Alcatel One Touch Glory 918N Specs and Price


Alcatel is back this year with its all new Alcatel One Touch Glory 918N. It is a budget friendly and entry level android smartphone that was previously known as Alcatel Blaze Glory 918N. The One Touch Glory 918N is a dual SIM handset that runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS, sports a 3 megapixel camera and is powered by a 650Mhz processor. The Glory 918N has an SRP of only Php 5,699.

According to it’s press release:

One of these two phones is the ALCATEL ONE TOUCH GLORY 918N, first known as the Blaze Glory 918N. With this phone, mobile users can have almost all the features that they want in one dual sim android phone. “Now owning a high-quality Android Smartphone does not have to be expensive anymore with ALCATEL ONE TOUCH GLORY 918N.” – Darren Sy, distributor of ALCATEL ONE TOUCH phones in the Philippines.

According to Chris Tiu, official brand ambassador for Alcatel One Touch:

“ALCATEL ONE TOUCH GLORY 918N is perfect for me. It suits all my need. I’m a very mobile person and I’m usually traveling. I love checking my mails while on the road. I’m also a twitter person and I always update my twitter status. It has a camera so you just take picture wherever you are and just post it. It has dual sim standby, runs on an android operating system so you can download a lot of apps and games—just everything I need. Now consumers can have all these features in an Android Smartphone for a very good value of Php5699.”

“My favorite part is the predictive text. I have big fingers that I miss the letters on the screen. The TouchPal Curve allows me to choose the right words.”

      • jeff

        You can’t expect too much from an entry level smartphone. If your budget allows it, try something in the mid level smartphones

  • Doc Lyn

    cannot connect to camera… what to do?

    • Ray Andrew

      Just restart your Alcatel Glory phone and wait for 10 to 15 minutes before using the phone. Usually works this way.

  • dave

    phone is quite good except for being very limited by its built-in memory (150mb internal, and 256 ram only). can’t install a bunch of apps due to this limitation.

    • paul

      i have this problem to. its too annoying that your phone is too slow and can’t dl a lot of apps. this is my question if i change my sd to 16 or 32 gb is their a possibility that this phone can run fast?

      • jeff

        Hi Paul.
        No, storage does not add to the “fastness” of your phone. Same goes with Samsung Galaxy Y. I guess this is a common problem with entry level smartphones.
        Better go for mid level phones if you can stretch your budget a little bit. Have you tried Alcatel One Touch 995 Sapphire HD?

    Same problem here. I love the phone but gets frustrated because of its limited internal memory.

    is it a quad band or a tri band?

    • Chris

      QUAD Band..

      • Denica

        I have a question…What is the difference of a QUAD BAND and a TRI BAND?

        • http://whatswithjeff.com jeff

          tri band is the older type of GSM network frequency. You can’t use tri band on some regions that does not support those frequencies. However Quad band supports all. That’s why people who are traveling abroad usually gets a quad band phone.
          Quad Band -> GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900
          Tri Band -> GSM 900/1800/1900
          Some countries/region only use the 850MHz frequency which a Tri Band phone does not support.

  • nongf

    i cant connect with the wifi. i was using it beside the router but still cannot connect. error message was: disconnected. secured with WPA/WPA2 PSK. pls help. im starting to hate this unit!

    • jeff

      That’s because you are trying to connect to a secured WiFi connection. -> WPA/WPA2 PSK
      You need a password to connect to that network.
      Is the WiFi you are trying to connect in your house or outside?
      If you can’t still connect even if you have entered the password for the network or if you can’t even connect to an open network, probably there is something wrong with your phone.

  • drenz

    i’m a 918n user, you can turn off shutter sound by rooting ur phone and using root explorer. this is the step on how to root- download unlockroot and download drivers of 918n in alcatel website. after rooting the phone install root explorer, then open root exp. open these folders system-media-ui, in ui folder locate camera_click.mp3, just rename or delete but just rename that. to edit it just press r/w.

    • jeff

      Can you use globe’s network? Even if it’s dual sim are you sure you can use other network’s sim on your phone?
      Dual sim phones can be a little bit tricky since you are using two different networks. The setting of SUN will definitely not work on Globe

          It’s a little bit tricky and needs timing. But if nothing really happens after a lot of tries, perhaps your phone doesn’t support that command.

    thanks

    • http://whatswithjeff.com jeff

      thanks for dropping by.
      Are the videos in FLV format or MP4? You should try converting it to mp4 first so that you can play it on your phone. I just use the default player on my android phone.
      If you don’t have a converer, try Format Factory, it’s a free all in one converter.

    • Bejay

      you cannot play .flv files because alcatel 918n is not compatible with flash players unless you convert it to mp4 or 3gp

    • http://whatswithjeff.com jeff

      Your internal memory is decreasing even if you did not install any apps? That won’t happen by itself. You might have installed or setup something that caused this. Are you recording or downloading something in the background? Please check, otherwise I suggest you do a factory reset (meaning ALL DATA will be WIPE OUT/DELETED). Perhaps this could fix your problem if you haven’t change any settings.

  • Aaron

    download cleaner or you can root your phone, or you can transfer you apps into your sd card by downloading link2sd.

        • http://whatswithjeff.com jeff

          you can upgrade the OS of your phone and not really your phone. Upgrading to the latest version of android OS has many benefits. Think of it as upgrading from Windows XP to Windows 7, similar to that. But I am not sure if Alcatel 918N is upgradable to ICS of Jelly Bean

    • http://whatswithjeff.com jeff

      Well, honestly if you are an Android user, it is recommended to have a Google account associated with your phone. This is for backup purposes and for problems like the one you are encountering now. Anyway, you can create a Google account on a desktop computer. A google account is the same as a gmail account, can also be used in google play store and youtube and other google services.
      The last resort will be to reset your phone to factory settings but it will delete ALL the data in your phone. Good if you regularly backup your phone, bad if not (and you have important data on it). I’ll post the guide soon ellen.

    creating google account will follow,just send those ways u have..tnx jeff,

    Hi…just want to ask if my alcatel 1touch glory x 918n phone is capable of running…or should i say compatible with a 32gig sd??? I’ve been thinking of extending my sd card memory to make room for more mp3s…but most of the people that I ask are telling me that I need to check first if my phone is capable of handling a bigger memory sd card…so is this model capable? help… Thanks!

    • http://whatswithjeff.com jeff

      Hi marts!
      I haven’t tried using this phone yet. But according to the official specs that Alcatel gave me, it supports microSD up to 32GB. Just an advice when buying a microSD, buy only original cards. Don’t buy fake or cheap ones. I use SanDisk Ultra 32 GB MicroSDHC Class 10 for my Note 2. Well, you don’t really need to buy a Class 10 microSD, but the speed helps when you transfer files from your computer to your card.

  • Chow

    HELP! Im stupid. I was drowsy when I changed my phone pattern lock, now I cant open it. I’ve exceeded 15 times. I tried signing to google account but it just wont sign in. The wifi on my phone is off. What to do? :O

    • http://whatswithjeff.com jeff

      Can you not turn on the Wifi or 3G? Try resetting your phone, factory reset. Go to recovery menu.

      • Chow

        I cant :( Its totally locked and I cant do anything about it

        • http://whatswithjeff.com jeff

          Have you tried doing a factory reset? Via the recovery?
          By the way, did you leave the USB Debugging mode enabled or not?

          • Chow

            Omg. Please dont think that Im super stupid or something, I just dont remember if I turned the debugging mode on. How to factory reset via the recovery? I cant open it still. the farthest I can get to my phone is “Sign in to gmail account to unlock phone.” And whenever I sign in with my CORRECT password and address, it just wont work :(

          • http://whatswithjeff.com jeff

            Hi Chow! Sorry but you got me wrong there. I didn’t think that you are super stupid or something, I’m just asking because there is a way to unlock your phone without doing factory reset, just as long as the USB debugging is enabled. And I need to know where you are coming from. But since you are now sure about that, I guess you will have to do a factory reset.

            But I warn you before hand, specially if this is your first time doing a factory reset or going to the recovery, I will not be held responsible for any damages that it may occur to your phone. I can’t see your phone so I don’t have a 100% idea of what is going on. You will be responsible for your actions. And doing a factory reset will DELETE ALL your files (including contacts) and apps.
            To do factory reset:
            1. Turn of your phone completely
            2. Turn it on again by pressing Power Button + Volume Up + Home Button all together. Hold those button until a logo appears.
            3. You should now boot in system recovery
            4. choose “wipe data/factory reset” (use volume up and down button to navigate and home button as select button)
            5. confirm your selection
            After that just restart, and your should be able to login to your phone again.

            Hope this will solve your problem.

    jeff, i have the same problem with chow, i followed your instructions, i turned off my phone then turned it on again pressing power, volume up and home buttons together, There is no system recovery to select. What appears are these: Factory Mode , Auto Test, Item Test, Test Report, Clear Flash, Version, Product Information, Reboot. I tried to press the Reboot but nothing happened. Please help.

      Have you tried factory mode?
      I’m not familiar with Alcatel’s interface. Perhaps they have different menu. Just find the same command that is equivalent to a factory reset.

  • jessyrhie

    • http://whatswithjeff.com jeff

      what network are you with? depending on your network, you have to configure the APN settings.

  • Chow

    Thanks it did work but I’m wondering why the apps were not gone. Anyway, thanks a lot! :) You really helped

    • http://whatswithjeff.com jeff

      that’s good, have you checked everything else? perhaps the apps there installed by default (bloatware) or you have to do a clear cache for them to be removed.

    Hi jeff, I have problem with my alcatel 918N, this phone is under warranty under suncellular plan350, I already surrender it to suncellular service becaulse it fails to power on and last Monday I claim my phone already and told me that the problem is the software. After 1 day my phone still have the same problem.. I already reset the phone again by borrowing other battery from my friend. and now I cannot power on the phone again.. Appreciate your help, thanks

    • http://whatswithjeff.com jeff

      I don’t think the problem is with the software if there is a power failure. If another working battery didn’t work, I think the unit itself has a defect. You can’t turn it on again right? Then you can’t test or reinstall a ROM. Better return it to Suncellular and ask for a new unit.

    Hi, I just wanted to ask. I always have a problem on delayed sms. :| Then, suddenly bunch of sms will come that was sent earlier. What shoul I do?

    • http://whatswithjeff.com jeff

      I think that’s not a network problem. Try inserting other sim to your phone and see if anything change

  • Gabi

    How can I screenshot without downloading an app ? I tried Home + Power button but it won’t work. Thanks in advance.

    • http://whatswithjeff.com jeff

      I’m not sure how you can do this with alcatel OTG 918. But the home + power button works for most android phones. It’s just tricky to apply since the timing has to be right.

  • Chow Again

    Hey. I cannot change my phone’s message notification tone :/ i’ve put mp3 typed sounds on my phone but whenever I try to change my message tone, the sounds I put in my phone can only be changed on call ringtone. What should I do?

    • http://whatswithjeff.com jeff

      Perhaps 918n does not natively support customized phone notification. Have you tried using a third party app or change the audio in the root directory?

  • Julieann

    why my alcatel glory x198n receiving continuous sms with the same messages? when i ask the person who send me a message, he said that he send the message once…please help me fix this…thank you..:(

    • http://whatswithjeff.com jeff

      I encountered this kind of error before, with Nokia phone. One possible reason is with your network, and not your phone.
      Did you change any settings on your phone? Because if you didn’t then its probably the network.

    Please help!!!!

      Do a factory reset of your phone. But this will delete all you data and apps that is in your phone.
      Do to a factory reset simply go to recovery menu by:
      1. turning off your phone
      2. Press power button + home button + volume up button (hold altogether it until a logo appears)
      3. Once your in the recovery mode, navigate or locate restore factory setting or restore default settings, or wipe user data (I’m not sure how will it look like with Alcatel)
      4. Just proceed with the reset and you can use your phone again.
      BUT be warned, this will delete everything in your phone, except the data on the external SD card. Proceed with caution and at your own risk.
      Hope this helps! Good luck!

    im having problem with my 918N, wen i turn on the wifi it scans, but wen i try to connect it cant though m password is correct. still appears as disconnect! pls help. thannks!

    • http://whatswithjeff.com Peter Paul

      perhaps you are not using the same security logins. There are different login security like WEP, WPA, WPA2, WPA-PSK. Which one is the router using?

      • maurice

        WPA/WPA2 PSK.. then another problem is that though its already connected to the wifi, it suddenly disconnect then appears as obtaining ip adress again! what shud i do with this? pls help :( im a new user of this fone.

  • maurice

    WPAPSK . then another problem is that although its already connected to the wifi, it suddenly disconnects then the “obtaining ip address” appears again. Can you help me with that pls? im a new user of this phone. thanks alot.

    • http://whatswithjeff.com Peter Paul

      Where you able to connect properly before, or this is the first time you connected the phone to that WiFi network?
      I’m not really sure what’s the problem. It might be your router or the network sharing the connectivity, or it might be with your phone. Anyway, try to connect to a different WiFi network and see how it goes. I have encountered this problem before, I can connect my Galaxy Y with my WiFi network here at home, but I can not connect it to the free WiFi network at Ayala Abreeza Mall. I also get the same optaining IP address and disconnects. But when I connect to starbuck’s WiFi network, it went through without any problems.

      • maurice

        I can connect to my wifi already. i just turn off my router but then i dont if this will last long cos still the “connecting” word appears in the wifi scanning then followed by “obtaining ip address” i dont think theres something wrong with my router cos the internet in my samsung tab work properly! Thanks though for the help! Much appreciated. ill msg you again if somethings wrong happen again :)

        • http://whatswithjeff.com Peter Paul

          Good luck! :)

  • gina

    dont know what happened to my alcatel one touch 918N phone. I cant make outgoing calla and even send message. I looked in the call settings the cALL Barring option is on. Im trying to turn it off but it is asking a call barring password. I dont know of the password. help pls….

    • http://whatswithjeff.com Peter Paul

      I’m not sure what is the password. usually its 12345 or 1234
      If you can’t really unlock it, try doing a factory reset. But thing will delete your data and apps as well.

  • marx

    all you have to do is to go to settings, then application management then you‘ll gonna see your phone‘s apps and click the app that you‘re going to transfer to the SD card then you‘ll gonna see a MOVE TO SD button and then click it up and you‘re all set,.just try it out,. ang galing diba po :)

    • Jeff

      Hi Marx. Thanks for dropping by and sharing your method. But not all apps can be move from the internal memory card to SD. And doing the steps you mentioned does not physically move the app from the internal SD to the external SD. I suggest you try Link2SD method or the better one FolderMount method. Good luck! :)
