how's it going everyone welcome back to another video today we're going to be talking about the alcatel my flip 2 this is a kaios device from tracfone that has a lot of good features so let's get started if you're new to the channel my name is jose and here we review dumb phones we talk about digital minimalism and everything in between so that's something that interests you make sure to subscribe again we're taking a look at the alcatel my flip 2. i actually enjoyed using this device on tracfone's network but again you cannot use this device outside of tracfone's network because of their unlock policy as with most of the devices that are sold at target or walmart or anything else you have to wait about 12 months after activation in order to unlock it now the advantage is that tracfone uses all of the networks so you can use it with t-mobile atm t verizon networks you just have to pay tracfone in order to use this device now the alcatel my flip 2 is just a different version of the alcatel my flip or go flip 3 or d but my flip which i have all of them right now here and i'm making reviews individually for each of them but again they have very similar cores and that's actually a good thing the devices don't bring a ton of bloatware like the nokia devices that bring a lot of bloatware so you are able to uninstall most games or apps that are added and you're not forced to keep them on the device the one that has the least amount of bloatware is the alcatel go flip 3 and we'll get to that review in a couple days or weeks just depending on my schedule but the my flip 2 is a very reliable device and it actually has something that the other alcatel devices do not have and that is it has a quick call button this can be configured in order to be an sos button called 9-1-1 or call a family member or somebody in case of an emergency i actually think that this is something necessary for a lot of flip phones and i personally enjoy that this device has it it has a camera on the back it has your regular t9 keypad and it sticks to predictive text so on devices like the nokia 6300 the issue is that even though you enable predictive text whenever you go to compose a text message you have to go back to t9 you have to select that that is the kind of keyboard that you want to use on the alcatel devices i am happy and pleased to announce that you have predictive text as the first option so you don't have to keep switching back and forth you can just go into predictive text once and time and time again which is a very big advantage when you're trying to save time and compose a message it has all of the other features of kaios google assistant it has whatsapp facebook if you want to use those things or it has the other tool apps like a podcast app or calendar calculator things of that nature so when it comes to the software again make sure to check the walkthrough video if you want to see how kiosk operates now the good thing about the myflip 2 is that it's operating on version 2.5.1 which is the same version that is operating under the nokia 6300 4g which allows for calls on whatsapp and also allows you to have a deep memory cleaner which is a great addition when you're trying to use the device for a long term and you feel like it's getting bogged down then you go to the deep memory cleaner and then you're good to go again the only disadvantage of the buy flip 2 is that it only works on tracfone's network which is a bummer i wish it was available on more carriers however that's just how it works as of right now the device works reliably well with phone calls and text messages and again if you want to compose group text messages you have to add a subject or an image or something in between in order to convert it to mms this is a limitation of kiosk we have seen it on other devices so don't expect just to type the numbers and then type a quick text message right there you have to go to the options and then add a subject in order for you to send it that way it is a little bit annoying but it has the ability to send group text messages as long as you do that this applies to all of other kios devices so if you have a kaios device and you say i wish i had the ability to send group text messages you just need to add that subject and then you're able to send it as a group text message it's an extra step that you always have to remember and it is a little bit of a bummer but again it does work besides that battery life is very consistent with kaios it lasts for two to three days with light use and of course if you want to kill it in one day you can do that but i had difficulty draining it to its fullest in one day so i think this device has better battery life than the nokia devices maybe that is just because i started testing it and because tracfone's network is very reliable in my area so i was not having any signal issues which lead to battery drainage when it comes to other features on the alcatel my flip 2 you have your sd card 3.5 millimeter headphone jack and you have your micro usb charger pretty standard when it comes to kaios devices i really like the alcatel myflip too but it stands in tough competition if you're going to use it on tracfone especially if you're going to compare it with the lg classic i have a review on the lg classic and i said that that device is actually the device that i wish it was available on all major carriers because it's very reliable it has group text messages it has calls reliable browser everything is snappy so again if you're looking for a flip phone device that is better than the alcatel my flip 2 then i would say the lg classic is a better option and they stand about the same price 29 this one may go on sale for 19 from time to time or depending on your local store but the price is very accessible and you're going to be able to get this device and run it if that's what you want again it has great accessibility you can install apps like whatsapp and it has some advantages over the lg classic just because the lg classic you cannot install a lot of apps but this device is very reliable very good and if you are okay with adding a subject every time that you send a text message for groups then i think this may be the device for you thanks for watching this video if you have any questions or anything else about other devices or any extra things make sure to put it in the comments below i'll be interacting with you guys thanks for watching this video
Hey Mark its 7:15. Time to check how many
likes your post got. Not bad. Hmm Rachel got a haircut. Oh look at that funny dance
Trevor's parrot did! And his mom's in Cancun, tropical. Oh look at that, no time
for your morning jog. Again. Love that parrot. And the kitten, hilarious!
Let's see what your friends have to say about it. Whoa! Look up! Watch out! Yeah well done. Looks like Dave went for his run. Yet another political scandal?
Do you remember this child star? Look at them now! Oh nice you have a date. This could
be a match. Really? Is it that urgent? There you go. Well I guess it wasn't a match. Maybe it's time for a change…
I'll show you something. Hi, we are the founders of Mudita. We want to introduce you to Mudita Pure. Meet Mudita Pure.
Designed to Enjoy Life. Offline. E Ink display makes reading more natural,
and without blue light emission.
We added a frontlight in a pleasant, warmer color. Designed to be simple in its form and functionality. Comfortable to hold, it brings to mind
the shape of a stone. We wanted to be sure you're using
the safest phone in the market. With a patented antenna Mudita Pure
has an ultralow SAR. MuditaOS is light, reliable and minimalistic. It gets digitally signed updates to make sure
that your privacy is taken care of. No internet. And it feels great.
But if you need to go online Mudita Pure can serve as
a data modem for your laptop.
Just connect it via cable. Most feature phones only work in specific regions.
We were surprised too. Pure has a global GSM module for
travelling anywhere in the world. Harman speaker gives high-quality
and natural sound. What else? And last but not least: Meditation timer. Worth giving a try. A simple yet very useful feature that helps you focus on the present moment. We started working on Mudita Pure 3 years ago. During our research
programme we built our first prototype with a unique antenna with low SAR. Pretty huh? Our designer didn't agree. The last three years helped us take the
design, components and quality to the next level.
Mudita Pure is designed and
developed in Europe. We've created a light and secure operating system. And handpicked every single component. I'll give you an example. Most phone producers
use pre-made PCB. But they weren't enough for our goals, such as less energy consumption, compatibility with an E Ink display and ultra-low SAR. So we decided to build our own PCB instead. You see, we tested all of the phones,
but they didn't meet our expectations. So we have created the best classic phone built with wellbeing and health in mind. The phone that inspires us to spend more quality
time and do the things that make us feel alive. Our mission is to promote a conscious
use of technology. Be a part of it and help us bring Mudita Pure to reality..
