Battery and Connectivity
An 1,800mAh li-ion battery supplies all the needed power to the device.

The Alcatel One Touch Pop D5 5038D is a good device overall with a few misses. While the low RAM limits from running too many apps at once, the poor front camera makes the device unsuitable for clicking selfies. Consider this if you are not a selfie freak and looking for a basic smartphone that looks good.
