Alcatel U5
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.

Design

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

Camera

  • Perfectly functional, albeit entirely humdrum.

Performance

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

Battery

  • 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.
