downside :very thick , its even thicker than iphone 4 but its an alcatel so its normal
werid big button icons
screen to body ratio is very low
battery is small for a device of this size
it's look great this phone im using in 3days from now. i'll get this phone a plan in sun cellular and i don't know what the price of alcatel u5 now.
My first smartphone ever, upgrade from 2G was done promptly in the shop (*). Easy to learn, easy to use, easy to connect up to my PC, easy to install an app - and it did the task I needed it for, as well as the expected features. I'm happy, although I have no real comparison.
(*) When I first started as a tech geek, a PC upgrade meant an order from abroad, weeks, then soldering it onto the PC board.
I really like Alcatel brand and when I tried this Alcatel U5 I was little bit puzzled, and possibly expect too much on this unit just for a week of using it. The battery life is easily drained just after 6 hours on standby mode, I already checked and optimized all the apps just to maximize the life span of the battery. However I was amazed on how fast the connection between WIFI and Data Connection. It really nailed to core for those who wants fast and reliable connection. Well, for me, that's it... :-)
I bought this phone 2weeks ago and its really great and affordable. I really enjoy this phone. long battery life and very fast processor and clear camera.
