Alcatel newest device, the Alcatel 5 boasts of no bottom bezel, sporting a unique display. So the bezel-less display with no top notch trend have been saturated in the mobile industry. With OEMs going all the way by moving the selfie camera to the bottom bezel, but Alcatel did the opposite.
The midrange device will be affordable when launched, coming with 3GB of RAM, 32GB internal storage and 3000mAh battery. It comes with dual selfie camera as well, you can check below for availability and speculated price. The new device is beautiful and stunning no doubt, but willl it be worth it? Lets find out.
In this article we talk about:
A combination of metal and plastic, the Alcatel 5 is absolutely a beauty to behold. Comes with rough-like back for a non slippery hold, its also quite comfortable to hold. It measures 8.45 mm to the sides and weighs just 144g, which is light for a phone with 3000mAh battery.
Love the way the features at the back are placed, the rear camera starts a vertical train at the top middle. The dual-LED flash follows underneath, then the fingerprint scanner looking comfortable and quite accessible. The Alcatel logo reflects light in the most subtle way, you can only get the phone in two colors Gold and Black.
It sports no bottom bezel, which is quite a new trend if you ask me. I think the top bezel is far more important than the bottom bezel, the display on the Alcatel 5 is out of this world. The 5.7-inch HD+ IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen stretched all the way to the bottom.
The screen boasts of 1440 x 720 pixels in resolution, with 282 pixel per inch density. You have to admit how pretty the screen is, as it stretched up to 77.60% screen to body ratio. It supports multi-touch, has an 18:9 aspect ratio and protected by a 2.5D curved glass.

The dual 13MP + 5MP selfie camera on this device is everthing, you can now take selfies from all angles with this baby. Boasting of 120 degree wide angle lens with LED flash, group selfies in dark places will turn out great. At the back, there’s a single 12MP rear shooter with f/2.0 aperture which takes 4K resolution images in a second. It comes with dual-LED flash as well plus other features helping the camera capture photographs with 4032 x 3024 pixels in dimension.
