I bought this phone in December 2017 and untill now I`m pleased. Everything works fine. Good internet speed, quick phone, enough RAM for smooth app working, wonderful sound system, excelent cameras, supperb call sound, etc, etc. The only thing that I really hate is the
2800mAh battery...Its too short...ends quickly...it only lasts a day!so, at the end of the day, its a good device. You can buy it :-)
nikogeo, 27 Dec 2017idol 5 have an octa core not quad coreDepends on the variant
for 128 euro is just fine, we saw and we use more expensive phones that in conclusion at everyday use are worst!!
George, 25 Nov 2017It has 8cores and 2 Sims ready ability. Price low 128 euro in Greece. The awkward about idol 5 is the even the idol 3 have better futures. That why cost only 130 euro.
Zero, 05 Nov 2017Alcatel is awful in terms of updates. Better go to Motorola at first and then to Xiaomi.I'm thinking of getting the G5S phones but having no compass sound like a deal breaker for me.
Gino76, 29 Oct 2017Any sign of Nougat 7.1.1 or 7.1.2 the very least? And are Alcatel known for quick-ish updates?... moreAlcatel is awful in terms of updates.

Any sign of Nougat 7.1.1 or 7.1.2 the very least? And are Alcatel known for quick-ish updates? And if you were to choose between Alcatel, Motorola & Xiaomi in terms of updates which would u choose?
What happened? Alcatel has impressed me with Idol X and Idol 3 and now.........
don't really know why alcatel still making phones, only a handful would buy it.. even that with below 200 eu. That's a pure mobile phone making company whom are nowhere lol. They were horrible when they started, they're just terrible nowadays. I'm quite surprised how the Asians have taken over the mobile market. What they lack is a decent software.
