Panorama pictures taken with the MP main camera of the Alcatel 5 turn out slightly too dark, while the light and dark areas are well delineated. Details are also maintained and the colors are well defined. Close-ups also turn out too dark, and our test picture shows a slight blurriness at the edges of objects when the light conditions are not quite ideal.
Under bad light conditions, the image contents become very pixelated but are still recognizable and surpass the low-light quality of our comparison camera.
Aside from the options to select among various modes and adjust the resolution, the Alcatel 5 does not offer any options to influence the quality of the camera recordings.

This confirms the impression of our test pictures that all the color tones, including the gray and black tones, are reproduced too dark. While our test chart is also reproduced too dark under controlled light conditions, details and fine structures are kept, and we only notice minimal blurriness at the bottom edges.

The Alcatel 5 can be used easily outdoors. Reflections of the environment remain within limits and the brightness is just sufficient to make the display content visible even in strong sunlight. The viewing angles of the IPS panel of the Alcatel 5 are extremely stable. The display content can be read from any position imaginable, without distortions or color shifts.

In our benchmark tests, the Alcatel smartphone only manages to reach one of the last places in our comparison list, with the PCMark benchmark being aborted several times with an error message.

In this state, the device feels very hot, and it cannot be ruled out that there might be some damage due to the temperatures becoming too high after prolonged usage. The speakers of the Alcatel 5 do not achieve a high volume and are mainly able to reproduce sounds in the mid-range well.
