Overview alcatel Idol 5

Android version and market relevance

Announcement! We need more new products from Alcatel. This time these guys announced alcatel Idol 5. This is a smartphone on Android 7.1 Nougat in 2017.

More detailed characteristics of this smartphone you can see below on the page, and in short we will describe the most important of them. So, firstly, there are no updates for this model the manufacturer does not release, so feel free to search for other smartphones in 2017 and choose from them. And, secondly, alcatel Idol 5 unfortunately, it does not support two SIM cards. Therefore, we advise you to look in the catalog all smartphones with 2 sim cards from different manufacturers, not only from Alcatel. Next about the screen, the camera and the processor with memory.

Screen, body and battery

Briefly describe the screen and the shell of the smartphone. alcatel Idol 5 received LTPS IPS LCD-screen measuring 5.2 inches. This is a good average among smartphones, with this size it is still convenient to hold in your hands and much more information is placed on the screen. It′s more pleasant to watch movies or TV shows, play games and chat in chats.

The thickness of the smartphone alcatel Idol 5 is 7.5 mm. This is an absolutely normal average shell thickness. And in such dimensions the engineers managed to put the battery on 2 800 mAh, and this is very small.

Main camera and selfie camera

The main camera on 13 MP located on the back of the smartphone. The frontcamera at alcatel Idol 5 received 5 MP that is not much. There are smartphones with a good selfie-camera.

Processor and Internal Memory

The more cores the smartphone processor has, the faster it works. Of course, do not forget that the applications should be optimized for the version of Android. But if we are talking about technical characteristics, then the processor here 4-core on the chipset Mediatek MT6753. RAM 3 GB.

Built-in memory for storing different data (photo, video, applications, music, etc.) here 16 GB. Do not forget that the update of the software version will be available for your smartphone, and for this you need to download it first, and if the space is not enough, it will not be able to update. Therefore, we advise you before buying to think about how much internal memory you need.

If we scared you just in the context of the built-in memory, then do not worry, because alcatel Idol 5 supports memory cards microSD with the maximum volume 256 GB. And this means that you can store all photos and videos with music on the memory card.

Price for alcatel Idol 5: buy or not to buy?

The smartphone alcatel Idol 5 got into our price segment “Below average smartphones from $200 to $300” and began to be sold in September 2017 at a price of $240. Evaluation of the characteristics, probably, you have already folded, and if not, here is our result. alcatel Idol 5 is a fast smartphone with a large screen and a cool main camera, and the front camera did not turn out super cool. And to all this we add that the battery, unfortunately, is weak here.

Is it worth buying now this model of the smartphone, we are talking about our status “Droid-or-Junk”. Of course, at the beginning of sales, almost every smartphone becomes a Droid, and we advise buying such models. But over time, the situation is changing, no one updates the Android version in the smartphone, and in six months or a year this smartphone can already become a Junk. In this case, we advise you to go to the DROID smartphones page in our catalog, where we always show the most current models on sale for today. There are variants from different price segments, so you will have plenty to choose from.
