Alcatel Idol 5 review

 

The Alcatel Idol 5 is a solid midrange phone, but it's beat out by the competition.

Decent performance ; Good camera for the price ; Virtual reality at a low price ; Good stereo speakers

Lackluster battery ; Some design quirks ; No fingerprint sensor

The Alcatel Idol 5 is an excellent option for those looking for a good phone under $200. Unlike some of its competition, the device offers a decent camera – a feature that most budget handsets seem to ignore in favor of things like battery life. It’s...

Alcatel Idol 5s, Idol 5, A7 XL, A7 hands-on review

 

Alcatel announced four smartphones and a smartwatch for kids at the IFA 2017 congress. Phone-wise we got the Idol 5S, followed by the slightly dialed down Idol 5, the battery-conscious A7 and dual camera-equipped A7 XL...

Alcatel Idol 5

 

The Alcatel Idol 5 for Cricket has an attractive design, solid specs, and pairs with an optional companion headset to deliver an affordable VR experience.

Affordable. Attractive metal unibody design. Solid specs. Supports pass-through camera function on companion VR headset.

Average battery life. No fingerprint sensor.

At $199.99, the Alcatel Idol 5 has a lot going for it, with its slim design, solid hardware, and VR support. If you're looking for a sleek, feature-packed phone in a reasonably sized package, it's a great option. But in terms of sheer value, the...

Premium design ; It's VR-capable with the optional UNI360 VR Goggles ; Incredible sound performance from the speakers ; Now Key offers quick access to apps/functions

Alcatel Idol 5 Review: All Show, Little Go

 

There are certainly worse budget phones than the Idol 5. Given the wealth of alternatives that deliver better value, though, there's no reason to settle.

Great display ; Premium design ; Charges fast ; NFC

No fingerprint sensor ; Underwhelming specs ; Carrier locked ; Poor battery life ; Buggy VR experience

Alcatel has brought its attractive, but-flawed Idol 5S to Cricket as an exclusive to the prepaid carrier, but the new phone makes too many compromises to offer any appeal beyond its low price.

Review: Alcatel Idol 5 for Cricket Wireless

 

Alcatel's mid-range Idol 5 is a bargain for prepaid Cricket's subscribers. It combines an attractive metal-and-glass design with a near-stock version of Android Nougat and special features such as a customizable action key and stereo speakers. Here is...

Alcatel did a fine job with the Idol 5. The handset is attractive, made from quality materials, and delivers the right mix of value for the dollar.
