Alcatel does not stand back to try out gimmick approaches to gain market sale. This approach is clearly visible in the new Alcatel A5 LED in which the back cover illuminates with multi-colored LED lights on any notification or when you play music. This may sound a bit cheap- a phone with dancing LEDs but because of the diffused appearance caused by the back cover it appears quite attractive and unique. However, Alcatel has not quite much succeeded in packing the phone with performance as well.

Alcatel A5 LED is an entry level smartphone with some good and some bad features. The Alcatel A5 LED price however, explains the compromise in functions clearly. The phone is quite affordable in Pakistan considering all the features one will get after buying Alcatel A5 LED.

Alcatel A5 LED in Pakistan

Amongst all Alcatel mobiles, this mobile in particular is quite popular in Pakistan with a huge market share. The reason of popularity amongst the Pakistani people can be its affordable value, the amazing features and illuminated attractive back. People in Pakistan always look for mobiles that are affordable and also have a lot to offer to the users.

For in store purchase you can visit Serena Mobile Mall or Gulshan e Iqbal Mobile Mall in Karachi; if you reside in Lahore you can visit Hafeez center and for Islamabad residents Centaurus mall is the best place to get Alcatel Mobiles.

Alcatel A5 LED Features

The Alcatel A5 LED brings together good design with an above average performance that is just right for the money paid.

Simple yet strong body

Alcatel like all other mid-ranged mobile have opted plastic for its body. Of course in this nominal Alcatel A5 LED price you cannot expect a premium looking phone. But the body and looks are fair enough for the price. Moreover, the plastic cover is tough and is not prone to breakage or crack upon dropping.

The most attractive thing about the built is the LED cover. The LEDs are illuminated upon any notification or playing music. There is an app for customizing the LED show in which different patterns can be selected and even you can set the LED lights to change with the change in your voice.

Performance- a bit compromised.

Alcatel A5 LED is built on MediaTek chipset with an octa-core processor and Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) operating system. The performance of the mobile can be considered as average with some lags seen if a heavy app is downloaded or opened.

Capturing the moment

The mobile is packed with an 8 MP rear camera and 5 MP front camera. The camera quality is just “ok” for a low budget phone. And since the screen resolution is not much, the pictures appear a bit fuzzy but viewing them on a better resolution screen shows that the images are not that bad and mediocre level.
