Alcatel 5V packs a 6.2-inch notched screen with an 19:9 aspect ratio in the size of a standard 5.5-inch smartphone, thanks to the bezel-less design. On the inside, you will find Android 8.1 Oreo, an Octa-core 2.0GHz Mediatek Helio P22 processor, 3GB RAM, and a 4,000mAh battery.
Keeping in line with 2018 trends in the mobile industry, the 6.2-inch display has a notch. And since we already know that notches are a means of dealing with front-facing cameras on bezel-less smartphones, above the large display is an 8-megapixel selfie camera.
A display that big deserves some protection, and so there is 2.5D Dragontrail glass to take care of that. Dragontrail is a competitor to Gorilla Glass.
The selfie camera is also equipped to make sure that you can unlock your smartphone with your face.
Flip this Android smartphone around and what greets you on the back is an AI-powered dual camera specified at 12 megapixels + 2 megapixels, and a rear fingerprint scanner. With 32 GB internal storage, you would begin to think the 5V would cost more than its $200 price tag.
However you look at it, this is a solid feature package that provides a big screen, powerful processor, copious amounts of RAM, and a big battery. It would have been nice to see fast battery charging in the mix, but as you know, something has to give.
This is a budget smartphone after all. And yet, the manufacturer has managed to pack in extensive features at a fairly modest price.
The consequence, though, And so, is that charging up the phone might become a pain in the neck. You will find that the huge battery will take quite a while to top up whenever it runs low. Still, for the price, this is a steal.
