In the smartphone race, iTel climbed up the ladder within a short period. The firm has been getting attention in Nigeria with its budget smartphones since it emerged in the smartphone market back in 2007. iTel Mobile recently released iTel S16 to its budget phone series. The latest addition is designed to be budget-friendly, durable, and reliable to meet anyone’s needs today. The iTel S16 Price in Nigeria is expected to range from N35-38K.
The camera specification is perhaps one of the features some buyers consider first and iTel has tried at least when you consider the price tag. There is an 8MP sensor on the front camera housed in a punch hole notch. Meanwhile, on the back, the phone features three camera lenses which consist of an 8MP primary lens, a 5MP Macro lens, and a depth sensor. We can’t say the phone has the best camera, but the camera specs on paper when compared to the price looks okay and should fit the intended audience pretty well.
The phone has a large 6.5-inch HD display, which is a benefit because it provides more room for users to view content. It comes with a 720-pixel resolution, which is not bad for a phone of this kind. We would typically say at least 1080pixel will be much better for more clarity, but it is certainly good for a budget entry-level device.
The device is powered by a Quad-core Unisoc SC7731E processor which is clocked at 1.3GHz. It is coupled to 1GB RAM and 32GB internal storage which can be expanded with a micro sd card.
The battery is a top performer in this position with intelligent power management. The iTel S16 gets a 4,000 mAh battery. It may not be the biggest around but iTel claims it can last all day long on a single charge.
