Alcatel is still taking a gimmicky approach to the budget Android phone market, but a flashy LED array fails to mask a long list of distinctly disappointing compromises.

The Alcatel A5 LED is certainly different, and while the LED-packed back is eye-catching, there are too many problems at the phone’s core to make this a serious consideration over the Lenovo Moto G5.

The A5 LED is a fun gimmick, tacked onto a bad phone - the opposite of what you might expect with a high-concept mobile like this.

Alcatel A5 LED hands-on review
Source: Stuff TV English
The A5 LED is undeniably attention-grabbing, and the price is right too. It’s set to arrive in Europe from May onwards for €199, which should mean £170 here in the UK. That’s not bad at all given the spec, and an absolute bargain if you want a unique phone that’s guaranteed to grab attention.

The big question is whether you can get more phone for your money, and while we need to live with the A5 for a bit before properly judging it, my suspicion is it will pale in comparison to affordable wonders like the new Moto G5, which is available at the same price point but boasts superior hardware and newer software.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Alcatel:

The former French manufacturer of telecommunication equipment merged to Alcatel-Lucent in 2006. Several business segments were sold to other companies, so the Alcatel brand is now used by various companies. The Chinese company TCL uses the brand names "Alcatel One Touch" and "Alcatel Idol" for smartphones and tablets.

The market share in the smartphone + tablet segment is very small, but there are quite some recent reviews in different languages. The ratings are average (as of 2016).


61%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
