclusive to sun po ito. :)

      Delete
    3. sun does offer this, I got mine an hour ago. Pretty much basic stuff, Though it's a little annoying how I can't reduce the number of home screen, and some other stuff other phones could personalize. by far I'm not loving it as much I loved my HTC explorer installed with custom rom cyanogenmod 10. Not saying it's better, Maybe I just need some time to adjust.

  10. gusto ko pa man din sanang kumuha ng plan nito kaso questionable pa ang RAM at Batt niya. hehehe. ako rin wala akong makitang full spec nito ke google. nakapagtataka naman.. at tama rin yung nabanggit na wala rin sa database ng alcatel ang soleil, na wewerduhan talaga ako dito sa phone na ito. hmmmmnnn. there must be something fishy....

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I kind of thought it was fishy at first pero baka naman model talaga sya ng alcatel. it's just renamed or something. katulad ng spop, mpop(inspire2) and xpop(sapphire).

  12. Just got the fone from sun so far ok nmn sa spec ung phone memory nya is 2.33G then procesor nya dual core at sobra bilis ne2 mag browes

    ReplyDelete
  13. Maganda po ba ito? sa mga mayroon?

    ReplyDelete
  14. initial experience ko kung quick boot mga 5 sec lang on na sya. 512 ram lang sya pero mabilis. d sya laggy compared to my experia x10 mini pro.

    pero di ko recommend sa mga mahilig sa root. exclusive lang ata sa sun to just like iphone before na pang att lng sya sa america.. di jo tuloy ma explore ang pure power nito.

    sa batt naman medyo me sakit din sya tulad ng ibang android dyan. run ko yung calbration mga 10 hours lang batt nya. naka on wifi + data. running gmail twitter facebook saka call and txt paminsan minsan. ang masaya pa pang subrang init ng batt merong prompt na patayin sya.

    so yun lang kayo na maghusga..

  15. Got this phone 2 days ago..from sun postpaid royalty.
    it has a MediaTek MT6577 features a dual 1GHz Cortex™-A9 application processor from ARM, a PowerVR™ Series5 SGX GPU from Imagination Technologies, MediaTek’s proven 3G/HSPA modem, and runs the latest Android 4.0 "Ice Cream Sandwich".By integrating a dual-core application processor architecture widely deployed in the majority of today’s premium smartphones, the MT6577 boosts application and browser performance by up to 40% compared to single-core platform.


    from camera adjustment it has an 8 mega pixel camera not 5M.
    IPS screen is questionable , I think it is not IPS.screen. pixel resolution 480 x 800.
    Battery is very Bad it only 1400 mah. mabilis mag low bat.

    ang maganda lang sa kanya ay mabilis dahil dual core .

    comparable ang cpu niya sa iphone 4s sa bilis.

    3. Got the same phone from sun last week. Sakit sa ulo yung battery. Bilis mag low batt. Seriously, sobrang nag-sisi ako after. 100% after 4 hours, dead batt. kada minute, bawas sa % ng batt. :/ Di pa naka on yung wifi ko or anything Hay.

  27. Got mine from sun 2 days ago
    3 pa nga kinuha q for the fam

    So far I am liking the phone,unlike ung mga old alcatel phones dati na parang mahihiya ka ilabas,this phone is very very nice.. I didn't expect to like it but I do..

    Un lng talaga ung bat mejo mabilis ma drain,expected na siguro yun sa mga android phones..

    Jelkybean ang os nya

    And the rear cam is fine..kahit walang flash it still is a decent cam..

    For its price? I'd say it's a good find..

  29. Ok tong phone na to. I got mine from sun 2 days ago. At first the plan was ibebenta ko sya but when I used it, di ko inexpect na magugustuhan ko sya so di ko na binenta.. SUPER BILIS NIYA, MAGANDA PA RESOLUTION NG SCREEN so far pwede ko I-compare ang speed Nya sa apple products... Kasi I have iPad 3 and and itouch Pareho Lang ang speed pag dating sa apps and sa pagbrowse never pa naglag.. Pero ang batt syempre the usual... Madali madrain depende sa gamit mo pero hindi problem yun Kung meron kang extra batt or portable charger na handy..

    In short, I'm recommending this phone. Ü

  32. Ask ko lang po kase Dual sim card ito pero naka lock ang sim 1 exclusively sa SUN, will it work overseas kung naka Roaming ang Sun sim card mo..thanks

    ReplyDelete
  33. Sun gave me my free Alcatel Soleil a few days ago. It's a great phone with very good camera and memory capacity. I'm a heavy mobile internet user and I must say this unit has not disappointed me one bit. Resolution is also great. Downloading and using apps has never been a problem.

    I got my Alcatel for free, but hey, this is an honest review. :-)Buying it would be worth it.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Got this phone now lang sbi nila sim1 is sunlock pro gumana nman ang smart ko..cam is good display is crispier than sapphire 2..mabilis at mas reliable sa ibang 4" category..running jelly bean and oh..may led notifications sya nagbliblink pag may txt emails at fb alert..

    Nagcopy and paste lng ako galing dun sa isang nagcomment, curious lng, nalalaro ba tlga ung NBA2k13 dito sa phone na 'to? i have Cloudfone Thrill 430g and it's the same GPU Type compare to Soleil, naginstall ako ng NBA2k13 sa phone ko pero hindi ko naenjoy dahil hindi kaya ng GPU, sobrang lag. yun lng, feel ko hindi to ganon kaganda pagdating sa games lalo pag HD games. pinagpipilian ko pa kasi kung Soleil ba o CM Burst kukunin ko from Sun, sabi nila 2-3 days pagprocess dahil nagupgrade lng ako ng plan.

    3. @Pao, sinasabi ko lng po ung GPU, that's it. kung naka Adreno sana ang GPU nyan mas smooth sya sa HD Games. zzz.

      @Jomar Corpuz, so mas ok pala ang Soleil kesa Burst? hehe. nagtitingin tingin din kasi ako ng mga reviews eh. dami ngang negative comments sa Burst. d ko alam dun, pero halos same lng nman ng speces ang Flare at ang Burst, pero pagdating sa gaming walang kwenta Burst, though 1.2ghz ung Flare tapos ung Burst 1ghz, konti lng difference pero bkit kaya laggy ang Burst? thanks po sa feedback. :) may LED notification ba ang Soleil?

    Sa mga interesado sa phone na to, WORTH IT yung pag apply niyo nito. Galing talaga sa games, resolution is fine. display is clear. and camera is decent kahit walang flash.

  88. hello there! I have a plan350 on suncellular and I already submitted the form for applying a new term. I picked alcatel soleil kasi parang yun lang yun maganda na offer but still, Im thinking if I will really like it. As a searched on for the following specs, wla masyado mahanap, in fact wala din case.and as an alcatel user, tulad din ba sya ng alcatel glory 918 na hindi mabubura bura ang mga widgets na di nman useful?also the camera pagkalakas lakas naman nh sound pag nagtetake ng picture.I hope medyo okayANG SOLEIL/...

  92. Battery saver apps are useless. :3 dagdag lng po un sa mga running apps, hindi naman sya talaga nakakatulong, I suggest na idisable nyo ung mga bloatwares such as Maps, Email, Streetview, etc. ung mga apps na hindi nyo naman ginagamit, nasa settings un sa applications, tapos tap nyo ung app na ididisable nyo, tapos makikita nyo dun may disable. aun. :) tapos babaan nyo ung brightness ng phone, disconnect nyo din mga wireless connections kung hindi naman ginagamit, Bluetooth, Wifi, Data connection, mga ganon. yan na un.

    1. I have been using this phone for two weeks now and no complains. I stumble upon a phone shop around cubao where they display dummy phones of Alcatel. Due to the fact that for two weeks research on avail covers for my soleil failed, I thought of comparing it to other Alcatel mobile phones that might have the same physical specs as that of my soleil. Alcatel inspire 2 struck me most. Soleil and inspire 2 are perfect fit base on my meticulous comparison of both phones. If anyone who encountered same experience pls do confirm.. Tia

  104. just got the phone from sun plan 350. i chose the white casing. no memory card included so you have to buy one or use your old card. btw, 30months lock in period ang plan.

    observations: since 1GHz ang unit i assumed mabilis ang phone at di naman ako nabigo sa expectations ko, mabilis sya. okay ang response ng lcd. maganda ang graphics ng lcd. mabilis ma low bat. ang camera ay 5MP kaso di magagamit sa dilim since walang flash. daming factory installed apps so i uninstalled some. 4gb ang internal storage.

    overall verdict: sulit yun phone for a sun 350 plan but not recommended for unit purchases only.

  117. ANONYMOUS REVIEW PART 1 of 3

    WARNING: do not read kung ayaw mong bumasa ng mahabang post. this is as honest as can possibly be.
    This is mostly intended for those who want customer reviews about the ALCATEL OT SOLEIL (M'POP) and are trying to decide whether to buy the phone or go for something else.

    here goes....

    i got my alcatel soleil from suncellular last wednesday at ito mga na-observe ko. i will be very objective kasi never ako naging fan ng any brand ng gadget.
    btw, alcatel soleil is also known as alcatel OT m'pop. however, there are different configurations like 5021e, 5020w.

    look and feel:
    i chose plan 350 sa sun kasi i dont have much sun contacts and i just want to change number and at the same time try a different network and take advantage na rin of the free phone offers.
    i was afraid that the soleil would look as ugly as the picture on the sun flyers (yon ba tawag doon? yong mga papel na nakikita sa shops nila).
    pero nong nakuha ko na yong phone, i was so glad that it looked way better than i expected. i got the black one. im not sure if there are other colors.
    it doesn't look as cheap as it does in the picture sa flyers. in fact, i should say it looks better than my 4-year old samsung omnia. kahit na siguro when my omnia was still new. neither does it feel cheap in your hands. kaya lng, at 8.4 cm wide, medyo hindi ako comfortable sa paghawak niya pero i think masasanay din ako kasi the omnia is smaller and fits more perfectly in my hand at di ko mapigilang i-compare. the grip on the soleil is not ideal although hindi rin naman sya slippery. pero the chances na mag-slip sya sa kamay are higher than smaller phones. kaya advice ko, bili ng protective case/cover.. whatever.


    display:
    the display is great for its price. better than my omnia and my galaxy note 10.1
    crisp, clear but not consistent when you view it from different angles pero hindi naman ganun ka-affected ang experience. wala naman sicuro magbabasa ng text or manunood ng movie at more than 45 degrees na angle. but if you are the type na mahilig magshare sa viewing ng pics and movies, etc. baka di ka maging happy. im not sure if this is scratch resistant and i dont wanna try finding it out. may free naman na screen protector pero di ako magaling maglagay noon. pumalpak ako gaya nong sa galaxy note 10.1 ko kaya tinanggal ko na lng tapos tinapon. nway, the experience is better kung wala added layer sa screen (just my opinion)


    bundled accessories/others:
    im so disappointed with the length of the cable used for charging and conneting to usb ports. kalahati lng ang length (or baka nga shorter pa) sa playbook charger ko. also, shorter din sya sa cable ng samsung galaxy nte 10.1 ko. i guess may idea na kayo how short it is. for those na may units, im sure we all try to make do with it.

    the earphones that come with it, disapointing din for me. bakit: 1) may "bend" (sori di ako makaisip ng term) sa end na ipa-plug mo such that the cord is perpendicular sa phone mo. 2) after the split for the left and right earphones, sobrang magkalayo ang length ng para sa left ng para sa right. tapos wala naman akong makita na button somwhere sa bulk of plastic sa may split ng left/right earphones. earphones lng talaga sya. no volume adjustment no mute. no nothing.

    the manual that goes with it is so very unhlepful for someone who reads everything in a manual. (yes, i do read everything in manuals of gadgets i own). buti na lng, mayroon sa phone mismo yong "help" na most of the contents are available kahit offline. but some, kailangan mo mag online.

  118. ANONYMOUS REVIEW PART 2 OF 3
    Camera:
    come one people! dont expect me to say very nice things here. suffice it to say that for what the phone is worth, you cannot expect it to deliver more in terms of camera performance. just be glad na meron sya camera with enough features like 360 degrees shot and panorama. wala burst shots, wala drama shots, wala dual shots. bili kayo ibang phone if you want those features.

    as for me. i dont really use the cameras of phones that much. i just wanted it to have one just in case there are really times you need to capture a something (like in my case, posted class skeds/ skeds ng movie sa cinemas.. heheh)

    battery:
    ito na yong marami akong nababasang negative reviews about this phone that almost made go for a different phone. in my experience, the battery really do last way shorter than my old phone. it has 1400mah (tama ba ung unit of measure) and my omnia has 1440. omnia by the way is a windows phone. neglegible and difference sa measure pero sa acutal experience. my omnia needs recharging every 3-4 days with moderate use. when it was stil new, almost a week. dito ko naiisip na may lamang nga ang windows phone sa android phones. power hungry ang android. yong soleil ko lasted only 30hours and i have to recharge. actually, as im writing this, i am recharging my soleil. may installed na dyan na battery doctor. mukhang gusto kung bumili ng spare battery or power bank siguro.

    as far as i can recall, ito yong breakdown ng 30 hours:
    14 hours on standby
    3 hours games (4pics mostly )
    3 hours wifi (browsing only)
    30min firmware update via wifi (twice kasi nag undergo kasi nag error just before matapos yong first try)
    1 hour wifi with music (youtube)
    2.5 hours experimeting/exploring/adjusting settings/readjusting/(admiring? hehehe)
    30 minutes trying the camera and voice recorder
    30mins copying the contacts from old sim and editing groups (tumagal kasi di ko agad ma gets. not that user friendly.. i'll get to that later.)
    15 min radio without the earphones (yup, gumagana radio even without pluggin in the earphones)
    the rest of the 30 hours na di ko ma-account, di ko na-maalala.

    i did not experience heating up of the battery like some customer reviews say. the charging time is also short, like two and a half hours. careful din ako na huwag pabayaan ang phone na nakaplug for a long time and i normally do not charge my gadgets by leaving it plugged overnight. it's better na safe ka kesa magsisi later.


    software/ui:
    the user interface is not that great. i loved the interface on my galaxy note. although both are in jellybean, may mga noticeable differences like sa contacts management. about "contacts" the software needs a lot of improvement. way better yong experience ko even sa omnia. even the search option could use a lot of improvement sa soleil. but of course, maybe di lng ako sanay but then again, it have to give credits sa windows phone in terms of OS design. im not saying the apps sa windows are better. kanya-kanya na tayong preference dyan. by the way, i love tha apps on android.

    audio:
    the loud speaker is at the back of the phone kaya medyo affected yong listening mo sa music. of course, meron earpiece sa harap. alangan namang magdesign ang alcatel ng phone na babaliktarin mo pa kung may kausap ka eh nasa harap naman yong mic. the volume is good enough. better than that in the alcatel glory na para kang nakikinig ng sounds from under a tin can (sori, kung mukhang nasobrahan ang analogy, wala lang ako maisip sa ngayong). the sound quality is okay but as you raise the volume higher, medyo nagiging scratchy depending on the file you play. wag na rin kayo maghanap ng quality bass and treble kasi nga naman, mura lng yong phone. in fact, you can get it free with a 30-month contract.

  119. ANONYMOUS REVIEW PART 3 OF 3

    others:
    right now, the only thing that im concerned and cannot be sure of, is how long the phone will last. my omnia is now 4 years old and besides the peeled off glaze, minor screen scratches, diminished battery life and sometimes experienced lags, it still works. as for the soleil, i will have to find out. in short, i dont know how durable this soleil is.

    reception is good. i remember that my mother, way back in 2001-2002 used to had an alcatel. it was still analog. it was shaped like a soap (yong may konsensya). she also had a nokia. the nokia cannot connect to any network when she is at her workplace somewhere out of the city limits. but her alcatel did not lose signal. i believe that alcatel makes sure that same reception quality is present in their modern phone and as far as with the soleil, i guess i have to say they certainly did. since dual sim yong alcatel, i put in my globe sim and to my amazement, the globe signal on my alcatel is at its strongest. in my room at home and even in our office. is did a better job than my omnia and the nokia i used to have together with my omnia.

    conclusion:
    the alcatel soleil is a good phone for its price range. its a cheap phone that doesnt look or feel cheap and can deliver what it is supposed to give you at a price that means "everyone can have it." the experience for some maybe so and so but if you're not the type who can only be satisfied with high-end phones, that should do. if not, there are so many phones that are better but prepare to shell out more. right now, if i have to include the telcos' offerings, i cannot think of a phone in the market that might give more value for your money as long as you're in the market for android phones and not simply for a call/text phone with the occasional mp3/radio feature. it's worth a try for those who are considering it but im not saying you should. weigh your options within your budget range.
