There are Two kinds of back casing of Alcatel Flash 2
- the Volcanic grey – which I believe the back rough cover case is made from volcanic rock
- The Mica White – which I believe the back rough cover case is made from sand

(the quality made of the back case is just my speculation…)

The 5 inch phone is perfectly fit in our hand
here’s a model from the launch event holding the phone.

If this was a 5.5 inches, then it will be a glorious wonderful phone. But 5.5 inches is a much preferred to gamers, but a 5 inches is just made for a perfect fit to people who are always on the go with a smartphone.
