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 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 review


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 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

The Alcatel 5 is the smartphone equivalent of ready salted crisps. Dependable, yes, but your money is much better spent on fancier flavours. Instead, go for the Moto G6, which is the Kettle's Sea Salt with Black Peppercorns of budget handsets:...

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.

Kort testrapport Alcatel 5 Smartphone


Nieuw ontwikkeld ontwerp. De Alcatel 5 zou klanten moeten trekken als het nieuwe vlaggenschip van de Chinese fabrikant TCL. Om dat te doen, gooit het de gevestigde ontwerpmethodes eruit en wordt het ontwerp opnieuw doordacht. Het resultaat is een...
