Alcatel has produced another smartphone to enter into its list of budget smartphones. This smartphone has interesting features such as the 13 megapixel camera situated at its rear and the large display screen size of 5.5 inches. The smartphone offers some features that makes it worth more than a budget smartphone. Let’s take a detailed look at some of these features. Stay with me.
The smartphone has a 5.5-inch screen size with Full HD display. This is the average requirement for largeness for a smartphone. If a smartphone has less than this size, considering it a large screen smartphone will need some serious attention to nullify the statement. The screen display also comes with a 2.5D Curved Glass. Its screen resolution is 1080 x 1920 pixels. Well, that’s a very impressive one. That’s to say that the images and icons will have remarkable clarity. The smartphone uses the Dragontrail Glass for protection against scratches and possible breakage of the device.
Its rear camera has a 13-megapixel shooter. This shooter handles the capturing of images. There’s the presence of LED flash to brightening images in less light conditions. The front camera has a 5-megapixel sensor that handles the taking of selfies. There’s no presence of LED flash in the front camera setup.
PROCESSOR AND OS
For processing operations on the smartphone, the smartphone uses the Octa-core MediaTek MT6753 CPU. This octa core processor runs at a clock speed of 1.5GHz. The smartphone uses the Android 7.0 Nougat as its operating system.
The read access memory (RAM) of a smartphone is very vital as it determines if the smartphone will lag easily or work smoothly. To ensure Idol 5 runs smoothly, a 3GB RAM was administered in its build up. That’s a well taken care of RAM. The storage unit of the smartphone has a 16GB capacity. The 16GB storage handles the storing of files such as documents, music, videos and photos. Amazingly, the smartphone has a micro SD support that allows the extension of the storage to 128GB.
The battery Idol 5 uses is a non-removable 2,800mAh Li-Ion battery. Even at its budget smartphone status, this is a cool battery capacity.
