Alcatel GO FLIP V Design
The Alcatel GO FLIP V is easy to hold in your hand thanks to the rounded edges that follow its sleek, curved design. Compact and lightweight, the GO FLIP V is very portable and more comfortable to use during long conversations. Due to its convenient shape and size, this phone will fit right into any hand, pocket, or bag. Easy to open, the classic flip cover shields the buttons and internal screen from daily wear and tear or accidental dialing while the phone is in your purse or pocket.
The device has a premium matte finish on the front and a checkerboard pattern on the back for better grip. An external display measuring 1.44 inches on the front of the device gives it a modern appearance. At the top, above the external display, the device boasts a 2 MP camera. The Alcatel logo is inscribed below the external display. Opening the flip reveals the 2.8-inch internal screen and large back-lit keys. Those who have low vision will appreciate the big, bold letters on the keypad.
On the textured back, the device has a built-in mobile speaker at the top and Verizon branding at the bottom. A 3.5 mm headphone jack and micro USB charging port are on the left edge. Take a peek at the right side, where you get volume controls and a dedicated camera button. Inside the back panel is a microSD card slot and a SIM card slot. Just pop in your SIM card, and you’re ready for action.
Alcatel GO FLIP V Camera
Take a shot with the device’s 2 MP camera and capture images and videos of everything you see. Although this is a flip phone camera, its picture quality is on par with other phone cameras available in a similar price range. Under good lighting conditions, the phone can click decent photos to share with friends & family. It can also record 720p videos at 30fps. With its straightforward interface and accessible features, the camera app is ideal for people who want to take photos without learning complicated techniques like aperture settings or manual mode. You can quickly launch the camera application by pressing the dedicated camera button on the right side of the device.
Alcatel GO FLIP V Display
The phone features a 2.8-inch internal and a 1.44-inch external display. The primary screen is 2.8 inches, which is pretty big for a flip phone. Good viewing angles and content visibility in direct sunlight are two aspects that help the GO FLIP V stand out. In addition, the screen has enough brightness to help you easily read messages, emails, and phone numbers when outside.
Check your incoming calls without revealing the internal display. With the 1.44-inch secondary display, you have the benefit of two screens in one phone. You can also check the date, time, and remaining battery on the external screen as well. Both displays work well, and we encountered no issues while using the device.
Alcatel GO FLIP V Battery
You can stay connected for hours at a time thanks to the long-lasting battery life of the Alcatel GO FLIP V. With its 1350mAh battery, the device offers talk times of up to 6.5 hours and standby times of up to 300 hours with 4G LTE enabled. After a day of constant calling, texting, and web browsing, we were only able to use 50% of the battery in this phone. As a result, the device may last over two days under normal usage. So, stay in constant touch with your friends and family without worrying about battery life with the Alcatel GO FLIP V.
Alcatel GO FLIP V Storage
Thanks to its 8GB internal memory, this mobile phone has plenty of room for photos, videos, music, and everything else. According to us, 8 GB is sufficient space for a regular flip phone. However, if you wish to expand the device’s storage, there is also a dedicated slot for a microSD card on the device to enable you to expand the storage space externally.
Alcatel GO FLIP V Performance
This phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor and comes with 1 GB RAM. The device boasts an intuitive interface that makes switching between multiple apps a breeze. With 4G support, users can enjoy high-speed data transfers and clear quality voice calls. You get HD Voice and Voice over Wi-Fi (VoWiFi) for making phone calls over a Wi-Fi network. Through a mobile hotspot, you can also share your internet connection with up to ten devices at once.
The spacious keys make texting with friends and family easy and fun. Those who might need to use the device in low light conditions or late at night can take advantage of the backlit keypad. The phone can transmit messages as they are typed using Real-Time-Text (RTT) and Text Telephone (TTY) technology. This can be helpful in emergencies for fast communication. The GO FLIP V is also great for people who require hearing aids. Hearing compatibility has been ensured at M4/T4 levels, the highest rating possible.
As far as performance goes, the Alcatel flip phone is right up there with other flip phones on the market. The device focuses on simplicity, and this becomes apparent in its interface. Thus, as a whole, the device lived up to our expectations for daily use.
