The phones specifications are nearly identical similar to Alcatel's Blaze OT 918N. The Blaze 918N is available at 2K less, at Php5,999. So what do you get for additional 2K?
The Blaze 985N has a larger 3.5 inch display, a higher mega pixel primary camera and a front facing camera. A 3.5 inch display is a much more functional size than the 3.2 inch display on the Blaze 918N. The larger display makes the virtual keyboard easier to use and will make using apps and web browsing a better experience. If spending another 2K is okay with you, the Blaze 985N will give you a more rewarding user experience as against its 3.2 inch sibling.
