Alcatel is a company that under the term "flagship" usually hides equipment not only much cheaper than the competition, but also offering less opportunities. One of such devices is Alcatel 5 – really interesting equipment that goes to Poland at a very decent price.
Smartphones from Alcatel are known primarily to people looking for cheaper devices – they are usually models costing several hundred zlotys, available in supermarkets or operator offers that offer decent opportunities for people looking for simple devices. One of them is Alcatel 5 , which went to Polish stores at a really decent price.
"Flagship" in the price of a medium shelf low
The official price of Alcatel 5 is 749 PLN ( you get it even in Komputronik ) and compared to the valuation of this device in Europe is really a decent proposition – in other countries of the Old Continent this equipment costs 229 euros, or nearly 980 zlotys . This is a nice change in connection with other smartphones, which are usually priced higher than other countries, together with the so-called "a tax on novelties". And the most important is the fact that we are dealing with a model, the purchase of which is really worth considering.This is a really nice smartphone that offers a display in the 18: 9 format , which means we have a slender and well-lying device in the hand. Admittedly, the resolution offered by this model is not too high, 720 x 1440 pixels, but the whole looks really good. Although it would seem that FullHD is already a standard. The equipment is powered by an octa-core MediaTek MT6750 processor, which is obviously not the first freshness and ideally suits the average, and even the lower shelf, and this is how the Alcatel 5 is priced. I will add why I consider Alcatel 5 as the "original frameless" . As you probably noticed in the graphics, the manufacturer quite peculiarly approached the theme of frames around the screen and instead of the characteristic beard under the display left a head over it. This is a simple procedure, but how distinctive Alcatel is!
Decently on Android Oreo
The work of the processor supports 3 GB RAM, while the data will receive 32 GB of space in the internal memory. It is true that we can use a microSD card to increase this space, but this smartphone supports only media with a maximum capacity of 32 GB. A little bit and it is a pity that the manufacturer imposed so much restrictions on this element. The smartphone, of course, uses the capabilities of the Oreo Android 8.0 operating system and it must be admitted that this set should be sufficient for efficient operation of this OS.
Two cameras … on the front
A very interesting procedure is observed in the case of cameras that have been placed on the Alcatel 5 board. We find a standard optics with a resolution of 12 megapixels with double LED lighting and autofocus, in turn on the front we find two cameras – one of them has a resolution of 13 megapixels, the other – 5 megapixels. This of course will not only ensure the right quality of the selfie, but also a much wider angle of the photos than in the case of the vast majority of equipment in this price range. Interesting solution and certainly not found in this class of equipment.The specification is topped by a battery – not very big , because it has a capacity of 3000 mAh – which sums up what Alcatel 5 offers. It's just medium equipment, which at the price seems to be a really interesting proposition for everyone looking for decent equipment. It is a very solid construction, with a decent drive set in the form of an octa-core processor and 3 GB of RAM and a very interesting proposition for selfie fans, consisting of two front cameras. On the other hand – how strange it sounds at the moment when the producer talks about this model as a flagship. It would be beautiful times if the prices of flagship equipment were just that low. In this case, however, the manufacturer exaggerated a little, because we are not dealing with anything more than a typical average. source: own
