iTel mobile is no doubt a fan favorite in Africa, though I used to advise against patronizing the OEM of most of their devices, users seem to “not give a f**k what I think, and go ahead and buy their products (a few do come back to lay complaints about the device, which most times, I tend to ignore ).
In any case, since my dear readers love the itel brand, I would do my best to reduce the scatting articles on their products (but I plead with them to also improve the standards and specs of their devices, after, if the product is good, I won’t write bad about it – see my article on itel it1701 inote prime)
iTel mobile smartphones, prices and where to buy
There are quite a number of itel devices floating around, the popular ones being the itel beyond 3G and the itel grand. The new tablet on the block itel prime is also doing good for itself, and has sold out on Jumia Nigeria (still available to Kenyans and Ghanians) but still available on Konga if you would want to own one.
Here’s the current itel smartphones you snag if you are an itel lover.
Itel IT 1501 (itel inote Grand): The itel inote grand is the first itel Grand device. Features a superb IPS HD 5.0 inches screen, runs on Google’s Kitkat 4.4 OS. A rather small RAM of 512MB but a manageable ROM of 4gig. The device is a dual sim smartphone and it supports multi touch as well. It features an 8mp shooter as it’s primary camera (back camera) with LED flash light and auto focus. The front is adorned with 3mp front camera for your Skype and video calls and selfies. Priced anywhere from 15,000 – 20,000 Naira, the device is a hot seller on Konga with most sellers already out of stock. Want to own it? [BUY NOW]
Itel IT 1502 (itel inote Grand II): The grand tablet of itel with model 1502 is still hotly selling in Nigeria and Africa. With 1GB of RAM, 8GB of ROM and a quad-core CPU, itel did put in their all to see the tablet wasn’t a kill joy. Featuring Android 4.4 KitKat OS, and 3G high-speed internet, if you are looking for a somewhat cool Chinese tab to see you thru your daily ramblings, the 7.0″ itel Grand 2 is just right for you then. Priced anywhere from 18,000 – 25,000 Naira if you get to see it, as the device is almost depleted as well. Want to own it? [BUY NOW]
Itel 1452 Smartphone: itel it1452 is a low-budget, low specs device from itel. The device features a single core CPU, Android 4.4, 512MB RAM, 4GB ROM amongst others. If it interests you, you could get it for around 13,000 – 16,000 Naira. Want to own it? [BUY NOW]
Itel 1453 Smartphone: Same specs with the it 1452, with the addition of 3G high speed internet. [BUY NOW]
Itel 1403 Smartphone: Probably the bunch, with a RAM of 256MB and a ROM of 2GB, this 4.0′ smartphone isn’t the best you would find, but at it’s price range of 7,500 – 12,000. I guess you could pick one up and gift it to your 5 year-old child or something. [BUY NOW]
itel it1701 inote prime: Probably the most worked on device from itel stables, this 7.0″ tablet is my favorite from the Chinese OEM. Boasts a Quad-core CPU, android 4.4 Kitkat OS, 3G fast internet, Bluetooth 4.0, crazy 8.0MP rear camera and a 5.0MP camera in front, all for a miserly amount (around 17,000 – 20,000Naira). The device is so good it’s sold out on Jumia!, However, if you still want to own the tab, 3rd party sellers are retailing. [BUY NOW]
