MWC 2017: Alcatel A5 LED, A3, U5, PLUS 12 hands-on


TCL might have the BlackBerry KEYone for showboating purposes, but it will be its Alcatel-branded phones that will sell in heaps. The company brought three of those to MWC this year, plus a Windows 10 2-in-1, and we got a chance to play around with all...

Alcatel A5 LED


Alcatel unveiled no less than four devices at MWC 2017, and while there was no new flagship to supplant the Idol 4S, the company's headline A5 LED handset is… well, it's a distinctive phone that will appeal to some.

Alcatel A5 LED review


I don't think you're ready for this LED-y

LED light show looks better than you might expect ; Fair screen quality

Poor battery life ; Very bad performance ; Painfully sluggish charging ; Slow, slow camera

Alcatel has packed an LED light show into a phone - we just wish it had done it with a better phone

Alcatel A5 LED review


LED gimmick is not enough for this below-par budget phone

LED light show back ; Occasional good performance ; Low price

Stutter and lag ; Mediocre camera ; Low storage

Alcatel is still taking a gimmicky approach to the budget Android phone market, but a flashy LED array fails to mask a long list of distinctly disappointing compromises.

Alcatel A5 review


A party in your pants everyone can attend

Fun Light Show ; Low price ; HD display

Heavy Android UI is unnecessary ; Average performance ; Poor camera

The Alcatel A5 is an affordable smartphone that makes the pass grade, but doesn't do much to go beyond it.

for teenagers


This phone wouldn't be my first choice purchase. In my opinion, light show cover is only an unnecessary gadget. Phone is equipped with a mediocre camera. Poor resolution of a good size led screen makes everything looks slightly blurred when compared...
