This 5.2-inch handset is powered by a Snapdragon 625 processor, next to 3 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage, and can be acquired for $280 USD (or just $200 USD with lockscreen offers & ads), but those who become paid Prime members receive $80 USD back as a gift card.

Alcatel usually launches low-end handsets, but some of its Idol smartphones can be easily considered mid-rangers. The new Idol 5S is such a device, features a metal frame and 2.5D glass, and it has just become available for purchase as an Amazon Prime Exclusive handset.

Alcatel Idol 5S has a 5.2-inch full HD display and is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, next to 3 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage, as well as microSD support up to 512 GB. The cameras included offer 8 MP (front) and 12 MP (back). A fingerprint reader is also present, and the operating system on board is Android 7.1 Nougat. The battery provides 2,620 mAh. 

This handset will be released on July 10 and can be acquired for $279.99 USD without offers & ads, or just $199.99 USD with lockscreen offers & ads. Those who become paid Prime members also get a $80 USD Amazon.com Gift Card. The Alcatel Idol 5S is unlocked and comes with full support for AT&T and T-Mobile networks (including VoLTE). Sprint and Verizon support will be added this summer as well.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
