Alcatel at MWC 2018


Living up to its long-standing reputation TCL brought a traditionally "abundant" roster of new phones to MWC 2015. Also, in keeping with tradition, most of these come in a large number of versions, with plenty of optional features, so bear with us here.

Alcatel 5 Smartphone Review


Newly developed design. The Alcatel 5 is supposed to attract customers as the new design flagship of the Chinese company TCL. In order to do that, it throws out the established design arrangements and reorders them. The result is a smartphone that...

battery life ; low-light performance of the camera ; high-contrast display

aged operating system ; mediocre system performance

The Alcatel 5 attracts users who are looking for a different design and are price conscious. For a price starting at 230 Euros (~$269), interested buyers receive a smartphone with an operating system that is not quite current anymore and has sufficient...

Alcatel 5


Misses the mark. Alcatel 5.

Big, accurate display ; Minimal bezel ; Decent camera for the price

Ugly design ; Clunky software ; Mediocre performance ; Old version of Android

The Alcatel 5 offers a dominating 18:9 display and reasonable camera performance for around £230. However, a slightly odd design, underwhelming performance and mediocre software make it hard to recommend in a strong field. The similarly priced Moto G5S...

Alcatel 5 review


One of the best phones you can get... for the price

Quality all-round design ; Screen feels premium ; Very appealing price point

Some bloatware spotted ; Camera needs the right conditions ; Battery life is poor

Despite a decent screen and solid design, the Alcatel 5 comes across as rather ordinary – until you find out the price. It packs in a lot for such a budget phone, but it's also up against some very strong competition.

Alcatel 5 review: Alcatel’s affordable flagship is no Moto G6 killer


A decent camera isn't enough for Alcatel's odd-looking budget smartphone to join the ranks of flagship-killing alternatives

Wallet-friendly price ; Decent camera

Ugly design ; Middling performance

Sadly, as decent as the camera is, this simply isn’t enough for the Alcatel 5 to stand out from the crowd. You might argue that because it’s cheap most of these problems can be ignored, but Alcatel’s affordable flagship struggles to provide anything...

What's better than a good top-end phone? A really good one that doesn't cost too much at all

It has an alluring price, but others have better performance, battery life and designs

Alcatel 5


‘‘Go big or go home'' seems to be Alcatel's motto this year as it revealed noless than 7 new budget friendly smartphones. The most premium of the bunch is called the Alcatel 5 and we had the opportunity to try it at MWC.

Bought this phone in the sale. the earphones supplied with the phone are of poor quality. the phone is fast and operates pretty smoothly. The sound quality including the bass is disappointing. Also they guarantee the phones for 1 year only as compare...

Poor sound


Overall the phone is quite good, only thing for me is it's not very loud and can't always hear it ring, so if outdoors I don't hear it so it's very poor sound in my opinion. Just ordered a Samsung because of it, so will now be a tablet for grandkids to...
