HTC Desire A17
Chinese mobile maker Alcatel unveiled three new mobiles at the recent Mobile World Congress 2017. The released Alcatel A5 LED, Alcatel A3, and Alcatel U5 are low and mid range mobiles which cater to the customers of different classes. The Alcatel A5 LED release date in India is expected to be around April 20, 2017.
2800mAh battery, Android Marshmallow
No fingerprint sensor, no Quick Charging, non-removable battery, does not support VoLTE
The Alcatel A5 LED is powered by MediaTek MT6753 octa-core processor with 1.5 GHz and Cortex A53 architecture. The phone runs on Android v6.0 (Marshmallow). Although it is not the much-acclaimed Qualcomm Snapdragon, the 2GB RAM and a Mali-T720 MP3 Graphics Processing Unit along with the robust MediaTek makes Alcatel A5 LED a decent handset for gaming.
The Alcatel A5 LED comes with an 8MP primary camera and a 5MP front camera. The rear camera has an image resolution of 3264x2448 pixels, dual-color LED flash, 2.0F aperture, whereas the front cam comes with a LED flash. The camera features also include Continuous Shooting, High Dynamic Range mode (HDR), Digital Zoom, Auto Flash, Face detection, and Touch to focus.
The Alcatel A5 LED comes with a non-removable Li-Polymer battery of 2800 mAh capacity. The battery does not support Quick Charging.
Design and Display:
The Alcatel A5 LED sports a 5.2-inch IPS LCD display with the resolution of 720x1280p and pixel density of 282 ppi. The capacitive multi-touch screen has the screen to body ratio of 70.65%. Now comes the best part about the phone. The Alcatel A5 LED comes with a LED back panel which splashes different colors while using the phone. The colors change with respect to the music played in the device. Also, it comes with additional modular back panels, one with a bigger speaker, other with a battery back panel, and also a plain featureless back panel which can be changeable according to the needs. This is pretty cool feature Alcatel is offering but the LED multi-color show-off is hardly a mandatory thing and can help drain your battery.
The Alcatel A5 LED comes with a 2GB RAM and 16GB internal memory which can be expandable up to only 32GB. In the days of 32GB or bigger internal memories, the Alcatel is quite backward to offer a mere 16GB ROM at this price range. Also, it does not support USB OTG (On The Go).
The Alcatel A5 features also include an accelerometer, a proximity sensor, and a compass. The phone comes only in black colour. Another interesting feature about the A5 color-capturing tool which lets you pick any color through the camera and set it as a theme skin. And, the Alcatel A5 LED price in India will be around Rs 9000.
All in all, the Alcatel A5 LED is a pretty standard device for its features and built. But at this price range, no one except Alcatel offers a set of modular back panels, which is pretty impressive. Motorola is another such company which has Moto Mods for its Moto Z Play. Have a look at other mobiles with better specifications at the same price range: Redmi 3s Prime, Motorola G4 Play, and Meizu M2 Note.
