Vodafone has added another new Alcatel device to its pre-paid line up of devices, with the Alcatel U5 4G available for $99 through your local Vodafone store.

The Alcatel U5 4G was originally announced during the usual frenzy thats better known as Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona earlier this year and though not a device that will win a lot of awards, if you’re more in the market for a budget device that offers some mid range specs, then the U5 might be the device for you.

So what do you get for the $99 price tag, let’s have a look:

While it’s good to see budget devices coming with a somewhat close to current Android software – the Alcatel U5 comes with Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) – right out of the box, it’s probably a good bet it won’t see any update past this, though we hope there’s at least some security updates/patches. That said the main selling point is absolutely the price.

If you’re interested in finding out more about the Alcatel U5 4G, you can either visit the Vodafone Australian website, though you currently cannot purchase the device from website – instead you will need to head to your local Vodafone store.
