With its 5-inch screen, front and rear cameras and Android 6.0 operating system, the Alcatel U5 provides basic smartphone features at an eminently affordable price.

The Alcatel U5 smartphone checks all the boxes of a modern smartphone without weighing itself down with dozens of flashy features or a wince-worthy price tag. If all you need is a device capable of handling calls and texts, checking your emails, browsing the Internet and other straightforward tasks, the Alcatel U5 warrants your consideration.


  • An unassuming design built for functionality rather than fashion.
  • 480p resolution is a little on the low side for a 5-inch screen.


  • Perfectly functional, albeit entirely humdrum.


  • Primarily suited for basic tasks and not much else.
  • 1GB of RAM limits multi-tasking capabilities.


  • Up to 11 hours of talk time and 441 hours on standby, according to Telstra.
  • Should easily make it through a full day on a single charge.
