Alcatel had introduced three budget devices today, the Alcatel A3, Alcatel U5 and Alcatel A5 LED. All of these devices are budget offerings by Alcatel, and the Alcatel A5 LED is arguably the most interesting one, as it comes with a customizable LED back which can light up in various colors when you receive a notification. That being said, we’ve already talked about all of these smartphones, and are here to take a closer look at specs of the Alcatel A3 and Alcatel U5, read on.
