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.

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

 

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.

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...

This is FAB

 

This phone is awesome, the back panel lights up which is a nice little feature. The phone is easy to use and has internet access etc. The screen size I think is pretty impressive and the main thing for us is the camera which is excellent, this will be...

Looks good

 

This phone is really good looking and stylish. The flashing light display is great and suitable for any age. The camera is easy to use and takes excellent pictures. I love this phone and it is good value for the price.
