Unboxing The Alcatel Flash 2

The Alcatel Flash 2 (Lazada / Amazon) comes in a large 2-piece cardboard box. This is a generic box, so be sure to check the side label for the correct colour. This is the Volcanic Grey model. A Mica White version is also available. Unlike some smartphone manufacturers, Alcatel has no qualms pointing out that they use MediaTek chips in their smartphones.

Once you remove the white outer sleeve, you will need to cut a single security seal on the green box to gain access inside. The box is big because Alcatel provides a complete set of accessories, including a flip case!
