The highlight of this phone, as the ‘flash,’ in its name denotes is its hight resolution cameras. The rear camera comes with a 13 MP sensor and the front camera comes with a 5 MP. Alcatel places the Onetouch flash as a selfie phone, though it carries some powerful innards as well. The primary camera is capable of recording 1080p full HD videos @30 fps. It is and auto focus camera that comes with an LED flash. Image Stabilization, HDR, Panorama Mode, QR Code Scanner, Face Tracking, Selfies and Best Shots are some of the other key camera features.

Alcatel OneTouch Flash 6042D has got all the right ingredients that can make it is a game changer in the phones under Rs. 10,000 segment. They have got the specifications and the price right for the India smartphone buyers.
There will not be much of a competition for the device, as there is no devices in currently under Rs.10,000 that features a 5.5 inch display and an octa core processor. While Celkon Millenia Epic Q550 that was launched today can be a match for this device in terms of display size and resolution, it lacks the power that this phone offers. It is also slightly more pricey.
