I got my phone Alcatel Pop D5 5038A free from Plan 500 of Smart. I've been using it for 2 weeks now and I'm satisfied with its performance. It uses a micro sim card (1 card slot only), an 8 mp camera and 1.3 for front, its android is kitkat version and it's quadcore already so internet surfing is fast especially on wifi settings. It was highly recommended by the sales associate to me, i reviewed the specs and find it to be okay.
smart gave me this 5038a under plan398. no boom band. and the screen is bad. i think its lcd. when you are playing movies and look at sides. all you can see is smoky white. and its single sim. i think alcatel released this with boom bands togethe. but this smart sells this separately.
dan 14, 26 Sep 2014Maybe its 5 or 8 megapixel and vga or 1.3 back. Its already confusing because pop d5 have 4 mo... moreur exactly right, i just got confused because on the plan it states 8mp while on this specs here it shows 5mp. lol
poi, 26 Sep 2014so is it really 5mp or 8mp?Maybe its 5 or 8 megapixel and vga or 1.3 back. Its already confusing because pop d5 have 4 models. What is important is I am happy with it. Hope you appreciate my reply.
paul, 25 Sep 2014as the sun agent says(suncell),its a 5mp back cam and a vga front(but outside the box its 8mp)... moreMy alcatel pop d5 5038e is doing fine. I can surf, play and watch with ease. Fast internet and good battery. Try to read the characterestics of kitkat so you woukd appreciate it. Othet than the kitkat os its quadcore and h+ signal for both sim 1 and sim 2. You wiil not be able to find other brands at the price of pop d5 and same specs. Before this, I am using a more expesive phone before but pop d5 is better and very useful and fast in browsing the internet. Learn how to use the phone properly. Dont be sorry. Maybe download games that storage is in sd card and buy 16 or 32 gb. The 512 ram is okay because its kitkat(read and know the charateresics of the os kitkat). For your info.
I dont know what is happening with your phone but mine is ver good. I can browse, play,watch with ease and very fast. There are pre-installed application that can be transferred to sd memory card. You can also remove some application that you dont need. My advice read and know what kitkat os charaterestics. If you use your phone most of the time for playing games, download games that can be installed and buy a bigger memory card.You are not fooled. Its only plan 500 with the specs. I am using a more expensive phone before but this pop d5 5038e is far better because its kitkat, quadcore and good battery. Lastly, you cannot get any brand with the same specs at this price.
Dan14, 26 Aug 2014I am using alcatel pop d5 5038e for about 3 weeks and I am satisfied with it. I get the phone ... moreas the sun agent says(suncell),its a 5mp back cam and a vga front(but outside the box its 8mp).with 1.88 internal memory but with pre installed apps.its now only about 1.66 in total.512 mb ram.mine was 5083e.updates eat my internal memory.nba2k14 can't be moved to sd card.and u have to download lot's of apps to run it better.and cant be rooted as of now.1 game crashes evertime i open it.on my opinion i was fooled.i have no choice i. have a contract.

The model for Sun is 5038e with boomband and its for new subscription. Alcatel is use to releasing phone with same name with different model and specs thats why its confusing. I dont know their purpose and objective?
Just got mine from Smart Plan 500... no Boomband also, the model is 5038A, the 8MP is just software interpolation...
