The Alcatel Flash 2 (Lazada / Amazon) may be powered by a MediaTek chip, but it is a powerful 8-core MT6753 chip. It beat the ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser with its quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor in all aspects but video playback.

 

Battery Performance – PCMark

We then tested the Alcatel Flash 2’s battery performance using PCMark. It basically ran the PCMark work tests until its battery capacity dropped to 20%.

The Alcatel Flash 2 (Lazada / Amazon) lasted just over 8 hours on the PCMark stress test. This is a stress test that simulates the worst possible workload using work apps. In our real world experience, we had no problem using it for 12-14 hours with light loads, although its battery life dropped to about 6 hours while playing games.

 

Battery Recharging Performance

The Alcatel Flash 2 (Lazada / Amazon) has a large 3,000 mAh lithium-ion battery, but it does not have Fast Charging capability. Even so, it was able to recharge its battery really quickly.

Our tests showed that the Alcatel Flash 2 (Lazada / Amazon) will recharge from 17% to 100% in just 165 minutes (2 hours 45 minutes).
