Let’s look at the Alcatel 5, the most stunning and pricy option. And when we say price, we just mean in comparison with the rest of the lineup, because the Alcatel 5 goes for just $283 / €230.
Despite of this pricepoint, Alcatel has managed to cram a lot of higher-end features. Most notable is Alcatel’s commitment to bring 18:9 displays across the line.
The Alcatel 5 brings a bezel-less 5.7 inch Alcatel FullView 18:9 display with 1440 x 720 resolution.
Those aching for the convenience of biometric authentication will definitely enjoy Face Key, the facial recognition security system. Moreover, there’s the fingerprint sensor on the back that not just unlocks the phone. You can use it as a shutter key and, using different fingers, as a fast launch for the most commonly used apps.
The dual-camera system pairs a 13 MP primary camera with a 5 MP selfie camera with 120-degree wide angle. The back sports a 12 MP camera.
With a premium brushed metallic unibody design and octa-core MediaTek processor, the Alcatel 5 definitely packs a punch for its price range.
